Compaq are a bit fussy with RAM and usually don't like mixed RAM - brand, speed, & sometimes size.
You model may not support more than 2GB, check the specs..
Try inserting a single 2Gb RAM to see if it works.
If it dosen't work and the laptop won't support more than 2Gb, you may need to install two 1Gb RAM modules.

Can we ad a ram of 2gb


Yes you can. But you will have to leave the other ram slot open.
your total ram has to add up to 2gb.

so if you put 3gb of ram your computer will not start.

I recommend selling that 2gb and get two 1gb instead or buying a motherboard that supports 4gb max.

What is the max ram speed my pc can take


According to some research, your desktop has 4 RAM slots available. The total maximum RAM your desktop can hold is 2GB (2048MB). Furthermore, each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB (1024) but cannot exceed the 2GB total.
This means you can theoretically install 2 x 1GB RAM DIMMS in 2 RAM slots or 4 x 512MB RAM DIMMS. Both will meet the desktops 2GB limitation.
The RAM specifications for your desktop are as follows:
RAM Limit: 2GB (2048MB) RAM Slot Type: SO-DIMM RAM Type: DDR1 (not DDR2 or DDR3) RAM Speed: PC3200/DDR400 ECC Type: Non-ECC
TIP: The RAM is DDR which means that while you can install them as singles (single-channel mode), the system will see a speed benefit from installing them as matched pairs (dual-channel mode).

I have problem about ram


If the manual says this motherboard support up to 1 GB RAM, you cannot put 2 GB. You can put 2x 512 GB RAM or 1GB RAM
Also try to upgrade your bios, maybe a better bios version supports more than 1 GB RAM.

Adding an additional memory module to laptop...wont start!!!


The problem is that your laptop only supports 2 GB of RAM. If there is not a newer bios allowing more then 2 GB is the max you can go. Since you put the 2 GB in one slot then the other slot will be useless. It wouldn't matter how much you put in the 2nd slot because the bios already says you have 2 GB on board and will not accept anymore. Sorry.

Hi I got some new SDRAM cards and put all of them


Each pair of ram stick go in the same color slot (2 x 1 GB in green for example) then the 2 x 512MB go in the other slots (may be pink)
you also need to make sure that your motherboard supports more than 2GB

Ddr ram sdr ram i am same time input that tw0 thats not show two ram capacities just show one ram'' asus p4s533 model please help me


Hi safran0785,
The Asus motherboard, P4S533-MX can run two different types of memory.
(Just not at the same time & in different slots).
You can use 2, 184-pin memory, PC2700/PC2100 MHz or PC1600 up to 2GB. (1GB DIMMs) inserted in the two memory slots closest to the CPU.
Or you can run SDR memory, 168-pin PC133 or PC100MHz DIMMs up to 1GB of memory in the last two slots farthest from the CPU.
You can not run both types of memory at the same time.

The 184-pin DDR PC2700MHz memory is much faster then SDR memory.
The maximum amount of system memory supported is 2GB.

Need more information/questions, just post here.
Good luck safran0785!
Mike

Faulty Ram Controller?


This does sound to be video problems. This could be caused by one of two things. 1) Faulty Video card 2) Faulty Memory/controller. I would sugest running a program to test the video card if it passes, try removing the top stick of memory (the one being falsely read) and try running it for some time under its normal use to test this.

System & Screen Freeze when I use external usb drive!


The Evo N610c is upgradable to only 1GB of memory. You're overloading the motherboard, it can't handle 2GB. If you really need 2GB, get a new laptop (or a PC, for that matter). Otherwise, I'd run (2) 512MB sticks of RAM to even out the workload.

Getting a blue screen


first off, try just one mem stick in slot 1, if the m/c comes up with bad bios checksum then you have a faulty bios, updating this to v0403 should sort out your problems. oh but make sure when you update you dont have any mem in slot 1 because it wont work. if you still having problems then take it back to where you bought it from and get a different board.
