Question about HP Pavilion 8860 (P2941A) PC Desktop
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/
