Depending on your version of Windows 32 or 64. 32 bit software can only use around 3.8GB's of memory no matter how much you install. So say you install 2x2GBs of memory you only use 3.8GBs. 64 bit will utilize more. There are many variations of your laptop CQ60. A free program you can use to show hardware/software specs is SPECCY found here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_speccy/. I find it quite useful.

I have a compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc, was wondering how do i go about upgrading the RAM?


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!

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60-212US PC Notebook and i was wondering is there any way i could add more memory to my graphic card. example share memory with my ram?

This will depend on what options you have in the Bios. Some systems will give you a fixed option and some base it off how much memory you have in the system. You Notebook will support 4GB of ram in two 2GG sticks. The link below will show you how to install them.

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01486508.pdf

Also to be able to check the setting you may need to install a Bios update. The link below will take you to the download pages where you can download the Bios update from. Note if you have not ever done a Bios update before you might want to ask a friend to help you that has down one before because if you mess up the Bios update you can brick the computer.

I need to add space to my compaq presario desk top. i don't know how to on this computer. the model# SR5034X


If you want to increase cpu speed so you need to increase RAM memory.
You can fix it on motherbord of desktop cpu.
But if you have low space on disk storage partition so you can add space to desktop with 2 method.
(1) you can add harddisk to desktop cpu with sata or IDE .SATA harddisk is best if your motherbord support SATA.
You can add harddisk as you like for example 80 GB or 160 Gb.
(2) If you want to add RAM memory for speed reson you can purchase new RAm and fix it in memory module slot on motherbord.
There is 2 type on
RAM in currently.
DDR1 and DDR2

you can add RAM memory like 512 MB or 1GB or more.
