If the other is already installed on your system try the other ram and because it is maybe damaged or the other ram is not supported by your PC..

How do I add 8 GB RAM to MY 1 GB RAM Gateway 834GM system?

Sorry but your system will only upgrade to 2 gig of RAM
but where your current memory is installed there are two locking levers on each socket one on top one on bottom press on those to release the memory and remove the current memory stick, now when installing the new memory make sure the little notch on the memory stick lines up with the one on the memory socket when your sure its correct just firmly press the new memory stick into the socket the two llever locks should lock automatically if not you can do it manually, take care not to put to much pressure on the memory stick. hope this helps

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.

Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    Remember to rate solutions, to keep working for you!!

    I need to add more ram and I need a basic price to do it

    The HP Compaq DX2450 desktop computer uses DDR2 Sdram at either 667 Megahertz, or 800MHz.
    This is PC2-5300 and PC2-6400, respectively.

    1) The Maximum Total Amount is 4GigaBytes. (4GB)

    2) The Maximum Amount for EACH ram memory slot is 2GB.

    3) There are FOUR ram memory slots. You can install 1GB in all four, or 2GB in two of the Ram Memory slots.

    IF, you only have one ram memory module, ('Stick'), it MUST go into ram memory Slot 1.
    The ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
    On the motherboard you may see > DIMM 1 next to ram memory Slot 1.

    Advise do Not obtain high performance ram memory for this computer. The voltage needed may be higher than the factory default setting, for the ram memory. (Factory default voltage setting is 1.8 Volts)

    Also the ram timings of high performance ram memory may not work.
    Just stock ram memory will work just fine, and boost the performance of your DX2450 computer.

    To open the computer case, read the specifications of ram memory that is supported, and how to remove, and install ram memory, I would like you to download the Hardware Reference Guide from HP Support,

    On this page under the heading > Quick jump to manuals by category, I would like you to click on > Hardware reference

    Under the Title heading i would like you to click on >
    Hardware Reference Guide - dx2450 Microtower Model

    This is a PDF file. The computer you are on now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
    After you click on the file name, you may not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.
    The file is downloading in the background.

    After you see the first page, it may take additional time for the file to fully download. Suggest you let the file fully download before looking through it.

    If you are familiar with PDF files please disregard the following;

    The page number box is at the top of the PDF file. It is to the right of the Blue Down Arrow.
    There are three ways to get to a specific page.

    One ,use the blue down arrow until you arrive at the page you want.

    Two, click on the Bookmarks icon to the left, and use the Bookmarks menu.

    Three, place your mouse cursor in the page number box, left-click once.
    Type the page number
    Press the Enter key.

    Page 9 details how to open the computer case.
    Page 14 details how to remove, and install ram memory.

    If you cannot download the Hardware Reference Guide, please state so in a Comment, and I'll step by step you through opening the computer case cover, and removing/installing ram memory.

    As for pricing of the ram memory you need, I can give you a link to a website that does shows you choices, and prices.
    This is just one website. There are MANY. I am not advertising for them.

    I can also give a few examples from another website. Again, not advertising fro them,


    1GB at 800Mhz. Or also stated as PC6400, and PC2-6400


    2GB at 800MHz. (PC6400, or PC2-6400. The 2 is added to PC2 by some ram memory manufacturers to state that it is DDR2 (Sdram)


    2 Times 2GB sticks. Total of 4GB.

    What to choose?
    Depends on one's budget really.
    How much one can afford in order to boost performance.
    I can tell you that more than 2GB isn't really needed, unless you are an all and out gamer, and MHO is it's overrated.

    Tips and info from me:

    I'm going to show you a ram memory module (Stick) that is DDR Sdram.
    This is to only detail certain aspects of a ram memory module.

    A DDR Sdram ram memory module has 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
    92 on each side.
    A DDR2 Sdram ram memory module has 240 gold plated contact pins.
    120 on each side.

    (You can click on the photo to enlarge. You can enlarge twice)

    Observe the Locating Notch on the bottom. The cutout.
    From a casual observation it may look to be centered. It is Not.

    The bottom of a ram memory slot has a Locating Lug.
    The Locating Notch must line up with the Locating Lug.

    Observe the Notch on each side of the ram memory module.
    At the ends of the ram memory slot are Locks. They sort of resemble 'Ears'.

    The top of the Lock is brought out to the outside.
    The lock is hinged in the middle.
    Works on the same principle as a See-Saw on a playground.

    The bottom inside corner of each Lock has a slot in it.
    The bottom outside corners of the ram memory module sit down in these slots.

    As the top of the Locks are brought to the outside, they lift up on the ram memory module.
    As the ram memory module is installed, the top of the Locks come to the inside.

    Each Lock has protrusion, or "Bump' on it. The Bump fits into the Side Notch on the ram memory module.
    When the ram memory module is fully seated into position down into the ram memory slot, the Locks snap into the Side Notches.
    You should hear a satisfying Click, click as they do.
    This means you have the ram memory module seated.

    I lay the computer on it's side, opening up. Much easier to access the ram memory slots.
    You may have to unhook a couple of cables to be able to egress the ram memory slots.
    Make notes, and marks on them as to the proper positioning, BEFORE you unhook that cable's connector.

    Anti-Static Precautions:
    Your body carries Static electricity.
    Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

    It can also short out the Ram Memory module/s before you install them, after you take it/them out of their protective anti-static bags, or cartons.

    Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
    TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame.
    This will relieve Static from your body.
    Now you can reach inside your computer, and remove the ram memory module/s from their protective apparel.

    Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, upon your return be SURE to touch the metal frame again.

    Have questions please post in a Comment.
    Would appreciate hearing how this came out.

    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.

    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)

    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.
    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)

    (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.

    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,

    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?

    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.
