I am the owner of a compaq presario pc SR5050NX. I want to add more memory. I believe that it has its original memory of 1024 MB. There are four slots with only two memory sticks. How much memory can...

You can find the motherboard specifications here. Here's what it says about memory:
  • Dual channel memory architecture
  • Four 240-pin DDR2 DIMM sockets
  • Supports PC2 3200 (400 MHz), PC 4200 (533 MHz) and PC2 5300 (667 MHz) DDR2 DIMMs
  • non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
  • Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB*
    • 32 bit PCs cannot address a full 4.0 GB of memory.
You want to get the same type (DDR2), and the same speed (PC2-4200) as what's already in the computer. (You can use the higher-speed PC2-5300 memory, but don't go below the 4200.)

Suitable memory is available from many sources, not just HP/Compaq. Here's a typical part from Tiger Direct, one of the places I buy from. You might find memory locally is you're near a big-box retailer like Best Buy or have computer shops around. I'd suggest buying two more 1024MB (1 GB) modules. This would give your computer 3GB, which is plenty for typical users.

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!

COMPAQ presario SR1430NX ... when i plug the ethenet cable in back of computer I get no network lights

There could be a couple of reasons for this.

Swap the ends of the cable and attempt to connect.
Please use a known good cable.

Please ensure that the network adapter is properly installed.
For checking this, please go to the device manager and see if you have any yellow exclamation marks on the same.

In case this does not help you, please reply with the Operating System name, Router/Switch model name.

If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
Thank you.

Have hp compaq d530 problems turning on. Wont boot, showing 1 green flash when power button is depressed & thats it!,,,,, ASSISTANCE!!!!!!!

That is most likely a bad power supply but it could also be a bad mainboard. You can find replacement power supplies for under $50 so try that first.

Havin trouble trying to get my computer to reconizie my new hard drive

If you just installed your new hard drive, it is very likely that is not formatted.
  1. Right-click on "My Computer"
  2. choose "Manage"
  3. click on the "+" sigh next to "Storage" if necessary to expand the tree.
  4. click on "Disk Management"
  5. In the lower part of the window you can see all your drives, starting with "Disk0", your C: drive.
  6. You might see another disk (probably Disk1 if you have 2 disks in total) with the description "Unallocated". (See the picture)

If there are any existing partitions on the drive, you will have to delete them before you can format the drive. If the drive is new, there won't be any and you can go right ahead and format it.
  1. Right-click on the box with the description "Unallocated and select “New Partition...” The New Partition Wizard will come up.”
  2. Confirm all default values in the partition wizard.
  3. Choose “NTFS” as file format.
  4. In the “Volume label” field enter whatever name you want, but avoid using spaces.
  5. I personally leave the “Perform a quick format” box unchecked, so I know the drive was formatted properly.
  6. The wizard will now format the drive. On large drives this may take quite a while (1TB will take a couple of hours!).
  7. Do not close the “Computer Management” window until the wizard is finished.
  8. It is done when the word under the size of the drive changes from “Formatting” to “Healthy” and the name you chose for the new drive is displayed.
  9. Now yo can go ahead and use your newly formatted drive.
If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment. Also, if your drive was already formatted, come cak here and let me know more details about your problem.- I'm happy to help.

A new motherboard for a old compaq presario 5240

You will need a new case and a new power supply. I would replace the memory as well.

Compaq had a tendency to make cases to only fit their boards back then. Youre better off building a new unit and starting over again.
