Hello

OK, firstly you will need to specify as to which model and brand mother board you are using. This will enable me to see how many memory slots you have available on the board. But, in general, if you have an available slot on the board, you do not need to take out the module to put in a new one, you can just add the new memory module in an open slot.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards
Andrea

My computer is very slow with 512 Ram


Hello you can add a new or 2 modules.

The mainboard supports:

2.5V (only) 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMM
Unbuffered, single-sided, or double-sided DIMMs
Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
DDR333/266/200 MHz SDRAM DIMMs only.

You can order the ram modules online or in a computer shop.
I suggest you add 2, 1gb modules and scrab the old module.

Here is the homepage:

I have a toshiba satellite A135-S4467 laptop, using two memory slots, totaling 1G. I've bought a Kingston ValueRAM - 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Laptop Memory Module. What is the best way to install my new 2G...


Hi, Yes, it would be best to take the old RAM out. I am assuming that this is 1 stick totalling 2GB. Optimally it would be good to have 2 x 1GB modules totaling 2GB, so they could work together. Otherwise, yes, just remove the the old ram and install the new module. If you are running a 32bit operating system, 3GB is all the system can use anyway. Hope this helps!

I installed another 256 of ram, for a total of 512, but the computer only says i have 256 what can i do.


I've done this before in my early days. Make sure that the memory is exactly the samme type as the original one, and make sure your motherboard can handle the extended memory. Check in system properties for all this info.

How to install additional toshiba a65 s1762 memory


Yes, you need to flip your laptop over and look for a removable compartment that requires you to unscrew a screw. Once you get the cover removed, you will see slots with either one or two memory modules installed. If one is installed, then you can add the additional memory module in the empty slot. If you have 2 already installed, then you will need to remove one and install your new module, which would only give you a total of 768 megs. Just slip the new memory in and press it down towards the motherboard and start your laptop..

Need to add RAM


Hello,

Located here is the actual specifications of your W3052.

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=W%20Series&model=W3052

The DDR means "double data rate", SDRAM is "synchronous dynamic random access memory" and DIMM is for "dual inline memory module". These are the way manufacturers describe the specific speed, type, and packaging of the memory. You need to get the correct combination for your computer in order for it to function properly. The PC2100 is NOT correct, at the very least it will slow your computer down, and possibly will not work at all. You should use PC2700.

If you wish to add another 512MB taking your computer to 1GB total, then you only need 1 module, a 512MB, like the one that came in the computer. Do not purchase a 1GB module expecting it to work properly with the one already there. It probably won't. If you want to max out your computer's memory taking it to 2GB, then you will need to purchase 2 each 1GB modules, and remove the existing 512MB module.

When you go to the computer store, you ask for either "one five-hundred-twelve megabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory module" or "two one-gigabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory modules".

The part numbers from, Kingston, one of the major add-on memory makers are shown here:

512MB = KVR333X64C25/512
1GB = KVR333X64C25/1G

Added a memory stick to my Dell 2400 Desktop computer and the monitor, mouse, & keyboard won't work


Hi

The supported Memory types for Dimension 2400 Series is PC2100 (266-MHz) or PC2700 (333-MHz) DDR SDRAM (non-ECC). Supported Memory capacities are 128, 256, or 512MB and a Max if 1GB (1024MB).

The first obvious question is does the new 512MB Memory module meet the above specification? Some Memory modules are able to steep down speed.

If it does, then first ensure the new memory module is properly installed. Take ESD (ElectroStatic Discharge) precautions or you may damage the new memory module and/or the system board.

To proceed compare the system beeps and diagnostics lights color and sequence to the Advanced Troubleshooting guide.

It is possible that the new memory is DOA (Dead On Arrival). Or there is a new fault on the system. If you have access to another compatible system, you may test the new and old memory modules. You may also swap the new and old memory modules to determine if the memory slot is at fault.

Lastly, if you remove the new memory module, does the system complete POST (Power On Self Test)?. If it does you may indeed have a DOA or incompatible part.

How do i install new memory in my Toshiba satellite A215-s4757


Remove the small vented cover on the bottom of the laptop. Gently pull on the small metal clips on each side of the memory module. It should spring up to about a 45 degree angle. Remove the old memory module and replace it with the new one. Make sure the small metal tabs snap into the small grooves on each side of the memory module.

REMOVING MEMORY


Make sure your new memory is compatible with your MB. Got to www.crucial.com and they have a download that will tell you exactly what to use. Static electricity kills. Get an anti-static strap. Make sure the new memory is inserted firmly and snaps in place securely.
