Beeping noise after installed memory on ecs motherboard L4S5MG

I wanted more memory on my pc & I recently installed extra 512mb ram into slot 2 & the pc started quckly & then slowed.On checking the system info it still showed 256mb (samsung) ram. I then removed the 256mb mem from slot 1 & replaced it with the 512mb (VTech mem) & the 256mb into slot 2. When I turned on the pc it gives a continous beeping noise for 5 seconds & repeats again after few seconds.I tried just leaving the 512mb ram & then the 256mb ram but still getting the beeping noise. I have rechecked all connections including the IDE cables which I removed to access the memory slots but still getting the beeping noise.

Some older computers, like mine, have a maximum memory they can handle. This one happens to be 1 gig, but yours may be less. Do you have an older computer? Yup, you do. As seen here, the maximum supported ram is 256. I'm sorry. Please rate.

    Ok sweet. What kind of ram are you using?

    Well when I had that problem, it turned out to be the buss speed. Yours is... well according to your comp specs is 100, but if she handles 2 gigs of ram, then you must have upgraded. Is there any more info on the original ram? ddr266is the bus speed, but this is the new ram. You might have different bus speed. See if you can find it.

IBM T23 wont turn on after adding new RAM


Hi - according to memory suppliers your T23 has the following memory capacity / requirements:

  • IBM ThinkPad T23 maximum RAM capacity: 1GB
  • Your IBM has Two (2) memory slots or sockets
  • Module upgrade PIN count is: 144-PIN
  • The memory speed is: SDRAM 133MHz, PC133
  • The laptop DIMM type for the ThinkPad T23 is: SODIMM, SO-DIMM, Small Outline DIMM
  • Non ECC

If you are meeting these requirements, you may have a defective module.

Also, according to Lenovo's page on the machine:

Memory
The system has 128MB or 256MB of memory standard and can be configured for up to 1GB of addressable memory. Memory options up to 512MB SDRAM SO DIMMs each can be added in the two available slots for memory expansion. The standard 128MB of memory is expandable up to 640MB and the 256MB of memory is expandable up to 768 MB of addressable memory with 64, 128, 256, or 512MB SO DIMMs without removing the 128MB SO DIMM that is standard in one of the internal slots for memory. For customers that need the maximum 1GB to which memory can be expanded, it is necessary to replace the 128MB or 256MB card with a 512MB card plus add another 512MB card in the extra slot. Only 133MHz DIMM memory can be used in this system. The use of 100MHz DIMM memory is not supported in the T23 systems.

This means yo can trouble shoot the 512MB modules individually by installing one of the original 128MB modules and one of the new 512MB modules (for a total system memory of 640MB). If it does not boot, try again with the other 512MB module. This will help you identify a defective module that may be preventing the machine from booting.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Can I install more than 512mb of memory on a Presario s5300nx. I actually want to do 2gb or more. If so, how can i safely do it w/o messing up my computer. Thank you.


> I want to do 2GB or more.

As the Rolling Stones sang, "you can't always get what you want".

See: http://www.memorystock.com/ram/CompaqPresarios5300nxRAM.html

which states that your motherboard has 2 RAM slots, with a maximum of 512MB per slot.

So, how many RAM slots currently are empty, and how much RAM is installed?

If you currently have 2 sticks, at 256MB/stick, you will need to remove both sticks, and install two new sticks.

If you currently have 512MB of RAM, and one empty slot, then that web-page describes the exact type of RAM that you can insert into that empty slot.

Hi guys, i have installed 2 sdrams pc-133 512mb,together 1gb, but yhe bios and the system shows me only the half memory,whyyyyyyyy


Are you sure that both sticks of RAM are properly "seated"?

How much memory is found when only one stick is used?
How much memory is found when only the other stick is used?

Which motherboard? Some very-old motherboards only support a maximum of 256MB per slot.

How many memory-chips are on each stick of RAM?
If you have purchased "high-density" memory (small number of memory-chips),
and your motherboard only supports "low-density" memory, then only 1/2 or 1/4 of the actual RAM will be used.

ASUS P4S533-MX MOTHERBOARD FAILED TO RECOGNIZE DDR400/DDR333 RAM


In you case compatibility is your problem or your memory needs a clean up. First clean up the memory's pins. Use a pencil eraser. Then try only one by one so that you will know if there is a problem in each memory. Insert one of the memory then turn on your PC. If it boot up or it is okay try the other one. Then if it is also okay, try both of it inserted and turn on your PC. If it not okay there is a compatibility problem. Make sure the brands are the same so the compatibility are never be a problem.

Hi..i have a P4m800-M7 rev 3.1 motherboard which recently had only 1 512MB DDR 400mhz RAM.. itried to install an additional 256MB DDR 400mzh ram but the system recognizes only the 512MB RAM. I've tried...


Check that your memory is supported, according to Biostar documentation for your motherboard:

Single Channel Mode DDR2 Memory
Registered DIMM and ECC DIMM is not supported

Re-check the memory module's specifications.

Total amount of RAM not recognized by computer


are the modules the same specs? you may have some incompatibality between them. the board may be reading the ram right it may be you have four 256 sticks instead of 2 of each. read the motherboard manual it might shed some light here.

Can you expand the memory on a Systemax Intel SIS651 System


Your motherboard is actually a Foxconn 651M03.

According to your system you have :
512MB DDR333 PC2700 Non-ECC Memory (512MB x 1)
(One stick of 512MB)

The motherboard manual says this:
System Memory
Two 184-pin DDR DIMM slots
Supports PC1600/PC2100/PC2700 memory
Supports 64Mb/128Mb/256Mb/512Mb technology up to 2GB

(This means you can have a total of up to 2 Gigabytes of RAM)

If you upgrade your RAM, you will need to make sure that you get the correct type.

If you want to keep the RAM you have, you will only be able to have 1.5 GB of RAM because you only have two slots to work with. If you want to upgrade to the full 2 GB, you will need to buy 2, 1 GB sticks.

check the voltage on your new ram.
For ddr2 you need both slots filled.(this the memory I would use)
Make sure you put it in the right slots.
make sure that BIOs recognises each stick.
Let me know if these work for you.
