I have HP a320n PC. Max ram is 2gb I currently have 448mb of ram when I add two 1gb sticks the PC starts to reboot itself repeatedly, and starts to say there a problem and do I want to start in safe mode...


If you have 448MB of RAM, you started with 512MB of RAM, and the computer has "stolen" 64MB of RAM to use to interface with the video-card.

What happens when you remove the 512MB stick(s), and install just ONE 1Gbyte stick?
Does your computer work correctly, and show as 960Mbyte of available RAM?

It's possible that one of the RAM sticks is "bad". Test them in your computer, one at a time, rathre than both at the same time, to "isolate" the good/bad sticks.

Hp xg836 updated memory and system does not turn on, entered setup and shows the new 256 memory in bank one and two total 512.. system does not want to start. When i remove one bank and install the...


probably wrong buss speed or memory configuration. may need to have HP specific RAM. the older machines can be rather picky about 'proprietary' Ram configuration. have an older Compaq laptop that accepts (it fits in the slot), from a Dell laptop, but doesn't like it!
Boot-up shows it as extra Ram, but shut down gives me weird vertical colored bars and i have to shut down manually. you may want go online, if you can, and order HP upgrade Ram for your desktop. perhaps you should replace your system with a newer desktop! sounds rather old to me! no offense- we make do with what we have! my first computer was a commodore vic20- 1981! then a c64- much better for the time-1982- then a c126- 1984. then Dos 1.0, Dos 2.0 Dos 3.0 Dos 6.6 windows 96, etc. even had Pong, Atari, NES (love dragon warrior 4) now p4 toshiba satellite-keyboard sucks!!. laptop. my wife has a desktop 3.2 G CPU 2G Ram .at least i'm portable!
So, consider an upgrade. check E-bay, or Craigslist.com.
what OS are you running? Win98? 2000? ME?

Wheres the ram?


RAM modules must be installed in special locations on the motherboard called Sockets. These memory sockets are what hold the RAM module in place and can range from 1 to 16 or more. Banks consist of a group of 1 or more sockets. A system can have 1 or more of these banks of sockets. If a system has more than 1 socket in a bank, a Kit must be purchased for that bank. A kit is simply more than one, usually 2 or 4, like RAM modules. All sockets in a bank must be filled. Typically you will see 2x512MB or 2x256MB signifying you get 2 units of 512MB RAM modules or 2 units of 256MB RAM modules, respectively.
The Toshiba Satellite A40-S270 has 2 bank(s) which have 1 socket(s) in each bank for a total of 2 memory socket(s). This means the Satellite A40-S270 can support up to 2 individual RAM modules.
Below is a visual representation of the memory bank(s) and socket(s) configuration for the Toshiba Satellite A40-S270.
socket_1.gifsocket_1.gif This graphical representation above details what the memory configuration would look like with the maximum memory installed and does not necessarily model your system memory configuration. This graphical representation is not drawn to scale and should only be used as a general reference. Please consult your system’s user manual for your actual memory configuration.

It's a hardware fault, you will normally notice if you push on the screen at the top of the line it will disappear, unfortunately you will have to replace the screen.
