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