Question about PC Laptops
Got an ECS elite group laptop model green 320 with a 256 mb sodimm. tried upgrading with a 512 mb pc400 sodimm but the system keeps sending a continuous short beeping sound. is it incompatible? the 512 mb sodimm works fine with an acer laptop so i know it is a working memory module. the laptop is working okay with the current 256 sodimm but i need to upgrade to 512mb for obvious reasons. do i need to reset the cmos settings. i cant see a reset button, do i need to open the case? what is the most compatible spec for the sodimm?
Older laptops can be VERY fussy about the memory ... you have to have the exact same 'speed' .. I had a similar problem after trying to upgrade an old machine that took slow memory (PC100) with a FASTER (PC133) module ...
NB> Some VERY old machines would not take 'double sided' modules ... check the manufacturers specs ..
