Upgrade to memory

Does memory upgrade need to be in pairs? Or could I replace just one of the 256M parts with a 1GB part to upgrade to 1.25G?

Depend on the capacity of the mainboard.... you cannot just arbritarily replace mem for higher capacity... the Architecture of the mem has to be taken into account, or the memory you buy may not work properly. and mem which may function in one model may not work in a similar model....for instance mem for the 3000 series may not work in a 3030 or a 3050 so it is best to check.

There is a memory configuration tool here which you can use to find which mem is best suited for your machine. also kingston's mem has a lifetime guarantee

Good afternoon, mikieat!
Yep! That should work. After installing the memory modules, the 3000 should come up and automatically detect and configure your added memory.

I can not upgrade the memory of my laptop, i have buy a new 256M SDR ram and put in the opposite socket and restart, but its BIOS still 256M at the same(it should be 512M). I try more than ten times but...


try to remove all memory and place only the new memory, if things goes right, there is a problem on the compatibility on your new memory, it should have the same speed as your old memory

What memory can i upgrade to for my system?


The Gateway GT4022 comes from the factory with two sticks each of 512 MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz dual channel, non-ECC memory, for a total of 1GB (1024 MB). You have 4 slots for memory. Each slot can have up to 1GB for a total of 4GB's. You should install the memory in _pairs_ for best performance. Also, when installing in pairs, you'll need to populate the pairs in slots 1 and 3 (_not_ slots 1 and 2 if using only one pair). Slots tabs on slots 1 and 3 are white. The tabs on tabs 2 and 4 are black.
You can go to memory websites like www.crucial.com to get a free scan of your computer to see all the memory options available for your computer.

Upgrading Memory on an AOpen MX46-533V


Well yes, in a way the amount of memory should match in each slot. So with two slots you can have two 512MB which will give you 1GB. Or you can get rid of those and use one slot and just put a 1GB stick in it. Finally, you can buy two 1GB sticks, put one in each slot and have 2GB...it is not recommended to put 512MB in one slot and then 1GB in the other slot. That will cause your computer to become unstable..hope this answers your questions.

Memory upgrade issue


Most ram has to go in pairs. Buy another stick of the 1GB, and it will run fine.

Hard disk and ram


Hello Kevin Shaggy...

Let me see if I can help you out a bit...
Adding a 160gb to a 40gb does give you 200gb. BUT!!! you will loose a little bit on each one after formatting the harddrive. The new drive will wind up being about 157 or 159gb give or take a little.
ANY harddrive partition, whether it is a c:, d:, etc...you DO have to format EACH drive letter.
If you partition your 160gb harddrive into 2 parts, (2) 80gb drives, then they would get two drive letters and both of them get formatted.
IF the 40gb drive is C: then the new 160gb partitioned in half would be D: & E:.
CDROM Drive would be F: and so on....
Floppy Drives, CDrom Drives, DVD Drives, you do not have to format like a hard drive...

If you add a 1gb stick of memory to your existing 256mb stick of memory then you WOULD have 1gb + 256mb. If you remove the 256mb and just add 1gb, then you would just have 1gb.

ive found the best prices at tigerdirect.com and they ship it right to your door. make sure the tiger ppl have the exact match and dont replace your order with more expensive replacements as some of these substitutions require voltages that your motherboard CAN NOT produce and will not work.. you also want to make sure to buy low density ram, it performs better, is a few bucks more than high density, but worth EVERY penny. E-bay is notorious for selling cheap high density ram on thier site.
If you stick to the list above, you shouldnt have any issues.
This should fixya up! please rate...

Compaq presario c714nr upgrade memory too 2gb laptop


http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01301275.pdf

Page 43 of this manual seems to have the best documentation on memory for this machine. I saw a 2GB max in another document and this shows the biggest module as 1GB. I would believe that infers a pair.
