Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook

3 Answers

Compaq Presario R3000 2GB memory upgrade problem. I am having problems upgrading my Presario from 512 MB (2 x 256) to 2 GB (2 x 1GB). If both 1 GB DIMMs are installed, I get intermittent application crashes. Running Windows Memory Diagnostic tests and I get failures on the Stride6 and WMATS tests. If I mix and match either 1GB module and either 256 MB module, then there are no crashes or Windows Memory Diagnostic test failures. I can mix the modules between the slots, as well, with no failures. Errors only occur when both 1GB modules are installed. The -BIOS is up to date at F.45 -1GB modules are new TRUMP DDR 1GB-333MHz SO.DIMM Any ideas?

Try a different brand of memory.

It is unlikely you can do anything with the memory you have to fix this problem.

The memory has the same specs as what another manufacturer recommends.

Be careful buying from auctions as they MAY be gradeouts. Always make sure you can return the product. Crucial has these for about $114 for your machine as an example.

Most (if not all) R3000 models are not designed to support memory in excess of 1280 MB. HP posts each model's specifications (including "memory max") on its website:

I have 512 mg of memory. Would there be a big difference if I add a 1 gb stick and keep the 512 mb , as oppose to removing the 512 mb and replace with two 1 gb sticks?


The performance of your laptop will improve if similar memory is placed in each of memory slot.If 1gb memory and 512mb memory are placed in available slot you will only get the performance of a single 1gb memory.but two 1gb memory are used performance will be similar to a 2gb ram or more.

It is slow with memory card provided with mobile 256mb.


hi ,

u can go for max512 mb..dont go 1 gb as this will hamper the speed of ur mobile..& if u switch to 512 mb..do try to keep all the stuff in memory card rather than sim memory..transfer mostly all the things from phone memory to mem card.This will sort the speed problem of ur mobile

 

Thanks
