You may have to check the speeds of the memory as some boards only take a certain speed after 2GB of ram, forcinh you to use different speed sticks, or look for the cmos clear terminals and clear the cmos settings and restart

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

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.

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

Radeon graphics card and 3rd RAM slot conflict


I thought this board looked familiar to me. I recall some rules for the memory cards. Do all your memory cards meet this requirement:

Supports up to 3GB PC1600/2100/2700/3200* DDR SDRAMs

If you are using DDR 400 you can only use 1 slot.

What kind of memory are you using?

You will need to remove the 2-512MB ram that are installed on your computer and buy 2-1GB sticks. There is no other way around this. Download CPU-Z program to find exact memory module needed before you buy the wrong one. Good luck.
