Question about Intel S5000XVN Motherboard

How much more memory cah I put in thei computer?

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?

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.

What processor and where can I get one?


This 'notebook' was shipped with an AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-58 CPU, See http://www.cpu-world.com/cgi-bin/IdentifyPart.pl There are three variants. This CPU is "probably upgradeable" according to the FAQ in the pages linked to from my ref.
The HP webpage for this model is Compaq Presario V6642EM Notebook PC Product Information and the specifications (linked to from that page) are here Compaq Presario V6642EM Media Center Notebook PC Product Specifications
The maintenance & service Guide might tell you which, if any, other CPUs can be fitted.
HP say follow the following steps to determine which CPUs are available for your PC HP and Compaq Desktop PCs Upgrading or Replacing the Processor but I don't hold out much hope as to determining the m/b type.
Incidendentally this model can accept up yo 2 x 1GB RAM

I need a how-to on how to install RAM on my Compaq Presario CQ62-228DX. I currently have 3 gb and am hoping to upgrade to 8gb. I have checked, and my x64 bit OS can handle it, and Crucial reccomends it for...


8GB is the maximum supported by this laptop. I'm not certain what you want to know. If its what ram to get, this link may help:

If however, its how to install the ram, then it is just a matter of lifting off the cover on the base to access the ram modules. This may help:

I have a laptop of compaq brand whose modle no is presario C700 in which intel celeron microprocessor is installed. 512 MB ram is installed i want to update it 4 improving its speed. i want to setup a...


I found the manual on the net that gives you instructions on replacing components if you're not sure how, it can be found here.

RAM upgrade
The Compaq Presario C700 uses DDR2 Laptop RAM as shown below.
slasher_x_11.jpg The motherboard of the Presario C700 has two RAM slots, one of them will be occupied by the 512MB RAM (running at 667MHz) module you have at present. This leaves one more that can accomodate a DDR2 667Mhz card of up to 1GB or you could get two 1GB DDR2 800MHz (the faster DDR2) cards and remove the 512 leaving you with a wopping 4GB of memory, that'll definately speed it up. Just remember the Presario C700 can only have up to 2GB of RAM so don't go higher than that or Windows will not boot for some reason.

Processor upgrade
The Presario C700 supports any Socket P, Core 2 Duo or Pentiun Dual Core chips. The fastest processor you can get is the Intel T8300 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo Processor with 3MB L2 cache and an 800MHz FSB

For a full list of compatible processors go to page 9 of the user manual found here.

Memory upgrade


The RAM limit depends on the OS, for example XP and vista 32-bit can only use 4GB max. you must check the current RAM you have to see if its DDR or DDR2, just take that to your local tech and then he/she/they will let you know. Then just buy some more RAM. **WARNING** you cannot use DDR2 in a DDR motherboard and vice versa

Added memory but one memory card (Original) not recognised


OK, according to Crucial.com your RAM does need to be installed in matched pairs.

Here is a link for your computer information:

http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Presario%20SR1460AN


If you get another 512MB module and install both pair, it should work well.

Cpu can not boot


I don't think it is a ram issue.Try this when the computer is booting,hit the F8 key. That boots you into safe mode where only the most necessary drivers and programs load. If it loads in safe mode that is good. A little bit of daignostic work can locate the problem after that.

RAM Capacity of Motherboard MS 6166


unfortunately there are no sites with info on this board, but similair ones can take upto 512MB of ram, but you would be wise trying a matching 128MB stick in the other slot. You will have to visit a computer fair to get hold of sdram or try ebay.
