I have checked the Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Specification It Originally has 2GB Memory and supports upto 4GB RAM max. If you intend to upgrade the RAM, you can buy additional RAM and put them in you system. Here is the HP Guide to Replace RAM and How to Upgrade RAM Guide Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX has two RAM slots for DDR-2 (533 or 667) Memory Modules. First you have to check that the RAM slot is available for additional RAM. I believe that it has two modules of 1GB each in both slots. So, you have to get two modules of RAM 2GB each to upgrade to 4GB (or one 2GB RAM module to upgrade to 3GB). Hence, it is recommended that you get 2GB replacement module for each 1GB module you have on you system from local laptop repair/ service center, which would be cost effective as existing 1GB RAM Modules would be useless for you upon upgrade.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Good Luck! Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help! CreativeTECH
Thanks to Microsoft Knowledge Base for help with my answer:
First, find out what the maximum amount of memory is. This is generally listed by most of the manufacturers. This will let you know what upgrade potential the system has. Next, determine how the memory configuration is when you buy the system. For example, a laptop that has 2GB of memory can be configured as either a single 2GB module or two 1GB modules. The single memory module allows for better upgrade potential because by adding another module you are gaining more memory without sacrificing any current memory. Upgrading the two module situation with a 2GB upgrade would result in the loss of one 1GB module and a memory total of 3GB.
Hi.There are a set of instructions that we need to follow for the upgrade process.You can increase the amount of RAM (random access memory)
in the notebook with an optional memory module approved by Compaq.The notebook contains 2 memory slots, one of which is accessible for an optional memory module upgrade.Please refer to think link and select the Hardware Upgrade option in the list in the file which will guide you thru picturised views for helping in the memory upgrade.Link is : http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00090108.pdf.

Well...digging through HP's web page is always fun...;-)
but it looks like you've got the wrong memory. You should only use PC2100 DDR-266 MHz or higher RAM, according to HP. (You can find the manual here.) Sometimes the so-called "Memory Finder" on vendor's pages give you the wrong information. If that is the case (and it's their fault), talk to them and try to exchange it to the correct modules.
Compaq Presario 700z notebook PC supports 128MB, 192MB, 256MB, 384MB PC 133 SyncDRAM (SDRAM). The Max Capacity is 384MB.
On this basis, I agree to upgrade the BIOS to support a 133Mhz (PC 133) memory module (DIMM).
At current DIMM capacity and prices, ensure the total memory capacity does no exceed 384MB. On the same note, a 512MB DIMM or two 256MB DIMMs are not supported. The best combination to achieve 384MB will be one 128MB and one 256MB DIMMs.
Well,you already have a DVD burner in your machine, and A DVD ROM refers to memory.. you just need to download the upgrades available at Compaq's website. find out which Cd/DVD burner you have by downloading a marvelous freeware program called Belafrc Advisor, which will list all hardware and sofware on your computer, compete with versions and access codes. then go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=320163&lang=en which lists all upgrades available for your model. DVD burners stopworking correctly when your non-microsoft burner program becomes corrupt, so be sure to upgrade that. If you have any problems, ask support.
