    thanx again..

    the ram is 128mb sdram-pc100 singel module, how do i check compatble voltage, secondly the processor is on board, and heatsink is proper, the previous MB was a p2-450, as per the compatable models this p3-500 board fits right, the adapter is 18Volts, the batt is 11 v,both are for the orignal p2 450, now does this board require a lower volts adapter, how do i confirm that??pls help

    And again thanx for ur support.

    Warm Regards

How to fit memory to laptop compaq armada e500

most hp/compaq laptops will have memory slots located under the keyboard, and sometimes an additional memory slot accessed through a panel on the bottom of the notebook.
In your case, you have 2 memory slots located under the keyboard. Officially, this unit only supports up to 256 mb memory modules for a maximum of 512 MB of memory so if you already have that, be aware that larger capacity memory modules may not work.

The memory I install to Armada wont boot

Check the specs of the computer. The model you has two memory slots. One on the bottom of the notebook. One under the keyboard. Each equal 64 mb thus 128 mb. You need to replace both with sdram 256 mb sticks not one 512.
