Check if your new RAM is properly inserted. Also, see if the speed matches the other, original one. You might be mixing speeds that gives you some trouble. Another way is to swap the RAM, place the new one to the slot of the old one. Also, check if your motherboard will allow more memory to be added in your system. You may have reached the maximum memory capacity.

I have AMD Sempron 140 on ASUS M2N68-AM SE2 motherboard, Strontium 1GB PC800 DDR2 RAM. But in system properties, the RAM is showing as 768 MB instead of 1024 MB (WinXP 32 bit). The dealer is saying the RAM...


Yes the dealer is correct that the 256 MB of your RAM is allocated to the video card of this computer since the unit has a built in NVIDIA GeForce 7025 Shared video memory (UMA)that uses 256 MB of your RAM , so if you like to maximize the use of your RAM you need to install a expansion video card.

I have a computer with an intel al440lx motherboard, pentium 2 processor w/mmx, ATI rage 3d graphics card ,creative sound blaster pci sound card, 7GB quantum HDD and 40GB seagate HDD and 1.024 GB SDRAM...


Hi,
This is not a software problem. The problem lies in the motherboard.

The motherboard which you are using is an AL440LX motherboard which supports a maximum of 384MB of RAM. The computer will not recognize any more RAM. In order to use 384MB, you will have to add a 128MB RAM along with the 256MB already present and not any more !!
This is the solution !!

Make sure you have the memory installed correctly. Those beep codes identify it as bad memory. Try the old RAM.
Good luck with this.

Which memory ram for amilo pro v7010


http://www.fujitsu-siemens.ru/Resources/123/2080773523.pdf

Here's a link to the Data Sheet with the specifications to that Laptop in Adobe Reader format.

Looks like your Laptop came with either 256 or 512 MB of DDR SDRAM and it is upgradable to 2 GB of DDR SDRAM.

You can check to see exactly how much RAM your computer came with by going to Control Panel, double-click System and it should tell you how much RAM you currently have in the System Properties box.

The motherboard has 2 slots for RAM, you you could add a second 256 MB or a second 512 MB stick of RAM. Or if you wanted to upgrade to the 2GB of maximum RAM this computer handles, then you can take out the RAM chip(s) that is installed and install two 1G DDR SDRAM.

Sdram capacity


its that 512 mb total capacity for your computer memory?? if so read this:
To find the total amount of RAM that can be added , subtract the amount of RAM currently in the computer from the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold. For example, a computer has 256 MB of RAM. If the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold is 512 MB, then 256 MB is the amount of RAM that can be added. this info from the HP website , to find out more , go to http://www.hp.com/support , enter the model number , and look for more information about your computer specs, hope this helps , please rate & thanks AJ
