Question about Gateway N214 Laptop

Open Question

How can I increase the memory card size in my son's Gateway N214, model no. NAV50 with 1 gig of memory. Can I increase the memory in this computer? Does it have only 1 memory card in it? I have a 2G card: ID# CT25664AC667.16FE 2BD 200 PIN DDR2 SODIUM 258Mx64 and it has one more number on it: BP112ZG.5H and a couple of numbers by the bar codes. Any idea if I can add it or swap out the other card? Is it the wrong kind of card?

SOURCE: Cannot upgrade memory on my Gateway MX3215

Yes this laptop can hold 1 GIG of RAM and that should using this type of RAM SODIMM (PC4300), if you still have the same problem try upgrading first using 2 piece of 256MB or 2 piece of 512 MB so we can see it will be working fine on those capacity....

SOURCE: I need the size or model number for a replacement

Compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery.

SOURCE: upgrade video card or increase video memory on a

Unfortunately, there isn't any way to increase the video performance of this model. Only very few laptops have interchangeable video cards and this isn't one of them, sadly. Video RAM can sometimes be increased in the BIOS by hitting F2 when the computer is first starting up (during the Gateway screen) and fiddling around with that, but it's probably a long shot because usually only enthusiast laptops have that function.

Gateway desktop fx 7026 memory issue, has 4 slots came with( 2 )2 gb sticks = 4 gigs it came with. when i add 2 extra gig it doesnt recognize.


the specs i read says 8 gig is the max. here is what it says for RAM
RAM
  • Installed Size 4.0 GB / 8.0 GB (max)
  • Technology DDR2 SDRAM
  • Memory Speed 667.0 MHz
  • Form Factor DIMM 240-pin
  • Features Dual channel memory architecture
  • Configuration Features 2 x 2 GB

check to make sure you have added the right type of memory. also look at your user manual. it should tell you where and how to place the added sticks. sometimes they have to be added in pairs or have to be in specific slots. also if you dont have the manual it is on the gateway site. you should type in your model and serial number and get all the info you need.

Remember to choose the drive you would like to use to increase the virtual memory. In most cases it usually your C: Drive. You can set the initial size and maximum size after clicking the Custom size check box.Remember its better to keep the Virtual memory values the same.

Also having enough available space is absolutely necessary for your virtual memory and RAM to function properly.

My operating system is windows 98, i recently upgraded my memory card from i gigabyte to 2 gigs, but every time i boot my computer there is an error message low in memory, the question is; how can i boot...


CAUSE:
The Windows 32-bit protected-mode cache driver (Vcache) determines the maximum cache size based on the amount of RAM that is present when Windows starts. Vcache then reserves enough memory addresses to permit it to access a cache of the maximum size so that it can increase the cache to that size if needed. These addresses are allocated in a range of virtual addresses from 0xC0000000 through 0xFFFFFFFF (3 to 4 gigabytes) known as the system arena.

On computers with large amounts of RAM, the maximum cache size can be large enough that Vcache consumes all of the addresses in the system arena, leaving no virtual memory addresses available for other functions such as opening an MS-DOS prompt (creating a new virtual machine).

WHAT CAN U DO?
To work around this problem, use one of the following methods:
  • Use the MaxFileCache setting in the System.ini file to reduce the maximum amount of memory that Vcache uses to 512 megabytes (524,288 KB) or less. For additional information about how to use the MaxFileCache setting, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 108079 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/108079/EN-US/ ) 32-Bit File Access Maximum Cache Size
  • Use the System Configuration utility to limit the amount of memory that Windows uses to 512 megabytes (MB) or less.For additional information about how to use the System Configuration utility, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 181966 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/181966/EN-US/ ) System Configuration Utility Advanced Troubleshooting Settings
  • Reduce the amount of memory that is installed in your computer to 512 MB or less.

Want to increase memory above 1 gig. compaq nx9010


You may have incompatible memory module. Just put in one memory module in at a time to see if it boots up, this will determine which module was not compatible.
