I have a Compaq presario sr1103wm desktop. It has 2 sticks of 128mb ddr pc2700 ram in each slot. I want to upgrade for the kids and have some spare ddr pc3200 cl3 sticks here. Will they work?

Hey there, It is probably a good idea to go onto the crucial website scanner which will tell you what RAM you can put into the computer.

Just click download the scanner and let it run and when it is finished it will tell you what RAM you can put in the slots on the motherboard. :)

No problem :)
A lot of the time it will change automatically if the BIOS is set to auto detect it but yeah you may have to if it has been set manually to 333Mhz.

Yeah it is technically 200Mhz but it is what is called Double Data Rate (DDR) so it effectively makes it 400MHz. If you have to set it in the BIOS you will need to set it to 200Mhz not 400Mhz (like I thought previously and couldn't get into windows on my machine)
