You can run XP on 384 MB of ram but it will be sluggish. The minimum requirements are 300 MB. You would be cutting it close.

Compaq presario s5100nx very slow windows xp

1GB of RAM is not enough to run Windows XP and the programs you installed efficiently. Removing unnecessary programs should make more memory available for necessary programs but it will never be fast. is a great resource for memory upgrades but I don't think you should invest in a computer that old with a completely unsecure and unsupported operating system (XP).

I hope this helps.

Don't do it!!! If you are going to do such an upgrade, buy a PC Case. By the way, you can buy bare bones at Systemax for about $200 and include almost everything needed but the Windows.

Adding memory

You shouldn't,t have to go into bios at all. Shut the computer off, install the ram, turn on computer. The bios will see the memory automatically.

How to upgrade a new compaq presario SR2150NX?

Add more RAM, 512MB ram will slow your computer down because when you run out of ram the computer uses the hard drive as vitrual ram. I have 4GB in my Vista machine and it is faster than XP.

Another suggestion is to turn off the hard drives indexing. Right click on your "C" drive and unhook the "index this drive for faster searching" box.
