Question about Compaq Presario SR1030NX (DW256A#ABA) PC Desktop

2 Answers

Do I have proper memory bought to install?

Being an inexperienced hardware installer, but I am finding it easier to just learn to install hardware myself, with living in remote area. .. I ordered 1GB memory for my Compaq Presario SR1030NX PC, it came without instructions!! I wished I had came across this site to guide me some. It looks very interesting, I am pleased to see you all help others.
After scanning my computer, it tells me that I have the manufactory setting of 512MB. I dont know if I need to pull out that 512MB memory first before installing the 1GB. No instructions came with the part when it arrived here!!! How do I know the parts department sent me the right item?
Appreciate any help..thank you.. Marian

Somewhere on the case that the memory came in it should say 1GB DDR333 PC2700, 184p DIMM, 2.5v, Sync, CL=2.5, or some of that anyway.

How to know it will work? Give it a try! Open up the system and look for the socket where the 512 memory stick is located. There is an empty one next to it where you'll plug in your new memory. There is only one right way to plug it in. Your memory stick has a small notch in the bottom near the middle. That's to help you plug the memory in the right way. Carefully, place the memory stick into the socket, then push down on one side and then the next. The "holders" on either end will pop up and secure the memory for you.


The Compaq Presario SR1030NX takes the PC2700 DDR SDRAM DIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with 512 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Compaq Presario SR1030NX to up to a maximum of 2.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 512 MB (removable) standard Memory installed. For best system performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your system.

We received a donation of Dell Optiplex 755 Mini Towers. I can determine which and the proper order of LAN/Network driver (1,2,3 etc.) installations.


Find your specific model on http://support.dell.com
First, look for a "chipset" device-driver. If it exists, install it first, and reboot.
Second, look for an Ethernet device-driver. Download it to a USB memory-stick, and move the memory-stick to the Dell, and install it.
Third, the order of the other device-drivers does not matter, but having a working Ethernet connection makes it much easier to download/install the other device-drivers, and also to run "Windows Update" to download more device-drivers directly from Microsoft's web-site.

You may need to re-seat the memory module.

Shutdown your PC, remove the newly added memory module. and re-plug it back in, this time when you install it make sure you hear a click noise when installing it to ensure its properly installed.

I doubt you need to update the BIOS to support more memory.

Otherwise you may have a dud memory module.

When installing/removing memory ensure you are properly earthed so that you don't zap and kill the memory.

The three beeps tells you that something inside the system is not properly installed. Check all hardware installations and position properly all hardware not properly installed. If nothing is improperly installed, try cleaning the RAM with a piece of clean cloth and install properly.

How to install XP on pre loaded Vista in HP Laptop


I bought a cheap Compaq laptop that came with Vista Home Premium. The speed was horrendous! Anyway, I received the same no hard drive found error. To solve the problem, I went into the system config (BIOS) by pressing F10 on startup, and turned off SATA hard drive support (its supposed to make the hard drive run faster), I rebooted, inserted my Win XP Pro disc and viola, it detected the hard drive. I would say that the laptop runs a good 40% faster than before. Vista is a big no no when it comes to low end laptops built for word processing and internet browsing.
