    I did remove the old chip to put in the new one. There was only 1 slot available. No place to put a second.



    Thank you for the quick response

On HP laptops the memory chips are usually stacked, sitting almost on top of each other...if the memory chip that's in there now is sitting in the first slot you may not be able to see the second slot below it. If that is the case, remove the chip that's in there now and install your two new ones.

Here's an HP Laptop Disassembly guide. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there is a third party HP Repair Service. However, if you want to do it yourself, the part is available on ebay.

Memory not being detected while in Windows


If you are running a 32bit OPERATING SYSTEM it won't recognize but I gig.Only if you install a 64bit OS will it see the 2 gigs of ram.Thats why it shows up in the BIOS and not in your OS.If you do have a 64bit OS already then your OS should read the 2gigs.

Wont boot 2 windows xp home when 2 gig memory installed,works with 1 gig,tried both slots with both 1 gig sticks.Screen goes black.


Seems the memory is not comatable with the motherboard. Replace the old memory and visit http://www.crucial.com, they have a scanner tool which will confirm what mem can be installed.

New ram


Memory type is the major problem with the 741GX chipset. Very touchy. I used Crucial PC3200 High Density memory to start with (2 x 1 gig Memory), system was lagging even though adjusted settings in bios. whenever a USB device was pluged in, the system would stop responding. Switched to low density memory and no problems since (Ultra PC3200 (2 x 1 gig Memory), and the USB device problem is also solved. I am running WinXP with SP2.

2 gig ram stick


Absolutely, 2 Gigs stick of RAM exist. Unfortunately your motherboard's maximum memory supported is 2GB. This site specifies very clearly 1 gig stick max per slot:

Install 2 RAM modules of 1 GB


The other memory may be soldered in. Check your manual and see if it has any information on additional memory. If you only have on expansion slot you may have to buy larger memory chips. like instead of 2 chips 1 gig each you may have to purchase a 2 gig chip. Computer companies usually make the chip installation easy to get to on lap tops.

Lenovo memory problem


crucial wasn't the problem.
the problem was solved by me doing a bios update.
they shipped the unit with the pci configured for 1 gig.
not 1.5,2,3 or 4.
I had to go for broke and pray that the 63af08 update had something in it,they said nothing about a memory upgrade period!
Here are 2 links for the solution. WHEW!

Specify AdRomLdr.exe with the full path name where you extracted this package and click OK. Example: C:\DRIVERS\WIN\FLASH\63af08US\AdRomLdr.exe Follow the instructions on the screen. After the update has been completed, the computer will restart

Memory/Graphic problem


This might have something to do with DVMT or Digital Video Memory Technology. Basically, the amount of video memory is dependent on the amount of memory installed. I'm not very familiar with acer system BIOS but try to look for VIDEO under system BIOS and try to select any fixed video memory if possible. you can also try to disable DVMT.
