Question about Medion MD 7317 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

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.

When I plug in the Acer monitor, it does not turn on. The LED light (that indicate whether the monitor is on (green) of off(orange)) just blinks. There is also a very faint 'clicking' sound.

in most cases the fault is not the monitor its the computer in some cases its due to dirty ram slots (clean them reinsert ram) in the worst case its your cpu

check your computer with another monitor then confirm its the pc have it looked at

It wouldn?t turn would initially show the computer?s contents, then after half a second, it would simply go black...operation light is turned on (green) as if everything works!

Does your computer has multiple monitor support? Please check the slots. If there are 2 monitor attachment slot on your computer try connecting monitor to other slot.

Hope this helps.

I need to put more memory chips in. where do I do it--the monitor or tower? how do I open the cover?

The memory goes in the tower on the motherboard. Most cases come apart by unscrewing screws on one side of the back. Some have a little lever on the back that, when pushed, releases the side of the case that is opposite the motherboard.
Some cases have a button (large or small) that is recessed into the top and maybe the bottom of the case. When pushed these buttons release the catch inside the case and you can swing it open.
Once open, you will see the memory slots. By pressing the catches on each end of the memory chip, you can release them and lift the chip out. Note the position of the key on the chip socket and the slot in the memory chip when reinstalling memory.
