hi, welcome to all of u, I am a new member.
Could u guide me to solve the following two troubles of my old compaq presario desktop PC.
1.)I just want to know whether the memory of my compaq presario 6125 desk top PC can be upgraded with available memory modules in market now.
The specs: Pentium 4, 1.7 GHz, 256 MB RAM, L1/L2 cache 256 KB(i am not sure), 40 GB HDD. OS is XP pro SP2.
it shows DDR type but I do not know the exact details of its memory as no where in the manual, or in the system it is mentioned. It was purchased in 2002 Oct.
just now I purchased a Transcend DDR 400 DIMM of 512 MB, will it be compatible , if so how many such modules should I use to make the memory to 1 GB.
2)my samsung CDRW drive is not sensing any media neither its drive letter is displayed in Mycomputer in XP Pro SP2.It's properties indicates "the device is working perfectly".
Could it be because of its lens has gone!If so can it be repaired or should I go for a DVD RW(IDE) drive as in market only DVD RW available and not CD RW drive.
