Question about HP Compaq Presario M2010US Notebook

Memory upgrade oddity - compaq m2010us laptop

This machine has 2 banks and everyone says the machine will run 1gb.. I install the proper ddr-sodimms 2 x 512 and it won't boot. I remove 1 stick and it boots fine. I look in the bios and it's like a 3 page bios, the only entry concerning ram is on the first page - it's a hard-coded entry stating MEMORY = 480mb - there's no way to adjust the amount of installed ram in the bios.. I flashed the bios to the latest ver and the song remains the same. Initially the machine had 2 x 256. I retried this combination and it works fine. I tried 1 x 512 plus 1 x 256 and no boot. So I believe I've tried all combinations and ruled out a faulty slot.. Prior to ordering the memory I ran the crucial scanner .exe on it and crucial said go for 2 x 512.. Is there something I'm overlooking here?

Compaq laptop have been known to be fussy with RAM, especially if you are mixing different brands/makes of RAM modules.
Try each RAM module one at a time to see if they work. Put these aside and when you have tested them all, then pair them up to see if they will work together. Try and use the same speed, brand and RAM size.

How much RAM does a Compaq Presario v2000 would allow?


The Compaq Presario v2000 has a max ram capacity of 2.0gb.

You would need to purchase 2x 1gb ram modules are there are only two bays for these to go into. You would need to purcahse PC2700 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs.

RAM upgrade is not working


A 200-pin PC-3200 SODIMM should work in your machine but it will clock down to 333MHz. Your computer has 2 slots with a max of 512MB per slot (1GB total system memory). For maximum compatibility you should stick with a low density (16-chip - double-sided) PC2700 DDR-333 SODIMM with a CL of 2.5. Link below to see an example:
