I have a compaq pasario 5716 with pentium III Desktop computer. Has only 384.0MB RAM. HD space is11GB. The OS is W98. with Internet Exployer version 6. To update this computer I think I need to replace...


Don't bother upgrading that old thing.

You can pick up a much better second hand Pentium 4 for $60 or so, and even Windows XP can only handle about 4 Gigs of RAM.

Very few Pentium 3s will support a 2Gig module in each slot. Just because they sell 2 Gig sticks does not mean they will work in your computer.

If you want to know how much memory your old machine will hold and support, just go to:

WWW.CRUCIAL.COM

When you get there, run their SCAN MY COMPUTER utility.

This will tell you exactly how much memory and what type you currently have installed, how many memory slots are available on the motherboard, how much each slot will support individually, as well as the maximum total amount of RAM that the motherboard will support.

Good luck.

I need to know if the CPU speed can be increased to 1GHz or over and that I have put in 2 memory modules of 128MB onto it but only 128MB appears on the System Properties. Irvin.


You are confusing 2 things, CPU speed and Memory or Ram speed.

To keep things straight forward, cpu speed can only be increased by replacing it with a faster cpu.

Ram, as you can see, can be increased by adding faster ram modules.


Go to either of these websites:-

http://www.orcalogic.co.uk/asp/default.asp

http://www.crucial.com/uk/

Enter *********** board details or request they scan your computer. Check all the information offered, they will tell you what type and how much ram your motherboard can use.

If you can't increase your ram speed to more that 1Gb, I would suggest it time to invest in a new motherboard/PC rather than spending more on RAM.

There can be a whole load of reason why your second stick of ram doesn't work.

1) it could be broken.
2) It could be the wrong type.
3) You may need to update your Bios to accommodate it. Though this is very unusual.

HOW TO UPDATE VIDEO MEMORY FROM 64 TO 128MB AT BIOS


the motherboard bios should automatically update the amount of ram installed if it does not then more than likely the ram is not compatible with the motherboard.

Update of laptop


Windows Millenium Is not recommeded as it was never very stable and has no support anymore

Although it also has no more support , Windows 2000 Pro is far more stable and requires the following minimum system specs

Minimum Requirements Computer/Processor 133 MHz or higher Pentium-compatible CPU Memory 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM recommended minimum; more memory generally improves responsiveness Hard Disk 2GB hard disk with a minimum of 650MB of free space

Look Here and you will see that you laptop can have up to 144MB memory. 16mb is non removable and the rest is by replaceing the current 64mb stick with a 128mb stick instead.

This caught my attention

" picked up a 30GB Toshiba disk today, but wasn't sure it would fit. some old BIOSes won't recognise large disks. I was worried that my Tosh would only recognise up to about 8GB, which is apparently the largest disk size you can fit in the model below mine.
It was, however, just plug and play. I swapped out the disks, noting that the new disk is half the thickness of the old one, despite having 15 times as much storage, and powered up. Starting up the RedHat install showed that my Tosh was now equipped with a 30GB hard drive. Pretty cool really, for a Pentium 133."

Yes hes running linux , not windows but it looks like you can have a 30gb drive in the laptop intead of the 2gb.

Changing motherboard language


You can go to the manufacturers website and look for a BIOS update flash .. but unfortunately since you nor I know Japanese we cannot get into the BIOS to see if it can just be changed there. Most BIOS have language settings but you gotta know the current one in order to switch to another.

Memory Up-Grade


hi there, the memory slot is under the main case. lift the computer up from the front and you will see a panel on the left with two small screws. undo these two screws and you will see the memory card. they have also two small screws that must be removed to be able too remove the card.

GeForce6100SM-M Intermitently Shutsdown


if there is a problem with one of the devices connections , or one of the devices chips are failing it will cause a shut down to protect the rest of the circutry.
try disconnecting all but cd/dvd drive to see if this happens , then only plug the sata or other ide including the power.
if a virus is in bios , resetting the clr bios and removing the battery on the motherboard can remove it
if the local area network is causing the shut down you would have data transfer problems or slow communications,
and there could also be a problem on the board

Asus P4T-M version 1.05 Not Posting?


Hi ed, that 4-Pin ATX_12 connector near the CPU is for powering the CPU. Suggest you change PSU's. Though I'd agree there are some boards that have the 4-Pin connector & it's not used. Those boards usually have a 24 pin main connector & lower voltage CPU's Please check here at Asus web site for P4T-M.

I'm sure your P4T-M will boot after connecting the ATXPWR, ATX12V. As you noted, it would be nice if you could test the memory. When you get display you can test your memory for free by downloading a mem test program at. http://www.memtest.org/

Enjoy the weekend Ed.
