first of all virtual memory is when you doesn't have enough ram and the system is using the the ammount of harddrive space assigned for memory because it's a harddrive you would probably experience sluggish. and
depends if it compatibles, and if your compaq ram is slower then all your memory will be down clocked translate to slower speed.

well, what u can do is increase ur virtual memory, but its just better to get ram. k this is what u do. on BOTH computers. go too google.com type in CPU-Z and tell us what it says for ram, it will be something like

DDR (insert number here) or
PC (insert number here)
and tell us.
