Tip

Ram upgrades


This is a tip explaining exactly what you should keep in mind when you want to upgrade your ram modules in your Desktop computer. This will also act as a guide which will give you step by step instructions on how to replace the ram module.

Firstly, before we start buying, we need to be sure that the upgraded ram modules are compatible with your motherboard. Here are a couple of tips you need to keep in mind.



Frequency:

You need to have a look at the frequency of the ram you are using at the moment, as well as the supported frequency of your motherboard. If your motherboard is compatible with a higher ram frequency than your current ram, you can use the frequency which the motherboard stated as maximum for optimum performance. Remember, if yu want to add ram modules, all ram will be downgraded to the ram with the lowest frequency.

Ram model:

You need to know if you are using DDR, DDR1, DDR2, DDR3 ram, some motherboards supports both DDR2 and DDR3. If your motherboard does not support a certain model, it will not fit in the slot on the motherboard, hence, it will be useless. Thus, you need to have a look at the ram model supported by your motherboard.

Latency:

Lastly, you need to have a look at the latency of the ram. The lower the latency, the better the performance.

After you have bought the new upgraded ram modules, we can install them. The following steps will guide you through the installation process.

Step 1

Shut down your computer and unplug all cables. Also, you need to take of the side panel of your computer. Remember to stay grounded at all times when you start working with the hardware of your computer.

Step 2

The second step will be to either take out the current ram modules to upgrade them, or insert the new ram modules into the other available ram slots on the motherboard. Remember to keep yourself grounded at all times while touching the any of the computer hardware. Also, handle the ram at the length end at all times, not at the width end. There will be 2 small hinges on both sides at the base of each ram modules end. You need to pivot the outwards before the ram module can be removed or inserted.

Step 3

The last step will be to screw back the side panel after you have inserted the ram modules(Be sure that you remember to clip back the hinges to ensure that the ram module is places in correctly. Never force the module, line up the ram module with the slot on the motherboard.) Also, plug back all cables into the Computer case, and enjoy your handwork.

My laptop is not turning to on


Seems to be problem in the Ram.
Step 1: Open the back cover where the RAM is located and take out the Ram and clean it with a soft brush and insert it back.(be careful while inserting the Ram coz you might damage it. insert it at an angle of 45 degree.

Step 2: If that didnt work then take out the Ram again and listen if there is and beeb sound. if there is the problem will be with the Ram Try changing a different Ram.
Step 3: If step 2 dosnt show and beeb sound then its obvious that its broblem with the motherboard(northbridge) or the display system.
Try Consulting a pro.

How to troubleshoot a atom motherboard display problem?


Dear sbhrth

Are you sure its motherboard display issue?
Any way please follow these steps,

1)Remove the RAM and clean the leads and again insert it. and start your system.
2)If there is a beep sound then it will be due to the problem of RAM. Then you have to change the RAM.

3)If you are sure that your RAM is perfect, and the display is not coming, Then get a pci display card and insert it into PCI slot and connect the monitor to this output. and Start your system. If the display is correct then the problem is with your motherboard display. Better to use the display card itself.

I have a motherboard called d102ggc2 with max 2 GB capacity. I recently tried upgrading from 1 GB ram to 2 GB ram by adding another 1 GB stick. The problem is that both the sticks are not working together...


Sounds like the second RAM stick was placed in the wrong slot. I would suggest checking your motherboard manual to determine this. Some motherboard designs have unusual slot arrangements.

Please help me to identify my problem


The system beeps when you remove the RAM. This means that POST is working correctly and the motherboard may be fine.

Check that the monitor cable connector that connects to the video card isn't loosely connected.

When you insert the RAM, there's no display. This may mean that the RAM is detected but still faulty. Try using another RAM, if you can. Also remove the Video card (if you have a separate video card). Then, re-insert it firmly, and power up the system once again.

If you don't have a separate video card, you should test the motherboard on the bench, that is outside the computer case. Remove the motherboard, RAM and power supply (and the video card if it's separate). Put it on the bench and power it up as shown here:
http://picasaweb.google.com/raspal.century/MotherboardOnBench#

You'd need to closely look on the motherboard to see which pins are for the power switch (marked as PW-SW, PWR, PWR-SW, PWR-ON etc). Then, short them with a screw driver, for a second, to turn the system ON.

Replace the RAM and the video card one by one, if the system doesn't give any display even on the bench. This way you can find out what is the problem.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

First, verify whether the Power Ram in the Switch Mode Power Supply i.e. SMPS is open. Replace it. Then, next step is whether the fuse inside the Mother Board has blown. If so, replace it with a new one. Normally, the Motherboard is affected with other two problems.
