New RAM for Satellite 1400 won't work

I have tried to upgrade my Satellite 1400 from the original 128mb ram to 1gb with 2x512mb chips. The chips are identical IBM PC133 3.3v SO-DIMM modules brand new in perfect condition. I've tried reseating them and nothing seems to work. I've tried with only one module at a time but still nothing. When I turn the computer on I hear one long beep and then two short beeps with one module and with both I hear one long, two short, one long and one short beep. When I put the 128mb module back in, it boots fine. All guides I have read, even from Toshiba, say that the maximum ram the system can handle is 1gb in the form of 2x512mb modules in each slot.
Any help appreciated.

Hi this problem has arisen on both desktops as well as laptops, the reason for it is quite simple. a lot of the RAM available on the market now is HIGH DENSITY RAM and unless your satellite is specificaly designed to run high density RAM it will not recognize it.
You will find all the major RAM brands are low density and will work fine. A brand like Kingston is an ideal option.

Trying to help a buddy upgrade his gateway esx 500s memory as he only has 256mb, is there a limit to how much mem this comp can take or can i install 2GB 2x1GB PC2100 ECC REG MEMORY (CM12872ERX22100DI


Hi Steve Handel II,
Yes that machine has limited RAM capacity, that model can go up to 1GB of RAM total (2x512MB DIMMs.) It takes DDR PC2700, CL=2.5 unbuffered, non-ECC DDR333 memory chips. The good news is you can get them for $10-$20 most anywhere. Like HERE

Good Luck

I have recently upgraded my brothers Acer T180 computer with approved crucial 2 x 1GB ram ddr2 PC2-5300 667 NON ECC UNBUFFERED CL5 which was scanned by the crucial website and purchased from them. When the...


Some motherboards are only upgradable to their allotted amount that board may only handle up to 2 gigs of RAM which is a shame. But this is the way it is. That is why I always check the board memory capacity before I buy computer boards or RAM for them. The beeps indicate error on the slots for the RAM that is why you can start up when you remove ram one at a time and replace. So use the allotted amount of RAM for that board specification or get another mother board that can handle more than 2 gigs of RAM. Sorry for the loss. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Can I upgrade memory to only one gb of memory or install 2 512 mb on a toshiba satellite m35x series


http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Toshiba-Toshiba-Satellite-Notebook-PC-M35X-S114

Looking at the specs, the max is 2gb for your Toshiba. According to this website, its only a 256mb ddr sdram. So my guess is you only have 1 slot for the ram. I'd go with a 2gb ram if you can afford it, 1gb just don't cut it in todays technology.

I believe its the PC2700 model, so find a 1gb or 2gb PC2700 @ 333mhz and you should be set.

New ram memory on dell dimension celeron trying to


You should check with the folks at Dell since whoever wrote their technical manuals for this machine can't do basic math. There are 2 memory slots and each can handle a maximum capacity of 512MB, yet they claim the maximum capacity for the machine is 2GB instead of 1GB. Using 512MB modules would probably work.

You might want to go to the computer manufacturers web site and see if they have a list of error codes for you computer. If not, you might also try to do a Google search for error codes pertaining to your particular computer.

If you can't find a list of error codes, keep in mind that some computers can be very finicky about the type of RAM that is installed. If you haven't already, check to make sure that the RAM you are trying to install is 100% compatible with the computer that you have. If so, you might try installing the RAM one stick at a time and rebooting with each chip individually. This will help to determine whether one of the chips might be bad or not. If the RAM is 100% compatible - AND - it will not boot with a single stick installed, there is a distinct possibility that all of the RAM sticks could be bad.

This model laptop will not allow you to add a video card to it. The video card and all of its components are part of the Laptop motherboard already.

You can, however upgrade your memory from the 1GB up to a total of 2GB, but your current configuration is 2x512mb chips.

So right now you have 2 memory slots available but they are being used by the 2 512mb chips. You will have to remove them and replace them with 2 1gb chips. This can be fairly pricey.

Here is a link to your computer specs
