How to add RAM TO MY COMPAQ Presario CQ56

First make sure that you can upgrade RAM on that type (look in the users manual), then buy the correct type and open up the machine. The user manual will also show you were they are installed.

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.

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.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60-212US PC Notebook and i was wondering is there any way i could add more memory to my graphic card. example share memory with my ram?


This will depend on what options you have in the Bios. Some systems will give you a fixed option and some base it off how much memory you have in the system. You Notebook will support 4GB of ram in two 2GG sticks. The link below will show you how to install them.

Also to be able to check the setting you may need to install a Bios update. The link below will take you to the download pages where you can download the Bios update from. Note if you have not ever done a Bios update before you might want to ask a friend to help you that has down one before because if you mess up the Bios update you can brick the computer.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

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

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

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.
