Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I ran the crucial scan to find out my memory setup. I have 3 1 gig sticks installed. I wanted to put 2 gig in remaining slot and ordered one with specs for ddr2 pc2-6400. Full description of memory I received: "200-pin ddr2 sodimm pc2-6400 cl6" The stick is a little less than 2 and a half inches long. There must be some trick to put it in the long slot that's open. Can you help me? Thanks Robert Shinn

It sounds like you have laptop memory which is much shorter than standard ram. I would take it back and return it. You should have 240 pin ram for a desktop and 200 pin ram in laptop type devices.

Some motherboards are only upgradable to their allotted amount that board may only handle up to 2 gigs of RAM which is a shame. But this is the way it is. That is why I always check the board memory capacity before I buy computer boards or RAM for them. The beeps indicate error on the slots for the RAM that is why you can start up when you remove ram one at a time and replace. So use the allotted amount of RAM for that board specification or get another mother board that can handle more than 2 gigs of RAM. Sorry for the loss. Thanks for using FixYa! John

How can the bios be updated?


I recommend that you go to the Crucial website and perform the automatic scan function. This will identify your machine and tell you what upgrades are available, taking into account what memory the machine already has and the maximum that the chipset can support.

URL for the site is:

http://www.crucial.com/uk/?gclid=CKH544TNwKACFYKX2AodwRDGSw&cpe=pd_google_uk

or if that does not work just google 'crucial memory scan'

I got a emachines T1120 desktop pc it have 512 memory all i want to know if i can put 2 512 memory in it will it work?


The easiest way to see what kind of memory and the amount of memory your computer can handle is to go to the Crucial Memory website (www.crucial.com) and click on the Scan my System. It will tell you the number of slots your system has, the capacity of each slot, and the type and speed of RAM that can be used.

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.

RAM DDR2 PC 1300


DDR 2 will _not_ work the way it's supposed to in a DDR slot, if at all. If you want to see what memory your computer can use, go to crucial.com or similar website for a free scan of your computer. From the spec. sheet it looks like your machine takes a maximum of 2 sticks of 1 gig each (for a total of 2 gigs) DDR SDRAM, either 333 or 400MHz of memory

2 gig ram stick


Absolutely, 2 Gigs stick of RAM exist. Unfortunately your motherboard's maximum memory supported is 2GB. This site specifies very clearly 1 gig stick max per slot:
