Remove both memory modules and reseat them firmly in slots. If it still shows only 1gb then remove both again and try one at a time in each slot. You either have 1 bad module, 1 bad memory slot, or one of the modules was not seated properly.

SOURCE: getting a blue screen

first off, try just one mem stick in slot 1, if the m/c comes up with bad bios checksum then you have a faulty bios, updating this to v0403 should sort out your problems. oh but make sure when you update you dont have any mem in slot 1 because it wont work. if you still having problems then take it back to where you bought it from and get a different board.

SOURCE: RAM MEMORY WONT INSTALL/DOES NOT WORK

It sounds like the RAM you ordered is defective.
I would put the your old ram in and verify that the system boots and operates properly. If it does, then I would send the RAM in for replacement.

I hope this helps,

Thanks for using FixYa,

Eric

SOURCE: p5vdc-mx ram displaying 1gb, instead of 2gb in

Remove the memory card in the motherboard and then clean the pins of the memory card by an eraser of a pencil and then plug it again. Start the computer and see if it works.

That motherboard will support 2gig maximum of DDR1 Ram at speeds of 266Mhz. You can still use upto 400Mhz but the speed will just be reduced to 266Mhz. Cheers from Scott and plz vote

If you upreage the RAM to 2Gb by inserting a 2nd 1Gb memory module then the 2nd RAM maybe faulty or incompatible.
If you insert a 2gb memory module to replace the 1Gb memory module then it maybe faulty or incompatible.
Try using the same make and RAM speed as the original RAM module.

Trying to upgrade from 1gb ram to 2gb ram and when both are installed, laptop will not come on. It works with only 1gb stick installed. Any suggestions??


without knowing the model number this is hard to explain but allot of laptops are limited to how much ram you can install. check your model number and look at the specs on it. in the specs it tell you how much ram it can handle. hope this helps. please rate.

Here's my issue. Ok i have 2 ram slots. When I have 2 1GB ram cards in the slots the computer registers 2GB ram. When I put in 2GB card and 1GB card, it only registers 2GB RAM. No idea why. I bought...


the issue may be the ram is not the same like a PC100 will not work with a PC300 ram card but if you have the same like a 2GB DDR2 and a 1GB DDR2 it will work unless your computer can only see 2GB of ram then i cannot help you

Just installed 2 2GB cards (Corsair VS2GB800D2) to replace the 1 1GB card in my emachines EL1200 series. Computer will not boot. replaced the old card and it booted right up.


Will it boot with only ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks installed?
Will it boot with ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks AND one of the 1GB memory-sticks?

Look closely at the 1GB memory-sticks.
Does the label show 'DDR266' or 'DDR333' or 'DDR400' or 'PC2100' or 'PC2700' or 'PC3200' ?
Do the 2GB memory-sticks have _identical_ information?
It's definitely _not_ acceptable to have "slower" RAM (smaller numbers) in the new RAM,
but it _might_ be acceptable to have "faster" RAM (larger numbers).

What is the max ram speed my pc can take


According to some research, your desktop has 4 RAM slots available. The total maximum RAM your desktop can hold is 2GB (2048MB). Furthermore, each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB (1024) but cannot exceed the 2GB total.
This means you can theoretically install 2 x 1GB RAM DIMMS in 2 RAM slots or 4 x 512MB RAM DIMMS. Both will meet the desktops 2GB limitation.
The RAM specifications for your desktop are as follows:
RAM Limit: 2GB (2048MB) RAM Slot Type: SO-DIMM RAM Type: DDR1 (not DDR2 or DDR3) RAM Speed: PC3200/DDR400 ECC Type: Non-ECC
TIP: The RAM is DDR which means that while you can install them as singles (single-channel mode), the system will see a speed benefit from installing them as matched pairs (dual-channel mode).

Could I use MacBook Pro 1G RAM (hynix 1GB 2Rx16 PC3-8500S-7-A1) to upgrade my T400 2G RAM to 3G?


Hello thx5,
It depends on how the 2GB in your T400 is currently configured. If the 2GB in there now is just one 2GB stick of RAM then yes you can add the other 1GB stick and then you will have 3GB of RAM installed. If your 2GB is two 1GB sticks of RAM (which is more likely to be the case) then the 1GB stick you have from your Macbook Pro isn't going to help.

Note: your laptop can handle up to 8GB of RAM via two 4GB sticks.

Hope this helps, if so please leave some good feedback. Thanks.

Installing 2GB of memory in my Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V2020


Here is the problem, the laptop take 2GB RAM. 1GB in each slot, so get 2X1GB RAM. They are cheap now. You need 2, 1GB sticks of ram. For cheap prices go to Newegg.com
