Which set of ram to use for NP8268-S/ P150SM-A???

Recommended Posts

Still patiently wait for my NP8268-S to come in the mail, should only be a couple days away now. As ive been waiting, ive been thinking about all the mods im going to be completing on it. Then I had noticed I have alot of laptop RAM laying around the house, and just wanted to get a idea from everyone on the boards here, on which way I should go.

1- Stick with the stock ram thats coming with it, (2x4) 8gb ddr3 1333, Dont know what manufacture.

2- Swap in (2x8) 16gb ddr3 1333 Crucial ram?

3- Swap in (2x4) 8gb ddr3 1600 Ramaxel ram?

Im tempted to swap in the faster Ramaxel ram.... but then again dont know if thats going to be of any benefit to going with slightly slower, double the ram 16gb? Also Ive never even heard of Ramaxel, I dont know if there a good manufacture, or "re branding" of ram units.

Please bare with me in this probably simple question. Ive built many desktops, laptops, for myself / friends / work, but stopped about 8 years ago. So in that 8 years some things have changed, and are new to me, and im still trying to get a handle on whats in the market today. Primarily the naming nightmare, lol i7 this, i3 that, gtx 780m is a re branded what?.... lol so on, and so on.

Thank you for any help of insight.

I would choose 8gb @ 1600MHz. It seems that for gaming 8GB is sufficient and some game titles show that there is a performance gain comparing 1300mhz and 1600 mhz,

      I have a p150sm which has a seemingly dead 780m due to a perpetual error 43 which came after a big BSOD about 6 months ago. I upgraded the laptop to a 980m and modded the inf files. The upgrade was perfectly fine for a week. One day, i left the laptop and something related to sleep or power may have caused the laptop to shut off. Since then, the laptop with the 980m won't boot. I tried many things like resetting cmos, taking out the hardware and putting it back in, and resetting bios, and buying a 230W adapter. Nothing worked. The laptop works fine with the old dead 780m in there, but now when the 980m is in there, holding the power button generates a green light flash and then the power LED goes back to orange. No sounds, maybe one tick, and that's it. What is left to try?

      Hello,
      dell has ECC supported RAM for their Precision laptops sold with a mobile Xeon CPU. Does anyone here know, what is the manufacturer of this ECC modules and where they could be bought?

      Hello Fellow Tech Gurus!

      I am having a huge headache after upgrading the ram memory of my m17x r3. 

      First let me start by saying I have been experiencing issues with my current ram setup recently, and so i decided to replace the ram inside of my computer, thinking they had gone out on me. It originally came with x4 2gb memory sticks, and as I started to experience issue, I started to removed them, and I was down to 1 2gb stick. It seems to me ram slots 1 & 2 are not working properly as when I put ram memory into them I would get BSOD in 5-10 mins of computer usage after boot. So I am thinking the slots have gone out. I also tested each slot individually and still same effect.

      So I went on the try out slots 3 & 4 under the keyboard, which seems to work just fine when I use only 1 ram chip in one or the other. But the problem occurs when I try and fill both ram slots in slots 3 & 4 under the keyboard with crucial 2x 8 gb of ram sticks, which total to 16gb total ram memory.

      BSOD and freezing occurs like crazy. But if I use just one of the ram sticks in either slot, no problem.

      I dunno if this is hardware or software. I am think that my motherboard is on its way out the door, but any suggestions you all have would be great. I have already clean installed win 7, and is currently running bios A10 (unlocked, I believe)

      I would also like to note that my motherboards internal vga is not detected, and just noticed this a few days ago upon trying to figure out the ram situation.

      other issues is my laptop battery is pretty much dead, and the only for my computer to cut on is if the AC adapter is connected

      I would also like to know can 1x 16gb 1600 ram stick run in my computer? or is it not supported by my motherboard? 

      thanks!

      Привет. Помогите, мне грустно.
      Существует clevo p150em, недавно обновленный с 7970 до 8970 м (от 150 см)
      Bios, R.2.0 / 1.02.17EC v3b / 1.02.11EC.
      Когда он был установлен 7970 м, в BIOS на линии gpu это было 7970 м. После установки 8970m, NVIDIA пишет вместо 8970m.
      Драйверы на 8970m не установлены, либо синий экран, либо ноутбук замерзает. Windows 10 1713.
      Я пробовал разные версии драйверов, все равно. Что вы посоветуете?
      8970m vbios  VER015.041.000.000.044964 BR44964.009 it s DELL? 
       
      ps. when I bought 7970m for a place of 670m. At 7970m there was also a problem with the drivers, but I somehow skipped it.

      Hi all
       
      So I just got myself a ram upgrade for the laptop which is a mech-15hs, and to my disappointment, it doesnt support XMP, but would thaiphoon burner enable that? The chips I bought are supposed to "auto-overclocked" to highest potential, but obviously it just stays stock without xmp.
       
      These are the chips: https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/HX426S15IB2_16.pdf
       
      The PNP profile is 15-17-17-35-60-467 & 2666mhz and thats the same first timings as the first xmp profile at 15-17-17, so is there any point of even getting thaiphoon burner at this point? Or would using that enable xmp and auto overclock and such? 
       
      The CPU is an i7-7700hq, and I dont think anyone has gotten past 2666mhz with it anyway, so am I just beating a dead horse with TB? Or are my chips really that good out the box?
