Question about HP Pavilion 8860 (P2941A) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Sdram capacity I want to install 2 new 512 mbyte sdram chips in my hp pavilion 8860 desktop computer. manufacturer says 512 mbytes supported. Since this is an old unit is it possible that only 256 meg modules were available at the time the specs were generated, and I could actually use 512 mbyte chips now?

    The manufacturer states that only 512 megabyte total of ram is supported. I have found places on the internet that say that indeed the computer will support 2 512 megabyte ram chips. I have had experiences in the past where the manufacturers data hasn't been updated as new hardware and operating systems become available. I am trying to find out if this is the case this time and I can actually install 1.024GB of ram. Thanks

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

I've produced the link for the download, but firstly remove the audio driver and reboot before trying to reinstall the drivers. Make sure you have very little applications running in the background before trying this.
