Memory Upgrade for
HewlettPackard Pavilion ze4910us Laptop, the HewlettPackard Pavilion
ze4910us Laptop takes the PC2100/2700 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and
comes installed with 512 MB (removable) of
Memory. You can upgrade your HewlettPackard Pavilion
ze4910us Laptop to up to a maximum of
1.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install
Memory, already with 512 MB (removable) standard Memory
installed. For best Laptop performance use the maximum amount of allowed
Memory per slot for your Laptop.
Choose the following Memory Upgrade for HewlettPackard Pavilion ze4910us Laptop.
That motherboard was made for PC2100 DDR266. A PC3200 DIMM *SHOULD* be backward compatible. Depending on the density of the PC3200 memory you might have problems. If you have not bought the memory yet I would go with the PC2100 for sure since the PC3200 will give you no speed gains at all and will be running at PC2100 speeds anyway.
If you already have the PC3200 memory then I would say just give it a shot. The worse case scenario is your machine will not boot up with the higher speed ram installed. Assuming you take all the normal hardware upgrade care and do not physically break anything you can test this memory with no harm to your motherboard.
Hi there. The best memory for that motherboard is DDR SDRAM, the supported ram speed is 266 MHz
200 MHz(maximum 2BG, 1BG in each slot) Kingston or corsair memory running at 266MHz is my recommendation to you. Try not to buy used memory as it may not work!!
So it seems you got the DDR / DDR2 side of the equation correct, but unknown to most, there is 'low' and 'high' density memory.
The density of memory refers to the number of chips used to make the total amount of memory that your memory stick contains. e.g. High density memory has few, large capacity chips to make up the 1024MB of memory on the stick, whereas low density memory uses many, small capacity chips to make up the same 1024MB total on the stick.
Typically, if it is a low / high density conflict, it is the 'low density' sticks only that will boot.
Me, I purchase Kingston memory when I'm unsure what the motherboard will be, and it has never failed to work.
