Here is the spec of momory on your MoBo

  • Dual channel memory architecture
  • Four 240-pin DDR2 DIMM sockets
  • Supports PC2 3200 (400 MHz), PC 4200 (533 MHz) and PC2 5300 (667 MHz) DDR2 DIMMs
  • non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
  • Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB*

    Take out one of your memosticks, read on it what it says, the buy exact as the one you have.

    If it is an 3200, and you want to put in 4200, then you have to change the ones you have no. You wont be ables to use the speed of 4200 if you haveng 3200 on the MoBo. Your Mobo will atumatic swich the speed of the 4200 down to 3200, and you may have conflicts.
    Always use the same type of memory!

    Here is some more spec of your momo:

    Best performance is when two identicle ram modules are installed, one for each channel,,unless you are a gamer you probablly will never see the difference. On most boards it is one and three, or two and four. Being tthat you are installing 3 modules, it won't make a difference. It will still be faster with two gigs on one channel and one on the other, than if you just put the one in each channel. you should be good to go by just filling any two slots, peace, Gym

    Hewlett Packard EliteBook 2530p Memory Upgrade


    The 666 in the part number indicates a 666 MHz memory stick. In the spec of the HP 2530 P, it needs DDR2 800 Mhz memory. Possible that the memory is not compatible.

    Hello, Jim.

    Dell's official position is that the maximum memory for this PC is 1 GB. But, it may be able to support 2 GB, per Intel's specs.

    But, to answer your question - yes - you can increase your memory amount to 1 GB. Since the system has 2 memory slots, you could conceivably have (2) 512KB modules (total 1 GB). If your system already has 1 module of 512 KB, you could add another. Just be certain it's the same type and speed.

    Or, you could have a 1 GB module.

    I don't think that your computer's life is in jeopardy, but additional memory always helps the speed of your computer.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi! How can I increase the RAM on my Aspire T310? Can I do it myself? Thanks.


    Yes, you can definitely do this yourself. Upgrading RAM is one thing that repair places make much money; however, it takes a matter of seconds to complete.

    Your Acer Aspire T310 has two memory slots on the motherboard. Each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB each for a total of 2GB RAM. You should see a great improvement in performance.

    To save on a long tutorial, I have included a video link. The type of RAM you need can be found at the following link. Kingston is another manufacturer you could check into also.

    Please remember to unplug all cords from your computer and be in a static free environment before upgrading your memory. Good Luck!

    What kind of memory module can i add to increase my memory for a hp pavilion a305w. when I am playing games online it says virtual memory low..


    Virtual Memory (or Paging File) is controlled on your computer and is actually space on your hard drive. In windows XP, go to START, right click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware Tab, select Settings under Performance. In the Advanced Tab, under Virtual Memory, select Change. Set the Paging File Size to "System Managed". Click Set>OK>OK>OK.

    This error should go away now, unless your hard drive is getting full. Check to make sure that you have at least 25% free space on the hard drive where the Paging File is set up.

    Did this solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.

    Pc beeps five times when swtched on


    PC beeps are usually memory-related problems. make sure you are using the right memory for your computer. the specs should be a DDR2 DIMM 240 pin PC2-3200. what specs do you have?
    also do you have two 1G memory sticks or just one 2G memory stick? it may be that your computer doesn't accept a 2G memory stick but rather 1G memory sticks. good luck.
