Question about Computers & Internet
I HAVE A HP PAVILLION, MODEL A720N WITH A DATA BUS SPEED OF 400MHZ AND LISTED MEM SPEC OF PC2700 DIMM 184-PIN 333MHZ MHZ SPEED. I PURCHASED (2) KINGSTON VALUE RAM 1GB PC3200 MEMORY FOR THE CPU. I PUT THE FIRST CHIP IN - FAN KICKS ON HIGH SPEED THEN SLOWS DOWN TO ALLOW BOOT UP. SHUT IT DOWN AND INSTALL 2ND CHIP - TURN POWER ON AND THE FAN RUNS CONTINUOUSLY ON HIGH SPEED - NEVER KICKS DOWN TO LOW SPEED TO ALLOW BOOT UP. ANY IDEAS AS TO WHAT THE PROBLEM IS?
You have the answer in your question. I have checked the PC specification and you are right, it uses PC2700 memory. Therefore you need to install PC2700 memory. PC3200 memory will be the wrong speed and will not be supported.
