Hello,

that is ok , however, you have to take consideration if your motherboard can carry 1gb ram..(pls see documentation about your PC). that is the basic way in speeding pc. If you use two 512mb, it should be the same brand so that there is no hardware complication.

It would be a good idea you will see some difference but not that dramatic. if your doing picture editing or word processing it would perform great.

I have compaq presario 2.6ghz with Max Capacity 1gb Ram- is there anyway i can increase capacity to 2gb or even higher?


Unfortunately, if the manufacturer states that the max RAM supported is 1GB, that's going to be all you're going to be able to install - unless you replace the motherboard. This can be a considerable expense.

One last thing you could do is go to Crucial - there, you can run a scan on your computer to find out what memory options you have. I would be very surprised to learn they differ from what Compaq is telling you (unless the motherboard was replaced by someone already).

Please rate this reply - good luck!

Hp Compaq dx2200 MT RAM Problems


Firstly, you have to know that you can upgrade RAM as Double or Half of your pre-installed RAM. For example, like your pre-installed RAM is 256 MB, you can only upgrade RAM of capacity 128 MB or 512 MB. Secondly, check your previous installed RAM's speed that is shown in Ghz. You can only upgrade RAM to its similar speed, otherwise you get slow performance of PC.

Hi! Can I add yet more RAM to my PC?


Whether you will get an increase in speed or not depends on which operating system you are using and what applications you are running. If you are just surfing the web and running spreadsheet or word processing - I doubt you would see much difference. If you go to www.crucial.com and let it scan your system - it will tell you what upgrade options you have.

New ram not speedy


well, the lowest speed of those rams will be effective for all rams. If you install same sized ram on 1st and the 3rd port, it should be run on dual channel mode and will be fastest possible. please try this if you have 4 ports.

Want to buy more RAM..


Your dell dimension takes DDR ram. These are the specs:

Supported pin types: 184 pin DIMM (regular desktop DDR ram)
Supported memory types: DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200
Supported speeds: 333mhz or 400mhz
Supported stick sizes: 128mb, 256mb, 512mb or 1gb.
MAXIMUM MEMORY ALLOWED: 2gb (2 x 1gb sticks)


If you buy two of these you will max out for ram and give you the best performance::

I do not know which model of compaq deskpro I have, But I have used a couple ram cards from another compaq... it increased the ram but the video(from youtube for example) freezes... what can I do to fix it...


If you added more ram to the computer that is a slower speed, the memory will run at a lower speed overall. Even if one stick is faster, they will run at the speed of the slower memory. I would check that. Sometimes it slows your computer down to increase the ram if you decrease the speed.
If its the same speed, you can usually increase your video dedicated memory in the BIOS settings.
Good Luck!

You need paired memory - and if you are using two pairs, they must be the same speed (there is a big difference between 33Mhz and 677Mhz)
