Turn the computer around so you are looking at the back. There is a white plastic latch on the right side near the top. Press the latch down and slide the right side (actually the machine's left, but you're looking at it from behind, remember?) panel back toward you. Then you can lift it off the machine. There may be a screw in the top of the panel above the latch, so check for that if the panel won't slide. Compaq doesn't put that screw in at the factory, but someone else may have. Once the side cover is off you will have clear access to the system board.

Compaq Presario CQ50-215NR The computer has a beeping sound like a car alarm. while to Operrating system is running. It wont stop beeping


Hello.

The most common reason for this problem is memory. They could be slightly loose or faulty.

Disconnect all cables. Flip over the laptop and unlock and remove the battery.

Remove the memory cover. Remove and reinsert (on a slant) the memory module(s). Replace cover and battery.

Power on again.

If the problem persists, a memory module could be faulty. Follow the above instructions but test one module at a time.

Hope this helps.

I want to upgrade Compaq Presario SR5410F with Video card GE FORCE 8600GT, 512 mb. What are the requirements of DDR Memory (Presently 1GIG AND Power Supply 200Watts). Please explain what to add and take...


To install the 8600GT, turn off your computer, unplug the power cable going to your power supply, remove the side panel of your case, remove the current video card and firmly push the 8600GT into your PCI-Express x16 slot. Now plug in your monitor to the video card’s ports, close up your case, plug in your power cable, and turn on your machine. In BIOS turn off the built-in video and enable the PCIe slot for use. Restart. Insert the included installation CD and follow the onscreen instructions. The power supply is small but should work as long as you have not added other items. The memory is adequate and does not matter as far as adding a video card is concerned. Some games may require more memory, however.

Install memory


Use the following steps to remove a memory or continuity module:

Turn off the computer.

Windows 98 or 2000: Click Start , Shut Down , and then Shut Down

Windows XP: Start and then Turn Off .

Unplug the AC adapter, if present, and remove the battery.

From the bottom of the computer, remove the screw holding the RAM cover, and remove the cover.

Remove the board by pulling it away from the connector at a
45-degree angle.

Align the keyed (notched) edge of the board with the keyed area in the expansion slot. Insert the board into the slot at a 45-degree angle until it is seated.

Push the front edge of the board down until the retention clips snap into place. Then replace the cover

Compaq Presario 1000


I have a Presario X1050, not sure if they are similar. Remove the screws from the bottom, carefully remove the keyboard with a small flat head screwdriver. You'll find many screws hidden by small plastic covers and rubber feet that will all need to be removed with the screwdriver. You may have to remove the display to get inside the laptop. Ultimately though, the power supply is actually external included on the power cable.

Memory card


They don't sell "memory cards" for computers. However they do sell RAM(aka:memory) chips. The type of RAM you are looking for is DDR-333. It's up to you on how much you want to add.
