    I thought maybe I wasn`t able to install the game from Aol "The Rise of Atlantis" because I didn`t have enough memory. But I have 19.3 GB used space, and 33.6 GB free space. So maybe I don`t need any memory. I have tried everything, it downloads, installs, and when I click on the icon for the game on my desktop, it acts like it is going to play, Terminal Studios screen comes up, but then it goes right back to my desktop. Anybody have this problem? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Daisyrain643@msn.com

    Ok, where do I go on my computer to find the graphics card, and how much space is on it? Thank you for all the help so far, I really appreciate it. I do have Snood on my computer which a game, and also play games on POGO.com, and have no problem. Daisyrain643

  • Daisyrain643 Jul 01, 2008

    OK, johnyu_05, this is Daisyrain643, I did what you told me to do, and under Display Adapter it says SiS 650, does that help you? Terminal Studios is the name of the company that puts out the game "The Rise of Atlantis" on AOL games. Thanks for your help, will wait to hear from you, Daisyrain643

  • Daisyrain643 Jul 01, 2008

    Dear johnyu_05, I tried downloading it from the web site you sent me, but it wouldn`t work, my SiS 650, tried to update it, but said it couldn`t find any better driver for it. I just don`t know what to do. Do I need to buy a new driver, or what. I am not a guru, so don`t know what to do. Thank You for all your help so far, I appreciate it very much. Daisy

Ok lets see

If you want to install more memory into your pc
you have to remove one of the older ones first.

then you can place in the new one.

Can you tell me more about the game you trying to play can you give me a link to it?

Thanks

Hi Daisy,
You need to remove one of the old RAMs but would like to remind you that different brand of rams with different type of memory would cause a conflict in the future. better remove both your OLD RAM and replace only that new 1GB ram, unless one of your old rams is a 1Gb also with the same brand.

let me know what you did. :)

    Hi daisy whats terminal studios? is that like a monitor warning?

    anyway, im thinking about the graphics card. Is that a heavy game?

    But I have 19.3 GB used space, and 33.6 GB free space
    -oh by the way, the digits you are referring to here is the hard disk space, has nothing to do with RAM.

    so, did you remove your old ram( both of it) and replace it with your new 1GB memory?

    Videocard can be seen under:
    right click my computer>select properties>under hardware tab,select device manager then expand display adapter.

    tell me what you see under it.

    and since you bought your new 1 GB ram already, replace your old ram (both) with this new one.

    ill try my best to help you since we are troubleshooting remotely, :)

    i guess thats an onboard video card, do you know what the requirements are, for this game you downloaded daisy?

    have you tried re-installing the game?
    have you tried downloading it from another source?

    pls give me the link of your downloaded game and ill try to install it in my pc.

    Hi Daisy,
    try this link here:
    http://aol.trymedia.com/t_01ku1/197_2012...

    i download it from there, its a 1 hr trial version though and it works for me. try to see if it will work on your pc,

    after downloading,click on the icon on your desktop, it will download the whole installer after that, you will see a download folder on your desktop,in there, you will see the installer.

    :)


  • james yu
    james yu Jul 02, 2008

    I'll ask around for some more help from my fellow friends. thats an odd problem you got there.

    im pretty sure the game is not that heavy so you dont really need to enhance your video card. ill get back to you :)

Motherboard for compaq pcsr5109uk have upgraded to 1,5 GB this adding a 1 GB ram since doing this pc will not boot up,pc has said that the mother board has died this has only started since new ram have...


From what you have stated, the original ram memory was two sticks of 512MB.
It's PC2-5300
(DDR2 Sdram at 667MegaHertz)

When installing ram memory, and installing two sticks with one stick being larger, the larger stick of ram memory is installed in Slot 1.

This is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
(The Processor reads Slot 1 first)
On the motherboard it has DIMM 1 printed next to Slot 1.

The 1GB stick should go into Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and the 512MB stick should go into Slot 2 (DIMM 2)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01077654&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3457899

Scroll down for the motherboard illustration, and photo.

Won't boot up with the original ram memory installed again?
1) What type, and size of 1GB ram memory did you install?

2) What ram memory slot did you install it in?

3) Did you follow anti-static precautions BEFORE you put your hands inside your computer, and BEFORE you took that ram memory stick out of it's protective anti-static bag?

[Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

You may not even see it, or feel it.
Poof!
No computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame to relieve your body of Static.

{A couch, bed, or directly on a carpet floor are HIGH areas of Static]

Before you answer my questions try this;

If the two sticks of 512MB PC2-5300 are still installed, follow anti-static precautions, and remove them.

Take a pencil eraser, and clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of each ram module. (Stick)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

(The above example is DDR Sdram, not DDR2 Sdram. I posted the link so that the gold plated contacts are clearly shown.

DDR Sdram has 184 contact pins.
92 on each side.
DDR2 Sdram has 240 contact pins.
120 on each side)

Remove the eraser dust with air. Use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth.

Reinstall the ram memory modules.

Computer unplugged from power, press the Power On button in.
Hold the button in for a count of Five seconds.
(Count 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory settings.

Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on.

I await your findings, and answers to my questions.

How to open my Dell Dimension 4600 to install two new gigs of ram


1) Computer off, and disconnected from power.

2) Disconnect all cables leading to your computer.

3) Lay your computer down on a table. Lay the right side towards table.
(I like to lay a clean, static free towel down on the table first, to prevent scratching the computer, or the table)

4) You are now looking at the back of the computer, with the power supply fan to the Left side.

Look underneath, along the top edge of the computer case. There is a computer case cover release latch, on the Right side. Pull the Cover Latch to the Right.

Now pull the side cover towards you. (Towards the back of the computer.

Lay the side cover aside.

5) IMPERATIVE!
BEFORE you reach inside, or take the new Ram Memory sticks out of their protective, anti-static bags, TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case!

Your body carries Static electricity. Static can fry out your computer hardware components.
Touching the metal frame of the open computer case, will relieve your body of Static.

Should you get up, walk away, then return, TOUCH the metal frame again.

Refrain from handling Ram Memory sticks by their gold plated contact pins. (Bottom of ram stick)
You can handle the ram stick anywhere else, as the body of the ram stick is coated with a see-through plastic.

6) Dell Support > Dell Dimension 4600 Series > Manuals > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/index.htm

A) Left-click on - Removing the Computer Cover

B) Go back to this main menu, and Left-click on -
Removing and Installing Parts

Now Left-click on Memory.

Not trying to insult your intelligence, but if you have never installed Ram Memory before:

Your computer uses DDR Sdram ram memory modules, ('Sticks')
(Double Data Rate - Synchronous Dynamic Ram Access Memory)
A DDR Sdram module has on Notch on the bottom.

The Notch looks to be centered upon a cursory glance.
It is Not.
The Notch is over to one side a little.

(Actually a DDR Sdram ram memory module has 184 contact pins on the bottom.
92 on each side.
The Notch is located in-between Pins 40 and 41.
40 pins on one side of the Notch, 52 on the other side)

The Notch must be lined up correctly with the Locating Lug, in the bottom of the ram memory slot. The ram stick only goes in, in one direction.

There is a lock on each side of the ram slot. White in color, looks like an 'Ear'.
Dell's reference to a lock is 'Securing Clip'.
Put your thumbs on the top of each lock on a ram slot, and gently push down, and out.
The lock pivots to the outside.

When the locks pivot, the ram stick is raised up out of the ram slot.
Upon closer examination, you will note a small slot at the bottom of each lock.

The bottom corners of the ram stick, fit down in these slots.
Set the ram stick down in the slots of the locks, Notch lined up with the Locating Lug.
Push down on the outside top corners of the ram stick.

When the ram stick is fully seated, the contact pins will be down in the ram slot, and the locks will be seated against the sides of the ram stick.
You will notice that each lock has a 'Bump' on it. This Bump lines up with a Notch on the side of the ram stick.

The bump must be in the notch, for the ram stick to be fully seated.
Usually you will hear a satisfying 'Click - click', as the lock's bumps click into the notches.

IF, the ram memory slots that you are installing ram memory in, have never been used before, they may be tight.
You are installing new ram memory modules.
Makes the fit even tighter.

Sometimes it's a 'Pee Picker,' to get those ram memory modules to go in.
Makes beads of sweat pop out of your forehead!
Other times they slip right in with No problem.
Thought I would warn you in advance.

If I understand correctly, do I understand you are installing TWO - 1GB sticks of DDR Sdram?

[DDR Sdram at 333MHz {PC2700}, or DDR Sdram at 400MegaHertz?
{PC3200}

1) If the ram memory modules that you are installing, are larger than the ones already installed, install the 1GB ram modules in DIMM 1, and DIMM 2, ram memory slots.

DIMM 1 is Slot 1.
Slot is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
The Processor reads Slot 1, First.

DIMM 1, and DIMM 2, (Slot 1 and Slot 2), are a matched pair of ram memory slots.
They are in the same Channel.

About my ram of p4m800-m7 rev 3.1 i have a 512mb ram already installed and i buy a new ram with a 1gb size and i would like to install it but my question is is it okay to put them together? my 512mb ram is...


The black rectangular chips on the side, or sides, of the ram module are DRAM chips. Dynamic Random Access Memory.

('Chip' is slang term to denote IC, or Integrated Circuit)

Each Dram chip is of a specific size, (or can be said as Amount)
There are manufacturers who make the Dram chips, and then the chips are used by the ram memory manufacturer.

Doesn't matter how the Dram chips are arranged. The ram memory manufacturer could put them all of one side, if they designed it that way.

1.Your motherboard will support, (Use), DDR at 333Mhz, or DDR at 400MegaHertz.
(PC2700 and PC3200, respectively)

2.The ram memory module must use 2.5 Volts.
(JEDEC has set the voltage standard for DDR Sdram at 2.5 Volts, so no worries here. Only time to check this, is if you have some High performance ram, that may be set to use a higher voltage)

3.It must be Non-ECC ram, and Unbuffered.

4.Cas Latency should be 2.5 to 3.0 (Ram Timings)

Short solution?

Computer off, and unplugged from power. TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.

Handle the ram 'sticks' by the body of the stick, and refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom.

If the 512MB stick is in SLOT 1, remove it. Install the 1GB stick in Slot 1. Make SURE it is seated!

(Slot 1, is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor. It is the first ram memory slot that the Processor reads)

Leave the computer case open. (Refrain from putting your hands in while the computer is plugged into power)

Plug the computer into power. Wait 30 seconds. Turn the computer on.

Computer boots up? (Starts)
Okay.
Unplug from power. Install the 512MB stick in Slot 2.
Plug into power, wait 30 seconds. Turn the computer on.
Computer boots up?
You're good to go.

1GB ram memory stick is in Slot 1, and the computer does not boot up?
Incompatible ram memory. Remove it. Reinstall the original 512MB stick in Slot 1.

Is it possible to install high desnsity memory RAM on a T42


The T42 can support up to 2 Gb of RAM.
The laptop comes with 512Mb of RAM under the keyboard and a spare memory slot on the bottom of the laptop.
To install 2Gb of RAM put 1Gb in the memory slot under the kerboard - need to remove the old RAM and put the other 1Gb in the memory on the bottom of the laptop

T42 Memory specs.
  • 64-bit Double Data Rate (DDR) non-parity SDRAM memory
  • PC2700 at 333MHz
  • Two 200 pin SO-DIMM memory slots, one slot is pre-populated with 256MB or 512MB, leaving one socket available
  • Supports up to two 1GB SDRAM SO DIMMs
  • Supports maximum memory up to 2GB

Total amount of RAM not recognized by computer


are the modules the same specs? you may have some incompatibality between them. the board may be reading the ram right it may be you have four 256 sticks instead of 2 of each. read the motherboard manual it might shed some light here.

Adding memory to a a75-s211


How much memory did it have before you removed the 256Mb RAM?
If it had 756Mb RAM then the memory in the laptop has 512 Mb plus 256 Mb RAM modules, the 256Mb in the slot you can see and possibly 512Mb in a slot under the keyboard or soldered on the motherboard.
Therefore by removing the 256Mb and replacing with 1Gb memory module will give you a total of 1.5Gb

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!

SAMSUNG 1GB RAM 400MHZ PC3200


RAM has to be

Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
It has to be the same.


• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
Or
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets
