Your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If not, you have a parity error in your first 64K of memory. First check your ram's. Reseat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks memory chips. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its first 64K of base memory in. You'll need to consult your manual to see which bank is first. If all your memory tests good, you probably need to buy another motherboard.

Or you have bought wrong type of memory for your motherboard.

Hi. half of 1 Gb memory is absolutely not enough. Can in principle be any set of 2 x1 Gb chips (1 gb per "place")? Compaq EVo D510i


Your best bet is to run the memory scanner at http://www.crucial.com
This should tell you exactly what memory modules you have installed and what slots you have available and more importantly what type of module your motherboard can support.

I would like to upgrade my cpu. Can I put a larger cpu? I have a compaq EVO D510 with a 1.8 processor.


You can upgrade the speed of the CPU. Of course in order to do that you must know the motherboard capabilities. If the motherboard is upgradable to 2.0ghz processor with the same specs with your 1.8ghz processor then you can upgrade. If the motherboard is un-upgradable, my suggestion is to replace the motherboard, get a new processor, memory module, etc. Meaning you just bought a new computer. For the mean time, upgrade your memory module. Un-install the software that you don't need. Especially the one the eats up the processor speed.

Ugrading to a newer system with higher performance specifications


You can upgrade you memory to 2 x 512MB DDR PC2700 333MHz, and install pretty much any size 2.5" IDE hard drive you wish. Installing Vista will make this machine very very slow. Windows 7 would be better as it uses less resources. Ideally XP Pro would be better suited based on this boards specifications.

My evo is running slow, i was thinking of upgrading the ram. what type of ram and what is the max?


Hi,
mine was running slow too. Like I'd turn it on and go grub some coffee, than make some toast and then after It'd bring the windows screen on.
If that's the case I suggest to try different hard drive, but my guess it's motherboard issue:
Here is memory information for EVO D51. Please let me know what model you have, so I can be more specific

Evo d3d upgrade!?


In the older days it was easier to tell you right away which processor would fit as there was not much variance in slot configuration. The Pentium 4 was released in several slot (sometimes called socket or pin-array configurations)configurations. The easiest way to tell is to remove your processor. Where it plugs into the slot (socket) you will see marked on the slot holder the configuration (Should say something like Socket 775 or Socket 478). Once you know what will fit in there you can go about ordering your upgraded processor. I would do some more information digging to see if your motherboard can handle the upgrade and how much memory it can handle. Have you already upgraded the memory? Sometimes more memory can make your computer faster. Also do you want it to be faster because it has gotten slower or because you want to run better games? If it has just gotten slower then go to CNET's download.com and download some Malware removal tools to help get your system cleaned up.
Let me know if this helps. This is a starting point.

Blue Screen of death


According to this link, the memory of Compaq Evo N610c can be upgradable to 1024 mb.

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11382_div/11382_div.HTML

Memory Upgrade for Compaq Evo N610C, the Compaq Evo N610C takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with of Memory. You can upgrade your Compaq Evo N610C to up to a maximum of 1.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with standard Memory installed. For best system performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your system. (Souce: http://www.memorystock.com/memory/CompaqEvoN610C.html)

So you have to install 512mb memory module on each slot to make up 1024mb of memory.

Did you install 512mb memory module on each slot or did you just install 1GB memory module in one slot?

Try to go back to 256mb RAM and see if you will have the same blue screen error. If you did not receive any blue screen, try to add memory into it or just insert 512mb first and then oserve again if you will have the blue screen error.
