I had the same problem and no luck solving it until today. Found 2 512 MB A-DATA DDR333 SoDimm and now I get a display of 992 MB of RAM + the 32 MB of the "onboard" graphics card, adds up to total of 1024 RAM. So, there is still hope for us all.

Only thing that comes to mind is that board won't accept the larger memory configuration. did you check on that prior to buying and installing the memory sticks.

Compaq presario sr1320nx slow virtulal memery low


Each program that is simultaneously running on your computer is using some of the RAM. If the sum of the sizes of those programs is larger than the total amount of RAM installed on your computer, then Windows writes some of the contents of RAM to the disk-drive (compare to moving a book off the kitchen table onto the bookshelf, to make room for a different book on the table).
When Windows is finding that "too much" of the RAM has been written onto the disk-drive (because you are running "too many" programs at the same time), then you get the "low virtual memory" message. Windows will reserve additional space on the disk-drive, but this will take up to 1 minute.

I have a HP pavilon ze 5000 laptop and ther is no display on monitor. The leds' on front light up but cap lock and others do not. I have tryed anexternal monitor and nothing. I here the fans running...


Sorry to say something in the laptop has died or is faulty.
It may be the memory. Check in the place where the memory is installed and make sure it still clipped right in place.
Does the computer give a single beep when it is started? That is important as if it does not then the motherboard is not 'posting' and is likely damaged some way.

Recovery disk will not help u make ur notebook facotry fit
First u need to get a full version Windows install CD
try piratebay.org
u can get the torrent link file there for any win OS and download that,
it will get u the full working version of any Win OS
google search "Torrent piratebay Windows XP"
u also need to get/install BitTorrent software from google/internet to get the torrent link file...
the full file of WinOS say 400 - 700 mb may be a ISO file that u need to burn to a CD so that u can boot from the disk and install windows
visit my site (FormatDisk page)

Windows won't start after adding ram


Sometimes, when you add RAM, you need to tell the computer that you have, do that by going into the BIOS when you start up your computer. Or it could be a wrong ytpe of RAM! Hope one of these idias has helped you.

Installing only audio drivers will give you error "DRIVER INSTALLATION FAILED. COULD NOT FIND MEDIA DEVICE FOR THIS DRIVER" .so to solve this problem first you have to download microsoft universal audio driver and then install audio drivers
Audio Drivers
link 1 :microsoft universal audio

Windows xp wont reload


This happens so much with upgrades! We think we are making our pc's better, and then find it doesn't like it. I am assuming you completely uninstalled millenium, then tried to load xp? If you did not, the registry still has parts of millenium on it, and is asking for this. You need to completely uninstall millenium first. You need to obtain mill copy, and select uninstall, then when done, put in your new xp disk and try again. Lilacgerry xxx
