  What about doa motherboards?
  I just returned an asus mb that wouldn't post. It got power because the mb
light was on & the processor fan ran, but that was that.
  Another brand did that to me earlier this year. Considering I've only
built five computers in the last year & two mb's were bad that seems high.

    Crucial is the factory retail/wholesale outlet for Micron so the people
you deal with are Micron employees and engineers. I've never had bad Micron
memory, nor Kingston but Samsung has been occasionally screwy - we had to
remove Sansung memory from numerous Handspring Visor Deluxe units when I
worked for the contract rebuilder in Louisville a few years ago - Micron
memory was fine and stayed with the units.

      Ho Peggy, I don't think I've ever heard of anyone 'harming' a Pc by
installing the wrong ram? Usually it either works or you wind up with a no
boot situation that requires resetting the BIOS.. no biggee there tho...If
Crucial says their ram should work, AND if they'll refund your $$ if it
doesn't, then I'd be trusting them. Personally, I've been using Kingston
Value Ram for the last year now and it seems to be the most 'forgiving' ram
around....some of the guys I know that are heavy into overclocking and games
swear by this ram..you might check them out..or if you send me the info on
the old machine I could find out for you...either way I think the idea that
you'd harm the PC by trying this is pretty slim...especially if it's coming
as a recommendation from a reliable ram manufacturer.
      HTH,
      Bruce

        I am working with an older Gateway computer that needs more RAM.
Gateway says they don't manufacture RAM for this particular model any more.
I looked at the RAM avaiilable at Crucial.com, plus have spoken with them.
They have RAM that they say 'should' work in this Gateway.

        In the past, I've accidentally installed the wrong RAM in a PC, and
all that happened is the PC wouldn't boot. However, I've been told that the
Gateway could be harmed if I get this RAM from Crucial and install it.

        Any advice/opinions?

        Thanks
        Peggy G
