What type of CPU do you have? Is it a pentium 3 or 4 or dual core?

Are you willing to buy in online or in the store (easier to match what you need)?

If you are going to get it in the store, turn your PC off and locate your RAM. IT will look like this.

I am a novice to - 66c56d0.jpg

Pop a chip out and look at your Mainboard's model number. It is somewhere printed on the mainboard most likely in white. Google it and get the specs to see how much ram it can handle. Take your chip down to Best Buy or your local computer store and get what you need.

There are levers on either side of the ram. flip those out and line up the chips. Press it in until both sides snap in. Put your biggest stick closest to the CPU. If your mainboard is dual channel you will see your 2 ram channels separated. Put identical chips on both sides.

Hope this helps you out.

My computer start but no display !!!

Test the RAM as you did, only using stick at time and one slot a time. 4 slots by 4 DIMMs equals 16 different possible combinations to try.
You could also use memtest86 (Not for the novice) It is part of a free boot utility CD. Download. Burn and use.

How to add memory to xplore ix104c2

To begin with, the maximum RAM that the Ix104c2 can operate on is 1gb. Secondly, If you have little to no experience working on laptops, then I would suggest having a computer repair business or a friend who has the knowledge of doing so install the RAM. The inside of the ix104c2 is rather complex and upgrades/repairs should not be attempted by a novice.

Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xi1546

first start by downgrading to windows xp,then only upgrade you ram to 1gb then go to control panel and uninstall all the unnessacary files.

windows vista is generally a very slow program because it uses alot of space,xp is going to improve your speed and also dont load office 2007,rather load office 2003 its smaller and faster.

Can the memory be upgraded (increased) from the basic (factory installed) 512mb on the Sony PCV-W300G?

Hi there.
As far as i know you can upgrade the RAM to 2GB, 2x1GB 184pin PC2100 DDR DIMM Desktop RAM modules is what it can take.

Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB

Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.

Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

Replacing RAM in Dell Dimension 3000

Upgrading RAM will not affect your files. Just make sure you upgrade with compatible RAM & that you install it in pairs. So if you want 2 GB then you would want to be 2 x 1 GB RAM chips. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Please help

that shows that the ram memory is low, you need to upgrade to at least 256 or 512mb. because everytime you use the internet a there will always a temporary file that saves. you need to maintain your system by atleast amonth disk clean up. but the best is the you need to upgrade your ram memory
