Question about Compaq Presario 1800T Notebook

1 Answer

Can I increase Maximum Memory for 1800T?

I have read that the 1800T presario laptop has a maximum memory of 320 MB.

I bought a 512 low-density memory, and I placed it in my 1800T.

The computer is showing that it has 320 MB.

Is there anyway to change the BIOS, etc. to allow for a larger maximum memory? 512MB ? 1GB?

    I've been told by an electrical engineer that the memory capability is dependent ONLY upon the 'chipset'. I have a Pentium 3, which only allows for a maximum 256 MB per slot. Is this the correct interpretation?

No, The reason why your computer says it has lower memory is because either

A- your bios can only recognize up to 320mb. --possible fix via upgrading/flashing your bios --check manufacturer's website.
B- your on board video card shares memory with the system.

    Sounds correct. The motherboard model number & google make great results on finding all spec's on the board.

Video card....


Most cheaper laptops do not include a full-blown graphics board with expensive dedicated graphics memory. Instead, system memory is shared between the CPU and the graphics subsystem.
How much memory actually is reserved for graphics purposes depends on the software you are running. The frame buffer (the memory used to store the pixels on your desktop) is only part of it - games, for example use a lot of memory to store textures and geometry data.
  • Minimum Graphics Memory: 128 MB
    The smallest memory size your system must reserve for CPU/Graphics sharing.
  • Maximum Graphics Memory: 1341 MB
    The largest chunk your system can configure for sharing.
From the DirectX report you can see, it currently uses 27 MB only.
Your laptop lacks the CPU and graphics power to run high demand games anyway, so 128 MB of shared memory should be sufficient. You can configure this to 256 or 512 MB in the BIOS configuration menu, but I doubt it will make any noticeable difference for you.

What is the maximum memory capacity of acer aspire 5600 model


According to the specs of this laptop model, it supports up to 4 GB of DDR2 533/667 MHz memory using two soDIMM modules. This means that you will have to replace the 512 MB memory module already installed in your laptop, & replace it with 2 soDIMM DDR2 533/667 MHz memory modules, each of 2 GB capacity.

Now you will some thing like this
Initial size(MB) = 768
Maximum size -1024

Now here comes the main point and to enter proper values under Initial size (MB) =
and Maximum size =

suppose your ram is of 512 mb than initial size will be
Initial size = 768 ( 512 * 1.5 = 768)
Maximum size = 2304 ( 512 * 1.5 * 3 = 2304)
just enter the values according to calculation and your problem is solved ..if you want you can increase more 'Maximum size' value for faster system optimization .
