Usually they are both in the same spot: inside a removable panel on the bottom of the laptop. One is just above the other. If you only find one slot on the bottom of the laptop, then the other one is usually just under the keyboard. Some keyboards are easier to remove than others. Sometimes there are screws going thru the bottom of the laptop casing that hold the keyboard in, as well as some small screws going along the top of the keyboard; which are usually covered up by the molding with the power button on it. There could be several screws that you have to remove in order to get the molding and keyboard removed. Be delicate with the ribbon cables. They can be expensive to replace, and be sure to remember exactly where all your screws go back into.

Can the compaq presario c500 take more RAM than the standard 1.5Gb


You can upgrade the memory to a maximum of 2 GB using either 533 Mhz or 667 Mhz modules. There are two memory slots in this notebook so you would need two 1GB modules

I have a laptop of compaq brand whose modle no is presario C700 in which intel celeron microprocessor is installed. 512 MB ram is installed i want to update it 4 improving its speed. i want to setup a...


I found the manual on the net that gives you instructions on replacing components if you're not sure how, it can be found here.

RAM upgrade
The Compaq Presario C700 uses DDR2 Laptop RAM as shown below.
slasher_x_11.jpg The motherboard of the Presario C700 has two RAM slots, one of them will be occupied by the 512MB RAM (running at 667MHz) module you have at present. This leaves one more that can accomodate a DDR2 667Mhz card of up to 1GB or you could get two 1GB DDR2 800MHz (the faster DDR2) cards and remove the 512 leaving you with a wopping 4GB of memory, that'll definately speed it up. Just remember the Presario C700 can only have up to 2GB of RAM so don't go higher than that or Windows will not boot for some reason.

Processor upgrade
The Presario C700 supports any Socket P, Core 2 Duo or Pentiun Dual Core chips. The fastest processor you can get is the Intel T8300 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo Processor with 3MB L2 cache and an 800MHz FSB

For a full list of compatible processors go to page 9 of the user manual found here.

I have a compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc, was wondering how do i go about upgrading the RAM?


I have checked the Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Specification It Originally has 2GB Memory and supports upto 4GB RAM max. If you intend to upgrade the RAM, you can buy additional RAM and put them in you system. Here is the HP Guide to Replace RAM and How to Upgrade RAM Guide
Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX has two RAM slots for DDR-2 (533 or 667) Memory Modules. First you have to check that the RAM slot is available for additional RAM. I believe that it has two modules of 1GB each in both slots. So, you have to get two modules of RAM 2GB each to upgrade to 4GB (or one 2GB RAM module to upgrade to 3GB). Hence, it is recommended that you get 2GB replacement module for each 1GB module you have on you system from local laptop repair/ service center, which would be cost effective as existing 1GB RAM Modules would be useless for you upon upgrade.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

I have compaq presario 2.6ghz with Max Capacity 1gb Ram- is there anyway i can increase capacity to 2gb or even higher?


Unfortunately, if the manufacturer states that the max RAM supported is 1GB, that's going to be all you're going to be able to install - unless you replace the motherboard. This can be a considerable expense.

One last thing you could do is go to Crucial - there, you can run a scan on your computer to find out what memory options you have. I would be very surprised to learn they differ from what Compaq is telling you (unless the motherboard was replaced by someone already).

Please rate this reply - good luck!

Bsod when adding 1gb of ram to my compaq 2200 laptop


jayson30

In regards to the memory issue the problem is that your notebook only support 1gb of memory so you will have to split it between 2 512 sticks as that is the max the computer can handle. This is why the system blue screens with the 1bg stick.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Cannot upgrade Memory on Compaq Presario 2110US


hi Rileysue ... what is the model of your HP? ... the ram modules generally have to match each other ... brand should make no difference at all .... start by removing all of the old and add one stick of the new ... you may also have to go into the BIOS each time and verify the change in ram size ... then add the next stick and so on...
