    Is it a Compaq Presario CQ60-220us? If so, remove ALL power. AC adapter (Charger) and Battery. Turn the laptop over. On the bottom is a Memory Compartment Cover. Remove it. There are TWO ram memory slots. One should be occupied by a ram memory module. You can upgrade to a larger capacity ram memory module. You can also add a ram memory module to the open ram slot. Here is a link to HP Support > Compaq Presario CQ60-220us > Manuals, In the list click on > Memory Modules - Windows Vista and Windows 7. Maximum TOTAL Amount is 4GB. (4096MB) Maximum Amount for EACH ram memory slot is 2GB. (2048MB) Uses DDR2 at 800MHz. (PC2-6400) It is SO-DIMM ram memory for laptops. (200 pin)

What does insert removable media mean

Your computer is waiting for you to insert a memory card or USB flash drive (something that can be removed from your computer). If you weren't about to do so then you had done something to make your computer expect removable media, such as clicking on a drive icon in "My Computer."

Compaq sr1303wm makes beeping

This is normally caused by a memory issue. Unplug the computer, pull out the memory chips. Now place one chip in one of the slots and turn the computer on. Even if the computer comes on, unplug it again and try the other chip in the same slot. Then repeat the process in the other slot. Hopefully one of the chips will cause the condition and not a memory slot. If it is a chip then just replace that memory chip. If it is a slot, you will have to either not use that slot or replace the motherboard.

How do I remove/replace the ram modules on compaq persario V2000?

Just remove the power cord, remove the case, then you will see the memory inside the slots. Release the catches on both ends of the memory then pull it out.

Maybe one of the memory chips is bad or one of the slots is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Meening of motherboard beep

The beeps or blinking lights tells the technician what is wrong with the computer. Most times it's a memory or video card issue. If you are getting beeps, try checking your memory.

Hello all Hey i have a set of compaq armadas that i got from the estate sale here last week i see they only have 64 meg of ram i want to increase the ram but i need to know how to get to the...

Hello there michael:
This is a fairly easy computer to upgrade the memory on what you need to do is
First unplug the computer and ensure it is off.
now look at the keyboard and you will see 4 black tabs towards the top of the keyboard these are the release tabs for the keyboard get a small flattip screwdriver and insert it in the back of them and they will slide down towards the space bar to unlock. do this for eack of the tabs .
now the keyboard will be able to lift out from the top and swing back towards you
Now you can see the memory modules
M700 Laptop takes the PC100 SDRAM SODIMMs. Memory Type, and comes installed with 32 MB or 64 MB (non-removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Compaq Armada M700 Laptop to up to a maximum of 544 MB or 576 MB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 32 MB or 64 MB (non-removable) standard Memory installed. ok
Then insert the ram nad replace the keyboards and slide the tabs back in place and you are done just start up the computer and you will get a memory notification press f0 to accept and the system will start ok
Hope this helps best regards Mike

My laptop Compaq Armada 1573D dosnot see the added memory that i have put in it is with in the spec ie 64meg

Are you sure that the new memory is fully seated? Did both side clips click tight into place against the memory chip? If this is does not solve the problem move on to step 2. Remove the original memory, keeping the new memory in place. Restart the computer. If there is nothing wrong with the memory, then i should recognise the new memory w/out any problem. If you can not boot due to "no memory present" or some similar error message then the memory chip is no good or unrecogisable by your laptop. If the chip is good and the computr starts w/no problem, then reinstall the original memory chip and restart the computer. If the problem persists the two memory chips are incompatible.

Here is what says you can install in you compaq armada.

Please let me know if this solves your problem, you can contact me at

Beeping sound at boot up, screen showing auto save and not booting up

remove the memory chip, clean it, insert it back in the slot again. "be carefull" dont wrongly place the memory chip else it will burn, there r two clips on each end of the slot, and in the middle a separator. hope this will help. if u have a graphic card in it remove it, clean it, and insert it back on the slot. if doesnt work then replace the memory chip or graphic card. now if u have two or three memory chips in the slot, then test one by one. remove all, then place one, then turn on pc see if the display come, by this way u will know if the chips are good or not, then try the others.

Memory card

They don't sell "memory cards" for computers. However they do sell RAM(aka:memory) chips. The type of RAM you are looking for is DDR-333. It's up to you on how much you want to add.
