Many computers claim to be upgradeable to 4 GB of memory. While this may be true, it is also true that in order to reach 4 GB of memory the operating system needs to be 64-bit. I would be sure that the memory is seated properly first. Then I would exchange the memory. But my initial assumption is that it is too much memory for your operating system.

Laptop currently has three 4GB RAM sticks, is it possible to use another 8GB stick to upgrade it to 20GB?


It should. But RAM slots have a maximum RAM per slot. Have you checked with manufacturer manual to see what the max ram per slot is? And the max ram per motherboard matters too. Your mobo will only support so much ram.

You can add 1GB of ram but that's it. Definately not a 2GB Stick or 4GB stick.

Why does memory upgrade for biostar k8m800-mam2 motherboard cause memory error beeps?


I would verify that the memory you're using is actually working properly.
Try to boot to the new stick and see if it works.
If not, it doesn't work.
If it does, you may need to replace the original stick with the same stick that you are trying to use now.
Use this site as a guide.

What is better? to put four different rams or one single ram of 4gb in p4p800 vm asus motherboard


I would suggest going with a single piece or 2 identical pieces of RAM for expandability purposes. If you want to upgrade later, you will have the option to add more RAM. From a cost standpoint, you might be better off buying 2x 2GB sticks as a single 4GB stick of RAM might well exceed the cost of 2x 2GB sticks.

Hi there. I have an HP a6500f. Came pre-loaded with 4GB RAM. Worked fine for a year then started freezing/restarting/BSOD randomly. Ran memory diagnostics and got a BIOME-1 error with both sticks, but...


Try manually setting the ram timings in bios but....

i would think its a motherboard issue too by the sounds of it. find one that has a similar specification and fit it, I will suggest one if you need me to, just give me a list of the hardware you have installed on this current machine

You may have to reorder the same type of speed memory

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

I upgraded the RAM on Lenovo X200 (745533A) from factory 2GB PC3-8500 to 4GB PC3-8500. Checked the BIOS and recognized the new 4GB memory. The trouble is, after upgrading the RAM, the WIFI stopped working...


Possibly the new sticks are defective. Try this: disable the wireless devices before removing the old memory. Install the new memory and reactivate the wireless devices. Another possibility: mislabeled memory. Can you check the new sticks in another machine? Check online and see if your machine has a BIOS update. If so, you may have to do it. Take all of the precautions when doing this. If youre not comfortable doing a BIOS update, get a service tech involved. Improperly done, youll render your machine inoperable.
