Oh wow, I know I'm not totally Dumb now, lol.... Yes Hopefully my RAM will be here wednesday or thursday. Depends when they ship it. So until i figure out whats wrong i am deleting all users but the admin to find the causes of the problems. And I know if my ram fixes everything(which i honestly don't think it will) I am still going to buy a bigger grap[hics card, but not sure if it's nessasary to but a video card.


I am mostly find anything, lol.. on ebay that is. I thought about upgrading to XP media center edition 2005 or vista ultimate and found the software very cheap. also found a 750 GB harddrive for 120.00, loooool.

UHHH-OHHHH!!!!!

Another message....

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your PC.

If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new install, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory option such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your PC, press F8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

These are one and the same.

I doubt you'd want to do any sort of upgrading of the OS at this point, driver support is hard enough to come by with Windows Vista, let alone the fact that your current system is BSODing. Speaking of which, your last BSOD could be related to the RAM or it could be related to the Video RAM. We'll make sure the RAM works first before we look at the Video card.

I'm sure that's pretty frustrating. Save often is the only advice I can give you right now. I'll wait on what happens for you next week with the RAM.

That means that there is a problem with the RAM that you bought. Either it is incompatible or there it is malfunctioning. I'd suggest returning it for a refund and buying a different type. With the eMachines, they are very picky about which RAM will work in them. Also, you'll have to check what is the maximum amount of RAM you can install on your system.

Upon checking, it looks like the eMachines T3096 takes PC2700 DIMM RAM, so make sure that's the type of RAM you install.

Well this is what I was getting at before, I've worked on an eMachines system that I had to try RAM from three different vendors to find some that finally worked. One other thing is to make sure that the RAM is seated correctly. To answer your original question, you would want to remove your old RAM sticks.

eMachines T3096 Memory
Maximum Memory 2GB
Memory Slots 2 (2 banks of 1)
non-removable base memory 0MB

1 GB should be fine.

Actually I think the last time I had this problem, MemoryTen came through with compatible sticks:
eMachines T3096 Memory

It might have the same specs, but I doubt it is the same type. If you can't get it working, contact the seller and ask for a refund if possible. Although on the compatibility listing, I do not see any entry for your machine. Be careful what you buy on ebay, especially when dealing with computer components, try to make sure that it will work before buying.

Regards,

Ax
