Memory upgrade problem

I put in two 2GB ram modules equaling 4GB, but it only registers as 2GB. Why is this and what can I do to get the whole 4GB?

    if you could, will you run this system unit to see if possible because a friend of mine did it and it worked on the same computer? A135-S2266

I did some checking on your model laptop and it says that the maximum supported amount of ram is 2gb (2 x 1gb) and so since the slots are made for 1gb max each then thats all they will see even with bigger 2gb chips installed

What is the maximum memory on a Gateway MX8734 laptop?


Hi Anon
the Gateway MX8734 motherboard has two memory slots each capable of handling a maximum of 2gb of ram.
So, 2gb is the largest single ram module, and 4gb is the largest total amount of ram.
If you are uncertain if your motherboard is capable of handling a 4gb ram upgrade then check with the memory suppliers first.
In practice I have always found that the performance difference between 2gb and 4gb of ram is slight.

You can add 1GB of ram but that's it. Definately not a 2GB Stick or 4GB stick.

I m trying to upgrade my HP compaq nc6320 RAM MEMORY from 1GB to 4GB, Do i need BIOS upgrade if yes from were i can find the drivers and how can i do it? thanx i am gone wait for respond......


Hi,

As far as I know, the machine supports 4GB of ram, so you purchase the ram modules from a pc parts dealer and install them inside the machine, removing the existing ram, there are 2 slots, so you need 2, 2GB cards.

You do not require any drivers or bios update.

Windows will need to be upgraded to 64Bit version if you wish to use the full capacity. as normal windows is limited to 3-3.75GB

Further questions? let me know.

2GB 667MHz DDR2 Non-ECC CL6 SO DIMM

I have a compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc, was wondering how do i go about upgrading the RAM?


I have checked the Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Specification It Originally has 2GB Memory and supports upto 4GB RAM max. If you intend to upgrade the RAM, you can buy additional RAM and put them in you system. Here is the HP Guide to Replace RAM and How to Upgrade RAM Guide
Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX has two RAM slots for DDR-2 (533 or 667) Memory Modules. First you have to check that the RAM slot is available for additional RAM. I believe that it has two modules of 1GB each in both slots. So, you have to get two modules of RAM 2GB each to upgrade to 4GB (or one 2GB RAM module to upgrade to 3GB). Hence, it is recommended that you get 2GB replacement module for each 1GB module you have on you system from local laptop repair/ service center, which would be cost effective as existing 1GB RAM Modules would be useless for you upon upgrade.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

You can upgrade to 2Gb ram. I dont think your notebook will support 4Gb ram. A 2Gb Transcend ram will cost you around 1500 bucks INR

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!
