This are the Supported RAM Speed DDR266/PC2100, PC2700 of your motherboard that you can buy and the max RMA of your motherboard is 2gig so you can upgrade up to 2GIG of ram for much faster performance..

Hope that helps.........

Cant open the tower. i want to add ram. what is the max i can add?


One way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.

This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM you currently have installed and what type it is.

It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity is for that motherboard.

If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to get to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.

Tip

Ram upgrades


This is a tip explaining exactly what you should keep in mind when you want to upgrade your ram modules in your Desktop computer. This will also act as a guide which will give you step by step instructions on how to replace the ram module.

Firstly, before we start buying, we need to be sure that the upgraded ram modules are compatible with your motherboard. Here are a couple of tips you need to keep in mind.



Frequency:

You need to have a look at the frequency of the ram you are using at the moment, as well as the supported frequency of your motherboard. If your motherboard is compatible with a higher ram frequency than your current ram, you can use the frequency which the motherboard stated as maximum for optimum performance. Remember, if yu want to add ram modules, all ram will be downgraded to the ram with the lowest frequency.

Ram model:

You need to know if you are using DDR, DDR1, DDR2, DDR3 ram, some motherboards supports both DDR2 and DDR3. If your motherboard does not support a certain model, it will not fit in the slot on the motherboard, hence, it will be useless. Thus, you need to have a look at the ram model supported by your motherboard.

Latency:

Lastly, you need to have a look at the latency of the ram. The lower the latency, the better the performance.

After you have bought the new upgraded ram modules, we can install them. The following steps will guide you through the installation process.

Step 1

Shut down your computer and unplug all cables. Also, you need to take of the side panel of your computer. Remember to stay grounded at all times when you start working with the hardware of your computer.

Step 2

The second step will be to either take out the current ram modules to upgrade them, or insert the new ram modules into the other available ram slots on the motherboard. Remember to keep yourself grounded at all times while touching the any of the computer hardware. Also, handle the ram at the length end at all times, not at the width end. There will be 2 small hinges on both sides at the base of each ram modules end. You need to pivot the outwards before the ram module can be removed or inserted.

Step 3

The last step will be to screw back the side panel after you have inserted the ram modules(Be sure that you remember to clip back the hinges to ensure that the ram module is places in correctly. Never force the module, line up the ram module with the slot on the motherboard.) Also, plug back all cables into the Computer case, and enjoy your handwork.

What type of ram can I add to my Compaq EVO 510 CMT and what is the max amount?


DDR SDRAM type Ram i.e. DDR1 with 266mhz speed with DDR266/PC2100 compliance. You can simply ask for DDR SDRAM 266Mhz or you can find online with the similar compliance, DDR266/PC2100 Compliance.

I hope you still have the old one which was installed on the system, if so look at the white sticker, it should be labelled there...

RAM compatibility HELP


Yes this pc3200 is hardly compatible, because your motherboard is supportable of DDR 1 type RAM, Hence th PC3200 = 400 MHz, so you can add this ram to your PC, such that the ram which is between 266mhz to 400 MHz is absolutely a DDR1 type . please dont forget to vote for me.

Hi,
Inspect the memory slot carefully. If there are are bent pins in the slot , you can probably align them with a pointed tip. Otherwise the best option would to replace the motherboard. Because after the process RAM is the fastest component in the computer. Out of experience in repairing the motherboards ,i recommend to replace the motherboard.

Thanks Fixya

I would like to upgrade my motherborad and i dont know witch one to buy


Hello

You may have issues with upgrading the motherboard on a Small Form Factor (SFF) desktop computer. The issue is not the space for the motherboard - it is with the proprietary power supply that HP/Compaq use with these small desktop computers.

You will be forced to use the existing power supply which may not work (i.e. have the correct power connectors) for the new motherboard.

Let us know what your goals are for the motherboard upgrade (have more RAM installed, add a SLI video card, faster processor, etc) and we can assist with what is and is not possible.

I have a computer with an intel al440lx motherboard, pentium 2 processor w/mmx, ATI rage 3d graphics card ,creative sound blaster pci sound card, 7GB quantum HDD and 40GB seagate HDD and 1.024 GB SDRAM...


Hi,
This is not a software problem. The problem lies in the motherboard.

The motherboard which you are using is an AL440LX motherboard which supports a maximum of 384MB of RAM. The computer will not recognize any more RAM. In order to use 384MB, you will have to add a 128MB RAM along with the 256MB already present and not any more !!
This is the solution !!

PC turns on then quickly turns off


Does it boot fine if you remove the memory you just added? If it does then try switching the memory that was in it before with the memory you just added. You want to first determine if the ram you bought is bad or incompatible.
