Is PC2-3200 the same as PC3200 RAM? Both are 240 pin, DDR2 SDRAM. I have a dead hp a1020n, and I was trying to see if the ram will work in a hp a1240n.

PC2-3200 ram is DDR2 ram which is 240 pin & not compatible with PC3200 ram which is 184 pins.
The manufacturers tend to use different designations, probably to confuse us. PC2-3200, DDR2-400, DDR2 PC-3200 are all the same thing. DDR PC-3200 is 184 pin RAM and not compatible with DDR2 PC2-3200 240 pin RAM.
It's getting harder to find 168 pin SDRAM RAM and 184 pin DDR SDRAM, though you'd think there would be tons of them from old PCs. Apparently not. They seem to disapear.
And likely not a problem with this RAM, but most motherboards expect 1.8VDC RAM. Some performance RAM needs voltages like 2.2VDC or even higher to perform properly. If your MB can't go that high, the RAM may not be worth it to you.
First time I see pc3200 ram listed as 240 pin....interesting....put that pc3200 ram into that HP a1240n pc...if it fits then your set.
Yeah I'm going to try it. it's my sis's pc so I was hoping to get an answer before I had to take the time to drive out to her. So I'll probably get out there some time this week. I'll let you know if it works out.What We Do In Life, Echoes In Eternity....
