ECC is error checking, there is an extra chip on the ram that does this and it's only really useful for server machines. Also ECC runs slower. Non-ECC has better performance and is used in most desktop PCs. There is a lot more to it, but this should give you the answer you need. For more info just type ECC vs. Non-ECC into any search.
8 MB to 2 GB of RAM depending on factors such as non-ECC and ECC technology.
The PC2-5300U is non-ECC Unbuffered RAM, which is the most common type of RAM that does not check for errors. The PC2-5300E RAM is ECC RAM or error correcting. The two will not work together. ECC RAM will only work in motherboards that support it. The E and U at the end of the names indicate the ECC and Unbuffered status Insert mode . The question was about 5300P, not 5300U memory. The 5300P memory is registered with Parity whereas 5300E is unbuffered. That means there is no buffer (or register) which holds the data temporarily to additionally help with data integrity.
ECC (Error Correcting Code) detects and corrects an error down to a single bit. Although slower than non-ecc RAM and more expensive, it is more reliable.
NO, Only FB-DIMM can be used \
servers and high end workstations that use fully buffered ECC RAM. Most workstations do not use this type of memory, and you can not mix it with other types, ie: non ECC RAM.
Yes, but take care to use non-ecc modules.
the basic difference between desktop and workstation is that in desktop ecc ram( error checking and correcting ram) is not present while if i talk about in workstation ecc ram is present there as well as workstations are preferred due to higher applixcation like autocadd application,designing application, mechnical designing purpose and also as well as it is certified by isv( international software vendor). simply i can say that workstation are more powerful than desktop.
buffered ram is ram that buffers data before it fully excepts it. its like the same as ecc error correcting code. buffered is better than unbuffered as long as your mother board takes it. you have to check your ram you have now and see if it has it. but be careful of static, it can killl your memory chips and boards.
ECC cost more but is more reliable than non-ECC memory. TRUE
Non-ECC memory cannot be used on a board that is made for ECC memory. ECC memory is a specialized form of error correction memory.
Unplug the ECC fuse. If the fuse does not blow, then hook up the ECC. If the fuse blows then the ECC will need to be replaced.
"Compaq Presario" is the name of a line of computers. It does not refer to any specific model. Without further information, no advice on whether or not it is compatible with your computer can be given.
ECC stands for endocervical curettage. During a colposcopy, ECC is typically taken as a biopsy of the endocervical canal.
Yes, you can. If it "Supports ECC" you're OK, on the other hand, if it REQUIRES ECC, you're out of luck, you need ECC but on some BIOS you have the option to change the requirement. On most server class machines though, you MUST use ECC Registered and there is no way around it.

ECC - eikaiwa - was created in 1962.
ECC can detect the error but cannot correct it.
The ECC can detect the error, but can not fix the error if two bits of a byte are in error.
There are two types of memories when it comes to supporting ECC (error correction code/circuitry). These are ECC memory (memories which support ECC) and non-ECC (which do not support ECC). ECC helps detect and correct certain types of errors in memory transactions if they occur. ECC memories are a bit slow in performance as there is some time lost in detecting and correcting errors if they occur. Non-ECC memories are more common, faster and cheaper. ECC memories are recommended for servers and other mission critical applications. Most of system designs and circuits are robust and there are rarely any errors on a PC memory bus, so non-ECC memories are good enough for general computing applications. Most computer motherboards support both type of memories but still if one should check motherboard and BIOS specifications before investing in ECC memory type. - Neeraj Sharma
ECC stands for Error Checking and Correction. This type of memory module is used to correct memory errors within the computer registry. ECC memory modules generally have 9 chips compared to 8 chips in a non-ECC memory module. This is the easiest way to differentiate the two.
ECC modules can be used in a non-ECC system (though the cost makes it a poor strategy). Buffered modules cannot be used in a system that does not support buffered modules.
