No you have to change the whole system build to change from DDR to SD or SD to DDR.

There is two types. There is DDR notebook RAM and there is DDR desktop ram. They can't be used vin each other (notebook RAM can't be used in a desktop) unless (in rare circumstances) you happen to have a notebook ram port on your desktop's motherboard. But no, DDR is a technology. Both desktops and notebooks support this technology because there is notebook DDR and desktop DDR. but notebook DDR can't be put in desktop DDR and vice versa.


No, the slots for DDR2 RAM is different from the DDR RAM. You cannot use DDR RAM with DDR2 slot.


ram doesn't use a cable, but sd and ddr are not compatible


No, you can't use sd ram on a motherboard that specifies DDR memory and vice versa. It matters in terms of speed which type of memory you use, DDR is faster.


It is possible to use pc3200 ddr ram in a PC designed for pc2700 ddr ram, but the pc3200 ram will only run at pc2700. If you want to fully exploit the pc3200 ram then you will have to buy a motherboard that will be able to support a speed equal to pc3200 or greater.


If it's an older computer, you'll probably have DDR ram. If you bought it within the last 12 months, then it's likely that you'll have DDR2


The type of RAM you use is dependant on what your motherboard and CPU can handle. You want to change from DDR to DDR2? Id' recommend getting a new computer.


As long as you have the expansion slot (PCI, APG, PCI-Ex) available; Yes you can.


Since there is no number associated with DDR type memory, it is assumed to be DDR1. The speed of the memory is based on whether the computer can accept it or not.


Motherboards of that era would have had a either a combination of the older SDR SDRAM (PC100 or PC133 RAM) and DDR SDRAM, or just DDR SDRAM.For best performance, you would want to use the DDR slots.


Depending on your motherboard it is most likely because most motherboards can only use one type of ram at a time. So you can only use ddr with more ddr to see more than one stick of ram.


If the motherboard on your computer has some spare slots in it, you can buy RAM from most electronic hardware stores and either pay them to install it or install it yourself. If your motherboard DOESN'T have any spare slots then simply replace the current RAM with higher one. Make sure your purchase RAM compatible with your computer. Most computers today use DDR2 RAM while older computers (such as mine) use DDR RAM.


Yes! You can use higher-specced components in a computer, as long as they have a compatible interface with your motherboard.


Not both at the same time. Most motherboards will be able to support both types of RAM but DDR RAM is much better, due to the double data capability it has. Since RAM prices are quite cheap it would be better if you throw out your SD RAM and buy DDR. No you cannot use both ddr ram and sd ram on the same pc. You have to use either or depending on the motherboard. The slots are different. You can determine what type of memory you have by entering setup in the bios when you turn on your pc. DDR Ram has a slot in the very center of the chip that forms to the slot you plug it into. SD ram has a slot on the chip off set the middle. Hope this answers your question.

No DDR2 and DDR are not compatible and so you can not add DDR2 RAM module in a DDR Slot. Electrical specifications like voltage, signal pinout and even mechanical size and shape of modules are different.


The amount of RAM one needs depends on what the computer is used for and what tasks it faces. A lot of DDR Memory RAM is required for editing video or music. In fact, one requires over four gigabytes of memory and more to edit video. Consider that every change done on the video film has to be read by the computer and then filtered back into the video track combined with all other changes. For regular computer use, writing or even looking at movies, use one or two gigabytes.


No DDR and DDR2 Slots are differant on Motherboard so cant replace each another


The computer is pulling from the hard drive information and is putting into RAM by using software that is burned into the ROM.


Give two uses of RAM in a computer.


no, you cannot, unless you switch to a motherboard that supports DDR dram, the spacings are different on the modules and on the motherboard, so it is impossible to use them.


Yes, the ram built into the card which is ddr2 means nothing to your PC using ddr1 ram they are completely separate. Just like how ddr3 computers can have gddr5 graphics ^^


DDR-2 is the most common and least expensive route, newer CPUs and Motherboards are beginning to use DDR-3, however it is more expensive and the benefits are negligible.A minimum of 4 Gb of ram is recommended for any modern computer. Windows Vista suffers with anything less and Windows 7 RC1 rocks the socks with 4Gb of DDR-2 800 memory.


Random access memory, or RAM, is important if you are going to have a lot of different computer programs running at the same time. Also, some programs require more RAM than others, so depending on what you will use your computer for, you might need more RAM. DDR2 RAM is only compatible with motherboards that are equipped to handle DDR2 RAM. Before adding any DDR2 RAM to your computer, make sure that your motherboard will work with it. Some computer motherboards are compatible with only DDR or DDR3 RAM, which would make your DDR2 RAM worthless and possibly damaging.


no you can not use 400 MHZ ram because (PC2100 @ 266 MHZ ddr) and (PC2700 @ 333 MHZ ddr) are the only chips that are inter changable. PC3200 is 400 MHZ but it has 2 slots not just the one. It does not fit into the same type slot as either PC2700 or PC2100. I was looking at the possibility of a PC2700 ram rated at 400 MHZ but I do not think there is such a thing.


The type of RAM your motherboard supports can only use that type and no other. If you have DDR2, you can not place a DDR or DDR3 module. If you mean can the game run the same on another system with different RAM, then quite possibly, but the speed of that memory may not be suitable for it.
