<font color="#E5E5E5">hello this is</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> d mcdonald</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> from tech</font>

skills<font color="#E5E5E5"> in this video</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I'll show you some</font> information about computer memory for example we'll take a look at the<font color="#E5E5E5"> bios</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> in</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">CMOS see if we can find information</font> about system memory and<font color="#CCCCCC"> i'll also</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> show</font> you how to remove and insert<font color="#CCCCCC"> bald sdram</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">ddr ram into your motherboard</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> let's</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">begin</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> here at two examples of dual</font> inline memory modules<font color="#CCCCCC"> this</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> one is a 256</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">megabyte sdram and this one is 256</font> megabytes<font color="#E5E5E5"> ddr ram although they both</font> look very similar<font color="#E5E5E5"> they are slightly</font>

different<font color="#CCCCCC"> the sdram has two notches</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">these</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> kid matches allow you to insert it</font> properly into the motherboard slot<font color="#E5E5E5"> drm</font> only has one notch<font color="#E5E5E5"> sdram has a hundred</font> and<font color="#CCCCCC"> sixty-eight</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> pins</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> for these little</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">contacts on the RAM</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> while</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> ddr has</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> 180</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">for all</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> of a very similar size and look</font> very similarly<font color="#CCCCCC"> they're not physically</font> compatible with each other<font color="#CCCCCC"> here i have a</font> motherboard that<font color="#CCCCCC"> I removed</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> from the</font> computer so you can get a good look at it on the motherboard here are the

memory slots slots are long and rectangular<font color="#CCCCCC"> they have plastic tabs on</font> the end this is what holds the<font color="#CCCCCC"> RAM chips</font> in place<font color="#E5E5E5"> stencil on the motherboard is</font> information about these<font color="#CCCCCC"> round chips in</font> this case it says<font color="#CCCCCC"> dm0</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so we would put</font>

our first memory into the first slot and then this one says<font color="#CCCCCC"> dm1 so we have to put</font> our second memory into the second slot <font color="#E5E5E5">over on the side of the memory it says</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">dr 184 so these slots allow us to put in</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">ddr 184-pin</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> around to install</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> around</font>

first you open up the plastic tabs and then<font color="#E5E5E5"> you line up the notch</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> make sure</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">that your kid</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> notches lined up</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> with the</font> slot<font color="#CCCCCC"> that as</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you insert the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> round</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">there's little</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> plastic holders on the</font> end of the tab<font color="#CCCCCC"> make sure</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that the ram</font>

module slides into that holder on both ends<font color="#E5E5E5"> that will hold the ramen place and</font> then once the<font color="#CCCCCC"> ram</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> is in place you push</font> straight down on the<font color="#CCCCCC"> ram chip</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> locking</font> those plastic tabs in place<font color="#E5E5E5"> you don't</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">want to rock the memory</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> side-to-side</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">could break it off</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> so you want to make</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">sure you push straight down</font> and the plastic<font color="#CCCCCC"> tabs</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> should click and</font> lock into place<font color="#E5E5E5"> and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> then once it's</font> locked into place<font color="#E5E5E5"> those plastic tabs</font> have little holes here that will hold it

in place<font color="#CCCCCC"> here</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> i have an</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> sdram module as</font> you can see<font color="#E5E5E5"> it will physically fit down</font> into this dr slot<font color="#CCCCCC"> but with those</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> kid</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">notches</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> i'm not able</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to push it into</font> place with enough force you may be able to get one side to<font color="#E5E5E5"> lock in</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">so</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you've</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> got</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to make sure</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that you know</font> what type of slots that you have and then insert the proper<font color="#CCCCCC"> ram</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> otherwise you</font> could damage the slots<font color="#CCCCCC"> and or the ram</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">modules to remove the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> ram</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> modules simply</font> press the plastic tabs that will pop the

<font color="#CCCCCC">ramp up out of its</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> older and they can</font> remove it from the slot and then place it into your<font color="#CCCCCC"> anti-static bag</font> here's an example of a motherboard that supports two different types of<font color="#CCCCCC"> ram</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> we</font> have<font color="#E5E5E5"> sdram slots here</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> two slots and then</font>

we have ddr ram<font color="#E5E5E5"> can't have both</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> sdram</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">ddr ram and at</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the same time you can</font> only have one or the other in this case<font color="#E5E5E5"> we're using one stick of</font> ddr around<font color="#CCCCCC"> going</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to boot up this</font> computer and take a look at the<font color="#E5E5E5"> bios and</font>

CMOS information<font color="#E5E5E5"> secret information</font> about our<font color="#CCCCCC"> graham and then i'm also going</font> to install a second chip<font color="#CCCCCC"> so we can see</font> what types of setting changes may be made to our computer looking again at the<font color="#CCCCCC"> biosensor CMOS settings</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> this</font>

computer had one stick of ddr ram installed<font color="#CCCCCC"> i'll</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> put the computer take a</font> look around the<font color="#E5E5E5"> bios and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the CMOS and</font> see if we can find out some information about this<font color="#E5E5E5"> ram module as the computer</font> boots<font color="#E5E5E5"> goes</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to the power-on self-test</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> one</font>

of the<font color="#E5E5E5"> things that completes a memory</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">test once it completes the power-on</font> self-test we can see some information<font color="#CCCCCC"> i</font> press the pause break key on this machine<font color="#E5E5E5"> so we can see memory testing we</font> have 260<font color="#E5E5E5"> 2144 kilobytes of memory rd</font>

round clock is running at 266 megahertz <font color="#CCCCCC">i'll press the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> Delete key and go into</font> the CMOS setup<font color="#CCCCCC"> see if we can find</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> some</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">information about our memory</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> bottom of</font> the standard CMOS<font color="#E5E5E5"> features screen</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> week</font> see the extended memory<font color="#E5E5E5"> and total memory</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">260</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> 2144 kilobytes of memory</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> so this has</font> a 256<font color="#CCCCCC"> megabyte</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> stick of ram it under the</font> advanced chipset features<font color="#CCCCCC"> we can see</font> information about our<font color="#CCCCCC"> dear</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> am clock in</font> our drive control on the<font color="#CCCCCC"> dram clock</font> drive control screen we can see that our

current<font color="#CCCCCC"> front side bus frequency is 200</font> megahertz<font color="#CCCCCC"> our current deram frequency is</font> 266 megahertz and rd round clock is running at 133<font color="#E5E5E5"> megahertz so that tells</font> us some information about our<font color="#E5E5E5"> dear am in</font> this case<font color="#CCCCCC"> RDR</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> around one last setting in</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">this</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> sea mas is under the frequency</font> voltage control in this<font color="#E5E5E5"> case we can</font> enable or disable our<font color="#CCCCCC"> auto detective are</font> dim<font color="#E5E5E5"> and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> our</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> PCI clock in this case it is</font> enabled<font color="#E5E5E5"> so those are some of the main</font> features to look for in the<font color="#E5E5E5"> bios in the</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">CMOS regarding your system memory</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> if you</font> need to replace memory or upgrade<font color="#CCCCCC"> you</font> need to know what type of slots you have <font color="#E5E5E5">what form factor using free around</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> and</font> then also the clock speed and the maximum size that your computer supports

<font color="#CCCCCC">the consult the owners</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> manual of your</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">motherboard to verify the maximum</font> supported ram and then also the maximum speed for instance this machine is using <font color="#CCCCCC">dr 2100</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> ram i can put dr</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> 2700 and this</font> machine and it will still function

<font color="#E5E5E5">although</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> it'll run at the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> 2100 speed now</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">i have installed</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> a second stick of ddr</font> ram<font color="#CCCCCC"> now will boot the computer and see</font> if we can find some information about the new stick around as the<font color="#CCCCCC"> Machine</font> boots<font color="#E5E5E5"> some machines will pause and tell</font>

you that there's been a memory change <font color="#E5E5E5">this one happens to just go through a</font> memory test<font color="#E5E5E5"> and it will display on the</font> screen<font color="#CCCCCC"> how much memory this computer has</font> in it <font color="#CCCCCC">I'll press the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> Delete key and enter the</font>

CMOS setup and then we can look at the settings here<font color="#CCCCCC"> one of</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the main ones</font> that's<font color="#CCCCCC"> going to change as</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the standard</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">CMOS features and down at the bottom</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> are</font> total memory has changed from 262<font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font> 524,000 kilobytes<font color="#E5E5E5"> of around so our</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">second stick of ram was another 256</font> megabytes so 256 plus<font color="#CCCCCC"> 256</font> we have 512 megabytes of<font color="#CCCCCC"> RAM</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> video</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> i</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">demonstrated how to remove and install</font> memory modules<font color="#CCCCCC"> i also</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> show you how to</font> look<font color="#CCCCCC"> into bios and sea monster different</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">memory settings you need to know this</font> information if you're going to be performing ram upgrades<font color="#CCCCCC"> you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> need to know</font> which type of memory you're using and also the amount of memory that the <font color="#CCCCCC">Machine supports you should practice</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">installing and removing ram it's one</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of</font> the easiest ways to perform<font color="#CCCCCC"> a system</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">upgrade it really can increase</font> performance and<font color="#E5E5E5"> it's relatively cheap to</font> do<font color="#E5E5E5"> so practice this on your own and good</font> luck and thanks for watching
