Motherboard might not be able to recognize ram. Try old ram first. Depending on the beep, they typically mean that there is no/bad ram or no/bad video card.

Upgrade BIOS to see if it will resolve hardware issue with new stick of RAM


Hi Szusza,

The new RAM module you purchased may be faulty, it is definitely possible that either due to a fault of the new RAM or on the slot you are trying to install it to cause the computer to not fully boot.

Have you tried to boot the computer with the new module only?
If not please try this:

Replace the original RAM module with the new one (make sure you insert the new RAM in the same slot you took the old one out)
If the PC boots you know the new RAM is fine.
If this does not work I would suggest getting your new RAM tested.

If it does work, put the original RAM back in the computer (in a new slot) if it does not boot after that then, there is possibly a problem with the RAM slot on the motherboard.

Hi, I have upgraded my HP Pavilion DV1000 RAM to 2G PC2700 DDR 333MHz, but after turning on it just makes 4 short beeps and screen is not turned on, please help me fix this error.


4 Short beeps would indicate during POST (Power on Self Test) there is a initialization issue with added hardware. The DIMM you added may not be compatible, or installed in the correct order.
1. Remove new memory completely, and see if machine starts
2. If you have original memory module still installed, remove it and try new one by itself.
3. If that works, put newer larger module in the 1st slot, and move original in second slot, and try again.

The system can automatically adjust memory settings (speed and timing) itself from the SPD module on every stick of RAM. However if the settings are drastically different, it can cause problems. Generally it will run as fast as the slowest module, but now always, sometimes causing the slower module to be attempted to run out of spec and cause boot issues or system instability.

Good luck!

I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

I upgraded my memory RAM 2g and added 1g so it makes a 3G of ram but how come when my pc boot up up i can only see 2G ram single chanel. wen i go to my my computer----properties----general under computer:...


Could you please go online and in a search engine type "MAX RAM E-Machines (here put your model #)." Pick a link that secribes your maxi,um ram and if it's only 2GB you'll have your answer. If the max is higher there should be instructions on how to set the computer to acess and show the RAM.

Upgraded RAM on Acer T135 with 1 GB module. Computer will not turn on, just beeps. All connections are fine. What do I need to do to get computer to recognize the RAM


You either installed the wrong kind, the wrong brand, or to much memory.

So if you did one of these, there is nothing you can do to make it work.

First you should remove it. If you need more help, you need to post
your serial #, because this is the only way the Acer website will allow someone to look at the system spec's of the machine.

If you post back, also post the exact memory you installed,it will look like this,

Example- Crucial-2g-240pin- ddr3 1333(pc3 10600)
