Question about Compaq DP 6000 LOGIC BOARD (322735001) Motherboard
Where is the motherboard located, and how do I get to it to add more memory? Is it in the monitor?
No, it is in the actual box which contains the power button. You'll need to open that box and take a peek inside. You will see something similar (not exactly the same) to what is depicted in this picture. Now, in your particular instance one or two of the slots will be occupied by memory-sticks.
That is where your memory will be inserted to add extra RAM. Now we need to find out what type of memory you have right now, because we will need to match it. Download this utility and install it onto your computer. Afterward open up the area for system-memory (Or RAM) and determine what type of memory you have. Is it DDR, DDR2, or some other type? Once again, we will want to try to match the speed, type, and possibly even the brand to ensure the RAM will work with your system.
Once you have that information head online to this website. Once it loads navigate to Computer Hardware>Memory. On the left select, "Desktop Memory." Afterward use the, "Guided Search" to narrow your search to the type that is in your system, that way you're looking at memory types that your system supports aiding you ever so greatly in your choice.
Now just to clarify. This will increase the system-memory not storage-space. With storage-space I mean a hard-drive which contains all your files, personal data, and the Operating System in your computer. If you want more storage-space we will need to buy you a new hard-drive. This won't be as difficult, we just need to know if you have ATA or SATA. Most likely you have ATA since your computer appears to be oldler, so I would recommend a Seagate ATA hard-drive from this website. Once the website loads navigate to Computer Hardware>Hard Drives. Afterward, on the left under, "Hard Drives" select, "Internal Hard Drives." Afterward on the left under, "Guided Search" select the, "Interface" type, "IDE Ultra ATA100." Afterward make a pick on a hard-drive that has the storage space you're after. (The only seagate doesn't have a lot of space, so the ultimate decision is up to you.)
So get back to us with your choice along with the information on your RAM and hard-drive types and we'll let you know if you made a good decision.
