Check the configuration of your system, it probably supports 128 MB of RAM at max.

I have intel D845 Mother board with 4 memory (ram) slots one I am using is 256 KB SD RAM & I want to use one 128 KB SD Ram is it possible to use both Thanks.


Hello yeah, you can use both RAMs if they are compatible in terms of bus speed and type like DDR1.
Different types of DRAM modules (eg. DDR200 and DDR266 DIMMs/PC100 and PC133 DIMMs) should not be installed on one motherboard at the same time. This motherboard supports memory modules with capacities of 64/128/256/512MB and 1GB.
Hope this helps

I have an Acer TravelMate 514T PC Notebook running with only 64MB RAM, and I want to put in a 256 MB RAM. How do I make the notebook recognize the 256 MB RAM card?


Mostly what I came across this models they only can detect until 128 mb and they do run a little faster than having 64 mb.And see if the card is pc100. and it is also dependent on what is your operating system is.If your notebook memory slot is two get two 128mb and you'll have 256mb.

1st try to exchange the cards in the slot.
2nd try another card

My Dell C600 won't recognize the 2 new 256 mb sticks of RAM


i think you need a same brand of 256 for it to work? and when you buy something for your computer make sure that the one you both is the same brand or code with your 128 for example you have 128 ddr2 sdram so you can only upgrade it with 256 ddr sdran or 512mb,1gb,2gb ddr sdram.

What are the ram limits on a compaq presario 5000a. I put 256 ram in the compaq and it only reads 128. Why?


You can install up to 3 sticks of 512 mb of memory. Did you add a 256 stick to the already-existing 128? You need to put DDR266/PC2100 memory. To troubleshoot, remove the 128 stick and put your 256 in and see if it is recognized. You will know right away from the bios screen. Memory needs to be the same type.
