I have a Dell 8250 Dimension desktop. What would I need to buy to increase my memory?

I'l be flat out honest here, it is not economically practicable to upgrade the RAM in that system due to the use of RAMBUS RAM.

RAMBUS Modules in any significant size can cost more than a replacement computer that is currently available. There is also the MAX RAM limitation of 2GB for the motherboard.

Best Deal I could find is 2GB (4 x 512s) for $200

You could buy a new Inspiron 570 that will run circles around the 8250 for $300

Instaling 2x1G ram. already have 1G and 512G sticks in place. beeping and no startup. wtf

remove the 512s and try again, try each stick one by one. make sure that your using the correct slots on the motherboard as module slots with differnt colors often mean that the modules in those slots need to be be the same spec, not nessesarly the same manufactur.

What kind of memory module can i add to increase my memory for a hp pavilion a305w. when I am playing games online it says virtual memory low..

Virtual Memory (or Paging File) is controlled on your computer and is actually space on your hard drive. In windows XP, go to START, right click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware Tab, select Settings under Performance. In the Advanced Tab, under Virtual Memory, select Change. Set the Paging File Size to "System Managed". Click Set>OK>OK>OK.

This error should go away now, unless your hard drive is getting full. Check to make sure that you have at least 25% free space on the hard drive where the Paging File is set up.

Did this solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.

Need instructions on how to install Memory module for OptiPlex GX280

ok lay computer down plat. there are two grey buttons on the side.
compress both at same time.
lift and unit should open
you will see one or two green sticks about 3inches in size sitting in a slot call a address bus. on each end on the slot there are one lever to release the ram from its slot. . make sure you have unpluged unit from the wall socket. DO NOT stand on carpet this will release ESD. elictro magnetic discharge. remember which way the ram stick is facing press down on both end levers and remove the stick from its seating.
put new ram in the same way you took the old 1 out . levers will snap back up into place when you have it seated correctly.
close unit and boot unit. if a blur screen appears shut down and reopen unit repeat procedures by switching the rams around. if problem persist your ram is not compatible and you may have to get a two 512s or so on. i hope this was helpful.

HP a305w Won't Boot Up With New Ram

That should support the two 512s you installed. Try each stick one at a time to verify you don't have a bad stick.

Emachine 5026 memory

So then are you trying to put in two more 512s for a total of 2 gig or are you putting in two 1 gigs for a total of 3 gigs? One other thing to make sure of: all the ram should be the same type (SDRAM, DRAM, DDR SDRAM, etc and have the same speed (800 mhz, etc). check this and if they do not match, that may be your problem. Let me know what the size of each individual stick of ram that you are putting in.
