Take the case off your computer. There are either 2 or 4 slots for memory. Depending on if all of your slots are full, you might need to remove your old memory in order to install the new memory. If all your slots are full, remove all the old memory. There are little switches on both sides of each memory stick. You will need to push the switches over in order to put the memory in the slots. Once you completed the installation, turn on your computer. Windows will automatically reconize the new memory.

My e-machines will not let me upgread my ddr2 1eb memory


That Machine would take DDR2 PC2-5300 upgrade chips. The max that system could take would be two 1GB sticks for a total of 2GB or 2048MB of memory. Memory is fairly easy to damage with static discharge and is also very easy to not put in all the way. When putting it in, unplug the power from the computer, push and hold the power button for 20-30 seconds to help discharge power from the computer, Line up the pins on the memory and push them into place till the little arms at the sides of the slot pop up and click into place. I'd install one chip at a time, powering the machine up after the first chip to make sure it works, then starting over again. The only time I'd install both chips at the same time would be when installing a memory kit (two or more chips in one package), in which case, install both chips before powering it on.

Application popup: svchost.exe - Application Error : The instruction at "0x745f2780" referenced memory at "0x00000070". The memory could not be "read". Help me to rectify this...


this is a common error if you try to install a new memory card or if you are infected by a virus. if you tried to install/upgraded a new memory card. these are the thing you need to consider - memory card is not properly installed to the memory slot - memory card is not compatible to the system - if you added a new memory card it means that there is a conflict between the old and new memory card
if you did not install/upgraded a new memory card. these are the things you need to consider - you are infected by a worm/virus. try updating your system by installing system updates. install antivirus software - you might install a software that is having an issue with the memory installed in your system. - Operating system is corrupted need to reinstall the OS. - hardware failure try to check first the memory card then hard disk. or just contact local technician.

Memory reads 128 mb vs 512 mb when new memory installed


Reseat the memory and try rebooting the pc,If it still shows 128mb then take out the 128mb memory and leave in the new one.If the PC does not boot or gives you beep codes then the new memory is faulty.

Installing memory upgrade


No.
Once you install the memory into the slot the BIOS will update the memory configuration during the bootup proccess.
You can check to see if your new memory has been fully recognised by double clicking "System" in control panel.
If you check the amount of memory in System before the install and compare it afterwards you will know for sure if the memory has registered correctly.

Gateway sb-4100-b won't recognize new memory


Check the owners manual of your computer for the correct installation of 2 sticks of memory, this can be critical on computers with 2 banks of 2 slots, it will also tell you the maximum ram that will work. If you do not have the manual, go to the manufactures website and then go to the support link, and browse for memory installation. BPCS

Ram memory


the problem may be that your new memory is not compatable with the current memory and board, the easiest way is to remove your memory and just install the new memory and try all slots, if you get no boot then you know the memory is not compatable.
