Re: Equium L20 - memory upgrade question


I have a L20, which I have the honour to upgrade the memory.

Could you please tell about the amount of ram I can install, type (ddr, ddr2), speed (6400 etc.), and the type of connector (dimm, so-dimm) and how many sticks it may take or any other things that I would need to know?

Many thanks for any help

  • Equium L20 - memory does not display correctly?

    Hi I just bought an Equium L20. First time I had a Laptop.In the card it says 256 MB memory. But when I checked the system it says I have 192 MB. Where's the other the 64 MB? Or am I just drive I thought.

    [Edited by: admin November 13 05 13:03]


    you really have to 256 MB of memory. But for the moment, your laptop uses only 192 MB, because the other 64 MB are used as additional video memory to the graphics card.

    By the way, you should be thinking of an upgrade of memory, 256MB is not so.

    Good bye

  • Equium L20: memory of 192 MB instead of 256 MB and slow

    I have an Equium L20, which is less than a year and began to run very slowly. It registers only 192 MB of memory, wherever it is physically a 256 MB chip in the machine. Is it because of the graphics card or is the problem why the laptop going really slow?

    I'm going to contact the support team to get this fixed under warranty


    Believe me, that the lower value of the memory is not a fault.
    Because you have acquired in your ad the 192 MB of RAM are related with the graphics card. I guess your laptop supports supported a shared memory graphics card and as a result, you get a lower central memory. The graphics card uses the 64MB of main memory. (256 64 = 192 MB)

    If everything is ok with your laptop and I think that the laptop is a bit slower because of many applications that are installed on your laptop, or processes that are run in the context of the BONE.

  • HP Probook b 6450 memory upgrade question

    Hi all

    I seem to have a strange question seeks to upgrade the memory in a HP 6450 b probook (i5 - 480 m & ATI card). The laptop came with 2 GB of sps p/n 598856-002, which is ram 1333 mhz 1.5V with the manufacturer being ramaxel. I ordered and installed a few sticks of kingston 4 GB

    Mounted to them and all appeared to be as well as the operating system (win 7 32 bit pro) showed the recognized as 8 GB stick and 3 GB usable, the bios also reported 8 GB as well. However the moment that a 64 bit OS (Linux or Windows) is tempted to run just the laptop falls down or crashes

    I already tried this upgrade with two sticks of crucial memory but had exactly the same problem, so think about crucial memory was the question I put to the supplier and ordered the kingstons rather.

    I saw very similar question mentioned here:


    My instinct suggests this notebook can be very picky about the memory chips, it may have to be a 4 GB key 16 chip versus chip 8 4 GB sticks.

    Thoughts and help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    You are the very welcome.

    Yes, I have never, ever install any module of memory in my notebooks from HP that does not 16 chips.

    All the chips I use - 2 gigs and up, have 16 chips (8 on each side).

    Never had a problem.

  • 9150 memory Upgrade - Question once again

    Good day to all,

    I have 2, Dimension 9150 who receive upgrades. The first machine was fine with OS WIN 7 / 32 PRO. Updated BIOS (A07), not installed the required software, no problem, everything no problem. RAID driver install also, no problem. Problem I have is the memory upgrade. Get machine 2 update, but not until this problem is resolved.

    Been revised post old topic of memory and still has not found an absolute remedy to my question. Machine (1 and 2) are 2 GB; 4 512 PC2-4200 (all locations showing on bios config).  I installed 4; 1 GB PC2-5300. Problem? Must not like system accepts 4 GB maximum and is also accepted speed Max.

    My problem is 2 GB in slot 1-2 (white) are good, no problems (boots to windows without error beeps). Check the BIOS and find sticks of memory are reading fix it. When I add the other 2 sticks of 3-4 (black), error on boot beeps and lights 1-3 lights telling me memory error.

    I recently updated a dimension 4700 and used memory not dell Komputer Bay. Could see all the modules and showed 3.76, so I bought the same memory for this machine. I know that in the past, Dell machines are "FINICKY" when it comes to memory.

    Is this the case? If so, Crucial memory has been discussed and I might add 2 (2 GB each)? That's what I was not able to see the answers. Part of the crucial says Yes, post only memory. The other Yes was that I could use sticks of 2 GB. Spec note 1 GB is max stick, per slot.

    I am at a loss, if you're looking for an idea on a direction.

    Yes, low density 2 rank INTEL chipset compatible ram works fine. The other way to say it isn't that 380 Precsion ecc ram works fine.   The GX620 has the same problem where we will see more ram by the bios but total ram is limited to 4 concerts by the chipset.  Upgrade to a precision 380 allows a full 8 gigabytes of ram.

    You could put 4 x 2 gig and he would show even in the bios but the ram would not be usable and the machine does not start with 64 bit OS.

  • HP 21-2014: HP 21-2014 in a computer, Ram memory upgrade question

    Hello, I have a HP 21 2014 all in one computer. He now has 4 GB Ram memory and an AMD processor. I was wondering how it would be possible to increase the Ram up to 8 GB. Is there a certain number of model or brand of Ram do I need to buy? I looked a few things on Frys Electronics, but obviously I'm naïve. I really want to upgrade memory because I have some games which really lag on this computer, even if it is new, and I know it takes more may work properly. I wanted to see if someone can point me in the right direction. Price is not really a problem, I just want to know what would be a better job for this specfic HP model. Thank you!


    Yes, you can upgrade to 16 GB:

  • Equium A60-692: memory upgrade question

    Hi, I want to improve my memory. I wanted to add a memory of 1 GB on the extra slot but I wanted to be sure that I'm looking for, I don't know much about it and I want to ensure I have buy one that is compatible with everything. If someone knows something about this answer please.
    Thank you


    Well, you're first time here in the forum ;) Welcome!

    Now to your question. AFAIK the Equium A60-692 was delivered with an internal memory of 256 MB. This module cannot be deleted.
    Additional memory location is available and you can upgrade the memory for max 1280MB (256 MB + 1024 MB) in this case, you can use a 1 024 MB module.

    You use PC2100 DDR - RAM memory modules.
    Also, I found one that you can use without any problems. The reference is: 1024Mo PC2700 (PA3313U-1M1G)

  • Equium L350 - 10L - memory upgrade question


    I have the Equium L350 - 10L. Is it possible to upgrade the memory on my laptop. For the moment, it has 2GB (2x1GB).

    Thank you

    Of course you can upgrade the RAM.
    Did you look in the manual that was stored on the laptop?
    I think that you should do this it can you did many details, photos and any other information regarding the upgrade of RAM.

    Check the memory extension Chapter 8 option aircraft.

    In addition, you should know that if you would upgrade the RAM to 4 GB then your 32-bit Windows system will see ONLY 3.2 GB.
    So if you want to use full 4 GB, you will need to change the operating system to 64-bit.

    In my opinion, 3 GB of RAM are more than enough

  • Equium A100-338 - memory upgrade question.


    first post here. I just got myself an A100-338 and it comes with 2 x 512 MB memory sticks ddr2 pc2-4300 and I want to add an extra GB 1. What I have to buy 2 x 512 MB sticks or can I buy the 1 x 1 GB stick? Does make a difference if you mix different sizes of memory?

    Thank you

    Hi Jonathan

    What do you do?
    You want to upgrade the memory to 2 GB?

    How do you upgrade the memory to 2 GB using 512 MB modules? ;) 4 x 512MB?
    Sorry, but something like that is not possible.

    The laptop supports only 2 memory slots
    That's why you should use the module memory 2 x 1024Mo. Do you agree?

  • Tecra M7 memory upgrade question

    Hello everyone, I would like to upgrade the RAM on my Tecra M7, which came with 1 GB and is supposed to get a free site available. Since the system's maximum memory is 4 GB, I guess you can use up to 2GB stick into each slot.

    My question is: can I have a 1 + 2 GB configuration (with / 3GB in total) or modules should be combined for better performance (1 + 1 GB) DDR2? I read somewhere something memory dual channel working only with identical memory modules, but I'm not an expert so I don't know?

    Any idea anyone?

    Of course, you can mix the sizes of memory. It s nothing unusual!
    You can use different memory module sizes, but you should be 100% sure that both modules supports the same specifications as DDR2 533 MHz (PC2-4200)

  • Satellite A105-S4064: memory upgrade Questions


    I plan on upgrading the ram in my Toshiba A105-S4064 (preinstalled with 512 MB). I wanted to discover a few questions, if I could.

    First of all, what RAM would be compatible to install in housing, no?

    Second, the size of the new RAM should be the same as the RAM that is already installed (in other words, 512 MB)?

    In addition, only adding the new RAM to a laptop invalid warranty Toshiba?

    Thank you very much for your help!


    I see that you have several questions about upgrading memory on your A105
    OK I'll try to make the best, I hope ;)

    Firstly you can upgrade the memory and the warranty still valid
    Upgrading memory hasn t any bad influence on the validity of the guarantee

    Second, you can mix the sizes of memory. … for example, you can use 256 + 512 or 512 + 1024 MB, etc.
    This is possible because you can upgrade it to 4 GB max

    And now finally something you kind of compatible modules it looks like you could use a DDR2 PC2-4200 533 MHz modules

    I hope this info will help you :)

  • HP Pavilion dv7t Entertainment PC Memory Upgrade Question

    Product name: HP Pavilion dv7t-2000 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC


    OSOriginally installed: Windows Vista 64-bit Home Premium

    Currently installed OS: Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium

    When I bought the laptop, HP included a "FREE upgrade to 4 GB DDR2 memory (2 Dimm) 2 GB DDR2 memory (2 Dimm) system system'. I don't check then. Now, when it is slow, I checked the memory installed by 'Start-> computer-> (right click)-> properties-> installed memory (RAM). It shows that 2 GB.

    I'm baffled why it shows only 2 GB of RAM now, when HP was supposed to install 4 GB. In any case, I would like to upgrade memory now.  I have referred to as "HP Pavilion dv7 Entertainment PC. Maintenance and Service Guide "."  He describes the memory Module as:

    Spare part number description
    Memory 2048 MB (1-DIMM 667 MHz, PC2-6400),: 480382-001
    Module memory 1024 MB (1-DIMM 667 MHz, PC2-6400),: 480381-001
    Module of 512 MB memory (1-DIMM 667 MHz, PC2-6400),: 480380-001

    I can't install module memory 2 x 4 GB to 8 GB? Will it be recognized by the card mother/BIOS/Windows?

    Thank you for your expert advice.

    You are the very welcome.

    Here is the link to the service manual for your laptop.

    Please see Chapter 4, page 54.

    It seems to me that there are two memory slots (one almost on top of the other). Take a look at the illustration.

    This is why the memory in Chapter 1 specifications indicate that you can install up to 8 GB of memory (2 x 4 GB).

    You can install a single chip PC2-6400 4 GB and leave the one you have in there now.

    It comes to the module memory 4 GB good cheaper brand I could find.

  • Tecra 720cdt: memory upgrade question

    I'm looking for 1 oiece 128 MB of memory (MAX)? for my 720cdt. Can someone help me as to a place that I can get this or does anyone have good used sweater, that they no longer need.
    Just tell me what you need.

    Thank you


    Wow, that's a really an oldie.
    To my knowledge it s about 10 years.
    What do you what to do on this old notebook?

    In any case, I remember that the slot of memory could be at the bottom of the unit.
    Am I wrong? In addition, you can use module max memory 128 MB and the memory can be upgraded to 144 MB. Why? Because as far as I know that this unit should have internal 16 MB memory and it cannot be removed.

    I searched a bit on the net and found information that this module memory must be compatible:
    PA2046U 128 MB

    These modules you should be able to order the Toshiba service partner in your country.

  • NB250 - 10G of memory upgrade question

    We recently bought a number of Netbooks NB250 - 10G, some have been ordered with 2 GB of memory and others with 1 GB. For a few machines of 1 GB, 2 GB expansion modules were purchased to subsequent to 2 GB (Correct Toshiba KTT1066D3 Kingston DDR3 / 2G).

    When upgrading memory is installed, when the netbook is started it turns on, then turns off, then lights up - this cycle continues. I tried a lot of modules KTT1066D3 / 2G and all do the same thing in any netbooks NB250 - 10G that were shipped with 1 GB.

    Subject 2 GB modules work in subject NB250 - 10G bought with 2 GB. _No_ 2 GB modules work in _any_ NB250 - 10G bought with 1 GB.

    Both the NB250-10Gs comes with 1 GB and 2 GB have same bios version (1.3) and the bios settings.

    After a quick web search, this is a known issue.

    Help, please?

    Thank you very much

    In my view, Akuma is good and there is a compatibility problem between NB250 and what type of memory Kingston.
