How do I add 8 GB RAM to MY 1 GB RAM Gateway 834GM system?


Sorry but your system will only upgrade to 2 gig of RAM
http://panam.gateway.com/s/PC/R/5293/5293sp3.shtml
but where your current memory is installed there are two locking levers on each socket one on top one on bottom press on those to release the memory and remove the current memory stick, now when installing the new memory make sure the little notch on the memory stick lines up with the one on the memory socket when your sure its correct just firmly press the new memory stick into the socket the two llever locks should lock automatically if not you can do it manually, take care not to put to much pressure on the memory stick. hope this helps

Installing new motherboard, processor, mem, and video adapter. Powers on but no post.


If the beep is a very high pitched tone, turn off the computer. Your CPU is overheating. The thermal paste may not be spread correctly on the CPU or the heat sink isn't properly installed.

Otherwise, it's probably a memory error. This machine takes 2 GB of memory as 2 single GB memory sticks. Try booting the machine with only one DIMM installed. Try each stick individually before getting replacement memory.

I hope this helps.

Installed 2 GB of Ram (both 3200 1 GB chips). PC would not boot coorectly with 2 GB installed (errors galore). However PC runs fine with only one 1GB installed. Running XP ?


Both ram sticks must be identical to work together. A different manufacturer of one can cause all kinds of problems. Did you go to 'setup' to make sure the machine recognized the second stick? The cure is likely to be purchasing another stick identical to the other new stick. Hope this helps!

I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

Motherboard for compaq pcsr5109uk have upgraded to 1,5 GB this adding a 1 GB ram since doing this pc will not boot up,pc has said that the mother board has died this has only started since new ram have...


From what you have stated, the original ram memory was two sticks of 512MB.
It's PC2-5300
(DDR2 Sdram at 667MegaHertz)

When installing ram memory, and installing two sticks with one stick being larger, the larger stick of ram memory is installed in Slot 1.

This is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
(The Processor reads Slot 1 first)
On the motherboard it has DIMM 1 printed next to Slot 1.

The 1GB stick should go into Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and the 512MB stick should go into Slot 2 (DIMM 2)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01077654&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3457899

Scroll down for the motherboard illustration, and photo.

Won't boot up with the original ram memory installed again?
1) What type, and size of 1GB ram memory did you install?

2) What ram memory slot did you install it in?

3) Did you follow anti-static precautions BEFORE you put your hands inside your computer, and BEFORE you took that ram memory stick out of it's protective anti-static bag?

[Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

You may not even see it, or feel it.
Poof!
No computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame to relieve your body of Static.

{A couch, bed, or directly on a carpet floor are HIGH areas of Static]

Before you answer my questions try this;

If the two sticks of 512MB PC2-5300 are still installed, follow anti-static precautions, and remove them.

Take a pencil eraser, and clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of each ram module. (Stick)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

(The above example is DDR Sdram, not DDR2 Sdram. I posted the link so that the gold plated contacts are clearly shown.

DDR Sdram has 184 contact pins.
92 on each side.
DDR2 Sdram has 240 contact pins.
120 on each side)

Remove the eraser dust with air. Use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth.

Reinstall the ram memory modules.

Computer unplugged from power, press the Power On button in.
Hold the button in for a count of Five seconds.
(Count 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory settings.

Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on.

I await your findings, and answers to my questions.

Purchased two sticks of 1 G memory, want to upgrad...


Assuming you purchased the correct memory and you have two open memory slots it is very easy. Just open the computer case and look on the mother board for memory cards that look like the ones that you purchased. If there are two empty slots you just need to insert the cards into these slots (just ensure that you ground yourself before touching the cards or the mother board by anti-static band or at least touching something metal first).

When you boot up assuming the bios is fairly current should recognize the new memory and you should be good to go.

How to install new OS?


1) Make sure that the selected O/S can be installed on your specific PC/LAPTOP: THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UPGRADE (which required an approved existing O/S) and NEW INSTALLATION.
1) Make sure you have all the required BIOS, DISK, VIDEO, NETWORK, SOFT KEYS, ETC ... DRIVERS FOR THE SELECTED O/S for your specific PC/LAPTOP
2) Make sure that you have enough FREE DISK STORAGE
3) Make sure that you have enough/minimum RAM Memory for your selected O/S to make it useful (eg. Vista and 1 GB memory = not too good for performance)
4) make sure that you have a 'legal' O/S Installation CD/DVD and the required LICENSE KEY
Installation is normally started automatically from a Bootable Installation CD or DVD for your selected O/S - Just be patient and follow all the prompts.
Hope the information is useful! Let me know if your need more info.

Mixing Memory


You can't install two RAMs with different MHz on a single motherboard. Sometimes it works but, usually one of the RAM gets busted. This is based on my experience though.

Upgrade problems


Your system comes stock with one stick of DDR2 (512 MB), which means that it is _ not_ dual channel DDR2 memory as dual channel DDR2 must be installed in matched pairs. Try to exchange the new memory for 2G of some single channel DDR2.

Gateway sb-4100-b won't recognize new memory


Check the owners manual of your computer for the correct installation of 2 sticks of memory, this can be critical on computers with 2 banks of 2 slots, it will also tell you the maximum ram that will work. If you do not have the manual, go to the manufactures website and then go to the support link, and browse for memory installation. BPCS
