Some PCs especially old ones can't have higher RAM. limit it to its own requirement. It has to do with is own BIOS. Old BIOS can't not have higher RAM. Check also if the RAM you've replaced is not defective, if then, replace it with good ones. good luck.

Usually there is a pattern to the beeps, but more than likely it is a problem with the ram you just installed. Where did you get it from? I checked with crucial.com and that is the right type of ram, but you may have a bad stick.

I need to buy memory for my computer its an emachines desktop model# T3410 512 MB DDR SDRAM and I dont know what to get


in DDR ram there is some models like ddr and ddr2 and another new model is DDR3. First you check what is your ram related to. for that in some pcs bios option system information the details are there. For that at the time of booting before windows logo press the button whatever is showing to enter setup. and check otherwise remove your ram and take that to a computer shop and take a new ram with same model.

And one more thing is you have to check your clock speed of your ram. Remove your ram from pc and check if any information is there on ram

Ram upgrade capability


Simply, yes you can. just open the case and put in the new boards. you can buy higher spec. memory(as long as the pins are the same number)
I.E. ddr-sdram boards will fit and as long as the speed is the same (132.8 Mhz) or higher.
I changed from 133Mhz to 333Mhz and the performance was much improved.
The PC3200 is the important bit, should be the same.
after you change the memory ,try running disc clean up in "start, all programs, accessories, disc clean up" this will also speed things up as well as de-fragmennting your drive(s)

Installed new memory. will not restart, rear


That could be a couple of different issues.
  • Memory may not be seated all the way. It should "snap" into place.
  • Make sure it's right kind of memory. The Dell Dimension 3000 takes 333MHz DDR SDRAM. Look on the chips to see if it says 333 or PC3200 anywhere.
  • The max memory for that machine is 1GB, so my guess is each memory card is probably 512MB max. Larger ones may not work
  • It's possible the memory is bad, replace it as last resort if nothing else fixes it.
Let me know if none of the above works.

    Memory for the D4362


    Your system may have 2 slots for SDRAM and 2 slots for DDR Ram, and must not be mixed, either use only DDR DDR2 or SDRAM. The mobo may only take 2 of the same size sticks e.g 2 x 1GB,or 2 x 256MB, so be carefull as you may waste money on a non recognised peice of ram. If you use a pc3200 and a pc2700 stick it will run at the slower speedof pc2700. Some boards will only allow a certain maximum of ram up to pc3200 speed and then adding any more you will have to run at pc2700 speed. The crucial memory site will be best for advice on memory type allowance and speed.
