[Li 1718] memory upgrade problem

Postby Nikko » Tue Apr 01, 2008 2:11

I'm trying to upgrade memory fron 1gig to 2gig but the bios wont recognise it, still only sees 1gig.
Bios updated vers. Nov 2007.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thought i'd update this with the latest:
With a new 1 gig mem and original 500mb mem the bios sees it now, at least I've got 1.5 gig available now! Would still like 2gig though :cry:

I only have 894MB RAM because of graphic card taking so much.

And it was advertised as 1GB :(

It would help us if Fujitsu Tech guys answered these forum questions!
The computer is advertised that it can be upgraded to 2 gig, I have managed to get the bios to see 1.5 gig now by using one of the new 1 gig chips and one of my old 512 mb chip. It's better than nothing I suppose!

Have you tried ringing FSC support at their Helpdesk?

Don't Spain have a Helpdesk?

Where did you buy the laptop?

The helpdeesk in Spain says that it is not a warranty issue so they cannot advise
