Here is the spec of momory on your MoBo

  • Dual channel memory architecture
  • Four 240-pin DDR2 DIMM sockets
  • Supports PC2 3200 (400 MHz), PC 4200 (533 MHz) and PC2 5300 (667 MHz) DDR2 DIMMs
  • non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
  • Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB*

    Take out one of your memosticks, read on it what it says, the buy exact as the one you have.

    If it is an 3200, and you want to put in 4200, then you have to change the ones you have no. You wont be ables to use the speed of 4200 if you haveng 3200 on the MoBo. Your Mobo will atumatic swich the speed of the 4200 down to 3200, and you may have conflicts.
    Always use the same type of memory!

    Here is some more spec of your momo:

    Best performance is when two identicle ram modules are installed, one for each channel,,unless you are a gamer you probablly will never see the difference. On most boards it is one and three, or two and four. Being tthat you are installing 3 modules, it won't make a difference. It will still be faster with two gigs on one channel and one on the other, than if you just put the one in each channel. you should be good to go by just filling any two slots, peace, Gym

    How can I increase memory of toshiba Satellite A105


    A RAM expansion slot is located on the bottom of the laptop behind a small panel. Remove the panel to get access to the RAM slot/s. It may have two RAM slots, if it has only one the the 1st RAM slot will most likely be located under the keyboard.
    If the laptop has two RAM slots on the bottom of the laptop and the 2nd one is empty then you can add anothe RAM module. Try to get the same make and model as the original to double your RAM..
    If both slots are occupied then you need to replace the existing RAM with larger capacity RAM modules.

    Have 512MB RAM. Was told to max it out because the machine is extremely slow. Has two slots with 256MB. Can I put two 512MB memory modules in those slot to increase 1G or RAM?


    yes, after looking up your laptop on hp's website, I have determined the kind of memory you need; (assuming your computer is the one you put in the question, HP Pavilion ze4805us Notebook PC)

    you need 2x 512 mb, 200-pin, DDR 266 memory

    I looked and found some Corsair (highly respected company in computer memory) memory, for 22.99 for each DIMM (you'll need to buy 2); see link below.

    If you have any more questions, please let me know!

    Hi! How can I increase the RAM on my Aspire T310? Can I do it myself? Thanks.


    Yes, you can definitely do this yourself. Upgrading RAM is one thing that repair places make much money; however, it takes a matter of seconds to complete.

    Your Acer Aspire T310 has two memory slots on the motherboard. Each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB each for a total of 2GB RAM. You should see a great improvement in performance.

    To save on a long tutorial, I have included a video link. The type of RAM you need can be found at the following link. Kingston is another manufacturer you could check into also.

    Please remember to unplug all cords from your computer and be in a static free environment before upgrading your memory. Good Luck!

    How much the memory on compaq v3000z can be increased and what type ddr, ddr2 or ddr3? currently it has 256.


    Compaq Presario V V3000 Specification Memory Type: DDR2 SODIMM 200pin DDR SODIMM:
    DDR, double data rate is a type of SDRAM in which data is sent on both the rising and falling edges of clock cycles in a data burst. It is usually referred to as DDR as opposed to DDR SDRAM.
    SODIMM, small outline dual inline memory module. Smaller and thinner than standard DIMMs, SODIMMs are typically used in laptop computers.
    Memory Speed: PC2-4200, PC2-5300 Chipset: Intel 945GM Chipset :
    A group of chips that together make up a complete computer processing unit, usually on one circuit board (the motherboard). It may include the main central processor, graphics processors, secondary cache memory, and input-output controllers. Memory is one component controlled by the chipset. Standard Memory: 512MB Removable Memory Slot(s): 2 Max. Memory Per System: 2048MB (2GB) Max. Memory Per Slot: 2048MB (2GB) Dual Channel Memory Support: Supported Dual Channel :
    A development in motherboard and chipset design that allows for increased bandwidth transfer when using two or more memory modules in separate transfer channels. These separate channels allow each module access to the memory controller, increasing throughput bandwidth. It is a good idea to use matched pairs of modules to ensure the best compatibility for dual channel operation. Tri-Channel Memory Support: Not Support Tri-Channel :
    A development in motherboard and chipset design that allows for increased bandwidth transfer when using three or more memory modules in separate transfer channels. These separate channels allow each module access to the memory controller, increasing throughput bandwidth. It is a good idea to use matched three modules to ensure the best compatibility for tri-channel operation. Install Memory in Pairs: Not Required Install in Pairs :
    Memory modules must be installed in pairs of matched memory size. This means that if you purchased your computer with 128 MB of memory installed and you want to add another 512 MB of memory, you must remove the two continuity modules and replace them with two 256-MB memory modules.

    How do I add more RAM memory to my aging IBM Lap Top 2722? It currently has 256 MG installed, and I have bought a 1 GB memory module from Kingston. Where and how do I find the existing module and add the 1...


    Step 1: Find the memory type and amount used by the computer
    Step 2: Find out how much memory can be added
    Use the following steps to find out how much memory is currently installed and how much can be added:
    Open My Computer .
    In Microsoft Windows XP, click Start and right-click My Computer .
    In Windows 98 and Me, right-click My Computer .
    Select Properties and then click the General tab if not already selected (see Figure 1).
    Subtract the amount of RAM currently in the computer from the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold. This is the amount of RAM that can be added. For example, in the figure below, the computer has 192 MB of RAM. If the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold is 512 MB, then 320 MB is the amount of RAM that can be added.
    Divide the maximum amount of memory that the computer can hold with the number of memory sockets on the motherboard. Usually, this is the maximum amount for each memory socket. For example, if the computer is capable of holding a maximum of 1024 MB (1G) of memory and the motherboard has four memory sockets, it would be safe to install nothing higher than a 256 MB memory module in each socket.

    Step 3: Remove memory
    Use the following steps to remove a memory or continuity module:
    Turn off the computer.
    Windows 98 or 2000: Click Start , Shut Down , and then Shut Down
    Windows XP: Start and then Turn Off .
    Unplug the AC adapter, if present, and remove the battery.
    From the bottom of the computer, remove the screw holding the RAM cover, and remove the cover.
    Spread the retention clips on each side of the memory expansion board.
    WARNING: To protect a removed memory expansion board, place it in an electrostatic-safe container.
    Remove the board by pulling it away from the connector at a 45-degree angle.
    Step 4: Add a memory module
    Use the following steps to increase the computer's RAM, install a RAM module in the expansion slot on the bottom of the computer.
    CAUTION: The computer's chips are extremely sensitive to static electricity, and can be permanently damaged by it. Handle the RAM module only by its edges. Before installing the memory module, discharge the body's static electricity by touching the metal shielding around the connectors on the rear of the computer.
    Turn off the computer.
    Windows 98 or 2000: Click Start , Shut Down , and then Shut Down
    Windows XP: Start and then Turn Off .
    Unplug the AC adapter, if present, and remove the battery.
    From the bottom of the computer, remove the screw holding the RAM cover, and remove the cover.
    Align the keyed (notched) edge of the board with the keyed area in the expansion slot. Insert the board into the slot at a 45-degree angle until it is seated.
    Push the front edge of the board down until the retention clips snap into place.
    Replace the cover.
    Insert the battery.
    NOTE: Windows 98 only: When increasing the computer's memory to more than 512 MB, the computer will not be able to hibernate unless the size of the utility partition on the hard disk is also increased.
    Step 5: Test the memory
    Turn on the computer. If the computer does not start properly, go to the next section Troubleshooting memory problems .
    The memory test should briefly run when the computer restarts. Restart the computer several times to make sure that the memory works properly.
    If the memory count fails to complete, stops before reaching the total amount of memory, or counts more than once in consecutive restarts, troubleshoot the memory problem or replace the new memory module with another memory module.

    Troubleshooting memory problems

    Try the following items if the computer cannot start or has memory errors (including beeps) when the computer first starts:
    Remove the new memory module and clean the groove in the socket that the module sits in. Use a can of compressed air with a straw-type extender and safety glasses.
    Re-seat the new memory module by repeating Step 2 through 5 of this document.
    Make sure that other cables inside the computer are not partially out of their sockets. Reseat any cables that are dislodged.
    Replace the new memory module with a different one. Make sure that the memory is the right type and compatible size of memory. You can remove and reference from the memory module that originally came installed in the computer.
    still if you face any issues
    please do not hesitate post the issue
    in detail
    i will guide you more in step by step

    Thanks
