PC 133 Max ram for your model is 512MB - two 256 Memory sticks. Open the case, remove the menory in there (one clips on the side of each module) take note of the way the module comes out - replace with your new ones - reboot and that should be that.

Types of sdram


PC66 SDRAM
PC66 SDRAM is the original module speed of SDRAM. PC66 SDRAM was the earliest version of SDRAM and therefore came in a number of smaller megabyte sizes than later versions. Most early motherboards were rated for PC66 SDRAM. The available sizes are 32MB (megabytes), 64MB and 128MB.
PC100 SDRAM


PC100 SDRAM was released after PC66 SDRAM and runs at a higher speed. It has the same number of pins as the earlier memory module and is capable of utilizing the same RAM slot. The only difference when installing this SDRAM in compatible computers with older systems (PC66 slots) is that the SDRAM will run at a slower speed. PC100 RAM comes in sizes such as 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB and 512MB.
PC133 SDRAM

The last generation of SDRAM is PC133. The PC133 memory provided a speed upgrade and comes in larger sizes than previous generations of SDRAM. PC133 modules are backward compatible with older SDRAM slots. The PC133 memory, however, will be forced to run at the slot's slower bus speed (PC66 or PC100). The memory comes in sizes like 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1024MB.

My gateway essential 400 cant run newer programs **** *** window 7... or explorer 8... or flashplayer 10... how can i upgrade my computer 2 make it run these programs ? a new hard drive ? or what do i do...


Hi,

You can add hard drive if your system doesnt have enough space for the new programs. If the new programs installs well but is running slow or not starting, then you will have to upgrade your RAM and for better performance, fix one graphics card suitable for *********** board. If you can spend more, Upgrade *********** board and processor.

Thanks

WOULD LIKE TO ADD SDRAM 128 PC133 TO UPGRADE SYSTEM ON GATEWAY ESS 500


go to Newegg.com and search for your specified RAM and buy it when you get it just tack off the side of your case and pop in the stick(s) where you see the other RAM sticks (usually close to heat sink fan and power supply/ optical drive)

feel free to ask more if you must.

How to install upgrade sdram 128 pc133 for gateway 500


INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
1. Place the computer's power switch in the "off " position and disconnect the AC power cord. 2. Remove the computer's top cover following the instructions in the model-specific owner's manual.
3. Before touching any electronic components, make sure you first touch an unpainted, grounded metal object to discharge any static electricity stored on your clothing or body.
4. Locate the memory expansion sockets on the computer's motherboard. If all the sockets are full, remove smaller capacity modules to allow room for higher capacity modules.
5. Handle your new module's carefully; do not flex or bend the module(s). Always grasp the module by its edges.
6. For some installations, DIMM memory can be installed in any available expansion slot. Other installations may require the memory to be installed in a particular sequence based on the modules capacity. Check your owner's manual to determine the correct installation sequence for your configuration.

  • Insert the module into an available expansion socket. Note how the module is keyed to the socket. This ensures the module can be plugged into the socket one way only. Firmly press the module into position, making certain the module is completely seated in the socket. Repeat this procedure for any additional modules you are installing.
  • Most 168-pin DIMM modules have ejector tabs. The ejector tabs are used only when you need to remove a module. By pressing down on the ejector tabs, the module will pop-up from the socket and it can be removed.

    7. Once the modules have been installed, the computer's top cover can be reinstalled.
    8. Plug in the AC power cord and reinstall any cables disconnected during the installation process.
    9. Turn on the computer and follow the instructions in your computer owner's manual that describe the steps necessary to allow your computer to recognize the newly installed memory.

    RAM upgrade for Gateway model MFATXNIN NMZ 300L?


    Hi,
    The system takes PC133 SDRAM, as far as i know without performing a BIOS flash it can take up to 1GB (2x512MB) most of these PC's are restricted to 2x256 so a BIOS flash could be imminent in this case.


    Good luck

    Laptop doesn't recognize new ram


    I would guess that you need PC 133. Some manufactures that were using SDram at the time required PC133 while others would require but allow you to use PC100.

    This is the requirement for your laptop from www.crucial.com

    Each memory slot can hold SDRAM, PC133 with a maximum of 256MB per slot.*

    Hope this helps
