Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop

2 Answers

I upgraded the memory to my Netvista computer and salvaged the 512 Dimms to install in an older netvista with 128 mb RAM, but I couldn't get a signal to the monitor and even when I put the original Dimm back in, it became very hot and still no signal. What did I do wrong?

If your not getting video with either memory in the computer then my suggestion would be to try one more known working stick.

If you still dont' get video then it would seem to me like the motherboard is bad since its getting very hot. Also check to see if the power supply is getting very hot, if so then change out the power supply to a new one to make sure the system is staying cool.

Probably didn't seat the memory completely. There is no way to tell for sure without physically inspecting your computer.

    I have compaq presario 5000 series...and iwant upgrade my ram ...i have 128+128 sd ram so how much i upgrade my ram...can i upgrade 512+512 sd ram OR 256+256 sd ram...thank you


    the RAM upgrade will depend on ur motherboard capacity and specification.
    u need to check ur MB manual
    if ur MB can have only SD RAM then only SD RAM upgrade is possible...DDR will not work....
    so be careful while buying ur RAM

    intelD845GLLy MB...the following details are from the intel website

    http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845glly/sb/CS-012825.htm

    System Memory Features
    The D845GLLY board provide the following memory features:
    • Two DIMM sockets supporting 3.3 V (only) 168-pin 133 MHz Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
    • Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only
    • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
    • Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only
    • Suspend to RAM
    Caution Do not use ECC DIMMs with the Desktop Board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the Desktop Board.
    Integrator's Notes:
    • Registered DIMMs are not supported on the Desktop Board.
    • This Desktop Board has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated on this board.




    Note To be fully compliant with all applicable PCI33 SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance.
    hope this helps

    Problems with 3 brand new PC 133 512 MB RAM in Netvista 6794


    That last RAM probably is good. Many motherboards have problems using many different memory. All of the memory you have should be at least identical to ensure that they work. When RAM run at different speed or require a little more voltage, they will not let your motherboard boot. You can try mixing up the order you put the RAM in. Try putting the last RAM in the first slot by itself, the motherboard should boot. Then try the rest.

    Also, whenever you add or change hardwares, you should clear the CMOS/BIOS settings.

    I went and bought new ram for my computer. it's an IBM desktop. type 6792. a pc133 512MB sdram. my computer will not pick it up. how do i get the computer to pick up the ram? it is the right kind of ram?


    I checked at http://www.buffalotech.com/products/memory/select/select-dimm/ and according the the memory configurator there your IBM Netvista 6792 takes this type of memory which can be ordered from them PC-133mhz SDRAM DIMM 168 pin, it indicated that your pc has 3 slots for memory and the maximum size you can put in each slot is 512 MB which would give you the maximum memory of 1536 MB. I have had problems in the past when replacing memory in IBM PC's some modules won't work because IBM uses different memory than other Manufacturers. But give Buffalo a try, their memory is guaranteed.

    RAM cuantity


    The motherboard you mentioned supports DDR1 RAM.

    For windows xp and general application 512 MB is enough.
    But if you use memory intensive applications like image/video editing then you can opt for 1-2 GB RAM.

    When i add a memory in damaged DIMM slot showing black screen?


    Try moving the working DIMM to other slots, it should work in any slot, if it does, the other ram u have is incompatible or bad

    Install a matched pair of DIMMs (equal in speed: DDR266, DDR333, or
    DDR400; density: 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, or 1 GB; and
    technology: 128 Mb, 256 Mb, or 512 Mb) in DIMM 0 in both Channels A and
    B. If additional memory is to be used, install another matched pair of DIMMs
    in DIMM 1 in both Channels A and B.
