Question about E-Machines W6409 (7234) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I added an additional 1GB of RAM card , but my computer will not recognize the additional memory. I tried swapping cards between the two slots , nothing . The specs say the motherboard can handle 1GB per slot - 2GB total . That's what I have now. Is it something in the BIOS or another setting I don't know about ? HELP !

    You have a total of 2GB already and are adding an additional 1GB or you have 1GB in there now and are upgrading to 2GB total?

If you have the additonal memory in the system correctly, it should be recognized.
Attempt to boot the system with just the new stick in. If it boots you most likely have a motherboard issue. If it doesn't, it's just a bad stick of memory and I suggest just getting a new one.

I replaced a 250 RAM slot with a 1GB RAM slot. There is no difference in speed. Ran a Norton system check and it is still recognizing the 250 mb RAM instead of the 1GB RAM.


try resetting the computer, if that doesn't work it could be that your computer only recognizes 250mb or your BIOS needs to be configured.

Adding memory to a a75-s211


How much memory did it have before you removed the 256Mb RAM?
If it had 756Mb RAM then the memory in the laptop has 512 Mb plus 256 Mb RAM modules, the 256Mb in the slot you can see and possibly 512Mb in a slot under the keyboard or soldered on the motherboard.
Therefore by removing the 256Mb and replacing with 1Gb memory module will give you a total of 1.5Gb

Adding memory, new total not recognized: IBM Thinkpad R51e-1844


Ram should always be paired. Same type, speed and size in each slot. You may have 1 SIMM/DIMM/DDR that has 2 sides of chips and the other with 1 which will do exactly what you state. RAM reads across the chips simultaneously. So if you have a different one in each slot it can go bonkers and do goofy stuff on you.

    COMPUTER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE ADDED MEMORY


    Are the memory cards the same? Try swapping the memory cards inside the computer. It is also important to go into the Setup (F2) once the new memory has been added. The setup keeps track of the hardware changes to your computer, and the additional memory needs to be saved in the Setup configuration. Please let me know what happens and thank you. Binary Bob
