The ram went in machine so i replaced it with the right ram and it makes now when i switch on a beep.... beep beep then a paluse then a single beep and it repeats and the compture wont turn on at all


Hello
Completly unplug your pc from the wall.

Open up the case and remove all sticks of ram for a minute.Set aside the new or the ram you replaced.

Put ram back in leaving out the new one.If pc starts and no beeps,then repeat process but this time put in new ram along with old.

Be sure ram is properly seated,ive had this problem myself due to not having the ram in all the way.


Restart pc,if you still have a beep then you either have the wrong ram or it is in the wrong slot.
If there are 4 color coded ram slots say white blue then white blue be sure both sticks are in white or blue slots but not side by side.

Dont forget to plug your pc back in.

Good luck.

When I added ram to my laptop it started running slower. Did I do something wrong?


well there are many different types of speeds for ram, you can have a 1gb ram card but they all have different transfer speeds, so your problem could be that you replaced the ram with a card with a slower transfer speed than the original card had

HP Compaq dx2200 doesn't detect RAM


Go here and supply the info for your system or mboard model to determine which G.Skil module part numbers are listed as compatible with your system or mboard:
http://www.gskill.com/configurator.php
If your system model or mboard model is not listed, or if it is listed but they don't list the module part number(s) you have, there is no way of knowing whether the ram will work properly in your mboard !!.
........
A common thing that can happen with ram, even ram that worked fine previously, is the ram has, or has developed, a poor connection in it's slot(s).
This usually happens a long time after the ram was installed, but it can happen with new ram, or after moving the computer case from one place to another, and I've had even new modules that needed to have their contacts cleaned.
See response 2 in this - try cleaning the contacts on the ram modules, and making sure the modules are properly seated:
http://www.computing.net/hardware/w...
.........
If your ram passes a ram test, it's working fine, even if you can't determine whether it's listed for your mboard or system model anywhere
If you do a ram test, do that AFTER having tried cleaning the contacts and making sure the ram is seated properly - otherwise any errors found may be FALSE.
If the ram is incompatible with the chipset, or on more recent computers, incompatible with the memory controller built into the cpu, it will likely FAIL a ram test - that is NOT a true indication of the ram being faulty - there is probably nothing wrong with it, and it will pass the test if installed in a mboard it is compatible with.
NOTE: Sometimes incompatible modules (or matched pairs) won't work properly when more than one is installed, but will pass when by itself.
........
If you want to try a memory diagnostic utility that takes a lot less time to run a full pass than memtest86 does, this one is pretty good - Microsoft's
Windows Memory Diagnostic:
http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag...
It can be toggled (press T) to do a standard or a more comprehensive set of tests - use the default 6 test one first - if it passes one pass of that, use the latter one. A few of the tests in the latter set are intentionally slower.
If you don't have a floppy drive, see the Quick Start Information at that Microsoft link for how to make a bootable CD of the Windows Memory Diagnostic (you need Windiag.iso - you don't necessarily need to use the program they mention to add it to the CD).
.......
If the part numbers of the ram modules you have ARE listed for you model, and/or in any case. if you STILL get ram errors.....
Some ram manufacturer's modules do not strictly adhere to the JEDEC standards that most mboards bioses use to determine ram settings.
In that case, the ram settings in the bios Setup that the bios has automatically chosen may not be correct.
Check the ram settings in your bios - the ram voltage, and the ram timing numbers - those should be the same as for the specs for the modules themselves. Often the ram voltage and timing numbers are printed on the label on the modules.
If the voltage setting or timings settings in the bios are different from the specs for the ram, change them in the bios. The timing numbers must be as close as you can get to the same, or slower timings (higher numbers = slower) - you won't notice the difference the slower settings make.
If you have a mix of different modules
- don't mix ram that different voltages arespecified for - the bios will force the ram to use the lowest voltage, if "by spd" or similar is used (default settings) - ram that a higher voltage is specified for is more likely to not work properly in that situation.
- the bios settings must be those for the slowest timing settings of all the modules, or slower (higher numbers = slower).
.......
G.Skil is one of the "also ran" ram module manufacturers.
According to The Muskin web site, some "also ran" ram module manufacturers test their ram modules when they're by themselves in a mboard, to get the best (fastest) timing ratings. When you install more than one of their modules, the timing may not work properly with more than one module installed, but if you change the timings in the bios Setup so that the timings are slower (higher numbers) , the ram will work fine.
I have seen several examples of people who posted on this site having to do that with G.Skil ram.

No display or beeps, Tried everythin, and out of ideas


ok, you seem to have covered most of the normal trouble shooting procedures.. Now, you say it beeps when you take all the ram sticks out but does nothing when you fit ram. My first impression is that this is a ram issue. Maybe the ram is not compatible with the board or has been damaged. This can also be the case if the board itself is damaged. It could be that the i/o controller chip may have thrown in the towel and fitting ram causes the board to access this chip. No ram means control passes over to the BIOS error routines and the i/o chip is NOT accessed. Or, it could be both.. Try the ram sticks in another PC first. Static discharge damage is very common, even if you have the anti-static mats etc. I have mats, a wrist strap even my workbench is grounded along with my soldering station etc but I have still damaged boards through static discharge. I have also found that some brands of Ram simply do not work with certain boards so try the ram in another PC first !! Also, make sure that the ram you are using is correct and that you are NOT mixing different sizes or speeds. Next, make sure that non of the USB ports in the case are connected and that the boards own USB ports are not damaged as a bent pin in a port will always cause issues. Sorry that this may not be much help but as I said before, you are covering all the bases, the beeps without ram are making me lean towards a ram issue though..

When powering up I get 2 short beeps and one long one.


The beep code is signifying either improperly seated/ bad ram or improperly seated/ bad video card. Since you replaced the RAM I would say it would be a bad video card. Replace & reboot. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

RAM Upgrade for AcerPower F5


Just to make sure, you are UPgrading the RAM aren't you, it originally has 1GB in it, didn't it? Because i Hate people that change things when it is unnecessary.
But you are right it helps to look at the little label on the RAM you took out as to what kind to get, try to get the same speed will probably guarantee it will work.

I have a GA8ST800 board and I have have been running 256MB ram at 266MHz. I fitted a 512MB ram at 400 MHz. The two together would work fine, even though they were running at 266MHz. I bought two 512MB...


The RAM speed of the new chips is too fast. You need the slower either 266mhz or 333mhz RAM speed to make your system stable again. Hope this helps.

the 1gb memory modules need to be low-density ie chips on both sides. the motherboard can only recognise 512mb on each side of the memory module.
