Hi
the one working stick of memory needs to be put into the first memory bank.these are normally 2 coloured different to the other 2.make sure they are securely in place. plastic clips lock into memory stick.once done while power lead is removed turn on at tower.this will clear memory.plug back in and give it a try,if ok add another stick of memory although you said the other three sticks don't work give it a try they may work and save you a fortune.

SOURCE: gateway sb-4100-b won't recognize new memory

REmove all the old memory and replace it by a new memory, you should test memory 1 by 1 .

first install the 1 memory in the first slot. then boot the computer using only 512mb. if this successful. shutdown and insert the second memory, then test again.

note: memory should be:

1. DDR SDRAM
2. the two 512 should be the same brand.

The 831 only supports 2 gigs of ram any more and it wont start. You can probably fit a 9800 in it but would be a very tight fit.

SOURCE: Windows XP Virtual Memory is low. How can I regain memory?

Virtual memory is "memory" on your hard drive, not actual memory. The best way to regain this is reboot and shut down some of the stuff that runs automatically when you DO boot up.

(This Virtual memory is space set aside on your hard drive that the processor moves data into and out of like it would put data on a memory module ... but in comparing the two, the virtual memory is SLOW.)


You can increase the size of your virtual memory to anything you want. Some say too large a allocation will slow you down and too little will cause crashing or slow opertion. You are 99.44% probably set to let Windows manage your virtual memory (default) at this time.

Check all of the other connections all around where you was at. Sometimes it dont take much to knock one of them loose. Also take the chip backn out and take a pencil eraser and clean the contacts on the chip with it.

    I ADDED NEW MEMORY AND THE COMPUTER WONT BOOT I JUST KEEPS RESETING AND DOING THE SAME THINGHOW CAN I FIX THIS.


    There are several things that could be wrong here: 1. You didnt install the memory correctly, open it back up and remove the memory sticks and reinstall them 2. Try putting only one memory stick at a time, maybe one memory slot is bad. 3. One of your memory sticks could be defective 4. You got the wrong memory sticks for your computer and they are incompatible with your pc, contact your computer manufacture to find out the exact memory sticks you need.
    Please leave me a good rating.

    My computer need to install more memory what i need to do


    First you need to check your owner's manual or online at the Gateway site to find out how much memory your computer can hold and what type.
    Then you need to see how many memory slots you have. You can then go out and buy the memory you need and remove the old and put in the new.
    You may just be able to add memory if there are empty slots--otherwise, you'll have to remove the old smaller memory sticks and replace them with larger ones.

    Trying to put new hard drive.when it starts up it beeps 3 times and no picture on the monitor.is the power supply bad? originaly the hard drive crashed and the trying to reinstall it kept coming up error...


    3 short beeps is a base 64K RAM failure

    Remove added memory
    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.
    • Additional information about determining the type of memory to use in a memory upgrade can be found on document CH000910.
    Open computer and reseat 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.
    Swap memory location
    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.
    Try another computers memory
    If you have access to another computer that uses the same type of memory try using its known good memory in your computer.
    If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard and/or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.
    Replace memory
    If you've determined or believe that the memory in y our computer is bad we suggest that you replace it.
