Here's my issue. Ok i have 2 ram slots. When I have 2 1GB ram cards in the slots the computer registers 2GB ram. When I put in 2GB card and 1GB card, it only registers 2GB RAM. No idea why. I bought this computer for Christmas 2010 so it's about a week old.

The issue may be the ram is not the same like a PC100 will not work with a PC300 ram card but if you have the same like a 2GB DDR2 and a 1GB DDR2 it will work unless your computer can only see 2GB of ram then i cannot help you

When installing RAM modules in newer computers, each bank must have identical modules (hince the dual-channel). The computer is seeing only the first 1GB of the 2GB module to match the 1GB on the 1GB module. You must replace the RAM modules in pairs.

I put a 2gb ddr2-667 memory chip in the single (only) memory slot in my gateway nx100x notebook pc. The pc will not boot up with the 2gb memory card. Is there a compatibility problem or do I have a ba


yes, there may be compatibility problem. your 2GB ram may be dead. try your 2gb ram on other notebooks. if it is working on other notebooks, then your ram is ok. your notebook will support maximum 2GB ddr2 memory per slot. your notebook may not be booting due to unsupported frequency of your ram. maximum supported frequency for your notebook may me 400Mhz, and you are putting a 667MHz ram into it. try to put a 400MHz 2GB ddr2 ram in your notebook.

Lenovo 3000 y410 graphic card upgrade?


Lenovo Y410 System RAM can handle up to 2GB of memory. Since the machine has 2 slots for RAM and you already have 1GB preinstalled with the computer all you need to purchase is another stick of 1GB RAM.

There is no chance of upgrading Graphics card since it doesnt have a video card slot and the preinstalled VCARD is onboard.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.

Cheers~

P5vdc-mx ram displaying 1gb, instead of 2gb in single slot DDR2. FSB 533 MHz, RAM - transcend


Remove the memory card in the motherboard and then clean the pins of the memory card by an eraser of a pencil and then plug it again. Start the computer and see if it works.

Hi I got some new SDRAM cards and put all of them


Each pair of ram stick go in the same color slot (2 x 1 GB in green for example) then the 2 x 512MB go in the other slots (may be pink)
you also need to make sure that your motherboard supports more than 2GB

I put two 2GB RAM in my memory slot and only one is registering, so instead of 4GB RAM, I have 2GB. Why is this and what can I do to get the full 4GB?


ok i checked on your model and it says 2gb RAM max and so it is probably seeing both chips but only seeing 1gb each since that is what the slot is made for..
But to be totally sure you might wqant to check the bios and see what it says since some bios will sometimes give more details as to how many chips are installed.
or take out one chip and turn the computer back on and see if it shows 1gb or 2gb if it shows 1gb with one 2gb chip then you will know that the slot wont read more than 1gb.

P4M800P7MB RS2H Foxconn motherboard and 2G memory upgrade


the 1gb memory modules need to be low-density ie chips on both sides. the motherboard can only recognise 512mb on each side of the memory module.
