Wrong type(brand) of memory some laptops are very fussy about what type of sodimm you put in them, I would put the 1 gig back in since it is more than the 766mb your getting with the new memory.

Constant beeps


this laptop can take 4G ram http://www.crucial.com/upgrade/Gateway-memory/M-1000+Series/M-1625-upgrades.html

if the memory modules are not from the same brand range, this can often be the issue.

it SHOULD be able to run with just 1 2G module but will run better with 2 1G rather than the single, assuming it's the right type for the machine.

If I'm upgrading pc memory, I remove the old and replace with Crucial or Kingston kits so as not to mix brands and ranges.

Wha t is the memory upgrade;how much acer 3000


Your memory that is in this is SO-Dimm 333 MHZ pc2700 and newegg has 1G sticks for about $40 each. So you probably can get 2 of them with a max of 2G for your laptop.

Trying to upgrade memory, have tried three sticks purchased at Best Buy terrific Geek Squad. None work. Where can I purchase a upgrade memory?


You may have non OEM memory, your system may not be able to handle that much mem, or you could have something wrong with the connector that your mem fits into. If your original mem still works then the connector is not the issue. You should also make sure you are putting in the memory stick correctly. Make sure it is put in straight and is firmly placed in the connector. If you don't it will cause your problem. Capacity is 1G. If you are trying to put in a 2G it will not work. Hope this helps.

I upgraded my memory on my Dell B120 inspiron to 2g - the system is so slow now, even more so then with the 1g. i can't have outlook or the internet open at the same time. when programs close out it does...


In compatible chips.

Go to www.offtek.co.uk There is a free scan check, with readout with recommendation, will tell you what is connected and not, and what to install.

Good luck!

My computer will not boot up when 2 g ram


Try upgrading your Bios first, also make sure that the memory that you ar putting in your Laptop is type PC-2700. Other than this, I know that this comptuer has a 2G limit and should have no problem with it.

I assume that you are referring to the maximum memory of this computer. It is only 1 gigabyte, not upgradeable to 2.

The right memory for your laptop is

256MB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/256, PA3389U-2M25 KTOS534

512MB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/512, PA3412U-1M51, PA3412U-2M51 KTOS535

1GB Memory (PC2-4200) KTT533D2/1G, PA3411U-2M1G KTOS536

Using the wrong memory can caused motherboard failure.

Try reinserting the old one memory module.
Be sure that the memory is placed in the right way

IBM ThinkPad T40 2GB Max RAM


The T40 has two ram slots, you can put a 1g chip in each totaling 2g. If the chip will remove, then it is changeable. Vista needs a minimum of 256 to run, so, when you change BOTH chips to equal 2g it will probably read 1.744g, or it may read the full 2g. If it only reads 1g, then the second slot under keyboard may have malfunctioned. It could also be that the 256 chip is bad and your really only running 512 now. With all that said, in order to achieve 2g, you will need to put a 1g chip in each slot.

Laptop memory


hmmm..ok...try them one at a time, and make certain that the laptop can id each of them. if that works, swap them in the sockets..if that does not work, then one of your sockets is unhappy.

also, use F2 when loading up, and see if memory is present in system setup screen..be careful in there, of course, since it's the nerve center of that whole computer.
