Question about HP PC Laptops

1 Answer

Laptop won't start up

I removed the 256 memory that was installed as standard in the HP ze4400 pavilion laptop to see how I could increase it to make it faster.
But when I put it back in it wouldn't start up. Is there something I should or should not have done when reinstalling it.

I get the normal Windows screen at start up with the green squares moving across and then just a black blank screen.

Need a bios password for a hp pavilion ze4400


You will have to reset your BIOS password. To reset the BIOS read the information from this link

In case of your HP laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

How much the memory on compaq v3000z can be increased and what type ddr, ddr2 or ddr3? currently it has 256.


Compaq Presario V V3000 Specification Memory Type: DDR2 SODIMM 200pin DDR SODIMM:
DDR, double data rate is a type of SDRAM in which data is sent on both the rising and falling edges of clock cycles in a data burst. It is usually referred to as DDR as opposed to DDR SDRAM.
SODIMM, small outline dual inline memory module. Smaller and thinner than standard DIMMs, SODIMMs are typically used in laptop computers.
Memory Speed: PC2-4200, PC2-5300 Chipset: Intel 945GM Chipset :
A group of chips that together make up a complete computer processing unit, usually on one circuit board (the motherboard). It may include the main central processor, graphics processors, secondary cache memory, and input-output controllers. Memory is one component controlled by the chipset. Standard Memory: 512MB Removable Memory Slot(s): 2 Max. Memory Per System: 2048MB (2GB) Max. Memory Per Slot: 2048MB (2GB) Dual Channel Memory Support: Supported Dual Channel :
A development in motherboard and chipset design that allows for increased bandwidth transfer when using two or more memory modules in separate transfer channels. These separate channels allow each module access to the memory controller, increasing throughput bandwidth. It is a good idea to use matched pairs of modules to ensure the best compatibility for dual channel operation. Tri-Channel Memory Support: Not Support Tri-Channel :
A development in motherboard and chipset design that allows for increased bandwidth transfer when using three or more memory modules in separate transfer channels. These separate channels allow each module access to the memory controller, increasing throughput bandwidth. It is a good idea to use matched three modules to ensure the best compatibility for tri-channel operation. Install Memory in Pairs: Not Required Install in Pairs :
Memory modules must be installed in pairs of matched memory size. This means that if you purchased your computer with 128 MB of memory installed and you want to add another 512 MB of memory, you must remove the two continuity modules and replace them with two 256-MB memory modules.

I have an HP Pavilion Laptop computer Model ze4400 when you push the power on all the lights come on and drives and fan power up then it turns itself off then back on then off over and over with no...


This sounds like a processor or system board failure. Most likely it is the processor. If the unit is still under manufacturer warranty contact them for replacement.

I have a Satellite 2405-S221 and I was wondering if the max memory i can install is 512K, is there a way to update the bios, or ANYTHING to increase that amount to at least 1 gig??


Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221 Laptop takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with 256 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221 Laptop to up to a maximum of 512 MB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 256 MB (removable) standard Memory installed.

In short.... yeah, 512k is the max.

Doesn't appear to a bios limitation. It is a hardware issue that is limiting the amount.

Adding Memory to HP Pavilion N5160


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.

Hp Pavillion laptop freezes when I install secondary memory


You may not put all together the 256 and 512, the system encountered error when two memory are not equal size and not equal brand.

Either you select 2 units 256 memory or either 2 units 512. or use only 1 unit 512 memory so that no freezes will happen.
