    Thanks for trying, the link does not work. I have been on the HP website and cannot find any specific information for that model.

The 3 Compaq Deskpro memory sizes were,
16 MB, 32 MB and 64 MB..

I have compaq presario 2.6ghz with Max Capacity 1gb Ram- is there anyway i can increase capacity to 2gb or even higher?


Unfortunately, if the manufacturer states that the max RAM supported is 1GB, that's going to be all you're going to be able to install - unless you replace the motherboard. This can be a considerable expense.

One last thing you could do is go to Crucial - there, you can run a scan on your computer to find out what memory options you have. I would be very surprised to learn they differ from what Compaq is telling you (unless the motherboard was replaced by someone already).

Please rate this reply - good luck!

Have old compaq Deskpro EN ENS815EC733 M1BU


I would buy a cheap usb card to fit into a pci slot on the old computer.
Otherwise you would need a serial cable (if your laptop has a serial port) if not it would be a serial to usb plus the software to transfer, i would say far too much trouble.
A usb card is a couple £/$

Installed new memory and now wont boot up. Static problem? I remember compaq once told me how to fix it.


A few thing can be wrong.
  • Wrong speed memory - Make sure it is both xxxGHZ, same as your old memory (Take the old memory to the computer store)
  • Memory limit with each slot (Max memory divided by # slots)
  • Overall memory limit (visit the mfg spedific model's page)
  • Incompatable/Bad memory
  • Mix your old and new memory (1 old / 1 new) If the new is incompatable the old (in slot1) should work and an odd amount of ram displays

Before you get to that you may want to see what type of memory and much you can upgrade you shuttle. Go to http://www.crucial.com/ and do a scan to see what memory you have in the system and if it worth upgrading. Then go to hp website and get the manual to find the motherboard.

Please rate, Thanks.

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.

I do not know which model of compaq deskpro I have, But I have used a couple ram cards from another compaq... it increased the ram but the video(from youtube for example) freezes... what can I do to fix it...


If you added more ram to the computer that is a slower speed, the memory will run at a lower speed overall. Even if one stick is faster, they will run at the speed of the slower memory. I would check that. Sometimes it slows your computer down to increase the ram if you decrease the speed.
If its the same speed, you can usually increase your video dedicated memory in the BIOS settings.
Good Luck!

Memory problem


Hi

Compaq Presario 700z notebook PC supports 128MB, 192MB, 256MB, 384MB PC 133 SyncDRAM (SDRAM). The Max Capacity is 384MB.

On this basis, I agree to upgrade the BIOS to support a 133Mhz (PC 133) memory module (DIMM).

At current DIMM capacity and prices, ensure the total memory capacity does no exceed 384MB. On the same note, a 512MB DIMM or two 256MB DIMMs are not supported. The best combination to achieve 384MB will be one 128MB and one 256MB DIMMs.
