Question about Acer PC Desktops

1 Answer

Hi. I have a TravelMate 5620 which has a sticker on it saying 5625WSMi. It had 1Gb memory. I've purchased 2 x 2Gb RAM as found on internet it can handle up to 4Gb. I replaced the 1Gb RAM with one of the new 2Gb and that is great - I can see I now have 2Gb. My question is where do I slot in the other 2Gb RAM? I can't see anywhere to put this - I've opened all 4 sections underneath the laptop - one looks like an HHD, one the CPU?, the one I put the RAM in, and a smaller one that would not fit the RAM chip - I can't see where to put it. Regards, Gareth.

Sometimes, one memory slot can be on the opposite side of the motherboard, under the keyboard. Try removing the keyboard and look under there. If that doesn't help, let me know and I'll look it up in the service manual.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

New memory, the board just beeps


First of all that board supports DDR400 (PC3200) so why did you get PC2100 chips?

Anyway, do a bare minimum test (only MB, CPU, RAM & PSU connected, nothing else). Remove all the RAM and test each one individually. Properly insert one into the first RAM slot and test by booting until the POST RAM test is finished. Shutdown and repeat the test with the same RAM module in slot 2 and keep repeating this for every slot. If successful in every slot, mark that module as working then try the other RAM modules using the same procedure.

  • As soon as you find one that doesn't fully pass the POST test, mark it as faulty.
  • If some pass in one slot but not another, then mark it as faulty.
  • If they all fail to pass on a specific slot, mark that slot as faulty and don't use it (you can use electrical tape to cover the slot for future reference).

Once you've finished the bare minimum test, try 2 RAM modules this time (use only the modules that you found to be working from the above tests). Mix and match the RAM modules & then try 3 together and even 4 (if you found all of them to be working fine).

Finally once you're satisfied you've found the modules that work properly, boot with memtest and test the RAM for any problems. If they all seem to work fine individually, boot them individually and test with memtest to determine which ones are actually faulty.

RAM is faulty or not compatible with your MOtherboard, go through your Mobo manual and check once the purchased RAM at some other machine.

I don't know your specific model, but some of the Emachines had some memory directly on the motherboard. With the 1Gb and 512Mb sticks installed, boot the machine and report how much memory the system sees. Perhaps the onboard memory is causing you to exceed the 2Gb limit.

Please post the memory size you get here with the above sticks.

Thanks,
Dan

You will need to buy a stick of ram from a retailer. Slickdeals.net should give you good prices, I usually pay
If you are going to buy ram, you must have the same type that is currently in your computer. Use the application "CPU-Z" to view the ram type. If it's PC2800, just search for a 1GB stick of PC2800 ram.

Once you have purchased your ram, just pop it into the slot on your motherboard..

I want to upgrade my RAM on my eMachine t3504. I currently have 256 in each of my 2 slots. Can I upgrade one of the slots to 1 GB and leave the 2nd at 256 or do I have to upgrade both slots?


Yes you can upgrade 1 of the slots to 1GB, as long as 1GB stick of memory is the 256MB stick then you can have both, to check the memory you will have pull them out of the slots and have a look on a little sticker on one side of them. You are looking for i.e DDR400/333/266 if the 1GIG memory matches one of the values mentioned above, say it is a DDR400 and the 256 is a DDR400 then they are compatable if not you will have to just leave the 1GIG stick in by it self in DIMM socket 1.

Upgraded RAM, Now CPU Says "No Input Signal. Go To Power Save."


I would check the documentation to ensure you purchase the correct memory. If you purchase the wrong memory type, it could cause issues like these.

1gb memory stick


the obvious are that it's bad or not seated right. The first thing I would try is moving the new stick to a different slot.
