Hi there was wondering if you could help me. i Have a HP Compaq D350 and at the moment it has 512mb RAM and i would like to upgrade that to 1GB RAM. I read the manual on your site and i got a brief idea what i might need. So just to make sure please could you you tell me what products i should be looking at or even better if u could list a few products for me. Thanks very much Callum

Firstly, you have to know that you can upgrade RAM as Double or Half of your pre-installed RAM. For example, like your pre-installed RAM is 256 MB, you can only upgrade RAM of capacity 128 MB or 512 MB.
Secondly, check your previous installed RAM's speed that is shown in Ghz. You can only upgrade RAM to its similar speed, otherwise you get slow performance of PC.
You should be fine to just turn the computer on straight away as soon as you have installed your new RAM. The computer will recognize the new upgrade straight away provided you have got memory that is compatible with the desktop computer.
When you upgrade the RAM take the old RAM out and make sure your new RAM runs at the same speed as your old RAM.
From what i can remember the maximum RAM speed that an HP pavilion supports is 400MHz although it could well be 333MHz.
The RAM that's installed in the desktop at this moment in time will have the speed on it so you check with that.
what did you mean not working ?? didnt see the new Ram memory ?/ or didnt boot at all ....anyway ...when adding new ram memory ..first thing you do is to remove the Bios battery for to let bios on defaults and let it be able to read the new added unit ....second ...be sure the new added ram is compatible and in the same frequency ,then remove the battery like I said and in the last ...reinstall the operating system ....always look at the boot to see if the ram memory that is displayed is the same value with the one you know that actually is installed on the slots...it should work if this was just an option to make it faster ...and not a wild guess cause it use to have issues and didnt boot before...
Yes. The HP Compaq nx6120 ships with 256-MB DDR SDRAM, upgradeable to 2048-MB maximum. You can verify yourself at the following link: http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12136_div/12136_div.PDF
Ok, so you just got more Hard disk space, or a new bigger Hard disk. Of course you need t upgrade the Ram memory. This computer supports Ram memory up to 1 Gb with a max frequency of 266Mhz. You probably have 256Mb or 512Mb of Ram Memory. You can go to any computer store and get it upgraded. It shouldn't be expensive. But don't forget :
Use this tyoe of RAM: DDR SDRAM (266 MHz), Upgradeable to 1GB
By the way, even after the upgrade, I advise you to run a Defrag of your Hard Disk and clean all your temp files.
There is a free and easy software to clean all temp and internet temp files: Ccleaner.
