    According to the Compaq Evo N610c Maintenance and Service Guide, The max size specified by HP is 40GB for this model. This drive is known as an ATA-5 IDE drive. I probably wouldn't recommend going over these specs. The 60GB drive was the max size for the N620c.

Physically the 160 GB drive will fit. I looked at the manual and it just listed 60 GB. But having worked on many Compaq and HP laptops, I would say that you should not have any problems installing it and it being seen as a 160GB. logically.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Compaq evo n610c 1gb ram is support for windows 7


Not at all!!
I've installed Windows7 in my n610c (with !gb ram) and my laptop is perfectly working.
Windows 7 is not the 'awful' Vista!!!
The most important things are W7 drivers for this laptop. In order to obtain these drivers, you've to download and install 7zip, then you've to expand in folders the exe files of audio ,video, etc.  drivers of windows xp, and let the system find the suitable drivers..
InstallingXP drivers (exe files) in W7  is not possible!

Also ram may be increased over 1Gb, but you've to install the O.S.
after having upgraded your ram, otherwise graphic card will be not working, even reinstallig its driver!!!
I've just made these operations in two Compaq evo n610c, successfully.
I'd  a problem only for Infrared port, but I've fixed it 'asking' system to find the driver into an external usb HDD full of drivers of various PCs. After a few time , also Infrared port driver was OK.
I've made a backup od windows7 drivers (you may use double driver(free) or Windriver Ghost (not free), in order to backup w7 drivers.
Regards

HDD Upgrading


mshahzad_nas,

Of cause you can upgrade the hdd to 160GB, the system will detect it, don't worry.

Meanwhile, make sure you have the drivers ready for all the hardware, as new new hdd need to be install with a new windows, and u will need the driver for all the hardware to function properly, like wifi and video.

In case you lost your driver disc, here's the link for you to download

Your rate for my solution is much appreciated, thanks.

Can I install 1gb of ram on a compaq evo n610c


Yes, Memory Upgrade for Compaq Evo N610C, the Compaq Evo N610C takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs to a max of 1gig - and two 512 would be perfect.

The memory modules in a Compaq Evo N610C are not located where you expect them to be.
Here's how to do it.
Open the notebook, and place your fingers on the keyboard as if you were going to type. There is a panel directly beneath your left palm, just below the Ctrl and Alt keys. The panel is hooked into the front of the frame closest to you. Using a thin flathead screwdriver or knife blade, apply a bit of pressure on the panel so that you're pushing it towards the LCD while prying it up. The panel will come right off and you'll have direct access to the memory modules.

According to this link, the memory of Compaq Evo N610c can be upgradable to 1024 mb.

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11382_div/11382_div.HTML

Memory Upgrade for Compaq Evo N610C, the Compaq Evo N610C takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with of Memory. You can upgrade your Compaq Evo N610C to up to a maximum of 1.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with standard Memory installed. For best system performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your system. (Souce: http://www.memorystock.com/memory/CompaqEvoN610C.html)

So you have to install 512mb memory module on each slot to make up 1024mb of memory.

Did you install 512mb memory module on each slot or did you just install 1GB memory module in one slot?

Try to go back to 256mb RAM and see if you will have the same blue screen error. If you did not receive any blue screen, try to add memory into it or just insert 512mb first and then oserve again if you will have the blue screen error.

You may also want to go to these links for other suggestions.
