are the modules of the same brand and type
make sure the sockets and ram modules are dust and corrosion free and are securely seated

you might swap each module over then reboot one might be faulty

    Want to upgrade memory to 2 GB. Desktop will not post up with 2x1GB cards. Every 2-3 seconds it makes a sound/tone. The fans would turn on but there is no signal to the monitor. However, it will post up...


    There is no reset just because you added memory.

    If you have 2- 1GB sticks, try both , one at a time.

    Your system spec's and manual tell nothing which dimm banks are suppose to be used , and if you can install 2-1GB sticks,
    all it says is it can handle 2GB.

    Now it says 512MB, sticks, this could mean you can only use 4-512MB sticks to get too 2GB,.

    Now it does not tell which dimms are used if you have 2-1GB sticks,

    You have 4 slots, the first two and the second two, most times, you either use the second bank of each pair, or the first slot of each pair,
    but as I said, your system does not say.

    So you can try both ways and see if one of them work.

    Sorry I can't be of more help,but you system has a poor manual
    on memory placement.

    Can the memory be upgraded (increased) from the basic (factory installed) 512mb on the Sony PCV-W300G?


    Hi there.
    As far as i know you can upgrade the RAM to 2GB, 2x1GB 184pin PC2100 DDR DIMM Desktop RAM modules is what it can take.


    Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

    Processor Upgrade For An IBM Netvista 8307-73G...


    If the physical size, and numper of pins is the same as your current processor, you can most definately upgrade. Hyper threading is enabled through the bios, but as far as I know it's not neccesary.
    Swapping out processors is fairly easy, and when you buy a new one, it should come with extensive instructions and pictures showing you exactly how to do it. Good luck!

    I need to know how much memory I can add to my PC?


    Your machine's max memory is 2GB. It takes several flavors of ram so here is a link that lists the types of memory you can use in your machine.

    Note: I don't necessarily endorse or recommend the seller's link I've included, it's simply for illustrative purposes.

    I have same problem as ninja9er


    hi,

    First try Using one at a time, since its not advisable to use memory chips with variable bus speeds i.e (333 & 266).
    Since IBM Computer are little complicated i would suggest your to call the customer care or Tech support for assistance in buying a Memory module. In that way you can cross check the memory module you have bought is compatible with the computer.

    Kindly give a feed back to Improve my statistics and to see If it was helpful for you...

    Thanks and Regards
