    A while ago I bought 2x1GB of 400Hmz 3200 ram from my 760GXK8MC all it did was bleep at me - so i stuck with the 512MB that I'd been running with untill then, I threw the ram in a draw and put it down to being ripped off by ebay. I've just bought 100% compatable ram for this mobo 2x1GB and it dose exactly the same as the earler ram I bought - just sits there and bleeps at me.

Hello i would like advice with my pc upgrade.This pc was assembled in 2006 and got Foxconn 760GXK8MC-RS Motherboard skt 754 1600 FSB AGP SATA RAID 6 CH. audio LAN micro ATX.There is AMD Sempron 3000+ 64Bit...

Probably have to stick with SATA II for HDD but you could probably use more space! You didn't say what you use your computer for but ... What you really need is much more RAM 'course it will be a LOT more expensive now than even a few months ago...Buy the same RAM as you currently have but if you are using a 64bit operating system use at least two 4GB sticks two 8GB sticks better still...

I m trying to upgrade my HP compaq nc6320 RAM MEMORY from 1GB to 4GB, Do i need BIOS upgrade if yes from were i can find the drivers and how can i do it? thanx i am gone wait for respond......


As far as I know, the machine supports 4GB of ram, so you purchase the ram modules from a pc parts dealer and install them inside the machine, removing the existing ram, there are 2 slots, so you need 2, 2GB cards.

You do not require any drivers or bios update.

Windows will need to be upgraded to 64Bit version if you wish to use the full capacity. as normal windows is limited to 3-3.75GB

Further questions? let me know.

    Upgrade ram

    In order to upgrade the ram of your desktop. First you have to check the ram specifications. If wrong specifications the desktop will not work. To check you have to remove the ram from your desktop by removing the screws behind your desktop. Open the lid and you will see the contents of your desktop. Besides of your processor, there is ram installed. Unclip it. Then bring that ram to the computer shops. Purchase a ram higher than the ram installed in your desktop. Afterwards, install the new ram to your desktop. Good luck.

    What kind of motherboard is in my acer aspire AST 180-UA381B- It has 4 RAM slots and when i tried to add the 3rd it whent nuts with beeps

    The motherboard for the Acer Aspire t180-UA381B desktop computer, is supposed to be based on the Foxconn AM2 MCP61S series of motherboards.

    Based on one of these two with some small modifications,

    (You can click on Specifications for each motherboard, then click on the photo of the motherboard to enlarge.
    After clicking it takes a second, then a small window comes up on the left. Click on the Maximize icon. { Icon to the left of the Red X)

    There are Four ram memory slots.

    2 of the ram memory slots make up one Channel.
    The other 2 ram memory slots make up the other Channel.

    When you use ram memory that has the SAME specifications, in the SAME channel, you are using the ram memory in Dual Channel.

    [ And I mean the SAME.
    Sometimes this means from the same manufacturer.

    Same type, same frequency rate, {'Speed'}, same density, same chip configuration, same ram timings, same voltage, Unbuffered, and Non-ECC ]

    When you install ram memory in a Dual Channel configuration, the two ram memory modules ('Sticks'), 'piggyback' off of each other.
    They essentially team up on the task.

    In the past this was thought to increase ram memory 'power' up to 30 percent.

    Extensive testing has proven this to be a fallacy.
    2 to 3 percent is more accurate.

    The Maximum Total Amount for the motherboard, (Relying, if it does indeed follow the specs of the Foxconn motherboards linked above), is 4GB.

    [ According to Acer Support, the above criteria follows suit, ]

    EACH ram slot's Maximum Amount is 1GB.

    If, perse, you have 1GB in each of the first 2 ram slots that are closest to the Processor, (Same channel. Same color), and are trying to install a ram memory module of 2 GB in the 3rd slot, this isn't going to work.

    If you are trying to install a ram memory module that is of a different frequency rate ('Speed'), it may also not work.

    Example: DDR2 Sdram at 667Mhz, (PC2-5300), and DDR2 Sdram at 1066MHz, (PC2-8500)

    Further example:
    You have 2 sticks of PC2-5300 at a 1GB amount in Slots 1 and 2.
    You try to install a stick of PC2-6400, or PC2-8500 of 1GB in Slot 3.

    Not happening.

    BIOS will try to clock down the faster ram memory to the slower ram memory that is installed.
    One step up, (PC2-5300 to PC2-6400 for example), may work.

    Two steps up will not.
    (Example PC2-5300 to PC2-8500)

    It also depends on what Processor you have installed.
    Ram memory typically operates at half of the FSB frequency rate, that the Processor's FSB does.

    According to Acer Support, an AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor, or an AMD Athlon 64 processor, or an AMD Sempron processor can be installed.

    I suggest using CPU-Z from, and find out the exact specs of the hardware inside your computer. (It's free, although they do accept donations}

    As stated, Crucial has a good system scan analyzer, but has been found to be unreliable, or doesn't work in some circumstances.

    You also need to know the specifications of the ram memory you are installing.

    Comparing stock performance ram memory, to high performance ram memory.

    Some of the high performance ram memory uses a higher voltage, for one.
    For two the ram timings are different.
    For three the density of the DRAM chips are different.
    For four the Chip Configuration is different.

    Just some of the parameters that can vary.

    Stock voltage for DDR2 Sdram set by JEDEC at 1.8 Volts.
    This is what is set as a default voltage in your computer, for your ram memory.
    Use high performance ram memory that may use 2.1 volts, and there's going to be a problem.

    Also if you purchased this ram memory from Ebay, good luck.

    Need to know WHAT ram memory you have installed in Slot 1 and 2.
    Give me any numbers off of the ram memory module that you see, and if there is a manufacturer name.

    Same with the ram memory module you are trying to install.
    Also would like to know if the two Foxconn mobos, (MOtherBOard), that I linked above, resemble yours.

    Memory upgrade

    Hi Dave,
    Foxconn 945G7MA-8KS2
    Memory (Page 10 in user manual).
    This motherboard includes four 240-pin slots with 1.8 V for DDR2. These slots support 256 Mb, 512 Mb and 1 Gb DDR2 technologies for x8 and x16 devices, and support maximum memory bandwidth of 8.5GB/s using DDR2 533 memory,
    10.7GB/s using DDR2 667 in Dual-Channel interleaved mode, You must install at least one memory bank to ensure normal operation.
    Need you're manual? Click on the link below.

    Foxconn 945G7MA-8KS2 motherboard main page link.

    To upgrade with 1GB. This includes S/H. (Free S/H).

    TigerDirect less S/H. (S/H not included).

    I did find others for less on the surface. Untill you go to check out & get slammed for shipping (ground), falls between $4.99 to $9.99. I use Corsair myself. Never had a problem.

    Have more questions, feel free to ask.

    Ram upgrade

    Step 5: Remove a memory or continuity module Continuity modules do not contain memory, but are placeholders to close the memory circuit. Use the following steps to remove a memory or continuity module:
    1. Pull out, and then press down on the holding clips that retain the memory modules. The memory modules should rise up slightly out the socket. Figure 5: Opening memory module tabs c00571682.gif
    2. Pull out the memory or continuity module (for RIMMs) and place it in a static-safe container.
    Step 6: Add a memory module Use the following steps to insert a memory module into an empty socket:
    1. If RIMMs are being used, keep the following items in mind when purchasing and installing modules:
      • The memory configuration of channel A (the first two sockets) and channel B (the second two sockets) must be identical.
      • Continuity RIMMs must fill any open memory sockets.
      • When a continuity RIMM is required, it should be installed into the second socket.
    2. Align the memory module so the small notches on the lower edge line up with the raised marks in the socket. Figure 6: Memory module installation c00571683.gif 1 - DIMM (notches farther apart) 2 - RIMM (notches close together)

    Hi, with my own Foxconn mobo [661FX7MI] I had to run the installation disk that came with the motherboard and reinstall the AGP driver. Then run the AGP card driver [ATI]  disk.
