Adding memory to my Gateway M675 - problem with new card

My manual says that my model will use either a pc2700 or pc3200 module. I purchased 2 pc3200 1g modules and received them in the mail today. They don't fit!!! The notch is off on both just enough so the they won't slide in. Any ideas?? Should I have purchased the pc2700 instead? I called their support and they couldn't tell me anything:(.
Thanks!

Both DDR and DDR2 come in pc3200. You bought DDR2 when you needed DDR.

What is the maximum memory capacity for the MX6027 model ?


Hello Marc,

The maximum is 1 GB. Standard, it comes installed with 256 MB but you upgrade with additional 256 MB or 512 MB memory modules. The modules you are looking for are:

256 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC
512 MB DDR (1 x 256 MB) SODIMM (PC2700) 2.5v SYNC

There are lots of places on the web to find decent prices for this memory. I have included a few below.

This document includes instructions for replacing the memory. It's a simple straightforward process.

How much ram can I install on my Averatec 2200?


The ram maxes out at 2GB. There is only one memory slot, so you would need a 2GB memory stick. Hope this helps.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A10-S129. It was working with 256 MB (2 x 128 MB). I wanted to upgrade it to 512 MB (2 x 256 MB). I bought 2 new 256 Modules and when changed it and turned on screen has...


If you get several beeps then there is a video problem. The video card uses shared RAM (part of the main RAM) and if the RAM is faulty the laptop won't boot up.
You might have incompatible RAM, try to use the same make and speed RAM as the original.
One of the RAM modules may be faulty.
Try installing one 256Mb RAM module then boot up the Toshiba, if it works the try the other RAM module.

CAN I INSTALL DDR2 MEMORY OR DO I HAVE TO USE THE DDR TYPE FOR HP PAVILION DV5215US


Your unit uses:
DDR memory with support for DDR PC3200, DDR PC2700 speeds.

Because DDR memory is backward-compatible, you can safely upgrade your system with any of the guaranteed-compatible DDR speeds listed below, even if your manual calls for PC1600 or PC2100 speeds.


Each memory slot can hold DDR PC3200, DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

Change ram from 512 to 1 gig bios cannot read added ram


The original 2 sticks of 256 Mb of RAM gives you a total of 512
Mb of RAM. Two 512 Mb of RAM gives you a total of 1 Gb of RAM.
With two sticks of 512 Mb of RAM are you sure you got a total of 192 Mb of RAM, this is a lot less than the original RAM total of 512 Mb?
Should this be 1920 Mb of RAM?
If this 192 Mb is correct then the RAM modules are either not compatible with the laptop or if the RAM modules are not from the same manufacturer then they may not work together.

Most laptops have video cards that use part of the main RAM for video RAM, that is why the available RAM is less than the installed RAM modules. The amount of RAM the video card grabs depends upon the type of video card and in some cases the amount of video RAM can controlled in the BIOS setting.

Adding memory to a a75-s211


How much memory did it have before you removed the 256Mb RAM?
If it had 756Mb RAM then the memory in the laptop has 512 Mb plus 256 Mb RAM modules, the 256Mb in the slot you can see and possibly 512Mb in a slot under the keyboard or soldered on the motherboard.
Therefore by removing the 256Mb and replacing with 1Gb memory module will give you a total of 1.5Gb

With the power not staying on, its a motherboard problem. Try another ac adapter just to be sure just to rule out a faulty ac adaptor.

DEAD GATEWAY M675


its most probably a RAM gone bad. try taking out one of the ram modules and check to see which RAM slot or RAM module is acting up (mine was the ram slot 1 which suddenly stopped working). Or if your using pc3200 try replacing it with pc2700

also since u have opened up anyway try to do some cleaning

1. open up the fans and clean it- lots of dust and gunk in there
2. take off the cpu heatsink, clean it and put on a fresh coating of thermal paste

M675 Notebook Wireless Problem


yeppers..those are simply receivers, and sometimes, after a period of time, and vibration, and shock, they just lose some of their ability to tune into a signal. I've seen it in net cafes and inside wireless nodes too.

got backup for your Gateway?
