You can install up to 3 sticks of 512 mb of memory. Did you add a 256 stick to the already-existing 128? You need to put DDR266/PC2100 memory. To troubleshoot, remove the 128 stick and put your 256 in and see if it is recognized. You will know right away from the bios screen. Memory needs to be the same type.

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

How much more memory cah I put in thei computer?


if you have that INTEL S5000XVN Motherboard in your pc. You need to buy PC2-4300 or PC2-5300ram. Intel say it can handle up to 32gb of ram. As it has 8 slots for ram i would say that could be possible but very very expensive. 1gb a slot would more than enough.

Ram when i upgrade 128 sdram to 256 sdram in intel 845glly it shows spd


It is not seieng the ram, try swapping the ram around or leave out the 128MB, just put in 256MB, if no boot then the ram is not compatible or faulty, not all ram sticks work in all motherboards.

The Bios on the laptop motherboard only will recognize a total of 1gig Ram. So the 256 stick would be removed and 2- 512 sticks installed.
