    I'll try a good stick of RAM. If something comes up on the screen at all, that will be a good sign.

My hard works but me screen will not come on after installing 2 GB of ram , but the screen works when I put in the 1 GB of ram...


A) ALWAYS helps if you post the laptop manufacturer name, and model number.

Model number is on the Bottom of the laptop.

B) EACH Ram Memory slot has a MAXIMUM Amount of ram memory it will support.

If the TOTAL Maximum Amount for the laptop is 2GB, plus there are two Ram Memory slots, and the Maximum Amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB, what you are doing = NO.

Awaiting laptop manufacturer name, and model number.

C) Also, post what you see on the 2GB ram memory module, or info elsewhere for it.
Need to know WHO made it, and what it's specifications are.
May NOT be for YOUR laptop.

Blue screen when trying upgrade memory


If you are adding more RAM to the existing RAM then then new RAM maybe incompatible with the existing RAM. Use RAM that is the same specs as the existing RAM and from the same manufacturer.

I have a compaq presario c700 with intel celeron it has a ram of 1gb but i want to extend it to 2 or 4 gb is it possible???


One good and easy way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.

This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM you currently have installed and what type it is.

It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity is for each slot and the total capacity for that motherboard.

If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to get to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.

I have 2 512 cards installed and the computer only shows that I have only 512 installed and it should be 1 gig?? What would be the cause of this?


There could be many reasons,
1 Either the RAM slot is not working
2 or the RAM card(s) are not OK
3 or the RAMs are not compatable(not of the same specs)

Solution
1 Remove both the RAM cards, clean the metal joints in both the RAMs and the RAM slots
2 Remove power, remove all power source, remove power cables including all the battery
3 Keep presssing the power switch ON for a few mins, Do....ON... OFF, ON... OFF WITHOUT any POWER
4 Replace battery, power adaptor, power cables etc
5 Insert one of the RAMs in 1st RAM slot, power on, check if it's OK, Switch OFF, remove the RAM
6 Do the above process for the other RAM, now check if that works, use the same RAM slot
7 Now do the above two steps for the 2nd RAM slot

It will give you a rough idea of where is the issue.....either RAMs are not OK or the slots have issues or there is a compatibility issue among the RAM cards.....

Pls reply back and leave a feedback

Hillo good morning. my laptop used 512MB RAM(DDR2), I removed it and put 2GB RAM(DDR2), which is entirely defferent product, After which the system work fine and OK, but every time I shake the laptop, it...


Most probably the new 2 GB RAM module you installed is not making very good contact with the motherboard, or is not properly seated in its slot. Please check it. It won't even harm if you removed it from the slot, blow some compressed air into the slot, then re-install the RAM module.

DELL Inspiron 3500 2nd RAM Slot not reading


since the second slot is not reading either RAM module, then to fix it will require replacement of the motherboard. Motherboards for that system are cheap (Less than $50) but unless you are comfortable installing it yourself, that system really is uneconomically repairable (Cost more to fix than it is worth)

Installing ram


You need to go into the bio and update the memory there and the Yellow ! will go away. Boot the PC, select the F8 key during post, go into the setting for Memory and accept the change and you should be good to go. Let me know //D
