Hi i know these machines quite well. even though it states that the maximum ram is 4gb . it sometimes will not take it. if you have 667 ram in it change to 666 that usually works. these machines can be fussy now and again.

I did have the same issue - instead I installed 1 x 2gb stick and 1 x 1Gb stick. 3Gb is better than 2Gb anyway so its all good :)

Its not XP it will be the maximum capabilities of the amount of memory the laptop can handle, please refer to manual for max amount, i would suspect 2GB max

Posted on Aug 19, 2008

  • Jon Faulds Jul 08, 2011

    Sandrew - the unit can handle 4Gb Max as I am using Windows 7 64 bit edition on mine and its running without problems seeing the 4Gb. The limitation is most definitely with the XP operating system as it affects various hardware platforms (even units that can take up to 8Gb). Windows XP 32 bit will see no more than 3.5Gb of any available physical memory.

From what I can tell the Dell Precision Workstation 670 does support over 4GB of RAM. However when you have over 4GB of RAM installed in the system you have to have the Memory Cooling Shroud connected to keep the memory cool. Also this is only shipped out when the system is ordered with over 4GB of RAM originally. If you do not have this part you can order it from Dell buy calling 877-671-3355.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Blue screen with 4gb, OK with 3gb of RAM on 6720s laptop Using windows 7 (32 bit) there are 2x slots, but the top slot seems only capable of recognising 1gb of RAM without giving the blue screen at startup...


A 32bit OS and Processor is able to Identify and work with upto 3GB of memory.
That may be the cause of the issue
Even if any computer has more then 3gb of ram it will showup only upto 3gb.
if you install 4gb or more then also it will not show up.

.........and second reason, may the ram that you are using are not identical or one of them is not working properly.
Check the specifications of the ram and also try using one a time.

Thanks and Regards

If you are using the XP or Vista OS, if you are going to install more than 3 GB of Memory then it fails to show up on the computer properties.

Once you install the memory then you may check the BIOS for the memory installed in the system, the BIOS shows the exact amount of memory installed in the system.

You system is capable of 4 GB of RAM.

Toshiba Satellite A215-S7407 ram upgrade


Try to disconnect the new ram you just bought one at the time to see which one is defective. Also, 32 bit operating systems won't detect 4 Gb or ram, but they will show 3 Gb (even though they will use all 4 Gb). To resolve this issue, make sure that if you are using windows Vista to download the latest service pack 1.

SAMSUNG 1GB RAM 400MHZ PC3200


RAM has to be

Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
It has to be the same.


• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
Or
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets
