Default OT: Adding Memory to PC

     

When you add memory to a PC, is there any adjustments to BIO's that need to be made, so PC recognizes new memory?

Yes, but most of the computers will recognize the memory change and notify you at start up. You can also enter the bios and save the new settings, not changes need to be made, just enter bios and save and exit.

It should tell what keys to hit before the Windows splash screen appears.

Never heard anything like that.

Does it see the new memory?

Typically you don't need to do anything unless it says you need to (on initial boot). If you installed more memory and you are getting a ton of hard drive activity, you more than likely did not get the memory installed, it's broken, or it's the wrong memory and your computer can't see it/use it.

It says the memory is there, I am just curious. Someone told me in a conversation about resetting the bio's and I'd not heard of doing that.

I should rephrase my statement. I do not change the memory size in the bios. It reads the new memory size and you just save the new settings.

Sounds like you have some bad ram.

Memtest86 is a good way to test that

agreed it is important that you specify which one.

If you added more RAM did you use the same size and brand?

Or are you trying to set up your hard drives in some kind of RAID array??
