    Hi, this in not correct,

    Ihave an HP Pavilion but it has 4 DIMM slots, and it came with 2 x 512 as standard.

    I have just pit 2 x 1Gb in the other 2 slots, and it has booted up fine, system info confirms it is registering 3Gb.

    Be brave, go for it!

According to this website, 1GB is the maximum. Sorry, doesn't seem to be going your way.

What is the ram limit of HP Pavilion 061 EX262AA-ABA s7530n - can I up it to 2 gigs?


usually the processors which we normally use are 32 bit. So we cannot extend the RAM beyond 4gb. That is the maximum limit.

How do you install 4 sticks of ram? I have 2x 512mb and 2x 1gb. Do I put the pairs in the same color slots?


Yes, there are 4 slots, two colors....put the same ram configuration in the same color. RE: 1 GB sticks go in one color, 512 MB sticks go in the other.

I have problem about ram


If the manual says this motherboard support up to 1 GB RAM, you cannot put 2 GB. You can put 2x 512 GB RAM or 1GB RAM
Also try to upgrade your bios, maybe a better bios version supports more than 1 GB RAM.

I want to upgrade my HP BA 600 Mother Board`s RAM Capacity


Hello,
Most likely your MB is too old for this upgrade although there is a chance you could flash your bios (reprogram your computer's brain to accept the new memory providing hp has a flash for it).
here is a link for the latest bios flash for your computer, use at your own risk.

good luck.
Thank you,

RAM NOT DETECTING


I had the same issue on this board where it came with a Samsung 512 MB 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 DIMM. I put in a 1 GB Kingston with the same specs (533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2) and it would not recongize the Samsung anymore with the system reading as 1 GB of RAM instead of 1.5 GB. Tried every configuration and would only see the Kingston. It would only see the Samsung if I pulled out the Kingston regarless of the slots I use. So, I just bought the exact same make/model of Kingston and it recognized that fine and the system now has 2 GB of memory (max this board allows). And, I had already installed the latest BIOS for this board from Intel before doing all this so wasn't an old BIOS. I'm figuring the board didn't like something about the Samsung memory (speed, module configuration, etc.) that made it not play nice with the Kingston. If interested I bought the DM8400A/1G Kingston modules. And, this board appears not to support dual channel memory. Only has channel A, slots 0 and 1, and I read need two channels to support dual channel (seems obvious). Boards that supports dual channel memory normally have 4 memory slots, two for channel A and two for channel B, then put in matching modules in slot 0 for channel A and B and have dual channel memory access. And if want more ram, then matching modules in slot 1 for channel A and B.

you can add up to 2 gb RAM using either 2 x 184 Pin DIMMs or 2 x 168 Pin SDRAM DIMMs. However that MB does support pc400. The supported RAM speeds are 100, 133, 200, and 266 MHz

You can buy a pair of Kingston 256 MB DDR SDRAM PC2100 (266 MHz) from the kingston website for under $50
part no: KVR266X64C25/256

Kingston is a well known and respected manufacturer of memory.

Memory pairs


no place them this way if one kind is kingston or whatever a1 b1 and the other kind makes no difference as long as their in the right sockets/ a2 b2 these should be colored so if you have 2 of one kind and 2 of another you would keep them in the perspective colors ?dual ram is usually done this way you would have 1 gb in a1 and the other in b1
