Memory Problem

bad sticks there, BSOD screens? finding good memory for such and old PC is not easy did you buy them direct from Crucial or Kingston, ? or off fleabay.? memory must match the MMC, chip, memory managers. and the specs are not trivial. at all. if it runs on the old sticks and not on the new,? why wonder why, ( answer wrong sticks or bad sticks.) #1 reason for this is memory #2 is XP (and bad drivers to it) bsod-nqnsjpy5mxjchhsl14xy30wr-1-0.jpg buy from Crucial? btw, why not test the sticks 1 by 1, see which one is bad, and if all are identical (new set) then all can be bad if using wrong sticks. speed (too slow, faster is ok) density rules, lots,... the older the CPU the worse this gets. HP dropped all support on A-nnnnn PCs so the pages showing all memory that work is gone now. leaving only top memory makers are authorities no same. I say ask them. in all cases this old PC.

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

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>

Monitor, keyboard and mouse not working HP Pavilon

Sounds like a component has gone bad on the computer. If you have a dedicated video card, I'd replace that first. Otherwise, it's likely the motherboard has gone bad and needs replaced. If this is the case, it's going to be just as expensive to replace the board as it would be to get a newer system.

Hp pavilion a1330n fan runs, nothing else happens

A lot of HP Pavilion laptops suffered from improperly installed VGA chips on the motherboard which did not have properly thermal control. Overtime the chip will partially or entirely lose contact from the motherboard and you will experience this symptom. This started with early 2007ish Pavilion DV2000, 6000, and 9000 series laptops, but has been an ongoing issue in several models since. A repair is possible, but NOT by baking your motherboard or using a thermal heatgun. You need to take it to a lab with an infrared REFLOW machine to properly REFLOW the solder from the VGA chip to the motherboard. Going rates are from $75 to $150 flat for the job. Good luck

My hp pavilion a1330n will not turn off

Press and Hold the Power Button until it turns off. It's a desktop, once you pull the power cord, it's got to turn off because there is no other power source.If it stalls and does not shut down when you do a normal shutdown inside the computer's software then try running the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine. If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear. In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Unplugged power to move now ethernet wont work

Hello,If the card from the other pc fits the slot, then it should work fine. Look at the card before you install it in the 1330n and note the model number in case you have to download a driver for it. You can also go to hp.com and search for the network card driver for the m7650n. Let me know if you still have problems with it.Joe

Hello my hp a1330n wont

Inspect the motherboard for loose components. A loose or missing CPU, BIOS chip, Crystal Oscillator, or Chipset chip will cause the motherboard not to function. Also check for loose or missing jumper caps, missing or loose memory chips (cache and SIMM's or DIMM's). To possibly save you hours of frustration i'll mention this here, check the BIOS Setup settings. 60% of the time this is the cause of many system failures. A quick fix is to restore the BIOS Defaults. Next, eliminate the possibility of interference by a bad or improperly set up I/O card by removing all cards except the video adapter. The system should at least power up and wait for a drive time-out. Insert the cards back into the system one at a time until the problem happens again. When the system does nothing, the problem will be with the last expansion card that was put in.Switching power supplies (the most common used PC's), cannot be adequately field-tested with V/OHM meters. Remember: for most switching power supplies to work, a FLOPPY and at least 1 meg of memory must be present on the motherboard. If the necessary components are present on the motherboard and there is no power:
    1) check the power cable to the wall and that the wall socket is working. (You'd be surprised!) 2) swap power supply with one that is known to work. 3) if the system still doesn't work, check for fuses on the motherboard. If there are none, you must replace the motherboard.
If the motherboard cannot configure to a particular peripheral, don't automatically assume a bad motherboard, even if the peripheral checks out on another machine -- especially if the other machine has a different BIOS revision. Check with the board manufacturer to see if a BIOS upgrade is available. Many BIOS upgrades can be made right on the MB with a FLASH RAM program provided by the board maker. See our BIOS page for more information.

    I tried replacing my sata

    yes the 2 computers are different. Different processors, different memory,different graphics card.To get your ide drive from your hp pavilion a510n to work in your hp pavilion a1330n, you will have to completely re-load the drive when it is installed in the hp pavilion 1330n. Then it will work fine, but you will not be able to use that drive in your hp pavilion a510n. because you will have the same problem but in reverse.
