If the memory you added does not match the current memory in the system you will not see the correct size. Use you're manual to find the correct memory needed to function in you're system. The manual will explain what size, (MB), speed=MHz. single sided or double sided DIMM's Voltage needed & what slots the DIMM's need to be inserted into. A motherboard with two DIMM slots for memory may require both slots use the same size of memory. All this information should be listed in the manual. Another example of memory not showing the total amount of memory. My board can run 4GB of memory. (This is what I’m running). Watching the boot up screen I can see the total memory is listed correctly but when I go into device manager at the general screen. Windows only reports 3GB of memory. As a tech I know this is correct because windows is using 1GB to run other memory intense systems. Allot of boards do the same. One can feel cheated. You're system may be doing the same thing.

Installed a second 256 mb memory card and it won't recognize it. System is still operating on only 256mb of ram instead of 512.


Are the DIMMS identical?
If they are not or one is faulty, it will not recognise the both of them.
Does it work with each RAM either way round?
The must be of the same manufacture and speed.
Hope that helps.

My dell xps 700 will not boot up. On the diagnostic lights it shows 1 3 4. Says memory in the owners manual. I took it to a guy he says its the mother board. what is your answer


it could be the memory controller, which is a part of the motherboard. a memory controller error would appear as a ram issue, until you tried replacing the ram, and it still shows the error.

it is very easy to test ram. just take out all but 1 ram stick and try to boot. if it does not boot, try a different, single, ram stick. it is nearly impossible to have 2 bad sticks of ram, so if 1 of them doesnt work, then it is the motherboard's integrated memory controller.

What is your Motherboard type? Sometimes you might want to check that you can boot more than 2g's it is likly you can't but im sure you could, is there more than 2 slots for ram aswell? if there is try putting all 4 memory sticks in, if this further doesnt help, go to your motherboard website and get the latest drivers.

Having a problen installing 1gb ram. unit is 1gb ddr2 dimm 533mhz. computer turns on, shows that it has updated the memory, but does not boot


Hi,

if the computer states that the memory has been recognised. but fails to boot. it may not be compatable memory for your CPU/Processor. Or system bus. check your previous memory stick, to ensure it,s the same running speed 533mhz. Failing this if your computer does not support this.
check the manufacturers website, to see further details:- Maximum supported memory/Speed et,c.
Systems bios date, and whether an update is available. your only other alternative is to install 2 x 512mb sticks of Ram.

Added new ram stick now monitor does not recognise pc tower


According to this page (a memory vendor which I'm using only for illustrative purposes) your machine only supports up to 1gb sticks of the 400mhz variety. So you would use 4 x 1gb for a total of 4gb max.

One of the ram isnt recognised???


This is likely a memory timing incompatibility. You can go into the BIOS settings of many motherboards and set the timing specifically for each RAM slot, but without knowing exactly which piece of RAM you have I can't tell you what to set it at. You could use the utility CPU Z, install one stick, run the utility and write down all the memory information, then install the other stick and write it down too. Then go into your BIOS and see if you can set all of your specifications to match the memory.

Of course if you could find someone to swap sticks with that would be easier. Some motherboards are more picky than others about which sticks they work well with, name brand manufacturers are more picky than aftermarket in general.

the 1gb memory modules need to be low-density ie chips on both sides. the motherboard can only recognise 512mb on each side of the memory module.
