    Thanks gotgeek2, I was wondering if it was a dual channel or single channel. the memory IS matching as it was packed together in a kit. I guess I'll need to send them back and order a single stick of 2GB.

Your system comes stock with one stick of DDR2 (512 MB), which means that it is _ not_ dual channel DDR2 memory as dual channel DDR2 must be installed in matched pairs. Try to exchange the new memory for 2G of some single channel DDR2.

    You may want to go to crucial.com and get a free scan of your computer to see exactly what kind and how much memory can be used on your system. The maximum amount of memory for your machine is 2G. If you have 2 memory slots, that tells me that max. amount of memory for each slot is 1G. So it's probably better to buy 2 sticks of 1G DDR2 single channel 533 MHz PC2-4200 instead of one 2G stick. It's usually better to have 2 sticks anyway, if one stick of 2G goes bad, you are dead in the water, as compared to 2 sticks, just remove the bad one and still have something left to keep the computer running until a replacement can be made.



    Also, download memtest 86 and/or prime 95 to test your new memory.

Can I add more RAM to my Averatec All-In=One A2?


Hey Nella Coffey

Unfortunately, more RAM cannot be installed due the limit of Slots available. However, you may be able to upgrade the current RAM modules and replace them. It appears it has 2048mb (2GB) of RAM which is possible split into two 1GB sticks. You "may" be able to upgrade to 4GB (split into two 2GB sticks). This is the current set up for the computer: 2048MB (4096MB max) SDRAM ' Memory Slots available for Upgrade: 0 ' Maximum RAM per available slot: 2048MB


Good Luck

I want to upgrade my computer specs... hope you can help me.. CPU: intel core2 duo E4600 2.4Ghz/800Mhz/2mb L2 cache/65MOnm MOBO: elite 945GCT -M2/1333 (v1.0), 1945GC/C2D/1333MHZ/DDR2 667/PCI-E memory:...


If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows XP, you probably need more RAM.
If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you DEFINITELY need more RAM.

Some motherboards support "dual-channel" mode, when you have 2 or 4 _IDENTICAL_ sticks of RAM. What happens is that each byte written to the RAM is "split" into 2 halves; one half is written to the 'A' stick of RAM, while, simultaneously, the other half is written to the 'B' stick of RAM. Obviously, this takes 4 "cycles" of the RAM, rather than taking 8 "cycles", if there was only one stick of RAM. So, your RAM seems to run at "double-speed".

So, when you buy more RAM, either try very hard to "match" your current 1GB stick of RAM, or purchase a "2GB dual-channel kit", or two "2GB dual-channel kits", to upgrade to 2GB (or 4GB) of RAM.

What is better? to put four different rams or one single ram of 4gb in p4p800 vm asus motherboard


I would suggest going with a single piece or 2 identical pieces of RAM for expandability purposes. If you want to upgrade later, you will have the option to add more RAM. From a cost standpoint, you might be better off buying 2x 2GB sticks as a single 4GB stick of RAM might well exceed the cost of 2x 2GB sticks.

Can I do a memory upgrade on Sony VGC -LS 37E?


the specs for your computer, it states that it is equipped with 2gb of memory 2x1gb and max at 2gb, so I doubt that any higher memory upgrade installed would work, or else it would cause your system to crash or even damage it.

Hi regarding my Archos 10 netbook with Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz processor, Intel 950 GMA integrated 945GSE chipset and 1GB DDR2 apparently it is possible to upgrade to 2GB with this chipset in most cases....


Actually that limit was only in XP Starter Edition. Since you have Home you're in the clear. BTW it's better to add 2 new identical sticks, this way you won't get instability with the dual channel memory active and 2 different memory sticks.

2G Memory Upgrade


I had similar problem with CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

If this is your RAM:
Corsair 1024MB Value Select PC2-4200 (533MHz) DDR2 RAM, 128Mx64non-ECC, 240-pin DIMM, Unbuffered, CL4, Lifetime warranty (VS1GB533D2) Then it is high density. You need low density to work, look for one ending with an 8, not 64.
