Question about Itronix GoBook IX250 Notebook

Ram Question Hello, I had two 128 mb of pc 133 ram in my GoBook, I recently aqcuired a 256 mb stick of PC 133 ram and swapped out a stick of 128 MB for it, but the system only recognized the 256 stick now. Do I have to have equal amounts in both slots for it to work? Seeing as to this is an older computer I didn't think this would be neccesary, as it isn't a dual core processor. Any knowledge or information would be appreciated.

These machines have a MAX of 512MB, but it can only achieve that if two LOW DENSITY 256mb sticks are used. Preferably PC100, and not PC133. I'm typing this on a IX250 with a P3 1ghz (SL53S) and 512MB ram. Hope this helps.

Increase graphics from 96 to 128


If you have insralled the correct video driver and you cannot increase the VIDEO RAM then it is not possible to increase the bit color from 96 bit to 126 or 256 bit color.
The only way to have a higher bit color is to install a new graphics card that supports up to 256 bit color (this video card will have large cideo RAM).

Hello,

The motherboard has 128 MB memory (soldered on board). However there is still empty slot for further upgrade. You can install another 128 MB PC100 SDRAM memory to get maximum of 256 MB.

I would like to nwom how much of memory this laptop support


The Thinkpad is installed with 128 MB SDRAM is standard, and is expandable to 512 MB
There are two memory slots, to expand it to 512 Mb you need two 256 Mb RAM modules and throw away the 128 Mb RAM module, but if you don't throw away this module and you insert a 256 Mb RAM module in the 2nd memory slot then your total memory would be 384 Mb.

Doesn't detecting ram


The problem is either:
The ram is not compatible with your system
The ram is faulty
The motherboard is faulty
The power supply is faulty

I suggest that you try the following:
Blow the computer out with canned air, especially the ram slots
Try different ram.

What are the ram limits on a compaq presario 5000a. I put 256 ram in the compaq and it only reads 128. Why?


You can install up to 3 sticks of 512 mb of memory. Did you add a 256 stick to the already-existing 128? You need to put DDR266/PC2100 memory. To troubleshoot, remove the 128 stick and put your 256 in and see if it is recognized. You will know right away from the bios screen. Memory needs to be the same type.
