Added ram and it does not register - E-Machines PC Desktops


Answers :

More than likely the ram you purchased is not compatible with your processor. Most memory looks similar and often people think that as long as the pin count is correct that the memory will work but that's rarely true.

I would first go to the memory manufacterers website and see if that memor has been tested with your system. As a side-note if you bought the memory off ebay its pretty much guaranteed not to work.

Try going into your bios setup and see if it recognizes 1 stick at a time. If the biios fails to see it there isn't much that can be done.

try visiting a site like newegg.com they have a memory configurator that will give you an idea of what will work with your system.

Hope that helps
There is a possiblity that you either put in bad memory, too large or a capacity of memory or the slot is damaged.

\015\012Usually when this happens the memory stick that you placed in is too small or to large for the slot. each motherboard has a specific capacity for memory. Check the model's capacity and divide by the slots to see how big a stick each slot can take.

\015\012you may also want to check the brands compatibility with your board or chipset. some memory does not work in all boards even if it is the size and style for it.
