Question about QDI Group QDI Advance 6T Motherboard

1 Answer

Memory I have recently put some more memory in to my system an extra 512mb along side the 256 which was originally in. When I restarted the computer & checked the system it only showed 504 mb I was expecting to see 760 taking into account the 8mb for on board graphics. I then removed the original 256 card leaving the new 512 in & started up again checked the system & it only showed 248mb. The supplier of the 512 card says this is 64x4 & this mother board only supports 32x8 that is my problem. what does this mean & is this correct

It means the most your motherboard will support per slot is a 256 RAM. Also, on older systems, some RAMs are not compatible with others.

IBM T23 wont turn on after adding new RAM


Hi - according to memory suppliers your T23 has the following memory capacity / requirements:

  • IBM ThinkPad T23 maximum RAM capacity: 1GB
  • Your IBM has Two (2) memory slots or sockets
  • Module upgrade PIN count is: 144-PIN
  • The memory speed is: SDRAM 133MHz, PC133
  • The laptop DIMM type for the ThinkPad T23 is: SODIMM, SO-DIMM, Small Outline DIMM
  • Non ECC

If you are meeting these requirements, you may have a defective module.

Also, according to Lenovo's page on the machine:

Memory
The system has 128MB or 256MB of memory standard and can be configured for up to 1GB of addressable memory. Memory options up to 512MB SDRAM SO DIMMs each can be added in the two available slots for memory expansion. The standard 128MB of memory is expandable up to 640MB and the 256MB of memory is expandable up to 768 MB of addressable memory with 64, 128, 256, or 512MB SO DIMMs without removing the 128MB SO DIMM that is standard in one of the internal slots for memory. For customers that need the maximum 1GB to which memory can be expanded, it is necessary to replace the 128MB or 256MB card with a 512MB card plus add another 512MB card in the extra slot. Only 133MHz DIMM memory can be used in this system. The use of 100MHz DIMM memory is not supported in the T23 systems.

This means yo can trouble shoot the 512MB modules individually by installing one of the original 128MB modules and one of the new 512MB modules (for a total system memory of 640MB). If it does not boot, try again with the other 512MB module. This will help you identify a defective module that may be preventing the machine from booting.

I hope this helps & good luck!

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.

Thanks,
Dan

Adding computer memory


The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

Beeping noise after installed memory on ecs motherboard L4S5MG


Some older computers, like mine, have a maximum memory they can handle. This one happens to be 1 gig, but yours may be less. Do you have an older computer? Yup, you do. As seen here, the maximum supported ram is 256. I'm sorry. Please rate.

Presario won't recognize second 256 RAM


Remove the original module, install just the new one and then start your computer. If it doesn't start, the memory you bought is bad. The system boards used in the Compaqs will auto-detect memory, and there are no jumpers or BIOS settings needed.

Computer will not work with extra 1gb ram


Hi,
It sound like you have incompatible memory. Try taking out the original 256 and test with the 1 gig. Keep in mind some PC requires memory to be paired. If you only have one, 1gig memory chip you might need to get another. I would try removing the 256 first. The specification of the motherboard would also tell you the memory usage.
Let me know if this helps!!

Weird (?) RAM problems (screenshot included)


First of all, make sure the ram are identical, becuase having 3 different random access memory chips in the computer can cause problems. Also make sure the ram chip is sitting in there properly. Next you should check under start go to run and type in "dxdiag".See how much memory it reports the computer has. If it reports 700etc mb,, then the one memory chip might be faulty. Also, check with the system manufacturuer, and make sure you're not overclocking the computer. Overclocking is when you put too much memory in a computer and it doesnt recognize one of the chips. 700etc mb might be the maximum your computer can handle.
