You need to make sure you have a processor of at least 700mhz. Two 256MB modules no problem. Many times you can buy a used laptop on ebay (either 9300 or Compaq armada e500) with the two 256MB modules included a lot cheaper than just buying 2 new 256MB modules. The Compaq Armada and 9300 modules interchangeable. Either way, you can still buy 2- 256MB modules(PC100/133 SDRAM 144PIN LOW DENSITY) for under $40.00 shipped. Very easy to install. I suppose if you have a P4 processor you could even go larger. I use Linux, which is 3-4 times faster than windows anyways, with no viruses etc. I have two 9300 laptops running like so with no problems whatsoever. Extremely fast(with ubuntu), too! If you haven't tried Ubuntu operating system you haven't lived. I'm no computer geek and find it so simple and fast. Free downloads on internet or buy a Live CD on ebay for a buck to try out without having to install.

Ram 256 MB but show 128 MB pls send solution


If you have an existing 128Mb RAM module and inserted another 128Mb to give you a total of 256Mb and it stills shows 128Mb. Then the second RAM module may not be compatible or the second RAM module is faulty.
Try and use the same make and type RAM module as the original or insert a 512Mb RAM module instead of two 128Mb RAM modules. There is not much price gap between 512 and 256 Mb RAM.

I need to know how much ram my motherboard will be able to run without burning up? I have an Emachines t1090 w/ Windows XP, 900MHz Intel Celeron Processor, 128MB SDRAM, CD-ROM 48x Max. CD-Drive, 20GB Hard...


The max for your system is 512MB. You have two memory slots and one has a 128MB chip so if you want 512MB, you need two 256MB chips and throw away the 128MB.
At Newegg, a 256MB chip is $42+ shipping of $1. I'd consider getting a new computer instead.
I don't think memory upgrade will tax your system cooling.

I have a Sony Vaio FX802 with 384 MB ram, split 1 x 256MB and 1 x 128MB across 2 banks. Last week I noticed that I was running on 256MB only so I re-seated the 128MB module and that seemed ok for a time,...


when adding new memory always take all memory out, reinsert the new 256mb stick into the first memory socket dimm1 normally, boot the laptop up, if the laptop boots then fine the memory module is ok, shut down and insert the original 256mb into the second slot, dimm2 then boot the laptop it should now boot normally, if not there maybe problems with the memory slot itself, give it blow to get rid of any dust and try again, if this dosent work post back.

Max Ram PCG FRV37


If the 1GB sticks fit and you are able to insert them it will not do any harm to your PC. However, it will only use the max amount stated in the manual. This is hardwired into the motherboard so there is no get around.

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)

Incorrect value on ram


Hi,

Even if the new memory is 256mb, the motherboard will not read it as such but a max of only 128mb. Alternately, what you need is to get is another 128mb SRAM rated at 100/133 MHz. Sorry to say but yours is a common problem when newer memory are fitted to a relatively not so recent machine.

Good luck and kind regards.
