RAM Upgrade/Vendors

Having Problems with Your Memory or Just Need More?
When upgrading your PC, notebook, or printer RAM, it is extremely important that you provide as much information about your equipment up-front so the correct memory module can be identified. Please include the following information on your Purchase Requisition:
  • Type of Equipment (PC/Notebook, Printer)
  • Name of Equipment Manufacturer
  • Model Number (back panel)
  • Serial Number (back panel)
  • MB of RAM Currently Installed
  • MB of RAM to be upgraded
If a technician recommends the RAM upgrade, please include the following information on all Purchase Requisitions:
  • Brand, Model and Serial Number of Equipment
  • Type of Module, i.e.: SIMM, DIMM, EDO, ECC, or etc.
  • Number of Pins, i.e.: 30-Pin, 72-Pin, or 168-Pin
  • Nano Seconds Required, i.e.: 60ns, 70ns, 80ns, or etc.
  • Parity or Non-Parity
Want to Order Your RAM Upgrades on Your Credit Card ?
Not a problem! Just be aware that memory vendors come and go! A great price today from a vendor who disappears tomorrow ends up costing your department twice. Also, be especially cautious of a vendor who insists on making the sale "right now", will not guarantee the "rock bottom, just for you" price for a couple hours, and cannot provide the 800 number and/or address immediately. Remember orders exceeding $1,000 must be processed via a Purchase Requisition and  Credit Card orders cannot be split to bypass the $1,000 limit.
