Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook

1 Answer

Memory Upgrade I have an HP Pavilion dv2000, about 1 year old. It has vista, but only 958 MB of RAM. It runs slow and loud and has trouble playing videos from the internet and DVDs. Would upgrading to 2 GB of RAM be likely to fix these problems? If I took my laptop to a BestBuy store near me and purchased the RAM there, would they also install it for me? My laptop was purchased at a BestBuy, but it was a gift and I do not have the receipt or warranty.

Increasing the amount of RAM will always help your laptop's performance. However, in this case, I would try going to HP's web site and updating the video drivers or try a different program to play DVD's. 958 should be more than enough RAM to run DVD's smoothly. You can find DVD software at filehippo.com for free.
As for RAM instalation:
I would only let Bestbuy install them if it's free. Installing memory chips is simple, they're located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. (Be sure to power down first) Do it yourself and use the money you save on the outrageous gas prices.

I have the HP Pavilion a1330n computer, I just installed 4G of memory (4 X1G) to replace my previous 1G (2 X 512). The memory specs are correct but every morning the computer has a black screen and I have...


NO OS stated, Blues screens you mean the BSOD with the halt? statement on screen? i bet yes. (with words on blue screen)
words matter.....
Bought new memory or old?
no, (to supposed) yes, to , back to beginning done wrong or luck bad.
so put back the old RAM, does that work.?
or use just 1 stick of old ram. ? 1 by 1.
then repeat, new ram 1by1,
see? one stick is bad, if it all ran perfectly before you touched ram.
buying RAM for such and old PC is not easy.
step1:
first ASK HP, you asked now at yahoo, why here, and not HP>?
but HP long long ago retired the A series.
per HP pages. here
https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products
personally I do go the used PC store and buy $20 PC vastly newer.
sure would, but lets follow the rules for yours, step by step
step 2, (1 was hp , no support)
next is to lean what Memory was uses and what the processor spec is on the same,
the mobo is 2005 era. (as old as) 12 years ago...
its not Intel, its Athlon 64 (S) 3800+ 2.4 GHz
if it was intel , the intel chip drives the memory with its MMC
its not.
ASUS made this mobo by HP contract.A8AE-LE
hp name is: AmberineM-GL6E
max mem
4 GB* (4 x 1 GB) requires the replacement of the installed 512 MB DIMMs
PC-3200 MB/sec , speed ( not slower !) faster ok.
184 pin, DDR SDRAM
Dual-channel memory architecture
4 x 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets support unbuffered non-ECC 4 GB 400/300 MHZ DDR memory modules

page 7 is sparse in your manual.
https://www.manualslib.com/manual/721818/Asus-A8ae-Le.html?page=7#manual


the Athalon 64 has an ON DIE mmc, memory controller
this sets the base limits of all possible memory.
the memory speed is not by FSB, speeds
simpler terms, the memory is always running at a set fraction of the CPU speed
this chip has the advantage for running , cleaner DDR signals.
that other FSB designs.
what that means , to the user more memory choices.


I see this maker selling memory , a top maker,
http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/HP-Compaq/pavilion-a1330n-series

test the sticks all 1 by 1,,, one good way to test it is run fast games.

DDR stick density rules and numbers and types of memory pre stick and pre side can cause problems on old processors.
I could not find the Athalon 64 rules on this, AMD can tell you at there site but im too lazy to look it up..
best is to let Crucial or Kingston guy you , here. for SURE>

Hp mini 1030nr is slow after ram upgrade. I installed a second 1 mb dimm thinking to take the speed up a notch. Instead it seems to work more slowly. Did I miss something?


This is a common misconception. Increasing the RAM typically slows things down due to additional information needed to be read and interpreted. In the old DOS days this can be compared to a wait state, were the faster components need to wait for slower ones to catch up. You may be better off removing the added RAM.

What can I safely upgrade to for gaming


0Hi there,

The Pavillion dv4t comes with a choice of specs to meet your needs. As you haven't listed them I will list the Minimum that you will need to run the games, that way, you can check them against what you have and decide if you need to upgrade.

I will list for Sims 3. Even with the basic dv4t you will not need to upgrade to play Sims 2.

Sims 3

Running Vista SP1

CPU (processor speed) - 2.4 Ghz Pentium 4 or Athlon 2400+
RAM (memory) - 2 GB
Video Card (graphics) - 128 MB (Nvidia GeForce Go 6200, ATI Radeon Mobile 9600, or equivalent)
Hard Drive (space for installation) - 6.5 GB and an extra 1.5 GB for custom content.

These are the minimum specs for running on a laptop.

Hope that helps

HP Pavilion DV2000 running very slowly


Yes! I would not recommend anything below 2GB at minimum. I have one laptop with 2GB and one with 3GB: they both open programs and browse the internet very quickly. Even with just two programs open (Internet Explorer and Outlook 2007) it uses 1.1GB of memory.

Definitely upgrade your memory. I recommend this site:
http://www.4allmemory.com/

Just pick your model and they recommend the memory to pruchase. TIP: order with next day shipping - it's only $10. The free shipping takes 14 days. So unless you're patient (I'm not) the $10 many be worth it.
