What is the max (RAM) memory the Gateway Tabor 3 Coppermine WS440BX Motherboard will thak. Also memory type please.

After doing some research, I found that you had an Intel motherboard and used a website called (Crucial is a brand of memory and have some useful tools on their website) These are the specs that came up. You can view the same information at this web address

It also shows the price of the upgrade! Hope you find what you are looking for!
  • 168-pin DIMM Banking: 3 (3 banks of 1)
  • Chipset: Intel 440BX
  • Error Detection Support: ECC and non-ECC
  • Graphics Support: AGP 2X
  • Max Component Density: 128Mb
  • Max Unbuffered SDR SDRAM: 384MB
  • Module Types Supported: Unbuffered only
  • SDR SDRAM Frequencies: PC66 and PC100
  • Supported DRAM Types: SDR SDRAM only
  • USB Support: 1.x Compliant
Q: Will my system recognize the maximum upgrade?
A: Possibly How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found at
Q: What memory goes into my computer, and will a faster speed be backward-compatible?
A: SDRAM memory with support for SDRAM, PC133 speeds. Because SDR memory is backward-compatible, you can safely upgrade your system with any of the guaranteed-compatible SDR speeds listed below.

Q: How much memory can my computer handle?
A: 384MB.
Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.
Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?
A: No. No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance.
Q: Does my computer support dual-channel memory?
A: No. Your system does not support dual channel.

Q: Does my computer support ECC memory?
A: No. Your system does not support ECC. Because ECC and non-ECC modules should not be mixed within a system, install the same type of modules that are already in your system.

Upgraded RAM on Acer T135 with 1 GB module. Computer will not turn on, just beeps. All connections are fine. What do I need to do to get computer to recognize the RAM

You either installed the wrong kind, the wrong brand, or to much memory.

So if you did one of these, there is nothing you can do to make it work.

First you should remove it. If you need more help, you need to post
your serial #, because this is the only way the Acer website will allow someone to look at the system spec's of the machine.

If you post back, also post the exact memory you installed,it will look like this,

Example- Crucial-2g-240pin- ddr3 1333(pc3 10600)

How to install added memory on dell 2400--snp j0203c/1g

Well first off you need to make sure that the memory speeds are compatible with your motherboard... to do that compare the specs on the package for your memory with the stats for your motherboard found on the manufacturers website. If they are compatible, power down your pc... unpolug the power cable as an extra precaution to make sure no power surges are possible... as long as you have to memory slots, you should be able to just remove the present memory sticks and insert the new ones. It's pretty hard to put them in the wrong way as the slots are designed to be inserted only one way. make sure the clamps on either side are locked in once u press them in... don't force them in but make sure they are snuggly inserted. If you have a static strip or bracelet, use those if not... just make sure not to touch anything metal on the memory sticks to avoid any chance of static discharge.. when holding the memory sticks try to touch the back of your hand to either another person or something well grounded to release any static you may have built up in your own body. once you have them in, simply plug in your pc and power it up... windows should find em automatically and you are all set!

I need to upgrade the video and Memory on my SX280 Dell lunchbox

According to nVidia the 8500 is a PCI expressX16 card and designed for hight speed DDR2 and GDDR3 memory.

I don't think you'll have any problem adding 2X 1GB memory affecting the power supply but check the tech specs on the card for fit in your case.
Let me know if this helps

Trying to upgrade video graphics card to use 2 monitors


In regards to what video card to get most of your current computers have a PCIE x16 slot for the video card. You may want to check this link. There is a picture of what the card should look like.

So if you have a PCIE x16 slot you should beable to put a Geforce 8 series card in the system fine. However if you are not sure I would call Dell to confirm the specs on the system.

Also you will need to pay attention the power specs on the card that you get. Because it may need more power then the current powersupply in the system has currently to spare. If you under power there system you can damage components. In regards to a computer powersupply there is never a worry on going to high on the wattage. I want to stress this part because I have seen a lot of systems come to me where the user had upgraded a part without taken in minde if they would need more power. The end result is damaging alot of the system.

In regards to the memory size the thing to keep in mind is that if you are running 2 monitors there memory is split between them. So if you have a card with 512 of memory then each monitor will get 256 of the memory. So with that in mind I would go no less than 512. The reason is most of your graphic programs recommend this. Also if you have Vista or are thinking about getting it this is also the recommended video memory for Vista as well.

Hope this answers your questions.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions.

Is tere a way to upgrade an older computer from Acer Windows 98 to Windows XP with speed and more memory?

You can up grade from 98 to xp. As far as more speed & memory that comes from a few more components than just upgrading memory. It matters on the limits of what you already have. A larger hard drive & more memory definitly boost things up but your cpu's limits will determine the actual hardware/software upgrades your system can benifit from. You'll have to get the specs on maximums for your model. If you can tell us what you have now it would help to determine a better answer than guessing.
