Zd8000 notebook x600 ATI 128MB or 256MB upgrade

Hi, Thanks for your involvement.
The full thru that the systemboard came from there:
I have to replace my current 374709-001board because the video was defect.
The refurbeshed replacement board have a official stick 374711-001 on it so should be 256MB video RAM. My bios say 128MB.
I am furthere interrested, how to get the BIOS an how to install.
My BIOS version is HP F22 2/23/2005
SM BIOS: 2.31
I've seen that on the net people talking from version F33-34.
Some additional information.
After installation I've got a booting error message: 104 wireless communication board not reqognized. Please remove it and reboote system again. I did and it is worked but I will be happier if my WLAN will works too. I thing should be BIOS problem too. What do you think?

    I am Laszlo back. Thanks for the help.

    I took out the HD and booted up the BIOS with the same result. That is mean the 128MB detected before read anything from the HD. Farther I think the system board contain only 128MB video RAM in both version of motherboards and drives adding 128MB from the main RAM in the second case.

    How can I approve my assumption? HP sent a survey without any support and even the survey page is lockup. It is make me upset.

    Thanks for any ideas.

    Can someone verify that the HP zd8000 system board 374711-001 use 8 Samsung on board chips differnt from the K4D263238G-GC?

    Those make 128MB video memory on board but the board should have 256MB.

    Can somone verify that his BIOS detect 256MB video on board?

Is a ATI Mobility Radeon X700 128MB Laptop Video Card or a ATI Radeon X600 SE 128MB compatible with a HP Pavilion ze4300.

Hope I helped,

Can u see the different of system board 374709-001 vs 374711-001

HP probably isnt lying to you. the video chip they replaced, 374709-001, was 128 Mb chip, your new one is 256 Mb. When HP installed the new one, the most likely failed to update / reinstall the bios. If the bios was not updated, the computer would not recognize the extra 128 Mb of graphics, as graphics chips are not plug and play.
If you provide me the model number of the computer i can link instructions on flashing the bios; However, i would call HP and see what they can do.

HP Pavilion zd8000 Upgrades

i have the same laptop. though your video card is independent, it is still integrated into the system and cannot be upgraded, your only be there is to go to the Radeon website and download the latest drivers for it.(it helps) As for your Ram, you can only upgrade to 2 mb of ddr2.(on mine it made a noticable difference) As far as the hd goes i believe sky is the limit, i went from 100 gb to 160 no problem

ATI Mobility Radeon X600 continuing problem

Hi eltrury,
Here is a link to explain Modding.
You're notebook share's you're main system memory with you're onboard (Video card built into you're notebook's main board).
If you're notebook has a total amount of system memory of 512MB & you're video card is using 128MB to function. Than you're notebook will only have 128MB to run. (And that is not enough for a Windows XP system to function. It will run! Like a dog with two broken legs. You're video card is an ATI. That said, ATI comes out with newer versions of its software drivers quiet often. So upgrading you're software can be preformed once a month, if you like. ATI's catalyst control center is part of the ATI's software. CCC is a section of software where you can adjust a range of settings to you're preference. Like add more red color to your monitor. Adjust you're display screen. It's a long list. There is a Help button within CCC.
Most people never need to enter CCC. It's for people who know what to adjust & why. CCC's greatest function allows people to run dual monitors. CCC can detect when two monitors are connected to the video card & the user can adjust the color for each display separately. CCC is also acts like a software manager. It helps keep the video running stable. For those who do not have an abundence of hard drive space you can elect not to install CCC & just download the driver software.
This next link will take you to ATI's web site.
Here you need to click on three choices. In the first window you would click on you're operating system. EX: Windows XP home or pro. Than you would click on ATI Mobility Radeon. Than click on, Mobility Radeon X600. Lastly, click on the GO button.
Suggest you run the Installation Verification Software on the site. When it finishes the ATI software should start the download.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
