If you put your old memory in and boot into bios setup and go to default or fail safe settings that should work then get the right memory that u need and install as usual

If you have correctly set the CPU in the BIOS, and saved the settings and still get the error, the CPU is not compatible with your system.

Most likely you have not set the BIOS right or have not saved it.

Acer aspire t 160 wont boot after ram installation


When purchasing RAM make sure ram modules are of the same brand any type
IE corsair ddr3 low density or hynix high density ddr2 you should always try to keep the same brand and type of ram
reason being the compatibility issue

and always place the largest ram module closest the CPU central processing unit

also check the ram sockets for dust and make sure the ram modules are securely seated you can do this by pressing the levers at either end of the ram sockets.


If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the

Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.


First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system.


You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.

You could put the old ram back in your computer and see if it starts then you will know if its the ram.


Hope this helps.

Cmos Checksum Error


Check CMOS and Memory Modules:::If the error message is "UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP," then it indicates you have problem with the memory of your computer. You need to check whether the SIMMs (Single Inline Memory Modules) are compatible and have the same speed. Secondly, also check whether you have set the CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) to the right amount of RAM. If these solutions do not work, you might have to replace memory in your computer....try to use system utility tool like Reginout.. Hope the problem is resolved.
