Up grading a Compaq Notebook

  gill 11:57 04 May 2009

Hi I have a compaq Presario 900n Notebook.Other details are:- Series PP2140.(P908 EA.)
It is very slow and as it only has 250 mb of Ram I thought an upgrade might help.
I believe it will only acept a max of 1 Gig.
Has this notebook got more than one slot and if so, how do I access the second slot.
Also, is there any site that I can download a manual? Many thanks for your help.

Download for the user manual - it is a compressed file (.rar), so you'll need to unzip it

Hi Sea Urchin,Thanks for your reply. I have downloaded this file but when I try to open it it says" Data error in Compaq Presario 900 Series pdf File is Broken".
Am I doing something wrong? Gill

No you're not - it does appear to be a corrupted file

OK - it's a multipart download - 4 parts in all, of which all have to be downloaded before unzipping. On the link I gave you you will notice under File Information it says Multipart and 4 parts (confusingly numbered 0,1,2 and 3)

Click each of these in turn, and download to the desktop - then hopefully they will all unzip correctly.

I'm just going to try it now, and will report back.

OK that works - download all four as above to the desktop (for easy access) then unzip the first one - the whole manual will unzip.

Quite a performance for 187 pages :@)

I think you're right - the max RAM would be 1GB

Hi Sea Urchin,Sorry for the delay. Only just got back to my computer.I have done as you say an eureka! I have a manual. Many thanks my friend. you are a star.Gill

Glad it worked OK for you as well - it seems quite a good manual, although it's the first time I've known one to come in four parts!!!
