Will m7350n memory chips work in a m7000

A) HP Support > HP Pavilion Media Center m7350n Desktop PC > Main Support page,

Product information > Product specifications > HP Media Center m7350n Desktop PC Product Specifications,



That is DDR2 Sdram at 400MegaHertz. (400MHz)

Has 240 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.120 on each side.
One Locating Notch on the bottom also.

Problem is I find no HP Pavilion m7000, or HP Pavilion m7000n; Desktop PC.

Look on the back of the computer for the white Service Tag.
What is the Product Number?
P/N = Product Number

Post back in a Comment.

I can tell you that if it's a Pavilion m7060n Desktop PC, it will work,

Same thing if it is a Pavilion m7070n Desktop PC,

Be SURE you FOLLOW Anti-Static Procedures, when working on your unplugged from power computer.

Everywhere on the Ram Memory module ('Stick'), EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom; is the BODY.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Handle the Ram Memory module by the Body.
Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I want to upgrade my memory on my Pavilion 513n,

FixYa is a product support website, and as such we do not delve into manufacturing. No we cannot supply ram memory.

I can supply you with the solution to your questions, however.

This is HP Support, and the main page for the Pavilion 513n Desktop PC,

If you click on > Product information > Product specifications > HP Pavilion 513n Desktop PC Product Specifications,
you can view,

A) What type of ram memory the computer uses,
B) How much is the Maximum Total Amount for the computer,
C) How much is the Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot,
D) How many ram slots

Look under the Memory heading.
A) What type of ram memory
Type - DDR
It's DDR Sdram

Speed - PC1600/PC2100
Tells you either PC1600 can be used, or PC2100.

PC1600 is DDR Sdram that operates at 200MHz.
PC2100 is DDR Sdram that operates at 266MHz.

{To expound:
Ram memory operates at a Frequency Rate. Slang for frequency rate is 'Speed'.
Mega = approximately 1 Million
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second
Example: PC2100 is DDR Sdram that operates at 266 Million Cycles per Second }

B) What is the Maximum Total Amount for the computer. (Motherboard)
According to HP it is 1GB.

{Maximum - 1GB (2 X 512) HP recommended maximum}

I believe this to be wrong. The Total Maximum Amount is 2GB.
1GB per ram slot.

I base this upon using the memory configurator's of several websites, that sell ram memory for the Pavilion 513n desktop computer, and looking at what the motherboard chipset for the Pavilion 513n will support.

The motherboard chipset is the Intel 845GL.
This chart found on Wikipedia, states what the Intel 845GL chipset will support,

As you can see reading across from the 845GL subheading, and looking under > Max.memory, 2GB is listed.

Sources for online memory configurators,

In this case,
C) Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.

D) There are Two ram slots. {Proper speak for ram Slot is ram Bank}

Kingston is a good brand for economical ram memory.
So is Ultra.

An easy way to find out what type of ram memory you need, and how much is the Maximum Total Amount, as well as the Maximum Amount for Each ram slot, is to use an automatic scanner from a website that sells ram memory.

The above four websites listed, are but a small handful of the total websites online that offer an automatic scan.
Let's use for an example.

On the main page,

,you will see - Scan My System, in blue.
Simply click on it to run an automatic scan of your computers hardware.
Doesn't look at your personal effects, just the hardware of your computer.

After the scan is done, you will be presented with the ram memory info you need.
Several options of ram memory are presented for you to choose from.

HP Media Center m1195c PC

It's a rather indepth process and is usually just easier to replace the computer.  Motherboards have many different adapters / slots / options.  If you're meaning to replace the motherboard and processor cpu, it'd be best to buy a package deal from newegg / tigerdirect / etc.  To be able to use your other components, you'd have to make sure the new motherboard has the same type memory slots, video card slot, etc.
