Memory upgrade I have a HP media center 7160n that came with 2 512mb sticks in it.I just put 2 1024mb sticks in and the computer recognized them, but my computer seems to be running even slower than it did with just 1 gig.And I mean slower . Any thoughts from anybody. I feel as if I just flushed 89 bucks down the drain.

Some motherboards require you to install memory in slot 1 and 3. leaving 2 and 4 open. go into bios and make sure it reconizes it

Did you replace the 240 pin DDR2 ram or did you buy (2) 1024Mb sticks of slower DDR ram? Computer has 4 slots, 2 for DDR2 and 2 for slower DDR...just a thought: maybe replaced with slower type.

Adding memory, new total not recognized: IBM Thinkpad R51e-1844

Ram should always be paired. Same type, speed and size in each slot. You may have 1 SIMM/DIMM/DDR that has 2 sides of chips and the other with 1 which will do exactly what you state. RAM reads across the chips simultaneously. So if you have a different one in each slot it can go bonkers and do goofy stuff on you.

Does not read my Memory stick any more

Hello Cbaltzer,

Try to use in another PC, your memory stick, and see if work, if so, perhaps it is a problem with your other PC, or the USB port, see if is 2.0 or 1.0 USB compatible.
good luck

Need new burner

if you have ide connectors (normally there is 2, 1 black, 1 blue) on the motherboard which you probably will have; purchase an IDE type one as you get the cable with them and use a power connector which you will have spare from your power supply unit as they are cheaper and easy to fit. See below for what to look for on your motherboard called IDE0 and IDE1
