Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
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'm getting the same error.I used TigerDirect's memory configurator and ordered what was supposed to be compatible RAM and I can't find the CMOS area where I can adjust the CPU frq. Removing the RAM allowed the computer to boot normally....

Have you checked the frequency of the new ram you are using if its not of the same type and of same frequency as of the another one your system wont boot

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
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
i hope this helps --
