Low memory on my compaq presario laptop


You just need to add more Ram Memory, nathancarol7.

What is the Compaq Presario's model number? It's on the Bottom of the laptop in a white Service Tag. P/N = Product Number, and the number I need. Post back in a Comment.

Then I can show you the Ram Memory module/s ('Stick'), it uses, and can guide you in installing.

General example of a SO-DIMM ram memory module, as used in a laptop,

Compaq presario m2000 notebook continuously beeps while starting up. The computer is very slow once fully logged in. Do you have any suggestions to fix these problems?


The beeping usually points to a RAM stick failure. If your laptop has two sticks of RAM then one of them has failed, which further explains the slow performance of the laptop once it's fully loaded.
To troubleshoot this issue, you'll need to remove one RAM stick at a time, and see if the laptop boots at all. When you have only one stick of RAM and the laptop does not load after the beep signal, then that installed RAM stick is bad. You may want to try and clean up the contacts with a cotton cloth and some alcohol just to make sure it's not an oxidized contact issue.

Which ram goes where?


Hi, There is no particular order from which you would put your RAM sticks into those slots. however, if the Slots are color coded (2 reds, 2 whites for example), you should put the same sticks in the same color. so make sure those 512mb sticks are both in red and your 1 gb sticks are both in white (colors were just set for example, actual ram slot color may vary). Those color coding were done to use the dual channel pairing of RAM sticks so the same type and speed of RAM sticks should be placed on same colored slots.

Installed New RAM in laptop. Led works but screen is blank.


did you check the type of RAM you are inserting maybe the RAM is not compatible
a ram has many specifications including the frquency at which it works

so check if you got the right ram for the laptop
the frequncy is something like 533, 800 Mhz so see the one you had originally and get the one required for the laptop

I have a compaq pressario 2200 notebook when i try to restart it after instaling things it wont start up all i get is a single beep and a black screen i cant hear the fan kick in and pushing the restet...


One of your RAM sticks might be bad.

Hopefully you have two RAM sticks. They are located behind one of the doors under your laptop.

Try removing one of the RAM sticks & fire the PC up with just one RAM stick installed.

If it still doesn't work, try removing the second RAM stick & replace it with the RAM stick you originally removed. Then try firing it up again.

If that works, try re-installing both sticks again. The contacts may have just been dirty & needed the RAM to be re-seated.

How much more memory can I install


This laptop can support up to a max of 1 GB of RAM , so if you buy 1 stick of 1 GB of RAM you need to take out the 768 MB and just put the 1 stick of 1 GB RAM, or your other option is to buy a 256 MB of RMA so your computer will still have a max of 1 GB of RAM and that would be cheaper and you can still use your old RMA on your laptop , this is the lin for the complete specs of your laptop http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Compaq-Refurbished-COMPAQ-P4-M-1-8GHZ-256MB-30GB-14-1-TFT-CDRW-W-XP

Hope that helps...........

What are the ram limits on a compaq presario 5000a. I put 256 ram in the compaq and it only reads 128. Why?


You can install up to 3 sticks of 512 mb of memory. Did you add a 256 stick to the already-existing 128? You need to put DDR266/PC2100 memory. To troubleshoot, remove the 128 stick and put your 256 in and see if it is recognized. You will know right away from the bios screen. Memory needs to be the same type.

The Bios on the laptop motherboard only will recognize a total of 1gig Ram. So the 256 stick would be removed and 2- 512 sticks installed.
