Morning all,

 

 Just want to clarify as I cannot find a straight answer anywhere.

 

I have an N54L can i use ECC memory or does it have to be NON-ECC?

 

one of my RAM modules has gone so looking for the best replacement.

Yes, ECC is supported. Mixing types is not recommended (mixing will disable the error-checking and correcting ability of your EEC memory modules.)

I forgot to mention that the N54L does not accept registered memory.

Can you get unregisteted ecc?

Thanks Bob funnily enough I was looking at that.. ideally don't want to spend that much if I can avoid it. I'd be happy with the 8gb I already have just something a little more reliable..

Fair enough. If you do decide to go over the HP listed maximum of 8GB, you have to get certain modules that are known to work. The unit can support 16GB without problems, but only with certain modules. Those Kingston modules are known to work.

 

The type of ECC memory this unit supports is unregistered ECC. So it's UDIMMs not RDIMMs.

Thanks again Bob very useful. I was reading the thread on he about going up to 16gb and think that's the link I was looking at..
