This might be incompatibility issue with the memory and pc. check for system specs from compaq and check also for maximum memory capacity.

It's unlikely that you have 2 or more defective memory modules. Remove all cards such as video, modem, etc. Also disconnect all drives (hard drive, CD, DVD). Try booting with one memory module at a time. If still a no go then I would suspect the motherboard.

I hace a compaq presario 700 . I added 256 memory


remove the memory ... try again ...

there is the possibility your memory was not seated correctly and/or it is not the correct memory.

remove it to get going again ...

256 is a strange number ...

please go to www.4allmemory.com and have them scan your computer. They will make recommendations based on that scan. Compare what you got with their recommendation.

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.

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.

RAM upgrade gone wrong?


Did you already try using last know good configuration?
When your computer boots instead of f10 press F8. Then select last known good configuration and enter.

if it didn't work try booting up the computer without the memory see if it will have the same problem.

Memory card


Hey there speedboy2024, the answer is 768mb, spread over three SDram memory slots. I would try 256/256/128, if you were trying to max. Good Luck!

Compaq presario 5000 startup problem


Firstly the keyboard does blink, but do you hear 2 beeps one then another a few seconds later, if not memory or graphics fault. Are you able to start in safe mode(press F8 when pc is booting up)when menu comes up highlight 'Start windows with last known good configuration' then press enter and it should re boot. The graphics card(if it's not onboard)may need to be removed and re seated, also the memory. Also check hard disk drive ide and power cable.
