Updating RAM on Presario R3000

I bought a new software program, and it states I don't have enough RAM to install the software. My Compaq Presario R3000 has 256 RAM, and I need 512 to run the software. My question is this, is the Kingston Technology - 1GB PC5300 SoDIMM Notebook Memory compatible with my laptop? And do I need to buy one or two? If so, will it make my laptop run alot faster? Is memory easy to install? I know enough to just ask the questions, thanks!

No. Your Laptop is not compatible with DDR2 RAm. You can only use DDR SDRAM. Click here to checkout some stores..

Compaq presario s5100nx very slow windows xp


1GB of RAM is not enough to run Windows XP and the programs you installed efficiently. Removing unnecessary programs should make more memory available for necessary programs but it will never be fast. Crucial.com is a great resource for memory upgrades but I don't think you should invest in a computer that old with a completely unsecure and unsupported operating system (XP).

I hope this helps.

Hi,

You can find the bios driver for your laptop HERE. Since your updating drivers you might want to update all of them, that way you've got a current system.

Good Luck

Upgrade memory for Compaq Presario R3000 PC Notebook


What OS are you running? 768 should be enough to run XP and keep you from getting that error message. On laptops their are normally just 2 slots for ram, so you would need to replace the 256 with the 512, which would bring you up to a gig of ram. Do you know if your computer has any spyware/adware on it? Sometimes malware can take up all your memory and generate just such an error. Do you know how many processes are running when you first login? Thank you.

Presario r3000 too slow


I have a R3000 and after many years of usage many things happen and add to your hard drive. It can be a number of things from not enough hard drive space for your cache file to bad installed drivers.
I would suggest a full format and install using the backup disk that Compaq sent with the system. You should have the WinXP code on the bottom of the computer. This way you get a 100% clean system. You will have to reinstall any additional software such as MS Office or your virus scanner.
Hope this helps

Kees,

It sounds like you have fried motherboard. If that's the case, you have to get it serviced by a place your manufacturer recommends. Sometimes the cost can be greater than just buying a new laptop, so shop around and see what you can find price-wise.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!
