Unable to upgrade RAM......

Hi all....

I have a pc in my office when I tried to upgrade the RAM (256 MBDDR II RAM exists) with 512 MB DDR II RAM in the other slot, the system booted with a error stating "Memory could not be initialized and Channel 'A' is not compatible with Channel 'B'' though my RAM size has incremented I used to see the same condition before upgrading (pc with intel PIII processor with 2.8Ghz) what could be done to get the best optimized performance out of that...?


Regards,
Hari

    It works!! and as of now the pc is being inserted with 512 and i want this 256 to be placed in the other slot. What might be the cause of this problem?

    1 memory stick is 256 MB DDR II type and incremented it with 512 MB DDR II type in the other slot provided.

    What happens if you leave just the 512 installed and take out the 256?

    Are they both the same speed memory?

Sounds like they are 2 significantly different speed memory sticks. Normally, the faster of the two sticks will "clock down" to match the slower stick.

Without knowing the motherboard and memory stick specifications, it's hard to tell, but it's most likely a speed issue.

    I think the confusion here is the memory speed itself.

    For instance, one stick may be PC2-4200 (DDR2-533) and the other is PC2-3200 (DDR2-400), etc.

    DDR2 only means the "type" of memory, not the actual speed.

    The speed of the memory "should" be on the labels, or stamped on the memory stick somewhere.

What is the maximum memory capacity for the MX6027 model ?


Hello Marc,

The maximum is 1 GB. Standard, it comes installed with 256 MB but you upgrade with additional 256 MB or 512 MB memory modules. The modules you are looking for are:

256 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC
512 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC

There are lots of places on the web to find decent prices for this memory. I have included a few below.

http://www.pcmemorystore.com/Gateway-M_Series_Notebooks-MX6027-ram.htm

http://www.computermemoryoutlet.com/Gateway-M_Series_Notebooks-MX6030-memory.htm

This document includes instructions for replacing the memory. It's a simple straightforward process.

What kind DDr memeory should i look for on my old P3 Direct desktop?


It depends on how old it is. it is has 256 mb in each slot then it probably could upgrade to 512 mb in each slot, if it has 512mb in each slot it probably could upgrade to a gig. if it only has SD ram in it though, you can't upgrade to DDR.

Which memory ram for amilo pro v7010


http://www.fujitsu-siemens.ru/Resources/123/2080773523.pdf

Here's a link to the Data Sheet with the specifications to that Laptop in Adobe Reader format.

Looks like your Laptop came with either 256 or 512 MB of DDR SDRAM and it is upgradable to 2 GB of DDR SDRAM.

You can check to see exactly how much RAM your computer came with by going to Control Panel, double-click System and it should tell you how much RAM you currently have in the System Properties box.

The motherboard has 2 slots for RAM, you you could add a second 256 MB or a second 512 MB stick of RAM. Or if you wanted to upgrade to the 2GB of maximum RAM this computer handles, then you can take out the RAM chip(s) that is installed and install two 1G DDR SDRAM.

Upgrading acer laptop RAM


Hi,
You Can Actually Upgrade This To 2 Gig Memory.
Each Slot Will Take 1 A Gig Strip.
I,d suggest Buying another 256 mb Strip, To Put Into Slot 2.
Or Buy a 512mb ( Half Gig ) Which Will Give you 750mb With your Existing Strip Already In There. ** Recommend 1 Gigabyte Max** 2 gig of Ram in This Baby Would Probably Start Glowing.
You Can Buy DDR/266/333 In 256/512/1 Gig Strips. These Are Commonly Known As SD-RAM-Modules.

Unable to install Windows xp


If you can afford it i'd look at trying another stick of 256 or a new 512 stick, XP doesn't really like anything under 512 and it pretty much won't run at all with 128, so if you can get it cheaply try that first if that doesn't fix it let me know
