My Kingston memory and Windows 7 compatibility

Hello everyone

I would like to ask if anybody here can tell me if my Kingston DDR2-667 SDRAM memory chips are compatible with Windows 7. I've searched for a Kingston support forum but couldn't find any.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Memory compatibility is more so a motherboard thing then an OS thing. You do not need to worry about it at all.

Hi rfe
I see you are at present running XP so I guess you might be considering upgrading to Windows 7. If that is the case then your best bet is to use the Windows 7 upgrde advisor. Download it from here:
Download details: Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor
This will tell your if you PC setup will run Windows 7.

Okay, I may have been wrong with my assumption on your processor thread. You have fairly recent hardware, so of course it would be compatible. Did you look at what Windows 7's minimum or even recommend hardware requirements were? If so, you'd see you are well above them. Run the advisor that others linked above, and you'll have all the details you'll need.

Have just checked the OP' previous posts and it appears he/she has tried to install Win 7 advisor without success so that does not appear to be an option at the moment! Pershaps if we knew the outcome of that problem which occured in early May we might have a better idea on how to help!
