Solved: RAM Memory Expansion

Q: Solved: RAM Memory Expansion

Hi everybody. I have a question a bit strange/or difficult! I'm using Dell Dimension E521. I have 4 (four) slots to add more RAM memory. I have it filled with 4 (four) 512 MB RAM modules. I have a feeling that I need a bit more. What can I do? My motherboard supports only 2 gigabytes all together. Wondering if there is anything I can buy (a link for the item please) to add another 2 gigabytes? It can be something what I can plug in to one of my USB outlets. Or do you think the existing 2046 MB of RAM memory is enough for me?
(How difficult would it be to install a different motherboard? I donít really understand what can I do with a Processor chip itself?)

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have an ACER aspire 5733.  It came with both memory slots filled, one DIMM0 with a Kingston DDR3 1024mb PC3-10700 (667 MHz) and the other, DIMM1 with a Kingston DDR3 4096 MBytes PC3-10700 (667 MHz).  I'd like to replace the smaller one with another 4gb stick so that it performs a little better, and is more likely to cope with Windows 10, but I can't work out how to idenitfy the right one to buy. Which specification is most important to match. Is the Mhz important ?  Some UK sites don't quote a mhz number on what seem to be the right sticks.  how do I work out what pin I need? any help most welcome

Hello,

I really enjoy this new laptop. Only having this problem with memory expansion.
It currently has a M2 256gb SSD built in, and I want a 2,5'' 500gb HDD in it aswell.
Therefor I need a bracket.
I have found a picture of this bracket, add in attachments.
Found on the following site (picture 4/8): http://laptopmedia.com/highlights/in...grade-options/
In this picture is no M2 slot to be seen.
Looks like only one of these posibilties has been add into the laptop.

Question is; where can I find this bracket, so I can add more memory to my laptop?

A:XC-704 Expansion Slot & Memory Upgrade

Ok, Sorry looking up the model at Kingston and a couple other sites didn't show your computer and seeing I hadn't seen any I was confused. Based on what I have found maybe a Model from other country.  With that said it looks like it comes with 2gig DDR3L Ram and is Upgradable to 8Gig Also looks like yours comes With 1 PCI Express x16 Slot. I am not sure with the PSU and with that slot if you would be able to upgrade to a different Graphics Card. GPU and size of case would put a huge limit on what could be able to fit...  James

Is there any current documentation or whitepapers that illustrate why a customer should upgrade by adding DDR3/4 memory as opposed to believing they will get the same performance by allowing Windows to page out to an SSD drive?  Particularly if the software they are running specifically calls for more memory than is currently installed in the machine?

I was wanting to pursue the memory upgrade for my 6 GB HP-ac143wm...do you have the precise name/type of modules to perform either the 8 GB or 16 GB upgrade? I am a poweruser/programmer and would benefit from more memory. Thanks, Joe

A:Memory upgrade/expansion for HP-ac143wm

Here is the Service manual: Manual p. 2 the Manual says 8 gigs is the max. I personally think it will take 16 gigs since it will take an 8 gig module, but to be safe assume 8 is the max.  To go from 6 gigs to 8 gigs you have to discard the existing 2 gig module and replace it with a 4 gig module.  How to on p. 46: 4-GB (PC3L, 12800, 1600-MHz) 691740-005 This is really only supposed to be done by an authorized technician to keep the warranty, but it is actually not terribly hard to do. There are a lot of screws involved, however so if you are not used to tech work you might want to take it to a shop.  Post back if you need more help. the 6 gig to 8 gig upgrade should be somewhat noticeable and does enable dual channel memory operation which is a bit faster than single channel and the extra 2 gigs is needed by any intensive computing. 8 to 16 gigs might not even be noticeable.  This is the module you need: https://www.amazon.com/HP-691740-001-1600MHz-PC3L-12800-memory/dp/B00CI08FX4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=... If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

hi guys,

i have a clone box...horrible thing!!! it had a power supply that blew...and i replaced the power supply
then it was freezing after a few minutes of operation...truly freezing clock didnt change

i narrowed it down to the front usb ports...in fact none of the usb seemed to work...and yes...i did check in the bios
and everything was enabled except legacy usb...but this didnt make a difference
as soon as i plugged usb in it froze

so i disabled USB and added a pci usb expansion card
now im getting unknown device usb errors and the big black usb icon in the task bar.

is the card still using aspects of the on board usb...or is it totally seperate...?
do you think the card is gone too?

any suggestions...please

My case has these two expansion ports in front, hidden behind removable plastic covers. There's metal grating over it (as you should be able to see below) but it looks like that could be snapped off really easily with a pair of pliers.

Here's a picture:
So, my question is, what can I put in these expansion ports? It looks like Zip drives and front-mounted USB ports would be too large. The only thing I can think of would be extra floppy drives, and who needs that in this day in age?
 

A:Solved: Mini Expansion Bays

these would also fit hdd's. Which is really what they are designed for. You can get 3 1/2" cards to go in them as well, such as front mounted usb, sound card outputs, etc. which is why they have the removeable metal and plastic covers. Yes if you wanted to, you could put a floppy drive in there as well

Here's my dilemma:

I have a generic $50 case, and no video card.

I am shopping for a cheap video card, so I can play some Half Life 2 type stuff.

before buying the card I tried to hook up a PCI network card, but there's no way to secure the card to the chassis with a mounting screw. I've messed around with video/sound/network cards many times before, but have never seen a case with no screws.

I've attached a pic of my expansion slots if it helps at all. As you can see there's no holes to screw a card down, and those funny looking clip things don't line up with anything.

I'm sure I'm missing something, but google can't even help me out cause I don't really know what I'm looking at, or what I need to fix this problem.

How do I expand my C drive??..Here is a pic of disk management..

A:Expansion

25GB is the recommended disk space for a window 8 consumer preview install, your C: drive just isn't big enough unless you wipe your OS that's all ready on it and you wouldn't want to do that, only install windows 8 on a test machine or as dual boot install in my opinion.

It looks like you have enough space on your E: drive where you could create a 25GB blank partition and then you could install Windows 8 consumer preview there, if not then get another or bigger hard drive.

You could also make a ghost image of your C: drive, get a bigger C: hard drive, reghost your C: drive back onto the new bigger hard drive and then create a blank partition on it of 25GB or bigger and install windows 8 there, that's above my head though and could be kind of hard to do.

A:expansion

No mate it wont, SATA built onto the boad runs at 150 ATA theoretically but the add in cards are still limited by the PCI bus which impose the same limit as IDE chips so the most you would get would be 133, personally I never found a difference with SATA built in until I put 2 drives in a raid stripe.

A:ide expansion

Yes- An IDE Controller card will add 4 additional device capapbility- one I am familiar with called Promise Ultra 100, TX2- but there are others. Use any search engine for "IDE Controller Cards" should get you needed info. Installing the Promise Ultra 100 is fairly easy if you follow instructions. You may not have any spare IRQ's with 4 devices already. Should be some information in the search articles about this. Cost is around $25 at most PC supply sites. Bought one at computer show for $23. Most use PCI slot- sure you have one that is free- and not the shared slot.
When installed, they show up as a SCSI device.

First off in my computer I had prior to RAM expansion one stick of MB DDR PC or so I am told by AIDA and PCU-Z When I Problem Expansion RAM got my second stick of MB the guy at Futureshop tried to insert a PC speed stick but the computer rejected it on boot so he told me that my computer has one stick of PC already in it not PC even though AIDA and CPU-Z say it is PC and so he put in another stick of PC Now according to CPU-Z and AIDA two programs that display information on all your computer hardware etc I have in my two slots my RAM Expansion Problem one original stick of PC and my new stick of PC that the guy at the store claimed matched my old stick Now to the problem I am playing games such as Half-Life RAM Expansion Problem and Counter-Strike Source Rome Total War and Battlefield on my computer and they were not performing very well at MB hence my choice to expand Since I have had this stick added performance within these games has dropped I am getting - FPS in CS S Could this decrease be due to the difference in speeds of my RAM PC - PC and if so does anyone know why my computer would have rejected a new stick of PC when the original in there is of that speed nbsp

I have a shared PCI/ISA slot on my MB. What (or better how) can I use this slot? I want to add a NIC for DSL but all my PCI's are in use by Firewire, SCSI, and sound cards? Can I use this shared slot for the NIC or swap out one of my others and use them in the shared??
Thanks for any help!

A:expansion slot

well, most PCI cards sohuld play nice nice with the shared slot. But i'm not to sure abuot that. I'm not sure if the sound card would like it though. You can probably just put the NIC in there

Should I unplug it's power source when i'm not using it ? or just leave it ?
Should I unplug it's USB cable from PC when not using it ?
etc.

I have had a seagate 500gb expansion drive for two years and never had a problem, then yesterday I turned it on, the led indicator lit for a second and the disc started and continued spinning but with no sign of it in file explorer, after several more efforts the same result, I tried other usb sockets then a friends laptop with the same results I am puzzled the way the green LED lights up but for only 0.5 of a second, that together with the seemingly intact rotation of the platter gives me hope but then I know nothing of IT hardware therefore I?m hoping that someone can advise me either way whether I may be able to get a quick and (cheapish) repair or if my doom monger friend is correct by suggesting a professional retrieval can be eye-wateringly expensive regardless of the amount of data saved. Again a pre-emptive Thank you to any prospective.

I decided to delete the hidden Asus restore partition from my cloned hard drive. The drive had 2 partitions, the hidden one, then the C: drive (with system and data).

This was before I found out that the Windows 7 Disk Management tool will not allow you to expand a partition to the left.

So now I have 15 GB of space at the start of the drive and the only option on the C: drive is to shrink the partition.

Any way using Windows to add that space to my primary partition?

A:Partition expansion

You need to use a third party tool to move your partition to the start of the drive, then windows will let you expand it to fill the drive.

Alright, so I've basically installed everything and patched it and have the CD in the drive but when I start up the game, the game's logo shows up and then it suddenly goes.... "Age of Empires II expansion has Stopped working..." blah blah blah. I've ran some old games and they worked I don't know why AoE II doesn't....

Tried Compatibility Windows 98 and XP SP2 and Windows 2003 SP1 *No idea why*
Tried reinstalling both of them, patched them already, my anti-virus doesn't interfere with it or anything, tried running in 256 colours and still crashes, also ran as Administrator and it doesn't work..

Can anyone help me?

Also this is my Task Manager, i don't think any of those interfere with it running the game..

A:Age of Empires II and Expansion

After reading your post I tried to start my old installation of AoE2 (on storage-HD) and it did run perfect. The basic game (empires2.exe) as well as the expansion (age2_x1/age2_x1.exe) required only the acceptal of the EULA (license and stuff) since I didn't installed the game properly on Vista. But everything else worked fine. So it may be a problem with your version of Vista or maybe even the system.

I had some troubles recently with older games because the programs had insufficient rights to access files... try "run as administrator" on the empires2.exe (not the shortcut), but that's only a vague guess...
Good luck!

Hi,

I have a Compaq Proliant 1600 running Windows NT 4.0 server and 2 logical drives on a raid 5 array.

I have just added a new 9.1GB disk (same as the other 5) and run the Compaq array config utility. This has happily added the new disk to the array and restripped the data. However, NT isn't showing any more free disk space.

I had this happen when I added the 5th disk and I know I had to do something else to get NT to see the extra space, but I don't remember what.

Anyone got any ideas?

Many thanks

My only experience with a Compaq RAID-5 array was that 5 drives was the maximum it would manage, the 6th was simply a spare that hung around until one of the other drives failed. I may be off-base here, since it's been awhile since I worked with the Compaq server, just an observation.

Win7 Ultimate x 32, SR1 fully updated - I've disabled the "open Submenus" option in start menu but still getting regular popup windows.

Reminders would be appreciated, it's more than a little annoying.. .

A:automatic submenu expansion

well, this appears to be a random issue related to windows updates. I have a Genius brand mouse, but on updating the OS -sometimes- it rejects the drivers in favor of generic MS drivers. Running the normal driver update results in nothing more than the standard "device is up to date" message, and win7 will not recognize any downloaded drivers in the directory holding the manufacturer's files. My only solution has been to select "browse my computer" from the driver update options, then "let me pick" and uncheck "show compatible hardware" - viola, the manufacturer and actual drivers finally show up. Ignored the MS warning that they aren't compatible, it works. I've had to repeat the process a couple of times in the few months since I posted this. Hopefully it will help anybody else struggling with the same issues.

I bought a Seagate Expansion 5TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive.
 
Not that it's really relevant to explain that other than to illustrate how important it is that I don't blow the thing up, but I bought it to create a disk image in Macrium Reflect Home Edition v6 (which I did), in preparation for upgrading from Win7 to Win10, just in case things go very badly when I do that.
 
But I notice that when it's plugged in and I right-click on it in Windows Explorer, no "Eject" option appears in the drop-down menu.
 
So I just unplugged it.
 
Is "Eject" just not appearing because an expansion drive is made in such a way that no preparation is needed before safely unplugging it?
 
Or am I risking data loss or worse by unplugging it without preparation?

A:Don't need to eject an expansion drive?

Down in your tray near the clock should be a "Safely Remove Hardware" button, clicking it should give a list of items you want to unplug from your system.

Circumventing Copy Protection - While we believe it's reasonable to make backup copies of CDs and DVDs that you own, a lot of people break copy protection for the wrong reasons. The law is still vague, at best, as to if it is legal to break copy protection in order to make such a backup, even for personal use. (The DMCA, for example, seems to make it illegal.) As a result, we do not allow discussion of how to break copy protection at this time. If we can find a nice way to draw the line, we may reconsider this in the future as laws get sorted out.

A:can't load game expansion

Your original Sims installation might not be in the place the expansion is looking...You could try going to Start->Search->Search for Files and Folders and then look for the directory the original is installed at.

The expansion needs to be installed in the same drive and directory as the original...So if the original is in the C: drive, the expansion must be in the C: drive too.

The expansion might be trying to install in C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims\, when the original was installed in C:\The Sims\, for example. Or, the original might be in the D: drive and the expansion is looking for it in the C: drive.
EDIT: Just thought of this...if the expansion you have installed already is NEWER than Double Deluxe, than Double Deluxe might not install properly...In that case, you might have to uninstall/reinstall the game and install the expansions in the order they were released.

I have a LanParty UT mobo, great board, no problems. However, I have the pins for the USB block on the back of my PC and a second set of pins for the front set of USB ports. However, I have a 5 in 1 USB card reader that requires pins but no 3rd set of pins on the mobo to connect. Anyone have any suggestions on how to expand USB connections (meaning pins as I can't use a hub).
 

A:USB Mobo Expansion Options

If you have a free PCI slot on the motherboard, you can install a PCI USB card that comes with internal pins.

Is there Anything wrong in Windows Vista? because the hardware error scan is correct. No problems in it.

I have an intel 865 motherboard. I am using a sound card audigy zs and have it plugged into a PCI expansion slot. Each time i have opened my computer my sound card stops working and i have to change the PCI expansion slot to make it work again. After that it stops working on that slot, i am down to my 3rd slot out of 4 to hook my sound card up to since the first two dont work for the sound card anymore. I am totally confused by this situation any help will be appreciated if you need more info pls let me know....
 

A:Help with losing PCI Expansion Slots

Well, The sound card may be frying evrything it gets into. Is this a new card, or have you had it for a while? Check to see if you can still use those pci slots for anything else, because like I said before, its probably frying the slots. Which means you may need to get a new soundcard, and a new motherboard(but both may be under warrenty, so dont worry to much)

Do i need the sims livin large expansion in order to install the sims hot date expansion, and if so what serial umber would i use because i lost mine.
 

A:sime hot date expansion

you don't need it, but if you have it, i believe it needs to be installed first if you want the content of that pack. It needs to be installed in order of release.

What expansion card can I use? I have the Acer ATC-605-UR51 desktop AKA the TC-605. I seem to have two expansion slots inside. One is smaller, and I used it for this USB 3.0 card. One is larger. I wanted to have some USB 2.0 ports and purchase this card, but it did not fit. What can I buy? Thanks!!!!
