Recently bought a 1GB Memory Unit from Kingston Check compatablity in stuff-Uk.net and was confirm that this would be the correct unit i have been running the unit along side the existing Unit purchased within the laptop however a couple of days ago the memory in the secondary slot stopped working i removed the secondary stick and the machine runs on 1gb but this is no where near good enough the machine gets battered on a 1gb memory as it has Vista Home Basic. i have updated my Bios and checked all the drivers and i'm upto date. could the slot need cleaning after just 2 months?

5 beeps = Pre-video memory error which means that the northbridge on the motherboard is faulty. You need a new mobo, this one is dead.

Unit came with 2 256 mem sticks--bought and installed 2 1GB sticks(pc3200,400mhz,84pin,low density,DDR--unit will not boot


The 2 1Gb RAM are either the wrong type or they are incompatible.
Try to use the same brand and speed as the 256 Mb RAM that was installed in your Dell.

Motherboard ESC k8m800-m2 (v1.0A) 2x1Gb RAM


You have to verify the in the motherboard book if the brand name or vendor of your merory stick is compatible with your computer's motherboard, there all written : Kingston, Samsung, micron etc... Check all details if meets your motherboard's model requirements and make the change if necessary.

If all details are correct, check in your motherboard's manual if there is a special configuration to respect (in withc bank you should place your memory stick and witch order etc)

I have a abit v17 mobo want to get max ram (2gb) bought kingston value ram from kingston rep said it would work. also have corsair matched memory also was told by rep that it would work. I plug them in and...


Your motherboard supports DDR SDRam I assume the ram sticks you bought fit in the socket correctly and are the right way round?
Try the computer with each ram stick seperately. Just because ram is new doesnt mean its not defective.
What configurations do you have?
Are you using two corsair sticks or two kingston or a mix of both and what models are they?

I have bought a HP550 laptop product code FS328AA. I also bought an extra Kingston 2GB RAM. When I put the extra memory I get the srceen of death. What is wrong?


this means either the memory is corrupt, which is possible even with new units especially if you weren't careful when installing. Or, the memory is the wrong speed. What did you buy 1 2gb?

Memory


you must try reseating the memory as the beep code suggest that the memory are not there or not plugged in properly.

check if you are using the right memory card. If not u need to change them.

Where can I see a picture of how to add memory to Acer Ast180 desktop?


Assuming it's the correct type of memory, plugging it in is all you should need to do. When you turn it on for the first time the BIOS may detect the extra memory and ask you to accept the changes, but if it does just accept them and it should work fine.
