Adding RAM Hi, My current memory is 2x 512 and decided to add 2x1gb, system became unstable, did a 'check it diagnostic' resulting in 'memory allocation failed'? I have installed the new 1gb in individually and no problem but when I install them both the same issue occurs. Thanks Huw.

    Hi,

    Thanks for that but I may not have explained it quite correctly.

    It works fine with 2x512 (original setup) but not with 2x1024.It does work with 1x1024.

Before you go further, make sure you are putting one of each 1G in the blue slots, and the 512M sticks in the other ones. Otherwise, you may have a defective memory slot. If you say it works fine with the 2x512 alone, and with the 2x1024 alone, that seems to be the only thing left is the memory slots. You may just have to run the 2x1024 (which wouldn't be bad). Also, make sure your memory settings are not incorrectly modified in the BIOS settings.

I have a 512 mb 667mhz sdram on D102Ggc2 board.now i decided to up grade memory. Can i upgrade system memory without lose this 512 mb.


Hi,
Yes you can. but make sure that you buy the exact same type of RAM stick that you have and put it in the other RAM slot so the Dual Channel feature will be active (dual channel makes data transmission/processing faster) and making your systems memory 1GB. However, your motherboard can utilize or handle up to 2GB or RAM so you can put also a 1GB RAM stick which will make your systems memory a total of 1.5GB (that will be the case if you really dont want to lose the 512MB that you currently have,
Hope this helps.

Hi, my Asus a8m has 512 mb of ram. I'm considering buying a macbook, but wondering if it would be worth upgrading to 1 or 2 mb of ram and having a professional 'clean out' my asus. Would it be worth it?...


max supported memory is 2GB (2x1GB sticks replacing your current memory). Yes, it'd be worth it to add more memory of you were keeping the machine, otherwise restore it to original configuration and sell it "as is". Don't get a professional, just used your ASUSes restore option to set it back to factory configuration.

He,Hi This is Abhishek from India.I wanna 2 attach an external RAM of 512MB.Will it support or not?


Hi Abhishek, not sure what you mean by "external" RAM? If you have Vista then you can use a USB drive as extra RAM using "ReadyBoost" - see link (it is Wikipedia so info could be wrong):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Readyboost

If you are looking to add additional RAM to your motherboard then the Aspire 3000 will take up to 2GB of DDR333 (2x1GB modules). See link to manual here:

Upgrade problems


Your system comes stock with one stick of DDR2 (512 MB), which means that it is _ not_ dual channel DDR2 memory as dual channel DDR2 must be installed in matched pairs. Try to exchange the new memory for 2G of some single channel DDR2.

Memory confusion different readings


It sounds like something isnt working right, what operating system are you using, Vista? I would take out the original 512 and see what it says after, often ram isnt compatible if it is too different in size and speeds. Also, if your motherboard supports dual channel ram and you have the extra 512 chip it wont run in dual channel mode, you would run better with just the 2 chips then the added 512 chip.

Acer Aspire T-180 Memory Upgrade question


Hello, You might be able to add 2GB more. 1GB per slot. You need to get the model # off your motherboard and verify what the maximum amount of memory it will support. 1GB per slot would be 4GB total but some Operating systems will only support 3GB. So some might be wasted if that is the case. You would need to use the same memory type. So if existing is PC2-4300, use the same. Hope this helps.
