Good morning  
I don't think we got one drop of rain last night. We are supposed to have another chance today after it gets good and warm.

My Brother CD's came yesterday. I think the CD I already had may be their best, but these are not bad either!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day today. Happy Hump day! I'm off in search of coffee! :-)
Current Mood: groggygroggy

I've got a cup of coffee right beside me. Good Morning Gary. Hope your day is a wonderful day.

Hey, mind if I ask another computer question? Do you know how I can tell what speed the current memory card is that is in my computer? I need to know, but no one around here can seem to tell me.

Good morning Audis! Ask me a computer question anytime and if I know the answer, I'll even tell it to you! :-)

The old memory may have it on it. How old is your computer? I think you said it was a Compaq? If it is, you might be able to go to their web site and look up your model number and find out.

Generally, you can use faster memory in computer and even mix it with slower existing memory as long as the new is not slower than the old and as long as the card is the same, of course. The computer will effectively "see" the faster memory as slower.

Does that answer your question? Are you having problems with adding the new memory or are you ust at the buying stage and need to know what to buy?

I'm having problems with adding the memory. I actually bought the memory card from my Dad. After I got it I started hearing that the new one has to be the same exact speed as the old one or it will burn the mother board up. Finally got my book from Compaq down and all it will tell me is to make sure the new card is just like the old one. I've already been doing some searching on the web with Compaq, but as with everything else with them I am finding that info is elusive too.

Yeah, Compaq is even worse the HP about giving out info. In some ways, HP has good info on their site, but not always.

The size and connectors need to match on the memory, but every one I've talked to have said that the speed can be faster, just shouldn't be slower. You are not using the extra speed as such, but it shouldn't hurt. I'm pretty sure when they said they must be the same, they meant the size and pins on the card.

Good luck! If we were closer, I would be glad to help you in person!
