Question by Brianna’s Mommy: I installed ram into my Compaq Presario Desktop Computer?
But when I go back to see how much ram is on the computer it hasnt changed. What do I do?

Is it being recognised in bios? If it is make sure you choose to save settings when exiting the bios otherwise windows may not report the added ram when you look in system information.

What type of ram did you buy and what is the model of the presario?
