I have a Compaq presario pc model 5405 I upgraded the 128mb of ram that was originally in the pc to 256 Mb. Can I add more ram and if so how much?
In the instuction section of upgrading the components hand book it stated "that there are several different types of memory modules and that one should install the same type of memory currently in the computer.' I was instucted to go to this web site compaq.com/athome/memory, But I was not able to view that page
I get often a message that the memory is low and that some application will not be able to access. I don't understand the concept of the memory. My daughter wanted to speed up my pc, so she bought 1000mb ram just to find out that it didnot work. The satement that I mention about the ram previously dose it mean that 128 mb more was the limit of the memory upgrade?

Re: How much more memory cah I put in thei computer?
If you have that INTEL S5000XVN Motherboard in your pc. You need to buy PC2-4300 or PC2-5300ram. Intel say it can handle up to 32gb of ram. As it has 8 slots for ram i would say that could be possible but very very expensive. 1gb a slot would more than enough.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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! CreativeTECH

Not knowing what model of computer you are talking about, I'd suggest you try various combination's with your memory modules as some computers are picky and accept certain size memory chips in certain slots only. Furthermore, it could be there is a bad connection on the sockets or if you have not been ESD safe, you could have zapped the memory chips and or the main board.
There are 2 possibilities here - either the slot is not working or the RAM itself.
First install the working 128MB RAM in both memory slots one after the other and ensure that both the slots are in good shape.
Next, install the other 128MB RAM in one slot and check if this is working good.
Your laptop can support a maximum memory of 512MB. If you looking for an upgrade, please call Dell Support. Even though it's little expensive and shipping takes a week, you can get a free after sales service and peace of mind. Moreover you get proper guidance from the experts.
You problem is the motherboard.On your PCs mother board the 128MB that
came with the motherboard might be the highest memory the chipset
on your motherboard can accommodate. The chipset is built in and you
cannot change or upgrade it. You can speed up the PC with how
many memo sticks you added, if the chipset can handle. So it look like
if you want a fast PC you need to get a new motherboard chipset
with higher memory clock frequency. Here's the pic of the chipset on the motherboard(square type)
