Compaq Pentium III memory capacity

I have Compaq Pentium III with 384 MB RAM, I need to make it 1GB of RAM, but I am not sure if this computer can support 1GB RAM.
Do you have any idea?

5 Solutions
Hi, you should have 2 memory slots capable of upgrading your current stick X2
Check the manual or your mainboard specs, could you post the exact model of your Compaq and then we can check.
Here's one example but need your specific model

I have another Pentium 4, that I need to see if it can hold 1GB Ram Stick.
Yes, it will, buy 2 512 mb sticks
Use the memory advisor tool from Crucial. You will need the pertinant model numbers in order to get the info.

You should be aware that it isn't just the size of the ram but that there are other specifications that need to be looked at such as module density , ECC,  buffered and unbuffered. Clock speeds may also be an issue but less likely.

first, you need to check the mobo manual, to see what Ram it supports and how much. it depends on the motherboard . if you do not know, post the mobo or pc model.
