Hi,

Try removing the memory again and clean/rub the little gold pins with a pencil eraser. When inserting back, you may need to wiggle it a bit to ensure that it is seated correctly and makes a snug fit to the slot.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

CPU will not recognize the last memory slot in my FX4710


RAM, or random access memory, is the physical memory on the computer but only holds data while the computer is on.
The benefit of adding more RAM is that it generally makes your computer faster.
Almost all new computers recognize your RAM after you install it and restart the computer, but if yours doesn't there are a few simple things to do to get the memory recognized.
Check the type of memory you have.
Computer motherboards will work only with the type of memory they are designed for regardless if the memory fits or not.
There will be either a sticker on the memory or a listing on the packaging giving the memory type and speed.
Check the computer's or motherboard's manual for the type of memory that is compatible.

Install the memory and make sure it is tight, otherwise it may not get recognized.
The memory fits into slots on the computer's motherboard.
There are tabs on the side of the memory slots to release it.
Release the memory if it is installed and put it back in by pushing it down straight into the slot until it clicks.

Restart the computer and hit the appropriate key to enter the BIOS.
The key will be listed on the screen.
Go through the menu choices by using the arrow keys.
Look for the memory listing under hardware.
Make sure all memory listings are not listed as disabled.
If so, change them to enabled.
Choose anything listed similar to "Auto detect."
Exit the BIOS and restart the computer.

I have an IBM NetVista PC model #830781U and want to install additional memory...1GB chip... How do I do it??


Ok, first of all before installing the ram, you want to make sure the ram you are installing into your computer if the motherboard support the type of ram chip you are installing it in. For your model it is ddr184 pin After this, you can take out your case panel which is the left side by unscrewing the 2 screws in the backside of the panel. Carefully take the panel apart from the computer and set it aside. What you want to located is the RAM slot on your motherboard which typically is 2 slot next to the cpu which has the big fan. Most likely one of the slot or both of the slot is already accompanied by the old memory chip. There are two hinges one on each side, bottom and top. Push these pins down and it would loosen up the memory chip that is already installed on. Replace the new memory chip and make sure you align the golden tooth pins extacly to the memory socket and then push down on the chip until it clicks. Test your computer if it works, if not. You computer may not support the memory chip.

How do I install an additional RAM card


The IBM NetVista A22p has 3 memory expansion slots. A memory bank is a group of memory expansion sockets, a bank must be completely filled with memory modules of the same size and type in order for the system to recognize and address the memory. i.e. :

*2 sockets (2 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 2 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.

*3 sockets (3 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 3 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.

*4 sockets (2 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 4 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

*8 sockets (4 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 8 memory slots. These are divided into 4 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

*12 sockets (3 banks of 4) This indicates that there are 12 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of four memory slots. So you must add memory four pieces at a time (and they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

Hi! How can I increase the RAM on my Aspire T310? Can I do it myself? Thanks.


Yes, you can definitely do this yourself. Upgrading RAM is one thing that repair places make much money; however, it takes a matter of seconds to complete.

Your Acer Aspire T310 has two memory slots on the motherboard. Each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB each for a total of 2GB RAM. You should see a great improvement in performance.

To save on a long tutorial, I have included a video link. The type of RAM you need can be found at the following link. Kingston is another manufacturer you could check into also.

Please remember to unplug all cords from your computer and be in a static free environment before upgrading your memory. Good Luck!

I have just installed more memory to my computer and do not notice any difference in the speed of my computer


you may have installed memory that may not be compatible with your motherboard

do you know what type of mother board you have..
your memory must match in this categories
1. type (ddr, ddr2, sdram, simm, rimm)
2. speed (measured in mhz or sometimes given as a pcXXXX number)
3. cas number.
4. whether is ECC, parity, buffered, registered, non ecc
5. check your motherboard documentation to find exactly in what slot your new memory stick should go and which one should go first and which one should go second (ex. if you have dimm slots and you have 4 slots (2 pairs of different color) you may need to install one memory sticks like this: memory - empty - memory -empty
if one of the items that should be matched does not correspond your computer could work but it will work at the slower speed (ex. memory 1 (slow) + memory 2 (faster) = speed of memory 1

note: don't confuse memory capacity (1g, 512mb) with speed (333mhz, pc2700)... the best thing to do is to check the documentation of *********** board or even take the memory stick that you originally have and have the store looking for the memory that you need...

Install new memory


Take the case off your computer. There are either 2 or 4 slots for memory. Depending on if all of your slots are full, you might need to remove your old memory in order to install the new memory. If all your slots are full, remove all the old memory. There are little switches on both sides of each memory stick. You will need to push the switches over in order to put the memory in the slots. Once you completed the installation, turn on your computer. Windows will automatically reconize the new memory.
