Ok this laptop only takes SDram
The location of the ram is under the keyboard
Here's the instructions on how to get to it.
First shut down the laptop and disconnect any cables or whatever that is connected to it.
Then turn the computer over there is a security screw there remove that by turning counter clockwise.
Then take a paper clip and put it into the 4 keyboard releases which should be
1. right of the ESC key
2. between the F4 and F5 key
3.between the F8 and F9 key
4. right of the F12 key
Now you can lift the keyboard by tilting it up closest to the LCD towards you.
You will see a empty memmory slot which should be 1.
Put it in at a 45 degree angle and push down gently till it snaps in place.
Now you just reverse the way you took it apart and you should be all set
Happy Holidays

How to fit memory to laptop compaq armada e500


most hp/compaq laptops will have memory slots located under the keyboard, and sometimes an additional memory slot accessed through a panel on the bottom of the notebook.
In your case, you have 2 memory slots located under the keyboard. Officially, this unit only supports up to 256 mb memory modules for a maximum of 512 MB of memory so if you already have that, be aware that larger capacity memory modules may not work.

Added more ram but it's not working Compaq E500


what did you mean not working ?? didnt see the new Ram memory ?/ or didnt boot at all ....anyway ...when adding new ram memory ..first thing you do is to remove the Bios battery for to let bios on defaults and let it be able to read the new added unit ....second ...be sure the new added ram is compatible and in the same frequency ,then remove the battery like I said and in the last ...reinstall the operating system ....always look at the boot to see if the ram memory that is displayed is the same value with the one you know that actually is installed on the slots...it should work if this was just an option to make it faster ...and not a wild guess cause it use to have issues and didnt boot before...

Hi, a lot of these older laptops had their memory installed below the keyboard as is true for yours.

If you download this manual it will show you how to lift the keyboard and install additional memory.

Compaq Armada E500 - Increase Memory


Try one only 256 it should work now. You cannot use a 256 with a 64 it just will not work it is physically impossible. I know with some of those older models and Im picking yours is because you mention you were using 2x64. What you should have done was to buy two x 128 I am possitive your board can only handle 256mb of ram. Try the one only and if it works use that I dont think two of them will work not on that board?? Let me know ok. You might wanna clean your machine out with a software like this and its 30 days trial but has all features till it expires: http://www.tuneup.com. else if you dont want to take my advice on your laptop you can always go here: http://www.compaq.com
