Can't Intsall Memory

I removed my 2 DIMMs in order to see what they were to check if I could upgrade; now I can't get them back in. I open the tabs and push the memory in, but it never slides down. At first I realized that I had rather stupidly been trying to put it in the wrong way. I now have the notches matching up, but it gets no further. What am I not doing?

Installing hardware in your PC can be tricky if you want to do it your self. Make sure that the memory is almost perfectly align before you push them in, it will take a reasonably amount of force don't over do it if they do not go in try aligning them again it takes patience. The tabs are to help them go all the way down and to keep them on place. Good luck!

Push in the DIMM from the ends not the middle. If it won't move, try pushing the tabs in a little as you are applying pressure to the DIMM. Sometimes it's easier to do one side at a time.

Hi. My Dell Inspiron 1525 is not working. The message is try to reseat the memory. What should I do?


If you've added/removed/upgraded the memory recently, the answer would be to open the system up and remove the memory dimms, then pop them back into the original slots they were in. It could be that one of the memory dimms aren't correctly seated in the slot.
If you haven't had the system upgraded recently and you don't want to open the system up the only answer is to take it in to the service center and have the memory dimm/s reseated.
Worst-case scenario is that the memory dimm in question is faulty and needs replacement. This isn't very likely, but definitely possible.
Good luck.

Hp touchsmart 600 memory upgrade. We have ordered (2) 4 gb memory upgrades for this machine. As far as we can tell the machine only has two slots for memory upgrades and the most recent items sent were (2)...


Maximum RAM supported by this system is 2x4GB PC3-10600 200 pin, DDR3 SO-DIMMs modules.

2x2GB is standard factory RAM. Call back the seller and get a replacement(2x4GB).

I have compaq presario 5000 series...and iwant upgrade my ram ...i have 128+128 sd ram so how much i upgrade my ram...can i upgrade 512+512 sd ram OR 256+256 sd ram...thank you


the RAM upgrade will depend on ur motherboard capacity and specification.
u need to check ur MB manual
if ur MB can have only SD RAM then only SD RAM upgrade is possible...DDR will not work....
so be careful while buying ur RAM

intelD845GLLy MB...the following details are from the intel website

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845glly/sb/CS-012825.htm

System Memory Features
The D845GLLY board provide the following memory features:
  • Two DIMM sockets supporting 3.3 V (only) 168-pin 133 MHz Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only
  • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only
  • Suspend to RAM
Caution Do not use ECC DIMMs with the Desktop Board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the Desktop Board.
Integrator's Notes:
  • Registered DIMMs are not supported on the Desktop Board.
  • This Desktop Board has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated on this board.




Note To be fully compliant with all applicable PCI33 SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance.
hope this helps

I need upgrade my memory and need manural to learn how


Hi there.
Your computer will support 2x1GB (2GB max) DDR2 SDRAM.
Installing it is surprisingly easy!!!
Remove the power cord from the back of the tower and then take off the side panel so you can see the motherboard, then look for the ram (memory), it looks like this >>>>>>
e4d6c48.jpg

The slots the clip into look like this >>>>>
d3f3d3a.jpeg
You will will have only 2 of these slots and they may differ in colour, all you have to do is push on the cream tabs to release the memory modules and to put it back in just make sure it clips into place.
Please post back if you need anymore help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Upgrading RAM


Yes that should not be a problem as DDR is backward compatible with the slower speeds so the faster RAM, will just slow down to match. These are the only conditions listed so as long as the stick you have doesn't fall under this criteria you should be good.

he D845GLVA board provide the following memory features:
  • 2.5 V (only) 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered single-sided or double-sided DIMMs
  • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
  • DDR266/200 MHz SDRAM DIMMs only
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD)
CAUTION:
Do not use ECC DIMMs with this board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the board.
Integrator's Notes:
  • Registered DIMMs are not supported.
  • Double-sided x16 DIMMs are not supported.
  • If a full-length PCI add-in card is installed in PCI bus connector 1 (the PCI bus connector closest to the processor), remove the add-in card before installing or upgrading memory to avoid interference with the memory retention mechanism.
  • This board has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated (currently validated up to 1.0 GB) on this board.

Note:
To be fully compliant with all applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance.

Enjoy the increase in RAM,
Lee

Dual chanel problem


The beeps your hearing are known as bios beeps. They are telling you there is a problem with your memory. On your board the four dimm slots are split into two groups. A & B. Pg. 19 of your manual. Please read Pg. 21. Remove all your memory & put only two of your 512 Dimms into slot 1 & slot 3. Boot the Pc. Notice any beeps? Check your boot screen to see if bios sees the current memory as matched memory. Shut the Pc down & remove memory, replace with the other 2 Dimms in the same slots. Boot Pc. Again check to see if memory is being seen as matched memory & no beeps. Are you getting the idea here. What we are doing is trying to find which if any dimms may have a problem & which dimms work in which channel. Increase in size to 3 dimms or 1.5Gb in memory till you find a working order with no beeps. If you think 1 or more dimms may be faulty download a free test program called -Memtest86 at this link.
http://www.memtest.org/ Scroll down till you see - ** Memtest86+ V1.70 (01/14/2007) ** all typed in red. Here you can choose what type of bootable file you want. An iso or a zip. You can creat a bootable floppy or a bootable CD.
This should help. If you have trouble & need more information please post back.
