Question about Gateway 7322GZ Notebook

1 Answer

I only see one memory module (RAM) in my Gateway 7322GZ notebook. Is there another slot that I can use to expand memory or is it just the first slot only? Thanks. John.

Yes, it only has one slot - to upgrade you must replace the current module with a higher value of memory.

I put a 2gb ddr2-667 memory chip in the single (only) memory slot in my gateway nx100x notebook pc. The pc will not boot up with the 2gb memory card. Is there a compatibility problem or do I have a ba


yes, there may be compatibility problem. your 2GB ram may be dead. try your 2gb ram on other notebooks. if it is working on other notebooks, then your ram is ok. your notebook will support maximum 2GB ddr2 memory per slot. your notebook may not be booting due to unsupported frequency of your ram. maximum supported frequency for your notebook may me 400Mhz, and you are putting a 667MHz ram into it. try to put a 400MHz 2GB ddr2 ram in your notebook.

How to install ram memory on e644g-0663 laptop


http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emachines/notebook/2011/eMachines/eme/eme644g/eme644gnv.shtml

http://support.gateway.com/emachines/notebook/2011/eMachines/eme/eme644g/eme644gsp2.shtml

Up to 8GB of DDR3 Sdram ram memory that is SO-DIMM for laptops, and 1066MHz.

That is PC2-8500 that is SO-DIMM

An example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4505186&CatId=4153

There are TWO Ram Memory slots. EACH one has a maximum amount of 4GB.
Total Maximum Amount of Ram Memory is 8GB.

IF, just one Ram Memory module ('Stick'), is to be used, it is placed in ram memory Slot 1. (DIMM 1)

(The Processor reads what is in Slot 1 first. Cannot have ram memory in Slot 2, and not Slot 1 also )

What?
No that's okay Acer/Gateway/eMachines!

I have access to the SERVICE MANUAL, bahahahaha! Your lack of info doesn't bother us...........

http://www.manualowl.com/m/eMachines/E644G/Manual/258030

This is a PDF file. Scroll the page down using the scroll bar all the way to the right, until the top header of the PDF file reader shows.

To the immediate right of the number 216 at the top, is the Page Down Arrow.
To the left of the number 216 is the page number box.
The PDF reader page numbers do Not match the actual manual's pages.

Put your mouse cursor in the page number box.
Backspace the 1 out.
Left-click once.
Type -> 95
Press the Enter key on your keyboard.

(In the Top header is also the controls for view size.
To the left of the page number box is a Slider that is a blue 'Dot'.
Left-click on the blue 'Dot', hold the left mouse button down, and drag it to the left to Decrease the view size.
To the right to Increase view size )

Under the bold subheading - Prerequisite, click on the blue -
Base Door removal

Bottom of laptop facing you, open Battery Compartment to the Top, away from you, the Base Door is at the bottom.
Rectangular cover that has two Philips screws holding it on.

One screw at the Top/Middle, one screw at the Bottom/Middle.
Remove these two screws, do not lose them. (Double-sided sticky tape to table, and stick the screws to the tape )

BEFORE beginning;
Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

To go on;
This is a general example of a laptop SO-DIMM ram memory module,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1GB_DDR2_SO-DIMM.png

Note the Locating Notch on the bottom, and the two Side Notches on either side.

The Locating Notch at the bottom, lines up with a Locating Lug in the bottom of the ram memory slot.
For this reason it can ONLY be installed in one direction.

There are spring clips that 'snap' into the Side Notch/es.
The top of one spring clip is eased to the outside of the laptop.
Now ease the other spring clip to the outside.

Once both spring clips are freed from the Side Notches, the ram memory module should pop up a little.

(Sometimes you have to keep one spring clip, held out with one hand, and with the other hand move the other spring clip out )

Remove the Ram Memory module, at almost the SAME angle as it is now. Slightly tilted.

DO NOT bring the Ram Memory module straight up, or you will damage the gold plated contact pins of the Ram Memory module, and also the contact pins down in the ram memory slot.

Notice how ram memory in Slot 1, (Slot A), is on top of the ram memory module in Slot 2. (Slot B)
If you have two ram memory modules installed, you have to remove the top ram memory module, first. (Slot A)

Again, if you are just going to use ONE ram memory module, it goes in Slot 1 (Slot A)

Look at the ram memory slot, and the Locating Lug in the bottom, and/or observe which way the Locating Notch on the ram memory module was, before you took it out.

Line the ram memory module up with the Locating Lug.
Install it at the same angle roughly, that you took it out at.

Once in the correct position the spring clips 'bumps', will snap down into the Side Notches, of the ram memory module.
(Click / Click)

Reinstall the Base Door.
Reinstall the Battery.
Attach the AC adapter (Charger), and plug the AC adapter into power.

(ALWAYS plug into the laptop FIRST, then plug into power. Otherwise a power surge could happen, and burn out electronic components in the power section of the motherboard)

WAIT 1 minute, turn the laptop on. BIOS will recognize the ram memory. You're done.

IBM T23 wont turn on after adding new RAM


Hi - according to memory suppliers your T23 has the following memory capacity / requirements:

  • IBM ThinkPad T23 maximum RAM capacity: 1GB
  • Your IBM has Two (2) memory slots or sockets
  • Module upgrade PIN count is: 144-PIN
  • The memory speed is: SDRAM 133MHz, PC133
  • The laptop DIMM type for the ThinkPad T23 is: SODIMM, SO-DIMM, Small Outline DIMM
  • Non ECC

If you are meeting these requirements, you may have a defective module.

Also, according to Lenovo's page on the machine:

Memory
The system has 128MB or 256MB of memory standard and can be configured for up to 1GB of addressable memory. Memory options up to 512MB SDRAM SO DIMMs each can be added in the two available slots for memory expansion. The standard 128MB of memory is expandable up to 640MB and the 256MB of memory is expandable up to 768 MB of addressable memory with 64, 128, 256, or 512MB SO DIMMs without removing the 128MB SO DIMM that is standard in one of the internal slots for memory. For customers that need the maximum 1GB to which memory can be expanded, it is necessary to replace the 128MB or 256MB card with a 512MB card plus add another 512MB card in the extra slot. Only 133MHz DIMM memory can be used in this system. The use of 100MHz DIMM memory is not supported in the T23 systems.

This means yo can trouble shoot the 512MB modules individually by installing one of the original 128MB modules and one of the new 512MB modules (for a total system memory of 640MB). If it does not boot, try again with the other 512MB module. This will help you identify a defective module that may be preventing the machine from booting.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Have a gateway mt3423 when i power on no display i have already bought new memory 1 gig ddr pny removed battery held power button put memory in top and bottom slots still nothing but power light steady on...


You could have memory problem, incompatible RAM or faulty RAM.
Are the RAM the same make and model?
Try inserting one RAM module one at a time to determine the faulty RAM.
When one RAM module works, then insert the 2nd RAM module to see if it works, Swap RAM around in the RAM slots.

I would like to nwom how much of memory this laptop support


The Thinkpad is installed with 128 MB SDRAM is standard, and is expandable to 512 MB
There are two memory slots, to expand it to 512 Mb you need two 256 Mb RAM modules and throw away the 128 Mb RAM module, but if you don't throw away this module and you insert a 256 Mb RAM module in the 2nd memory slot then your total memory would be 384 Mb.
