I want to upgrade my Laptop NX 5000 RAM which is currently 256 mb. Please suggest in details what type of ram is reqd i.e. DDR, DDR1/2 and what about 180/200 pins


You can upgrade to 2GB.
(1024MB.
512 MegaByte + 512MB = 1024MegaByte
1024MB = 1GigaByte )

It is DDR Sdram.
(Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory)

It is also SO-DIMM, as used for laptops.
(Single Outline Dual Inline Memory Module)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SO-DIMM

There are 200 gold plated contact pins. 100 on each side,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1GB_DDR2_SO-DIMM.png

Note the Locating Notch on the bottom, and how it is off to one side.
Note the Side Notch on each side.

There is a Locating Lug in the bottom of the ram memory slot, for the laptop.
The ram memory module must be turned to the Locating Notch lines up with the Locating Lug.

There are spring clips on each side of a ram memory module.
The tops of the spring clips are eased to the outside.

This allows a bump, or protrusion on the spring clip, to come out of the Side Notch.
When the ram memory module is ensured to be seated correctly, in the ram memory slot, the spring clip 'bump' will be in the Side Notch.

A laptop ram memory module is removed AT AN ANGLE!
NOT too much more than the angle it is in, when installed in the ram memory slot.

After the two spring clips are eased out, the ram memory module will pop up a little bit.
Slide it out AT THAT ANGLE.

If you it up to a straight up position, you will damage the gold plated contact pins of the ram memory module, and the contact pins in the ram memory slot.

Damage the contact pins in the ram memory slot, and you are looking at motherboard replacement.

Everywhere on the ram memory module is the BODY, except for the gold plated contact pins.
Handle the ram memory module by the Body.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.


[ DDR Sdram IS DDR1. Double Data Rate Sdram.
DDR2 Sdram is Double Data Rate 2 Sdram.
DDR3 Sdram is Double Data Rate 3 Sdram,

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR_SDRAM

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR2_SDRAM

3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR3_SDRAM

It is the Technology used, not referring to the size ]

DIMM for desktops, Dual Inline Memory Module
SO-DIMM for laptops.
Single Outline Dual Inline Memory Module.

You need SO-DIMM, with 200 pins, and it's Frequency Rate, ('Speed'), is rated at 333Megahertz. (333MHz)
That is PC2700.

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.

Hp nx 5000 - memory problem


The memory modules are located at the bottom of the laptop under one of the panels.
The memory modules may be OK and may only need reseating. Then boot up the laptop to see if it works, if it doesn't work, the memory may be faulty, take it to a computer shop to get it tested.
