Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1603WM (ED861AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Well i have a compaq presario sr1603wm and basically i was going to buy a new computer but thats like 600 bucks so i was wondering... what kinds of graphics cards/ram/processors/power supplies can i use to replace my current ones..im thinking that by simply replacing things with better ones will save me the time and money for a new computer, letting me use my money for better things, especially if i buy these replacments on ebay. anyway yea the graphics card and ram are really the things im confused since there are so many kinds, but i also wanted to ask about power supplies and processors...anyway what kinds can i use and what kinds can i not use? thanks

You can use these processors:


AMD Athlon 64 (3000+ - 4000+)
AMD Athlon 64 FX (51 - 60)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 (3600+ - 4800+)
Some AMD Opteron 1xx series
Some Sempron 3x00+ (Step E3,

any standard wopeer supply will do, and you will need a more powerfyul power supply for a mre powerful graphics card.

you can get any pci-e card. an nvidia 9800gt used to be the 2nd best graphics, but its now the minimum card for gaming. I wqould reccomend a 9800, or at least an nvidia gtx260. the higher the numper, per series, and the 4xx and 5xx series are btter than the 2xx. be sure to check the graphics card for reccomended power supply rating.


for the ram, you need pc3200 DDR ram(DDR-400) or higher DDR ram, not compatible with ddr2 or ddr3.

I have a compaq sr1603wm and I was wondering what motherboard I can use to replace the stock one and if I would need to replace the power and or fan thanks..


You need and AMD motherboard that supports the Sempron processor -939 Socket. It's a little difficult to find them now, but they are still available. Since you have a brand computer. You make have to give up some perks like front usb port or the audio cable might be too short to mount on the new board. Be prepared for some compromise when installing a different board.

Compaq sr1603wm issues...


Your computer is infected with a virus. The only solution for that problem is that you should reformat your hard disk and install a new copy of Operating System to it again. If you do have important files on that drive, you can back-up them by plugging it to another computer and there you will the content of you drive. Hope this will you..Thanks..
