    Raizen,
    Thanks for your response. This is a laptop so it has only 2 memory card sockets. They are stacked. If I put a 2 Gig in the bottom and a 512 in the top, it will not start up. Says it has memory error and even gives the address of the error. If i swap them and put the 512 in the bottom slot and the 2 Gig on top it starts up and shows 2.5 Gig of memory when I check the hardware stats in Vista. It also shows the same error if i try a 1 Gig in the bottom slot. I am wondering if the PC has a problem, not the memory.

HI embreelynn,

just want to check, did you left the top slot open when you put the 2gig in the bottom slot, if you do, I suggest you try it with the 512 in the top slot and the 2gig in the bottom, the reason is that some mobo implements "banking" which means that you'll have to fill in the 1 mem slot before the using 2nd, 3rd and so on.

hope this helps, regards.

Are all memory chips alike? What type do I need to add to this model? I now have 512, want to at least double.


No, not all RAM modules (memory chips) are alike, there are roughly eight different types. Obviously, as this is a laptop, this has laptop RAM, reducing it to three options now. To figure out exactly which type of memory you have, use this tool: http://www.cpuid.com/downloads/cpu-z/1.57.1-setup-en.exe After installation of this bit of software, open it (it should have created a desktop icon) and look under the "Memory" tab on the top (arrow 1) and look at what it says next to "Type" (arrow 2)
es187_0.png
Now that you have this type, you can ask an employee at your local best buy for this type of laptop memory (DDR, DDR2, DDR3), or look on newegg.com for this type of laptop memory. Make sure that you do not get desktop memory, as this will not fit into your laptop's RAM slots. And you're going to want to look for a 1 gig module for doubling a 512. (the bigger the better, just keep in mind that 1 Gigabyte (GB) = 1024 Megabytes (MB))

I hope this helps!

Wont boot 2 windows xp home when 2 gig memory installed,works with 1 gig,tried both slots with both 1 gig sticks.Screen goes black.


Seems the memory is not comatable with the motherboard. Replace the old memory and visit http://www.crucial.com, they have a scanner tool which will confirm what mem can be installed.

    The problem must be the amount of total memory. Maybe the board supports only 1 gig. Chek the manual.

    the memory is dual channel, so you have to use matched memory for it to work 1gig in each slot if possible, check the 1 gigs and 512's to see if they run at the same bus speed, if they are not matched there is your problem try a gig and a 512 in slot 0 to see if it picks the memory up, also there is sometimes an option in the bios to dissable dual mode
