Compaq nc8230 Ram Upgrade

I would like to upgrade to 2gb instead of the 512mb that the laptop came standard with but cannot find the second ram slot. Is this an operation that will need to performed by laptop technician or could I tackle it myself given the location of the ram slot? Thanks for your help!

Do a search on this website for nc8230 manual. I just did and found the complete manual loaded with hyperlinks. Follow the step by step instructions and you will find the process relatively straight forward. Essentially what you need to do is loosen a couple of screws in the back, remove the keyboard then remove a plate underneath which will expose the ram module.

Make sure you read the manual though.

Cheers

I have Compaq nx6310 and i want to upgrade my RAM ... both my 2gb ram modules work but if they are both in my laptop it wont turn on ... before i had 2 x 512mb ram modules and those work well ... even...


Hi there,

This is from the NX6310's documentation:

Intel 945GM Express Chipset supports up to 4096-MB maximum (2048-MB
533- or 667-MHz SODIMM in slots 1 and 2)
Intel 940GML Express Chipset supports up to 2048-MB maximum (1024-MB
533- or 667-MHz SODIMM in slots 1 and 2)

Basically if you have the Intel 940GML Express Chipset, then the machine only supports 2gb of ram as a maximum, to confirm this, go to Start > right click computer/mycomputer > go to manage > device manager > system devices.
Under there you'll see what chipset you have, if it's the Intel 940GML Express Chipset, you're out of luck, if it's the Intel 945GM, you may just have the wrong speed ram, make sure they are the same speed and compare them to the spec above.

Thanks,

Liam

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!

I have a Dell Dimension 2400. I want to upgrade from 512mb of memory to 1GB. The manual says I have two memory connectors. Do I get the 1GB, or two 512mb to upgrade? Thank you for your response.


Hello

Yes, you can upgrade your system upto 2GB RAM, buy another 512MB RAM DDR 333Mhz and install it to empty slot of RAM, it will upgrade the RAM to 1 GB.

Hope it will help, if so do rate the solution

Good Luck

Hp Compaq dx2200 MT RAM Problems


Firstly, you have to know that you can upgrade RAM as Double or Half of your pre-installed RAM. For example, like your pre-installed RAM is 256 MB, you can only upgrade RAM of capacity 128 MB or 512 MB. Secondly, check your previous installed RAM's speed that is shown in Ghz. You can only upgrade RAM to its similar speed, otherwise you get slow performance of PC.

Compaq M700 Ram Upgrade the second


i can find no spec on this but,if your notebook can take upt 576MB of memory, i would expect 2 x 256MB to be the max, as installing 1 x 512MB would be doubling the capacity allowed by one module slot.
