Inserted Ram Expansion Nintendo 64

I inserted the Ram Expansion into Nintendo 64 to play Donkey Kong 64, all I got was a blue screen. I turned everything off again and removed the ram expansion and reinserted the jumper pak which was in place before Ram expansion. Everything worked fine until this was done. Still nothing but a blue screen. I had used the ram expansion memory pak before and never had any problems until now.
Is there anything else I can do before I trash it?

I would just look at the bottom of the RAM and see if there isn't any dust, I get that problem with my NES and NES games only diffrence is it shows a pink screen instead of a blue screen. I clean the treads of the cartrages including the RAM with a very light damp cu tip. Hope that works out.

How to play Donkey Kong 64 without Expansion pack


Donkey Kong 64 was one of only three Nintendo 64 games to require the Expansion Pak (the others being The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Perfect Dark), which provides 4 MB more RAM for enhanced graphics and more expansive environments, as well as to fix a game-breaking bug.We don't think that you can play this game with no expansion pack. I have tried to play perfect dark with no expansion pack and it was not all there then.

My console wont work and when it did it had an error sign. Something about needing a pak. What do I need and how do I get one?


your looking for the "expansion pack" its needed to play the games on the n64, it is located on top of the n64 towards he front of the console. that little door/flap between the power and reset button. get one online for cheap. like ebay or something. keep in mind there are 2 different kind of expansion packs on is black. it is the standard one. one is red on top, that one is better and will play all n64 games like donkey kong 64 and zelda ocarina of time

You're talking about Donkey Kong 64 right?

If so, you need to buy an Expansion Pak.

Nintendo 64 expansion pak


Barb3: The Jumper Pack (JP) is a bypass for the expansion cartridge. You were supposed to turn off the equipment remove the JP and then use the expansion cartridge. Your N64 Ram it's probably gone for good. Is either replace the RAM, which is hard to find or replace the N64. Sorry for that.... SithPitt
