I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have just bought some new memory, 2 x 1 gig, inserted it and ran the test. I get one error in the Stride38 test. Address expected is different to the one returned.

I know which chip it is, should I send it back, or is this 1 error acceptable for the system?

Thanks for your response

Hi bruce90matrix,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Similar to discussions here and here:
 
Product specifications: 
16GB max7 ; PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3*, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets
 
OEM recommended HDD capacity is 1TB as offered here on the FRU list of the hardware manual (page 26 here). 
Resellers like crucial would offer 2 TB so it would be best to check returns options just in case.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

I have a home built ASUS A7N8X2 Deluxe MoBo with an AMD Athlon XP 2800+ CPU. I upgraded Win XP Pro to VISTA Ultimate with no problems other than upgrading a few drivers. It went smoothly. At the time I had 1 GB in one of 3 available slots. I attempted to add 2 GB more to occupy all 3 slots. This produced a reboot after POST as VISTA started. I rotated the the modules through all slots and finally realized that when I went beyond 2 GB it produced a reboot. During post it tests 3 GB and the BIOS displays 3 GB. I have 512MB of RAM on the video card. Any suggestions ?? I am running the latest BIOS and if I remove one GB the machine boots and runs great... ???? Ron

Thank you for your message.Yes, this memory is compatible with the system. This system model has 4 memory slots & supports a maximum up to 32 GB @ 1600 MHz DDR3/DDR3L (1.5 V).However, if you use memory stick of two different speeds, the memory will be down- clocked to the lowest speed.We would recommend you to look for a memory which has a speed of 1600 MHz for better performance.

I want to upgrade the memory of one of the pc's in our house. I get low memory alerts often and I can't delete much else to create room. I have never opened up a pc before, and I don't want to screw up and make things worse. The pc in question is a HP Pavilion a1150Y with a Intel Pentium 4 (3.00 GHz). OS is Windows XP SP2. It came with 512MB RAM and I would like to go up 2GB. I went to www.crucial.com, ran the system scan, and it says that this type of memory can go into that pc: "DDRII memory with support for DDR2 PC2-4200,DDR2 PC2-5300,DDR2 PC2-6400,DDR2 PC2-8500 speeds." I don't know what speed I should be installing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello together !

For your information:

Did a memory upgrade today at 2 Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100 (1,9 GH, 256 MB DDR-RAM originally), both up to 1 GB, all fine and not problems.

Just wanted to end rumours about "only 512 MB all together" or even less.

If searching for it, remember to think of the specifications:

DDR-266 (PC2100)
DDR-SDRAM, SO-DIMM
200 PIN
CL 2.5

concerning RAM frequency, building form etc.

Greetings

Your notebook can handle with 4GB of RAM and I recommend you to use 2 x 2GB module.
Compatible 2 GB module has part number PA3513U-1M2G or Kingston KTT667D2/2G.

Put the part umber in Google and you will find a place where you can order it in your country.

to have Task Manager recognize the added memory? Is the fact that the Task Manager does not recognize the added memory mean other functions are not recognizing the added memory?

The ThinkPad T400 and T500 datasheet states that it can handle up to 8GB of RAM, so it should work unless you are running a 32-bit version of Windows, in which case the maximum RAM that can be addressed by the OS is 4GB regardless of how much RAM you install.       The Windows license key is valid for both 32 and 64-bit, but to go from 32-bit to 64-bit, you would have to uninstall and reinstall Windows. Windows Install Media Download Links,https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Hope that helps,

Hey, im trying to work this out (im new to upgrading and all that stuff, so bare with me)....

At the moment a have 512mb of PC2700 at 333MHZ (i think) (also im trying to get my comp up to scratch for gaming) so any way, im looking to upgrade to 1GB of the stuff. So first i looked at my motherboard specifications here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?product=371891&cc=br&lc=en&dlc=pt&docname=c00032472


Notice it ses "Memory Speed" Then the speed of which i have now. I geuss what i want to know is, is that the MAX it can take (it dont say that but im not sure)...now i know my processors....."thingy" (fsb?) is 333MHZ so im gussing i have to buy memory with the same frequency, but does the "PC2700" matter? (can i go higher)


And also, can i make my processor go to 400MHZ? cus it ses in the specifications page about my motherboard "333/400MHZ" Can i change it then? (cus you know, the faster the better for gaming....)



Any way hope that makes sence...
 

A:Memory Upgrade

The rule of thumb when dealing with memory is that you want to use memory that runs at the same speed (or as close to as possible) as your processor's frontside bus (FSB). For example - you have a processor with a 333mHz FSB - therefore, you want to use PC2700, or DDR 333 (it's the same thing).

In regards to your question about the processor, you should run the processor at the recommended processor frontside bus to cut down on heat issues. Running at more than the recommended speed is called "overclocking", and without proper cooling, you can cause heat damage and possibly break your computer.

DDR memory comes in many different flavors - PC 2100, PC 2700 and PC 3200 are the three main ones. The "PC####" directly corresponds to a speed - PC 2100 = DDR 266, PC2700 = DDR 333, and PC 3200 = DDR 400, or 266, 333 and 400 mHz bus speeds.

I hope this helps.

A:HELP with memory upgrade...

Buy it at Crucial, E-bay most likely has poor memory and when Crucial offers you memory for your machine it is going to work. E-bay is a hit and miss and if the memory is bad you will have a hard time returning it and then they will just replace with the same thing.

Hi All, I am having difficulties adding more memory to my A30 2652 3WG. I have 128MB installed but when I try to add a 512MB stick I get the 1,3,3,1 beeps error message and cannot continue. I have updated the BIOS and tried to reset the CMOS but this has not solved the problem. I have tried two different sticks separately, together and in combination with the existing 128Mb but the only way it works is with the original 128MB stick by itself. Searching this community has brought a number of points that I am not sure about. 1 Update the Embedded Controller.  I do not know what this controls or if it is relevant. 2 Use low density not high density sticks. The sticks I have have 4 chips each side which I think makes them high density. 3 Upgrade Chipset support and storage drivers. I cannot see any obvious updates to load on Lenovo's list of updates. However I cannot make System Update work and so I am having to pick them out and load them manually.  4 I am not sure if it is sufficient to remove the backup battery in order to reset the CMOS settings or if further actions are needed. Can anyone explain these or suggest anything else I should do Regards Roger

A:Memory Upgrade For A30

My assumption is that you either have a bad memory slot, or the stick that you're using to upgrade is faulty itself.Try your original 128 MB stick in both slots.Try booting the machine with the 512 MB DIMM only. Let us know what happens.BTW, A30/p doesn't differentiate between high/low density sticks.Good luck.

Hi, I'm using a very basic system and just need to give a little boost before a total upgrade when this becomes 'obsolete'. I'm using a sempron 2300 on a biostar mobo, up to 400mhz fsb with 768 mb RAM, 512 of which is pc2700+ [email protected] Ok so I can either buy 512 mb of pc2700 to give 1024mb of ram @333mhz, 1gb of 3200 ram and lose the pc 2700 to get 1280mb pc3200 @333 mhz with the Sempron. Alternatively I could upgrade the CPU to a 2800 and run at 333 mhz with the existing 768 of RAM. What to do?
 

A:Upgrade CPU or add memory?

i recommend you go with ditching the ram you have and install 1024meg faster ram. ie 1024mb of ram @333mhz

if you have the most amazing cpu it is still limited with the speed of your ram.

(above info. from some online store . my LENOVO-laptop is exactly as above)
can any one tell me does this mean i can only put total 2gb mem ? 1gb in each slot? ( i have two slots)
also i bought 2gb. ram from small cut back computer store and they installed it works but after a while it keep showing me an error ( blue screen etc. ) i tried in diffrent bank - 2gb in one slot and 512mb in other still the same error.
but soon as i switch back to original 512 mb in each slot no problem .
what can be wrong.? i love to install total 8gb ( 4x4 ) or atleast 4gb. (2x2)
thanks for any help.

A:memory upgrade

You should probably contact Lenovo's tech support with your question; however, as I read it, you are stuck with a maximum of a pair of 1GB SODIMMs -- 2GB total memory.

The mere fact that larger SODIMMs exist doesn't mean that your laptop's motherboard can address the memory on them.

Edited to add: Have you tried it without the 512MB module? Using only the 2GB module? That might work. Then, again, it might not. Only way to tell is to try it.

I have two computers that I have questions about.
First one is a homebuilt one I bought from a buddy at work, it has a Azza motherboard running a Pentium4 2.4GHz processor, It only runs at 1.8 GHz and it has 2 slots for 168pin SDRAM, the video processor is on the motherboard. I want to speed it up but I am not certain about:
1: Why is it only running at 1.8 instead of 2.4?
2: I am not finding alot of 168 pin RAM available, any ideas?
3: Should I buy a video board, things to look for when I do?
4: Someone told me there is a way to double the memory space (two into one adapters), any truth to that?
5: When I bought this from my buddy, I thought Pentium 4 was fairly current. Can I buy a different Motherboard and still use the P4 chip?

The other computer is a Compaq Presario SR 1123 WM, Running a Celeron 2.66 w/1G RAM it runs at 2.67GHz. Actually pretty snappy . My question about this one is another memory question.
I was looking at the available memory for this style, a 184 pin and there's alot more than SDRAM but there are PC#s like PC2100 PC2500 PC3200 etc... WHAT does this mean and WHERE can I find out WHAT I need for my computer? Will 3200 work in a 2100? Is the higher # a guaranteed max rating or what.
I think the two sticks of ram that are in there now are 333MHz. I don't know if that is what I need or can I use faster.
Alot of questions...I know, but there's a ton more in this ol' head LOL!
 

A:Memory upgrade ????????????

The 1st thing you should do is go here; http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html

download SIW 1.70 to your desktop. This application will give you lots of info on your machines. This is an executable that does not have to be installed, just download and launch from the desktop. If you don't want to keep and use it, just right click on the icon and delete it.

Personally, I have never heard of an Azza motherboard. See how SIW 1.70 indentifies it.

You can go with each machine to www.crucial.com and run their online scanner and it will tell you what RAM you use. They should have just about any memory you need.
