Hey guys,

Ive got 6-7 year old Presario M2000 lappy that's running 1GB of RAM on it atm. I used a piece of software to test the max RAM that can be used on the laptop and it said 2GB.

Now when i read this (And i checked out a few other sites too):

512MB, 200-pin SODIMM, DDR PC2700 upgrades for HP - Compaq Presario M2000 Series Laptop/Notebook, CT526869 from Crucial.com

It says that the max RAM that this laptop can handle is 512MB per slot (which is what i have right now).

Does this mean i can't upgrade to 1GB per slot in order to have 2GB on this laptop?? :confused: If so was the software wrong?

Thanks for any help..

Cheers

Re: Compaq Presario RAM upgrade Question

Run the Crucial System Scanner on the computer. This should tell you the RAM type and how much RAM the motherboard will support. This should confirm that this motherboard will only support 1X 512 MB chip per slot for a total of 1GB

I think this answers my question then - can't do any memory upgrade on it :sad:

Re: Compaq Presario RAM upgrade Question

6 or 7 years ago, 1 GB was more then enough RAM to run this computer.
