    fail to boot after changing memory card


    I have an old computer, which has a 2G memory card. I bought a 4 GB memory card. whenever i insert the 4 gb card with or without the old 2g memory card, WIndows failed to load. My computer is 64 bit, but I am running Windows 10 32 bit Home. Do i have to install Widows 10 64 bit before i can upgrade my memory card?

    32bit systems cannot address more than 4GB of memory but this not the reason for not booting. I have an 8GB system and I boot 64bit or sometimes 32bit. You may have a faulty or the wrong type of memory.

    However, ensure the memory is inserted properly and boot into the bios to check if the system can actually address the memory and while you are there, load default settings. Some older systems require to boot into the BIOS to refresh and recognize any change.

    As soon as you press the power button, press F2, Del or Esc button to view the BIOS screen, what is the model of your computer? Different make models need different buttons.
