What is the model of your computer?

Is it a tower?

If it is a tower, look on the back of your case. Along the right side there should be two screws. Remove both screws, grasp the side of the case where you removed the screws, and slide the side backwards. The panel should lift right off.

I need to know what RAM I should use in my Compaq Presario 5000 desktop computer


You have three Ram Memory slots.

EACH ram memory slot's maximum amount is 256MB
Total Maximum Amount for the computer is 768MB.

Uses SDR Sdram ram memory.

[Single Data Rate Sdram. Commonly just referred to as Sdram.

That is a misnomer.
All ram memory from SDR to DDR3 IS Sdram.

Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory.

SDR Sdram = Single Data Rate Sdram
DDR Sdram = Double Data Rate Sdram
DDR2 Sdram = Double Data Rate 2 Sdram
DDR3 Sdram = Double Data Rate 3 Sdram

Just thought i would share ]

Uses SDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 133MegaHertz. (133MHz)
Also known as PC133.

Make sure it is,

A) Non-Buffered
B) Non-ECC
C) Low density
D) CAS Latency of 3 (CL3)
E) Uses 3.3 Volts

Here's an example,

I am the owner of a compaq presario pc SR5050NX. I want to add more memory. I believe that it has its original memory of 1024 MB. There are four slots with only two memory sticks. How much memory can...


You can find the motherboard specifications here. Here's what it says about memory:
  • Dual channel memory architecture
  • Four 240-pin DDR2 DIMM sockets
  • Supports PC2 3200 (400 MHz), PC 4200 (533 MHz) and PC2 5300 (667 MHz) DDR2 DIMMs
  • non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
  • Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB*
    • 32 bit PCs cannot address a full 4.0 GB of memory.
You want to get the same type (DDR2), and the same speed (PC2-4200) as what's already in the computer. (You can use the higher-speed PC2-5300 memory, but don't go below the 4200.)

Suitable memory is available from many sources, not just HP/Compaq. Here's a typical part from Tiger Direct, one of the places I buy from. You might find memory locally is you're near a big-box retailer like Best Buy or have computer shops around. I'd suggest buying two more 1024MB (1 GB) modules. This would give your computer 3GB, which is plenty for typical users.

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!

My compaq presario intermitantly reboots


only two most possible hardware that can cause intermittently reboot your computer, the video driver or memory. your first step to eliminate this problem is try to right click my computer then properties then click the device manager tab and double click the display adapters and then you can see the video card brand and model then right click it and click update driver using internet or online and then follow screen instruction and after installation reboot your pc and i think it works. your second step is to turn off your pc and unplug the power cable and open the casing cover of your pc and find the memory and removed from the slot of motherboard and clean the contact surface with rubber preferably pencil eraser dont touch the surface with your hand it can damaged the memory, after cleaning install back to its designated slot then fixed the casing and try to power the pc and done.

I have just installed more memory to my computer and do not notice any difference in the speed of my computer


you may have installed memory that may not be compatible with your motherboard

do you know what type of mother board you have..
your memory must match in this categories
1. type (ddr, ddr2, sdram, simm, rimm)
2. speed (measured in mhz or sometimes given as a pcXXXX number)
3. cas number.
4. whether is ECC, parity, buffered, registered, non ecc
5. check your motherboard documentation to find exactly in what slot your new memory stick should go and which one should go first and which one should go second (ex. if you have dimm slots and you have 4 slots (2 pairs of different color) you may need to install one memory sticks like this: memory - empty - memory -empty
if one of the items that should be matched does not correspond your computer could work but it will work at the slower speed (ex. memory 1 (slow) + memory 2 (faster) = speed of memory 1

note: don't confuse memory capacity (1g, 512mb) with speed (333mhz, pc2700)... the best thing to do is to check the documentation of *********** board or even take the memory stick that you originally have and have the store looking for the memory that you need...
