My PC won't work with 3Gb of RAM

If I try to upgrade my memory from 2.5Gb to 3Gb, my PC will not work at all, despite the fact that I am using PC2100 memory, and the memory is recognised by BIOS. I have tested my 1Gb memory modules, and they are good. Any suggestions as to what the problem is?

Can an old HP Workstation xw8000 Computer that is currently using 512 RAM (PC2100 registered 184 PIN ECC DDR SDRAM DIMMs) be upgrade using 4GB Kit (2 X 2GB) PC2100 Registered 266MHz 184 pin DDR SDRA


According to a couple of people I have conferred with, that RAM should work.
Take a stick of the old ram out and make sure the the cut out, in the new RAM, is in the exact place as the old sticks. It cannot be off by a micron, or it will not fit.

2135us will not recognize memory upgrade


The reason it won't work with PC2700 ram is because it isn't supposed to. PC2100 is the fastest ram it can use.

I m trying to upgrade my HP compaq nc6320 RAM MEMORY from 1GB to 4GB, Do i need BIOS upgrade if yes from were i can find the drivers and how can i do it? thanx i am gone wait for respond......


Hi,

As far as I know, the machine supports 4GB of ram, so you purchase the ram modules from a pc parts dealer and install them inside the machine, removing the existing ram, there are 2 slots, so you need 2, 2GB cards.

You do not require any drivers or bios update.

Windows will need to be upgraded to 64Bit version if you wish to use the full capacity. as normal windows is limited to 3-3.75GB

Further questions? let me know.

What type of ram can I add to my Compaq EVO 510 CMT and what is the max amount?


DDR SDRAM type Ram i.e. DDR1 with 266mhz speed with DDR266/PC2100 compliance. You can simply ask for DDR SDRAM 266Mhz or you can find online with the similar compliance, DDR266/PC2100 Compliance.

I hope you still have the old one which was installed on the system, if so look at the white sticker, it should be labelled there...

Upgrade RAM in a Latitude D600. one bay seems to fail


The memory bay is a part of the motherboard. Try each stick in each bay to make sure that the problem is the motherboard itself. Sometimes memory is incompatible with a particular laptop. Sometimes there is a maximum allowable memory. The maximum for your PC is 2 GB.

What type of memory do i use with this motherboard


You can mix the memory but there is a down side to this. If you install PC1600 & PC2100 the motherboard will lower the speed of the PC2100 to match the slower PC1600 memory. The SY-P4VDA MB uses, DDR266 PC2100, 184p DIMM, 2.5volt memory up to 3Gb. If you wish to buy memory for your board you can click on the link provided for an idea of prices for PC2100 DDR266;

DDR200 PC1600, 184p DIMM, 2.5v, Sync, CL=2

Changing the ram in my toshiba stellite a45 laptop


I don’t have a diagram for upgrading memory in this particular model, but it’s very easy. You can access both memory slots from the bottom of the laptop if you remove the memory cover. The cover is located in the middle, right beside the fans. All you have to do is remove 2 screws and remove the cover. I believe Satellite P15 memory is expandable to 2GB in both slots (Slot A + Slot B = 2GB) and you can use PC2100 DDR RAM, PC2700 memory should work too (it will run at PC2100 speed).

Check the laptop specifications before you buy new RAM module. I just discovered that different Satellite P15 models use different memory types. For example, according to Toshiba specifications Satellite P15-S409 uses PC2100 DDR memory, but Toshiba Satellite P15-S479 uses PC2700 DDR memory (I think it might be a typo, but not really sure).

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

Wont start up after ram upgrade


Try reseating the memory and if that doesn’t work, install the 512’s one at a time to see if one might be defective. If the laptop still won’t turn on, reinstall original memory and see if laptop powers on.
