Having problems with your Gateway FX542X INTEL QUAD CORE 2 1TB DESKTOP GAMING COMPUTER WIN Vista Ultimate 64 Bit ?

I tried to upgrade my system to 8mb of ram. With 8mb's installed it will not boot. It will however boot with 7mb's installed. The config is 3 2gb sticks and 1 1mb stick. I checked all the 2 gig sticks and they are all working. What can I do to solve this problems.

Answers :

I think you have your mb and gb confused.
\015\012Traditional wisdom says the memory sticks should be the same, the same speed, the same size, same brand, etc.
\015\012You are saying here that you have 3 each 3 gb sticks and one each 1 mb stick. This is a very strange combo to my way of thinking.
\015\012May I suggest you have www.4allmemory.com perform a free on line scan of your computer and see what they recommend.
\015\012You do know to follow static electricity precautions when you are working inside your computer, right? Unplug the computer - really - and ground yourself and stay grounded to the computer while you are working on it - NO EXCEPTIONS! If I were working on your computer, I would think you would expect no less from me.
\015\012Please let me know what happens ...
