Make sure the memory chip is compatible with the motherboard.
also, think about it...do you really need 2GB. (only good reason is vista)

hope this helps

I upgraded my memory RAM 2g and added 1g so it makes a 3G of ram but how come when my pc boot up up i can only see 2G ram single chanel. wen i go to my my computer----properties----general under computer:...

Could you please go online and in a search engine type "MAX RAM E-Machines (here put your model #)." Pick a link that secribes your maxi,um ram and if it's only 2GB you'll have your answer. If the max is higher there should be instructions on how to set the computer to acess and show the RAM.

I have added memory to my inspiron 2200 laptop...and the memory is reading 256mb before adding it was 526(something) is this going the wrong way?????also my computer seems slower....

First try reseating the memory. Sometimes memory dimms not fully seated will not register. If that doesnt work are you sure that you ordered/bought the correct memory for your unit. Some units require PARITY.. meaning that two different memory manufacturers may not be compatible in machine and you need two memory chips from same manufacturer and model and size.So if you have one from one company and one from the other the machine may be only recognizing one of them. If you have done both of the above.. Remove all memory and boot machine. Allow to do a full boot to OS and then shut down the unit via the OS... Start, Shutdown. Then reseat memory chips and reboot. Always do this with battery removed and on AC power.

Remove added memory
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
  • Additional information about determining the type of memory to use in a memory upgrade can be found on document CH000910.
Open computer and reseat memory
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
Swap memory location
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.
Try another computers memory
If you have access to another computer that uses the same type of memory try using its known good memory in your computer.
If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard and/or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Replace memory
If you've determined or believe that the memory in y our computer is bad we suggest that you replace it.

My Inspiron 1525 does not recognize the memory I added. It had 3GB, I removed the 1GB and added a 2GB. When it did not register the additional memory, I put the old one back in and it now does not...

Once you change the ram, you have to boot to the system setup so that the BIOS can recognize the new module.
When inserting the ram module in the slot, it should be at a 30 degree angle to the system and inserted till the golden contacts can not be seen looking straight down at the slot. Then press the module down until the retention clips click. The top edge of the contacts should then be barely visible.
Once the RAM has been properly inserted, then boot to the system setup, exit then boot to windows

Monitor and keyboard won't turn on

A couple of things here:

1) The flashing light and signal message indicate that the monitor is functioning but is not receiving a signal from the computer.

2) The memory that you added is liklely to be incompatible with the computer itself and is preventing the system from booting. The computer will perform a selftest when powered on. Normally when there is a memory issue, the unit will beep. In some cases, there will be no action.

Remove the added memory and attempt to boot the system. If it starts up OK, then the memory you have added is the problem.

Update this if you require additional assistance.

Thanks,
Dan

PC turns on then quickly turns off

Does it boot fine if you remove the memory you just added? If it does then try switching the memory that was in it before with the memory you just added. You want to first determine if the ram you bought is bad or incompatible.
