Having problems with your eMachines T5212 PC Desktop ?

How do I tell me emachine T5212 to recognize newly installed ram?

\015 I just installed a 1gb ddr stick and am trying to get the computer to notice the ram increase. The directions that came with the stick said to follow the instructions in my computer owner manual, but my system did not come with one.\015

Answers :

The Ram specifications for your model are:
1024MB DDR2 (2 × 512MB), 533MHz (PC4200)
Expandable to 2GB

If you are using Microsoft Windows, the operating system will recognize the memory by itself, there is nothing you have to do. Go to your start menu, right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties". In the lower right corner of the "General" tab, you can read the amount of memory available to you.

If you want to know how to put RAM into your computer, have a look at this web page - it's a good video instruction. Make sure not to touch any of the electronic parts on the stick itself - try to hold it on the side.

If your computer does not recognize the newly installed RAM it can have different reasons:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. The RAM is bad. Nothing you can do but send it back and get it replaced.
  2. \015\012
  3. You got the wrong RAM. Look at Crucial's webpage (link) and compare the specs with what you've got. They are very reliable and the memory I bought from them always worked.
  4. \015\012
  5. It is possible that you have to install the RAM in pairs. (eMachine's web page (link) has no download for a manual and does not cover this topic.) It means, that either both memory slots have to be populated or even populated with the same kind of sticks (2 x 512MB, 2 x 1GB).
Solution: try to replace one of your old sticks with the new 1GB stick and see if that increases your memory. If that doesn't work, take both of the old sticks out and put the new 1GB stick in the slot closest to the CPU (look at the video: it's that unit with the fan on top). If that doesn't work either, try the other slot.
Last resort would be to contact eMachine. You can either use LiveChat or call them. The contact info is on their web page.

If all fails, come back here and leave a comment including what you did. I will check back and then we go from there.

Good luck!
