I have Compaq nx6310 and i want to upgrade my RAM ... both my 2gb ram modules work but if they are both in my laptop it wont turn on ... before i had 2 x 512mb ram modules and those work well ... even...


Hi there,

This is from the NX6310's documentation:

Intel 945GM Express Chipset supports up to 4096-MB maximum (2048-MB
533- or 667-MHz SODIMM in slots 1 and 2)
Intel 940GML Express Chipset supports up to 2048-MB maximum (1024-MB
533- or 667-MHz SODIMM in slots 1 and 2)

Basically if you have the Intel 940GML Express Chipset, then the machine only supports 2gb of ram as a maximum, to confirm this, go to Start > right click computer/mycomputer > go to manage > device manager > system devices.
Under there you'll see what chipset you have, if it's the Intel 940GML Express Chipset, you're out of luck, if it's the Intel 945GM, you may just have the wrong speed ram, make sure they are the same speed and compare them to the spec above.

Thanks,

Liam

How to install memory stixs


In an Acer Extenza 5420 series of Notebook PC?

Well you came to the right place

Here have a seat, and let me show you;

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Here is a Bottom view of your laptop,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Extensa-5420-Case-Bottom-15-4-Black-Cover-Speakers-Original-Genuine-Laptop-/170983023419?pt=US_Computer_Cases&hash=item27cf61e33b

Bottom left corner shows the Battery has been removed.
Remove the large panel above it,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Extensa-5420-5520-Hard-Drive-RAM-Memory-Bottom-Cover-Door-60-4T305-002-/190741766831?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c691862af

Looks to be 6 Philips head screws to remove.
The panel lifts up on the LEFT side. There are TABS extruded from this large panel, which go into the Base Enclosure, (Bottom Cover), on the Right side.

From the Specifications on Acer's Support website,

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/0000/Acer/Extensa5420/Extensa5420sp2.shtml

,it states;

System Memory: -> Up to 2GB of DDR2 667MHz memory; upgradeable to 4GB using two SO-DIMM ram memory modules.
(Dual-channel support)

From what I can see, looking at the motherboard by itself; there are TWO ram memory slots,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Extensa-5120-5420-7120-7420-TravelMate-5220-AMD-Motherboard-MB-TKP01-002-/350455821339?pt=Motherboards&hash=item5198cb741b

Towards the Top you see the White processor socket. Upper corners are cut off, and there is a single screw in the top/middle.
Right above it are two white Ram Memory slots.

EACH ram memory slot will support (Use) 2GB of DDR2 at 667MHz.

2GB = Amount
DDR2 stands for DDR2 Sdram, and is it SO-DIMM to fit in a laptop.
667MHz stands for 667MegaHertz.
The frequency rate ('Speed') that the Ram Memory operates at.

The TOTAL amount of ram memory for the laptop is 4GB.
That means you can use two modules, ('Sticks') of DDR2 Sdram at 667MHz.
Or also stated as PC2-5300.

Just make SURE it is SO-DIMM, or you will be getting the larger DIMM ram memory used in a desktop computer.
An example of SO-DIMM,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1GB_DDR2_SO-DIMM.png

Note the Side Notch on Each side.
The half-moon cutout.
Note the Locating Notch on the Bottom.

Also;
Everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the Bottom; is the BODY.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.
Handle the Ram Memory module by the Body.
Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.

[WORK on a table. {Or workbench} DO NOT work on a bed, couch, or directly on a carpet floor! High areas of Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out, (Short Circuit) computer hardware components]

If you have two Ram Memory modules, one will be stacked on top of the other one. You remove the top one first, then access the bottom one.

To remove a ram memory module, simply ease the spring clips on either side -> OUT.
Out away from the Ram Memory module.
This action takes the 'Bumps' on the Spring Clips, out of the Side Notches on the Ram Memory module.

DO NOT get carried away. Just ease one spring clip out, then ease the other one out. You can bend the spring clips if you are too rough.
When both spring clip 'bumps' are out of the way, the Ram Memory module will spring up slightly.

Remove AT THAT ANGLE.

Slide the Ram Memory module out, at the same slight angle, (30 degrees?), that it just popped up to.

IF you lift the Ram Memory module straight up, you WILL damage the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the Ram Memory module; and the contact pins in the Ram Memory slot.

To install a Ram Memory module, look at the location of the Locating Notch on the Bottom.
This aligns with a Locating Lug, in the bottom of the ram memory slot.
ONLY goes in one way.

Locating Notch aligned with Locating Lug, slide the Ram Memory module in, in the SAME slight angle it came out at.
Make sure the gold plated contact pins of the Ram Memory module, are well seated in the ram memory slot.

(Ram Memory module is pushed in tightly, in the Ram Memory slot)
Then press down on the tilted up side, until the spring clips lock in place.

Here is a video demonstrating the above, but NOT your laptop,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbPaR1Ci-Ug

IF, you are ONLY installing ONE Ram Memory module, it MUST go in Slot 1. Also known as DIMM 1.

The Processor (CPU) reads what is in Slot 1 -> F-I-R-S-T.

Know this;
If you are using the regular Windows XP Home, or Pro; it is the 32-bit version.
If it is the Windows XP Pro 64-bit version, it will state so.
Either on the body of the laptop, or go to System Properties.

[Left-click on Start > then Right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the drop down list ]

Windows Vista 64-bit will state so also.

Point?
IF you have a 32-bit Operating System, your laptop will ONLY recognize about 3.2 to 3.5GB of ram memory; if you have 4GB installed.

Takes a 64-bit Operating System to recognize all 4GB.

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)

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/motherboards/2007/12/06/abit_ix38_quadgt/2

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.)

I m trying to upgrade my HP compaq nc6320 RAM MEMORY from 1GB to 4GB, Do i need BIOS upgrade if yes from were i can find the drivers and how can i do it? thanx i am gone wait for respond......


Hi,

As far as I know, the machine supports 4GB of ram, so you purchase the ram modules from a pc parts dealer and install them inside the machine, removing the existing ram, there are 2 slots, so you need 2, 2GB cards.

You do not require any drivers or bios update.

Windows will need to be upgraded to 64Bit version if you wish to use the full capacity. as normal windows is limited to 3-3.75GB

Further questions? let me know.

I have intel dg41rq motherboard with 2 gb kingston 667 mhz in one slot. can i put another 2 gb ram in other slot. if yes then should it have the same specification?


Intel DG41RQ Motherboard has two DDR2 (DIMM) sockets.
It Support DDR2 800 or DDR2 667 MHz DIMMs. Since you already have a 667 MHz RAM, it is recommended that you add another RAM of the same specification (DIMM DDR2 667 MHz)
However, if you add 800 MHz DIMM with 667 MHz, both would perform at 667 MHz. RAMs of different bus speed and latency usually work together but the performance is compromised.
It is always better to have RAM in pairs of same specification.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Samsung n150 plus is expandable to how many memory?


The Samsung N150 Laptop comes installed with 1GB of Memory and can be upgraded to a maximum of 2GB Memory. This computer has 1 (one) SO-DIMM memory slot, so to upgrade to 2GB of RAM, you will need to replace the installed RAM module with a single 2GB PC2-5300 DDR2-667 200pin SDRAM SO-DIMM memory module.

If you find this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

I have a compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc, was wondering how do i go about upgrading the RAM?


I have checked the Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Specification It Originally has 2GB Memory and supports upto 4GB RAM max. If you intend to upgrade the RAM, you can buy additional RAM and put them in you system. Here is the HP Guide to Replace RAM and How to Upgrade RAM Guide
Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX has two RAM slots for DDR-2 (533 or 667) Memory Modules. First you have to check that the RAM slot is available for additional RAM. I believe that it has two modules of 1GB each in both slots. So, you have to get two modules of RAM 2GB each to upgrade to 4GB (or one 2GB RAM module to upgrade to 3GB). Hence, it is recommended that you get 2GB replacement module for each 1GB module you have on you system from local laptop repair/ service center, which would be cost effective as existing 1GB RAM Modules would be useless for you upon upgrade.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

Have DIMM1 512MB RAM-what is highest avail RAM to update - Only 1 input for card


You need to check the specs of your laptop to see what is the maxium amount of RAM your laptop can support.
Although you can see one DIMM slot there may be another under the keyboard that already has a DIMM installed.
DIMM are avail in up to 4Gb most common 1Gb and 2Gb.
