Check if the ram you bought is compatible with that of the existing
in your Akai Mpc. The ram strip comes with a clock speed number stamp into it. It must be the same, otherwise it will not function. Or
it must be defective. On my own practice, I bring my PC to the com-
puter store, and let them activate the additional ram. In that manner
I will be assured of the compatibility and integrity of the ram added.
Do this, I'm sure you will be satisfied with the result. E-mail for result.

I upgraded my laptop's (hp compact cq40-336 tu) RAM from 1 GB to 3BG. I bought a 2GB RAM w/ Kinsengton model from our local store. TO find out the said RAM is not working properly. How can I fix this...

This model laptop requires DDR RAM. Sometimes different brand of RAM do not work together or not the memory upgrade was not compatible with the laptop.
To check the amount of installed memory, go into the BIOS configuration to view the RAM.
The other way is to open Control Panel and click on System, this will also show the total RAM installed.

Toshiba Satellite A215-S7407 ram upgrade

Try to disconnect the new ram you just bought one at the time to see which one is defective. Also, 32 bit operating systems won't detect 4 Gb or ram, but they will show 3 Gb (even though they will use all 4 Gb). To resolve this issue, make sure that if you are using windows Vista to download the latest service pack 1.

Mpc1000 and 128mb ram

is it a genuine 128 akai card or another brand? If it's non-genuine you might have the wrong chip layout. look for a 256mb PL3 P133 144pin sodimm(4x64). Picked mine up at a computer recycler for US$20 and it works a treat. Hope it helps!

Replacing the slot on your machine will no only include soldering, but you're talking about soldering AT THE VERY LEAST 168 connections. When a slot goes bad, it is not deamed a "repairable" situation. The best solution, unfortunately, is to replace the motherboard and salvage the processor, ram, etc.

Acer Aspire 5584WXMI Upgraded Ram

All ram is not created equal.

You should check on the Laptops manufacturer website support pages. They should have a list of know ram manufacturers that have been tested with your laptop.

Check in the manual to see if the ram may have to be installed in pairs.

Also, be sure the new ram is seated properly in the slot.

The ram may not be fully compatible with your laptop.
