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.

Re: Problem upgrading RAM on a Sate Pro 4600
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?
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

wrong parts, its not support by chipset
One of the following
2-GB DDR Synch Dram PC3200 (400-MHz) Non ECC (2x 1GB)
Memory Speed Supported DDR Synch DRAM PC3200 (400MHz) non-ECC Product documentation
I cannot directly answer that question because you did not supply the motherboard model number. You will have to look this up yourself, here is the url for Mercury support http://www.mercury-pc.com/downloads.php
The model number is usually printed on the motherboard, find it and you can download the manual, specs and drivers.

1st: is it still under warrentee? if so, it needs to be done by a certified technician otherwise you may void the warrentee.
If not, look at the manual and see what RAM/Memory the Motherboard will support.

ive found the best prices at tigerdirect.com and they ship it right to your door. make sure the tiger ppl have the exact match and dont replace your order with more expensive replacements as some of these substitutions require voltages that your motherboard CAN NOT produce and will not work.. you also want to make sure to buy low density ram, it performs better, is a few bucks more than high density, but worth EVERY penny. E-bay is notorious for selling cheap high density ram on thier site.
If you stick to the list above, you shouldnt have any issues.
This should fixya up! please rate...
