Consult your mainboard manual for memory compatibility. You can find slots for RAM in your mainboard, usually oriented vertically. Just remove the existing memory (unhook the ends) and see to it that the notch in your new memory coincides with the projection in the memory slot. Hold the new memory modules by the edges and make sure you hear the "click" (it gets hooked at the oposite ends) indicating the memory modules are properly settled. All these must be done with your computer unplugged.

Emachines T5082 Adding 512Mb ram. Getting slot 0 installed slot 1 not installed.


Try swapping the memory in the two slots. It sounds like either one of the memory chips is bad or one of the memory slots is bad.
If you find that one of the slots is bad, then you might try just putting a 1GB Chip in the slot that works.

First of all to say....that your second assumption may be the right-one. Please contact either your Processor Vendor or your Motherboard Vendor to check your Motherboard or your Processor's compatibility to each other. If this combination goes right......then there may be problem of correct assembling. Please check all the connections before starting your computer. We are not able to give you just the proper solution because we are assuming some possibilities as we are helping you from far away.

I want to expand my memory, so I went to Fry's with my computer model number and bought a 1Gig memory card, brought it home and the pin configuration doesn't match. The one I bought has two rows of pi


Go to http:\\www.pby.com and look at the memory configurator. You will be asked about your system (make and model). They will then advise you of the specific part number for your memory. Keep in mind, you should never expand upon existing memory. It is always better to replace the memory completely so you don't have to deal with any manufacturing conflicts. Take your new found part number and plug it in at amazon.com

To replace 1 GB of memory completely should cost about $45.00 USD.

Ram problem


IT IS A SHARED MEMORY
You won't like the resolution if you remove the 8mb buffer in bios set-up, trust me.(it will make your display look like 16color windows 3.1 or worse) You could try it and it will get you back that 8 meg the other is shadow ram, don't mess with that either.
Your options in advanced video are 8mb and 1mb. My advice, leave it.
