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.

More than likely it's your memory or video card. Does anything ever post to the screen when you press the power button? If not, it could be the video card is bad.

Either your video card is bad or you might have some bad memory. Does the video ever post anything on the screen when you press the power button to start the computer?

According to Hp website your computer will handle two 512 Mb RAM chips. Make sure they are PC133. If computer will not boot with both inserted properly, one of them is bad. Put one in slot 1 and none in slot 2 and see if it boots. Then switch the chips put the extra chip in slot 1 and none in slot 2. See if it boots. This way you can troubleshoot a possible bad chip.

Blue screen on start-up. Mobo SIS-741 Chipset SIS741GX Rev 03


This problem can be caused by several things. First, are the memory chips exactly identical (brand, type, size, etc.)? If not, that will definitely cause the problem. Second, how many memory slots are there? If you have four, check the manual and make sure you're putting the memory in the correct slots. Some Mobo's require that you put chips in slots A1 and B1 and not A1 and A2. Also, some Mobo's have DDR slots and DDR2 slots, so make sure you're putting the right kind of memory into the proper slots. Some people fudge the memory by putting 400 mhz memory into slower slots, and that works one chip at a time - but if you install a second, identical chip, the system will fail. If all else fails and you've met these conditions, check the type of memory to be sure of the proper fit (use manufacturer's recommended brands and numbers) or try a different chip in the second slot. One chip could be bad.

Trying to locate where to put a memory card


Hello, was wondering if you meant memory card or memory chip. If it is a chip, it goes next to the other memory chip in the slot. Must be right memory or the motherboard may fry out.
If it is a memory card, you must have SD-MS slot. If you do not have the slot, you can by one and hook it up to the pci slot.
