Is the memory of the same brand, you sometimes can not mix and match memory and some PC's require two slots of memory to function, if memory is of same brand it is possible that memory is bad. reseat both sticks and retry, if same problem replace memory again

SOURCE: i have purchashed additional ram

Hi,

Generally this will happen when you install the RAM with diff specifications or unsupported size (MBs).

Points to be noted before replacing the RAM:

* Maximum memory supported by your computer.

* Memory specifications compatiblity.

You can get the memory module specfications of your computer from its manufacturer.

If this is happening even after installing the correct RAM then you have to try with diff brand RAM.

While manufacturing the RAM, they have to follow many standards. If they won't follow those standards, then this issue may accout. So, check with another brand.

Pls reply if you need more information

SOURCE: new ram memory on dell dimension celeron trying to

You should check with the folks at Dell since whoever wrote their technical manuals for this machine can't do basic math. There are 2 memory slots and each can handle a maximum capacity of 512MB, yet they claim the maximum capacity for the machine is 2GB instead of 1GB. Using 512MB modules would probably work.

SOURCE: I am having p4 PC with 915 motherboard & 255

Hello,

it does not have an exact maximum RAM.

The reason the Ram did not work with the mother board is because, the Ram is not compatible with the mother board.

Until you get the exact compatible RAM, the board will not recognize it.

I have experienced this a lot of time.

I wish you the best.

I have the HP Pavilion a1330n computer, I just installed 4G of memory (4 X1G) to replace my previous 1G (2 X 512). The memory specs are correct but every morning the computer has a black screen and I have...


NO OS stated, Blues screens you mean the BSOD with the halt? statement on screen? i bet yes. (with words on blue screen)
words matter.....
Bought new memory or old?
no, (to supposed) yes, to , back to beginning done wrong or luck bad.
so put back the old RAM, does that work.?
or use just 1 stick of old ram. ? 1 by 1.
then repeat, new ram 1by1,
see? one stick is bad, if it all ran perfectly before you touched ram.
buying RAM for such and old PC is not easy.
step1:
first ASK HP, you asked now at yahoo, why here, and not HP>?
but HP long long ago retired the A series.
per HP pages. here
https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products
personally I do go the used PC store and buy $20 PC vastly newer.
sure would, but lets follow the rules for yours, step by step
step 2, (1 was hp , no support)
next is to lean what Memory was uses and what the processor spec is on the same,
the mobo is 2005 era. (as old as) 12 years ago...
its not Intel, its Athlon 64 (S) 3800+ 2.4 GHz
if it was intel , the intel chip drives the memory with its MMC
its not.
ASUS made this mobo by HP contract.A8AE-LE
hp name is: AmberineM-GL6E
max mem
4 GB* (4 x 1 GB) requires the replacement of the installed 512 MB DIMMs
PC-3200 MB/sec , speed ( not slower !) faster ok.
184 pin, DDR SDRAM
Dual-channel memory architecture
4 x 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets support unbuffered non-ECC 4 GB 400/300 MHZ DDR memory modules

page 7 is sparse in your manual.
https://www.manualslib.com/manual/721818/Asus-A8ae-Le.html?page=7#manual


the Athalon 64 has an ON DIE mmc, memory controller
this sets the base limits of all possible memory.
the memory speed is not by FSB, speeds
simpler terms, the memory is always running at a set fraction of the CPU speed
this chip has the advantage for running , cleaner DDR signals.
that other FSB designs.
what that means , to the user more memory choices.


I see this maker selling memory , a top maker,
http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/HP-Compaq/pavilion-a1330n-series

test the sticks all 1 by 1,,, one good way to test it is run fast games.

DDR stick density rules and numbers and types of memory pre stick and pre side can cause problems on old processors.
I could not find the Athalon 64 rules on this, AMD can tell you at there site but im too lazy to look it up..
best is to let Crucial or Kingston guy you , here. for SURE>

Screen black out, but the cpu fan is running.


it could be two reasons.
1. your RAM has a issue ( try a different ram from a friends pc)

2. your Graphics card is having an issue. ( try removing & fixing back on, if it does notwork.. either get a friends graphics card & ifix on to your pc & chk or fix your VGA card on to another PC & chk if the VGA card works. either way you will find out what wrong.

let me know the out come.

hope it works
cheers..

SAMSUNG 1GB RAM 400MHZ PC3200


RAM has to be

Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
It has to be the same.


• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
Or
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets
