The specs from Gateway do not say what the maximum memory is for the MX8741, but if you look it up on Newegg, it shows max memory as 2GBs.

no it will not work the manufacture of the laptop is made by in that period is 2 GB is most high. That will be the most of the computer and laptops are sold by upgrading the components.
but most of the computers and laptops are not more upgradeable because the new models are introduced day by day they want lanuch the new computers and laptops so you cant upgrade to 4GB . maximum is 2 GB in your laptop.

I upgraded Memory to 4GB with Two 2GB SD Ram Modules but System shows Only One 2GB module and does not show/recognize second module. BIOS Setting Shows Second Slot/RAM Module Not Activated.


is the module in properly?,is anything broken?? switch them around and see if the module is good or not,also,just because the motherboard supports 2 modules,if intel only recognizes 2gb then that is all,whether you have 2 1gb modules or 2 2gb modules,upgrade your intel chip and upgrade your bios

2*2GB (4GB) ddr2 shows up as 2*1GB ddr2 (2GB)


It could be a problem if you are running a 32 bit operating system. I know that there is a limit of around 2gb on any 32bit windows install. this can be fixed by installing a 64bit version, IF your hardware supports it. You would need a 64bit cpu to install 64bit windows. If this is not the reason you are having the problem, the only other reason that would make sense would be that your motherboard doesnt support more than 1gb of ram per DIMM hence it shows that two are insalled but can only use one gb each. This i think is the more logical answer because I think the limit on GB for win 32bit was more like 3gb. good luck

Can I add more RAM to my Averatec All-In=One A2?


Hey Nella Coffey

Unfortunately, more RAM cannot be installed due the limit of Slots available. However, you may be able to upgrade the current RAM modules and replace them. It appears it has 2048mb (2GB) of RAM which is possible split into two 1GB sticks. You "may" be able to upgrade to 4GB (split into two 2GB sticks). This is the current set up for the computer: 2048MB (4096MB max) SDRAM ' Memory Slots available for Upgrade: 0 ' Maximum RAM per available slot: 2048MB


Good Luck

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 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!

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

I would like to upgrade memory, but want to assure compatability


Let me make sure, even if your motharboard supports 4 GB memory, A system of 32 bit (most users use 32 bit and among intel processors only intel core2duo/dual core supports 64 bit) wont show more than 3 GB of ram. its an operating system limitation.

But sorry to say, The max limit for your motherboard is 2GB.

Thanks

Memory upgrade problem


I did some checking on your model laptop and it says that the maximum supported amount of ram is 2gb (2 x 1gb) and so since the slots are made for 1gb max each then thats all they will see even with bigger 2gb chips installed
