Question about Compaq Presario 2580US Notebook
I keep having problems with my ram ,
I have 2x256mb of 2700 installed on this and it works fine
Every time i try to install 2x512 sticks of 2700 or 2100 it does not work
tried memtest on all four sticks and they report back they are fine
the 2x512 sticks come back
2700 comes back at 93mb of ram installed
2100 comes back at 193mb of ram installed
A BLAST FROM THE PAST , again and again here.
that mem test fails, that is because BIOS fails the SPD tests on the stick , it can not recognize your sticks
is this thing 15 years old
with a Pentium 4 northwood processor. wow.
HP does not support this pc
no OS stated,but dont matter in bios.
Intel dont support P4 now, either, now.
P4 does have strict limits on size and density of Dram.and sticks.
Kingston shows no support
same with Crucial. mem company
buying old used memory 15 years old, luck happens .
for from jokers on amazon that never ever seen a P4.
The BIOS is 15 years old now.(near) 2002 processor is the first one, and can be there.
the BIOS old scans the sticks SPD chip
then cant understand it at all.
unless its one of the old sticks made long ago.
BIOS will then rock back clock rates and lower mem. sizes ....
it does that so at least some memory can work
and not lock the system up totally dead,as a brick.
see. learn how BIOS defaults things to understand this.
why not say who's memtests.
there are 4 types and methods, name one,
tell how you did it and sure..
can name even more, I have them all. (just in case)

Are you using an older AMD processor? older socket 939 AMD processors had the memory controllers built into the chip and tended to be a bit wonky with RAM. If you have 4 Ram slots check to see if they are different colors and try to insert the RAM into every other slot matching the colors.

You can try updating the bios to use the new memory or you may have to buy a different brand of memory to work in the computer.All memory is not made the same.Some work in one machine and not in another.You won't know till you try it.

SOURCE: Compaq NX6325 Laptop Manual says
I have researched this and u have but one usable RAM memory slot, the other slot is not supported on your board, suggest u use a 1-2GB in the main slot where the stick goes that u have, go the web link for memeory sticks that can fill your needs up to 2GB in the one slot.
