How to add or change DDR2 Memory Compaq Presario SR5110 desktop computer


Just remove the power cord, open the case, turn the computer on it's side and you will see the memory sitting in the slots. Push down on the latches on both ends of the memory slot and then you can pull the memory out.

Be sure to replace it with compatible memory or it will not boot up. Also it you install more than your system will hold, it will not register the excess.

Try 4 All Memory website. It will tell the type, how many slots you have and the maximum amount of memory it can hold.

http://www.4allmemory.com

It looks like your system uses DDR2-PC2-5300 Memory. It has 2 slots and a total capacity of 4GB which means each slot can hold a 2GB chip.

How do you open a compaq presario sr1630nx computer to install memory upgrades


Viewing the back of your computer, you will see a large thumb screw, on the right side of the computer case.

It's to the right of that round ventilation opening. (Round shape with multiple holes in it)
Unscrew the thumb screw to the Left, to loosen it.

The side panel that the thumb screw is in, pulls back towards the rear of the computer.
If you look, there is a place to put your fingers at the end of the side panel.
(Raised 'Hump' in the sheet metal of the panel)

Hold the top of the computer case with one hand, pull the side panel back with the other hand.

NOTE*
The computer MUST be unplugged from power before proceeding!

Not only is there a possible issue for Your safety, but also the computer's!
You will fry out the Ram Memory stick/s if you remove, or install with the computer plugged into power.

Also,......there is an Anti-Static issue that needs to be addressed, BEFORE you reach inside your computer

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out the hardware components inside a computer.
(In a Flash!)

Work on a table. Computer unplugged from power, computer case open. TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case BEFORE you reach inside.

TOUCH the metal frame Before, you take those ram sticks out of their protective antistatic bags.

Should you get up for any reason, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again.

Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram stick.
You can handle the ram stick anywhere, but on those contact pins.
The ram stick is coated with a see-through plastic.
The contact pins are not.

Should you need advice on how to remove, and install ram memory, please state so in a comment. (Top right of page)

Is there any way that i can replace my tower case on my Compaq Presario sr1520nx?


Compaq tends to be rather proprietary in their designs, usually a Compaq motherboard will only fit in a Compaq case, a Compaq power supply will only fit a Compaq case. That said there are exceptions such as hard drives, memory, etc.. If your present case is damaged you would do best to find another of the same model that isn't working and transfer your components.
