I understand you have a Optiplex GX150 Computer. Have you tried this link?

Check the technical specifications, and click on "Installing Upgrades" and make sure your RAM that would added fits those specifications. It could be your motherboard is just not compatible with the type of RAM you bought.

Cheers,

Check the specs for your new ram. It sounds like you have double density ram installed. If your motherboard only supports single density it will only see 1/2 of the modual hence 64meg showing for 128 stick.


Please rate this solution if it has helped you.
Thanks, Gary

Pc freezes when new memory installed


You problem is the motherboard.On your PCs mother board the 128MB that came with the motherboard might be the highest memory the chipset on your motherboard can accommodate. The chipset is built in and you cannot change or upgrade it. You can speed up the PC with how many memo sticks you added, if the chipset can handle. So it look like if you want a fast PC you need to get a new motherboard chipset with higher memory clock frequency.
Here's the pic of the chipset on the motherboard(square type)

RAM memory in a Presario computer


Hello,

No, it does not matter what size ram modules you have installed, aslong as they are supported by the laptop.

You can have 128MB on one slot and 1024MB on another for example, but these days its more common to have sizes like 1024MB and 2048MB. As long as the size and speed, type is supported it will work.

Thank you,
I will fix it!!

yes, a 400 mhz processor can run windows xp, but you will want to have a LOT of ram. i would not recommend it unless you have at 256-512 or more ram.

windows 2000 can get along with 128-256 ram.

What are the ram limits on a compaq presario 5000a. I put 256 ram in the compaq and it only reads 128. Why?


You can install up to 3 sticks of 512 mb of memory. Did you add a 256 stick to the already-existing 128? You need to put DDR266/PC2100 memory. To troubleshoot, remove the 128 stick and put your 256 in and see if it is recognized. You will know right away from the bios screen. Memory needs to be the same type.
