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!

Anyone know why an ASUS PTGD1-LA motherboard will only take memory in slots A1 and A1 or A1 and B1 but not anything in B with both in A filled? Brand new memory.


HI,

The board has specific requirements for memory. Here's the Memory Configurations :

  • You may install 256 MB. 512 MB and 1 GB unbuffered non-ECC DRR DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.

• Installing DDR DIMM. Other than the recommended configurations may cause memory sizing or system boot failure.

• In dual-channel configurations, install only Identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs for each channel.

• Always install DIMMs with the same CAS Latency. For optimum compatibility , It Is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor

• Double-sided x 16 modules are not supported on this motherboard.

• Due to chipset resource allocation, the system may detect less than 4 GB system memory when you installed four 1 GB memory modules.


For dual-channel configuration you may:

install identical DIMMs in all four sockets

• install identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DlMM_B1 (blue sockets) and identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

• install same size DIMMs in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (blue sockets) and another same size pair in DIMM_A2 aid DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

Hopefully this will help understand how to install the new memory.

Thanks Mark

MMC card support in compaq


Well basically what you do is
1.) connect your memory card reader
2.) install the necessary drivers
3.) insert the memory card and it should show up as a removable disk in my computer similar to that of a pen)flash) drive

If the card reader is built into the computer then simply ensure the necessary drivers are installed (right click computer and select properties, then click device manager , it will show up in the list, if it has a yellow maker then it has a problem if its a question mark then it aint installed) if you dont have the drivers get them from the manufactures web page. IF everything checks out ok then put in the memory card and it will show up as a removable disk in my computer..

If you dont have a memory card reader or dont have the card reader built in then you will need to purchase one.

Problem w/ Pcchips A13G+


PC-Chips infamous for memory controller issues.

In the BIOS, set the memory speed to the highest CAS and lowest speed. Make sure FSB and memory timing are asynchronous so you can slow the memory. Turn off interleave, etc...
Is your memory mismatched? Use one stick, and pick the best one.
Try a different one.
Almost guarantee it is a memory issue of some sort.
