That is because of window's limitations. Since you only have a 32-bit operating system installed, windows can only physically see a little over 3 GB of memory. The only way you can see that other memory is by installing either XP or Vista 64-bit operating system. Oh and please give this solution a fixya rating; I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Want to upgrade RAM for my Laptop, Lenovo G50-80. Can any one please suggest any Lenovo authorised Laptop service center in Dubai?


I am not aware of any in Dubai. You can upgrade up to 16Gb.
See link for details. It is not complicated to replace the RAM.

Specs say the Lenovo G560 067999U has max memory of 8gb. ordered 2x4gb for the total 8 upgrade and it won't take the 8. it will see 6gb not 8. did anyone else come up with this issue?


Hi, i have same notebook but not the same problem.
Maybe your graphic card taking some of memory or they make mistake in the PC shop.
Download CPU-Z utility http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html (download is on the right side)
Run it and go on Memory tab where you see your total RAM memory then you can go to SPD tab and see what memory exactly is installed in every slot.
Hope it will help you :)

I have formatted my Lenovo 3000 Y400 laptop from xp to windows 7. Now there are missing drivers for 'Base System Device...PCI bus 5, device 6, function 2 and PCI bus 5, device 6, function 3. Please help.


Hi

You can go to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-67131.html. It looks like you forced to upgrade your system to Windows 7 since its only good for XP and Vista in terms of driver. What you cna do is try the vusta driver here and see if it will work for you. Thanks

How much memory can this product of hp take i have cone some test and i think it should be up to 2gb per slots i have try to upgrade it to 4gb and fail i have even try 3gb and fail but it works with 3gb if...


If you are using the XP or Vista OS, if you are going to install more than 3 GB of Memory then it fails to show up on the computer properties.

Once you install the memory then you may check the BIOS for the memory installed in the system, the BIOS shows the exact amount of memory installed in the system.

You system is capable of 4 GB of RAM.

CPU speed dropped after installing RAM


Ok. Fear not. You CPU is running at its native speed, it is the fault of Windows reporting the actual CPU speed. If you stop in the BIOS, the real speed will be reported there, the same if you run Linux.

I upgraded the RAM on Lenovo X200 (745533A) from factory 2GB PC3-8500 to 4GB PC3-8500. Checked the BIOS and recognized the new 4GB memory. The trouble is, after upgrading the RAM, the WIFI stopped working...


Possibly the new sticks are defective. Try this: disable the wireless devices before removing the old memory. Install the new memory and reactivate the wireless devices. Another possibility: mislabeled memory. Can you check the new sticks in another machine? Check online and see if your machine has a BIOS update. If so, you may have to do it. Take all of the precautions when doing this. If youre not comfortable doing a BIOS update, get a service tech involved. Improperly done, youll render your machine inoperable.
