Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My computer says in the product that is is a c700, but down in the small box next to the

When I run it through crucial for ram scan, it compes back as the c700 cto, which seems to be the lowest of the c700 series....even if not, I'm curious as to why it says c770us on the bottom of the sticker next to where it says "service tag" I want to upgrade to 3gb because I'm always maxed out, and every sign except that stinking scan says that I can. Why would my slot not hold a 2gb if it hold a 1gb.......can't any 32-bit system run 3gb? Don't worry about the small details in my question if you know the main answer. Thanks in advance

WHAT ARE THE SPECIFICATIONS


Each computer contains two important components---a Central Processing Unit (CPU) and memory chips. The CPU and memory chips work together to process computations within your computer. You can't have one without the other. Your computer has a base amount of memory installed, 512 Megabytes or higher, that can be expanded to beyond 1 Gigabyte, in most cases. Before you upgrade your computer's memory, you need to know what type of RAM your computer takes: SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM), Rambus DRAM (RDRAM), DDR (Double Data Rate SDRAM) or other type.

Open your computer's Internet browser by clicking on the program's icon on your computer's "Desktop," this applies to both Windows and Mac platforms. Enter www.crucial.com/systemscanner/index.aspx in the URL box at the top of your browser's screen. The "Crucial System Scanner" tool application website will open. Click on the check box next to the wording "By selecting this box and clicking the download the scanner button, I agree to the Terms and Conditions." Click on "Download the Scanner." The "Opening CrucialScan.exe" dialog box will open. Click "Open" or "Run" to download and set up the program directly. Click "Save" or "Save As" to save the program's setup file on your computer if you don't see the "Open" or "Run" option or you are using dial-up or a slow Internet connection. The program will download and setup on your computer if you selected the "Open" or "Run" option. Navigate to the directory where you want to save the file, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option. Select the "Desktop" if you have a hard time locating downloaded files on your system. Double click on the "CrucialScan.exe" icon to open the program, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option. Click "Run" when prompted with the "Open File -- Security Warning." The "CrucialScan.exe" program will run and appear in your computer's Internet browser. Scroll to the second section on the "Memory upgrades from Crucial.com -- Determine My Memory Needs" website. The section is labeled "Your XXXXX Specifications." The "XXXXX"s represent your computer's brand and model. Locate the wording "Each memory slot can hold..." Write down the this sentence on a piece of paper---this is the type of RAM your computer accepts. Click "File," "Print," "OK" to print this website, if you have a printer attached to your computer. If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible Hope this helps.

I have a compaq presario c700 with intel celeron it has a ram of 1gb but i want to extend it to 2 or 4 gb is it possible???


One good and easy way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.

This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM you currently have installed and what type it is.

It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity is for each slot and the total capacity for that motherboard.

If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to get to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.

If you choose to rate this solution by clicking on the YES THIS WAS HELPFUL icon, I thank you very much for your time and consideration.

I want to upgrade my memory on my Pavilion 513n,


FixYa is a product support website, and as such we do not delve into manufacturing. No we cannot supply ram memory.

I can supply you with the solution to your questions, however.

This is HP Support, and the main page for the Pavilion 513n Desktop PC,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=90384&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=5&submit.x=6&lang=en&cc=us

If you click on > Product information > Product specifications > HP Pavilion 513n Desktop PC Product Specifications,
you can view,

A) What type of ram memory the computer uses,
B) How much is the Maximum Total Amount for the computer,
C) How much is the Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot,
D) How many ram slots

Look under the Memory heading.
A) What type of ram memory
Type - DDR
It's DDR Sdram

Speed - PC1600/PC2100
Tells you either PC1600 can be used, or PC2100.

PC1600 is DDR Sdram that operates at 200MHz.
PC2100 is DDR Sdram that operates at 266MHz.

{To expound:
Ram memory operates at a Frequency Rate. Slang for frequency rate is 'Speed'.
Mega = approximately 1 Million
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second
Example: PC2100 is DDR Sdram that operates at 266 Million Cycles per Second }

B) What is the Maximum Total Amount for the computer. (Motherboard)
According to HP it is 1GB.

{Maximum - 1GB (2 X 512) HP recommended maximum}

I believe this to be wrong. The Total Maximum Amount is 2GB.
1GB per ram slot.

I base this upon using the memory configurator's of several websites, that sell ram memory for the Pavilion 513n desktop computer, and looking at what the motherboard chipset for the Pavilion 513n will support.

The motherboard chipset is the Intel 845GL.
This chart found on Wikipedia, states what the Intel 845GL chipset will support,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets

As you can see reading across from the 845GL subheading, and looking under > Max.memory, 2GB is listed.

Sources for online memory configurators,
1) Crucial.com
2) Tigerdirect.com
3) Newegg.com
4) Memory4less.net

In this case,
C) Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.

D) There are Two ram slots. {Proper speak for ram Slot is ram Bank}

Kingston is a good brand for economical ram memory.
So is Ultra.

An easy way to find out what type of ram memory you need, and how much is the Maximum Total Amount, as well as the Maximum Amount for Each ram slot, is to use an automatic scanner from a website that sells ram memory.

The above four websites listed, are but a small handful of the total websites online that offer an automatic scan.
Let's use Crucial.com for an example.

On the main page,

http://www.crucial.com/

,you will see - Scan My System, in blue.
Simply click on it to run an automatic scan of your computers hardware.
Doesn't look at your personal effects, just the hardware of your computer.

After the scan is done, you will be presented with the ram memory info you need.
Several options of ram memory are presented for you to choose from.
