Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop

3 Answers

Memory upgrades I was given an IBM NetVista PC Desktop that only has 256MB memory. I want to increase memory but was not given a user guide. How do I know what amount of memory the pc is upgradable to?? What size memory do I purchase? I have to memory modules that I bought for my HP PC and they were not compatible. Can they be used for this IBM NetVista PC? They are 256MB DDR . Thanks for any help offered.

I went and bought new ram for my computer. it's an IBM desktop. type 6792. a pc133 512MB sdram. my computer will not pick it up. how do i get the computer to pick up the ram? it is the right kind of ram?


I checked at http://www.buffalotech.com/products/memory/select/select-dimm/ and according the the memory configurator there your IBM Netvista 6792 takes this type of memory which can be ordered from them PC-133mhz SDRAM DIMM 168 pin, it indicated that your pc has 3 slots for memory and the maximum size you can put in each slot is 512 MB which would give you the maximum memory of 1536 MB. I have had problems in the past when replacing memory in IBM PC's some modules won't work because IBM uses different memory than other Manufacturers. But give Buffalo a try, their memory is guaranteed.

Model # IBM NetVista PC Desktop


when you boot hit pause when it gets to the screen just after the memory screen is finished. hit the pause button... it should say which key(s) to hit to enter setup.
Is there a bios password and you can't get past that ?

I have same problem as ninja9er


hi,

First try Using one at a time, since its not advisable to use memory chips with variable bus speeds i.e (333 & 266).
Since IBM Computer are little complicated i would suggest your to call the customer care or Tech support for assistance in buying a Memory module. In that way you can cross check the memory module you have bought is compatible with the computer.

Kindly give a feed back to Improve my statistics and to see If it was helpful for you...

Thanks and Regards
