  • You Gateway only supports up to 8 GB. memory. Hence it will not see your 5 GB. dimms
  • tops: 8129 MB (8 GB.). 4- 2GB. Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.

  • Specs:
  • Installed: 1024 MB DDR2 (PC4200), 533 MHz memory (two 512 MB modules)
  • Expandable to: 8 GB (4 memory slots)

  • How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found at http://www.crucial.com/kb/answer.aspx?qid=4251.

    How to install memory for T3642 eMachine


    eMachines T3642 Computer takes the PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs. Supports Dual Channel DDR2. Memory Type, and comes installed with 1.0 GB = 512 MB (removable) + 512 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your eMachines eMachines T3642 Computer to up to a maximum of 2.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 1.0 GB = 512 MB (removable) + 512 MB (removable) standard Memory installed. For best Computer performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your Computer.


    INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
    1. Place the computer power switch in the "off " position and disconnect the AC power cord.
    2. Remove the computer top cover following the instructions in the model-specific owner 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 motherboard. If all the sockets are full, remove smaller capacity modules to allow room for higher capacity modules.
    5. The ejector tabs shown in the illustration are used to remove a module. By pushing outward on the ejector tabs, the module will pop-up from the socket and it can then be removed.
    6. Handle your new module carefully; do not flex or bend the module. Always grasp the module by its edges.
    7. For most installations, DDR modules 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 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. The ejector tabs at each end of the socket will automatically snap into the locked position. Repeat this procedure for any additional modules you are installing. install_ddr.gif 8. Once the module or modules have been installed, the computer top cover can be reinstalled.
    9. Plug in the AC power cord and reinstall any cables disconnected during the installation process.
    10. Turn on the computer and follow the instructions in your computer owner manual that describe the steps necessary to allow your computer to recognize the newly installed memory.

    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.

    No you don't have to install a 64 bit OS. Only if you install over 3 gigs you MUST install a 64 bit operating system. 800MHZ is fine it will just back down to 667MHZ. your 32bit windows OS will see up to 3 gigs (minus graphics card memory). SO 2 gigs will work fine. Install one stick at a time and check in the OS and bios to make sure each stick works. I would say you possibly have a dead ram stick.

    RAM Recognition 835GM PC Desktop


    the memory is dual channel, so you have to use matched memory for it to work 1gig in each slot if possible, check the 1 gigs and 512's to see if they run at the same bus speed, if they are not matched there is your problem try a gig and a 512 in slot 0 to see if it picks the memory up, also there is sometimes an option in the bios to dissable dual mode
