Upgrade problems I'm trying to upgrade to 2GB ram. my w3507 says it's upgradeable to 2GB but when I add the new dual channel (2x1GB sticks) the computer wont post. the memory came together in a "kit" If I add 1 stick and a 512Mb the system shows as 1.00 GB Any ideas?

    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.

I bought a 4gb ram upgrade and its still running slow why?


If the upgrade was added to the 2 GB of existing RAM, your computer will run at the slowest speed. That's why some manufacturers recommend replacing existing RAM with the upgraded 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

Wont to upgrade graphic card my p.c has 2gig max ram in it wonts should i upgrade to to preform its best cheers mike


Depends on what kind of hardware you have
-Memory- 2 gb ram is "ok" if you use windows XP but if you have Vista or Windows 7 you should have a minimum of 4gb ram.
-Processor- if you have a Dual core processor you are ok, if you have a p4 or p3 you dont want to waste money on a new graphics card because it will not help you get better games, your processor and memory will slow you down instead.
So my advice is, if you have a OK computer, go ahead with buying a new graphics card if you computer is old and slow, DONT buy a new card! put your money on +2gb ram instead (cheap,and gives you more benefits) or maybe buy an "upgrade package" with new motherboard-memory-processor.

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.

Hp Compaq dx2200 MT RAM Problems


Firstly, you have to know that you can upgrade RAM as Double or Half of your pre-installed RAM. For example, like your pre-installed RAM is 256 MB, you can only upgrade RAM of capacity 128 MB or 512 MB. Secondly, check your previous installed RAM's speed that is shown in Ghz. You can only upgrade RAM to its similar speed, otherwise you get slow performance of PC.

I want to upgrade my lenovo laptop ram memory from 1gb to 2gb by adding one more stick. i currently have ddr2 PC2-5300(333MHz) latency 5 5 5 15 2T RAM my friends advised me that BLUE SCREEN ERROR occurs...


The rule of thumb with RAM is to always buy matching pairs. So instead of buying one new stick of 1gb its a better idea to buy two of the same kind and replace the one that is currently in there.

Before you even think about doing this, head over to lenovo's website and make sure that the computer is compatible with 2gb(from the speed of the ram im assuming that it will, I don't know of many DDR2 computers that cant have 2gb.) you may also be able to get ram that is faster if it is compatible, The website will have all this info.

Can the memory be upgraded (increased) from the basic (factory installed) 512mb on the Sony PCV-W300G?


Hi there.
As far as i know you can upgrade the RAM to 2GB, 2x1GB 184pin PC2100 DDR DIMM Desktop RAM modules is what it can take.


Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Memory Upgrade Attempt Causes Computer Not to Post


Seeing as the message is indicating a problem at one of the timer checkpoints, fatal is probably an accurate description. You are most likely looking at a motherboard replacement scenario. I've seen improperly seated memory modules toast timer circuitry on old boards back in the days when most of the timing circuitry was constructed from discrete components, not entirely IC-based timing solutions, but I have never seen it happen on modern boards.
