You shouldn't,t have to go into bios at all. Shut the computer off, install the ram, turn on computer. The bios will see the memory automatically.

usually it refer to a power failure or a problem on the mobo. reset the bios; shut off the power, remove all the physical devices on the mobo except the cpu (remove also the ram modules). if it beep and stay on then shut off the power and add a component; if it work shut off and add another and so on. find the faulty item. it can be also the ram not properly set in the bios or other bios parameters. load default bios parameters and try.

If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system

It is impossible to increase the performance of a built-in video card except increasing the video RAM. The more RAM you add the less main RAM will be allocated to the main memory. The reason is the video card uses Shared RAM.
To increase the video RAM go into the BIOS setup - video display - memory allocation.
The best way to improve is to install a video card in the AGP expansion slot, you may need to disable the on-board video in the BIOS.

Acer Aspire M3400 Desktop PC. Memory Upgrade Issue

please check the memory timing settings. if your mixing up ram they may not have the same memory timings and require you to go either higher or to the supported settings that either memory can use. for example if corsair runs at 8-8-8-14 and kingston runs at 10-10-10-16 then you will need to bump the settings to 10-10-10-16 since the computer is trying to set the timings for kingston to 8-8-8-14 which it does not support.

Vostro 200 4 mem slot 512 in 1 and 2. added 1g to 3 and 4. sys info 3 gig installed 1 g avail. Reset change. any ideas????

On this model specs it says it will support up to 4 G of memory on DDR2 up to 800 mhz sure the one you added are no larger than 1 G ..and not exceed 800 mhz ...and if the one you had is on 667 mhz will have to get into bios setting and also set the ones on 800 to be read on 667 mhz ...It should be done that auto ...but for some reason it seams it does not..Anyway ..get into Bios ..and first thing ...try to engageg the optimal factory defaults...(it will be a link ..on the bottom and indicate which function key to press and confirm for that ) ..and also press F10 to save changes and restart ...
After that ..boot it up ..and see if the memory is read check that go just right click on my computer ..and will be there..
Also ..if your video card ..has no memory of it own may take some from the ram ...and the more ram memory you add..the more will get ..if it is capable ....I encoutred computers that were able to get up to 1024 M from the ram memory and use it for the video card .when the ram memory was more than enough ..
Another thing may be the incompatibility ...try to see if the new added one ...the 2 x 1g ...left alone in the slots ..will work ..and be read entirely ..If this is the case ...use just these 2..and get rid of the old ones...The difference in the frequency ..may be to blame ..
Another thing you may do to reinstall the operation system from scratch ...or restore it using the recovery disk or partition .,.if you have such a thing ..and if it contain the operation system as well ...
This will force the memory to be read a a common frequency ..and make it functional if they are new and functional ..

Hi, Hope you can help. I've just fitted a new motherboard to my computer (ASUS crosshair 2 formula). My memory is 2 x 2GB DDR2 running at 800Mhz. Th machine will run fine using either of the sticks, but...

Hi. Asus has a great utility that lets you update your bios even in Windows.

At the download section select your OS and in Utility section find "ASUS Update V7.14.01 Install Program" This program will automatically update your bios.

As for your Ram issue. Did you try each stick in each ram slots ? If you did and saw no issues, then I am only suspescting of incompability between your Rams.

I have an Acer am5100-u5301a. Is there a bios upgrade?

If the specs read that you can operate with 4GB of RAM, then I believe the AMD690g chipset is not the culprit.

The RAM that you're adding may be defective, or incompatible with the existing RAM.

Another possibility could be a bad RAM socket.

I also doubt you would get a black screen due to adding more RAM than the system is capable of handling, it would still start, but would not utilize the additional RAM.

Black screen usually means bad RAM or incompatible RAM or bad socket

I have windows xp 64bit and iam trying to use 2 slots of 2gb memory ddr2 and instead of 4gb memory iam getting as a result 2.43gb how can i solve this? i have an asus pb5

It looks a little low - but two possiblilites... the motherboard's chipset does not support more than 3GB of ram or you have not configured your ram correctly in your BIOS setup.

Restart computer and press whichever key it asks you to so you can go to Setup or BIOS config.

Look in the memory section, advanced chip set section or if necessary just go through all the options until you see the map memory hole... this allows the BIOS to see more memory.

But I think you will find it is your chipset. You could try flashing the BIOS to the latest version --- but that's another story.

Added more ram but it's not working Compaq E500

what did you mean not working ?? didnt see the new Ram memory ?/ or didnt boot at all ....anyway ...when adding new ram memory ..first thing you do is to remove the Bios battery for to let bios on defaults and let it be able to read the new added unit ....second sure the new added ram is compatible and in the same frequency ,then remove the battery like I said and in the last ...reinstall the operating system ....always look at the boot to see if the ram memory that is displayed is the same value with the one you know that actually is installed on the should work if this was just an option to make it faster ...and not a wild guess cause it use to have issues and didnt boot before...
