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

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."

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

P.S.: Don`t think a discussion is necessary, thread could therefore be closed...

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.

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?

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.

I am trying to upgrade the RAM memory on my Gateway MX3230 notebook. It presently has 256 MB and I would like to upgrade to 1 GB. I have checked the Gateway website and and upgrade to 1 GB is acceptable. I purchased a memory module from Kingston which was listed as being compatible with my laptop. When I tried installing the module, the computer will not start, nothing but black screen. It's as thought there is no memory at all. I tried re-installing the module making sure it was inserted in as far as it will go, still no luck. There is no settings in bios that I can see that would prevent the acceptance of this module. I have no idea why this will not work. If I re-insert the original module, the computer boots fine. If anyone has any idea at all of why this is happening I would like to know. Thanks
 

A:Cannot upgrade memory

According to the CRUCIAL site, the Gateway MX3230 laptop has a single slot to upgrade from 256 MB to 1024 MB. The site doesn't advise what type module it uses though.

According to the MEMORYX site, it uses a single DDR2-533 SODIMM module(256 MB, 512 MB, or 1024 MB).

According to the KINGSTON site, it uses a single DDR2-533 SODIMM module.

That pretty much confirms that a DDR2-533 SODIMM module is what it needs. Have you examined the sticker or the writing on the module, just to make sure that you weren't sent the wrong one? It's also possible that the module is defective.

(That's the first time that I've run across a laptop that supports up to 1024 MB of RAM, but has only a single slot and not the usual 2 slots.)

I have a Dell Dimension 8100 with 128MB of RDRAM which they refer to as rimm's not simms. I want to upgrade to 256MB so I can install Windows XP (presently running ME). The system is a PC600 and is about 2 years old. I cannot find any info on RDRAM any where. Can anyone tell my how I know what type of rimm's I presently would have in the box (has 4 modules 2 are physically higher than the others) is RDRAM something special?

Looks difficult to upgrade the memory. Is it even possible?
