The Designjet 500 did not have a direct memory upgrade slot. You will have to purchase a HPGL2 (formatter) card first. This then has a memory slot on it for further upgrades. The plotter had 32Mb memory on board, the card another 32Mb and then you can upgrade by a further 64Mb (waste of money) or the best is 128Mb. This is then added to your original Ram giving you approx 164Mb which is then normally more than enough. The HPGL2 (formatter) card is sold by any HP supplier on order only. Part number is C7772A. Standing in front of the plotter its located in the left side at the back. Look behind the left cover and you will see a small cover in a sort of L shape near where the roll holder slots in, thats it, slip the small cover open (you will see an arrow on it showing how to open it), look if there are any additional cards in the machine, if not it means you still need to buy the card, otherwise you will simply need the RAM.

Help Finding The Best CPU For P4SD-VX Motherboard.


Brilliant, I commend you! I've posted using the simple CPU-Z program to several people on here, and they just don't seem to get it!

Sony doesn't release detailed info on their motherboards, for the most part. Just the usual generic info.

2.6 Volts?
Open CPU-Z again. CPU tab.
Let's see if you have this processor.
Name: Pentium 4 HT 2.6C
Code Name: Northwood
Package: Socket 478
Technology: 130nm
Core Speed: 2600.0MHz (Fluctuates when the computer is running)
Multiplier: 13X (Fluctuates when the computer is running. When the Core Speed fluctuates enough, the multiplier changes to match)

Bus Speed: 200.0MHz
Rated FSB: 800.0MHz
Voltage: 1.475 to 1.525 V (Fluctuates)

Click on the Mainboard tab.
Is the motherboard chipset Intel 865PE?
[Chipset: Intel i865PE
Southbridge: ICH5 or ICH5R
Motherboard made by Asus?

It may not have an Auto CPU feature in BIOS Setup then. Means you cannot just put any old processor in there. Have you been into your BIOS Setup yet?

SPD stands for Serial Presence Detect. This is used by BIOS to automatically detect what ram memory is being used, and the ram memory timings.

JEDEC was Joint Electron Device Engineering Council/s. Changed to JEDEC Solid State Technology Association.

One of the things they have done is to set standards for Ram Memory.
Voltages used and ram timings.
JEDEC 1 is the ram memory module, in Slot 1 on your computer.
(May state DIMM 1 on the motherboard)
JEDEC 2 is the ram memory module, (Stick) in Slot 2.

JEDEC set the voltage standard for DDR Sdram ram memory, at 2.5 Volts. Your computer has DDR Sdram ram memory in it.
The default voltage setting from the factory will be 2.5 volts for your computer.

After I upgraded RAM from 512 MB to 2 G, my computer can not resume from stand by mode.


1.Do you know what the Maximum TOTAL Amount is for your ram?
2.Do you know what the Maximum Amount is for EACH ram slot?
3.What is the computer manufacturers name, model name, and model number?
(Example: Compaq Presario SR1110NX.
Compaq: Computer manufacturers name
Presario: Model Name
SR1110NX: Model Number

(Not trying to insult your intelligence with Number 3 above)

Reason for asking Number 3?
Let's take an example. Let's say your computer has a Maximum Total Amount for ram memory, that is 2GB.
EACH ram slot's Maximum Amount is 1GB, and you have two ram slots.
If you install a single stick of 2GB ram in Slot 1, chances are it isn't going to work.

If I know what computer you're referring to here, then I can give more of an exacting solution.

MY OKDIATA 4350 CYCLES ON AND OFF NOT COMPLETING RAM CHECK. I WILL OPEN THE LID AND THE UNIT WILL STAY ON WITH ERROR CODE FOR OPEN LID THEN SHUT LID AND PRINTER CYCLES ON AND OFF RUNNING PART WAY THROUGH...


If you have more then one stick of memory in that printer then try putting one stick of memory in one slot then the other and turn on the printer after each stick reinsertion.

If you still get the error message then try the other memory stick and repeat the process to see if the error message still appears, sounds like a memory problem to me.

If you have other memory you can test in there, I would suggest that.

If you try new memory and the printer can cycle thru the RAM test then you know that the ram you have is bad.

If you try new memory but the system is still failing the ram check then you know its a system board problem.

How to install new ram into the 2840


Unplug the machine. On the right side of the machine you will find a cover. Remove the cover and you will find 1 open slot. The machine can take a total of 224MB (96 is built into the machine) leaving 128 available. The memory type is 100pin, 133MHz, SDRAM DIMM.

Simply click the memory into the blank slot and replace the cover.

Once completed, plug the machine back in and print a configuration page. The memory total should be at 224 once you have installed your 128MB.

Good Luck
