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.

SOURCE: I have installed one 1gb

I'm assuming that your 2nd DIMM is the same type and speed as the 1st one you put in. If you are not sure, check and make sure that it is DDR2, 533MHz, PC4200.

If they are not the same, that is most likely the problem.

If both DIMM's are the same, remove them both and then put one of them back into DDR2 Slot 1. Start your computer and see if the computer recognizes the memory. Remove it and try the other DIMM in the same DDR2 Slot 1.

If both work OK, the problem is on your mainboard.

SOURCE: Trying to upgrade RAM - won't boot after new RAM installed

Install the RAM on memory slot and Switch on your system and go to BIOS settings. There you can check whether your RAM is working properly or not. If it shows no memory installed then the RAM Chip may be damaged.

It should work outright, checked Emachines support page to see if there was an updated bios but sadly there is not. You can try inserting the two 1gb sticks and then clearing the cmos with the jumper on the motherboard. Let me know if that works.

Acer desktp internal ram installation needed


I'm a bit confused....did you have all four of these in the ACER and are trying to put the 2x1GB into the Emachine? And that the 2x1 GB wouldn't work in the Emachine but they did in the ACER and that the 2x512 Acer cards worked in the emachine?

If that is what happened here is my best guess. The ACER MOBO will support 533/667/800 MHZ DDR2 RAM. The Emachine will only support 533 RAM. Iys possible the 2x1GB are either 667 or 800 MHZ and are not compatible with the Emachine but will work in the ACER.

Yes it will work

Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 2GB
Slots: 2

I have an emachines t5082 and tried installing 2GB (2x1GB) they are a 2-pack, DDR2 6400's The board sees 1GB but when I put both in it won't even give me a boot screen or anything, just a black screen. Is...


eMachines recommends DDR2 at 533MHz.
(PC2-4200)

A lot of ram memory manufacturers, state you can use DDR2 at 667MHz. (PC2-5300)

This is a logical statement due to the fact that a lot of motherboard chipsets, (Northbridge chip specifically),
will allow ONE step up in ram memory frequency rate.

You are going Two steps up.
Who told you this would work?
This is erroneous.
(Mean that in a nice sort of way)

PC 6400 is DDR2 at 800MHz.

Your eMachines T5082 motherboard uses an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 motherboard chipset.

This chipset will only support DDR2 at 667MHz at best.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xpress_200

Suggest you send that ram back, and get PC2-5300.

Computer will not boot up


Sounds like the bios is not posting. Your motherboard could be damaged.

Try this though. Recheck that your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the right holes on the back, sometimes having these switched will not let the computer boot. Also, after switching them, unplug the power supply from the computer, and replug it.

Don't buy Emachines. Their power supplies are made to fail within the year. There are plenty of other 200$ PCs to buy.

The good news is, your hardrive data is fine.

What kind of RAM does an E-machines T5082 take, i have a 1gb stick of pc2700, will this be compatible?


Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.

So, to answer your question, your PC2700 memory will not work as that is DDR and you need DDR2.
