Think pads always come with extra memory slots. ask your nearest IBM center for memory compatability.

as for the hard disk, you can't add extra but you can replace it with a large capacity hard disk.

Hard disk & ram problem


The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

I can't install Windows Xp Sp2 For Compaq Presario Cq60 Model. a blue screen error occured after completing the files from cd to ram before entering lience agreement


You need to check your system ram or memory. If you have 2 system ram or memory unplug the other memory and install the windows xp sp2 again. If still having a blue screen try the other memory then run the setup again. Also if you have an extra hard disk drive you can test it that or plug your hard disk drive to the other laptop and run the windows xp sp2 using your hard drive. If you can install the windows xp sp2 on the other laptop that means your hard disk drive are good. If your memory and to the other laptop are compatible plug it and run the windows xp sp2 installer to see and to diagnose what are really causing problem. Have a nice day.

I just put a new 9 cell battery, two new 2GB ram cards & a new, blank hard drive in our Dell Inspiron 1525. But the screen does not seem to work when I turn it on, or after I put in an installation...


Remove the battery, and connect the AC power. Then, try to start it.

Disconnect the AC power, and remove the "new" disk-drive.
Then, connect the AC power, and try to start it.

Disconnect the AC power. Remove the "new" RAM, and put the "old" RAM back in.
Then, connect the AC power, and try to start it.

If it does start, add the "new" disk-drive, and try again.

If it does start, add the "new" RAM, and try again.

My hp dv6ooo laptop wont power up,when i press the power button it turn on for about 1 sec then shut off


I had a similar problem with an HP laptop. I had to pull out the battery, make sure the laptop was plugged into a power source and then power it on. It should boot up with the battery out. Once it is on and stays on, you can replace the battery and it should charge. If it has Vista, you probably need to add extra RAM to it. When I researched the problem, I found out that the manufacturers were selling notebooks with inadequate RAM for the Vista program. We also had to get a new power adapter for it. We then used the original restore disk to bring it back to its original settings and now it operates so much faster and doesn't stop when downloading from the Internet or from email. Like a brand new computer. (If you use the restore disk make sure to back up all your personal files or anything else you need to put back on that wasn't on the computer originally. The restore disk, which should have been in your original box, will erase everything you added to the hard drive. Easiest way to backup your files is to put them on a memory stick.) I'd be interested to hear if this helps with your problem. Good luck.

Not enough sdram, everything very slow loading what to do to add more ddr sdram?


1. This may not be extra ram being needed
this may be a virus or you have loaded your hard drive and will need to clear some files and programs may be needing a lot of space.
2. You may have to many Mp3 file stored or videos. Videos and music Mp3 files take up a lot of space on the hard drive and can potentially lock the hard drive.
3.You the utility in Windows to clear some hard drive space. Found in the "accessories" then System Tools >.then "disk cleanup" This is for Windows XP.
Windows 7 is totally different but basically the same principal.
I hope this helps. Have a great day

Why are my pc to slow and how can i find a good virusprogram>?


Speed depends on:
* the disk-drive -- run "Disk Defragmenter" to optimize the placement of files, and run "Disk Cleanup" to delete unnecessary files;
* the CPU-speed (a laptop computer running only on battery power will slow itself down; so, connect the AC power)
* the amount of RAM (add more RAM).

See: http://www.Microsoft.com/security_essentials for free anti-virus software for XP/Vista/7 (not Windows 2000).

I got 256mb internal ram and i put 1gb external ram on my hp compaq nx6110 laptop and after few months my hard disk stops working. so now i want to buy a new hard disk so how many gb of hard disk i should...


I think you're confusing RAM (memory) with hard disk space (storage). Installing more RAM makes your computer run faster. More hard disk space gives you more room to store stuff. Which would you like to do?

Hard Disk Drive


Good day sir/maam, if your problem is the hard disk drive, try to reformat it first, usually reinstall your XP. if it cannot be formatted or cannot detect by your laptop. go underneath your laptop, and find the access panel for your hard drive. Remove the panel and you may find the Hard drive. Get a new one, replace it reinstall your OS. It would be better if you can add extra information about your hard drive problem. Better yet visit your local service center/dealer for proper advice.

I want to upgrade my hard drive.


If you have 50% or more disk space free then you may not need a larger hard disk at this time. If you have 512Mb of RAM, you can get better performance with 1Gb or better still 2Gb of RAM if your Acer can support more than 1Gb of RAM.

Video memory


1) On board video devices often use main system RAM,
by remapping it into their own address space.

This is designed to be CHEAP not GOOD.

Any RAM used by the video controller is NOT available to
to Windows, thus reducing system performance.

2) Sacrificing system RAM for video is a bad idea, the
system needs it more. Extra RAM in video controllers
is used mostly for 3-D effects and gaming, because
most video systems already have plenty of RAM for
implementing colors screen resolution.

On board video controllers are never fast or exotic enough
to benefit from the extra RAM anyway.

The rest of the system (i.e. Windows) on the other hand
can put any extra RAM to a far better use, by reducing
the need to store transient data on disk.

Don't forget that a hard disk is 10,000,000 times slower than
physical RAM, and when Windows starts running out of
physical RAM, it starts swapping data to disk (thrashing).

The performance penalty is not subtle !!!! Operations that
took a few seconds can take hours and even days.

3) It may be possible to change the balance between
system RAM and VIDEO RAM in the BIOS.
This depends on the motherboard.

4) If you want to drastically improve performance, do
buy a separate video card, for example an ATI Radeon
Saphire and disable the onboard video.

You must make sure the video card will fit in your
motherboard. Depending on the boards age, it
can use one of several types of I/O slots:

Vesa
PCI
AGP 2x
AGP 4x/ 8x
PCI Express

etc...

The card must match the slot.

5) The suggestion that adding a separate video card would
somehow slow down your computer is absolute non-sense.

Tell the guy to read some books, take a few classes, and
keep his opinions to himself until he knows something.

Internal video cards (on-board) have limited capabilities,
and steal system resources. Add-on cards are designed
for performance, by adding resources and off-loading
graphics related computation from the main CPU,
allowing it to do 0ther things.

6) Finally, using the hard-drive to supplement video RAM
is impossible. The hard disk is way too slow. It would be
like hitching a snail in front of your Porche. Perhaps
even a little worse.

Video RAM needs to be extremely fast, even faster than
system RAM. It is often organized using ultra-wide buses
with interleaved addressing for maximum speed. Also,
for this reason, good video RAM is not cheap. A good
Video CARD will have between 256 to 512 MB of fast RAM.

If you run Windows XP, your system should have at between
1024 to 2048 MBytes of system physical RAM.

Less RAM will make your system drastically slower when
doing things like video and image processing.

For VISTA, two gigs is the absolute minimum.


Disk are used for storing lots of data at a slow speed,
and retaining it with the power OFF.

Hard disks can store about 1,000 times as much as
physical RAM, but the access time is up to 10 million
times slower:

RAM can be accessed in 1 nanosecond.
DISK takes 10 milliseconds.

Hope this answers your question
