Try a different brand of memory.

It is unlikely you can do anything with the memory you have to fix this problem.

The memory has the same specs as what another manufacturer recommends.

Be careful buying from auctions as they MAY be gradeouts. Always make sure you can return the product. Crucial has these for about $114 for your machine as an example.

My Compaq R3000 does not charge up


The problem might be the battery itself. Four years is a long time for rechargeables. Also, check if the error ocurs when the battery is not in the slot.

Laptop won't stay on


it might as well be a internal problem related to power or loose contacts with RAM or the power chords internally.
Better to go to the technician in this case.
Your first Battery would have been fine too..
