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.

I will be upgrading my daughter's laptop memory from a 2x512 configuration to 2x1 gb. She is running Vista so another gig should help.

Right now I can get both Crucial and GSkill in 2x1GB sets at good prices. The Crucial is CAS 5 and the G.Skill is CAS 4.

Is there much of a difference between the two that will be noticible in normal application work? Her system is for school papers, online research and browsing, and IMing; plus she'll watch DVDs from time to time. This is not a gaming laptop. She has her PS2 to do that.

Thanks.

Hi

I have just had an sodimm fail in my laptop so need to replace it. I have a fujitsu amilo li1718 and it did have 2 x 1gb pc 4200. The manual states it is compatible with both pc4200 and pc5300 so am wondering whether to buy another 1gb 4200 or remove the existing one and buy 2 x 1gb pc5300.

Does my laptop have the ability to run the faster memory at its full speed or would they run at the same speed, also if it runs faster would the benefits be noticeable or should i just buy another pc4200. The max memory is 2gb.

thanks

Gary

Will that blow up my laptop or will the memory just clock back and slow down to pc2700 speeds without a problem?

Maybe post a link if possible of the correct memory i need to buy

A:Laptop memory question

Installing memory isn't difficult, but unless you specified how the memory will be currently installed, it's almost definitely two 512MB chips. If you want 4GB of RAM, you'd have to replace both with 2GB chips each.

According to the Dell site, it needs 144 pin PC100 SODIMMs. Looking through some retailer websites who carry the the 265MB size, some say they are 16x16, 32x8, or 32x64. What does the 16x16 mean and does it matter when I'm buying the RAM?

I wonder if I could take the HP's 1gig memory and slap it in the vaio? would that work?

on a similar note, what can else can I salvage from the HP? probably not the hard disk right?
 

A:quick laptop memory question

From what I found, the Sony maxes out at 1 GB RAM. If the HP has 2 x 512 MB DIMMs, you may be able to add one. You've only got one slot available for extra memory.

You may be able to hang on to the HDD as a spare. You cannot have two running internally, though you can get a case for external use via USB.

A:High Memory Usage/ Low Memory Popup on Win10 8gb Laptop

Hello svader55 Welcome to the Ten Forums!

On the first impression I would have to suspect the problem is with the upgrade itself where you might end needing to see a Clean Install of 10. First however you can try a few things out to see if this is only a minor glitch. On an older 7 model by HP the upgrade seen last summer was a disaster waiting to happen which I had enticipated and saw an immediate clean install to follow! Of after going from the 32bit 7 Home Premium to 10 Home x86 I subsequently changed that with a second fresh install the 64bit Windows.

The initial tool would be the System File Checker you would run from the Command prompt(admin) option when right clicking on the Start button. You simply scroll down to that option to see the new window open up. At the dos like prompt you then simply type in "sfc /scannow" and press enter to get the tool underway.

The tool will then scan all the important system files and if finding one or more corrupt or missing will often be able to replace them but not all unfortunately from cab files tucked away on the local drive. With previous versions the rec for having the Windows dvd in the driver was made in case the SFC had to extract something from the Windows media there if the problem was more involved. This is why the suggestion for the possible need to see a fresh clean install of 10 is being made here.

Unfortunately buggy upgrades are all too common regardless of which version is being upgraded over. But you likely saw the option for 10 in the 10 app? or in the Windows Updates perhaps? if not seeing 10 downloaded separately. The appearance from the images you provided suggests the problem is the memory being mapped out to hardwares while that first item being a 32bit app taking upto almost 1tb seems a bit high.

my laptop uses alot of memory. around 50%. how can i lessen the big usage? i have 2gig ram.

A:My laptop uses a big part of my Memory (physical memory)

This is normal for windows 7, it uses the memory in order to prevent un needed read/writes from the drive. This is actually something you want with a laptop because unless you have a solid state drive, laptop drives are traditionally very slow.

I don't understand why people get so upset when their memory is actually being used, that's what it is there for.
If you open a large program that requires more resources windows will unload nonessential processes from memory to the pagefile while that program is active.

Windows 7 is much better at managing memory than it's predecessors.
1 gig of used ram is pretty much expected.
This is why 1 gig is the minimum required per microsoft's specifications.

oh yeah, that will work just fine on that board. BTW, good choice on a board. That series of Gigabyte boards is my absolute favorite. They are the most solidly built board I've ever seen...and...they're not that expensive either.

FYI, your board will support ever incarnation of DDR SDRAM (184 pin) that you can buy on the market. That includes DDR333 and DDR400 (although, I'd stray from the 400...it's very pricey and DDR400 is more of a theory than a standard right now).

  I opened up the back of the notebook (HP 15-f039wm ) and saw this. This is a 4gb stick, with an identical slot right next to it. This slot however seems to have none of the clips to support a second stick. So is this slot just nothing now then? And if so, is their by chance an 8gb version of the stick pictured there? Offered by HP or otherwise? Thanks











Solved!

A:Memory question

That is not a memory slot just the place on the motherboard where higher end versions of the same motherboard have a second memory slot actually built on. Your picture has quite a bit of glare so I cannot read the writing on the white label or on the memory stick but yes it can accept a single 8 gig memory module in the one slot there is. We can help you find one at a reasonable price. Walmart models are special built using components also used in higher end laptops but defeatured so they can be sold at the lowest possible price. Your laptop uses DDR3L-1600 SO-DIMM like this: http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technology-1600MHz-PC3-12800-KVR16LS11/dp/B00CQ35HBQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1414949008&sr=8-2&keywords=DDR3L-1600+SO-DIMM

I bought a PC133 512MB stick of ram from ebay. I got it today and placed it in one of my computers. It was a Dell Optiplex GX50. When I went to boot it all it did was beep. (Memory Issue) I pulled it from that computer. I then placed it in my HP 505w. My HP computer booted just fine to the desktop but my computer was only seeing ¼ of the computers total ram.

I booted to BIOS and there it said my ram was a 128MB PC100 stick

Can anyone tell me if it is possible that what I have is actually 512MB?

Why would my computer show it as 128MB PC100? They guy who sold it to my said it was a 512MB PC133.

A:Memory question

Is this for your Gateway, if so see here: http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/FX530_Series/1009172/1009172sp3.shtml

The board only supports up to 667Mhz for memory, if you install faster memory it will likely work but only at 667Mhz.

If you are not running a 64 bit version of Windows then you don't need more then 4GB, if you are then it may help to go higher but only for very certain circumstances.

I was wondering is it better to get a one gig stick of ddr or is it better to get 1 gig 2x512? I don't know what the differnce would be. Someone enlighten me please.
 

A:Memory Question

that depends on whether your motherboard supports dual channel memory. If it does, then you get a huge performance boost by running 2 matched 512MB sticks verses a single 1GB stick.

With dual channel, the system uses both memory sticks at the same time, doubling the memory bandwidth, this is clearly a much more efficient setup

With single channel, the system doesn't use the second stick until the first one is fully utilized, so with a single channel setup, it really doesn't which setup you choose

hope this answered your question

Hello,

I have a quick question about the use of memory strips. Somewhere I read that when using DDR2 memory strips you have to run them in matcheed pairs. In other words, if you have two matched strips of 1 Gbyte each which would give you two Gigs of memory, in order to achieve a desired 3 Gigs of memory, you have to insert a matched pair of two strips of 512 Megs. Or, can you just put another DDR strip of 1 Gig in the third slot without having to put another strip in the 4th slot?

I hope I've made myself understood. Thanks in advance for any help.

$19.99 After Rebate

Will these chips work on this motherboard?

They appear to be similar physically (240 pin).

Obviously, I have forgotten how I knew that the Kingston chips would work so am helpless right now in deciding which ones to buy.

Almost sure way to see if they would work is to compare the voltages. If they're both 1.8 or 1.9, or kingstons 1.9 and crucial 1.8, they will quite surely work.

RAM speed is much slower than the CPU and has been for many years. Producing RAM that could match CPU speeds would be prohibitively expensive. That is why computers have a first, second, and sometimes a third level data cache that contains a copy of the most frequently accessed data in RAM.

I'd get the 2 x 512MB sticks. Some Athlon64 processors will lower the memory speed if you fill all four slots, especially with double-sided sticks and with earlier Athlon64 processors. Using only two also allows you to add more memory at a later date if you need more then 1GB. Its also cheaper to buy 2 x 512MB sticks then to buy 4 x 256MB sticks in most cases.

A:question about memory

Won't hurt anything to "try" running them together. Though if it works it will use the slower speeds. And if it does work, run it on memtest for a good LONG time for stability. And then run it through its paces within Windows when the time comes.

Otherwise, it is best to stick with RAM of the same make and model.

And I've never heard of someone running to Frys to buy RAM temporarily for ONE day! You must be really impatient!
If you need more RAM then what you ordered, then order some more of the same.
That's my advice.

1) I would put 1.2 gb at startup as normal. It really depends on the no. and kind of apps and processes running. Offhand, I remember startup usage on 2 of my machines- one is about 1.25 gb, another around 1 gb.

2) Win7 is no stranger to memory leaks (apps not freeing memory when closed or memory usage just climbing on prolonged system usage).

Microsoft details Windows 7 memory leaks, hangs, freezes

A specific hotfix is described in that article, but generally speaking, keep windows and drivers updated- that may help. Other than that, rebooting the computer is the alternative.

3) Keep the pagefile at the windows managed size, esp. if you have large, memory hogging apps like Photoshop, WMC etc. running simultaneously.

Currently i have
Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Cas Latency 4
Timing 4-4-4-12
Voltage 2.2V
Well currently with my motherboard (GA-M55SLI-S4) i did my best to make into that settings but I dont think I did it correctly. Right now on CPU-Z it says my frequency is 2001MHz but jumps to 320MHz time to time, my CAS Latency is 4, and my timing it at 5-5-18-24(im guessing thats what things below cas latency means) i have also set my voltage to +.3(max). I heard that my default voltage was 1.8V so with .3 it would be 2.1v. My question how do I change the timing and is there a way to make voltage 2.2v?
 

A:memory question

There should be. First of all read your manual as to bios settings and how to change them. Now see if there are any bios updates that address memory voltage and or overclocking settings. If so install the newer bios. Next it is common with memory to default to slower settings. The faster timing usually only work with higher vdimm ie ram voltage. Once you set the correct vdimm, you can then set the faster timings.

I would test for errors with either memtest or prime95 [set to test ram] Having faster ram timing does no good if the system is not stable.

Hi all, I've got a Dell Dimesion 8200 with the PC800 RDRAM. It only came with 256MB and the PC800 is really expensive. My other computer has the PC2100 ram. I have shopped around and found that the price for the PC800 is outrageous and the PC2100 is more affordable. My question is, does what type of ram I put in it matter, can I swap the PC800 ram for the PC2100 without hurting anything? Thanks for your help in advance!

I just bought a new computer, but it only has 256MB of memory. I'd like to upgrade to 512, but I've never done that before. Is there anything specific I should look for? For example, do I need to buy the same speed memory as my other memory? Same manufacturer? Is there a noticable difference in manufacturers?

Hello Question about Question Memory Virtual Memory I just had a gig of RAM installed in my computer I had already Now comp prop says GB When I right click my computer then click advanced then click performance settings Memory Question There are options for settings The dot is in Custom on my machine Then I click advanced tab again It says Virtual Memory total paging file Memory Question size for all drives Memory Question mb Then I click Change and there is a dot in Custom Initial size mb in white box Maximum size mb in white box Then at bottom of box it says Minimum allowed mb Recommended mb Currently allocated mb Since I added new Ram should these settings be changed If so what should I change Initial size amp Maximum size to I did do research and it seems to be put in a number times the RAM But I am not sure which box to put that in it seems I need numbers initial and maximum Thank You Evenflow

Don't you have the option to let Windows configure your settings?

Is fast memory speed a must for gaming, or can a large amount of memory make up for slower memory speed?
 

A:Memory Question

It makes up for it, but what exactly are the speeds and sizes?

hey i would like to replace the memory i have in the machine . i am running
512DDR @ 266
my motherboard supports up to 3gb and supports dual channel @ 400

so i would like to know if its possible to change this to gain performance or does it have something to do with my processor as well , AMD 2400+ @ 2.0

i would like to get 3 sticks of this ->512MB DDR PC3200 400MHz

Just a quick one.........

I have some PC133 memory and would like to install it in my new PC which is a 2.8Ghz Athlon with an FSB of 133Mhz.

Can I use this memory in my new pc or not. The old memory and the new both look the same, but I'm just not sure whether to try it or not.

Will it damage my new machine if its not compatible or will it just refuse to start until I change it.

Please help

 

A:Memory Question

Probably not. New system do not use PC133 SDRAM. Your system would take DDR RAM, either PC2100, PC2700, or PC3200. DDR is Double Data Rate, its real clock is multiplied by 2 to get its effective speed. Hence 133 x 2 would be 266Mhz or PC2100.

SDRAM and DDR use different slots and voltages, any attempt to use SDRAM in a DDR would result in damage - there are notches in the RAM and slot to prevent you from doing so.

Also I think you have the clock speed mixed up with the model number of your CPU. You probably have an AMD Athlon XP 2800+ with a true clock speed of 2.25Ghz on a 333Mhz FSB (166Mhz x 2).

does anyone know a good simple way to find out what is taking up so much memory that i dont need and can stop, or somehow make use less memory? i just start my computer its already using 3.4 gigs of ram

A:Memory question

hi there
type resmon in the start menu search box and click on the result a window should pop up showing resource monitor (as in my snap shot) you will now be able to see what windows has allocated your ram. please post a screenshot to the thread.

Somebody told me that you can put PC 3200 memory in a PC 2100 mobo. Is that true? He said that the mobo will automotically slow it down so it will work. I am asking because currently PC3200 is cheaper than PC2100 and it will also be a better buy if I ever upgrade my mobo. Any help is greatly appreciated.....
 

A:PC memory question....

I wish I could give you a difinitive answer, but I can't.

My answer is "probably". Usually it works, and as your friend says your board will automatically downclock the ram to the speed it likes..... usually. Sometimes the older boards just don't like the newer ram and won't start up.

What motherboard do you have?

I had a friend ask what would question? What's better? Memory be better running Dual Channel Memory question? What's better? and a single MB stick PC or MB Dual Memory question? What's better? Channel PC s I m going with the s Dual Channel Either configuration would have a latency of He stated that he thinks I m wrong In my experience running IDENTICAL chips have always stomped mixin -n matchn I really don t want to post his explanation because it sounded stupid enough to be true and one of you might agree with him I will post his crazy a opinion after a few of the old dogs like Tripple ACandy JohnWill and the rest of you old dogs post You re only as fast as your slowest component right Or is my entire belief system going to change If this happens the world may actually stop moving causing the atoms of my monitor to instantly fuse with Memory question?

memory frequency's

Hi,
I have an Asrock p4v88 socket 478 motherboard and a stick of generic 256mb 333mhz and also a stick of kingston 512mb 333mhz. Everything was all fine and well untill I discovered that both CPU-Z and Everest home were clocking my ram at 100mhz which was far from what it was suposed to be. So I took out the 256mb generic thinking that was the problem. Then it went up to 133 and CPU-Z said FSB : DRAM 1 : 1+33mhz. but with both RAM sticks in it said FSB : DRAM 1:1 (my FSB is 100mhz). So I go to the BIOS and change all memory from AUTO to 333mhz. Still no good its the same.... anything im missing? What am I doing wrong?
Thanks Alot,
Jonathan
 

A:memory and fsb question

Hey,
Now that I have gone back into the BIOS and reset the memory settings back to AUTO it has gone back up to 266mhz (FSB : 1+33mhz)again which still isnt the 333mhz both sticks are made for but its better than 200mhz. Anyone have any clue whats going on here? Or any idea how to make it do FSB : 1+66mhz ??
Thanks

A few years ago, I added more RAM to my Gateway 650 Select desktop. With the Everest Home edition I can see now that I installed pc133 memory into my system which is set up for pc100. The thing seems to work fine with no problems. Should I take out the 133 and put in a 100 or is it okay to mix and match 100's and 133's?
(I currently have one slot with the original 64MB pc100 and the other slot has the 128MB pc133 in it.)
