It depends on the motherboard. A neat trick you can use is goto the crucial.com website and use their system scanner. This will give you the low down on what you have and what you can upgrade to and how much.

ATI AGP card and Compaq Presario S3100NX with open AGP Slot


Hi,
This particular model of the system is basic home use system not built for games.
You can put in either a PCI graphics card or an AGP 4x graphics card that should not take more than 1.5v of power.
The max you can put is 128 MB , you can try the 256 MB, but i would suggest against it .

Thanks for using fIxya

Have a compaq presario sr2170nx....installed 1 gb memory but not showing up. swapped the memory sticks positions and restarted but still wont show up.


If you do not get the right memory for your computer it will not work. the memory you need is listed in the table below. And pay attention to the max amount of ram. Your system can only hold 2 gig and it comes with one gig installed

Component Attributes Memory Installed 1 GB Maximum allowed 2 GB (2 x 1 GB) Speed supported PC2-4200 MB/sec Type 240 pin, DDR2 SDRAM

RAM memory in a Presario computer


Hello,

No, it does not matter what size ram modules you have installed, aslong as they are supported by the laptop.

You can have 128MB on one slot and 1024MB on another for example, but these days its more common to have sizes like 1024MB and 2048MB. As long as the size and speed, type is supported it will work.

Thank you,
I will fix it!!
