Trying to help a buddy upgrade his gateway esx 500s memory as he only has 256mb, is there a limit to how much mem this comp can take or can i install 2GB 2x1GB PC2100 ECC REG MEMORY (CM12872ERX22100DI


Hi Steve Handel II,
Yes that machine has limited RAM capacity, that model can go up to 1GB of RAM total (2x512MB DIMMs.) It takes DDR PC2700, CL=2.5 unbuffered, non-ECC DDR333 memory chips. The good news is you can get them for $10-$20 most anywhere. Like HERE

Good Luck
Mark

What is the maximum memory capacity for the MX6027 model ?


Hello Marc,

The maximum is 1 GB. Standard, it comes installed with 256 MB but you upgrade with additional 256 MB or 512 MB memory modules. The modules you are looking for are:

256 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC
512 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC

There are lots of places on the web to find decent prices for this memory. I have included a few below.

http://www.memorystock.com/memory/GatewayMX6027.html

http://www.pcmemorystore.com/Gateway-M_Series_Notebooks-MX6027-ram.htm

http://www.computermemoryoutlet.com/Gateway-M_Series_Notebooks-MX6030-memory.htm

This document includes instructions for replacing the memory. It's a simple straightforward process.

I have a Bushnell trailscout 119900 and it wont accept any other SD card but the one that came with it. The one that came with it is only a 512 MB chip card The ones I have been trying to use are 2 GB SD...


Probably the first thing to try is formatting the card. There should be a function in the setup menus to do this. If it won't format or gives an error when you try the card may be incompatible. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. Some cameras have a capacity limit, and won't work with cards that are too large (in memory terms).

I bought from Gateway to double my ram ( 512 to 1024 ) and now my ram has gone back to 512. How can I find out which chips or whatever they are called have gone dead, the original or the newer Gateway?


Turn the power off. Swap out the memory cards putting one bank of memory in at a time. If the computer doesn't boot up after the swap, chances are that is the bad memory card.

Sdram capacity


its that 512 mb total capacity for your computer memory?? if so read this:
To find the total amount of RAM that can be added , subtract the amount of RAM currently in the computer from the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold. For example, a computer has 256 MB of RAM. If the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold is 512 MB, then 256 MB is the amount of RAM that can be added. this info from the HP website , to find out more , go to http://www.hp.com/support , enter the model number , and look for more information about your computer specs, hope this helps , please rate & thanks AJ
