Need to buy memory

What does SOD ONLY mean when buying memory for my Gateway.
I have not been able to find out what the SOD means.

    I have a Gateway with a serial number of 0028056119. I have not been able to find out the model number because it is at a friend's house who I loaned it to. I am going to pick it up Monday. I tried contacting MPC the company that Gateway turned over the service to but to no avail. When I looked it up with the S/N lookup option it gave me Memory: SOD only 256MB 266MHZ DDR as the original configuration but that did not sound right. The serial number was changed to GTW0028056119 under that option. Any suggestions?

    It might stand for SODIMM. What kind of Gateway do you have?

I'm looking at buying an Acer Aspire from Fingerhut. It's already a couple hundred bucks over what I'd pay at Wal-Mart but I need to use this method of purchase because our credit card's...

What this means is that computer manufactures (HP, Gateway, Dell etc) get a kickback (small amount of money) if they preload their computers with trial software. In most cases this will be Microsoft Office, Norton etc. So the software will work for 1 to 2 months before you need to buy a serial key to fully activate the product. So the ad means you can buy the key to activate said software.
Comment back if you need additional details.

What does "internal memory full" mean?


OK, this message means that the internal storage capacity is full. Hence, you will need to download the current photos on your camera and format the card, or you will need to buy a memory card to increase the storage capacity of the camera.

Kind regards

Serious problem

Hi bigciss22. That means that your computer is turning on but NO booting up. Do you hear any beeps? Because depending on the number of beeps can mean either memory or video card. Open the machine and verify that the memory is tightly inserted. If you use the video card on the motherboard (most likely) I suggest you buy a new video card (you have to make sure the interface is either AGP or PCI (i dont think it's PCIe - PCI express). If you dont want to start swaping components, you will have to take it to a repair shop. I hope this helps and please dont forget to rate my answer. Thank you! :D

    Where can i buy a sandisc 4 my gps?and how much is it?

    I take it you mean a memory card for it? Or do you mean the sandisk with the original program? If you need the program then contact the manufacturer. sandisk is a brand name of a memory card but there are different types of sandisk cards and you need to make sure you buy the correct size one if you are wanting to back up your program. I got mine on ebay-price depends on make , location and capacity. I think we need more details as to the purpose you need this for.
