    i had the same problem with an old 120 mb stick and then realised it had a lock button which when unlocked allowed me to erase files, however the freed up space did not become available until i erased the stick with disk utility. i though i would do the same with my 1gb stick (no lock button) but when i connected it up i found i could delete folders normally - strange!!

This is something I have found... Read on

you probably will not like my solution but my problem was only a mini external drive with about 20 files. I opened each file and <save> to another drive. For me it was easy, I saved to my HD. Then open Disk Utility and <erase> my mini drive, which remformatted me a clean and usable drive. Then just copied the files I saved and DONE.

I have an acer m1100 and for some reason any type of 1gb ddr2 memory it put in it just comes up in system properties sayin not useable if i boot wiv the other 512 stick in aswell, dont know why it wont...

Memory modules are fickle mistresses; sometimes you'll need matching modules of RAM for it to be recognized properly. From what I'm understanding, you're trying to boot a module of 1GB and another of 512MB. Try to swap the native 512MB for another 1GB stick and see if it works. As well, it's a good idea to install RAM modules that were manufactured by the same company.

Before you do that, it's important to understand that the RAM modules are very delicate electronics. It's also entirely possible, if you haven't worn sufficient ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD) safety equipment, that static electricity could render a module useless. Performing a RAM swap in a proper environment and with the proper equipment (ESD bracelets, in this case) minimizes the possibility of static electricity junking computer components.

Also possible, albeit rare, is that the module is simply defective out of the box. If this appears to be the case, then you can simply return it with the receipt for a refund or an exchange.

I recently purchased Two PNY 1Gb ram to upgrade from original 512mb. When I put both 1Gb ram in the slots, the computer will not boot up. When I take one out and put the original 512 back in with the other...

I don't know your specific model, but some of the Emachines had some memory directly on the motherboard. With the 1Gb and 512Mb sticks installed, boot the machine and report how much memory the system sees. Perhaps the onboard memory is causing you to exceed the 2Gb limit.

Please post the memory size you get here with the above sticks.

Trying to fit new 1gb memory stick in dell optiplex sx 270 but the system will not acccept it and not boot up error codes of ab yellow but cd green all it does is beep when fitted yet i refit the 256mb...


Memory is not interchangeable. Depends on your system, as to what memory to use. An error is telling you the memory is not correct for that PC.

Your Dell Optiplex sx 270 uses DDR PC2700 and DDR PC3200 memory.

Hope this helps.

Every time I put in new memory in get a beep code error

Although your machine lists up to 2GB of RAM memory, what they don't tell you is that in most cases, you need to have a 64 bit version of Windows installed to utilize the additional memory. Odds are very good that you have 32 bit version of XP installed. Try installing just 1 stick of 1GB and leave the other slot blank and see if the machine will boot.

Upgraded Dell Dimension 3100 memory to 2 Gigs - Windows XP fails

Did you add the two sticks with the 512 or remove the 512 and add the two 1gb sticks? Try booting the machine with ONLY the 1gb sticks in.

Your machine supports 1gb modules but they can't be higher than 533MHz. Check that the memory you purchased was either PC3200 (400MHz) or PC4200 (533MHz) and is 1.8v. If you post the part number off of one of the modules I can look it up for you.

I just needed to tell you that your very small fee (no problems there) cost more than a new USB memory stick. But for my more expensive problems I'll be back. Thanks guys D
