Make sure the memory chip is compatible with the motherboard.
also, think about it...do you really need 2GB. (only good reason is vista)

hope this helps

My pc 2500k with 3.30 ghz and motherboard intel DH67CL but works slow


The symptom you describe is too vague, but you can try the following tune-up procedures. First, download and install and run Malwarebytes free version. This will root out any bad stuff/malware/virus. Next, download and install the excellent free utility program called CCleaner from Majorgeeks.com or Download.CNET.com. Run CCleaner to remove tons of junk files that may be slowing your computer. Next, if you have a regular spinning hard drive, run Defragmenter in Windows. Be patient with all of these tune-ups i've mentioned - they may take a while! Next, if your computer has less than 4GB of RAM memory consider adding more memory. Finally, give your system a serious speed boost by adding an SSD (solid state drive). These days you can buy a 240GB SSD for as little as $89 or a 120GB SSD for around $69. Use free software from the SSD maker's website to "clone" your tuned-up Windows onto the new SSD. Keep the old drive for storing data or for installing programs that you don't use often or that won't fit onto the SSD. Then prepare to be amazed at how responsive your system is.

Compaq EVO N1020V Not reporting RAM correctly


This sounds as thought he RAM is faulty.

You need to have installed 2 x 512 MB DDR 266 SoDIMMs and not 1 x SoDIMM.

If you have placed 1 x 1Gb SoDIMM in ther EVO this would account for you only seeing 480Mb of RAM.

Black screen with messege( ntldr is missing)


Hi,

If ntldr is missing either the computer is trying to boot off the wrong device(usb drive, floppy, memory chip, etc) or the boot sector on your harddrive may be damaged.

Remove any and all removable disks, including cd's/dvd's, reboot the computer and try again. If you get the same message then your harddrive is either corrupted(software problem) or damaged(physical failure).

Let me know how this works out, don't forget to unplug things like printers or cameras that have memory card reader, even if there's no chip in them.

Hope this helps, let me know if it doesn't and I can provide you with the next steps.

CMOS error - defaults loaded.


It is possible that your CMOS battery is low or dead.It retains the memory power to the CMOS when you turn off your computer. Change it and see if you problem goes away. It's a round silver disk.They are sometimes called coin batteries because they look like a coin. They come out easy and your local Radio Shack or Batteries Plus will have them.

My computer is slowing down heavenly please help


The only way to get your computer to run faster without buying new hardware (such as RM or a new motherboard is to 1) eliminate unnecessary programs from starting up or loading at startup and/or by removing ad-ware/spy-ware from your computer.

1) Check to make sure that no programs that you are unaware of are starting up by running explorer.exe and going to Program Files/Startup and removing any progarms that you do feel you need from Startup.
2) Download, run, install either or both Ad-Aware (not AdWARE OR adaware) from www.lavasoft.com and/or Spybot Search & Destroy. Ad-aware and Spybot are both free and excellent programs.

Short of buying new hardware there is not much else you can do to make your computer run faster.

Pop Ups


you are infected with a virus/trojan. Sorry to say the easiest way to remove it is to reformat you hard drive. Your registery is now infected.

If you want to try to remove it, something like ad-ware or spy bot. It's free, but it will not remove all the trojan on your computer. I seen this happen to alot of people. You can google your problem and see alot of people are in the same boat as you.

Toshiba Tecra 8100 PIII laptop not booting


It could be a hard ware isuse. Try this.

If you have extra memory or removable Ram ( usually located on the bottom under a panel) Try removing it and starting it, with the ram removed. Then try putting it back in and starting it. If it works, it may be bad memory or it just needed to be reseated. Do this also with the cd drive and wireless card if it is removeable.

also try this with the battery, plug it in and remove the battery and see if it starts.

alot of laptops, like computers will not boot if there is a hardware issue.

The Beeping is a code. The number of beeps and how it beeps usually indicates an issue.

you could look the beep codes up on the toshiba website is the support center.

Good luck.
