Look at the bottom of the laptop.
With a screwdriver, open one of the "doors" that you see.
You may find an "empty" slot, where more RAM can be inserted.

However, finding RAM that will be "compatible" with your Compaq is not trivial -- if you don't understand "HOW" to do this, *STOP* and take your computer to a computer-store, and let them investigate, and sell you the correct RAM, and will install the RAM, and ensure that it works.

How to do jumper setting on RAM upgrade from 2 x 256 MB to 2 x 512 MB.


Good day,

Theres no need to jumper anything in upgrading your Ram, Just remove the 256 mb rams and replace it with your 512mb ram. Then try turning your PC on.

Compaq Armada 1590DT, upgrade the RAM


I currently have three Armada's. I put XP on one - ran like kukua until I upped the memory. I think I put in a gig or 2. I found mine at www.4allmemory.com though this is not the only place in the world to get it. I put a new battery in the same computer. So, now I'm invested about $250.00 over the original investment. Frankly, I am disappointed when comparing the Armada to my new Acer Aspire 1. Pound for pound, the Acer is the better investment.

Yet... If you can live with W98, Second Ed. (which is really a better option for this particular computer), the Armada will travel, communicate, browse, e-mail, write notes and letters with the best of them. It is also very classy!

I have not had the machine open. I seem to recall that the processor can be changed ... but to what point? You will not get to anything current except for the cost! I also changed the keyboard on the Armada I use from time to time. I originally had 6 Armada's.

You may want to visit www.pcpitstop.com and have your Armada scanned for free. They will have suggestions for upgradability and they will recommend sources for you to consider.

I hope my experience is of come value to you as you contemplate your upgrade.

Added more ram but it's not working Compaq E500


what did you mean not working ?? didnt see the new Ram memory ?/ or didnt boot at all ....anyway ...when adding new ram memory ..first thing you do is to remove the Bios battery for to let bios on defaults and let it be able to read the new added unit ....second ...be sure the new added ram is compatible and in the same frequency ,then remove the battery like I said and in the last ...reinstall the operating system ....always look at the boot to see if the ram memory that is displayed is the same value with the one you know that actually is installed on the slots...it should work if this was just an option to make it faster ...and not a wild guess cause it use to have issues and didnt boot before...

you could only upgrade the processor and RAM in this condition i.e.

you can only change your an upgraded p-III processor like 1.0 GHz, 1.1 GHz or 1.3GHz and
upgrade the RAM by changing to 256 in each slot.

that is all what u can do with ur pc
