    I want to upgrade my Laptop NX 5000 RAM which is currently 256 mb. Please suggest in details what type of ram is reqd i.e. DDR, DDR1/2 and what about 180/200 pins

    You can upgrade to 2GB.
    512 MegaByte + 512MB = 1024MegaByte
    1024MB = 1GigaByte )

    It is DDR Sdram.
    (Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory)

    It is also SO-DIMM, as used for laptops.
    (Single Outline Dual Inline Memory Module)

    There are 200 gold plated contact pins. 100 on each side,

    Note the Locating Notch on the bottom, and how it is off to one side.
    Note the Side Notch on each side.

    There is a Locating Lug in the bottom of the ram memory slot, for the laptop.
    The ram memory module must be turned to the Locating Notch lines up with the Locating Lug.

    There are spring clips on each side of a ram memory module.
    The tops of the spring clips are eased to the outside.

    This allows a bump, or protrusion on the spring clip, to come out of the Side Notch.
    When the ram memory module is ensured to be seated correctly, in the ram memory slot, the spring clip 'bump' will be in the Side Notch.

    A laptop ram memory module is removed AT AN ANGLE!
    NOT too much more than the angle it is in, when installed in the ram memory slot.

    After the two spring clips are eased out, the ram memory module will pop up a little bit.
    Slide it out AT THAT ANGLE.

    If you it up to a straight up position, you will damage the gold plated contact pins of the ram memory module, and the contact pins in the ram memory slot.

    Damage the contact pins in the ram memory slot, and you are looking at motherboard replacement.

    Everywhere on the ram memory module is the BODY, except for the gold plated contact pins.
    Handle the ram memory module by the Body.
    The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

    Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.

    [ DDR Sdram IS DDR1. Double Data Rate Sdram.
    DDR2 Sdram is Double Data Rate 2 Sdram.
    DDR3 Sdram is Double Data Rate 3 Sdram,




    It is the Technology used, not referring to the size ]

    DIMM for desktops, Dual Inline Memory Module
    SO-DIMM for laptops.
    Single Outline Dual Inline Memory Module.

    You need SO-DIMM, with 200 pins, and it's Frequency Rate, ('Speed'), is rated at 333Megahertz. (333MHz)
    That is PC2700.

    I have a compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc, was wondering how do i go about upgrading the RAM?

    I have checked the Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Specification It Originally has 2GB Memory and supports upto 4GB RAM max. If you intend to upgrade the RAM, you can buy additional RAM and put them in you system. Here is the HP Guide to Replace RAM and How to Upgrade RAM Guide
    Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX has two RAM slots for DDR-2 (533 or 667) Memory Modules. First you have to check that the RAM slot is available for additional RAM. I believe that it has two modules of 1GB each in both slots. So, you have to get two modules of RAM 2GB each to upgrade to 4GB (or one 2GB RAM module to upgrade to 3GB). Hence, it is recommended that you get 2GB replacement module for each 1GB module you have on you system from local laptop repair/ service center, which would be cost effective as existing 1GB RAM Modules would be useless for you upon upgrade.

    Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

    Good Luck!
    Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

    My laptop HP Compaq 6510b Notebook PC . Can I upgrade the momary from 2G Ram To 4G of Ram ? . And the prosser Cor2Deu 2Gspeed Can I upgrade it to Cor I5 . Thank You

    CPU upgrade is a big NO.
    The core I5 is a different socket, and modern laptops use mobile CPU's.
    Memory upgrade is ok, you can fit 4GB "Up to 4GB of 667-MHz DDR2 SDRAM, dual channel memory support "

    Upgrade ram on HP LAPTOP COMPAQ NX9010

    Ok, so you just got more Hard disk space, or a new bigger Hard disk. Of course you need t upgrade the Ram memory. This computer supports Ram memory up to 1 Gb with a max frequency of 266Mhz. You probably have 256Mb or 512Mb of Ram Memory. You can go to any computer store and get it upgraded. It shouldn't be expensive. But don't forget :

    Use this tyoe of RAM: DDR SDRAM (266 MHz), Upgradeable to 1GB

    By the way, even after the upgrade, I advise you to run a Defrag of your Hard Disk and clean all your temp files.
    There is a free and easy software to clean all temp and internet temp files: Ccleaner.

    Reg ram upgradation

    Each memory slot on the C555NR can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. There are actually 2 slots, but only one is easily accessible to you. By upgrading both the primary and secondary DIMMs, you could achieve a total of 2GB of memory but you would have to remove the 512mb chip that is already installed and replace it with 1GB (+1GB in the expansion slot as well.)

    If you don't plan on taking the computer to a professional to be serviced, you will probably only want to upgrade the memory in the secondary slot located under the memory cover on the underside of the computer. It can handle a 1GB SODIMM.

    FYI the memory is:
    200 Pin DDR2-533 PC2-4200 SODIMM

    Good luck!
