Will a single 4GB Memory Stick work in an M55 8808-8HU?

2009-02-14, 1:19 AM

This "will" reduce Power consumption allowing a future Video upgrade more available PSU power.

 

The question is will the M55's Motherboard allow a single 4GB Stick of Memory to function vs. two 2GB Sticks?

 

Functioning as in "all or most" of the 4GB's available to XP-Pro, like maybe 3.5GB's.

 

It will also make cooling easier / less restricted and more room for the or a replacement Riser Card.

 

Please, if it will work, let me know.

 

I am not interested in "ARGUING" the merits of doing something / anything else.

 

Best regards,

What is the maximum Memory per slot on an M55 8808-8HU Desktop?

2009-02-14, 14:47 PM

My M55 8808-8HU has two Memory Slots, one is colored Black and the other Green.

 

The Black colored Slot is populated with a single 1GB Stick of Memory.

 

The Green Slot is empty.

 

The Specs indicate the "maximum" Memory for my System is 4GB.

 

I would like to purchase one 4GB Stick vs.. two 2GB Sticks.

 

Does any Forum Member know what the significance of the different colored Memory Slots is?

 

Does any Forum member know what the "maximum" Memory per Slot might be?

 

I would try a 4GB Stick but the cost is significant.

 

By asking for feedback first, I hope to avoid purchasing something that will not work in my System.

 

Best regards,

 

Mike Lynch
