Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Too much RAM for my system

\015 I have tried to install more RAM to my computer. I now get a message that I have installed more Ram than the system can handle. How can I utilize all three of the RAM slots available to me in this computer? Is there a limit on how much I can pit in? If so, how can I change that setting? I currently have 512 mb of PC133 sdram. Ser # 0021674621 Thank you for your help.\015

Answers :

In your post you stated that your motherboard #D185EEAAAA19243-043. After looking at the Intel website I did find the motherboard # of D815EEA. This motherboard is only capable of managing 512MB of ram.
\015\012Here is the link to the Intel motherboard manual.
\015\012I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. I could not find the 185 motherboard on their web site.
\015\012If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Gateway uses serial numbers instead of model numbers to access their support site, but if you go there by clicking here, enter your ser.#, and look at the specifications for your product support they will tell you the maximum it can handle. You can't exceed that without swapping motherboards. Unfortunately, if you've reached that limit, the only way to tweak your system is with disk cleanup, perfomance adjustments and streamlining startups, etc. But this can have a significant impact. See articles like this for more help.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
