If the computer turns on and boots up, thats a good sign. You must know what you already have in the machine before the install, and what youre installing (Example: you have 256 megs of memory in the machine, youre adding a 512 stick=total should be 768 in Windows as well as BIOS less memory dedicated to video). Make sure that the memory is designed for your machine and matches in frequency what you already have. Best website to help you with this:
www.crucial.com. Use the SCAN MY PC tool to tell you what you have type, and the maximum amount your machine can take. You can even order what you need from them.

Ram not working


Step 1:
A memory slot is a slot in your motherboard where you place your RAM (Random Access Memory) card. In layman's terms, the RAM is the "temporary memory" that the computer utilizes whenever it is turned on. If the computer cannot detect a RAM card installed in one of your memory slots, you have to troubleshoot the problem immediately.
Ensure that the problem is with the RAM slot and not the memory card. Turn off the computer, unplug all devices connected into the ports of your computer and open the computer casing. Refer to the manual of the computer to know the specific steps to follow in opening the computer casing. Remove the memory card from the RAM slot. To do this, unlock the card using both hands. Pull the card away from the slot to remove. Inspect the RAM card for any apparent physical damages. Wipe the card with a clean cloth to remove dust. Also wipe the memory slot in your motherboard. Place the RAM card back into the memory slot. Press the card into the slot until it clicks into place. Close the computer casing, connect the cables back into their respective slots and turn on the computer. Turn on the computer and see if the memory is detected. If the computer does not boot up, the RAM card is not detected by the computer. Assuming that you have two memory cards installed in the computer and the computer boots up, check if the second memory card is detected by the computer. Click "Start," right-click "Computer" and then "Properties." Under "System," check the amount of "Installed Memory (RAM)." If the RAM is not detected, the RAM slot or the RAM card itself may be malfunctioning. Place the RAM card into another memory slot in your motherboard and see if the card is detected. If it is detected, the other memory slot is malfunctioning. Do not install any RAM card into it to avoid further damage. If it is not detected, the RAM card may be malfunctioning. Insert another RAM card into the slot. If the RAM card is detected, the slot is malfunctioning.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

You have to clean up everything inside your system unit, specially the memory card. Is your memory is big enough for your motherboard? Add on a memory card if you still got hang up.

While the system may be emitting a memory error beep code, that obviously is not the only issue here. If there is onboard video and it isn't working, try this:

1: Unplug system
2: Open case
3: Look for the CR2032 flat watch-style battery located on the motherboard, usually around where the front panel connections are
4: Remove this battery using a flathead screwdriver to push on the tiny 'hook' of metal holding it in. DO NOT PRY THE BATTERY OUT.
5: Let system sit for 10 seconds and put the battery back in.
6: Power the system back up

What this does is drain the system's memory completely. If it was perhaps set to use the AGP video card (which isn't installed, hence no video), this setting should be cleared and you should get onboard video.

Failing this, really, your only choice is a new motherboard, or to install an AGP card and see if it works. If you don't feel like hunting down a replacement board, I'd just order a cheap AGP card. If the AGP card works, use it. If not, then your motherboard is really pooched and you'll need a new one anyways.

About the memory beep issue:

You can google memtest86 and download that program. Burn it to a bootable CD and run the memory test; it should tell you if the memory is good or not.

hope that helps!

Won't boot


Thanks for you assistance guys. I neglected to mention that the new video card came with a new memory module that I installed soon after I installed the video card. Unfortunately, the memory module wasn't seated properly and created a short circuit. I removed the memory chip and now my computer works fine.

Gateway sb-4100-b won't recognize new memory


Check the owners manual of your computer for the correct installation of 2 sticks of memory, this can be critical on computers with 2 banks of 2 slots, it will also tell you the maximum ram that will work. If you do not have the manual, go to the manufactures website and then go to the support link, and browse for memory installation. BPCS
