A dual inline memory module (DIMM) consists of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). The gold pins on the bottom of the DIMM provide a connection between the module and a socket on a larger printed circuit board. The pins on the front and back of a DIMM are not connected to each other.
184-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR SDRAM memory for desktop computers. Standard 184-pin DIMMs are available in PC1600 DDR SDRAM, PC2100 DDR SDRAM, PC2700 DDR SDRAM, and PC3200 DDR SDRAM.
To use DDR memory, your system motherboard must have 184-pin DIMM slots and a DDR-enabled chipset. A DDR SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM DIMM socket. (Information about which memory technology your system uses is included in the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool.)
The number of black components on a 184-pin DIMM can vary, but it always has 92 pins on the front and 92 pins on the back, for a total of 184. 184-pin DIMMs are approximately 5.25 inches long and 1.25 inches high, though the heights can vary. While 184-pin DIMMs and 168-pin DIMMs are approximately the same size, 184-pin DIMMs have only one notch within the row of pins.

Alright, I have a HP G70 120 EA laptop, I use Photoshop on it a lot, but a times the laptop struggles to do what I`m doing in Photoshop, so what I`d like to know and do, is get the best or maximum RAM for my laptop in order for it not to heat up so much.
I also know that having an SSD would help, but I`m on a small budget.
Any help or info would be great,
Here is my Scan: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/scanview/52960AAB31D926C3
HP's website states that I need to use the same size RAM in each slot, however this desktop came pre-installed with 9GB RAM: 4X2GB and 1X1GB. I would like to add at least 4GB, but preferably the full 16GB the OS (Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit) allows. What is the best way to configure this? If I understand correctly, I shouldn't just add an 8GB stick to the open slot? Would I be able to take out the 1GB module and add 2 4GB modules? Or do I have to buy 4X4GB modules so that they're all the same size? Obviously, I don't want to spend more money than I have to, but I want to do it correctly. Please advise.
I need to know how much memory I can add to the exsiting 4 GB in my HP Pavilion g6-1209sa laptop (product ID A5G99EA#ABU).
Below are the Memory Information from HP Advanced System Diagnostics.

Serial Number: ########
Part Number: M471B5273DH0-CH9
Memory Size: 4096 MB
Memory Speed: 1067 MHz
Memory Type: DDR3
Type Detail: Synchronous
DIMM 2: Not Installed
Device Locator: Bottom Slot 2
The following information are from CPU-Z:
DMI Physical Memory Array
usage: System Memory
max capacity: 8192 MBytes
max# of devices: 2
DMI Memory Device
designation: Bottom - Slot 1
total width: 64 bits
data width: 64 bits
size: 4096 MBytes
DMI Memory Device
designation: Bottom - Slot 2
total width: 8 bits
data width: 8 bits
I was advised in HP community forum that the G6 service manual specifies a maximum capacity of 6GB of my laptop model, so only 2 GB to add.
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02968997.pdf (Page 3, 25, 56)
However, your scanner says I can add another 4 GB (8 GB total).
Would you please advise me whether I should trust your scanner results or the offical (generic) G6 service manual?
Thanks for help!
August of 2013, a friend at church gave me this Compaq Presario 2004 desktop computer. He and his wife have moved to Minnesota and I have lost contact so cannot ask them. It only came with 256 Mb and the other slot is empty. A friend in Austrailia (I am in Atlanta, Georgia USA); also has an XP computer desktop but not the same brand. He shipped me 2 x 1 Gig and 2 x 2 Gig memory cards this past Wednesday. Will take 10-12 days to get to me. Do the memory cards have to be specific for my computer or will others work? Can I only put just 256 Mb more in the other slot? I am 64 (almost 65) and have never been inside a computer tower. A friend in my building will put the memory in for me. I am confused on how much Mb is 1 Gig and how much is 2? Here is the scan results for my computer: Crucial USA - scan results
It doesn't look like the precision T7910 has been tested with Crucial memory yet. Any ETA on that? Suggestions on what I could buy now? Looking to drop 768 GB in it.
