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!

How can i allocate more memory to video card of acer aspire 5100


You can only do that with onboard video cards. If you have an onboard you can choose how much ram to assign to it in your bios settings. However it is limited and if you already have 128 assigned to it, that's probably about all it's gonna give ya. But hey it never hurts to check Assigning your physical memory to your graphics card will result a shortage of your total system memory and your whole system will slow down a bit.
Video cards meant for better processing the graphical content of your system and free up your system's physical memory.[via]
So, if you buy a new and better video card with more memory you will have a fast system with better performance.

When i try to boot my toshiba a75 laptop i receive a boot last good ... it won't boot i removed memory module i installed 2 yrs ago and it boots ... i purchased new memory module and get same error- it...


Below are the specs to the type of memory that can be installed in the A75...it is very specific and cannot be anything else then what is listed. You have 512 mb built onto the motherboard, with one expansion slot. That slot can only hold up to 1 gb stick if the BIOS has been upgraded. Go to Toshiba support and make sure the BIOS on the machine is up to date so it will accept the larger stick of ram memory and make sure all the specs are right on the stick that you have.

Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*

  • Maximum Memory: 1536MB
  • Slots: 1 (1 bank of 1)
  • Standard Memory: 512, 768, or 1024MB (512MB non-removable)
  • USB Support: 2.x Compliant

    Can't upgrade memory


    According to the user manual for your laptop, it can only support pc-100 memory. If your going to upgrade your memory just make sure you use pc-100 and also the max amount of memory is 256mb in each slot so you would be maxed out at 512MB.

    You can verify the info from this link from Dell:

    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 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).
