Re: i want to install the new 2gb myself into my compac...
Installing memory couldn't be easier! (Just make sure you have the right sort for you particular computer)
Turn off computer and UNPLUG from mains.
Open the case to expose the motherboard.
(Ideally, before you do anything else you should make sure you are wearing an earthing wristband to prevent any possible damage to your PC from static discharge. Having said that, I've changed loads of memory in the past without wearing one and have never had a problem, but you have been warned!)
Locate the slots that your memory goes into - This will be fairly easy because they won't fit into anything else! Insert the memory cards and make sure they are fully locked home.
Put the case back on, plug it in and turn it on.
And that is it! Simple! The PC will automatically recognise the new memory - There are no settings that you need to change.

You will have to add a new card to the motherboard. Open the cover and insert the new card in a slot and close the cover.
Run the driver CD of the new card to install the drivers .
From Control Panel->System->HW->Device Manager select the old card and disable it. Also check if the new card shows.
Reboot the computer and connect the video cable to the new card.
Your new card is functional now. Go to Control Panel->Display->Settings and configure Colors and Resolution of the new card.
the specs for your computer, it states that it is equipped with 2gb of memory 2x1gb and max at 2gb, so I doubt that any higher memory upgrade installed would work, or else it would cause your system to crash or even damage it.
You should be fine to just turn the computer on straight away as soon as you have installed your new RAM. The computer will recognize the new upgrade straight away provided you have got memory that is compatible with the desktop computer.
When you upgrade the RAM take the old RAM out and make sure your new RAM runs at the same speed as your old RAM.
From what i can remember the maximum RAM speed that an HP pavilion supports is 400MHz although it could well be 333MHz.
The RAM that's installed in the desktop at this moment in time will have the speed on it so you check with that.
This (4th)link should answer all your questions. If you enter your service tag number Dell can help more You can also get help from where you buy the memory it's not that hard..I like the first link to find out what memory to buy. I like the second link for pricing. Please rate me mysleuth
hi! there if your addibg a memory card check your memory speed if match to other memory card that are installed already,they should have same speed e.g DDR PC228 or SDR PC333 so check this out before installing.But if you replace the older one upgrading,switch off your computer open cover,there is slot there for your memory card bedide your processor,at both end there a lockway,unlock your memory card and pull it out all if you have several one,then insert on one slot if that is one memory card at 2gb lock it on both end.then swich on your computer check this out on your computer properties if there is change.how to do this left click my computer,click properties.regards
Your system comes stock with one stick of DDR2 (512 MB), which means that it is _ not_ dual channel DDR2 memory as dual channel DDR2 must be installed in matched pairs. Try to exchange the new memory for 2G of some single channel DDR2.
Install the RAM on memory slot and Switch on your system and go to BIOS settings. There you can check whether your RAM is working properly or not. If it shows no memory installed then the RAM Chip may be damaged.
