Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Supposed to have 20 GB of memory, only have 1.99GB

Compaq Presario 5400us. Had Windows Xp, now has Windows 98.
The memory is supposed to be 20 GB. It is only 1.9 GB.I have tried all of the things that windows HELP has suggested. Nothing worked. Nothing has been removed or added to the computer.It works fine except it doesn't have the correct memory. Installing windows took up half of the memory. It has a memory card in it from the factory.When XP was in it it had the correct memory.

    Win98 will not report or use anything over 2 GB.

    You are asking about memory, not hard drive space?

Use windows 98 to make a rescue disk (3 1/2 floppy)
use that emergency disk to repartition and format the hard drive. You can probley use fat16.

Presario R4000 does not detect 2GB of memory


Hi PhotoTom,
I check you laptop specification and it really do support uptp 2 GB. So here I'm not sure your 1GB are both of them DDR 333Mhz ?? .If so what I really want you to test here is
1. 1 GB in one slot and turn it on (as you say you can boot wih it) after that move that 1 GB to the other slot and see.
2. try the same with the other 1GB and see that both work fine on both slot or not.
Incase both work fine on both slot then maybe problem with hardware what I want you to do after that is try to check your BIOS version and check on the website that they do have new BIOS version or not ?? Coz this can help incase problem are from BIOS.

Goodluck,takecare.

RAM


your laptop has:
PCs built for Windows XP normally can handle 1 GB to 2 GB of memory.
PCs built for Windows Vista normally can handle 2 GB to 4 GB of memory.

This is what you need and the pricing is there too.
