Memory Upgrade and Computer will not boot

I have tried upgrading the memory on my eMachine W3118 with 2gb patriot memory. When the new memory was put in place, the power button when pressed will not boot the computer. I tried putting in the old memory and it does the same thing. Then I unplugged everything from the motherboard before plugging it back in and retrying with the old memory. It still just runs the fan and the hard drive doesn't boot at all.

You need to do a BIOS Upgrade. First get the name of your BIOS when the computer boots up. Then go to the we site and find your BIOS brand and get a version update or upgrade.

Be VERY careful and follow the directons to the letter.

Let me know if this helps.

    Sounds like your Power Supply went out. You can try opening the System unit cover and making sure the Video card is secured in the slot (unless the video card is part of the Motherboard). If this fails, then i would bet you have a bad Power Supply.

Can you upgrade to 4 gigs of memory even though it says 2gigs on the eMachines EL1200-05w


@stuart252

I don't recommend upgrading the computer's RAM because this computer only supports up to 2Gb at max, if you upgrade it to 4Gigs (2pcs 2Gb), the machine may not boot up at all.

Cheers

I recently purchased Two PNY 1Gb ram to upgrade from original 512mb. When I put both 1Gb ram in the slots, the computer will not boot up. When I take one out and put the original 512 back in with the other...


I don't know your specific model, but some of the Emachines had some memory directly on the motherboard. With the 1Gb and 512Mb sticks installed, boot the machine and report how much memory the system sees. Perhaps the onboard memory is causing you to exceed the 2Gb limit.

Please post the memory size you get here with the above sticks.

Thanks,
Dan

The bios won't recoginze the memory upgrade? How


maybe the memory upgrade is not supported by the system.
  • check the specification of the computer first and verify if it can support the memory you put into your computer.
  • remove the new memory and put back the old memory, (try if it works now)
  • if it works with the old memory, then definitely, the problem is with the new memory. make sure that the memory is compatible with the system and it supports the capacity of the new memory you have in it.

How do I upgrade memory on a t1100 emachine from 256mb


Your emachines eMachines T1100 only supports modules made with a specific type of chip. Should you find what seems to be the exact same memory elsewhere for a lower price, it is very possible that the cheaper memory will not work in your computer. From what I see you should use straight PC-133 Try a site like Kahlon.com-they make sure it works with your computer as would kingston or corsair...
Your maximum amount of ram is only 256mb total.
hope this helps...good luck- please leave a rating...thank you kindly

Memory Upgrade


Not knowing what model of computer you are talking about, I'd suggest you try various combination's with your memory modules as some computers are picky and accept certain size memory chips in certain slots only.
Furthermore, it could be there is a bad connection on the sockets or if you have not been ESD safe, you could have zapped the memory chips and or the main board.
