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.

Can i change 1 gb ram to 4 gb ram of tablet pc


Unfortunately the maximum amount of memory that the Acer Aspire One can have is 1/5Gb of ram. This can only be achieved by fitting 1 x 512Mb ram and 1 x 1Gb of ram.

You can put more memory in but it simply wont recognise it.

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Have installed 2x 1G PC2 6400 800Mhz Modules into the PC. However the machine will not boot up. If I simply replace one of the modules with one that I removed (256MB at 533MHz it will boot - and will...


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.

My sony cybershot doesnt show any files when connected to the computer. however the memory of the camera is almostfull and all pics and videos are visible when seen on the camera


Your pc is not recognising the camera or the memory inside it. Try connecting it with sony pc suit. Make sure the pc recognises the camera as a new device before proceeding.

My c902 has suddenly stopped recognising the m2 card


This may have something to do with how the m2 card is formated. PC systems such as FAT32 and NTFS do not work with cameras or telephones as the data cards in these devices are formatted to FAT16 or lower. In order to read the card when you placed it in your PC FAT32 would have been used.

If you are prepared to loose the data on the card I suggest you use a PC to re-format it to FAT16, your phone should then recognise it again!

Inspiron 2200 Memory Module not recognised


Are you sure its the correct speed/type of RAM? According to Google your laptop takes PC2700 DDR RAM, ensure you are using this in both slots to avoid problems. If you have it fully inserted into the slot and nothing happens when you swtich it on then the laptop doesnt like that type of RAM and you'll need to change it.

I installed 2GB ram pc doesnt start, i mean it starts but the screen stays black and the dvd station's light thing turns on and off


Will it actually recognise 2GB of ram? That could be your problem. Mine will only recognise 1.5GB. If I put in 2GB, it causes problems. More isn't always better.

RAM compatibility with MK79G motherboard


Hi, I am assuming that the original piece of memory was a 256mb ddr pc2700/333mhz ?
i have looked at your board on the product maker website and it supports memory to 2gb of pc2100,pc2700/pc3200 type memory. Be certain however that the new piece added is the same clock speed as the original that you are trying to use with it. You cannot mix clock speeds, either pc will not boot or it will only recognise the compatible piece. Have you tried booting with just the new piece 9 leaving out the older piece)if yes what was the result. Need more help ?? compdoctor2005@btinternet.com

Memory upgrade


Well...digging through HP's web page is always fun...;-)

but it looks like you've got the wrong memory. You should only use PC2100 DDR-266 MHz or higher RAM, according to HP.
(You can find the manual here.)
Sometimes the so-called "Memory Finder" on vendor's pages give you the wrong information. If that is the case (and it's their fault), talk to them and try to exchange it to the correct modules.

Ram Memory


your motherboard my only recognise two of the same size or make of ram. try the 1024mb in on it's own and see if the bios allows the system to boot and recognise it. see what windows recognises, go to my computer, right click, properties and in the main window it will tell you processor speed and look to see how much ram is showing
