No proberly not,you should never do so.
i understand you wan't to add moore memory (RAM)
windows 32x can only handle max 4 GB.windows 64x 8-12 GB.
invest in some new memory (RAM) that's best.

SOURCE: Add more memory to my computer

Not able to access it in what way? Is there a password for the BIOS or something? Normally on most (all?) Compaq models, F10 is the key to use to access the BIOS.

SOURCE: very slow, old, compaq presario 5000

Beyond adding memory, there really isn't anything you can add or change in the hardware to gain any real speed. Older computers don't support the technology to go as fast as the newer ones.

Other than being slow to start up and load programs, these older machines are still useful. For Internet access, email, word processing and other applications like that, computer speed isn't much of an issue anyway. The people who really need processor speed are gamers or users of power applications like animation or music or big number-crunching financial packages. I've fixed up systems like yours for parents who love the fact that about all their kids can do with them is schoolwork.

Bottom line, though, is that it would be better to put money into a new computer instead of trying to upgrade this one if you truly need more speed.

SOURCE: what kind of memory module can i add to increase

Virtual Memory (or Paging File) is controlled on your computer and is actually space on your hard drive. In windows XP, go to START, right click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware Tab, select Settings under Performance. In the Advanced Tab, under Virtual Memory, select Change. Set the Paging File Size to "System Managed". Click Set>OK>OK>OK.

This error should go away now, unless your hard drive is getting full. Check to make sure that you have at least 25% free space on the hard drive where the Paging File is set up.

Did this solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.

My computer displays an insufficient virtual memory notice, even if i am only running internet explorer


You just try increasing your virtual memory in your system. Right click on My Computer, click the advanced tab. Under Performance click on the button called settings. In that popup, you will have an option to edit your virtual memory. Try increasing it and then see whether the problem persists or not...

Opening programs is so slow virtual memory running low


which operating system you are using and what is the ram capacity? and onemore thing to check what is your virtual memory capacity. for that

Right click "mycomputer" > properties > advanced >click settings on performance > in advanced tab > increase virtual memory file size.
generally its size is ram capacity * 2 (ex: for 512mb its virtual memory size is 1GB) check that and we can increase the file size also.

Remember to choose the drive you would like to use to increase the virtual memory. In most cases it usually your C: Drive. You can set the initial size and maximum size after clicking the Custom size check box.Remember its better to keep the Virtual memory values the same.

Also having enough available space is absolutely necessary for your virtual memory and RAM to function properly.

I need to add space to my compaq presario desk top. i don't know how to on this computer. the model# SR5034X


If you want to increase cpu speed so you need to increase RAM memory.
You can fix it on motherbord of desktop cpu.
But if you have low space on disk storage partition so you can add space to desktop with 2 method.
(1) you can add harddisk to desktop cpu with sata or IDE .SATA harddisk is best if your motherbord support SATA.
You can add harddisk as you like for example 80 GB or 160 Gb.
(2) If you want to add RAM memory for speed reson you can purchase new RAm and fix it in memory module slot on motherbord.
There is 2 type on
RAM in currently.
DDR1 and DDR2

you can add RAM memory like 512 MB or 1GB or more.

Upgrade memory for Compaq Presario R3000 PC Notebook


What OS are you running? 768 should be enough to run XP and keep you from getting that error message. On laptops their are normally just 2 slots for ram, so you would need to replace the 256 with the 512, which would bring you up to a gig of ram. Do you know if your computer has any spyware/adware on it? Sometimes malware can take up all your memory and generate just such an error. Do you know how many processes are running when you first login? Thank you.
