SOURCE: gateway sb-4100-b won't recognize new memory

REmove all the old memory and replace it by a new memory, you should test memory 1 by 1 .

first install the 1 memory in the first slot. then boot the computer using only 512mb. if this successful. shutdown and insert the second memory, then test again.

note: memory should be:

1. DDR SDRAM
2. the two 512 should be the same brand.

How to open and upgrade RAM memory of gateway netbook model LT2704u?


This netbook is really the Acer Aspire One D255. You have to pop off the keyboard, then remove 4 screws that hold the back panel in place, which will allow you to remove that back panel in order to get to the memory.

Here's a video - blurry but it tells the story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KYNTvF0-5M

I want to fit some extra memory to my Acer Aspire 9300. Which door do I open on the bottom of the notebook. thanks.


You can adding RAM to your Acer Laptop by following the below steps.

1 . Unplug your laptop from the AC power source and remove the battery.

2 . By unplugging the power connector you will be safe from shock.

3 . Locate the memory access door for the main memory module. It should be on the back of your computer.

4 . Unscrew the memory access door and remove it.

5 . Remove the RAM module by applying gentle outward pressure to the securing clips on either side of the RAM module until they release.

6 . Rotate the RAM module upward to a 45 degree angle and slide it out of the slot.

7 . Align the new RAM module with the tab in the connector slot.

8 . Slide it firmly into place and gently rotate it downward until it clicks into place.

9 . Replace the memory access door.

10 . Replace the battery and power up the computer. It should recognize the added memory and reconfigure itself for use.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks for using Fixya.

When turning on Sb-4100 I get message "unable to start driver for hpoipm07.exe". What to do?


Hi rbrown454. That file is for your HP printer. Go to hp.com and click on support and drivers and download the latest driver for your printer. While it's downloading go to add/remove programs in Control Panel and uninstall ALL HP software. Do not restart, wait for the software to finish downloading and restart. Then reinstall the software you downloaded from the internet.
In case you have the CD, reinstall the CD but make sure you uninstall ALL HP Software.
I hope this helps. Please do not forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast/free support today. Thank you :D

Gateway e-4100 thermal event


There can also be thermal sensors in your power supply, on your motherboard, and video card. Does your problem happen during gaming/heavy computing, after x amount of time, or totally randomly?

If your case conforms to the later ATX spec or some derivative thereof, don't block the hole in the side of the case.

Just some stuff I've run into, maybe you already know this!

Gateway sb-4100-b won't recognize new memory


Check the owners manual of your computer for the correct installation of 2 sticks of memory, this can be critical on computers with 2 banks of 2 slots, it will also tell you the maximum ram that will work. If you do not have the manual, go to the manufactures website and then go to the support link, and browse for memory installation. BPCS
