You can go to the System Utility in the control panel to see the OS installed and total memory, but it doesn't show you how the memory is configured, whether all in one module or spread over two or more memory chips.

The easiest way to see exactly what is in the computer tower without opening the box is a free download called the Belarc Advisor, available from www.belarc.com

It will tell you how many slots your machine has AND what size of memory modules are installed in each, along with alot more information about your machine.

The T3604 has two memory slots. Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot, so the total maximum for this system is 2GB.

Sorry to correct Dipu007, but the machine does not have an inbuilt 512MB. It shipped with a 512MB in one of the slots which must be removed to put in the two 1GB sticks to reach the max of 2GB.

What memory do I need?


Your machine has 4 DIMM slots. They use PC3200 (DDR400) DIMMS (184-pin). The machine comes pre-installed with 2, 256MB DIMMS providing 512MB of RAM. The largest DIMMs available in the DDR PC3200 are 1GB. If you keep what you have, you can add an additional 2GB of RAM, for a total of 2.5GB. If you are running WINXP 32-bit, this should be more than acceptable. You can replace all four DIMMS and get 4GB of RAM, but a 32-bit OS can only access a little of 3GB of RAM. If you want to come close to maxing out under a 32-bit OS, remove one of the installed DIMMS and add 3 1GB DIMMS. These are old memory and may be hard to find and actually cost more than newer memory.

My e-machines will not let me upgread my ddr2 1eb memory


That Machine would take DDR2 PC2-5300 upgrade chips. The max that system could take would be two 1GB sticks for a total of 2GB or 2048MB of memory. Memory is fairly easy to damage with static discharge and is also very easy to not put in all the way. When putting it in, unplug the power from the computer, push and hold the power button for 20-30 seconds to help discharge power from the computer, Line up the pins on the memory and push them into place till the little arms at the sides of the slot pop up and click into place. I'd install one chip at a time, powering the machine up after the first chip to make sure it works, then starting over again. The only time I'd install both chips at the same time would be when installing a memory kit (two or more chips in one package), in which case, install both chips before powering it on.

I recently purchased Two PNY 1Gb ram to upgrade from original 512mb. When I put both 1Gb ram in the slots, the computer will not boot up. When I take one out and put the original 512 back in with the other...


I don't know your specific model, but some of the Emachines had some memory directly on the motherboard. With the 1Gb and 512Mb sticks installed, boot the machine and report how much memory the system sees. Perhaps the onboard memory is causing you to exceed the 2Gb limit.

Please post the memory size you get here with the above sticks.

Thanks,
Dan

I want to add 4GB of DDR3 memory, what further info to I need to know about the memory?


Newegg has a great site to find the correct and most compatible memory for you Here.
To maximize your ram speed, use the same speed and types of ram

For example, if you have a 1GB right now, add three more 1GB than putting in a 2GB and 1GB.
If you have a 4GB ram stick right now, add another 4GB and not 2x2GB. Also make sure the MHz on the ram is the same, (1333, 1600, 2000)

Enjoy upgrading your computer!

How do I add memory to my eMachine T2245. I know that it takes DDR PC2100, but can I use 1GB, or do I need to add memory in pairs?


Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 1GB per slot, so a max of 2GB. Your computer does not support dual channel memory or ECC memory. You also do not have to install it in pairs. This would be ideal for you.

It has lifetime warranty. Pick up 2 of those and max out your memory. You will notice a HUGE increase in performance. Memory upgrades offer the biggest bang for your buck.

Every time I put in new memory in get a beep code error


Although your machine lists up to 2GB of RAM memory, what they don't tell you is that in most cases, you need to have a 64 bit version of Windows installed to utilize the additional memory. Odds are very good that you have 32 bit version of XP installed. Try installing just 1 stick of 1GB and leave the other slot blank and see if the machine will boot.

Can I add 1GB memory chip in 2nd slot with a 512MB chip in 1st?


You can upgrade by inserting a 1GB PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM. I would put the 1MB in the first slot and move the 512MB chip to the second slot.
The 1GB should cost around $40.
