Question about HP Compaq 6720s Notebook

1 Answer

I have a compaq 6720s with a max ram upgrade of 4GB. Currently I only have one stick (1GB) installed ... just tried to add another 1GB stick but the computer won't boot. I have tested the ram and it is working fine. Is it the memory slot or could it be something much more simple?

Have you tried both memory modules in the laptop seperately?
Does the computer post anything at all? Do you get flashing lights on the laptop?

Laptop currently has three 4GB RAM sticks, is it possible to use another 8GB stick to upgrade it to 20GB?


It should. But RAM slots have a maximum RAM per slot. Have you checked with manufacturer manual to see what the max ram per slot is? And the max ram per motherboard matters too. Your mobo will only support so much ram.

Can I add more RAM to my Averatec All-In=One A2?


Hey Nella Coffey

Unfortunately, more RAM cannot be installed due the limit of Slots available. However, you may be able to upgrade the current RAM modules and replace them. It appears it has 2048mb (2GB) of RAM which is possible split into two 1GB sticks. You "may" be able to upgrade to 4GB (split into two 2GB sticks). This is the current set up for the computer: 2048MB (4096MB max) SDRAM ' Memory Slots available for Upgrade: 0 ' Maximum RAM per available slot: 2048MB


Good Luck

I want to add 4GB of DDR3 memory, what further info to I need to know about the memory?


Newegg has a great site to find the correct and most compatible memory for you Here.
To maximize your ram speed, use the same speed and types of ram

For example, if you have a 1GB right now, add three more 1GB than putting in a 2GB and 1GB.
If you have a 4GB ram stick right now, add another 4GB and not 2x2GB. Also make sure the MHz on the ram is the same, (1333, 1600, 2000)

Enjoy upgrading your computer!

I have a compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc, was wondering how do i go about upgrading the RAM?


I have checked the Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Specification It Originally has 2GB Memory and supports upto 4GB RAM max. If you intend to upgrade the RAM, you can buy additional RAM and put them in you system. Here is the HP Guide to Replace RAM and How to Upgrade RAM Guide
Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX has two RAM slots for DDR-2 (533 or 667) Memory Modules. First you have to check that the RAM slot is available for additional RAM. I believe that it has two modules of 1GB each in both slots. So, you have to get two modules of RAM 2GB each to upgrade to 4GB (or one 2GB RAM module to upgrade to 3GB). Hence, it is recommended that you get 2GB replacement module for each 1GB module you have on you system from local laptop repair/ service center, which would be cost effective as existing 1GB RAM Modules would be useless for you upon upgrade.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

Could I use MacBook Pro 1G RAM (hynix 1GB 2Rx16 PC3-8500S-7-A1) to upgrade my T400 2G RAM to 3G?


Hello thx5,
It depends on how the 2GB in your T400 is currently configured. If the 2GB in there now is just one 2GB stick of RAM then yes you can add the other 1GB stick and then you will have 3GB of RAM installed. If your 2GB is two 1GB sticks of RAM (which is more likely to be the case) then the 1GB stick you have from your Macbook Pro isn't going to help.

Note: your laptop can handle up to 8GB of RAM via two 4GB sticks.

Hope this helps, if so please leave some good feedback. Thanks.

Blue screen with 4gb, OK with 3gb of RAM on 6720s laptop Using windows 7 (32 bit) there are 2x slots, but the top slot seems only capable of recognising 1gb of RAM without giving the blue screen at startup...


A 32bit OS and Processor is able to Identify and work with upto 3GB of memory.
That may be the cause of the issue
Even if any computer has more then 3gb of ram it will showup only upto 3gb.
if you install 4gb or more then also it will not show up.

.........and second reason, may the ram that you are using are not identical or one of them is not working properly.
Check the specifications of the ram and also try using one a time.

Thanks and Regards

RAM slot not working


Re-soldering a memory slot can be costly. It takes specialized equipment to solder this component and it has to be done right. If you tested the same stick in the two different slots and it fails to boot when the stick is in that one slot, then you have correctly identified a bad memory slot. To be cost efficient, it is propbably beter to change out the main board. There are however companies out there that will repair motherboards regardless of the problem, prices range widely for the standard repair plus parts plus shipping. E-Bay has several companies that advertise these types of repairs.

How much memory can this product of hp take i have cone some test and i think it should be up to 2gb per slots i have try to upgrade it to 4gb and fail i have even try 3gb and fail but it works with 3gb if...


If you are using the XP or Vista OS, if you are going to install more than 3 GB of Memory then it fails to show up on the computer properties.

Once you install the memory then you may check the BIOS for the memory installed in the system, the BIOS shows the exact amount of memory installed in the system.

You system is capable of 4 GB of RAM.
