Adding Memory to HP Pavilion N5160

I'm upgrading a 10 year old laptop for my young neice and nephew to use. It's a hand me down from their mother. It had Millenium Me installed which I have already upgraded to Windows XP SP3. The system is barely running due to low memory. The spec's according to the HP support site, say maximum "supported' memory is 256Meg. It has a single 128mb (144 pin PC100) memory module and I have already ordered another one online that I will use to increase to 256. My question is...what are the chances that this system might work with larger PC100 memory modules? (for instance (2 x 512meg) even though the specs say 256 meg maximum. I would hate to buy the additional memory and it not work.

Thanks in advance,
Mike

    Sorry, I made an error on the HP Model Number.

    It's a HP Pavilion Model N5190 (not 5160). Thanks

The motherboard will only recognize 256 module. If you go to crucial.com and run the memory test, it will tell you the maximum memory the motherboard will support. So buyin a higher memory stick is wasting your money since it will not support it.

I bought my wife an hp Pavilion dv7 for Christmas a little over a year ago. Recently the power cable started to crack right where the cable meets the recepticle that plugs into the laptop. I used some...


try reseating the memory cards in the notebook if the lights come on but no display usually memory cards have been knocked loose.
that is one defect that they have is memory cards come loose if the laptop has been jarred from being in a car getting bounced around in the seat etc.
the memory cards control a portion of the video and if the memory cards lose connection you loose video.
