Can not upgade memory from 2G to 4G

When I add a second pair of 1G memory to my system and turn it on I get:
Memory Testing: 4194304K ok with 256m shared memory
Warning: Now system is in the safe mode
Please re-setting CPU Frequency in the CMOS setup.

I don't see anything in the CMOS setup for CPU frequency.
I can swap pairs and boot with 2G and it works fine. But as soon as I add the
second pair for 4G I get the beeps and the warning.

I have a:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Dual Core
MotherBoard: Acer EM61SM/EM61M
BIOS: Phoenix MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00- None Ver R01-B1
Memory:Kingston PC2-5300 CL5 240

A little help Please!!!!!!!

I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

Need upgrade Memory for Intel D865GLC/D865PESO


If you goto www.crucial.com and use their memory checker tool you can find out which RAM you need as well as the maximum your motherboard can handle.
Next open your desktop or the section on the base of your laptop where the RAM resides to make sure you have a spare slot and how many slots you have.
It is recommended if installing more than one memory module that you used a matched pair. This is to ensure compatibility. A matched pair is when you buy two of the exact same modules (same spec and manufacturer, model etc.).
Hope this helps,

Hi! How can I increase the RAM on my Aspire T310? Can I do it myself? Thanks.


Yes, you can definitely do this yourself. Upgrading RAM is one thing that repair places make much money; however, it takes a matter of seconds to complete.

Your Acer Aspire T310 has two memory slots on the motherboard. Each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB each for a total of 2GB RAM. You should see a great improvement in performance.

To save on a long tutorial, I have included a video link. The type of RAM you need can be found at the following link. Kingston is another manufacturer you could check into also.

Please remember to unplug all cords from your computer and be in a static free environment before upgrading your memory. Good Luck!

The right memory for your laptop is

256MB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/256, PA3389U-2M25 KTOS534

512MB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/512, PA3412U-1M51, PA3412U-2M51 KTOS535

1GB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/1G, PA3411U-2M1G KTOS536

Using the wrong memory can caused motherboard failure.

Try reinserting the old one memory module.
Be sure that the memory is placed in the right way

Display says no files


Free up some memory for the system to work - the player requires 20 - 30 megs of memory to store info (ie indexes files). You are pushing the limit to the edge, if you want to add more music use the external memory card feature but don't exceed the song and folder limit for your firmware limit.
I have the RD2317 1G internal + 1G external - 500 songs; I thought to add a 2G but why; it would hit the song limit of 520.
Warning record feature does not work on cards over 512M consistently - crashes the player - most likely power consumption issue with external card.
