Question about Computers & Internet
I added a VDATA Memory Expert DDR400(30 1g X16
s/n608jh (vdbgc1a16) The other number on the stick is MDGVD6G314750B1E09 in the thrid slot. When I try to start up, there is a voice message saying "System failed memory test".
I've tried inserting the card both ways,but neither way works.
NEED TO CLEAN THE LEAD ON THE MEMORY WITH SCHOOL PENCIL#2 ERASER, DO NOT TOUCH LEADS THAT PLUG INTO THE MOTHER BOARD.
MOTHERGOARD CONNECTOR MAY HAVE DUST OR FORIEGN METTERAIL IN THE CONNECTOR, USE CAN OF AIR IF NO TRY PAINT BRUSH,
PUT NEW MEMORY IN FIRST THAN OLD OR
OFFSET THEM ONE NEW ONE AND OLD ONE AND SO ON.

check to make sure you have added the right type of memory. also look at your user manual. it should tell you where and how to place the added sticks. sometimes they have to be added in pairs or have to be in specific slots. also if you dont have the manual it is on the gateway site. you should type in your model and serial number and get all the info you need.
