Today I acquired my 2nd MB that requires ddr2 memory, from my usual source, the local scrapyard.
The computer-box is a Lenovo, made about 2008 and has a 160 Gb hdd and2 sticks of 1 Gb memory - I'd assume that it is standard ddr2 memory except that it says in a one line description on each stick "1GB,DD2 DIMM,F", (marked as made by PNY). I have to wonder if it's counterfeit and the makers just couldn't spell ddr2; however, I was able to find a few references to dd2 memory by DAGS, which mostly referred to PC2-4200 memory.
So far, after disassembling, cleaning, replacing the cmos battery and reassembling the box, I've not had any luck starting it, not really surprising considering I paid a couple bucks for it. I've got five different ddr2 sticks now (actually 2 dd2 sticks and 3 ddr2 sticks) ,3 different working power supplys, and just downloaded some tech info from the Lenovo site, but I don't know if that's gonna be enough to get it running. Anyway, just curious if anyone else is seeing ddr2 memory marked as dd2. (Okay, I guess I'm gloating a little bit too, but know I'm really not entitled to at this point.)
Thanks in advance for any info, Mike
