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!

I have an EMachines VL33 motherboard on a T4852 Desktop. The machine will accept 1GB DIMMs and has 4 slots. Why do I see all configrators saying ti has a 2GB memory limit?


Fitted to Gateway computers as I recall. It is something to do with the density of the Ram being higher than the chipset will support. (when using newer ram). In theory, you can fill all slots with 512Mb modules to get the 2GB capacity, but I seriously question the claims of 2GB max capacity and fear that you will only get 256 x 4 modules to give you 1 GB *the board is very old)

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!

Opening programs is so slow virtual memory running low


which operating system you are using and what is the ram capacity? and onemore thing to check what is your virtual memory capacity. for that

Right click "mycomputer" > properties > advanced >click settings on performance > in advanced tab > increase virtual memory file size.
generally its size is ram capacity * 2 (ex: for 512mb its virtual memory size is 1GB) check that and we can increase the file size also.

How much RAM does a Compaq Presario v2000 would allow?


The Compaq Presario v2000 has a max ram capacity of 2.0gb.

You would need to purchase 2x 1gb ram modules are there are only two bays for these to go into. You would need to purcahse PC2700 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs.

No it won't hurt it.
But the maximum capacity for your laptop is 1GB. And you only have 2 slots, so you could use 2 512MB modules.
