Bought 2 gigs of RAM but Pavillion NY801AV-ABA p6100z doesn't recogize it.


I hope I can help!
Now, without knowing exactly what kind of ram you purchased, I cannot tell you for sure what the problem is, but this is the most likely, and most common problem. That is to say, your computer probably does not support whatever kind of RAM you purchased for it.
There are Multiple kinds of RAM (DDR, DDR2, DDR3 - not including older variations), and many different speeds. Each motherboard in every computer can run only certain kinds of RAM, and supports certain speeds. Sometimes a motherboard will support multiple speeds, but some are more limited.As far as the type, most motherboards will only physically support one type, so that should not be a problem as any other kind simply should not fit. Looking at the specs of your computer, it is also possible that your computer limits the size of a stick of RAM that must be placed in each spot (It looks like you cannot have a stick of less than 2 gigs in any spot). That is probably not the problem as you purchased 2 gigs of RAM. It should also be noted that your computer supports a maximum of 4 gigs of RAM.
All of that being said, the most likely problem is that you accidentally purchased the wrong speed of RAM. Looking at the specs of your computer, the only speed it supports is DDR 2 PC2 - 6400. It would probably be best to return the RAM your purchased and get some DDR2 PC2 - 6400 RAM. If this does not describe your problem, or if there is more to it, please ask!
I hope that helps!

Can I put two gig of ram in a packard bell imedia 5114 even though it says one gig is the the max thank you


You can try, but instead of purchasing it rather take your PC to a computer shop and tell them that you would like to install 2GB of RAM, would they please see if it would work. If it works then you can purchase it and if it doesn't then you wouldn't have wasted your time and money on some-thing that you have no use for.

Happy upgrade, all the best!

Acer 5738 two weeks old, kept keyboard locking, had to turn on & off laptop to be able to use it, now this does not even work, its locked and cannot use it????


Your new laptop would be still under warranty. I suggest you return it to where you purchased it to get it fixed under warranty. If you try to fix it yourself you most likely void your warranty.

I need to add space to my compaq presario desk top. i don't know how to on this computer. the model# SR5034X


If you want to increase cpu speed so you need to increase RAM memory.
You can fix it on motherbord of desktop cpu.
But if you have low space on disk storage partition so you can add space to desktop with 2 method.
(1) you can add harddisk to desktop cpu with sata or IDE .SATA harddisk is best if your motherbord support SATA.
You can add harddisk as you like for example 80 GB or 160 Gb.
(2) If you want to add RAM memory for speed reson you can purchase new RAm and fix it in memory module slot on motherbord.
There is 2 type on
RAM in currently.
DDR1 and DDR2

you can add RAM memory like 512 MB or 1GB or more.

How to Upgrade to max RAM


The Acer Aspire One can be upgraded to a total RAM of 2Gigs. This will allow for you to upgrade to Windows XP Pro and also to Microsoft Office 2003 as there is no version of Office Professional. If you would like more specifics on your particular model, please look here. http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptops/acer-aspire-one-10-inch.aspx?page=3

Upgrading RAM is a fairly simple process. As this is a fairly compact laptop in design, you will have to upgrade to a new 2Gig RAM module and basically discard (or sell) the one you end up removing. In order to find out the type of RAM you'll need, remove the cover as show in the picture and the info for the existing RAM should be written on it.

Good luck!

How to add ram to acer extensa 4620-4908


May I respectfully suggest that you purchase and have it installed by a professional. It might turn out to be a cheaper option. I have seen too many laptops getting damaged by inexperienced "opening", remember there are several types of RAm available now so you have to install the correct type
