Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

1 Answer

Memory Installation I installed 2 new memory cards (512 replaced 256) in my HP Pavilion DV4000, but now the computer screen is black. Did I do something wrong or forget a step? Everything seemed fairly straight-forward.

    Thanks, Wayne. I "reseated" the new memory cards - both at the same time - and that seemed to do the trick. I had read somewhere that the installation sequence might affect results. I appreciate your help! CC

Have you tried putting the old memory sticks back in, if they still work, i would try just putting one of the 512's in. If that don't work try the other.
I'm guessing either one or both of the 512's are either faulty or not compatible.
Hope this helps.

Sdram capacity


its that 512 mb total capacity for your computer memory?? if so read this:
To find the total amount of RAM that can be added , subtract the amount of RAM currently in the computer from the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold. For example, a computer has 256 MB of RAM. If the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold is 512 MB, then 256 MB is the amount of RAM that can be added. this info from the HP website , to find out more , go to http://www.hp.com/support , enter the model number , and look for more information about your computer specs, hope this helps , please rate & thanks AJ

Memory upgrade


The memory should be DDR II Ram. To find how much ram you have simply click on Start then right click on "My Computer" and click properties. Chances are you have 512 ram. It will tell you in the lower right hand side along with your processer and windows version. Once you have found out how much ram you have, turn off your computer flip it upside down and pull out the battery. Then you should see a cover with one or two screws in it that measures about 3 inch by 4 inch. Remove the screws and take the cover off. This is where your memory goes. If there is 512 memory in your computer you will either have 1 512 memory stick or 2 256 sitcks. Remember that any time you upgrade memory it is best to take out the old memory and replace with either one stick of higher ram or two of equal ram. Never mis a 512 and a 256 or 512 and 1gig ect. Take the ram stick/sticks out and bring them down to the store with you just so as to get the correct memory. Also, remember when you replace the memory, if you are just upgrading to one 1gig stick to put it in the A DIMM slot. This is the primary ram slot.

Hp Pavillion laptop freezes when I install secondary memory


You may not put all together the 256 and 512, the system encountered error when two memory are not equal size and not equal brand.

Either you select 2 units 256 memory or either 2 units 512. or use only 1 unit 512 memory so that no freezes will happen.
