tc2120 Memory upgrade

Hello,

I am going to upgrade my 256MB of DDR ECC Registered RAM, but i have bought a non-registered dimm of 512MB PC2100 DDR ECC 2.5.

When i try to boot up the server it beeps, and doesnt boot.

Now i wonder, is there any switch in the motherboard to make it accept non-registered memory?

Thanks a lot,
joan.

Make sure that you are using correct memory for the upgrade. You do not need to mess around with the switches on motherboard.

Following are memory options available from HP:

128MB of Advanced ECC PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM Memory Kit (1 x 128 MB) 287494-B21
256MB of Advanced ECC PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM Memory Kit (1 x 256 MB) 287495-B21
512MB of Advanced ECC PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM Memory Kit (1 x 512 MB) 287496-B21
1024MB of Advanced ECC PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM Memory Kit (1 x 1024 MB) 287497-B21

However, you may also want to check Kingston since it might be cheaper.

Hope it helps.

Re: tc2120 Memory upgrade

Yes, i have purchased a kingston memory:

KVR266X72C25/512 512MB 266MHz DDR ECC
CL2.5 DIMM

The main problem is that this memory is non-registered, and the tc2120 seems to require only registered memory.

I thought that the motherboard could accept either registered and non-registered memory, but looks like i'm wrong, because it can't initialize the memory on boot (long beep).

Any ideas are welcome
thanks,
joan.

Re: tc2120 Memory upgrade

Joan,

You have purchased wrong memory.
This is what you can use for the tc2120:
Kingston Part Number
KTC7494/256 256MB
KTC7494/512 512MB
KTC7494/1G 1GB

Virtually any configuration up to 4GB can be reached using combination of Kingston's 256, 512MB, and 1GB modules.

Cheers.
