Question about Garmin nuvi 205W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I lost my manual and was curious about the slot on the left side. Looks like a memory chip of some sort can go in there. What is this for? Also when I'm entering in a street address or a point of interest I can't seem to find a space key so all my names have to be 1 word (bath&body) or half the name (bath.......) And I just hope it will find it. How can I make spaces between words? Thank you

The slot is for a microSD memory card (or an SD card on some models). To add a space between words, press the on-screen key that looks like a sideways square bracket (or underscore with two vertical tabs). It is to the right of the M (at least on the English version of the keypad).

The memory card will let you store more POI and routes than the internal memory can support. Then when full, you can just put in another microSD card for more memory.

The manuals for the Garmin nuvi 205w are available here: http://www8.garmin.com/products/manual.jsp?product=010-00718-40 .

I hope this helps.

I have a dell inspiron 545. I lost my display and the computer now beeps four times, pauses and beeps four more times. Can you tell me what happened to my computer?


This is normally a memory error. Turn off the computer, and open the side of the case. Pull and re-seat all memory chips. Turn power on, if it still beeps. Turn off power, pull all the memory chips and re-seat one only. Turn on power if it beeps againg, pull the chip out and try the other one. Repeat for all chips. If you find any that do not cause the beep issue, you have found your bad memory chip. If not, try the same one at a time memory test in a different slot on the computer. If no beeps, then its a bad slot and dont use that memory slot.

If none of this works; as unlikely as it seems you could have all bad memory chips, or a bad mother board.

How to add or change DDR2 Memory Compaq Presario SR5110 desktop computer


Just remove the power cord, open the case, turn the computer on it's side and you will see the memory sitting in the slots. Push down on the latches on both ends of the memory slot and then you can pull the memory out.

Be sure to replace it with compatible memory or it will not boot up. Also it you install more than your system will hold, it will not register the excess.

Try 4 All Memory website. It will tell the type, how many slots you have and the maximum amount of memory it can hold.

http://www.4allmemory.com

It looks like your system uses DDR2-PC2-5300 Memory. It has 2 slots and a total capacity of 4GB which means each slot can hold a 2GB chip.

Diagram of t2878


Diagram? I don't quite follow. However let me post this information to see if it qualifies as what you seek.

1) The eMachines T2878 Desktop PC uses an FIC AU31 motherboard. Also known as K7M-NF18G.
(FIC is First International Computer {Inc)

This is a link to a free motherboard manual, for the FIC AU31 motherboard,

http://www.elhvb.com/mboards/OEM/eMachines/manuals/index.html

5th file down on the left side. Click right on AU31

This is a Zip file. (A Zip file is used to send large amounts of information)
Click on the circle to the left of Save File, if there is no green dot in it.
Now click on OK.

A small window will come up on the left.
In the wording at the top of this small window, will tell you where the file will download to.

It may have Desktop, or MY Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.
You may wish to write it down.

Desktop:
The zip file will be on your desktop screen

My Documents:
Click on Start, then on My Documents

Downloads:
Click on Start, then on My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click on it.
(Yellow folder icon with a zipper on it, and AU31_manual next to it)

On the far left at the top, click on Extract all files.

Now click on Next, Next, and Finish.

After you click on Finish you will see the file name next to a red Adobe PDF icon. DOUBLE-click on it.
There is the motherboard manual in PDF file form.

2) Motherboard Diagram; (Pertaining to the technology used for your eMachines T2878 computer),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
Supports the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

Note*
AGP and PCI Express are High-speed graphics.

A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics, is NOT high-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
The PCI bus, IDE bus, SATA bus, USB, Ethernet, and Audio. (Sound)

3) The FIC AU31 motherboard uses an Nvidia nForce 2 motherboard chipset,

http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=AU31-WB&cat=MBB

Nvidia nForce 2 IGP for the Northbridge chip, and Nvidia nForce 2 MCP-T for the Southbridge chip.

Click on the motherboard photo to enlarge.
The white square socket at the top is the Processor socket.
(Socket A. Also known as Socket 462)

Under the Processor socket is a black Heatsink. Looks similar to a meat tenderizer. Underneath this heatsink is the Northbridge chip.
(The heatsink is glued to the Northbridge chip with a type of thermal glue)

The Southbridge chipset is under the ram memory slots. The large square chipset. (To the right of the white PCI slots, and to the left of the CMOS battery)

Specifications of the Nvidia nForce 2 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#nForce2

4) Basic layout of the FIC AU31 motherboard;

A) The three long white expansion slots at the bottom, are PCI slots

B) The shorter brown expansion slot above them, is a graphics expansion slot.
It is AGP, and 8X. (AGP 8X)
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards.

C) The two long Black slots to the upper right are Ram Memory slots.
Slot 1 (DIMM 1) is the slot closest to the Processor.

If you just use one ram memory module ('Stick'), it MUST be installed in Slot 1.
(Supports DDR Sdram ram memory at either 200MegaHertz, or 266MHz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz. This is PC1600, PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200, respectively)

D) The white connector socket to the immediate right of the ram memory slots, and has two rows of 10 socket holes, is a 20-pin ATX main power cable connector.

E) To the right of the 20-pin ATX main power cable connector, is the blue 40-pin IDE connector for the Harddrive.
(39-pin actually. One pins is omitted. Uses a flat ribbon cable)

F) Above the harddrive connector is a 34-pin Floppy Drive connector. It is black in color.

G) To the left of the Floppy Drive connector is the optical drive connector.
(Also 40-pin)

H) Uses a Realtek ALC650E audio chipset

I) Uses a Realtek RTL8201BL Ethernet chipset

Where are the memory slots


On the bottom of the laptop there should be a couple panels with icons. Look for one that looks like a rectangular ghost from Pac-man. That's where the memory slots are.

I have an IBM NetVista PC model #830781U and want to install additional memory...1GB chip... How do I do it??


Ok, first of all before installing the ram, you want to make sure the ram you are installing into your computer if the motherboard support the type of ram chip you are installing it in. For your model it is ddr184 pin After this, you can take out your case panel which is the left side by unscrewing the 2 screws in the backside of the panel. Carefully take the panel apart from the computer and set it aside. What you want to located is the RAM slot on your motherboard which typically is 2 slot next to the cpu which has the big fan. Most likely one of the slot or both of the slot is already accompanied by the old memory chip. There are two hinges one on each side, bottom and top. Push these pins down and it would loosen up the memory chip that is already installed on. Replace the new memory chip and make sure you align the golden tooth pins extacly to the memory socket and then push down on the chip until it clicks. Test your computer if it works, if not. You computer may not support the memory chip.

I am attempting to put 2 gigabytes of memory into Hp Pavilion a12


What is the Brand name and the model #? on most computers, you should be able to pull the panel on the side of the tower off. it is usually on the left side. Sometimes there is a tab in the back to pull or two screws in the back you remove in order to remove this panel. Once the panel is off, You should see one or more slots where the memory chip will fit in. On each slot, there will be a tab on each end. push the tabs away from the slot so that the memory chip will fit in the slot. After inserting the memory chip, the tabs should automatically close to lock the chip in. If they dont, make sure the memory chips are pushed in all the way and push the tabs in manually. Then put the panel back on the side and start the computer. Never do this while the computer is running! Also, If you have to use a screwdriver, DO NOT USE ONE THAT IS MAGNETIC!! this can really screw your computer up.

Can I add 1GB memory chip in 2nd slot with a 512MB chip in 1st?


You can upgrade by inserting a 1GB PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM. I would put the 1MB in the first slot and move the 512MB chip to the second slot.
The 1GB should cost around $40.

I have a packard bell computer - Imedia 1328, and have purchased a memory mod. 512MB DDR PC3200. How do I install it. IN easy step by step instructions for a silver surfer, please.


assuming you bought the right memory chip...

power down the computer. Unplug the power cord from the case. You can leave the other cables attached as long as you have room to work. Open the case. There should be a couple of Phillips screws on the back edge to release the side panel. Once you can see inside the pc, you will see all sorts of cards and cables. Blow out any dust bunnies. Find the empty slot next to a card that looks just like the one you bought. Don't touch the metal contacts on the memory chip. Notice the notch on the edge of the chip and the matching notch in the empty slot on the computer. Gently, but firmly push the memory chip into the slot. It should give a little click.

Plug in the power cord, reboot computer.
