Problem upgrading RAM on a Sate Pro 4600

Hi,

I am trying to upgrade the momery from 2x 128M RAM to 2x 256M RAM on my wife's old Sate Pro 4600, but the laptop does not want to take it. It makes a beep sound, then shows the message "remove the incompatible memory in slot 1 (or 2)".

I do not understand... I double checked the 256M RAMs are PC100, SODIM. Exactly the same as the two 128M in the slots.

I tried adding one RAM and both at the same time, same problem. I checked and know the max. memory is 512M.

Kindly help!

    Hi Pyrhyc,



    Thanks for your response...



    Yes, I tried 256 chip individually, actually three different 256 chips. And I tried two at the same time. Same problem...



    I am running XP Pro and no I have not done any drive, utilities and bios updates.



    Thank you!

Just a few questions first, get back to me (before rating me), and I'll see if I can get you through this. You have tried each 256 chip individually in each slot with the same error, correct? Are the 256 chip the same make? What operating system are you running? And finally, at least for now, have you done any drive, utilities, or bios firmware updates lately?

Install windows xp


As it only has 128M of RAM, Win7 needs 2Gb so no. XP needs 256M of RAM or the program will struggle.

Im trying to fix up my wife's Dell Inspiron B130 instead of buying a new computer. what is the best processor, and video card upgrade i can do?


You don't want to upgrade the cpu. As for the video card it can't be changed as its build into the laptop motherboard.

I would highly recommend that you instead upgrade the ram memory on the laptop since it will give you a bigger performance increase than a new cpu or video card.

The machine only has 256MB of ram, get atleast 512MB or 1024 /1gb of ram and it will work much better.

You have to remove the keyboard, under the keyboard to the left is a heat shield (silver metal cover), remove it. Your ram is located there. Just take your time and remember where the screws go.
