    Did you make sure the ram will work with the motherboard? I had the same problem on one of my computers at one time. Found out the ram would not work with the motherboard. What you have to do it go to gateway website and look up your model. Then once you do that. Find a list of ram that will work with that model.

If its for a server you will defenatly need ECC registered ram, if its not ECC it wont work try this program, it will tell you about your memory. download the program and run it.

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.

Constant beeps


this laptop can take 4G ram http://www.crucial.com/upgrade/Gateway-memory/M-1000+Series/M-1625-upgrades.html

if the memory modules are not from the same brand range, this can often be the issue.

it SHOULD be able to run with just 1 2G module but will run better with 2 1G rather than the single, assuming it's the right type for the machine.

If I'm upgrading pc memory, I remove the old and replace with Crucial or Kingston kits so as not to mix brands and ranges.

I have a hp 750n and i was trying to upgrade the ram with your 512mb pc2100 ram and it just beeps nowougirish63118@yahoo.com


The memory isn't compatible or you don't have the module seated correctly.

Put the old memory back in and browse to www.crucial.com. Run a scan and see what memory your laptop supports. You should be able to purchase the proper memory from their site.

Good Luck,
Mark

Power on ok but no display. ram not detect


First disable the onboard VGA then put in a known good AGP graphics card to see if you can get through the POST if your BIOS i rejects the RAM chips it should give you a short series of beeps this would indicate that the memory is not compatible as a rule of thumb PC2700 speed memory is for a motherboard and processor with a 133Mhz FSB this is quaded to 533MHz. you can usually place faster memory but not slower memory look at the table below for rated Frontside Bus Speeds.

CPU FSB DDR DIMM Type Memory Frequency
---------------------------------------------------------------------
800 MHz PC3200/PC2700*/PC2100 400/333*/266 MHz (min busspeed 200Mhz)
533 MHz PC2700/PC2100 333/266 MHz (min busspeed 133Mhz)
400 MHz PC2100 266 MHz (min busspeed 100Mhz)

P4VXASD-R VIA Apollo P4X266-new 1G DDR gets 3 beeps


Well you said you used 256+128 and thats lower than 1gb. So try sticking in one of the stick and run it, see how it is. Then try the other, if both are working fine by themself then try cleaning your board with a nonscrathing cloth (or q-tip).

Lastly, just double check if your motherboard runs that kingston type, the pc2100.

As for your memory goes, os 2k can run up to 4gb of ram.

Memory upgrade


Hi there.
The best memory for that motherboard is DDR SDRAM, the supported ram speed is 266 MHz • 200 MHz(maximum 2BG, 1BG in each slot)
Kingston or corsair memory running at 266MHz is my recommendation to you. Try not to buy used memory as it may not work!!

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Critical after DDR333 upgrade


cadyshack,
I got your latest version (8.1) motherboard on my screen & ECS shows your board does not support PC2700, only PC2100.
Downloaded your manual to verify this.
Notice you started having problems after upgrading RAM.
Link to your manual:
http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=436&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=7&LanID=9

This motherboard accommodates two 184-pin DDR DIMM
sockets for up to 1GB memory. Supports PC2100/PC1600
unbuffered non-ECC DDR DIMMs.

Constant beeping


I would first check that all the fans are turning when you first power it up. It may have fan speed sensors on them, and one or more fans aren't coming up to speed. I would check the CPU fan(s), as they are usually smaller, and tend to go bad before the other larger ones.

Beep sound


This problem is due to the mix of registered and unregistered DIMMs. 64Mb and 128 Mb DIMM's are unregistered memory technology 256MB is registered memory technology.
A mix of registered and unregistered memory prevents the server from completing startup, and results in an error beep sequence and a blank screen..Use registered memory and it will be fine..
