Take it back out and make sure you got it the right way around there are gooves in the middle of the card to ensure it goes the right way round. You have to press firmly down until it clicks into place (not to hard) Make usre you have unpluged your computer when you are doing this and touch somewhere on the metal part of the case to ground you before touching it. IF that doesn't work then you may have to take it to a technichian at your local Staples or soemthing most are good at checking it out for you.

I hope you had unplugged the computer and removed the battery as well.

Remove them, and take out the ram from the computer, make sure they are clean, do not use water, or clean them, you can use the eraser end of a pencil to clean the contacts on the memory modules.

Place them back in and make sure they are in the right away, only handle them from the sides.

If the problem still remains, unplug and remove battery again, (might aswell keep the battery removed untill the issue is solved.)

Remove both ram modules from the laptop.

Start up the laptop with no ram at all, it may beep or complain, or it may do noting, unplug after 1 minute.

Plug in the other memory card, plug the machine to power, try starting up, if it works, turn it off and place in the other aswell, turn on and see if the machine works, if it does, problem solved. If it does not work.

Remove both ram modules, try the other memory on both slots and try starting up each time, remember to unplug power every time.

If the problem remains then do the same with the other memory module try it on both slots.

If the machine still doesn't work something is wrong, possibly you worked inside the laptop while it had power or it was plugged in or the memory was damaged by static electricty, very uncommon, but I don't see any other reason at this point.

Take it to a local professional for a checkup if the issue still remains.

Remove the battery and AC power, take the RAM back out of the slot, clean the brass pins on the RAM and any dust that maybe on the slots.

Re-seat the RAM in the original slot you took it from making sure that the RAM clips into place properly.

Take the RAM card out altogether and boot the machine to see if it is OK. You should get a RAM error. If it does start to boot then jump into BIOS setup and check everything. Then turn off the book and reinsert the RAM and make sure it clicks into place correctly. Turn on the machine again and it should alls be OK. If not then its repair shop time.

YES. The slots are for different kinds of memory. ONLY use the 2 new cards and insert them into the SAME colour slots. You should NOT mix memory types. Forget the old modules.

I have Display problem in vt 8233a motherboard

Problem often occurs on a computer display, usually the problem as a hardware malfunction.
way to identifying it is to perform tests on computer hardware (troubleshooting)
> Sweep ram slot with a small brush or small paint brush is not used (new)
> After cleaning the ram slot, use the eraser to clean the copper surface on the ram you are.
> When you're done, plug the ram in the slot. (If you have a new ram to do the troubleshooting is better)
> Reattach the power source on your computer and then switch on your computer.
> Still not working?
> If you use the display card, remove the display card and do the same as you did on your ram and ram slots.
(If you're not using the display card, the better you get the display card to make the process of troubleshooting)
>Turn on your computer.
(If your computer is still experiencing the same problem though has to do the troubleshooting on the display card)
> Get at / ATX new power supply to do troubleshooting, (damage to the power supply will also cause the computer not display
>Turn on your computer.
If the computer still can not function normally means that you have the problem still appears,This requires you to perform more detailed troubleshooting process.
Firstly, you need to provide a motherboard and processor is still working (new) to do this process.If you already have all the equipment, you can start to make the process of troubleshooting your hardware one by one.I believe there is enough equipment for you to perform troubleshooting, problem you will be able to identify you and you will be able to solve by itself.
Hope this can help solve your problem.
thank you

Toshiba satellite a65-s126. need to add ram. how to replace the memory module. please help. it is so very slow.

If your laptop is slow then it is not necessary for you to increase you system RAM. Try the following steps Kindly comment if these steps do not work. I shall lwt you know how to install another RAM module.

1) Open internet explorer -> Tools-> Internet options ->General -> Browsing History -> Delete -> Check all boxes -> Delete. (IE 8, The process is quite similar in other browsers as well)

2)For XP
Start-> Run-> type temp-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)

For vista
Start-> Start Search-> type temp-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)

3) For XP
Start-> Run -> type %temp%-> Ok-> Select all -> (shift+delete)

For Vista
Start-> Start Search-> type %temp%-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)

4) Turn off laptop, Remove battery , Remove AC adapter, Press power button for 2 minutes. Put both back on. Turn on laptop.

5) Run virus scan and check for malware and other virus related issues. If anything is found delete the infected files.

For XP
Go to Control Panel-> Add and remove programs-> Remove all unnecessary softwares

For Vista
Go to Control Panel-> programs-> Installed Progams->Remove all unnecessary softwares

For XP
Run-> msconfig-> Startup->Disable all

For Vista
Start search -> msconfig -> Startup -> Disable all

Check for the system RAM. If your laptop has 2 memory cards installed. One might have failed. So try to remove it and fix it back again and check.

Upgraded RAM, added USB port card at rear panel ... now no worko

Try reseating the RAM. If the computer won't even post it's probably a RAM problem. I worked on a machine about a year ago that took almost two days to get the RAM to seat properly. It was doing the same thing worked when it wanted to. I finally used the end of my BIC lighter to beat it in. You can try to reinstall the old RAM to see if the RAM is the problem or try installing it one stick at a time.

Windows xp sp3 maximum amount of memory

Of course it can be done, your computer can take up to 2BG of ram (memory) and the slots are located inside the computer tower like this >>>>>

Your motherboard will have 2 slots like in the picture and will take 2 x 1BG (1GB in each slot), just make sure you buy the correct speed and type memory so it's a good idea to take your memory with you when you buy is so there is no mistakes.

Good luck

Put new vid card in pc it will boot but no pic put another vid card in it boots just fine

What kind of fan do you have installed? Cpu wise? it sounds like your cpu is overheating when your playing games. Due to high graphics. Try getting a better cooling system to stop the shutdowns. 
With the ram, is it because your Gpu shares some of the ram? 
This is common with chipsets and some GPUs. 

Sorry or posting twice, im having some issues of my own here ;)
