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.

How to upgrade RAM for compaq nx9010


Upgrading memory helps improve system performance. By following the step-by-step instructions in this document, you can successfully upgrade random-access memory (RAM) for all HP and Compaq notebook computers. While the graphics might not match your specific computer model, the steps will work. Read all instructions carefully before attempting memory installation. NOTE:Do not purchase memory modules until you know the type of memory used by the computer, the maximum amount of memory the computer can use, and the memory slot configuration. How to find the product number of your HP notebook PC To order replacement internal components such as memory, you must know the exact product number of the computer. For many HP notebook PCs, the product number and serial number are printed on a label on the bottom of the computer. Also, the product number and serial number are printed on the outside of the shipping box that you received when you purchased the computer. Product number locations can vary, and there are numerous methods to find the product number of your notebook. NOTE:A general family name may be imprinted on the case near the keyboard or on the frame around the display screen, but this does NOT provide sufficient information for ordering replacement parts. Finding memory information for your computer model (amount installed, maximum supported, and type of memory) Important memory upgrade information is in the specifications document for your HP computer. To find product specifications, browse to the Product Information category on the support page for your computer model. Refer to the Memory section within the product specifications document for memory information specific to your computer. Among the information listed, take note of the following items. It will be useful when purchasing memory and when performing the next steps. Amount of memory installed - The current amount of memory installed on your computer. Go to Verifying how much memory can be added to verify the amount of memory currently installed. Maximum memory supported - Subtract the amount of memory already installed from the maximum amount supported by the system to determine how much memory to get. You can also buy the maximum amount allowed and replace the currently installed memory. Once you know the maximum for your system, check Maximum memory supported by operating system to see how much memory your version of Windows will support. Use the lower of these two numbers as your maximum memory. Type of memory (including speed) - It is recommended to get the same type of memory (same size, same speed, same manufacturer) for each slot. For best performance, get the fastest memory that the motherboard supports. CAUTION: Due to the variety of possible configurations, some motherboards might not be able to properly configure memory if the array of small outline dual in-line memory modules (SO-DIMMs) contains a SO-DIMM that is not from the same manufacturer, has a different CAS latency value, or has a different density value (high and low used together). Make sure all SO-DIMMs meet the requirements of for the motherboard (the information listed in product specifications), have the same part number, are from the same manufacturer, and meet the basic memory requirements for your motherboard. If not, make sure that you can return the memory if it is not recognized by the system after you install the new memory. Determining where your memory is located Memory is installed inside of the memory module compartment, which is located on the bottom of the computer on most HP notebook PCs. Some HP notebooks are designed with the memory module compartment under the keyboard. If the memory module compartment for your particular notebook is located under the keyboard, HP recommends that you contact an HP-authorized support or repair facility for assistance in ordering and replacing the memory. Verifying how much memory can be added Prior to upgrading memory, you need to verify how much memory you currently have installed to determine how much memory can be added. Using your User Guide for memory installation instructions The User Guide contains helpful information and pictures showing how to remove and install memory in your specific notebook model. A copy of the User Guide is stored on the hard drive, and it is also available for download from the HP Web site. Installing memory Notebooks are designed so that additional memory can be added using a Phillips screwdriver. Use the following steps to install memory in an HP or Compaq notebook computer. After reviewing the following steps, if you are not confident in performing the installation yourself, contact an HP authorized distributor for technical assistance. NOTE: If someone other than HP installs or upgrades the memory, any damage caused by the memory and/or by a person trying to install or upgrade the memory is excluded from coverage under the product warranty. The customer assumes all risk and liability for damages for any such installation or upgrade. NOTE: Important! You might find that your HP or Compaq computer is able to support a physical installation of 4 GB or more memory. However, this maximum memory might be further limited by the operating system not being able to address the full range of physical memory. 32-bit operating systems, such as 32-bit types of Windows 7, Vista, and XP, can address approximately 3.3 GB. This limitation is present on all 32-bit hardware and 32-bit operating systems and is not limited to HP and Compaq PC systems or Microsoft software operating systems. Verify the computer is turned off, not simply in sleep or hibernate mode. Disconnect the A/C power adapter. Turn the notebook over and place it on a firm surface. Remove the battery. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the cover on the memory module compartment. (See the User Guide for instructions on how to remove the memory for the specific computer. If you need help finding the User Guide, refer to the section Locating your User Guide for memory installation instructions .) With the cover removed, and before you touch the memory, ground yourself to discharge any static electricity. NOTE: To ground yourself, and discharge any static electricity, place one hand on the case of the computer and touch the other hand to a metal surface or grounded object, such as the metal part of a lamp. To release the memory, use a small wooden tool, or fingernail, to spread the clips holding the ends of the memory in place. One side of the memory will rise when the clips are released. Remove the memory and place it in an anti-static bag. Remove the new memory from the protective anti-static bag and hold the memory by the ends. Place the gold contacts into the connector (bracket) and gently, but firmly, press the memory into place. The clips will click when the memory is properly seated. Replace the cover and tighten the restraining screw. Replace the battery and A/C power. Turn on the computer and allow it to reconfigure and recognize the additional memory and improve performance. Buying memory HP recommends purchasing memory directly from HP, an authorized HP dealer, or from a reputable computer parts supplier. You can buy computer memory from most local electronic stores and online shopping sites (such as www.crucial.com or HP , for example). Many of the online sites partner with HP to automatically suggest the correct type of memory based on the model of your computer. Before purchasing memory, make sure you know how much memory you need and what type of memory is compatible with your computer.

Latest bios for HP Media Center PC?


sad how, how fixya AI guessing wrong??? pathetic, mess....
wow a very old media center, gen 2 of 14 or so.
HP does not support this quote
HP Media Center m1070n Desktop PC,its RETIRED now
https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products


The BIOS does not do that!
what HP, it has full name and model.
the MMC controls this, and is very strict. (mem-managment controller)
the memory you are buying is no good. for YOUR PC.
this is so very common
and worse every year,
ever heard of Crucial or Kingston memory
they can fit up memory for you, it very complex.
not just DMM1, 2,3, but speed, min.
density rules.
chip count rules
chip voltage, 1.3. 1.5 or both or?
Total memory max allowed and PER SOCKET !
and even number of chips per side of stick , rule.
that worst was intel i5 old processors.
those are facts, and only the exact motherboard you have a
and what processor is there, (and if mmc is external to processor that)
matter.
? this?
M1070n

finding data on such and old box.
is not easy but google can dig up bits.
why not ask Kingston? for help,.

key facts are, (besides old)
HP Media Center m1070n Desktop PC
Intel Pentium 4 520 / 2.8 GHz
Intel 915P Express (my guess, mmc is inside here)
oops
  • 512 MB / 4 GB (max)
  • Memory Speed 400 MHz
  • Memory Specification Compliance
    PC3200
  • Features
    unbuffered
  • Configuration Features
    2 x 256 MB
  • Technology
    DDR SDRAM
  • Installed Size
    512 MB
  • Data Integrity Check
    non-ECC
  • 4 GB
  • Form Factor
    DIMM 184-pin
looks like 1GB max per slot , 1 to 4.
good luck finding SDRAM in 2017 that works.

why not find a newer box? (pc) say 2010 or newer.,
they will run better and can buy ram easy
vastly better.... even Goodwill has them for few bucks
or this.
or like this,

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,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=90384&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=5&submit.x=6&lang=en&cc=us

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,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets

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

Sources for online memory configurators,
1) Crucial.com
2) Tigerdirect.com
3) Newegg.com
4) Memory4less.net

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 Crucial.com for an example.

On the main page,

http://www.crucial.com/

,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.
