Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop

1 Answer

My Inspiron 1525 does not recognize the memory I added. It had 3GB, I removed the 1GB and added a 2GB. When it did not register the additional memory, I put the old one back in and it now does not recognize it either. I think when I put in the new one, when it booted up and said the memory configuration has changed and gave me some options, I chose the wrong one. Please help!

Once you change the ram, you have to boot to the system setup so that the BIOS can recognize the new module.
When inserting the ram module in the slot, it should be at a 30 degree angle to the system and inserted till the golden contacts can not be seen looking straight down at the slot. Then press the module down until the retention clips click. The top edge of the contacts should then be barely visible.
Once the RAM has been properly inserted, then boot to the system setup, exit then boot to windows

Where is the memory slots for the Panasonic CF-T8. I know about the one on the back where it the other slot?


According to Panasonic's Toughbook CFT8
owners manual there is only one slot where
you can add extra RAM. The other memory
is "non-removable" and probably soldered
directly to the motherboard.

I double checked on the Kingston RAM Website:
Bank Schema: 1GB Standard:
[1GB] (Non-Removable)
or

3GB Standard:
[1GB] (Non-Removable)
or

2GB Standard:
[2GB] (Non-Removable)
or

3GB Standard:
[2GB] (Non-Removable)
Sorry to disappoint you but that is how they
made the CFT8 Toughbook.

If it is any consolation, the CFC1 and CFC2 both have
two (2) slots on the underside of the unit. Not the CFT8.

Good Luck,

If you have the additonal memory in the system correctly, it should be recognized.
Attempt to boot the system with just the new stick in. If it boots you most likely have a motherboard issue. If it doesn't, it's just a bad stick of memory and I suggest just getting a new one.

assuming your running th correct memory modules(same clock speed and size) you ahould have more useable. switch the larger one out to the nexxt slot and see if that fixes it. if not then just use the 2 gb by itself. this is more than enough for windows 7

Compaq Presario Notebook V3000T I replaced the 2-256mb memory cards with 2-1g memory cards. System boots up but only reads 1024mb?


Thanks to Microsoft Knowledge Base for help with my answer:

First, find out what the maximum amount of memory is. This is generally listed by most of the manufacturers. This will let you know what upgrade potential the system has. Next, determine how the memory configuration is when you buy the system. For example, a laptop that has 2GB of memory can be configured as either a single 2GB module or two 1GB modules. The single memory module allows for better upgrade potential because by adding another module you are gaining more memory without sacrificing any current memory. Upgrading the two module situation with a 2GB upgrade would result in the loss of one 1GB module and a memory total of 3GB.

Removed 1gb memeory and installed 2gb but only 2gb recognized


You may need to go to your manufacturer's website for toshiba, and flash your bios with the latest flash for this.

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!!

Sony Vaio computer not recognizing added RAM


First, do you have a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. Unless you have the latter, you will only see 3GB maximum.
Second, did you look at the Sony specs (you didn't say what model you have)? Chances are your Sony maxes out at 2GB.

SYSTEM DOESN'T RECOGNIZE NEW MEMORY MODULE


Memory modules must be the correct type and speed, and be within the specifications for the laptop. Just because it fits in the slot doesn't mean it will work.

The Dell inspiron B130 has 2 slots. Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. if you tried to insert a 2GB module, it will not work.

If the module is within these parameters, remove and re-seat the memory, and try swapping the modules from one slot to the other. It may be a bad slot.
