Memory in Dell Dimension 9150

Jump to solution

I have a Dell Dimension 9150 and I know that it has 4 slots for memory DDR2. Dell states that 4 x 1Gb is the maximum.

I was wondering if 2 x 2Gb is working as well since the 2Gb DDR2 are very cheap now.

Anyone experience with this ?

The 9150 supports a maximum of 1gb per slot, 4gb total.

johanpol,

Your computer takes 1 GB memory modules. Many customers buy their RAM from Crucial.

buol,

The Dimension 9100, 9150, XPS 400 PCs support two channels of four sockets of PC3200 400MHz, PC4200 533MHz, and PC5300 667MHz DDR2 memory. The maximum memory configuration is 4GB (four 1 GB sticks).
C6796 DIMM, 1GB, DDR2, 400MHz, 128X64, 2RX8
C6844 DIMM, 1GB, DDR2, 533MHz, 128X64, 2RX8
U8622 DIMM, 1GB, DDR2, 667MHz, 128X64, 2RX8

This site agrees with the above specifications.
Our site is incorrect in offering 2GB 800MHz memory sticks.

I am confused on this issue.  Although the Dell specs state 4Gb max and 1Gb per slot, as other replies have confirmed, Dell also sells a 2Gb module (Kingston Part# : KTD-DM8400B/2G, Dell Part# : A0767525) specificially listed as being compatible with the Dimension 9150 and XPS 400:

Guess I'll have to buy it and see if it works.  Anyone tried these?

i have the same computer w/ 4 512mb pc2-4300 (ddr2 533) chips, and one just failed, so i need to upgrade and saw the same thing on the dell site just now, tho w/ corsair.  so did you do this? if so, what is the result?  if not...anyone, what would be the fastest memory upgrade possible here? whether 4-1 gb or 2-2gb sticks ...both are rated 800ghz..will it run at that? thanks!

chris, thanks for the quick reply. on the corsair page it seems to only show the 533 mhz stick, their vs1gb533d2.  and on the dell page the 1gb sticks are 800mhz, only the 512k is 667.  so is it correct that the 9150 can't run at 800mhz?   and is it possible to order th u8622 dimm running at 667 that you list above? and it will it run at 667? ( i assume so, but i don't see it as an option on the corsair page.)

addendum: i just checked the crucial page and it seems to show that 4-1gb sticks running at 667 is the max (tho they also show an 800 offering from 'ballistix' that the reviews indicate only will run at the slower speed).  it does seem that to  run at 667 that i'll have to upgrade all 4 of my 533 chips, i.e. get 4 1gb at 667 to max out, correct?

I had to return the memory.  I spoke with a technician and confirmed that the 9150 only supports 4Gb max, so I sold the 9150.  It is disappointing that Dell hasn't yet corrected the site; the technician I spoke with agreed that the site was incorrect and said he would submit information to get it corrected.  That was nearly 2 months ago.

Six months later, Dell still hasn't corrected the site.  I wish I had found this thread *before* ordering the 2GB sticks.  (I wish even more that Dell had not recommended the incorrect memory in the first place or at least fixed the error when it was first reported -- very disappointing.)

I'm facing a similar problem  the site tells me I have a dimension 9150 /xps 400 of my four memory slots I have 2 Samsung 512 mb sticks in slots 1 & 3 I also have Windows xp os, which is 32 bit? I'm told I can't upgrade to a 64 bit- I figured I could order 2 1GB sticks and which slots would they go into. This machine is not a true dual core. the part that is recommeded is A0743513. I would like the max ghz possible & I do not believe an 800 mghz can be used, such as the Corsairs. I have been search other websites- but when I see 128x64- I'm thinking this is not compatiple. Am I understanding this correctly? Any other suggestions would be helpful.
