Question about Medion MD 7317 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Medion ram upgrade

I upgrade the ram in my Medion PC MT6.
It has 4 slots in two banks, each bank having a green and black slot.
It came with two cards, 256mb each.
I put in 4 cards of 1gb each, and I was very careful to purchase the correct ones.
It works fine, but my Control Panel/System says I have 3.12 G of ram, and my System Information says:

Total Physical Memory 3,199.48 MB
Available Physical Memory 2.46 GB
Total Virtual Memory 2.00 GB
Available Virtual Memory 1.96 GB
Page File Space 6.10 GB
Page File C:pagefile.sys

Surely these readings should be 4GB ram?
Each card snigged in nicely, are perfectly locked by the tabs at each end and I wonder if I should take them out & reseat them? It appears to me that one of them may not be registering??

Some RAM/MEDION guru help/advise me please!

    Thanks, Nobarai for such a prompt and clear response.

    I will probably go for 64 bit OS.

I'm not a guru, but your predicament is pretty simple.
Depending on your OS (XP 32 bit, XP 64 bit, Vista), the OS will be able to recognize a certain amount of RAM. XP 64 Bit will be able to recognize up to 6GB of RAM. Vista, I have no Idea. 32 Bit, what you're seeing right now.

Sorry for wasting a bit of money on that last stick.

How do you access the memory slots on an acer aspire z3731


Memory Sockets or Slots are the place where memory RAM modules are inserted in the motherboard. The Acer Aspire Z3731 has 4 (4 banks of 1) memory expansion slots. A memory bank is a group of memory expansion sockets, a bank must be completely filled with memory modules of the same size and type in order for the system to recognize and address the memory. i.e. :
2 sockets (2 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 2 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.
3 sockets (3 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 3 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.
4 sockets (2 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 4 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.
8 sockets (4 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 8 memory slots. These are divided into 4 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.
12 sockets (3 banks of 4) This indicates that there are 12 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of four memory slots. So you must add memory four pieces at a time (and they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

My Sony VGN A-290 laptop configuration specs state that there are 2 banks with 2 slots for which I am attempting to upgrade to max RAM, but I can only find one bank with one slot. Where would I find the...


1.
Most likely they sit on the same Connector back-to-back. So hat each RAM module faces each other after installation.
2. The second compartment should be checked according to the manual.

I have a question on how to add RAM to an Intel D850MV.


According to specs your board can max out at 2GB. So you could fill all slots with 512 Gb sticks, 1GB total in each bank. You should always match RAM in pairs. You should be able to add just 1 stick in second bank as long as the first 2 banks are filled.

Did you install the RAM correctly?
The RAM needs to be installed in matched pairs in a G5. There ar 2 banks of RAM slots. Ram should be installed from the centre outwards. (i.e bottom slot of the upper bank and top slot of the lower bank). Then move on to the next pair.

Memory banks 1 & 2 are where your computer looks for RAM. If nothing is installed in them then the computer looks no further. You can upgrade RAM by putting 2 more sticks in the unused banks as long as they are compatible to the board and first 2 sticks. It makes no sense to buy faster than the first 2 as the cpu would make them run at the lowest speed of all installed RAM. If you are using an asus board then when you boot up you should be able to press the del key to enter bios setup. Video cards are more to preference. If you have the psu & board capabilities then the sky is the limit. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
