I attempted to upgrade the RAM on my HP Pavilion zv5000. (the one under the keyboard) when I tried to turn it on, there is just a blank screen. Any idea what the problem is? The laptop was installed...


According to the link below you can do the upgrade. If is not working, make sure you have the memory seated correctly, then mix and match the memory and switch slots to find the problem memory. It may be incompatible with either the motherboard or the other memory sticks, or just a bad stick.

Question about upgrading...


Hi,

Honestly In the long run you will be better off buying a cheap new laptop.

Dual core or similiar.

But lets see.
You can upgrade the cpu, memory and the hard drive.

The laptop supports Maximum of 72 MB of Ram by installing a matched pair of 32-mb memory modules in the memory upgrade sockets on the main board. Theres 8 MB build into the motherboard so you will have total of 72MB with 8MB on the board and 64 in the slots. Thats the maximum memory you can have. You could try a biger module at your own risk. (may not work)

the NeoMagic 2093 video controller is integrated and can't be changed.

What is the model of your LM? for example Lm M166ST
You should be able to upgrade to 166MHZ or more.

I don't know how big of a drive the computer supports, but Id guess atleast double? possibly more, I don't know whats the bigest size supported.

Cant start windows after RAM upgrade


Download or get a memory test utility that boots from some device (a floppy, flash drive or CD-ROM) that your PC can read. Run that test to confirm the installed memory is good/compatible. Loose memory modules and PC boards can be zapped just by touching the connector pins while you handle them. During removal or installation you have to frequently touch the machine's frame or wear an ESD strap before handling the module, to prevent this.

Windows xp wont reload


This happens so much with upgrades! We think we are making our pc's better, and then find it doesn't like it. I am assuming you completely uninstalled millenium, then tried to load xp? If you did not, the registry still has parts of millenium on it, and is asking for this. You need to completely uninstall millenium first. You need to obtain mill copy, and select uninstall, then when done, put in your new xp disk and try again. Lilacgerry xxx

Memory upgrade


Herb,

when your system logs on, press F2 to go to set up.

under drives, you'll need to re enable each of your DVD's

happens when memory is changed, since that's where bios resides anywhoo.
