My compaq dx2450 wont register ram and its only about 8 months old i bought direct from hp but they wont help i really need to upgrade my ram


try adding one ram stick upgrade at a time, while leaving one original in the system till it boots and recognises the increase. repeat until finished adding all the new ram. if these measures dont work, its possible you have purchased ram that is not matching to the upgradable standards of your board. its important when adding ram to insure you match the ram speed with your replacements upgrade.

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...

Hp Compaq dx2200 MT RAM Problems


Firstly, you have to know that you can upgrade RAM as Double or Half of your pre-installed RAM. For example, like your pre-installed RAM is 256 MB, you can only upgrade RAM of capacity 128 MB or 512 MB. Secondly, check your previous installed RAM's speed that is shown in Ghz. You can only upgrade RAM to its similar speed, otherwise you get slow performance of PC.

I want to upgrade the standard 512mb RAM to 2GB. once installed do I just restart the computer or do I need to do something to allow the computer to recognize the new RAM?


Hi,

You should be fine to just turn the computer on straight away as soon as you have installed your new RAM. The computer will recognize the new upgrade straight away provided you have got memory that is compatible with the desktop computer.

When you upgrade the RAM take the old RAM out and make sure your new RAM runs at the same speed as your old RAM.

From what i can remember the maximum RAM speed that an HP pavilion supports is 400MHz although it could well be 333MHz.

The RAM that's installed in the desktop at this moment in time will have the speed on it so you check with that.


Regards.

What kind DDr memeory should i look for on my old P3 Direct desktop?


It depends on how old it is. it is has 256 mb in each slot then it probably could upgrade to 512 mb in each slot, if it has 512mb in each slot it probably could upgrade to a gig. if it only has SD ram in it though, you can't upgrade to DDR.

I have an asus P5N32-e SLI motherboard. I want to upgrade the memory. Will Patriot PC2 9600 (1200mhz) be suitable.


ooh.. I have a 50/50 shot at getting this right without reading the manual or going onto ASUS' website and looking it up!

I'll say.... no? DDR2 memory sounds quite new, and my board only just supports 1066Mhz RAM. Your mainboard sounds a bit old.

Let me know if i'm right!

Seriously though, I went to www.asus.com, then typed your motherboard in, and then clicked on it.
http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=397&l4=0&model=1459&modelmenu=1

Here is what it has to say:
- Dual-channel DDR2 800/667/533
I win!

Memory Upgrade and Computer will not boot


You need to do a BIOS Upgrade. First get the name of your BIOS when the computer boots up. Then go to the we site and find your BIOS brand and get a version update or upgrade.

Be VERY careful and follow the directons to the letter.

Let me know if this helps.
