New ram not speedy

I've recently updated the 2-256mb rams to 1-1gb ram chip in the left dimm slot. it just feels slower than when I had 512 in it. is it possible I installed in the wrong slot?
The old chips say 256mb ddr 266 cl2.5
The new one from PNY says 1gb ddr pc3200 400/333/266mhz

Thanks!

Well, the lowest speed of those rams will be effective for all rams. If you install same sized ram on 1st and the 3rd port, it should be run on dual channel mode and will be fastest possible. please try this if you have 4 ports.

Can you put 2 igb memery into the blue connectors and 2 512 gb into the black connectors


Yes, provided;

A) The Maximum Total Amount for the Ram Memory is at least 3GB.

B) The Maximum Amount for each Ram Memory slot is at least 1GB.

C) The first blue connector is ram memory Slot 1. (DIMM 1)

The Processor 'sees' the Ram Memory in Slot 1 first.
If there is a large amount of ram memory, (1GB), and a small amount (512MB), the large amount goes in Slot 1.

ALL ram memory must be the same 'speed', (Frequency Rate), or the slower ram memory 'speed' will be used.
If there is too much of a difference it may not work at all.

Ram memory needs to be 400MHz, or 533MHz, for your computer.
{DDR2 Sdram at 400MHz = PC2-3200
DDR2 Sdram at 533MHz = PC2-4200 (Also known as PC2-4300)

I have a 512 DDR2 (533 FSB) RAM in one of my slot in Intel D102GGC2 Mother board,can i put a 2 GB DDR2 ram in another slot.If yes then What FSB will match and what is the maximum capacity of ram per slot?


This motherboard will support maximum 2 GB of total system memory. so configuration is should be 1GB + 1GB or one 2GB in one slot. If you attempt to install 2GB + 512MB, this is unsupported. but you can try if might the system can read it or not. there is no serious problem for installing memory exceed than maximum system memory...
Memory supported is DDR2 533 Mhz and DDR2 400 MHz...(sometimes on the market DDR2 533 will described as module name PC2-4200 and DDR2 400 as PC2 3200)

Installed a second 256 mb memory card and it won't recognize it. System is still operating on only 256mb of ram instead of 512.


Are the DIMMS identical?
If they are not or one is faulty, it will not recognise the both of them.
Does it work with each RAM either way round?
The must be of the same manufacture and speed.
Hope that helps.

Acer travelmate 2003lc will not boot with new ram


512MB (FT64MSD64V3F)
200 Pin Dimm - SDRAM - 2.5V - DDR - PC2700 (PC-333) - Non-ECC

is the correct type of RAM for your laptop.
Have you tried booting with all combinations.

512 in slot 1 --- Boots
move same dimm to slot 2 (on it's own) and try booting.
boot with 256mb in slot 1 and known to be good 512 in number 2

This laptop should allow up to 2GB RAM. So I don't belive it is an issue with the mother board not seeing the amout of RAM. I think it could either be flaky dimm or your slot 2 is damaged

Reg ram upgradation


Each memory slot on the C555NR can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. There are actually 2 slots, but only one is easily accessible to you. By upgrading both the primary and secondary DIMMs, you could achieve a total of 2GB of memory but you would have to remove the 512mb chip that is already installed and replace it with 1GB (+1GB in the expansion slot as well.)

If you don't plan on taking the computer to a professional to be serviced, you will probably only want to upgrade the memory in the secondary slot located under the memory cover on the underside of the computer. It can handle a 1GB SODIMM.

FYI the memory is:
200 Pin DDR2-533 PC2-4200 SODIMM

Good luck!
