Increasing memory in e-machine t2240
Hi slcdane 13. One thing with DIMM slots is that, first of all they are color coded there. Im assuming that you have 4 DIMM slots and two of them are one color, and the other two are another color. What that means is that is if One DIMM slot has a RAM module of a certain capacity, then the other DIMM slot of the same color has to contain a RAM module of the same capacity as the first module. Now i am assuming that you have more than two RAM modules and More than 2 DIMM slots. HERE IS AN EASIER EXAMPLE
Lets say you have DIMM slots 1, 2, 3, and 4. Slots 1 and 3 are yellow, and slots 2 and 4 are red. Now lets say you also have 4 Ram modules. 2 of them are each 2 Gigabytes ready, and the other 2 are each 1 Gigabyte ready. Now lets say you take one of the 2 Gigabyte RAM modules and you place it into DIMM slot 1 which is yellow, what this means is that you have to place the other 2 Gigabyte RAM module into the DIMM slot 3 which is also yellow. The remaining 1 Gigabyte modules will have to go into DIMM slots 2 and 4 which are red.
Now do you get it? Same capacity modules have to go into same color slots. Now try it and see.
