Hp Pavilion 8860 pc memory upgrade

I am wondering if you have to replace the memory one at a time or both at once? I took out the 128mb, and the 25kmb, changed the battery and installed two kingston 512mb in both slots and then the computer lost everything. I put the memory that I took out back in and recovered the computer but I want to put the new memory in, but kinda puzzled on what the memory would have to do with the start up of windows? was it because I took the battery out? just kinda looking for some advise or help. maybee someone could help. thanks

When you removed the battery you erased the cmos settings, you should have been prompted to press F2 or Del to enter the settings to change time and date and save. If you get no beep at start up then the memory is not compatible with your motherboard. Try one old memory stick with one new one and see if it boots, if not, theres a definate conflict, did you go to the crucial memory site first for memory upgrade information and run the scanner tool http://www.crucial.com/

I want to Upgrade to Windows 7 but I don't know if my HP a1217n can handle it. What parts, if any, do I need to Upgrade in my computer?


You can upgrade to Windows 7, you will need to upgrade your memory from 512Mb to 2GB to run Windows 7 at a decent pace, you might be better off with a newer PC as the one you have is quite old.

Can i increase my dedicated memory of my notebook to 128mb or


Dedicated video memory is memory contained on a graphics cards which is separate from the RAM plugged into the motherboard. The memory on dedicated graphics cards is set aside specifically for the use of processing 3D graphics and effects. Increasing dedicated video memory requires upgrading a video card with one that has more memory built in.

Change HP Pavilion Slimline s7520n Video Card?


The on-board RadeonXpress 200M graphics is a dog. It offloads a lot of work to your cpu, and shares system memory which ties up the bus and detracts from the memory available to the OS.

The s7520 suffers from thermal problems due to it's size and poor ventilation. It also has a very limted power supply. Therefore, your choices are also limited. If you could score Radeon X600 or X1300 with 128MB for cheap somewhere it would be a worthwhile upgrade. It does need to be PCI (not PCI-E) and half-height (low profile).

Adding Memory to HP Pavilion N5160


The motherboard will only recognize 256 module. If you go to crucial.com and run the memory test, it will tell you the maximum memory the motherboard will support. So buyin a higher memory stick is wasting your money since it will not support it.

Sdram capacity


its that 512 mb total capacity for your computer memory?? if so read this:
To find the total amount of RAM that can be added , subtract the amount of RAM currently in the computer from the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold. For example, a computer has 256 MB of RAM. If the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold is 512 MB, then 256 MB is the amount of RAM that can be added. this info from the HP website , to find out more , go to http://www.hp.com/support , enter the model number , and look for more information about your computer specs, hope this helps , please rate & thanks AJ
