How to upgrade RAM for compaq nx9010


Upgrading memory helps improve system performance. By following the step-by-step instructions in this document, you can successfully upgrade random-access memory (RAM) for all HP and Compaq notebook computers. While the graphics might not match your specific computer model, the steps will work. Read all instructions carefully before attempting memory installation. NOTE:Do not purchase memory modules until you know the type of memory used by the computer, the maximum amount of memory the computer can use, and the memory slot configuration. How to find the product number of your HP notebook PC To order replacement internal components such as memory, you must know the exact product number of the computer. For many HP notebook PCs, the product number and serial number are printed on a label on the bottom of the computer. Also, the product number and serial number are printed on the outside of the shipping box that you received when you purchased the computer. Product number locations can vary, and there are numerous methods to find the product number of your notebook. NOTE:A general family name may be imprinted on the case near the keyboard or on the frame around the display screen, but this does NOT provide sufficient information for ordering replacement parts. Finding memory information for your computer model (amount installed, maximum supported, and type of memory) Important memory upgrade information is in the specifications document for your HP computer. To find product specifications, browse to the Product Information category on the support page for your computer model. Refer to the Memory section within the product specifications document for memory information specific to your computer. Among the information listed, take note of the following items. It will be useful when purchasing memory and when performing the next steps. Amount of memory installed - The current amount of memory installed on your computer. Go to Verifying how much memory can be added to verify the amount of memory currently installed. Maximum memory supported - Subtract the amount of memory already installed from the maximum amount supported by the system to determine how much memory to get. You can also buy the maximum amount allowed and replace the currently installed memory. Once you know the maximum for your system, check Maximum memory supported by operating system to see how much memory your version of Windows will support. Use the lower of these two numbers as your maximum memory. Type of memory (including speed) - It is recommended to get the same type of memory (same size, same speed, same manufacturer) for each slot. For best performance, get the fastest memory that the motherboard supports. CAUTION: Due to the variety of possible configurations, some motherboards might not be able to properly configure memory if the array of small outline dual in-line memory modules (SO-DIMMs) contains a SO-DIMM that is not from the same manufacturer, has a different CAS latency value, or has a different density value (high and low used together). Make sure all SO-DIMMs meet the requirements of for the motherboard (the information listed in product specifications), have the same part number, are from the same manufacturer, and meet the basic memory requirements for your motherboard. If not, make sure that you can return the memory if it is not recognized by the system after you install the new memory. Determining where your memory is located Memory is installed inside of the memory module compartment, which is located on the bottom of the computer on most HP notebook PCs. Some HP notebooks are designed with the memory module compartment under the keyboard. If the memory module compartment for your particular notebook is located under the keyboard, HP recommends that you contact an HP-authorized support or repair facility for assistance in ordering and replacing the memory. Verifying how much memory can be added Prior to upgrading memory, you need to verify how much memory you currently have installed to determine how much memory can be added. Using your User Guide for memory installation instructions The User Guide contains helpful information and pictures showing how to remove and install memory in your specific notebook model. A copy of the User Guide is stored on the hard drive, and it is also available for download from the HP Web site. Installing memory Notebooks are designed so that additional memory can be added using a Phillips screwdriver. Use the following steps to install memory in an HP or Compaq notebook computer. After reviewing the following steps, if you are not confident in performing the installation yourself, contact an HP authorized distributor for technical assistance. NOTE: If someone other than HP installs or upgrades the memory, any damage caused by the memory and/or by a person trying to install or upgrade the memory is excluded from coverage under the product warranty. The customer assumes all risk and liability for damages for any such installation or upgrade. NOTE: Important! You might find that your HP or Compaq computer is able to support a physical installation of 4 GB or more memory. However, this maximum memory might be further limited by the operating system not being able to address the full range of physical memory. 32-bit operating systems, such as 32-bit types of Windows 7, Vista, and XP, can address approximately 3.3 GB. This limitation is present on all 32-bit hardware and 32-bit operating systems and is not limited to HP and Compaq PC systems or Microsoft software operating systems. Verify the computer is turned off, not simply in sleep or hibernate mode. Disconnect the A/C power adapter. Turn the notebook over and place it on a firm surface. Remove the battery. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the cover on the memory module compartment. (See the User Guide for instructions on how to remove the memory for the specific computer. If you need help finding the User Guide, refer to the section Locating your User Guide for memory installation instructions .) With the cover removed, and before you touch the memory, ground yourself to discharge any static electricity. NOTE: To ground yourself, and discharge any static electricity, place one hand on the case of the computer and touch the other hand to a metal surface or grounded object, such as the metal part of a lamp. To release the memory, use a small wooden tool, or fingernail, to spread the clips holding the ends of the memory in place. One side of the memory will rise when the clips are released. Remove the memory and place it in an anti-static bag. Remove the new memory from the protective anti-static bag and hold the memory by the ends. Place the gold contacts into the connector (bracket) and gently, but firmly, press the memory into place. The clips will click when the memory is properly seated. Replace the cover and tighten the restraining screw. Replace the battery and A/C power. Turn on the computer and allow it to reconfigure and recognize the additional memory and improve performance. Buying memory HP recommends purchasing memory directly from HP, an authorized HP dealer, or from a reputable computer parts supplier. You can buy computer memory from most local electronic stores and online shopping sites (such as www.crucial.com or HP , for example). Many of the online sites partner with HP to automatically suggest the correct type of memory based on the model of your computer. Before purchasing memory, make sure you know how much memory you need and what type of memory is compatible with your computer.

Trying to put new hard drive.when it starts up it beeps 3 times and no picture on the monitor.is the power supply bad? originaly the hard drive crashed and the trying to reinstall it kept coming up error...


3 short beeps is a base 64K RAM failure

Remove added memory
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
  • Additional information about determining the type of memory to use in a memory upgrade can be found on document CH000910.
Open computer and reseat memory
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
Swap memory location
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.
Try another computers memory
If you have access to another computer that uses the same type of memory try using its known good memory in your computer.
If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard and/or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Replace memory
If you've determined or believe that the memory in y our computer is bad we suggest that you replace it.
  • Additional information about determining the type of memory to use in a memory upgrade can be found on document CH000910.
  • Information about installing and adding new hardware including memory can be found on document CHADD.

Added more ram but it's not working Compaq E500


what did you mean not working ?? didnt see the new Ram memory ?/ or didnt boot at all ....anyway ...when adding new ram memory ..first thing you do is to remove the Bios battery for to let bios on defaults and let it be able to read the new added unit ....second ...be sure the new added ram is compatible and in the same frequency ,then remove the battery like I said and in the last ...reinstall the operating system ....always look at the boot to see if the ram memory that is displayed is the same value with the one you know that actually is installed on the slots...it should work if this was just an option to make it faster ...and not a wild guess cause it use to have issues and didnt boot before...

Memory added to two computers


Usually this means that the memory is not compatible with the computer you installed it on. Try taking the memory you installed out and put the old memory back in there. Then turn on the computer just to verify that it will load. After it loads successfully (hopefully), Shut down the computer and add one stick of memory to the computer. Turn it on, if it doesn't load then the memory is not compatible and if you have more memory then just keep following the steps above till you've tested all of the memory sticks.

Adding memory resulted in system failing to boot


Let's get some information about the memory you are using. Get CPU Z and run it with the new memory, then switch back to the old memory and run it again. Write down the results from the memory tab and the SPD tab (all slots being used). You want to make sure that your timings match to give yourself the best chance of success. All of your memory should be DDR2 533 (PC2-4200). SOMETIMES you can use faster memory and it will simply slow down and function. Other times it will not.

RAM installation


Hi hunter555,

First off, you've done a lot of work for nothing. What you need to do is put back the new memory. When the Dell Bios boots, it confirming that it has detected the new memory. What you need to do is hit the F1 key to reboot and continue on to the XP installation. When you open the case, it will say the same thing. Don't worry about it, it's only confirming that the case was opened. Typically, I shut off the case intrusion detection, only because I'm always adding things to the machines and it's just a extra step I have to take to boot. However, it's good to know that your bios is confirming that you've opened the case, and that you've put in new memory. You want to make sure that the setup recongizes the entire memory in the banks. So, go to the system information page and make sure that it's reading the original and the additional memory 256k you added. Otherwise your done.

Good Luck

Added memory but one memory card (Original) not recognised


OK, according to Crucial.com your RAM does need to be installed in matched pairs.

Here is a link for your computer information:

http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Presario%20SR1460AN


If you get another 512MB module and install both pair, it should work well.
