Q: Hello i got a problem i am confused . I have a Compaq Presario running an Intel Celeron 2.66Ghz Processor and 256MB PC-3200 DDR RAM. I am not sure which model of motherboard. I will look it up and get back to you on that one.


I purchased 2GB of DDR PC-2700 RAM (2x1GB) after consulting the internet as to what RAM was inside. I was younger and afraid to open the PC which I do frequently now! When I actually removed the old RAM I found that it was in fact PC-3200. Would this make any difference?


When I put the RAM in the PC fails to boot the OS. It doesn't matter which as I have tried it with both Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux.

When I ran the PC in Safe Mode and looked to see how much RAM was being seen, it said something around 32MB, which I suppose would explain why the OS fails to start. Do you have any idea what could be causing this and if buying PC-3200 memory would solve my problem?


A: DDR memory PC - 2700 memory is big different technically of the DDR-3200 memory,
 and some notebook computers does not support  the technology of the DDR-2700 ,but working fine with DDR-3200 memory, so the best approach is:

1. Please to identify that your mobile computer's BIOS can be recognize the maximum memory capacity is 1GB RAM or 2GB RAM?

2. make sure your laptop BIOS can be recognize 2GB RAM , please returned the DDR-2700 memory to exchange to real memory of the DDR-3200 back. Thanks.
