Manual HP530 laptop Need to upgrade memory


HP Support > HP 530 Notebook PC > Main Support Page,

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3375953&lang=en&cc=us

Under the bottom heading, Resources for HP 530 Notebook PC, click on Manuals.

Scroll down to the heading, Service and maintenance information.
Click on the first file listed -
HP 530 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide.

This is a Service Manual in PDF file form.
After you click on the file name it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.



Going back to the main support page, and again under the Resources for HP 530 Notebook PC heading, there are instructional videos available.

Repair videos and animations. (Second heading. After you click, it takes a second for the video main listings to come up)

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3375953&lang=en&cc=us

Click on, Remove/Replace Videos

In the list on the left click on Memory Boards.

[Advice:

1) Ease the spring clip outwards from the ram memory module, ('Stick'), just far enough so the 'bump' on the spring clip, clears the Side Notch on the ram memory module.

Now ease the other spring clip outwards. When both spring clips 'bumps' are clear of the Side Notches, the ram memory module will slightly pop-up.

DO NOT bring the ram memory module to a straight up 90 degree position when removing!
You will damage the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the ram memory module.
You will also damage the contact pins in the ram memory slot on the motherboard.

When removing and installing, the ram memory module must be angled.

2) Handle a ram memory module by the Body, refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

3) Make sure the ram memory module/s are fully seated when installing.
When the 'bumps' on the spring clips are in the Side Notches of the ram memory module, it is fully seated.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1GB_DDR2_SO-DIMM.png

4) At the bottom of a ram memory module is a Locating Notch.
This lines up with a Locating Lug in the bottom of the ram memory slot.
Make SURE you have these two aligned when installing.

When i turn on my computer hp dv2000 i only hear 1 long beep followed by 2 short beeps..but theres no display.


Common solutions for issues that cause blinking LEDs or beep tones
Check for loose connections and test the memory
Blink codes are often displayed after a user adds memory to the computer but does not seat the module properly. The LEDs may also blink error codes if a hardware component is loose because the computer was dropped or jarred. Some HP Notebook PCs come with one stick of memory but have two memory slots. The problem could be that the stick of memory or one of the memory slots has a bad connection.
The memory module compartment on most notebooks is located on the bottom of the case. The exact position varies by model. However, on some models, the memory compartment is under the keyboard. See your User Guide for the exact location of memory modules on your notebook.
NOTE: Removing and reseating memory modules requires the use of tools and the partial disassembly of the computer. If you do not feel comfortable doing this work yourself, take the computer to an authorized retailer for technical service.
Check for loose memory modules
If a memory module is loose or is not making good contact with the memory slots, the computer does not recognize all of the memory. Reseating the memory module may resolve memory failure errors. To reseat the memory module, take the memory module out of the memory slot and then put it back into the slot to get a better connection so that the computer can recognize the memory.
The memory module compartment on most notebooks is located on the bottom of the case, however, on some models, the memory compartment is under the keyboard. See your User Guide for the exact location of memory modules on your notebook.
Use the following steps to remove and reseat the memory modules:
Step 1 - Remove the electrical power
To remove all power from the computer and prevent accidental damage to the electronic components, do the following:Turn off the computer by pressing and holding down the Power button for about 30 seconds. Unplug the AC adaptor from the notebook.Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.
Step 2 - Remove the memory module
Remove the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.1 - Loosen the compartment's retention screws2 - Lift up and remove the memory compartment coverRemove the memory modules from the memory slots.1 - Pull the retention clips away from sides of the memory module2 - Gently pull the module out of the memory module slotCAUTION: To prevent damage to the memory module, grasp the memory module by the side edges. Do not touch the metal contacts.
Reseat the memory module by holding module at a 45-degree angle, and pressing it firmly into the memory slot until it is seated.1 - Align the notched edge of the module with the tab in the slot.2 - Firmly press the module into the slot. 3 - Pivot top edge of memory module downward until retention clips snap into place.After reseating the memory module, replace the cover over the memory compartment before restarting the computer.1 - Align the cover tabs2 - Tighten the memory compartment cover screws
Step 3 - Replace the electrical power
When troubleshooting problems, use only the AC power to perform the tests. After the problem is resolved, you can turn off the computer and insert the battery into the notebook. Plus the connection from the AC adapter into the notebook, and then connect the AC adapter to a working power supply.Perform any tests to verify the computer can startup and run in the Windows operating system.With the computer turned off, push the battery into the base enclosure until the retention clips click into position.
If the computer can access part of the memory, it may be possible to access the BIOS Setup Utility display and perform a memory self test to identify other memory issues. If the computer cannot boot to the BIOS Utility, try removing and reseating the memory and the hard drive, and then repeat the following steps to perform the memory self test.
1.Plug the AC adapter into the computer.
1.Turn off the computer.
1.Press the Power button to start the computer and repeatedly press the f10 key to enter the BIOS Setup menu.
1.In the BIOS Setup Utility, use the Right Arrow or Left Arrow keys to navigate through the menu selection to locate the Diagnostics .
1.Use the Down Arrow or Up Arrow keys to select Memory Test .
1.Press Enter , and then Yes to perform memory test.
1.After test completes, press f10 key to Save and Exit , and then press Enter key to Exit Saving Changes? .
If the test fails, one or more of the memory modules may not be seated properly. Check for and reseat loose memory modules.
What to do when the computer starts into Windows normally
After you have completed the troubleshooting process and your computer has booted normally into the Windows operating system, you should:Run HP Assistant to update HP software and drivers. Run Windows Update to update operating system and software.Run anti-virus program to remove any virus.

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.

Most likely a ram problem. Sometimes reseating the memory will fix the problem.

Remove and reseat the RAM On most notebook PCs, removing and reinserting the memory is a simple step and does not require advanced technical knowledge of the computer. HP recommends reseating the memory module before arranging for warranty service repair. If you are not confident following the steps for removing and replacing the memory module in this document, contact an HP support specialist for assistance.
NOTE: If someone other than HP installs or upgrades the RAM, any damage caused by the RAM and/or by the person when trying to install or upgrade the RAM is excluded from coverage under the product warranty. The customer assumes all risk and liability for damages for any such installation or upgrade.Some HP notebooks may have a secondary memory module located under the keyboard. For removal and replacement instructions pertaining to the second memory module contact an HP support specialist for assistance. WARNING: This product contains components that are easily damaged by Electrostatic Discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, set the notebook on a grounded surface that dissipates any static charge, and wear an ESD wrist strap that is connected to a grounded surface, like the metal frame of a PC. Use the following steps to remove and replace the memory modules. These steps should be repeated for each memory module installed in your notebook. Step 1 - Remove the battery
  1. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
  2. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.
Step 2 - Remove the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Use your finger or a flat head screw driver to lift the inside edge of the memory module and remove it.
    NOTE: When handling a memory board, use care to prevent touching the memory chips on the board. Touching the memory chips could damage or destroy the memory.
  4. Push both tabs outward simultaneously to release the memory module.
  5. Grasp the memory module by the edges and pull gently to remove it.
  6. After removing one module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
Step 3 - Reseat the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Locate the alignment slot on the memory module and align it to the empty board receptacle.
  4. Grasp the memory module by the edge and push gently to install it.
    NOTE: When handling a memory board, use care to prevent touching the memory chips on the board. Touching the memory chips could damage or destroy the memory.
  5. Press the expansion memory board down to latch the tabs.
  6. After replacing the module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
After the memory is reseated, connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook.
