Gateway M-6823 Notebook memory

I tried to upgrade the memory on my m6823 from 2-512's to 2-1gb chips. All chips are good but it will not boot if a 1gb chip is in slot 1. Any ideas?

    Thanks for trying, but those are the specs for this laptop as delivered, it supports up to 4 gig and I had put the same "crucial" 2gig kit in another m6823 and booted with NO problem.

I put a 2gb ddr2-667 memory chip in the single (only) memory slot in my gateway nx100x notebook pc. The pc will not boot up with the 2gb memory card. Is there a compatibility problem or do I have a ba

yes, there may be compatibility problem. your 2GB ram may be dead. try your 2gb ram on other notebooks. if it is working on other notebooks, then your ram is ok. your notebook will support maximum 2GB ddr2 memory per slot. your notebook may not be booting due to unsupported frequency of your ram. maximum supported frequency for your notebook may me 400Mhz, and you are putting a 667MHz ram into it. try to put a 400MHz 2GB ddr2 ram in your notebook.

3 long beeps on bootup,black screen,gateway atxeg lx3 700s po4

This is an indication that there is a memory issue. Reseat the memory in the computer and try again. If this fails and you have two or more sticks of memory, try just one in a slot at a time. Hope fully one chip will fail and you have found your bad memory chip. If all chips fail in one slot, try the other, this would incate a bad slot on the mother board.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

I have the Gateway 510G. It will no longer boot. When I press the "On" button, both lights (power and system) light up for about 5-10 seconds and unit then turns off. I've cleaned the inside with air. ...

Try opening the case and "reseating" the RAM (memory). Remove all memory and try to boot. If that works, shut down and add a RAM chip into RAM Slot 1 and try to boot. If that works, add another chip, and so on. It is not impossible for 1 RAM chip to be fried. Also, if you have more than one hard drive hooked up to the PC, try booting with only the boot drive (OS drive). If that works, maybe a slave drive is fried. Good luck.

Check your power supply, if the supply is good, then check the adaptor on the side of unit.
Do you have a power light when plugged in ?
Does the power supply have a light ?
Also you may try removing the battery and try to power up.

Gateway 7405gx boot failure

Hi Dan -

On this particular Gateway series of laptops, there is actually a bios "chip" you can replace entirely. It's sitting in a cradle right next to where the keyboard connects to the mobo (square black chip, one angled corner). It's very easy to pop out and replace, and is definitely something I would try.

You can do a search on eBay for "gateway bios chip" and you should have some luck.

I hope all goes well.

I want to know if I can upgrade the harddrive and memory

Depending on the memory you already have you can install upto a maximum of 1GB 266MHZ DDR, and cannot see any reason for not being able to upgrade your hardrive for a bigger one, but be aware that the Operating system backup will probably be on a seperate partition on your current hardrive, unless you got an installation cd with your laptop.
