needing a direct online purchase link for 2GB of RAM for a Compaq Presario V5000 Laptop
Posted on 2011-10-23
I have a friend's laptop which currently has 1GB of RAM. It has 2 memory slots with 512MB of RAM for each memory slot, thus, making 1GB of RAM. If I am not mistaken, 128MB of this system RAM is reserved or shadowed for the onboard video RAM. From an earlier closed post, I did learn that the RAM upgrading potential of this laptop is 2GB. As I understand what will need to be done when maxing out the RAM, the 2, 512MB RAM modules will need to be replaced with 2, 1GB RAM modules. Here is a more condensed statistical overview of the technical specs of this laptop which should prove fruitful in locating the correct RAM for this laptop.
Memory Type: DDR SODIMM 200pin
Memory Speed: PC2700
Chipset: ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M
Standard Memory: 256MB Removable
Memory Slot(s): 2
Max. Memory Per System: 2048MB (2GB)
Max. Memory Per Slot: 1024MB (1GB)

In closing, any information regarding a direct online purchase link for 2, 1GB RAM modules for this laptop will be greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing back from everyone regarding this post.
