    I checked my installation and discovered the module was not pushed in all the way and all went well after I rebooted. Thanks for the input.

The new memory MUST be the same type as what is already in there.

I have a Sony Vaio FX802 with 384 MB ram, split 1 x 256MB and 1 x 128MB across 2 banks. Last week I noticed that I was running on 256MB only so I re-seated the 128MB module and that seemed ok for a time,...


when adding new memory always take all memory out, reinsert the new 256mb stick into the first memory socket dimm1 normally, boot the laptop up, if the laptop boots then fine the memory module is ok, shut down and insert the original 256mb into the second slot, dimm2 then boot the laptop it should now boot normally, if not there maybe problems with the memory slot itself, give it blow to get rid of any dust and try again, if this dosent work post back.

Satalite m35x-s161 how to replace the keyboard?


Toshiba Satellite How to remove keyboard and upgrade memory modules. This post was written by cj2600 on April 28, 2006
Posted Under: Toshiba Satellite A20/A25 --> toshiba-satellite-a20-a25-memory.jpgRemoving and replacing memory on a Toshiba Satellite A20 or A25 notebook is not as easy ad it should be. Both memory modules are located under the keyboard. A laptop keyboard has to be replaced in order to get access to the memory modules. Before you remove the keyboard do not forget to remove the laptop battery or you can damage the laptop. Be careful when you remove the keyboard securing strip; do not bend it too much. To remove the memory module from the slot on the system board, release the latches on both sides and the memory module will pop up. It will stay at a 30 degree angle to the system board. Firmly grasp the memory module and remove it from the slot.

A75 not recognizing all of the memory


How much of the memory is not being recognized out of the total RAM?
Most laptop video cards do not have built-in RAM and part of the main memory is used for video RAM. Depending upon the video chip, it could grab 256Mb or more RAM for video.
If the RAM is equal to the extra RAM module being installed, then the problem could be incompatible RAM module or a faulty memory expansion slot.
Try and use RAM with the same speed and from the same manufacturer.

Try remove the hard drive, if you can enter the BIOS mode, adjust the setting for hibernate( off recommended ).
If the problem still persist, try remove/ clear the CMOS battery inside the main board.You need to open all the case to do it!!

Hope it's work!!!!

My Inspiron 1525 does not recognize the memory I added. It had 3GB, I removed the 1GB and added a 2GB. When it did not register the additional memory, I put the old one back in and it now does not...


Once you change the ram, you have to boot to the system setup so that the BIOS can recognize the new module.
When inserting the ram module in the slot, it should be at a 30 degree angle to the system and inserted till the golden contacts can not be seen looking straight down at the slot. Then press the module down until the retention clips click. The top edge of the contacts should then be barely visible.
Once the RAM has been properly inserted, then boot to the system setup, exit then boot to windows

Inspiron 2200 Memory Module not recognised


Are you sure its the correct speed/type of RAM? According to Google your laptop takes PC2700 DDR RAM, ensure you are using this in both slots to avoid problems. If you have it fully inserted into the slot and nothing happens when you swtich it on then the laptop doesnt like that type of RAM and you'll need to change it.

Installed new memory modules can get to the toshiba post screen


Two ways to approach this.

1. try 1 stick at a time and see if you can boot and the system is working,
2. Download and run memtest to see if you got bad memory.

Adding Memory to HP Pavilion N5160


The motherboard will only recognize 256 module. If you go to crucial.com and run the memory test, it will tell you the maximum memory the motherboard will support. So buyin a higher memory stick is wasting your money since it will not support it.

Unstable after RAM increased to 1.21 GB from .5 GB


If you have another PC, use ImgBurn or another program to burn a bootable CD (ISO) or bootable floppy (if your laptop has a floppy drive) of MemTest86+

If you don't have another PC to burn the image with, remove the newly-added RAM to get your laptop back to a stable state and create the CD or floppy disk.

(Reinstall your added RAM if you removed it earlier)

Boot your laptop with the MemTest86+ CD. Make sure the "Passes" goes to at least 2. If any errors are found they will be listed. If errors *are* found, then either your new RAM is not 100% compatible with your system, it is defective, or it is not compatible with the RAM already on your system (if your laptop has more than one slot for RAM).

Change the RAM configuration (replace the RAM, remove old RAM if your laptop has more than one RAM upgrade slot) and repeate the MemTest86+ test until you get through at least 2 passes without any errors.

Despite what people (even manufacturers) say, not all memory is created equally, and faster memory modules don't always work in place of slower ones. Likewise, you can have two memory modules that work perfectly fine in a system when they are alone, but don't work together in the same system.
