    what type of ram does it take and do you know the specs of the hard drive (all i need to know is the rpm count and the ghz)

    About the other query that you have posted regarding up-grading you computer RAM up to 2GB is possible, you can certainly upgrade it and regarding installing a better cooling fan do not worry the processor cooling FAN comes along with the Processor so once you up-grade the processor you can install the fan which comes along with the new one. However please update the link for the processor information page, its not working, do not copy and paste it form with in your account as it will not open in my web browser, try to search the processor you are trying to up-grade for the system without signing in to your account and then update the link for me to check the technical specifications and let you know if that is compatible with you system board in your computer.

Lcd monitor model w1707

Same as you would for an HP w1907 monitor,

If that doesn't work as a direct link, (It's a PDF file. May take up to 30 seconds before first page comes up), then use this page from HP Support,
Scroll down to one of the w1907's.
Do not take that metal box shield off, of the motherboard. There is a capacitor, or capacitors, that are holding a charge. Charge is BAD to FATAL.
(Charge is held for weeks, months, many times over a year; after unit has been unplugged from power)

(You did see on the plastic Back Cover, where it states -> Electrocution hazard, and No user serviceable parts, right?)

Sr2010nx has black red an white lines at start up

Are these lines something that flicker and go away or is your display stuck with just these lines on the screen? Does the machine boot? What operating system are you using?
I used to have one of these machines so can maybe help you out with this. Have you upgraded to BIOS 5.07, by chance? That will disable the onboard graphics. Flash with version 3.10 instead. You can dowload from HP here: of luck,

HP pavilionA1217n fans stay on all the time never shut down

A few problems have arose from upgrading your Windows on HP machines. A HP laptop I used to own did the same thing to me when upgrading from Vista to 7. I would recommend looking for updates on HP's website. If you cannot find any, which I wasn't able to, I would use a program called Speedfan.

I hope that helps.

Upgrading the power supply for new card evga 9800 gtx+

What kind of help do you need?

Open two screws in back of the computer case, take the side panel out, unscrew old power supply, disconnect the cables also, take the powersupply out, insert new powersupply, screw it in and connect the cables.

surely 500-800W will be enought.
Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks and good luck.

Upgrading HP Pavilion 764n RAM and Video Card

THe best performance would be achieved by upgrading this PC to the maximum allowed. If you are not sure the max, go to and enter in your model. The video card is not as important. If the hard drive is slow or the performance is still slow after a memory upgrade, you might want to reformat and reinstall Windows.

Mother Board upgrades

Well hello there i have read your problem and i really think you shouldn't have to waste time and money all you have to do is enter your motherboards model into a search engine on the net and to that add drivers update. e.g. "HP Pavilion a1720n driver update" and the search engine will bring up a list of links that will help you download the latest drivers without any problems if that does not work then try going to the shop you bought it and ask them to upgrade what ever driver that is giving you problems.
