Having problems with your Gateway M305CRV Notebook ?

Memory problem I have a Compaq Presario R4000. I purchased it a few years ago with only 256k memory on the mother board. I figured I could add more later. I then purchased a second 256k module. I installed it and all was fine. I have now decided I need alot more. I purchased a 1GB PC2700 DDR333 from Memory Ten. I installed the module in place of the removable 256k I had The laptop just sits with a blank screen. Compaq says this is the right memory and has no idea why it doesn't work. They had me


Answers :

The memory upgrade FAQ for your PC is located HERE. It says that the maximum amount of memory is 1GB, and from the components list HERE, the largest it can handle with one stick would be 512 of PC2100 memory.
You may have purchased a memory stick that requires more speed than your memory block can give. the speed for this lap top should be around 455-500 MHz on the memory block. if the memory stick requires more than that, its not going to work.
