View Full Version : Laptop and PC Ram

02-08-2008, 05:49 PM
My wife has a Compaq Presario C300 laptop and has been complaining how slow it is. I have been looking into upgrading the ram.

Currently it has 256mb of PC2-4300. I'm thinking of upgrading to 1gb.

The question I have is, can I upgrade the ram from PC2-4300, to a faster spec ram? How do I tell if I can or not?

The info will probably be on the HP site somewhere.

I take it, its Windows XP??

I wouldn't change the spec.
You could remove that 256 stick & put in 2x 512MB or go to max & put in 2x 1024MB

I thought so too Speedy. I had a look on the HP site, but you know what those sites are like, they make trying to find the info you want as hard as possible. Or so it seems.

Yeah Windows XP.

So I can't upgrade the spec?

I find Ascent's Kingston memory Configurator (http://ascent.co.nz/Kingston.aspx) quite useful for this - seems it can take 533 or 667MHz RAM, up to 2x1GB.
