  1. The first thing to do is make sure the computer is shut down.
  2. Please ensure that the power supply switch is turned off, you may leave the power supply plugged in while the switch is turned off to provide an active ground. However if your power supply does not have a switch then unplug the computer to make sure that it does not power on accidentally. Please discharge any static electricity by touching an unpainted metal surface before handling any computer components. Frying a chip with static electricity is a rare occurrence, but still possible.
  3. Remove the computer's cover following the instructions in the model-specific owner's manual.
  4. Locate the memory expansion sockets on the computer's motherboard. If all the sockets are full, remove smaller capacity modules to allow room for higher capacity modules.
  5. Once you've discharged your static electricity, pick up the memory chip by its top or sides. Don't touch the silver or gold contacts at the bottom, because even a little oil from your finger can eventually interfere with the connection. Regardless of the type of memory you have, it will only go into the empty memory slot one way, so look at the notches in the contacts and line them up so the partitions in the RAM sockets fit in the grooves.
  6. Insert the module into an available expansion socket. Press the module into position, making certain the module is completely seated in the socket. The ejector tabs at each end of the socket will automatically snap into the locked position. Repeat this procedure for any additional modules you are installing. The ejector tabs shown in the illustration are used to remove a module. By pushing outward on the ejector tabs, the module will pop-up from the socket and it can then be removed.
  7. For most installations, DDR2 modules can be installed in any available expansion slot. Other installations may require the memory to be installed in a particular sequence based on the modules capacity. Check your owner's manual to determine the correct installation sequence for your configuration.
  8. Turn on the computer and follow the instructions in your computer owner's manual that describe the steps necessary to allow your computer to recognize the newly installed memory. (Most computers will automatically recognize the additional memory installed).

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

I recently purchased Two PNY 1Gb ram to upgrade from original 512mb. When I put both 1Gb ram in the slots, the computer will not boot up. When I take one out and put the original 512 back in with the other...


I don't know your specific model, but some of the Emachines had some memory directly on the motherboard. With the 1Gb and 512Mb sticks installed, boot the machine and report how much memory the system sees. Perhaps the onboard memory is causing you to exceed the 2Gb limit.

Please post the memory size you get here with the above sticks.

Thanks,
Dan

I have a compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc, was wondering how do i go about upgrading the RAM?


I have checked the Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Specification It Originally has 2GB Memory and supports upto 4GB RAM max. If you intend to upgrade the RAM, you can buy additional RAM and put them in you system. Here is the HP Guide to Replace RAM and How to Upgrade RAM Guide
Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX has two RAM slots for DDR-2 (533 or 667) Memory Modules. First you have to check that the RAM slot is available for additional RAM. I believe that it has two modules of 1GB each in both slots. So, you have to get two modules of RAM 2GB each to upgrade to 4GB (or one 2GB RAM module to upgrade to 3GB). Hence, it is recommended that you get 2GB replacement module for each 1GB module you have on you system from local laptop repair/ service center, which would be cost effective as existing 1GB RAM Modules would be useless for you upon upgrade.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

Is there anything you need to do before or after upgrading your memory card in an hp laptop


If this in reference to the Ram Memory module/s, the answer is No.

Things to know about upgrading Ram Memory in a computer.
A) What is the Maximum TOTAL Amount for the computer. (Motherboard)
B) What is the Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot.
C) What Type of Ram Memory does the computer support. (Motherboard)
D) What frequency rate of Ram Memory does the computer support. (Slang for Frequency Rate is 'Speed')

If you have the correct Ram Memory, and are only installing 1 Ram Memory module, be sure to install it in Slot 1. (Also referred to as DIMM 1)

This is the Ram Memory slot the Processor reads first.

If I knew what HP laptop computer this was, such as the Product Number, and I knew what Ram Memory you are installing, I could help you further.

On the bottom of the laptop is a white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number
(S/N = Serial Number. Do Not give this out online, except to HP Support)

If your problem does not regard Ram Memory, please disregard this solution.

Changing the ram in my toshiba stellite a45 laptop


I don’t have a diagram for upgrading memory in this particular model, but it’s very easy. You can access both memory slots from the bottom of the laptop if you remove the memory cover. The cover is located in the middle, right beside the fans. All you have to do is remove 2 screws and remove the cover. I believe Satellite P15 memory is expandable to 2GB in both slots (Slot A + Slot B = 2GB) and you can use PC2100 DDR RAM, PC2700 memory should work too (it will run at PC2100 speed).

Check the laptop specifications before you buy new RAM module. I just discovered that different Satellite P15 models use different memory types. For example, according to Toshiba specifications Satellite P15-S409 uses PC2100 DDR memory, but Toshiba Satellite P15-S479 uses PC2700 DDR memory (I think it might be a typo, but not really sure).

Who can show me how to upgrade ram for aspire 4720


On the bottom of the laptop your going to see a very big door that has about 6-10 screws holding it into place.

take out all of the screws and then the door should come off. Your going to see two slots and either one or both slots will have memory sticks in them depending on your configuruation.

To insert the 1GB of stick into the slot you need to align the slot on the bottom of the memory stick with the nudge on the slot. The memory can only go in one way. If both slots are taken up with memory then you need to take one of the memory sticks out and to do that just move the spring loaded latches away from each other and the memory will come out.

If you need further help then let me know.

Upgrading ram


Hi reisrui, yes it is odd. (It's not the first time I have seen this.)
According to you're manual on page 6, under Specifications. The manual say's you can run up to a Max speed of PC3200 400MHz, 1GB in slot one. In slot 2 you can run a Max of 1GB of PC2700 333MHz in slot 2. Every motherboard I have come across that can run two different speeds of memory. The system will reduce the Max speed to the lower MHz memory speed. If you currently are using 512MB PC3200 400MHz in slot 1 & add 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2 for a total of 1.5GB of memory. The motherboard will ruduce the total memory over all speed to PC2700 333MHz. Motherboards alway run at the lower memory speed if two different speeds are presant.
I can’t be 100% sure of the 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2, will run at all! Or if it will be reduce down to 333MHz. I am sure you can run 2GB of PC2700 333MHz, 1GB of memory per slot in you're board for a total of 2GB.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Reg ram upgradation


Each memory slot on the C555NR can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. There are actually 2 slots, but only one is easily accessible to you. By upgrading both the primary and secondary DIMMs, you could achieve a total of 2GB of memory but you would have to remove the 512mb chip that is already installed and replace it with 1GB (+1GB in the expansion slot as well.)

If you don't plan on taking the computer to a professional to be serviced, you will probably only want to upgrade the memory in the secondary slot located under the memory cover on the underside of the computer. It can handle a 1GB SODIMM.

FYI the memory is:
200 Pin DDR2-533 PC2-4200 SODIMM

Good luck!

Memory upgrade


hi there, if is still hardware warranty, don't touch it. use your warranty. better to repalce unit with warranty. Beeping sound means memory problem. The problem is in the slot of the memory chips of the board. If the warranty laft, try to clean the slot of the memory chips to the board and the contact of memory chips. It will work seem you were using it before you upgrade the memory. TY
