How to know numbers of pin in RAM?

Q: How to know numbers of pin in RAM?

I want to upgrade my laptop RAM from 4 GB to 6 GB. Before buying the 4 GB RAM I have to know the exact pin of the RAM, and I don't know the exact numbers of pin in the RAM. My laptop is Ideapad Y550 4186. So how can I know the numbers of pins in the RAM without having to open the case? Please help!

A: How to know numbers of pin in RAM?

It's 204 pin, but you need to know more than that.

That's a Lenovoe Ideapad Y550. I entered that make and model into the configurator at and it came back with the following compatible RAM choices for that laptop.

Computer memory upgrades for Lenovo IdeaPad Y550 (All Types) Laptop/Notebook from

3 of those choices are for 2 GB sticks.

You can shop for those same Crucial part numbers from your source or buy 204 pin RAM from another brand as long as it has the exact same specifications.

Hey everybody.

I don't know if the title is a good one for this problem, but here goes.

I have a column that has numbers in this format: 54321-1234

Now, I want to take off the last 4 numbers, and the dash, from all the numbers in the column, using a formula. So that the output would be: 54321.

I want it so the first 5 numbers stay the same, but the dash and last 4 are gone. Is this possible?

This was asked before by KlausdB:

"I have 4 x HDDs on SATA AHCI (Intel Controller) in Native Mode and 1 x ESATA on Win 7 Pro X64.
I noted that looking in Admin. Tools\Computer Management\Storage (as an example) the 1st HDD (Port 0 in the AHCI BIOS) is showing as "Disk 2" instead of my expectation of

"Disk 1".
Selecting the Drive's Properties correctly shows the "Location 0 (Channel 0, Target 0, Lun 0)".
I also note that the Disk Number allocation in Windows will change randomly after some reboots/startups - going anywhere from "Disk 1" to "Disk 4".  I can force/replicate this

behaviour by removing the ESATA drive.
Is this expected behaviour?
It doesn't appear to create any operating issues at this stage, however, is there a way I can force the Drive to always map to (eg) Device 0 --> Disk 1, Device 1 --> Disk 2,


 This was answered by Nicholas Li:

"As far as I know, how the disk is plugged physically and the order it is displayed are not related. For a simple example, if a drive is plugged to SATA interface 4 and it is the only disk, it will be displayed as Disk 0. If there is no related issue about
the disk order, I think we can safely ignore this."

 Because the topic was closed I want to ask a new question here:

I have three SATA hard drives :
Main system/boot drive , WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 0 port
A backup drive, identical WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 1 port
Another dirve, Hitachi 1 TB, connected to the SATA 2 port
When I installed Win 7, only the main drive was connected... and it remains the only drive with active/system/boot partitions.

All three drives reporr correctly in the BIOS, and in the right order, but why is it that only one of the drive (the one on SATA port 1) has a "SATA:" prefix and the others have a "HDD:" prefix ?

Why is it that the assignment of Disk #0, 1, 2 ( as seen in Disk Maanger or DiskPart) does not seem to have nay rhyme or reason?

I would have expected:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port O, to be assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, to be assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, to be assigned as Disk 2

but instead, I have:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, is assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 0, is assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, is assigned as Disk 2

Just curious why that is.

I am assuming there is no way to chagne this. Its not something I would dream of reinstalling Windows 7 to correct ( even if it did correct it).

A:SATA port numbers vs assignemnt of Disk numbers/

Best advice, leave it alone. It may bother your (and others) sense of order but it won't affect how anything works, and no re-installing Windows won't change it.

Well, the answer to your question is YES, but what you are doing is illegal, so I won&#8217;t be able to help you. Besides that, if you enter the number and it does take it, you&#8217;ll have to ACTIVATE it and that should fail because the machine is already activated on the Dell system.

What gives? We have a wireless Linksys system with a G router and G wireless card in the computer having problems. A month or so ago we kept losing the connection and LinkSys recommended putting in the DSN numbers for the connection. They thought that some of the security and spyware protection programs might be interfering with the automatic detection settings. We did that and it seemed to work ok for a while. Now

In the last three days the Network Properties TCP/IP properties, the DSN numbers keep being erased. The TCP/IP setting for the wireless adapter is not there either.

Anyone have any idea what could be up? How do you get the wireless card specific TCP/IP listing back?

I have a form where two languages be entered at the same time, I have got the words and text entered in english and arabic , but when it comes to numbers and dates , it just stays as english . I tried through the control panel and change the neccassary but still the numbers stays english. If I completely in the control panel changed to arabic, all the english date and numbers are in arabic.

Is there a way that when pressing the ALT SHIFT the numerical also change to arabic ( text is fine in arabic ).

A:Arabic numbers

First, what program are you using?

it happens when you dont have an arabic font installed and selected as your text style. For example, if your default font is Times and you switch to arabic keyboard, it will let you type arabic but won't type the arabic numerals.

if you are typing in word, try to change over to an arabic font (not Adobe Arabic).

P.S. you will be able to type english numbers when you switch the keyboard to english and your font is an arabic font.

I've had this dsl modem for a couple years now and have always to my knowledge been able to use it via only one ip number.i've been streaming video using webcamxp and other software/.today my modem began acting stupid by disconnecting once an hour and if I shut off pc of at all,i wind up having to manually reset the modem by unplugging it for a few seconds and then back in again.i eventually noticed that while the webcam is streaming video ,my lan connection on the pc shows the ip number i'm familiar with while my dsl modem shows one that's new(so to speak) I entered both ip numbers in to the webcamxp and found that the modem streams using either ip number..if I go to the what's my ipnumber site,it will display whichever number I have entered in to the webcamxp software//.is it normal for a modem to use 2 numbers as I don't believe this has occurred in my case before.i'm wondering if it has to do with the modem suddenly disconnecting now and then and too,having to reset it everytime I boot.i have att dsl ,no live landline just dead phone cord from the modem to the wall.

I am using an NT box as a router for a small network, I have NT 4, SP5, IE5, IIS 4, & RRAS installed on the server.
I am running NT 4 on the other box.
Everything works like a top except I can not ping the router IP number from the other boxes on the network.
I can ping the IP number assigned to the NIC on the server, and can ping out to the internet, browsers, chat rooms, & e-mail all work fine. But because I can not ping back to the router IP number I can not enter my pow chat rooms which run on the server. I have had this system working fine once before, but due to a reformat on the server I lost this part and am just overlooking something.

Came home today and computer wouldn't type numbers. Num lock was on but turning off didn't help.

Kid had been playing games today.

Searched online and microsoft support had this recommendation for XP:

Turn off the MouseKeys accessibility feature. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type access.cpl in the Open box, and then click OK.
2. Click the Mouse tab, and then click to clear the Use MouseKeys check box.
3. Click OK.

I followed those instructions, rebooted and now i can type the numbers 5 and 6 but not seven or any other numbers. I do type a domain containing 5 and 6 from time to time and it will be in my cache so maybe that's why i can type these numbers only.

Any advice on how to cure this?

I have some old hardware with an RS232 (9 pin) connection to my notebook. I have downloaded a driver for the Serial to USB converter, and my Vista Enterprise OS seems happy with it. However, the hardware only allows communication with COM ports 1 to 4, and as far as I can judge my USB ports are 8, 9 and 10. Can I renumber these ports to make communication possible, or is there another way of doing this?

Cryptowall is still the most prevalent of all ransomware, accounting for a 44% share. Cerber, Locky, Teslacrypt and TorrentLocker all hold significant market share.

When it comes to banking trojans, Dorkbot still holds the lead with an infection rate of 31% which makes it the sixth most prevalent malware. Dorkbot is followed by Zeus with 27%, and Tinba, with 16%.

As far as mobile malware, Hummingbird leads the pack with an astonishing 72% infection rate.

?The first half of 2016 demonstrates the nature of today?s cyber-threat landscape,? Check Point noted. ?Many old malware threats remain prominent, while at the same time, newcomers arrive and take the world by storm. On top of that, malware demonstrates a long-tail distribution with a small number of families responsible for a major part of the attacks, while thousands of other malware families are rarely seen.

I am going to skip the story behind this deal and ask how to get through to Windows and explain my delima. I tried to activate XP PRO after a complete transfer from one disk to an oem disk with XP Home. I was told that my numbers where bad after trying to activate, and that was it. I was not transferred or given a chance to talk to a real person, just contact vendor to whom sold me the disc. I had never had a problem in the past using this product. I have had the disc for over a year now with no problems. It has been installed several different times on several different computers. I had bought the disc along with the sp2 update install disc. It was selling as Windows XP PRO with SP2, Anyway, I do not expect help in a matter concerning bootleg products, but would just like to know a number I can use to get hold of Windows support personal and find out what the deal is. I can understand to many installs, but with that you can at least try and get new numbers and or talk to someone.

A:[SOLVED] bad numbers

Donk here again, It sounds as though I may be screwed. I Googled activation and found a site that has explained what the deal might just be. I new the disc had unlimited installs which meant an OEM install disc. Like I said, all had been good for a little over a year maybe two not sure, but they have now put into place a program that limits OEM install disc's. I just happen to have been sold said product. I had also noticed that after trying to return to said site it no longer offers my product, or any product dealing XP, Office, or Vista. I guess when you buy a product for a price that seems to good to be true well... it is. Buyer beware. It's called greed, I wanted something for nothing, and I got nothing.

I'm currently having a problem regarding random number generating, as I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Anyway, my problem is that I am generating random numbers from 1 to 55, however, the probability of each number being chosen is already given. I know that if you use randbetween function, that the probability of all numbers being picked out is equal (in this case, each number has 1/55 chance of being picked). My problem is that I am already assigned some probability for each number to occur (like 5% for 1, 7% for 2, 25% for 3, 2% for 4, and so on...), and the random number generation should be based on that list of probabilities given to me.

I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to accomplish. You can't convert a phrase like "Hello World" to a numeric value or you will get a "Type Mismatch" error.

You can only convert a text string to a number if the text string is comprised of digits.

For example....Let's say you have a textbox on a form and you enter a number into it. Even though what you entered into the textbox looks numerical is will still be a text string because texboxes hold text not numbers. If you debug your code and check the value of the textobx you will see that the number has double quote marks around it because it is text. You can convert a text string such as "1234" into a number 1234 by using any of the following commands. Just replace what is inside the parentheses to your variable or value to convert .

CInt (converts to Integer)

CDbl (converts to double)

CSng (converts to single)

CLng (converts to long)
