Make sure the RAM you purchased is compatible with your computer. Putting the wrong RAM in is one thing that could cause this problem. You could also try reseating the RAM as if it is not seated properly then the computer does not see it. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

    Beeping usually signifies either a RAM or Video card problem. If you have already checked the RAM then I would say the graphics card has come loose or went bad. Hope this helps.

Satellite PSAGCA-06M01N keeps restarting when i try to upgrade windows

Computer randomly restarts is not something unique happened to you. Sometimes there is a dreadful total crash of the system and sometime it sends different errors, upon restarting nothing happens.

-- First of all disable the auto-restart option from your control panel settings
-- Remove any recently installed maliciously software/add-on or any other application or toolbar.
-- Try to cool down your PC as the overheating due to overuse of computer may result in system freezing and sudden restarting.
-- Update your BIOS.
-- Update the drivers
-- Make it sure the error is not caused by the deficient power supply. You may try to change the power supply.
-- Conduct the registry clean up scan for quick fix of the problem.
-- Remove flashy games and/or untrusted antiviruses/antispywares. Conduct the security scan through the most powerful scanners only.
I would recommend to use a system utility tool like PCFresher to fix windows errors and registry errors. Then try updating hope problem is fixed.

If I upgrade from 2 gig to 4 gig RAM for my ASUS 1201n, will my 32 bit system benefit?

Any 32-Bit Operating System can use at the max of 3 to 3.2 GB of RAM. Hence, when running a 32-Bit Operating System in a computer, then it's advisable to have only 3 GB RAM installed.

    Error message after installing memory ram upgrade.....

    The memory appears to be the right kind.

    Try installing just one 1GB module, and run the diagnostics (press F12 at boot time and select diagnostics).

    Good luck!
