Upgrade vgnnr160e memory


If the laptop will take 2GB, purchase two identical 1GB chips. They will work faster than one 2GB chip. A useful site is http://www.mrmemory.co.uk/

EMachines T3304 won't work with 2GB memory


might not be a working pair

are the memory modules of the same brand and type
IE: hynex ddr3 low density

if you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system


hope it helps

I have purchase a memory upgrade KByte and not sure how to install. I went to www.kbytememory.com and found nothing to help me.


This looks very much like my old M90... you pop out the battery, locate and unscrew the memory door, and then snap in the new memory. Then restart the laptop... if it beeps at your (this is called a beep code) then the BIOS doesn't recognize one or both of the sticks. Assuming all goes well it should prompt you and say something to the effect of 'amount of system memory has changed, press F1 to continue or F2 for bios'... go into BIOS and confirm its reading the new memory amount (2GB will say 2064). This model apparently only accepts 2 x 1GB sticks so hopefully you didn't order 2GB sticks... unless there's a BIOS update you can install the mobo won't recognize memory sticks greater than 1GB. Good luck.

These links will be very helpful... please rate me if this helps you:

Just installed 2 2GB cards (Corsair VS2GB800D2) to replace the 1 1GB card in my emachines EL1200 series. Computer will not boot. replaced the old card and it booted right up.


Will it boot with only ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks installed?
Will it boot with ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks AND one of the 1GB memory-sticks?

Look closely at the 1GB memory-sticks.
Does the label show 'DDR266' or 'DDR333' or 'DDR400' or 'PC2100' or 'PC2700' or 'PC3200' ?
Do the 2GB memory-sticks have _identical_ information?
It's definitely _not_ acceptable to have "slower" RAM (smaller numbers) in the new RAM,
but it _might_ be acceptable to have "faster" RAM (larger numbers).

Hiya I have just fitted a 2gb upgrade to a aspire 1362 wlc but it will only recognise one bank of memory - I have tried them individually and they both work - just both won't work together - is there...


Questions?
Are both of them 1 GB?
Do they both work individually in each slot?
This laptop will only work with 2 1GB memory sticks.
If the memory works in each slot, the slots are physically ok.
If each stick works in each slot, the memory is ok too.
If one of these tests fail, you have found the culprit.
Check these things and then check the bios. I don't think there is a limiter in the BIOS.

Want to upgrade memory to 2 GB. Desktop will not post up with 2x1GB cards. Every 2-3 seconds it makes a sound/tone. The fans would turn on but there is no signal to the monitor. However, it will post up...


There is no reset just because you added memory.

If you have 2- 1GB sticks, try both , one at a time.

Your system spec's and manual tell nothing which dimm banks are suppose to be used , and if you can install 2-1GB sticks,
all it says is it can handle 2GB.

Now it says 512MB, sticks, this could mean you can only use 4-512MB sticks to get too 2GB,.

Now it does not tell which dimms are used if you have 2-1GB sticks,

You have 4 slots, the first two and the second two, most times, you either use the second bank of each pair, or the first slot of each pair,
but as I said, your system does not say.

So you can try both ways and see if one of them work.

Sorry I can't be of more help,but you system has a poor manual
on memory placement.

I bought the proper matching two 1Gig sticks of memory to upgrade my 2G mHz TC4200. I installed them and it wouldn't boot, so I swapped back the 1G stick to the original 512mHz chip and it booted. Then I...


Ok, Rob, did you buy the memory from Compaq/HP? Or is it a 3rd party set (ie. Viking, PNY, etc.)? Sometimes, Compaq/HP computers are VERY picky about the specifications of the memory that the mother boards will use. 

If you bought them from a 3rd party vendor, I would recommend taking them back and exchanging them for another brand or even just another set of sticks, but, before we go that route, let's try something else. 

Install a 1gb stick and the 512Mb stick and then go into the BIOS and see how much ram is being registered there. If it reads all 1.5Gb of ram, then we know it is something else, if not, then we have somewhere else to look. 

Assuming the BIOS registered the full amount of ram, try removing the 512Mb stick and then boot the computer, enter the BIOS and see if it is reading the 1gb stick properly. Assuming it did register the 1gb properly, swap the 2 1gb sticks out and repeat. If it did NOT register the lone 1gb stick, try moving the 1 gb stick to the other socket, and checking the BIOS again. If that works, then swap the 1gb sticks out, repeat the BIOS check.
Assuming that after you swap out the 2 sticks and they both work as lone sticks, go back into the BIOS and look for an advanced page or an option to turn on a "Diagnostic Mode" or "Memory Test", and run the memory test on each stick- one sitck at a time, to see if there is a minor/major memory addressing issue, with either stick. 

If they both pass individually, then, try reinstalling them both together and check to see if you can reach the BIOS with them both in place. If not try putting the 512 in the 0 or first memory slot and the 1gb in the second slot, then repeat the memory test, swap the 1gb sticks again, and repeat the memory test on the second stick- (the thinking here is that if it is not the memory sticks themselves, perhaps it is the motherboard or one of the sockets for the ram that is bad).

If you can reach the BIOS with both 1gb sticks in place, but, not actually boot to the operating system, then it is possibly a timing issue- this SHOULD BE AUTOMATICALLY configured, but, if you are an overclocker or a "performance wonk" you may have changed a relevant setting in the bios that controls the speed at which the memory and the processor interact. Or it could be a problem with windows hardware monitor not accepting the changes to the amount of memory in the machine. To test this possibility try going into "safe mode" at boot up, after the BIOS screen/Compaq logo has come and gone.

If you can boot into safe mode and not into regular mode, it is a problem with something in windows. Sometimes, just booting into safe mode alone will fix it, sometimes, it is necessary to run the restore DVD on the computer to fix the problem windows is having/ or alternatively reinstall windows without running the restore DVD, using this method will usually fix windows, with out deleting all of your data. You might have to reinstall a few programs afterward, but, your pictures, mp3s, document files, etc. will still be on the drive. Running the restore DVD almost always deletes your data, so USE THAT SOLUTION AS A VERY LAST RESORT, ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE TRIED EVERY other option I have given you. 

Good luck, and hope this helps.

Abit AW8 LGA775 Maximum memory


Hi there
Sounds like the bios will need updating as the board will support 8BG ram.
Put your old memory back in the machine, boot into windows, go to the motherboards manufacturers website and download the latest bios update and install it and reboot.
make sure you read the info on how to install the bios update.
I must also warn you that if you are using a 32bit operating system it will only recognize 2.9BG of memory, there is nothing you can do about this apart from install a 64bit operating system if the board supports 64bit processors.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
