HOW dO I aDD memory?


It really depends on what you have now. Go to crucial's site http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/ and use the scan computer tool and it will tell you how, if you can and the parts if possible.
Frankly this is the safest and surest way of doing this.

Gateway desktop fx 7026 memory issue, has 4 slots came with( 2 )2 gb sticks = 4 gigs it came with. when i add 2 extra gig it doesnt recognize.


the specs i read says 8 gig is the max. here is what it says for RAM
RAM
  • Installed Size 4.0 GB / 8.0 GB (max)
  • Technology DDR2 SDRAM
  • Memory Speed 667.0 MHz
  • Form Factor DIMM 240-pin
  • Features Dual channel memory architecture
  • Configuration Features 2 x 2 GB

check to make sure you have added the right type of memory. also look at your user manual. it should tell you where and how to place the added sticks. sometimes they have to be added in pairs or have to be in specific slots. also if you dont have the manual it is on the gateway site. you should type in your model and serial number and get all the info you need.

MY THIS QUESTION IS ONLY FOR CONCAKA


AGP stands for accellerated graphics port and is a slot for a AGP video card to be added. These cards can come with amounts of memory embedded in them up to 512meg and will only go into a computer with a AGP slot. these cards do not fall into the 2 gig motherboard limit. That limit refers to the system RAM, not the ram on the video card.
If you go to START- RUN -type "dxdiag" without the """" in the box. the direct x tool will tell you how much of that 2 gig limit is installed on your computer. at that point you will need to do therough math and figure out how much more memory you need to add to reach the 2 gig max.
Hope this helps you.. Regards..

Added new ram stick now monitor does not recognise pc tower


According to this page (a memory vendor which I'm using only for illustrative purposes) your machine only supports up to 1gb sticks of the 400mhz variety. So you would use 4 x 1gb for a total of 4gb max.

One of the ram isnt recognised???


This is likely a memory timing incompatibility. You can go into the BIOS settings of many motherboards and set the timing specifically for each RAM slot, but without knowing exactly which piece of RAM you have I can't tell you what to set it at. You could use the utility CPU Z, install one stick, run the utility and write down all the memory information, then install the other stick and write it down too. Then go into your BIOS and see if you can set all of your specifications to match the memory.

Of course if you could find someone to swap sticks with that would be easier. Some motherboards are more picky than others about which sticks they work well with, name brand manufacturers are more picky than aftermarket in general.

RAM memory in a Presario computer


Hello,

No, it does not matter what size ram modules you have installed, aslong as they are supported by the laptop.

You can have 128MB on one slot and 1024MB on another for example, but these days its more common to have sizes like 1024MB and 2048MB. As long as the size and speed, type is supported it will work.

Thank you,
I will fix it!!

Ram problem


Kamel,
First of all you should know howmuch maxim RAM your board will support and which type of DIMM's it accepts. You can see on your motherboard manufacturer's site.

  1. Try each on in all slots one by one to verify all slots are well. if not try to clean and check again.
  2. If its ok then put both together and check out, if not then try to change the place and clean the contact point as well.

Thanks
Iqbal
