To get a correct answer to this go to www.crucial.com and put the model of each computer in the search box and take note of the memory type, including pin number and frequency range. This way you can compare the memory that is specified for the models you provide.

I have the HP Pavilion a1330n computer, I just installed 4G of memory (4 X1G) to replace my previous 1G (2 X 512). The memory specs are correct but every morning the computer has a black screen and I have...


NO OS stated, Blues screens you mean the BSOD with the halt? statement on screen? i bet yes. (with words on blue screen)
words matter.....
Bought new memory or old?
no, (to supposed) yes, to , back to beginning done wrong or luck bad.
so put back the old RAM, does that work.?
or use just 1 stick of old ram. ? 1 by 1.
then repeat, new ram 1by1,
see? one stick is bad, if it all ran perfectly before you touched ram.
buying RAM for such and old PC is not easy.
step1:
first ASK HP, you asked now at yahoo, why here, and not HP>?
but HP long long ago retired the A series.
per HP pages. here
https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products
personally I do go the used PC store and buy $20 PC vastly newer.
sure would, but lets follow the rules for yours, step by step
step 2, (1 was hp , no support)
next is to lean what Memory was uses and what the processor spec is on the same,
the mobo is 2005 era. (as old as) 12 years ago...
its not Intel, its Athlon 64 (S) 3800+ 2.4 GHz
if it was intel , the intel chip drives the memory with its MMC
its not.
ASUS made this mobo by HP contract.A8AE-LE
hp name is: AmberineM-GL6E
max mem
4 GB* (4 x 1 GB) requires the replacement of the installed 512 MB DIMMs
PC-3200 MB/sec , speed ( not slower !) faster ok.
184 pin, DDR SDRAM
Dual-channel memory architecture
4 x 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets support unbuffered non-ECC 4 GB 400/300 MHZ DDR memory modules

page 7 is sparse in your manual.
https://www.manualslib.com/manual/721818/Asus-A8ae-Le.html?page=7#manual


the Athalon 64 has an ON DIE mmc, memory controller
this sets the base limits of all possible memory.
the memory speed is not by FSB, speeds
simpler terms, the memory is always running at a set fraction of the CPU speed
this chip has the advantage for running , cleaner DDR signals.
that other FSB designs.
what that means , to the user more memory choices.


I see this maker selling memory , a top maker,
http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/HP-Compaq/pavilion-a1330n-series

test the sticks all 1 by 1,,, one good way to test it is run fast games.

DDR stick density rules and numbers and types of memory pre stick and pre side can cause problems on old processors.
I could not find the Athalon 64 rules on this, AMD can tell you at there site but im too lazy to look it up..
best is to let Crucial or Kingston guy you , here. for SURE>

I put new pc 133 ram into my compaq 5868 computer. It had 512 meg and I upgraded to 1 gig. But when I installed the new ram, The computer locks up. It starts the Memory test on start up, but locks up...


Sorry but I think that may be a bit much memory for that motherboard as described at the following links:

http://www.memorystock.com/memory/CompaqPresario5868.html

http://www.memoryupgradecompany.com/memory/CompaqPresario5868MemoryUpgrade.html

But I may have looked up the wrong PC, so the easiest way is put the old ram back in, get it running, then go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER option.

It will tell you exactly how much RAM you have currently, what type it is, and exactly how much more you can put into it. It's free and real handy and quick.

Good luck and please post back if this helps at all.

Removed 256 meg card, installed ddr2 1gig card. Computer would not start.


Old system!
Up to 2GB DDR are fine, but you tried DDR2, which it can't handle. Get the right kind of memory (just DDR, not DDR2 or DDR3) and see if they don't get along better.

I want to now which ram is used for dell latitude 640, latitude 520, latitude 430, latitude 420 and inspiron 2200 is it ddr2 or ddr1 and max capicity for upgrade


Here are the max memory and speeds:
Lat C640 is Max 512M per stick DDR-266 (PC2100) or DDR333 ( PC2700 ) for a total of 1024 Meg

Lat D520 is either 2 or 4 Meg total. DDR2-667 ( PC2-5300 )
Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.Maximum memory for systems with the Intel 945GM chipset is 4096MB, maximum memory with the Intel 940GML chipset is 2048MB
Lat D430 has only slot with a Max of 1 Meg. You can use DDR2-667 (PC2-5300)  or DDR2-533 (PC2-4200)

Lat D420 is a max of  1.5G    . Use 1GB DDR2-533 (PC2-4200)

Inspiron 2200 is one slot with a max of 1280 Meg. recomended is 1GB DDR-333 (PC2700)

Here is a link to find almost any memory you need:
http://www.crucial.com/index.aspx

NOTE:
When mixed speeds in the same PC, the memory will run at the slowest speed installed or the highest speed allowed by your system, whichever is slower.

Good Luck

I removed the old memory and installed 4 1GB cards and the computer doesn't work? Help.


Adding new memory can be tricky. First the new memory has to be compatible with the motherboard.
By that I mean, you need to know how much memory the motherboard can max out at.Can it take only 2 GB or 4GB etc. And it has to be a match to what memory speed your motherboard can handle. If your motherboard takes DDR than you must put DDR in, if it takes DDR2 than you must put DDR2 in. Look at the old memory, and try to match all the numbers you find on it. Than look up the memory specs for the motherboard to find out how much it can take.
Any computer will not operate corecctly if the memory is the wrong kind, or installed wrong.

Computer wont boot after memory upgrade


when working on computers you have to be carefull to ground your self before touching the inside of them. when installing memory you dont need to unpluge everythinf just the main power cord on the back of it.the blinking green light means you have something no pluged in right,double check everything you unpluged make sure it back in the right areas.on memory the slots are mark 1,2,3,4
make sure if the memory is diffrent in speeds the lagger ons go first.the first to slots normally have to be the same speed and size ram.if that does not work let me know i can look into it for you.
