I WANT TO INCREASE RAM ON MY COMPUTER

I HAVE RECENTLY BOUGHT A TUIP VISION LINE CT COMPUTER WITH AN INTEL486 2394MHZ CHIP.NO MANUALS.I BELIEVE MEMORY IS DDR (256MB) BUT SYSTEM SEEMS SLOW SO I THOUGHT I WOULD INCREASE THIS BY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.I DO NOT KNOW WHAT MAKE THE MOTHERBOARD OR HOW MUCH MEMORY IT WILL TAKE OR WHAT SPEED NEW MEMORY SHOULD OPERATE AT AND WHAT I SHOULD BUY. I HAVE RUN SET-UP AND NOTICED A FIGURE OF 133/33 MHZ IN WHAT I BELIEVE WAS THE BIOS SET-UP. THE MOTHERBOARD HAS TWO SLOTS FOR DDR RAM AND WHAT APPEARS TO BE TWO MORE FOR SD-RAM?
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
THANK YOU, JOHN.

    No web support found for Tulip Vision computer. 
      A 486 computer is really old and even if you do increase the ram it wil be 133mhz ram. A lot of Ram is now abouve 800mhz. Have you considered  dumping the mother board and use the case and maybe power supply on a more modern  system?

What's your problem?bit ix38 quad gt motherboard with 2 gig of ddr2 ram i want to add a 1 gig stick of more ram that ive bought how do i do this? thanks windows seven


Top view of motherboard, scroll down. (Thought you might also like to read the reviews, and Comments)

Motherboard User Manual,

http://www.theraptorpit.com/forum/index.php?/forum/124-abit-motherboard-tech-support-unofficial/

1) On the motherboard the Blue ram memory slot that is closest to the copper heatsink, is ram memory Slot 1.
Also known as DIMM 1.

Ram memory ALWAYS has to be in this ram memory slot.
The Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.

2) The Blue ram memory slots are Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and Slot 3.
(DIMM 3)
The Black ram memory slots are Slot 2 (DIMM 2), and Slot 4.
(DIMM 4)

To run Dual Channel ram memory, means there are two LIKE ram memory modules ('Stick'), and they are installed in the SAME channel.

This would mean to alike ram memory modules, in both Blue ram memory slots, or both Black ram memory slots.

Since the ram memory modules need to be alike, they are generally purchased from the same manufacturer, and are the same kind.

Running ram memory in a dual channel configuration, is supposed to increase ram memory 'speed', up to 30 percent.

This is Baloney!
May look good on paper, but in actual use in the field it's cr@p.
Actual performance increase is more like 1 to 2 percent.
This has been proven by Tom's Hardware, and many, many motherboards, ram memory, Processors, etc.

So you have 2GB of DDR2 Sdram, huh?
Is it just one 'stick' of ram memory, or are you referring to two 1GB sticks?

If the above holds true install them in Slot 1 and Slot 3.

If not, and it is a 2GB stick of ram memory, be sure it is installed in Slot 1 (DIMM 1)
Install the 1GB stick in Slot 2.

It isn't the same as the 2GB stick.
It is 1GB.
Does NOT go in a dual channel configuration.

(Catching all this? There is NO dual channel ram memory!

It is ram memory that is -> ALIKE, and used in a -> dual channel configuration.
Used in two separate ram memory slots, that support the dual channel configuration.

Sold with the advertising scheme of 'Dual Channel', but really just means the two ram memory modules, (Or four), are -> alike.

1) Same Voltage used
2) Same Ram Timings
3) Same Chip Configuration
4) Same size in amount
5) Same frequency rate ('Speed')

With ram memory in a dual channel configuration, the ram memory modules team up on the task.)

Hi I have a mother board EP-4T2A3 and it supports


Hi,

This EP-4T2A3 is unique, that the can only utilize the slightly more expensive RDRAM memory modules. Furthermore, because of the dual memory controllers in the i850 chip-set, all motherboards based off of this chip-set must also have its RDRAM installed in pairs. You can purchase RAMBUS chips of PC600 to PC800 memory modules. You have 4 RIMM slots, and they must be installed in pairs, or you will get speeds of only a single module. The unfortunate part is that the RDRAM modules are a little more pricey. You can find some samples of these HERE.

Good Luck

Mark

You have to increase the RAM in your computer and then also increase the virtual memory in your computer. This will solve your issue.

Dear Sir/Madam, i am using ASUS F-80Q laptop and the graphics is GMA x4500hd Gfx, it only shared 256mb memory, but i have seen about 1gb memory can this chip share (in fujitsu laptop)... there is no...


A BIOS firmware upgrade may allow the video RAM to be increased from 256Mb of RAM. Check the motherboard manufacturer's WEB site to see if this is possible.

Motherboard memory chips gone bad


It begs the question how you know the memory chips have failed - to you mean the RAM or do you mean something else.
If it is the RAM - these are plug in DDR 266 (PC2100) modules which can be purchased from any good PC retailer and installed yourself (ensure power is disconected for inserting) the board supports a maiximum of 2gb (2*1gb dimms).
if it is not the RAM, then what OS (Operation system) does you laser etching program run on - it may be easier to replace the motherboard with a different type (try to match chipsets yours is a VIA P4M266A see link for more motherboard details

Need manual


Do you have an e-machine t1100? and you don't have the information to its mother board... In order that we can help you we need: Name of Computer, Model Number, MB number and all the deatiled event of what happened. The e-machines have their MB number around the white PCI sockets, some have three and some have four. In between the white PCI sockets is the ID of the MB. If they have changed, you will find it at the right upper corner around the sockets for the RAM socktes. I also must caution you that Mbs are very sensitive devides and any increases of the CPU chip voltages, if the CPU chip temperature is not monitored and controlled, will cause an excessive current to flow which will burnout the CPU chip. Also, if you plan to get to doodle with the RAM memories, they are very sensitive to static electricity and will blow them up. There are two sockets and at times three sockets, but only a maximum of two memories. If there is a third one, it will be because someone added it. See the CPU is not always what is wrong; the RAM memories can also be faulty. I am sorry tht I cannot gve you more information, until I get the information I asked for. Thank you very much for considering our service...

Recently i bought msi motherboard and um um havin aproblem that it is hanging if i use more software,or play games ....it just stucks stilled screen and um just restarting. um havin 2gb ddr2 ram...


Can you give me the specs for the previous unit that you had before the MSI MB? The reason seems that it is because you run out of RAM memory. Or you can check the instruction manual as to the maximum RAM memory and compare with what you have now. Another thing could be that since you increased the frequency you have to increase the frequency of the RAM memory. Again check the instruction manual for the MSI MB and see what is the frequency required by the RAM memory. Let me know, I am here to help you...
Thanking you very much for considering our service...

How can i increase the memory of my dell optilplex sx260, with an intel 845 chip? i only have 8 mb graphic memory


You can't. The video card is integrated and there is no expansion slot available to upgrade it.

You can increase the total RAM on the computer by adding a larger piece or an additional piece, but this will not affect the graphic memory.

you may have a compatible issue with the ram, your board bois may not support that manufavtures brand or coding of the chip set you are running. have some else try some other ram from another manufacture.
