I'm not an expert in memory, but if it was me, I would take it to Geeksquad or Firedog, so that they could install it and configire it correctly.

How do I fix an issue PC Bios not recognizing memory on HP Pavilion a6228x PC?


The beeps are a bios error code. Sounds to me like a power supply or motherboard got toasted. Refer to owners manual what the beeps mean.(how many, how far apart. Longs and short beeps etc are all codes)

Acer aspire t 180 cant get pc to recognize digital camera photo memory card


Has the computer recognized the memory card in the past? If so, try download and reinstalling the memory card driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Card Reader drivers.



If after installing the drivers the reader still does not work, you can purchase a multi format card reader that will plug into you usb port from Tiger Direct for less than $15. at



http://www.tigerdirect.com



When the site comes up just put in the search at the top "SD Card Reader or XD Card Reader" depending you your type and press GO. You can sort the returned results by Price Low to High.



Do you have a USB Cable that came with the camera that you can plug into one of the usb ports on the computer? If so, try that. It's another way of getting pictures off the camera. Plug the cable on the camera and into the computer then turn the camera on. The computer will recognize the camera and install the drivers. You can navigate through the camera folders just like you do any other device to find the pictures.

If your desktop is a Dell Dimension 2400 then this is the technical specs for the RAM.
Memory
Architecture
DDR SDRAM
Memory connectors
two
Memory capacities
128-, 256-, or 512-MB
Minimum memory
128 MB shared DDR SDRAM
NOTE: Between 32 and 64 MB of system memory may be allocated to support graphics, depending on system memory size and other factors.
Maximum memory
2 GB
Memory type
PC2100 (266-MHz) or PC2700 (333-MHz) DDR SDRAM (non-ECC)

The RAM modules are held in place with clips on the ends of the RAM modules. Push each clip down and away from the RAM modules and the RAM module will lift up.
To install the RAM modules, the RAM modules have a notch and can only be installed one way. Place the RAM module in the memory slot and push down until the locking clips swing up. You may need to push the clips into the sides of the memory modules to lock and secure the memory modules.

The price of the RAM depends upon the size of the RAM you want to install. I suggest a minimum of 1Gb of RAM and the maximum to can install is 2Gb of RAM.

Check the prices of RAM on the Internet and in the computer stores.

What are the ram limits on a compaq presario 5000a. I put 256 ram in the compaq and it only reads 128. Why?


You can install up to 3 sticks of 512 mb of memory. Did you add a 256 stick to the already-existing 128? You need to put DDR266/PC2100 memory. To troubleshoot, remove the 128 stick and put your 256 in and see if it is recognized. You will know right away from the bios screen. Memory needs to be the same type.

Hi, Based on your post/description: Problem 1 - experience has shown me that most of the time freezing is caused either by memory,video card or driver/software. Since you have reinstalled windows, that should rule out driver/software. Likewise, since it has a built-in video (Via-S3 @ 32mb) video can also be ruled out; not unless of course if you have installed an AGP video card (which should be 4X @1.5v). If you have, try removing it first and run the PC with the built-in video just to determine if the video is causing the freeze/crash/hang. That leaves us the memory, as shipped this brand/model only has 128 MB DDR or SDRAM but as per your post the mem is 640mb so big chance that you have upgraded/replace/added mem say 128 + 512? Here's the issue, your PC uses KM266 chipset with an FSB of 266, big chance the original mem is 266 or 333 but the added mem would be something else? You have to check that its rating should be the same as the other/original memory. Both memories should be the same speed. Am not sure if your motherboard also uses dual channel memory, but if it does maybe it will be better to have 2 X 256 or 2 X 512 rather than 128 + 512 (max is 1G). Problem 2 - Sometimes Windows installer does not completely recognize features of mb/chipsets, you simply have to install the inf, drivers, updates for the motherboard. They are available at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00021854&dlc=en&product=326832&lang=en& Good luck and hopes this be of some help or ideas to you. Pls post back how things turn or for further information. Kind regards.
