Your mothermoard may limit the amount of memory you can install. Even if the chips physically fit into the slots, your hardware may not be able to support it. If you have a 32-bit operating system (and if you don't know, it is very safe to assume that you do, especially on that computer) you will not benefit from over 3GB anyway.
If the amount of RAM that you are "short" is realatively small (usually 256MB or under), it may also be that that RAM is being taken up by your integrated graphics card.
Basically, if it is not recognized, you probably wouldn't notice a performance difference anyway and you should have bought less memory (sorry to tell you this).
If you are a moderate-to-advanced-level computer user, you may be interested in this article about Physical Address Extension (PAE) and enabling it to increase your computer's ability to use 4GB or more of memory.

Latitude d530 has 1 gb memory. I added another Gb. How do I modify setup so that the system recognizes the upgrade?


It should automatically utilize the expanded memory. After installed, upon startup, you should get a notice saying that the memory was recognized.

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

HP ze5470us memory upgrade not fully recognized


Hi there,

I am almost sure that you, by accident of course, switched the memory blocs, so that you have put in one 256MB and one 512MB.

Have a look at the once you have on the table.

Hp 530 notebook cpu upgrade


It's not posible to upgrade to a dual core, the motherboard is a different design. Keep in mind that the processor, motherboard and memory have a matched frequency. If the processor doesn't match the board then it won't recognize it. Since the board does recognize the T2300, it may be that you need to match the memory in order to get it to boot. Match the memory by going to patriotmem.com and entering the model that the T2300 came from, it will tell you the memory frequency. If the memory matches the processor simply will not work with that board.
