Im trying to upgrade a Presario 700Z's Memory. I'm running XP with 112MB (SDRAM) which crawls. However I can not find a card for it. Crucial says it is not available, and on the HP website I cannot match the product number. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Compaq
Presario 700z
Mobile AMD Duron 4 866 MHz
112 MD (SDRAM)

Download and install Everest run the program and open motherboard in the tree then click on spd this should give you all the info on the type and speed of the ram currently installed in the system.

Can you confirm that this machine is a desktop, not a laptop?
If it is a desktop, then it must be 7000z series, cuz the 700 series use 72 pin simms.

From the everest report, it looks like your system use 168pin DIMMs. It could be that you need ECC dimms though judging by the 72bit width. Does everest say anything about the current module being ECC or parity ram?
