If the program was hard written to your hard disk drive then the chances of it "vanishing" after you remove a ram module is practically nil. I've seen weird thing like this happen before so Id probably start by scanning your system for virus's , spy/mal ware etc if you download a lot of free junk from the web. Was there a reason you removed the ram module in the first place?

SOURCE: About my On Board Video Card

here is the manual if you need it http://dlsvr05.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4ge-mx/e1862_p4ge-mx.pdf although it sheds no light on the video memory issue. if you go into device manager, select the display adapter and right click on it for properties. you should see a "resources" tab which will give you the memory adresses allocated. You can change these although unfortunately I don't know what limits you can change them within for your board, usually they would be set to the maximum that the driver will use, but not always. If you fancy having a play be careful as you can really screw up your machine. Personally I would recommend getting a graphics card, you can find some pretty good cheap ones with memory expansion slots on, then your card can grow with the technology for a while. if it is an agp card then the aperture size settings would make a difference, not otherwise. Hope this helps :)

Absolutely, 2 Gigs stick of RAM exist. Unfortunately your motherboard's maximum memory supported is 2GB. This site specifies very clearly 1 gig stick max per slot:

You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords.


















To erase the RTC RAM:









1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.











2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.









3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.









4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to reenter data.











Note: You may also need to remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard in some cases.

I have an old acre desk top that I use purely for music. It has 2 512 DDR 3 ram sticks that is replaced with 2 1gb sticks and it won't boot with them so I put the original ones back in and no go. I ha


Sounds like you static shocked a stick. You should always be grounded when handling components. Try putting in only 2@512m sticks at a time until computer boots to find the bad stick. Also,when it boots,check memory size at bootup.Make sure it sees 1G

When i turn on my laptop lights come on then it beeps twice tries to boot up beeps twice again then shuts off


Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

First, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the memory cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date.


To access System Restore in Windows 7: Open the Start Menu. Click on All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and System Restore

Hope this helps.

I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

Motherboard for compaq pcsr5109uk have upgraded to 1,5 GB this adding a 1 GB ram since doing this pc will not boot up,pc has said that the mother board has died this has only started since new ram have...


From what you have stated, the original ram memory was two sticks of 512MB.
It's PC2-5300
(DDR2 Sdram at 667MegaHertz)

When installing ram memory, and installing two sticks with one stick being larger, the larger stick of ram memory is installed in Slot 1.

This is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
(The Processor reads Slot 1 first)
On the motherboard it has DIMM 1 printed next to Slot 1.

The 1GB stick should go into Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and the 512MB stick should go into Slot 2 (DIMM 2)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01077654&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3457899

Scroll down for the motherboard illustration, and photo.

Won't boot up with the original ram memory installed again?
1) What type, and size of 1GB ram memory did you install?

2) What ram memory slot did you install it in?

3) Did you follow anti-static precautions BEFORE you put your hands inside your computer, and BEFORE you took that ram memory stick out of it's protective anti-static bag?

[Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

You may not even see it, or feel it.
Poof!
No computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame to relieve your body of Static.

{A couch, bed, or directly on a carpet floor are HIGH areas of Static]

Before you answer my questions try this;

If the two sticks of 512MB PC2-5300 are still installed, follow anti-static precautions, and remove them.

Take a pencil eraser, and clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of each ram module. (Stick)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

(The above example is DDR Sdram, not DDR2 Sdram. I posted the link so that the gold plated contacts are clearly shown.

DDR Sdram has 184 contact pins.
92 on each side.
DDR2 Sdram has 240 contact pins.
120 on each side)

Remove the eraser dust with air. Use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth.

Reinstall the ram memory modules.

Computer unplugged from power, press the Power On button in.
Hold the button in for a count of Five seconds.
(Count 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory settings.

Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on.

I await your findings, and answers to my questions.

Tried to upgrade ram with 2 new pc133 sticks of 256mb ea. Didn't work. What's wrong? Are there switches on the motherboard I need to change? Or something else?


No there are no DIP switches to change, or jumpers to move on your motherboard, in regards to your BIOS recognizing ram memory installed.
(BIOS. Basic Input/Output System. This tiny program, {64MB in size usually}, that is burned into your BIOS chipset, is what recognizes ram memory on your computer)

Things to know about the older Sdram ram memory.
1.It's really SDR Sdram. Single Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory.
DDR is Double Data Rate Sdram, DDR2 is Double Data Rate 2 Sdram, and so on.

Point? All ram from SDR to DDR3, IS Sdram.

2.Standards have been set by JEDEC for computer ram memory starting from DDR Sdram on up. This standards were not implemented back in the day of SDR Sdram.

Point? Ram memory manufacturers didn't all follow the same standard, and ram memory made for one computer, would Not work in another computer.
This means you need THE ram memory for YOUR eMachines computer.

Main factors when buying SDR Sdram,
A.Correct type. You know this. SDR Sdram.
168 gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the ram 'stick'. (82 on each side)

B.Correct 'Speed'. ('Speed' is slang for Frequency Rate) You know this. SDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 133MHz. (Or also known as PC133)

C.It must be low density Non-ECC ram memory. It cannot be high density ECC. (Error Control Correcting. Used for Server computers mostly)

D.Correct CAS Latency. Also known as Ram Timings. 3-3-3-3-2 would be normal for SDR Sdram.

E.Correct Chip Configuration. How the DRAM chips are accessed. DRAM chips are the black rectangular chips on each side of your ram memory 'stick'. Also what size the DRAM chips are in MegaBytes. (MB)

F.What the Maximum TOTAL Amount is for the motherboard. Is it 256MB? 512MB? Or more?

G.What the Maximum Amount is for EACH ram 'slot'. (Correct speak for 'Slot' is Bank)

H.Do you have four ram 'slots'? You MUST have a ram stick in Slot 1. This is the slot closest to the processor. It is the first ram slot the processor 'reads'.

The memory appears to be the right kind.

Try installing just one 1GB module, and run the diagnostics (press F12 at boot time and select diagnostics).

Open your chassis (cabinet) and look for the bios jumper on the motherboard. It is located near the SATA ports next to the Front Auxiliary Fan connector. Put the jumper in 2-3 to enable maintenance mode. This will allow you to enter bios settings. Then redo any changes that you had made, i.e. reset the memory configuration to auto and save the changes and exit.
Now replace the jumper in 1-2 position. Reboot. And your system will work fine.
