Question about HP Compaq dc7600 Convertible Minitower PC Desktop
Posted by Anonymous on
3 year old posts now floated to the top of fixya. mr HONG.
all these answer to that question is on your HP support pages.
ever word, is there, if you can read. ever go to HP? actual?
there are 1million posts online at all forums puter, answer this...
no lack of answers, but here is MINE.
XP 32bit can not use over 4GB RAM. 4.3GB max. decimal)
Ti-30Xa (hand calc)
(press calc. keys 2 to the nth power of 32.(my calc, shows 4,294,967,296. that is all 32bit OS can do,. period. (minus 1) bytes, (x8 is bits) (this is a OS limit not HARDWARE)
64bit addressing is 2^64 (say 2 to the 64th power)
and will be less ,if the motherboard (100s there are) has onboard video, it steals mAIN RAM, so is less, but if not onboard video but is card (PCI express?>) opo cards for sure.
better cards all have there own, RAM called RAM DAC chips.
the Dont steal RAM these cards, so main is not reduced.
Your MOBO HAS"
Motherboard (system board) - Features the 945G Express chipset with Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950"
or is shut off and Express card inserted.
like this options day1, sold
ATI Radeon X300 PCI-Express graphics board(has own ram)
Your BIOS tells you the quantity of ram, look there first.?
on my PC the ESC key calls up BIOS then F1 is the INFO page.
or F10 on other OLDER HP PC, does same, do so now.
A true 64bit PC (some are NOT) can run W7 64bit.
Mine all run w10, 64bit, and all are CORE 2 processors or larger.
and will run all versions of windows, 10 and linux 64B.
5GB , WHY?
and using 5GB is so wrong, tell me it's not balanced.
so you have that< why do that? it must be balanced in pairs for 64bit usage.(DUAL CHANNEL RULES GOOGLE THAT)
the service manual in this PC is clear, read that yet?, how to fit RAM correctly? in pairs for max speed from the processor
and the BIOS will run the PC on the slowest ram not the fastest.
the bad news is HP only supports 64bit on XP (ON THIS 1 PC)
but XP is dead, at Microsoft. they shut down the PnP severs.
so getting XP to run right TODAY , fresh installed is big pain.!!!
your other choice is to buy w7, 64bit at microsoft.com
then down load the ISO and burn an install USB stick
boot the stick and installed this OS. THIS WAY.
tHIS CAN WORK REALLY WELL., but my guess many features will be dead.
for sure all XP HP drivers are useless, and all HP XP apps no good. now.
but the OS may run OK, and you can spend days getting each missing driver, the w7,, PnP servers dont support. (ASK FOR HELP)
1 AT A TIME. lots of work, i can help you here, i do this all the time.
see here, see the steps using the chip sniffer.
see the sniffer,?

No OS stated, xp, w7,w8.w10>? what?
32 bit is no 64bit
in CP,control panel
see system type, 32/.64
go into BIOS
see installed RAM
run RAM test there?
not only that,the DRAMS need to installed in the slots using
rules stated in the HP manual
in pairs for 64bit and same size. (exact same is best)
you can not just throw them in.
depends on the processor,, MMI brains rules

I do not think you have a hardware problem, I think you have a software problem. Since you are talking about a Pentium D and DDR2 memory, this is an older system . I bet you are running Windows XP. Windows XP is a 32 bit operating system, it is only capable of addressing a maximum of 4Gb. This includes everything not just the RAM, so if your video card has 512 Mb of onboard memory, it is included in the total. The fact that the system sees 5 Gb means the hardware is capable of supporting that much RAM. The only way you are going to be able to use all your RAM is to install a 64 bit OS.

i) u said that your computer is going to safe mode menu, if it is really goes to safe mode, then try to click the safe mode option and see whether ur able to go onto the screen or desktop
let us even reseting jumper that ur agent or customer rep told, if you can dismantle your computer on your motherboard u will have CMOSbattery(which is slilver , circualar, i think u knowit) , just remove it by screw driver gently and waitfor few 5 minutes and replace and close the tower....... and there is no need of resetting your jumper after doing(removing CMOS battery)
ii) if you are unable to go the desktop by clicking safemode, then there defenitely a problem with your OS or operating sytem
i would suggest u reload your OS or format ursystem or reload Windows XP or Windows Vista Freshly
by tapping F11(incase of Vista) or F10(in case of XP) continously from the moment u power on ur system
here we are trying to bring ur system back to your factory settings(getting the system back to day u got ur system)
but there is problem that u will loose all the data that is present on system(risk at ur own will), i.e., what every that is present in My Documents.....
when you do this recovery(by pressing F11 or F10) you will get an option to peform NDR and DR in order to save datain my documents(NDR: non destructive recovery, DR : Destructive Recovery...)
select NDR to save data in my documents.... only in case of XP
