Amy,

  1. Just find out the RAM inside and see carefully. In both end there are locks. Slighly push it outward both locks, and your RAM will be out.
  2. To insert, see care fully it will fit in only one way, see the DIMM connection point and your RAM stick carefully, you can easily recognize the right way. So just put it inside the slot and you will see lock will be automatically closed. be sure that lock were open before inserting the RAM Stick.
If any problem just ask me.
Please post your feed-back.
Thanks
Iqbal

Compaq system board 686,0MB (320756) board manual


That's an old mainboard (Motherboard), used in a Compaq Presario 5716 desktop computer. (And perhaps a few other Compaq Presario's)

1) Uses a Slot 1 (Intel) processor slot.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slot_1

2) Maximum Intel Slot 1 processor that can be used, is an Intel Pentium III, with a 100MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (100MHz FSB)
Maximum frequency rate for the processor is 700MHz.
('Speed')

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium-III/TYPE-Pentium%20III%20%28Katmai%29.html

(Scroll the page down)

3) Ram memory is SDR Sdram at 100MHz. Or also known as PC-100. (168 pin. 82 on each side. Two Locating Notches on bottom. Commonly just known as Sdram, but that is a misnomer)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PC100

Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram memory is 384MegaByte.
Maximum Amount for each ram memory slot is 128MB.
There are 3 ram memory slots.

4) Do not know what the jumper settings on the motherboard are.

5) Do not know what the Front Panel header pinout is.

6) Can run Windows XP Home Edition, but do not expect a world of performance.

Regards,

Turned computer on and monitor instantly goes to sleep,also cant turn off the computer using button.have to use switch on power supply


Try this, unplug everything from the other board except the main hard drive, power connections, and monitor. if it does not come up, remove ram cards, leaving one stick. try again, if it is still bad swap ram sticks. If after all of this it still does not work you have a bad motherboard or processor

I have the mother board of compaq p4d5oo its has the power and running on also but shows no display reasons


Hi- Sorry to hear your having a problem.

Try this
1 - make sure the monitor cable is in and tight and plugged into the power with no wobble.
2 - check the monitor on another pc
3- if on board video make sure the video is 'on' - if a used board sometimes the on board is shut off to allow better communication with an add on card.
4- if an add on card - pull and put it in another slot
5- try another add on video card
6 - try your video card in another machine
7 - take it to staples for a 'tune up' and see what they say - they offer free tune ups and they would soon discover the problem for you and if it is a card they will gladly sell you a replacement,

There is also the ram - please remove all but one stick of ram and try booting the pc - if it works and the monitor works you will need to adjust your ram to something that works.

I hope this works for you and gets you going in the right direction.
Please rate me and let us know if this works.
Thanks

Will Windows XP work on a Compaq 5020?


Yes, but it will be somewhat slow on such a old computer. I would recommend getting a new computer or buying a newer used computer, for example from ebay.

What motherboards are compatible with a compaq presario sr1500nx?


I doubt you will find a non compaq mother board that fits the case.
It might be easier to get a new case and motherboard and then move all other parts to the new case.
I checked the specs online, the system was designed in 2005. The system RAM and CPU will limit you performance.
You might want to try tiger.com or a similar type of supplier. They may be able to find a replacement that fits.

What are the ram limits on a compaq presario 5000a. I put 256 ram in the compaq and it only reads 128. Why?


You can install up to 3 sticks of 512 mb of memory. Did you add a 256 stick to the already-existing 128? You need to put DDR266/PC2100 memory. To troubleshoot, remove the 128 stick and put your 256 in and see if it is recognized. You will know right away from the bios screen. Memory needs to be the same type.

Just want some more memory


Getting additional memory The below commands will help allow your computer to load programs into memory more efficiently allowing you to have more memory for MS-DOS programs / games.
Ensure you have the below three lines at the beginning of your config.sys file.
DEVICE=C:\Windows\HIMEM.SYS
DOS=HIGH,UMB
DEVICE=C:\Windows\EMM386.EXE NOEMS
By placing the DOS=HIGH,UMB on the second line, this can, in some cases, save memory because it is loading DOS into upper memory before loading the memory manager. Additionally, the first and third lines cannot be loaded into high memory because these lines are the memory managers.
Load all your devices in your config.sys and autoexec.bat into high memory.

Dont for get to Vote / Merry Christmas....Good Luck!
