I have read many posts about the PB Imedia and problems trying to upgrade memory. Sounds like there are some motherboard issues with this PC . Some have reported success with mixing different memory types and speeds, but no real answers as to why.

You may have to check the voltage that powers the memory. Some memory sticks are rated at 1.8v , others use other voltages that will hang your system if mixed.

Check with the manufacturer for their recommendation.

Hello, I was looking to upgrade the ram in my old dell 5150. The specs say you can use a Max of 4 1 gig sticks yet these specs where released prior to windows 7 ultimate which uses far more ram. What are...


Check www.crucial.com. Use the downloadable program to analyze your system or use the interactive menu system to explore your options.

Check online forums using google searches for terms like 'dell 5150 memory upgrade'. Sometimes, the maximum in the manual is not the real maximum. My Dimension 1000 laptop accepted a certain 1 GB card when the manual said the max was 256MB. Still running it after nearly ten years. The laptop was **** with 512MB (256 built-in and 256 add-on card) but the gf uses it every day.

Can I put two gig of ram in a packard bell imedia 5114 even though it says one gig is the the max thank you


You can try, but instead of purchasing it rather take your PC to a computer shop and tell them that you would like to install 2GB of RAM, would they please see if it would work. If it works then you can purchase it and if it doesn't then you wouldn't have wasted your time and money on some-thing that you have no use for.

Happy upgrade, all the best!

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 problem


Kamel,
First of all you should know howmuch maxim RAM your board will support and which type of DIMM's it accepts. You can see on your motherboard manufacturer's site.

  1. Try each on in all slots one by one to verify all slots are well. if not try to clean and check again.
  2. If its ok then put both together and check out, if not then try to change the place and clean the contact point as well.

Thanks
Iqbal
