Compaq Presario 5352 memory installation recognizing

I have the Compaq and do not know how to get it to recognize the 512MB memory I installed in 1out of 2 slots that exist. THe other slot has the existing 64MB memory stick in it. THe 512MB is a Kingston PC100 DIMM that I got today and I am adding this to be able to upgrade the OS to run the virus protection and then to install the updated printer.

Be sure that the memory u got is compatible in your presario 5352. I tell you that adding 512mb to current 64 mb maybe a problem. you should remove the 64mb and replace it by 512mb and be sure that the new memory is compatible. want more information about your presario go to then search "compaq presario 5352"

My computer only recognizes 224mb of ram but it has 512mb installed what can i do?

Assuming that you have (2) 256mb installed, it appears that one is not seated correctly or not working. Remove and reinstall both chips

Presario won't recognize second 256 RAM

Remove the original module, install just the new one and then start your computer. If it doesn't start, the memory you bought is bad. The system boards used in the Compaqs will auto-detect memory, and there are no jumpers or BIOS settings needed.

Want to replace 2x 256mb of memory with 2x 512mb of memory into my hp compaq presario v4000

Hi there.
Yes you can upgrade the memory to 2 x 512MB DDR SDRAM memory.
You will be pleased to know that the system supports up to 2GB DDR SDRAM memory (2 x 1GB)
Please be gentle when installing the new memory taking care to remove the battery and the mains power from the laptop first before installing.

Have fun and thanks for using FixYa!!

What are the ram limits on a compaq presario 5000a. I put 256 ram in the compaq and it only reads 128. Why?

You can install up to 3 sticks of 512 mb of memory. Did you add a 256 stick to the already-existing 128? You need to put DDR266/PC2100 memory. To troubleshoot, remove the 128 stick and put your 256 in and see if it is recognized. You will know right away from the bios screen. Memory needs to be the same type.

To Be pricise ...there is no hardware problem.
The problem can be two.

1.Your computer supports max of 1.5 GB RAM.....For this check with other vendors too.

2.You have to update your BIOS.

If you can provide me the motherboard no and details i can clarify more on it

Files copy errors during the XP installation process are often an indication of BAD RAM.

If you have dual RAM modules, try install with 1 memory module installed

Memory Recognition

The BIOS recognizes the same speed chip. Say, "PNY 512mb 333mhz 12ns". If you mix and mismatch, the BIOS won't see it even though your motherboard will take the differant type chips. They should all be the same.
