Just had same problem. Found a solution: I have an old HP Compaq dc5000MT. It has 4 RAM slots Here's what DIDN'T work: 1gb + 1gb + 512mb + 512mb 1gb + 512mb + 512mb + 1gb 512mb + 1gb + 1gb + 512mb Here's what DID work: 1gb + 512mb + 1gb + 512mb I'm sure that: 512mb + 1gb + 512mb + 1gb would probably work as well. From my guess they're are 2 "channels" (slots 1&2 are channel 1, slots 3&4 are channel 2) and you have to keep the amount of RAM balanced on both slots and in the same order. Another thing to note with the old XP OS. IT ONLY WORKS WITH 3GB or RAM. MAX. So 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 (4gb) WILL NOT WORK... PERIOD for XP. Vista, 7, 8 etc. allows you to use a ton more ram + readyboost. They need all the help they can get though since they are major resource hogs.
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.
