EMachine T6534 Ram Issue

Ok so i've had 1gb (2 x 512mb) of ram for a while now and i've decided to upgrade it. I went online and did the research and found the ram and bought it. I got two 1gb sticks, I went to install them and my computer would boot up to the windows xp screen and after its done loading the screen went blank. So I took out all of my sticks and just put my new ram in (the 2 x 1gb) and the computer booted. Now the config of the ram goes green(ch1) purple(ch1) green(ch2) purple(ch2) in that order away from the cpu. I can fill up the first three, the two 1gb are in the green channels and one of my two 512mb sticks are in the first purple. My computer will boot perfectly like this. Once I put the last 512mb or any stick (because i've tried it with the 1gb too) the computer will not boot fully. I have a K8NGM2-H motherboard and says something about a north bridge setup not allowing 4gb if you use a 1gb stick in each slot, I did not think this would apply to 3gb when you fill up all of the slots.

If you could help me with this problem it would be appreciated!

Thanks!

    According to the MSI webiste if I put 4x1gb sticks in it will only read up to 3gb.

    "Due to the South Bridge resource deployment, the
    system density will only be detected up to 3+ GB (not full 4GB) when
    each DIMM is installed with an 1GB memory module"

    Any 32 bit OS will only read 3G . but you trying to run in dual channel mode , you need matching memory sticks.that is why I suggested you put four 1G sticks. in dual channel you can run 4- 512 sticks or 4 -1G sticks . if you run 2-1g sticks and 1or 2 -512 sticks you will be running in single channel mode

I have an eMachine desktop/tower 3230. I need bios upgrade for extra Ram ...


Hello visit emachine here:

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/default.aspx

And select your pc model by number.

Remember to select the right model, because flashing the bios with a wrong one will destroy the mainboard.

I have newer heard that a bios upgrade was necessary to upgrade the ram.

Some mainboards do have a limit of 2gb ram, and the bios upgrade does nothing to that.

Try to clean the pc out for dust, and renew the the cooling paste between the cpu and the cooling element.

One of the ram modules could have a defect.
Try to test one module at the time.
If you get the blue screen of death, the problem is elsewhere like power supply, or harddrive.

Good luck

Dnt have enough ram to install internet. how do i update my bios so new ram will work on emachines 400i3.


I did a little research on this model, and sadly it may be time to put it to pasture. It uses Win 98 with a 4GB drive. This tells me it just can't handle today's media rich internet. Let alone finding a BIOS upgrade.

I am using D102GGC2 Desktop board with Intel Pentium D Processor 2.8GHz and using 512MB DDR2 PC-533 RAM. Nw I want to upgrade to 2GB and decided to purchase 2 * 1GB DDR2 PC-667 RAM. Will it be compati


Hello here is the homepage:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Third-Party+Chipset+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+D102GGC2

You can only add 1gb per slot Because the mb does not supports a bigger module.
This ram type does come as 1 gb module.
The 667 mhz and 800 mhz is the Mhz speed for the ram module.
Your mainboard supports this but it will only run the current front side bus speed as the mainboard supports.
This means that the new ram will only run 533/400 mhz as the mb supports.

Hope this was helpfull

I want to increase the memory ram for my HP Pavillion a 335 w , on my research so far I found that the largest memory it takes is the 512, it already has 1 gyga, in it, so I assume it has 2 512, I would...


the maximum amount of RAM for that pc is 1GB so upgrading isn't possible if you wanted to upgrade the speed of the RAM the maximum speed is 333 MHz which is not very fast so i would assume that's what the current RAMs speed is.

MEMORY/RAM problem, system won't acknowledge both slots of memory


You might have on-board VGA card which take 8 Mb (shared) in memory taken from extended memory card.
My suggestion, use exactly similar memory card ( same PC clock, either 400/533/667/etc. If this won't work, try to clean the memory slots with brush.

Upgrading RAM


Incompatible RAM could be the problem. The new RAM may be too fast for your motherboard. Hope this helps.

Since Intel says that this board will support DDR with 200/266/333 MHz speeds only.There should not be problem with your board more so that it works fine.
