Question about E-Machines W6409 (7234) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have an emachines W6409. I can add one DDR2 PC2-5300 1GB (PNY) to either memory slot along with the original 512MB in the other slot and all is well. Also, one of the DDR2 PC2-5300 1GB (PNY) in either slot alone works fine. As soon as I put both DDR2 PC2-5300 1GB (PNY) in, the computer does not boot, the fan just runs at high speed, and the orange hard drive activity light on the front of the case never illumintaes. Display does not receive a signal. Any ideas?

My guess would be that one of the components can not support 2GB's of RAM. Did you try both sticks of RAM one at a time?

EMachine W3507, will not boot after adding 2GB of memory. (2x 1GB; one in each slot). It will boot with one stick, but only if the original 512MG is in slot 1. The 512MB is not recognized.

I don't know your specific model, but some of the Emachines had some memory directly on the motherboard. With the 1Gb and 512Mb sticks installed, boot the machine and report how much memory the system sees. Perhaps the onboard memory is causing you to exceed the 2Gb limit.

Please post the memory size you get here with the above sticks.

Thanks,
Dan

Toshiba satellite A100 slot 2 doesn´t work. A


Is memory matched (DDR2 667)

Have you put original mem in slot 2

Download / install CPU-Z with both modules in and run program to see if it shows.

This is for your laptop from vendors site.

You may have a bad memory stick. If the two are not exactly the same spec they may not be compatible.

Haev you checked that your motherboard is capable of handling 2gb of memory? And that it is the correct type of memory(size and speed) and that you are placing it in the correct slots(ddr2 only goes in ddr2 slots and ddr only works in ddr)

The power supply makes no real difference to memory, replacing that is not a solution

Memory Upgrade problem


You have the correct memory, however, did you replace memory in both available slots with same capacity/clockspeed sticks? The below is from the Spec sheet for your computer.

512MB(min)/2048MB (max), 2 memory slots using 256MB, 512MB, 1024MB or 2048MB PC4200 DDR2 533MHz SDRAM,
dualchannel support requires two memory modules of same capacity and clockspeed

Why won't new PNY DDR memory work in eMachines W4630?


Read your manual, as there website does not offer it just driver downloads.
Also, just because it is the same kind does not mean it will work.
That is why most MFG of motherboards have a quality vendor list
for memory. There are thousands of people who can't get some mfg's memory to work with there systems when the specs are the same.
But I would go with what Ultim said and there might be a slot limit.
