Adding Mem to GT5228


Recommended Posts

I was trying to add the VS2GBKIT533D2 to my GT5228. After looking at your mem configurator I noticed that it only shows the VS1GB533D2 mem modules as being compatible. I only saw 1G of added mem at first when I installed the kit. I removed and reinserted a few times and now I am seeing an added 1.25Gs of added ram. Do I need to return the VS2GBKIT533D2 and get 2x VS1GB533D2s due to a compatibility issue? Thanks in advance.

No VS2GBKit533D2 is made with two VS1GB533D2 modules.

I think there are some steps you need to go threw to reset the system BIOS so it will see all of the memory.


For MacBooks and MacBook Pro's you can reset the firmware parameters (basically clearing BIOS) by using the following:


Shut down the computer, then start it back up while immediately holding the following keys: Command, Option, P and R. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the third time.
