Memory upgrade on HP Media Center m1264n?

I opened the case, but the place where i need to install the memory chips is being blocked by other parts of the inside of the computer.
I have no problem digging around in there so long as somebody gives me clear directions. Please help.

My e-machines will not let me upgread my ddr2 1eb memory


That Machine would take DDR2 PC2-5300 upgrade chips. The max that system could take would be two 1GB sticks for a total of 2GB or 2048MB of memory. Memory is fairly easy to damage with static discharge and is also very easy to not put in all the way. When putting it in, unplug the power from the computer, push and hold the power button for 20-30 seconds to help discharge power from the computer, Line up the pins on the memory and push them into place till the little arms at the sides of the slot pop up and click into place. I'd install one chip at a time, powering the machine up after the first chip to make sure it works, then starting over again. The only time I'd install both chips at the same time would be when installing a memory kit (two or more chips in one package), in which case, install both chips before powering it on.

How to increase System Memory on HP Multi Media 8200 Vista O/S


Read the manual.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HPSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for Manuals and search them on upgrading the memory.
It's a simple process. You remove the power cord, remove the case then look inside and you will see the memory chips and memory slots.
You can check the site below to make sure you get the correct memory and it will tell you how many slots you have and how much memory the system will hold.

I put in a cd in the cd drive and it will not open the tray to take the cd out on my hp media center pc m1264n


There are two ways to open the CD drive door ifthe button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drivetray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive traypops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CDdisc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drivemay be faulty and needs replacing.

Is it going to sleep or is it actually shutting down? Do you have to push the power button to turn it back on? Just a thought - if you have Windows 7, go to Start, Control Panel, then System and Security. Now check 'Change when the computer sleeps' under Power Options. Under Edit Plan Settings, what do you have for 'Put the computer to sleep'. Does '20 minutes' show up in the box? Open it and change it to 'Never' and then Save changes. If this didn't help you,maybe someone else can.

Open your computer casing where the motherboard lies in and then remove the memory card, your new video card and then reset the BIOS, refer to the motherboard manual on how to do it. After resetting, plug in the memory card and video card. Close the casing and connect all the wiring. Power up your computer.

I want to install a memory upgrade how do I do it?


Desktops have 2 to 4 memory slots. If you have spares, you can do one of 2 things, remove a memory card and take it in for a match (2 more 1 gig chips is killer). If you only have 2 slots, take a chip in and ask for 2 more chips - that total the increased size that you desire.

Thanks to Microsoft's fat windows design, you will need a minimum of 2 gig to run vista and 1 gig to run XT. BTW, the term "fat" was not intended to be a compliment.

Once the new chips are installed, just turn the machine on and it will recognize the new memory and adjust accordingly.

I'm having difficulty reaching the memory chips. Plug-in drive, burner and writer in the way.


To reach the memory chips , remove the cables that come in the way. If that still doesn't help remove the drive, burner or whatever needs to remove to reach the memory chips. Make sure to make note of all the cables and parts positions before they are removed so that they can be reconnected as before.

Can I add 1GB memory chip in 2nd slot with a 512MB chip in 1st?


You can upgrade by inserting a 1GB PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM. I would put the 1MB in the first slot and move the 512MB chip to the second slot.
The 1GB should cost around $40.

Installing RAM


I was not able to find specific information for that computer but replacing memory on any desktop computer is usually pretty straight forward. You would unplug from power, remove the screws for the cover, and locate the slots that hold the memory chips and add the memory. It might be a case that all of your memory slots are full and you'll need to remove some of the memory first. You could replace them with larger capacity chips. HP lists generic memory information at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph03886&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=426931&lang=en Good luck
