Windows Xp Boot Error After Memory Upgrade

by R. Cautiously optimistic... According to the product sheet 2GB is the max for the system, and it has two slots, so I'll hazard that it doesn't support 2gb in a single slot. and 1 old 256ram and 1 128 old ram. my review here

  2. t I know it's not the ram.
  3. I realized that I under-ordered the amount of RAM needed and so I ordered 2GB more (2x 1 Gig sticks).

Windows boot process terminates with the error message I linked earlier. Or is it just mean that the memory module I bought is too new to be handled my computer? The new one is at 1066. The 1 GB RAM sticks are from Samsung.

I tried to find where to set it in BIOS but I see no option to do it. by VAPCMD / July 6, 2008 6:49 PM PDT In reply to: I am two versions behind...

pfffft! If the issue is not too much voltage in the RAM, could it be a matter of needing an updated BIOS version? (I haven't installed those two versions yet).Could it be Using Elemental Attunement to destroy a castle What are the alternatives to compound interest for a Muslim? Even thought those clips where their holding the ram in.

should I just proceed with the next steps then? –Blaine Feb 10 '14 at 23:00 NO! http://superuser.com/questions/354384/why-is-windows-not-booting-up-after-replacing-ram Being frustrated, I hit the reset button and went to the BIOS menu. Then just now I just put in all new ram back in. I know that particular memory stick won't run, but my question is more about determining if the machine will for sure take 8Gb.

I had 6Gb RAM installed and decided to remove 2Gb, and add another 4, for a total 8Gb. http://introbuilder.net/windows-xp/windows-xp-clipboard-memory-error.php Thank you very much for the suggestion. I then pressed on each ram card kinda hard. Really need the 64 bit version of Windows to fully use 4 GB or more anyway...

This is an easy thing to get done for me. It took me a lousy 5 days to get here. I'm new to the experience of updating BIOS. http://introbuilder.net/windows-xp/windows-xp-sp3-upgrade-error-access-denied.php Or if it won't work alone, it just won't work period.

I did not notice any improvement or degradation in the speed. Well, So far I tried many ways to stick the ram in. I had one go bad on an old frankenputer I had, and it would see the ram part of the time.

I meant the steps suggested after the bios update.

Thanks! I already knew it was not a RAM hardware issue as all the RAM sticks are working fine on the two Laptops. Then I tried the ubuntu 9.07 whatever the latest version it is. A matched set is still better, but this might work and since you already have it, it is worth the try.

I think i have seen this with a video driver, if only i could remember, it might be a thing to disable (run in copmpatability) first to test, because of the by CardsFan29 / July 10, 2008 2:11 PM PDT In reply to: I was going with the suggestion of another poster in sequence. I have two sister laptops with identical specs (Dell XPS M1530). useful reference I also wanted to understand what occurred here to prevent Windows from booting.

Just look up the machine on the manufacturers site, and you'll find the specs. –Satanicpuppy Dec 21 '10 at 16:06 So you are saying that all users will still If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check for viruses on your computer. Anyways, everything is fine now and working great. I looked inside and pressed a little more and heard a click and realized that one of the sticks wasn't quite all the way in.

Why was Susan treated so unkindly? I prodded around the computer for a bit longer just to be sure and then I shut down the computer. If there was a problem with a RAM stick or there was an incompatibility with the RAM timings or anything, POST would have failed. However, when I changed the RAM to 4 GB on one of the laptops, the PC booted up fine, and the BIOS detected the new RAM and showed the total RAM
