Not compatible with HP ZE4500

John M., Newegg
8 February 2013
  • Summary: I don't know how to make a recommendation whether this will work for you or not. I tried two of them in my aging ZE4500 laptop and neither one worked. I decided to order from a site that has more information in the description.
  • Pros: It's a good price. It's made by Crucial, one of the top brands. Shipping is free. It has a lifetime guarantee (assuming it's compatible in the first place).
  • Cons: There's not enough information provided in the part description to know if it will work for you or not. If the description said "low density" or similar, it might help. PC2700 is not always PC2700. Compatibility depends on the specific configuration of your product, and maybe even the BIOS revision.

Good RAM, but ...

Thomas H., Newegg
29 October 2010
  • Summary: I'm sure this is somehow self-evident to the more alpha geeks among you, but I matched the (more complete) specs I had printed on the old stick to the (less-complete) spec listed on Newegg (less) and still no dual-channel.
  • Pros: Solid RAM for the type it is, memtest86+ likes it. Crucial modules I've had before seems to be good.
  • Cons: Not fully compatible with older sticks of the same P/N. I bought this to upgrade an older box that already had a stick of Crucial CT6464Z0B in it, and bought this partly to maintain dual-channel memory mode. This new CT6464Z40B runs fine, but only in single-channel mode; it won't dual-channel wit...

Memory mismatch

Cliff H., Newegg
16 September 2009
  • Summary: Ordered this memory for a Dell Inspiron 1100. Both Dell and Crucial recommend this speed memory with a max of 1gig(512 X 2). System would not boot with new memory even after bios flash. Other trouble shooting site with same problems recommends DDR266 (PC 2100) 1gig (512 X 2)
  • Pros: Newegg has refunded funds from order so correct memory can be purchased. Thank you newegg for your always top of the line service!
  • Cons: System would not boot after recommend memory was bought.

New packaging is terrible

Anonymous, Newegg
18 January 2009
  • Summary: Stay away until Crucial turns their packaging design back over to engineers instead of accountants.
  • Pros: It works. I've used Crucial memory for eight years and have never had issues with stability or DOA parts.
  • Cons: The new packaging is a disaster. The modules are completely unprotected from ESD, and they come in those ubiquitous plastic nightmares with the edges sealed so they must be cut open. Removing them without flexing them is a delicate exercise. My first Crucial memory came in a sturdy cardboard box ...

20 November 2007
  • Summary: I need to find some real 800Mhz memory that will run at 1.8-1.9v
  • Pros: Seems to run good at JEDEC Spec. Its alot cheaper than when I bought it.
  • Cons: Can't run at 800Mhz,2.2v on P6N Diamond, MB just beats it up.

Won't work in my rig.

Anonymous, Newegg
22 October 2007
  • Summary: This is the RAM that the Crucial website said I needed for my notebook. Plugged them both in and nothing would come up on the screen when powered on. Tried them individually and nothing would happen either. Put the old memory back in and it works fine.
  • Pros: I don't think it's bad RAM.
  • Cons: It doesn't work in my Dell Inspiron 1100.
