Emachine T5212 Ram Issue

Ok so this computer was given to me and its faster then my other Emachine so I've decided to use it instead. The Specs are; Intel® Pentium® D Processor 805 (dual-core) (2.66GHz, 533MHz FSB, 2 x 1MB L2 cache), ATI Radeon™ Xpress 200 (Chipset), 1024MB DDR2 (2 × 512MB), 533MHz (PC4200) Expandable to 2GB, which when I got it there was no ram in it, ATI Radeon™ Xpress 200 integrated graphics (which I have disabled beacuse I have a PCI-E Geforce 8400GT 512MB). So I put in both the ram sticks I had in my old computer which are both 1GB Kingston DDR2(4200) 1.8v, the only differnce is the one stick of ram is the newer skinny version. So at first I thought it had a bad ram slot so I switched them both around and both sots work, but if I put them both in it decides it wants to use Slot A instead of slot B...go figure. So I thought maybe the bios needed updated...so I went to the Emachines website downloaded and flashed with the lateset bios version....still did not work....soo I went to the Intel website and flashed the bios with theirs...did not work either....although now it sees the Ram in slot B instead of Slot A...lmao....I think I am going to try buying a Dual Channel kit and see if that works... but if anyone has any ideas...please let me know... thanx.

    also i would go to the website of the motherboard maker and look at the motherboard spec and see if you dimm is compatible It sounds like either your ram dimms are not as similar as you think and are incompatible or they are incompatible with the motherboard.

    Have you tried each piece of RAM individually? It sounds like one piece isn't up to par.

Did you get this problem fixed? I have the T5212 (which I really like) but want to upgrade the RAM prior to Internet 7, just in case

Thanks!

Check the e-machine website for its frequently asked questions and troubleshooting sections on you make and model of computer. Someone may have had the same problem and had a answer posted. Also check for the types of memory recommended for use in you model, check this list out with the type you are using. IF all that fails purchase a recommended memory pair and see if they work. If not you may indeed have some problem with the memory slots. Try cleaning the slots with spray on instant dry contact cleaner and a small brush like a toothbrush or horse hair brush. See if this improves the connections enough to let the unit use both memory sticks.Hope this helps you with your problem.

My T5212 computer doesn't see the 1gb of ram, why?


The RAM mybe be faulty or incompatible/wrong type for your computer.
Check the specification of the RAM that is required for your computer.
If you want to install 2 off 512 Mb RAM make sure the are the same make and model.

NTLDR is missing


Check your setup settings (BIOS) to make sure your booting from the correct drive. If the computer is trying to boot from the cd drive or USB, rather than the hard drive, you will receive this error message.

EMachine T5212 best boot Option. I don't know much about computers and I don't want to erase anything. What option is best to use in the "Boot Option Menu"?


if you have a recovery option you can try that. that option allows you to reload the previously known good start up operating system before you added any new updates. you should have an option to choose a previous date.

I've got a stupid question. If my memory or RAM is


If you replaced the faulty ram with the same name brand and/or same specs. you should not need to reinstall anything unless the old ram corrupted the OS file system, or the files in those programs.Now sometimes when you replace faulty parts with newer ones or i should say upgraded parts,(like faster ram or cpu),some of microsoft OS's will make you reinstall the whole OS and then your programs,because it will blue screen when trying to boot into the OS,But there are ways around that too.If you need a fix to repair install just let me know what os your using.

How do I tell me emachine T5212 to recognize newly installed ram?


The Ram specifications for your model are:
1024MB DDR2 (2 × 512MB), 533MHz (PC4200)
Expandable to 2GB

If you are using Microsoft Windows, the operating system will recognize the memory by itself, there is nothing you have to do. Go to your start menu, right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties". In the lower right corner of the "General" tab, you can read the amount of memory available to you.

If you want to know how to put RAM into your computer, have a look at this web page - it's a good video instruction. Make sure not to touch any of the electronic parts on the stick itself - try to hold it on the side.

If your computer does not recognize the newly installed RAM it can have different reasons:
  1. The RAM is bad. Nothing you can do but send it back and get it replaced.
  2. You got the wrong RAM. Look at Crucial's webpage (link) and compare the specs with what you've got. They are very reliable and the memory I bought from them always worked.
  3. It is possible that you have to install the RAM in pairs. (eMachine's web page (link) has no download for a manual and does not cover this topic.) It means, that either both memory slots have to be populated or even populated with the same kind of sticks (2 x 512MB, 2 x 1GB).
Solution: try to replace one of your old sticks with the new 1GB stick and see if that increases your memory. If that doesn't work, take both of the old sticks out and put the new 1GB stick in the slot closest to the CPU (look at the video: it's that unit with the fan on top). If that doesn't work either, try the other slot.
Last resort would be to contact eMachine. You can either use LiveChat or call them. The contact info is on their web page.

If all fails, come back here and leave a comment including what you did. I will check back and then we go from there.

Good luck!

Emachine T5212 will not boot up unless operating system disc in used. Get direction to enter boot disc.


Restart, press DEL to enter BIOS and change the boot priority/sequence to boot from your HDD, second choice will be from CD-ROM and last from floppy. Next after saving the changes allow it to boot normally....sodeep.

I don't what the problem is.


Firstly have you considered it is the game? try restalling

If that doesnt work, it is most likely your video card. dxdiag into run and click all the run test buttons you can see.
Update video drivers and try installing to a different pci slot.

It may be the video cards ram instead of your pcs ram.
but check the pcs ram is compatible.
