The Crucial website has the compatible RAM for this system, and they have Dell's full specs on your desktop. If you are trying another brand you might have an incompatible stick of RAM.
Some PC's are very finicky about what RAM will work with them.
Here is the site (complete with price list) for your model.

If you are hesitant about buying another module, you might also want to test the module in another PC or try a different 1GB module in your computer.

Try re-installing the two new sticks two or three times. Sometimes there is a little build up of oxides on the contacts on the motherboard and keeps the bios from properly recognizing them.

If you have the additonal memory in the system correctly, it should be recognized.
Attempt to boot the system with just the new stick in. If it boots you most likely have a motherboard issue. If it doesn't, it's just a bad stick of memory and I suggest just getting a new one.

Installed 2GB of RAM (2x1GB). Laptop only recognizing 1GB. How do I get Sony Vaio VGN FS 760 to recognize 100% of RAM?


Sony VAIO VGN-FS 760/W supports PC-3200 400MHz and PC2-4200 533MHz DDR2 RAM
Expandable up to 2GB. Please make sure that both RAM Chips are according to the above specification, compatible with yout system and both sticks are the same (make & bus speed). Try using one RAM at a time and swaping RAM slots to see if the amount of memory is shown correctly. Memory is not recognized only when it is not up to the specifiction. If the RAM sticks are ok, the system shoud recognize them.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Good Luck!
Hope this helps!

Dell latitude wont read 256 megs of ram only 128


The c600 can handle up to 512MB of RAM, so it's likely one of your RAM sticks is bad or not seated correctly. Are you using two 128MB sticks? Remove the stick from the second slot and turn on the computer with only one stick installed, and see if the RAM is recognized. Then take that RAM out and try the computer with only the other RAM stick -- if either is not recognized, that stick is bad.

If both are recognized, try reinstalling both RAM sticks and see if the computer will recognize them. If not, make sure they are both seated properly. You may have a problem with the second RAM slot if it is still not recognized. If you have access to other RAM, try that too and see if it is recognized.

RAM Slot does not recognize more than 512MB ( 184 )


Consider updating your motherboard bios.

Also make sure that your memory is correct for this system:


- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB DDR or 2GB SDRAM
- DDR x 2, DDR266/200 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- SDRAM x 2, PC133/100 non-ECC, un-buffered memory

PI865GM Memory issue


I cannot find anything in your motherboard manual about a jumper setting to change the RAM frequency. However, the only thing I can find is on the CPU PnP Setup Page in the CMOS setup utility that says DRAM Frequency (currently set to auto).. Perhaps you can try changing this to 400MHZ (if the option is available).

There may be a jumper setting somewhere, but without a proper photo of the motherboard, or a better manual, I cannot find it...

Compaq Presario M2000 PC Notebook


The Bios on the laptop motherboard only will recognize a total of 1gig Ram. So the 256 stick would be removed and 2- 512 sticks installed.
