Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

Presario won't recognize second 256 RAM

\015 The motherboard had 2 slots and there was 1 256 RAM already there. Dropped in a second 256 RAM module. The Control Panel / System still shows just 256mb. Not sure of the Compaq model but it has a 1.1ghz Celeron and a 10gb drive. I bought the memory from MemoryX. The memory module is labelled Compaq 100mhz CL2 ECC. The book did not mention any jumpers were required. The BIOS did not have an option for changing memory configuration.\015

This computer needs \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012System Memory \015\012256MB 133 MHz SyncDRAM, 2 Total DIMM Slots Upgradeable to 512MB (SyncDRAM DIMM required)soo you need to get 133 MHz sticks and that will solve your problem. Regards
Remove the original module, install just the new one and then start your computer. If it doesn't start, the memory you bought is bad. The system boards used in the Compaqs will auto-detect memory, and there are no jumpers or BIOS settings needed.
