The memory compartment is on the bottom of the Aspire 3003, the square cover in the center towards the front edge of the laptop with two fan vents. It should be secured with two small philips screws.

Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe motherboard problem..Ram will only fit in single slots.1&2

Get a second set of dual channel RAM from somewhere and test it in the slots and see if it still gives you the same error code. But most likely it will and you'll need to RMA the motherboard as the RAM slots are most likely BAD.

Good Luck!

Some motherboards are only upgradable to their allotted amount that board may only handle up to 2 gigs of RAM which is a shame. But this is the way it is. That is why I always check the board memory capacity before I buy computer boards or RAM for them. The beeps indicate error on the slots for the RAM that is why you can start up when you remove ram one at a time and replace. So use the allotted amount of RAM for that board specification or get another mother board that can handle more than 2 gigs of RAM. Sorry for the loss. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Make sure it is the correct ram for your computer. If you just added one ram chip then try swapping them and make sure they have a tight fit.

To test the new chip replace the old one with it and turn on your machine. If it doesn't see it then it is either bad or not the correct one.

Let me know how it goes.

How do I install new ram memory on my dell demension 3000 computer

The RAM modules fit into slots on the motherboard and held in place with clips at the ends of the RAM module.
To remove the RAM module, push these clips to down and the RAM will pop up out of the memory slot.
When you insert the new RAM module/s, place the module in the memory slot, it will only fit in one direction, the RAM module have a notch on the edge where if fits into the memory slot.
Press the RAM module firmly into the slot until the clips pop up and locks the RAM module in place then check the clips are firmly in place.
I recommend you install DDR RAM PC3200 in pairs as per the manual.
If you don't have the manual Please click on this link :-

How do I add RAM to Insigia model D400a?

It uses DDR RAM 266 MHz. I can use up to 2 GB. Once you have memory for it, turn off the computer and unplug it. Open the case. Look for the existing RAM. It is fits in a slot. There will be two slots in parallel. You press the tabs at the ends of the existing RAM and it will pop out of the socket. Note how it sat in the slot, in particular the placement of the notches at the bottom. You want to place your new RAM in the same way, so that the notches match the notching in the RAM slot. Press this into place so that the tabs on the end pop back upon the ends of the RAM. You do not have to press extremely hard. Make sure the tabs on the ends fit into the notches at the ends of the RAM. Close the case. Plug it back in and turn on.

Can i use ddr2 ram in my pc inplace od ddr1 i cn purchase pc 07?

Hey there, Check for the slots given on your motherboard, whether all the slots are same; However a motherboard can support only one type of module either DDR1 or DDR2. your motherboard has only DDR1 slots. You cannot upgrade DDR1 to DDR2 cause the Memory Module or notches are different than eachother. Gimme Acknowladgement by rating me. Thanx - Romy Decostza

I have a question on how to add RAM to an Intel D850MV.

According to specs your board can max out at 2GB. So you could fill all slots with 512 Gb sticks, 1GB total in each bank. You should always match RAM in pairs. You should be able to add just 1 stick in second bank as long as the first 2 banks are filled.

What you can physically fit and the space available is not the same thing, Crucial is an excellent site but it might say that you have the capacity to fit x megs but whether you have the empty slots is different (see the last paragraph), and you will not really know untill you open the case and look.

The actual fitting is simple enough if you can reach the slots without dismantling the whole machine!

Supposing you can clearly see and reach the slots, with the machine off, and the power cord removed - yes removed! Gently press on the white clips at either end of the fitted memory it will pop up, lift it out without touching the gold terminals, notice the slot in the bottom edge.
Now, and without altering the orientation, place it back in the slot lining up the slot to the peg in the receiver. Now with a little pressure you can clip the memory module back in the slot and the tags will pop back into the locked position.
Okay you have done it, its as easy as that. So when the new stuff arrives you will know how to fit the new modules.

Your new modules could have twice the value of the old ones, so if your board can handle say 1 GIG of memory in two slots, thats a max of 512 megs in each, you might have 2 x 256 megs fitted and there are no empty slots, so pop out the 2 x 256 and drop in the 2 x 512 making an upgrade of ½ a Gig (in each slot) giving a total of 1 Gig.
The probability is that there are four slots, two of which might be empty, its the combination making up the total that determines how much extra you can fit....
I hope thats clear??
