Question about HP Presario SR1710NX (CPQSR1710NXEL426AA) PC Desktop
I have 4 x 1 gig Kingston KVR400AK2/1GR and the computer will only recognize it as 512 meg.
Is the Memory PC-3200? Let me get this correct, you have installed 4 1 GB's of PC-3200 Memory in 4 DIMM slots. If you shut down, unplug, check/reseat memory mods, plug in ,reboot, Open BIOS, Check Memory installed, what does it say? I looked at the specs for KVR400AK2/1GR it's saying it's 2x512mb's? I'm confused? Is this it? http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=84387&site=cp Download this little Freeware program, it will help: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=84387&site=cp

SOURCE: sdram capacity
its that 512 mb total capacity for your computer memory?? if so read this:
To find the total amount of RAM that can be added , subtract the amount of RAM currently in the computer from the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold. For example, a computer has 256 MB of RAM. If the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold is 512 MB, then 256 MB is the amount of RAM that can be added. this info from the HP website , to find out more , go to http://www.hp.com/support , enter the model number , and look for more information about your computer specs, hope this helps , please rate & thanks AJ

SOURCE: Memory upgrade didn't work
sound like either the memory is incorrect or u may need to load the default settings in the BIOS
enter the BIOS / setup screen for the motherboard and see if the system shows the 2 gig installed
see the adding memory guide below and it will explain everything

Go to crucial.com and have them analyze your computer. They will tell you you can use 2gb, no matter what HP says, and it does work. I just went through the same thing. Saved me from buying a new computer because 1gb wasn't cutting it and I originally thought that was the max for a a520n. Not true. I do suggest going to HP and getting the Bios update from 2005 if you haven't already done that. My a250n runs great with 2gb ram, replacement 500 watt power supply, GeForce 6600gt GPU, and Audigy SE sound card. With optimized paging file and routine disk cleanup this thing still runs well enough to have a few years left in the old girl untill every new program requires dual or quad core 64bit technology and Windows 7 or above.

HP Support > Pavilion a1600n desktop computer > Motherboard Specifications,
Scroll down the page to the illustration, and photo of the Pavilion a1600n motherboard.
On the motherboard illustration where it states DDR2 XMM1 (64 bit ,240-pin module), and DDR2 XMM2 (64 bit ,240-pin module), is where the two 1GB ram memory modules go.
On the motherboard photo, it is the two Blue in color ram memory slots.
The 512MB ram memory modules go into the Black ram memory slots.
[DDR2 XMM3, and DDR2 XMM4]
The Blue ram memory slots are one Channel. (Channel 1)
The Black ram memory slots are the second Channel.
You want to keep LIKE ram memory modules in the same Channel.
If you are having problems with the PNY ram memory modules, tell me what the manufacturer code is on them.
(Or if you bought them off of a website, see if you can copy and paste the link in a Comment. Believe upper right of your page.
FixYa is constantly undergoing changes to improve the website, is why I indicate that)
You need low density, unbuffered ram memory, DDR2 Sdram ram memory.
[DDR2 at either 533MegaHertz, or you can also use DDR2 at 667MHz.
PC2-4200 and PC2-5300 respectively ]
Don't try out any high performance ram memory is my recommendation, because the Voltage required by the ram memory, may not meet the factory default voltages that are preset in your computer.
[Factory Voltage default setting for ram memory for your motherboard, is set at 1.8 Volts.
Some high performance DDR2 ram memory requires 2.0 Volts, 2.1 Volts, or even higher ]
