You can always power off the computer and remove one of the memroy sticks and it should be labeled I.E. DDR,DDR2 followed by the speed, I.E. 333 or 400 or 800.

Sometimes the manufacturer puts the mother board model number printed on the circuit board in big letters. regular DDR cost more than DDR2 and you cant fit DDR2 in regular DDR memory slots.

You can pull out one of the memroy sticks and take it with you to a store and tell them you want that kind but a bigger stick, like a Gig stick and the fastest you can get.

The processor will have its model number printed on it, the socket the CPU goes into will have a number like 756 ot A2 or similar, that will tell you what type of chips it supports.

If you can get the model number of the mother board you can go online to the manufacturers web site and try downloading the specs/manual.

Good luck

Genuine Intel (r), means it's an Intel processor, and the r stands for Registered.
The name is a registered trademark.

T2080 is an eMachines desktop computer.
Uses an ECS L7VMM motherboard.

Ram Memory:
TOTAL maximum amount for motherboard is 4GB.
Maximum amount for EACH ram memory slot is 2GB.
There are two Ram Memory slots.

Uses either DDR Sdram that is 200MegaHertz, or 266MHz.
That is PC1600, and PC2100; respectively.

Do you have the power seated properly on the motherboard and the video card?

Do you have the video card seated properly?
-Do you have the video card in the first slot? (PCIE2 / First blue slot from the CPU)
-If running SLI suggest to use only one video card for the time being.

Is the ram seated properly?
-If using all four slots for ram suggest to only use two sticks of ram on slot A1 and B1.

Is the CPU seated properly using the CPU golden triangle to the socket corner small triangle?

If you have confirmed that everything is seated properly and the computer will still not post then you may have to call the manufacturer for a replacement or RMA.

6) CPU Utilization TDP: 90% TDP (recommended)
(In otherwords leave alone)

7) Overclock my CPU!: Leave alone
8) RAM: 2 sticks of DDR SDRAM

9) Video Cards;
A) Video Brand: AMD (AMD owns ATI now)
B) Video Card 1: AMD Radeon HD5450
C) Video Card 2, 3, and 4: Leave alone

Need to upgrade cpu for using multiple progams at on time, can cpu be upgraded on this older model compaq presario S0000 / 8000 series computer


As you have stated it's a Compaq Presario S0000/S8000 SERIES desktop computer.

One of the S0000/S8000 series.
Without knowing the exact model number I have no idea of what hardware is installed on the motherboard.

On the back of the computer tower, or up on the side, is a white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number. This is the exact model number I need.

Also; Going to HP Support with the exact model number may not reveal the info I need, either.
They may not list the specifications, and therefore the installed hardware, for your computer.
There is an easy way around this, however.
Use CPU-Z from CPUID.com

What info is needed in order to know if the Processor can be upgraded:

A) Processor Socket: What processor socket is installed on the motherboard. This is what the Processor sits in.

Just two examples for Intel processors; Socket 478, and LGA 775 processor socket.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

With this style of processor socket, the processor socket has the socket holes, and the processor has the contact pins. (478 holes/478 pins)

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

With this style of processor socket, the socket has the pins, while the processor has contact pads.

There are other styles of Intel processor sockets. There are also AMD processors which can be used, and have many different processor sockets also.


B) What motherboard chipset is used.
Specifically, what Northbridge chip is used.

3) Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

For your motherboard the motherboard chipset is a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

{So aptly named Northbridge, and Southbridge, for the relation of how they sit on the motherboard.
Looking at a motherboard as if it were a map, the Processor sits to the North.

The Northbridge chip sits close to the Processor.
The Southbridge chip sits to the 'South' on the motherboard }

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
It handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.

4) Motherboard Diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

Knowing what processor socket is used, and what Northbridge chip, we can accurately determine what processors are supported.

CPU-Z is a tiny, free program that without opening your computer, tells you what hardware is installed on your motherboard.
Tells you what processor socket, and Northbridge chip are used, for one.

5) This is information on CPU-Z. Shows you a screenshot of the user interface of CPU-Z,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z

Left-click on the CPU-Z user interface to the upper right of the page, to enlarge it.
(Under the bold CPU-Z heading)

When CPU-Z opens it automatically opens to the CPU tab.
(Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short)

To the right of - Package - tells you what processor socket is used.
Clicking on the Mainboard tab tells you what motherboard chipset is used.

6) CPU-Z download page,

http://www.cpuid.com/downloads/cpu-z/1.56-setup-en.exe

Left-click on Download now! in the purple rectangular box.
A small window will come up on the right side -
Opening cpu-z_1.56-setup-en.exe

Left-click right on Save File
Another small window will come up on the left.
In the header at the top of this small window, tells you where the file will download to.

In the wording may be Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads.

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents

Downloads: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click right on it.
Follow the easy installation instructions.

Go back to your desktop screen. Double-click on the CPU-Z icon.
When CPU-Z has loaded, come back here in a Comment, and tell me;

1) In the CPU tab, what is stated to the right of - Package

2) Left-click on the Mainboard tab.

What is stated to right of;
A) Manufacturer
B) Model
C) Chipset
D) Southbridge

Cant open the tower. i want to add ram. what is the max i can add?


One way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.

This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM you currently have installed and what type it is.

It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity is for that motherboard.

If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to get to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.

Intel DG31PR motherboard starts and cpu heated but on the post card it is showing not initialized please solve the problem


Check the RAM modules, reseat to make sure it makes proper electrical contact.
Check the RAM specification and motherboard specification. Is the RAM module the correct type for the motherboard
If it still does not boot up, check the RAM module - take it to your friendly computer shop to test.
Check the CPU, make sure it is seated correctly and locked into position. If possible test the CPU in another motherboard to see if it is faulty.

Do I need to buy 2 DDR2 Ram for my ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboard?


with rams, if the memory it has is higher than that of your cpu, the pc will not boot up or if it is too low compared to your cpu again.

thus, you say it has got two slots right, remove both of the 512's and insert the 1gig only, run your computer, i am sure it will boot up nicely. switch it off. put one 512, if it does not boot then you should know that your ram has an excess of memory that your cpu could not apprehend to.

post a coment if this does not work.

thanks,

Computer won't load past Boot and now doesn't display anything!


the memory stick going in one way into the module. If you can't close the clips try to rotate it 180 degrees.

when windows starts hit F8 key and select disable automatic start on system failure.
This will bring you a blue screen with the specified error

also you can boot from windows xp cd and at first screen select repair, this will put you in recovery console
in recovery console you can scan your hardrive for errors like this:
chkdsk c: /p /r
