You need to go to your manual and check if this new RAM is on the qualified venders list. Many motherbaords have problems with RAM and are picky about which you put in it even being the same speed and specs. If you dont have the manual , go to thier website, there is a list threr related to your laptop. also make sure the RAM is seated properly in the slot, that also cn cause an err

I have just bought a PNY flash drive with 32GB of memory. I want to store my iPhoto library into it and then transfer it to my MacBook Air. How do I simply store the pics on the flash drive - not one by...


I would Assume that all your Pictrues are in 1 folder? If they are just copy and paste folder into your 32 Gig Stick And then use Gig stick and Copy Folder out to your Mac air..

Just check to make sure folder size is Under 31 gig's in size..

Hope this helps. BCB...

New pny 4 gig won't work with windows 98. Old 1 gig ones will. Can they be made to work?


Hello,

Windows 98 does not support Fat 32 4gb Partitions. You can try to partition the card into multiple 1gb partition's but would suggest upgrading the system.

Thanks

I have a vgn-b3vp (pcg-5b1m) sony laptop, can i upgrade the memory if it has 512 of none-removable memory and only 1 bank.


Yes, you can use the 1 bank and get higher graded memory, another 512 in the 1 bank would make 1gig, you can probable get as much as 2 gig in the bank to make a total of 2.5 gigs by buying a 2 gig memory stick.

My computer won't recognize my phones memory card!


Well I found that these older card readers will not read the 4g sdhc format. In your case you found a 4 gig card that can be read (your sisters) Bring your's back to the store and get an exchange for the brand your sister has, let them know this. The knowledge for them is good. They most alway accomadate just to keep the customer happy.

Windows says not enough space on pny 8 gig flash drive


Try formatting the drive as NTFS instead of FAT32 (assuming you are using it only on Windows computers). FAT32 doesn't support files over 4GB.

Error message after installing memory ram upgrade.....


The memory appears to be the right kind.

Try installing just one 1GB module, and run the diagnostics (press F12 at boot time and select diagnostics).

Good luck!

PNY memory


Hi

Dell Dimension 5150 supports DDR2 400MHz (PC2-3200) and DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4300) unbuffered SDRAM Memory (DIMM). You may install a total of four DIMMs in capacities of 256MB, 512MB, or 1GB. The maximum memory supported is 4GB.

From your query, I think the obvious question is; What is specification of the PNY DIMM and/or does the PNY DIMM meet the requirements for Dimension 5150?

Check for memory configuration and installation procedures for Dimension 5150 - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150/en/sm/parts1.htm#wp1364711

The Chipset used on Dimension 5150 is Intel 945G Express. I am not aware of specific compatibility issues regarding the Intel 945G and PNY Memory modules. However, there may really be known issues that I am not aware of.

To proceed, ensure that the PNY Memory is compatible with Dimension 5150. If not, install compatible (memory type, speed, capacity) DIMMs.

Let me know if further help is needed.

Mike
