I insert another ram memory at the back portion of my unit, when i turn on the unit...no power! but when i remove the one i inserted, there is power, what is the problem, pls help me, thanks


The second RAM module you inserted is incompatible with the other RAM module.
I suggest you use the same RAM manufacturer as the first RAM module, make sure the RAM speed is the same as the first RAM module.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6700 special/limited edition. I start it up, and all lights turn on and i can hear the computer is on. But the screen is black. And then I hear a beeping sound three times. First one...


Sounds like you have a memory problem. Either a RAM module is defective & needs to be replaced, or the slot where the RAM module goes into is not making good contact between the motherboard & the memory module, & needs to be cleaned.

Try first cleaning the RAM module slot with a non-oily contact cleaner. Leave it to dry for few minutes then install the RAM module & test if the computer will turn on. If it does not, replace the RAM module with a working one & test again.

When memory check starts, get a + then hangs


Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, observe Anti-Static precautions, then remove the ram memory module/s.

(Slang for ram memory module, is ram memory 'stick')

Use a pencil eraser, and clean the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram memory module.

Just rub the eraser on the contact pins.
(If the eraser on the end of the pencil is attached by a metal sleeve, refrain from letting the metal sleeve touch the contact pin/s)

When handling the ram memory module, refrain from touching the contact pins on the bottom.
You can handle the ram memory module anywhere else, as the body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Lay the module on a wood table, or other non-Static surface when cleaning.
Example of a DDR Sdram ram memory module as used in a Pavilion 523n,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

Use air to remove the eraser dust.
(You can use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth is sufficient)

Reinsert the ram memory module/s. Close the computer case, plug back into power. Wait 1 minute, turn the computer on.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Working on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case (Unpainted surface) to relieve your body of Static.

Should you get up, and walk away in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return Touch the metal frame again ]

Opening your computer case.
Looking at the Back of the computer, there are two screws on the far right edge.
One above, one below.

Remove the two screws, slide the side panel back about 1 inch, tilt the side cover top to the outside, remove the side cover. (If memory serves)

Should you need guidance in removing, and reinstalling a ram memory module, hit me up in a Comment.

Have 512MB RAM. Was told to max it out because the machine is extremely slow. Has two slots with 256MB. Can I put two 512MB memory modules in those slot to increase 1G or RAM?


yes, after looking up your laptop on hp's website, I have determined the kind of memory you need; (assuming your computer is the one you put in the question, HP Pavilion ze4805us Notebook PC)

you need 2x 512 mb, 200-pin, DDR 266 memory

I looked and found some Corsair (highly respected company in computer memory) memory, for 22.99 for each DIMM (you'll need to buy 2); see link below.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145482&cm_re=ddr_sdram-_-20-145-482-_-Product

If you have any more questions, please let me know!

Thanks,
Mike

Hi! How can I increase the RAM on my Aspire T310? Can I do it myself? Thanks.


Yes, you can definitely do this yourself. Upgrading RAM is one thing that repair places make much money; however, it takes a matter of seconds to complete.

Your Acer Aspire T310 has two memory slots on the motherboard. Each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB each for a total of 2GB RAM. You should see a great improvement in performance.

To save on a long tutorial, I have included a video link. The type of RAM you need can be found at the following link. Kingston is another manufacturer you could check into also.

Please remember to unplug all cords from your computer and be in a static free environment before upgrading your memory. Good Luck!

I have 4 banks of ram slots. Can I keep the Bank1 256k Bank2 256k. Can I put 1G into bank3.


It is strongly recommended that you install RAM in matched pairs. So if you add a 1GB module in bank 3 then you should add 1GB in bank 4
But you can add just the one module and it should work, but not at optimal speed.

Its hp pavilion dv 2000 notebook i on power no display but i hear 3 beep sound only how to service


The 3 beep POST code error means there is a problem with the memory, could be faulty or just needs reseating.
Reseat the RAM modules and if this doesn't work then remove the memory module/s and take them to your friendly computer shop to test them.

My computer cant start up and is making a beeping noise


Most likely a ram problem. Sometimes reseating the memory will fix the problem.

Remove and reseat the RAM On most notebook PCs, removing and reinserting the memory is a simple step and does not require advanced technical knowledge of the computer. HP recommends reseating the memory module before arranging for warranty service repair. If you are not confident following the steps for removing and replacing the memory module in this document, contact an HP support specialist for assistance.
NOTE: If someone other than HP installs or upgrades the RAM, any damage caused by the RAM and/or by the person when trying to install or upgrade the RAM is excluded from coverage under the product warranty. The customer assumes all risk and liability for damages for any such installation or upgrade.Some HP notebooks may have a secondary memory module located under the keyboard. For removal and replacement instructions pertaining to the second memory module contact an HP support specialist for assistance. WARNING: This product contains components that are easily damaged by Electrostatic Discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, set the notebook on a grounded surface that dissipates any static charge, and wear an ESD wrist strap that is connected to a grounded surface, like the metal frame of a PC. Use the following steps to remove and replace the memory modules. These steps should be repeated for each memory module installed in your notebook. Step 1 - Remove the battery
  1. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
  2. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.
Step 2 - Remove the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Use your finger or a flat head screw driver to lift the inside edge of the memory module and remove it.
    NOTE: When handling a memory board, use care to prevent touching the memory chips on the board. Touching the memory chips could damage or destroy the memory.
  4. Push both tabs outward simultaneously to release the memory module.
  5. Grasp the memory module by the edges and pull gently to remove it.
  6. After removing one module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
Step 3 - Reseat the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Locate the alignment slot on the memory module and align it to the empty board receptacle.
  4. Grasp the memory module by the edge and push gently to install it.
    NOTE: When handling a memory board, use care to prevent touching the memory chips on the board. Touching the memory chips could damage or destroy the memory.
  5. Press the expansion memory board down to latch the tabs.
  6. After replacing the module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
After the memory is reseated, connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook.

INSTALL RAM UPGRADE, HP PAVILION, 8756C


You will need to purchase SDRAM (which is the RAM / Interface Type)

and installation is quite simple

Use the following steps to insert a memory module into an empty socket:

The memory configuration of channel A (the first two sockets) and channel B (the second two sockets) must be identical.

Align the memory module so the small notches on the lower edge line up with the raised marks in the socket.

  2. Push straight down on top ends of the memory module until the memory module is fully seated in the socket. The retaining clips on the ends of the socket lock into place when properly seated.
