Question about Gateway MX7118 Notebook

New SO-DIMM causes my Gateway MX7118 to lock up...

My Gateway MX7118 locks up (pre-Windows) when I insert a new 1GB 200 pin SO-DIMM of PC2700 (it only has 512MB internal). This is the second SO-DIMM I've tried. I assumed the first one was bad after it caused the lock ups, but after the same scenario with a second stick... I'm thinking there's something else. I wanted to try exchanging my new 1GB SO-DIMM for the internal 512... but was unable to get the unit apart. I removed every screw, but when I tried to get it apart... the casing would not separate. I was loose all around the sides and front. but seemed to have something holding it together underneat the keyboard area. Any help would be appreciated...

    No good. I've even tried Live Chat with one of Gateway's "gurus". He told me the RAM was screwed (even though I've tried 2 different SO-DIMMs). He just seemed anxious to get me off the line. I asked him how to acess the INTERNAL SO-DOMM, because I couldn't get the chassis apart. He sent me a link to a site that illustrated how to remove a screw and access the external socket...

Okay
it's not gonna work that way
honestly you cannot just add the dimm and you may not be able to replace it with the one you got either.I WOULD TAKE IT TO A PC REPAIR take your new dimm with you and they will install it for you or at least tell you if it can be done.

A7s333 motherboard with 3 dimm ram slots 2 x 1GB pc2700


That board type does not show on the ASUS web site. I think that your problem may be incompatibility of the RAM with the board specs. Placing faster RAM on the board will not make it go faster.

RAM upgrade is not working


A 200-pin PC-3200 SODIMM should work in your machine but it will clock down to 333MHz. Your computer has 2 slots with a max of 512MB per slot (1GB total system memory). For maximum compatibility you should stick with a low density (16-chip - double-sided) PC2700 DDR-333 SODIMM with a CL of 2.5. Link below to see an example:

SAMSUNG 1GB RAM 400MHZ PC3200


RAM has to be

Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
It has to be the same.


• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
Or
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets
