I'am Expert at Hardware and software but faced a problem made me like novice ,
my PC is Fujistu P2510 which accept up to 4 GB DDR2 ,
my PC had 512 MB DDR2 PC2 4200 on 1 slot and the other slot is empty
I tried to upgrade RAM to 2GB (2X1GB) but the system is beep 4 time , I removed 1GB and the same sound (4 beeps)
I changed RAM and also slots and the same sound (4 Beeps) , I put the old 512 MB DDR2 at first slot and the other 1GB it is work fine but the actual RAM is only 1 GB . I exchange the slots and its run good with the same size (only 1 GB).
so >>>> the PC will stop 4 beeps only when the old 512MB is already at any one of slots either that will beeps
when i tried the crucial scan !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG the scanner says slot number 1 contains 1GB DDR2 and the other slot is empty. but actually one slot have 1GB DDR2 and the other slot have 512MB DDR2
my BIOS is up to date . and I rested the BIOS by Battery removing ... but the same problem appears
note: the new 1GB DDR2 is PC2 6400
can any one help me to slove my problem.
Many Thanks in Advance

It sounds like you may have the wrong memory for the laptop, what is the exact model number of what you purchased?
