    I added 1GB of RAM (to the existing 1GB), and the BIOS only sees 1GB. I have tried swapping slots, and running only the new DIMM. The computer does see the new DIMM, but only if it's the only one installed. What's going on?

    I have the same problem...just added a 2nd 1 Gbyte PC4200...system only recognizes 1 memory SIMM, regardless of which slot or which chip (new or old)...speed of both chips are the same!

    does your computer tell you how much memory it thinks it has..and are the new memory sticks the right speed i presume you know how to check how much memory is installed ;-)

If you do not get the right memory for your computer it will not work. the memory you need is listed in the table below. And pay attention to the max amount of ram. Your system can only hold 2 gig and it comes with one gig installed

Component Attributes Memory Installed 1 GB Maximum allowed 2 GB (2 x 1 GB) Speed supported PC2-4200 MB/sec Type 240 pin, DDR2 SDRAM

Video wont show


This would be caused by several things.
1) bad power supply causing the computer not to start
2) bad video card
3) bad monitor (does the monitor light come on?)
4) other component bad--disconnect them all except the CPU, memory, and video card and see if you get an image.

INSTALLED NEW RAM UPGRADE TO BOOST FROM 1G TO 2G COMPUTER DOES NOT RECOGNIZE NEW RAM STILL SHOWS 1G.


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.

Bsod when adding 1gb of ram to my compaq 2200 laptop


jayson30

In regards to the memory issue the problem is that your notebook only support 1gb of memory so you will have to split it between 2 512 sticks as that is the max the computer can handle. This is why the system blue screens with the 1bg stick.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Mixing Memory


You can't install two RAMs with different MHz on a single motherboard. Sometimes it works but, usually one of the RAM gets busted. This is based on my experience though.
