Can I install one (1-gig) memory stick instead of 2 match pairs (only have one) this is to replace two 256 sticks?will it preform at 1 - gig memory


Yes.

The Maximum Total Amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
(2048MB)
The Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.
(1024MB)

Ram should be installed in Slot 1, when using just one stick of ram.
This is the ram slot closest to the Processor.

The Processor reads ram memory that is installed in Slot 1, first.

This is Dell Support, and the main support page for the Dimension 3000 desktop computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3000/en/SM/index.htm

In the list left-click on - Technical Overview

Now click on - System Board Components

Number 1 is Slot 1.

Note*
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate computer hardware components inside a computer.

Work on a table.
After you have opened the computer case, and BEFORE you remove that ram module from it's anti-static protective bag, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case. (Power unplugged from computer)

This will relieve your body of static.
Ignore the above if you are already aware.

ECS GF 8200A does not support more than 3 gig ddr2 memory


Is the mainboard capable of supporting more than 3 GB?

If it is then maybe you have the wrong kind of memory, or the slot is bad.

Take all your memory out and just try with the new stick in one of the good slots. If it works then we know the memory is OK so then try it in the "bad" slot.

214 - DIMM Configration Warning . Rearrange the DIMMs so that each channel has the same amount of memory >>>???


Hi,

this is telling you that the Dimms ( Memory Sticks ) Have to be the same or equivalent.
i.e:- 2 x 256mb. 2 x 512mb. Your system does,nt seem to like 1 stick of 128mb And 1 stick of 256mb. et,c.
each channel has to have the same amount of memory. put the same memory in slots 1 and 2 on the motherboard, or if there are 4 slots. put the same memory modules in slots 1-2 3 and 4.
If this does,nt work, use the same memory in slots 1 and 3. or 2 and 4 respectively.

Wont boot 2 windows xp home when 2 gig memory installed,works with 1 gig,tried both slots with both 1 gig sticks.Screen goes black.


Seems the memory is not comatable with the motherboard. Replace the old memory and visit http://www.crucial.com, they have a scanner tool which will confirm what mem can be installed.

Toshiba l45-7423 laptop has two memory slots. With 512 in each, runs ok. With 2 gig in top slot, 512 in bottom slot, runs ok. with 2 gig in bottom slot, says it has memory errors. this limits me to 2.5 gig...


HI embreelynn,

just want to check, did you left the top slot open when you put the 2gig in the bottom slot, if you do, I suggest you try it with the 512 in the top slot and the 2gig in the bottom, the reason is that some mobo implements "banking" which means that you'll have to fill in the 1 mem slot before the using 2nd, 3rd and so on.

hope this helps, regards.

To Be pricise ...there is no hardware problem.
The problem can be two.

1.Your computer supports max of 1.5 GB RAM.....For this check with other vendors too.

2.You have to update your BIOS.

If you can provide me the motherboard no and details i can clarify more on it
