Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Averatec A3300 does not like the 1GB memory module which I used to replace the supplied 512MB unit. The computer becomes unstable and invariably ''hangs''. The 1GB module used was the one recommended by the Kingston site M12864C250. Both Averatec and Kingston have been unhelpful but suggest I do a BIOS upgrade - where would I find one of these?

Sounds like the memory stick isn't compatable/wrong voltage or is faulty.A bios upgrade you can get at the Averatec website support but its unlikely it will help though.

Please provide instructions on how to install 512mb of memory on my averatec 3150h laptop computer. Year of laptop 1997. This is a upgrade to existing memory


Turn the computer off.
Unplug the AC adapter.
Remove the battery.
Flip the computer upside-down.
Look at the various "bay" covers.
Under one of them will be a slot for RAM.
Take a screwdriver, and remove the cover.
You might either find existing RAM (one stick or two),
or you might find an empty slot.

Now, the difficult part is purchasing RAM that will be compatible with your "antique" (1997) laptop. I highly advise that you take the computer, the battery, and the power-supply to a computer-store, so that they can sell you "compatible" memory -- the "wrong" memory won't fit, or won't work, or will only add 1/4 or 1/2 the amount of RAM present on the stick.

Yes you can. Your best is to use the largest and best ram in the number one slot. I would remove ALL the ram and start with the 2 gig in the first slot - then add others until you get the error message - remove that one and keep the rest.

Need to add RAM


Hello,

Located here is the actual specifications of your W3052.

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=W%20Series&model=W3052

The DDR means "double data rate", SDRAM is "synchronous dynamic random access memory" and DIMM is for "dual inline memory module". These are the way manufacturers describe the specific speed, type, and packaging of the memory. You need to get the correct combination for your computer in order for it to function properly. The PC2100 is NOT correct, at the very least it will slow your computer down, and possibly will not work at all. You should use PC2700.

If you wish to add another 512MB taking your computer to 1GB total, then you only need 1 module, a 512MB, like the one that came in the computer. Do not purchase a 1GB module expecting it to work properly with the one already there. It probably won't. If you want to max out your computer's memory taking it to 2GB, then you will need to purchase 2 each 1GB modules, and remove the existing 512MB module.

When you go to the computer store, you ask for either "one five-hundred-twelve megabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory module" or "two one-gigabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory modules".

The part numbers from, Kingston, one of the major add-on memory makers are shown here:

512MB = KVR333X64C25/512
1GB = KVR333X64C25/1G

I have a GA8ST800 board and I have have been running 256MB ram at 266MHz. I fitted a 512MB ram at 400 MHz. The two together would work fine, even though they were running at 266MHz. I bought two 512MB...


The RAM speed of the new chips is too fast. You need the slower either 266mhz or 333mhz RAM speed to make your system stable again. Hope this helps.

Sounds like the RAM is not compatible. Try another 1 GB chip from same manufacturer & see if that helps.
