1GB of RAM is not enough to run Windows XP and the programs you installed efficiently. Removing unnecessary programs should make more memory available for necessary programs but it will never be fast. Crucial.com is a great resource for memory upgrades but I don't think you should invest in a computer that old with a completely unsecure and unsupported operating system (XP).

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: xp drivers for compaq presario desktop MODEL SG3510IL

This model is only sold in India which Microsoft no longer supports XP in. If you look up your motherboard manufacturer/chipset, google to see what generic drivers or what hp/compaq model it is used in that supports XP then download those drivers as "download only" and you will be able to use XP. You may also have to disable AHCI in the BIOS if that is an option. Let me know if you need further assistance. Steve Medley

It appears that the hard disk drive is not being seen in the Bios. Ensure that both the power and data cables are connected to the drive and the controller. try booting again.

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!

Hi i have compaq presario c700 its too slow discr


If you have changed OS, your problem probably is not due to malware or bloat.
Upgraded to 2gb ram, new hard drive. And still you think it is too slow.
I think either you are too fussy, and expect too much OR your laptop has major problems at a chipset level.
Have you tried running some benchmark software to check if it really is running slow???

I would Do a fresh install of windows, SELL it and change to a different model.
Try checking a couple of reviews on sites like Custom PC, for a good fast laptop.

My Compaq Presario 5000 series (year 2001) is running extremely slow. I was told to use the original disc and start it over again. I do not have one. Where can I get one?


what operating system have you got? You can load Windows XP clean on it and download drivers from hp.com . How much Ram have you got in the PC , maybe upgrade RAM?

I upgraded to xp but now its running really slow


You may not have enough RAM. I think Windows XP runs like a champ on about 1gb of memory. But in your case 512mgs should be ok.

Will Windows XP work on a Compaq 5020?


Yes, but it will be somewhat slow on such a old computer. I would recommend getting a new computer or buying a newer used computer, for example from ebay.

Compaq Presario S4300CL PC Desktop is SLOW.


You said you have 512K of RAM; I assume you mean 512MB. Either way, you are in dire need of a RAM upgrade. The sweet spot for XP memory-wise was 2gigs. The working minimum is 512MB, but the recommended spec is at least 1. If you upgraded to at least 2 gigs of ram, you'll see a speed improvement.
If you need help finding out what type of memory to get, let me know.

Upgrading from 2gb to 4gb on a HP Compaq Presario SR2150NX


Only with a new MoBo. There are two RAM slots that each support up to 1GB. I was in your situation recently. I upgraded from Vista to XP and it works fine.

you may have other bottleneck... maybe the XP you're using doesn't utilizes the multi core in your computer or maybe office 2007 is not enjoying your ram size? these are just few factors that can affect your system performance.
