Getting my pc to recognize new memcard?

How do I get my system to recognize and accept the maximum supported memory instead of the 128mb for good? I just installed a basic 256mb card and got my system to read it ( for accesories needing that amount of memory) but when it shuts down and fires up, it won't continue, says there is a problem with file "fat32" . Do I need to or would it help to rerun a windows boot program like winXP or upgrade to winVista?

You should go ahead and reinstall windows and convert to NTFS. NTFS is more stable than fat 32. So save all your files and reinstall it. This should cure your problems regarding your windows recognizing the extra memory

IBM T23 wont turn on after adding new RAM


Hi - according to memory suppliers your T23 has the following memory capacity / requirements:

  • IBM ThinkPad T23 maximum RAM capacity: 1GB
  • Your IBM has Two (2) memory slots or sockets
  • Module upgrade PIN count is: 144-PIN
  • The memory speed is: SDRAM 133MHz, PC133
  • The laptop DIMM type for the ThinkPad T23 is: SODIMM, SO-DIMM, Small Outline DIMM
  • Non ECC

If you are meeting these requirements, you may have a defective module.

Also, according to Lenovo's page on the machine:

Memory
The system has 128MB or 256MB of memory standard and can be configured for up to 1GB of addressable memory. Memory options up to 512MB SDRAM SO DIMMs each can be added in the two available slots for memory expansion. The standard 128MB of memory is expandable up to 640MB and the 256MB of memory is expandable up to 768 MB of addressable memory with 64, 128, 256, or 512MB SO DIMMs without removing the 128MB SO DIMM that is standard in one of the internal slots for memory. For customers that need the maximum 1GB to which memory can be expanded, it is necessary to replace the 128MB or 256MB card with a 512MB card plus add another 512MB card in the extra slot. Only 133MHz DIMM memory can be used in this system. The use of 100MHz DIMM memory is not supported in the T23 systems.

This means yo can trouble shoot the 512MB modules individually by installing one of the original 128MB modules and one of the new 512MB modules (for a total system memory of 640MB). If it does not boot, try again with the other 512MB module. This will help you identify a defective module that may be preventing the machine from booting.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I need to know how much ram my motherboard will be able to run without burning up? I have an Emachines t1090 w/ Windows XP, 900MHz Intel Celeron Processor, 128MB SDRAM, CD-ROM 48x Max. CD-Drive, 20GB Hard...


The max for your system is 512MB. You have two memory slots and one has a 128MB chip so if you want 512MB, you need two 256MB chips and throw away the 128MB.
At Newegg, a 256MB chip is $42+ shipping of $1. I'd consider getting a new computer instead.
I don't think memory upgrade will tax your system cooling.

Hi there
Your t1090 will only accept a maximum chip size of 256Mb and so it will not accept the added the 512mb chip as it cannot handle it. 512 is the maximum size of RAM for this machine but unfortunately you cant put it in in one go

Re upgrade, memory, speed etc?


Upgrade the RAM/Memory? Yes to the maximum *********** Bord will support.

Upgrade the Processor for more speed on a 9 year old Mother Board? Probably not worth the trouble.

Upgrade of Ram on Dell 8100


Hi,

There are 2 possibilities here - either the slot is not working or the RAM itself.

First install the working 128MB RAM in both memory slots one after the other and ensure that both the slots are in good shape.

Next, install the other 128MB RAM in one slot and check if this is working good.

Your laptop can support a maximum memory of 512MB. If you looking for an upgrade, please call Dell Support. Even though it's little expensive and shipping takes a week, you can get a free after sales service and peace of mind. Moreover you get proper guidance from the experts.

Adding memory to tx pro mainboard


You do not say what memory you are trying to install.

The ASUS P4S800D motherboard has four memory slots that hold DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot, so the installed maximum is 4GB.

DDR memory is generally available in 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1GB modules. If you already have memory installed, it must be at least 128MB so you cannot add modules to 'bring memory to 128'.

Either you have a different motherboard and posted in the wrong section, your memory calculations are wrong, or you have used older PC-133,PC-100 or PC-66 memory instead of DDR. The last is unlikely as older SDRAM has two notches and won't physically fit into a DDR slot that only has one notch.

Please re-post with the specific motherboard model just to confirm and a list of the memory modules you are trying to use.

Adding Memory to HP Pavilion N5160


The motherboard will only recognize 256 module. If you go to crucial.com and run the memory test, it will tell you the maximum memory the motherboard will support. So buyin a higher memory stick is wasting your money since it will not support it.

New memory not recognised when installed into spare slot


"Put it in and reboot"... be sure the aptop is OFF when you add memory! Otherwise, you can damage BOTH memory and laptop! Once memory is installed there is no "trick" to get it recognized. If it is good and meets the BIOS specs, it will be recognized and registered after a cold boot.

1. Be sure the memory is inserted properly (both clips on the sides are flush with the half-moon tabs between memory and metal clips).

2. Sometimes on a memory slot that has been empty a long time (and gets a bit corroded) it is a good idea to insert the memory, remove it again and reinsert 5 or 6 times (only) to clean the contacts.

3. If number 1 and 2 have been done, and you still have this error, then there is a problem with the memory:

It may be the wrong speed (PC100 instead of PC133, etc)

It may be too LARGE for the BIOS to use (all laptops have maximum memory per slot specs that must be observed, because the laptop cannot see memory that is greater than its specified capacity.

In any case, check the manual or the website for your laptop, to get the specifications for memory type AND capacity per slot, and TOTAL memory if you have two slots -or memory soldered on board).
