This machine uses PC133
There should be 2 slots and it will hold a maximum of 512MB

Some computer shops may not carry your type of ram any more; so I would call first.

When memory check starts, get a + then hangs


Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, observe Anti-Static precautions, then remove the ram memory module/s.

(Slang for ram memory module, is ram memory 'stick')

Use a pencil eraser, and clean the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram memory module.

Just rub the eraser on the contact pins.
(If the eraser on the end of the pencil is attached by a metal sleeve, refrain from letting the metal sleeve touch the contact pin/s)

When handling the ram memory module, refrain from touching the contact pins on the bottom.
You can handle the ram memory module anywhere else, as the body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Lay the module on a wood table, or other non-Static surface when cleaning.
Example of a DDR Sdram ram memory module as used in a Pavilion 523n,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

Use air to remove the eraser dust.
(You can use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth is sufficient)

Reinsert the ram memory module/s. Close the computer case, plug back into power. Wait 1 minute, turn the computer on.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Working on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case (Unpainted surface) to relieve your body of Static.

Should you get up, and walk away in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return Touch the metal frame again ]

Opening your computer case.
Looking at the Back of the computer, there are two screws on the far right edge.
One above, one below.

Remove the two screws, slide the side panel back about 1 inch, tilt the side cover top to the outside, remove the side cover. (If memory serves)

Should you need guidance in removing, and reinstalling a ram memory module, hit me up in a Comment.

What kind of memory module can i add to increase my memory for a hp pavilion a305w. when I am playing games online it says virtual memory low..


Virtual Memory (or Paging File) is controlled on your computer and is actually space on your hard drive. In windows XP, go to START, right click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware Tab, select Settings under Performance. In the Advanced Tab, under Virtual Memory, select Change. Set the Paging File Size to "System Managed". Click Set>OK>OK>OK.

This error should go away now, unless your hard drive is getting full. Check to make sure that you have at least 25% free space on the hard drive where the Paging File is set up.

Did this solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.

I have 4 banks of ram slots. Can I keep the Bank1 256k Bank2 256k. Can I put 1G into bank3.


It is strongly recommended that you install RAM in matched pairs. So if you add a 1GB module in bank 3 then you should add 1GB in bank 4
But you can add just the one module and it should work, but not at optimal speed.

Memory upgrade


Add 1GB ram modules in slots 3 and 4 for a total of 2.5 GB RAM. $98.00 plus tax not bad.
