    Thanks for your help. Tried to startup in safe mode but the keyboard freezes and cannot get to safe mode with command prompt. Talked with the module manufacture and he thinks I received a bad one. They are going to exchange it.

Why won't new PNY DDR memory work in eMachines W4630?


Read your manual, as there website does not offer it just driver downloads.
Also, just because it is the same kind does not mean it will work.
That is why most MFG of motherboards have a quality vendor list
for memory. There are thousands of people who can't get some mfg's memory to work with there systems when the specs are the same.
But I would go with what Ultim said and there might be a slot limit.

Error message after installing memory ram upgrade.....


The memory appears to be the right kind.

Try installing just one 1GB module, and run the diagnostics (press F12 at boot time and select diagnostics).

Good luck!

You may need to install memory in matching pairs. If the new memory is a single 1Gb module and you didn't already have a similar one they may not work together. Try removing the original module(s) and see if it makes a difference.

MEMORY UPGRADE FROM DDR 256Mb to DDR2 1GB hangs when Log on/Booting


Its a memory problem obviously. Try dusting the memory slot and try inserting the memory into the slot a couple of times. If still not working, the memory may be incompatible(rarely, there are brands of boards that doesn't suit to certain brands of memory), or it may be damaged.
