Hi

I have an "i-Buddle" (Excel model 532 is all the sticker says on the back).

Specs:  1ghz cup, 256RAM, 40gb HDD

I have a 512 RAM chip from another laptop.  When I plug this RAM in, the screen just stays blank, and doesnt boot up the computer.  I have taken the chip back out, checked the bios but have seen nothing to suggest this wont work.

Is it just a case of not having the same size RAM and therefore getting some sort of conflict?

Part two:  Can I upgrade the existing RAM to 512 and add this new ram to give me 1GB.  User manual says that the computer is upgradeable to 2GB.  If I can, any idea where the existing 256 is and is it just a case of taking it out and putting in the new chip?

Cheers

Is this the same model as your notebook?  If so, then it clearly states it supports 2x200pin 2.5V DDR 266/333 SDRAM modules.  Make sure the RAM you are trying to put in it has those specifications.  The same information can be found on the ECS website.

Hi

That is definately my computer.  The RAM chip I have is a 512mb DDR 333 CL2.5 from an HP lappy that my mate got annoyed with and threw on the ground!!! -  so specs seem to match up.

Do you think it may be that I'm putting a 512 with a 256 (standard)?  I know back in the old days you had to have ram upgraded in pairs, so maybe this is the problem?

Any idea where the original 256 RAM is, and can I just take that out and put the new chip in to at least give me 512mb RAM?

Cheers for the reply.
