Preferred Solution: Can I upgrade the RAM of my HP-Pavillion Notebook

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have tried twice to upgrade my HP Pavillion DV4 notebook to a Samsung 840 Solid State Drive and the two times it only shows a "J" while trying to boot. The first time I used the Migrate OS to SSD option in Minitool Partition Wizard. The second time I used the copy disk option, with the same result. Has any1 been successful in upgrading to a SSD? if so, which application was used? TIA. Manny

Hello. I have a HP Pavillion 15 Notebook PC product number: J1X37EA#AB9  with Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz 2.60GHz, RAM: 12,0 GB, Windows 10 64-bits and in what comes to graphics i have Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400 and a NVidia GeForce 840M. I believe my intel graphic card is integrated in the board but the Nvidia one can be upgraded. Am I wrong or can I really upgrade my graphics card?

Hi, Unfortunately the Nvidia chip is integrated and not an upgradeable component - this is the case for most consumer class notebooks. Regards, DP-K

Hi: Run this free hardware analyzer that I have zipped up and attached below. Run the file, close the summary window and on the left side of the window, click to expand the Drives section. Then click to expand the sata/atapi drives section. Click on your hard drive name listed there.  The first line will be the Drive Controller spec. It will report the hard drive type running at a certain speed. For example Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 6 Gb/s. If your notebook only has a SATA II port, it might report Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s, or Serial ATA 3 Gb/s  @  3 Gb/s.

I am considering buying this laptop at "Office Depot" today. In your expert opinion, guys, is this a good laptop for basic needs? I just need it for a small business situation. I have Office 2003 software to load on it. A techy friend of mine said I may want more speed on the processor but for $949 w/ rebates I think it's a lot of bang for the buck!

Hello,I was recently given a pavillion dv9821ea laptop which was in bad shape after being infected with a virus. I eventually had to replace the hard drive and at the same time I upgraded the operating system to windows 7 PRO 64bit. I was unable to save nothing from the origonal hard drive, no drivers, HP software etc and since I installed Windows 7, the laptop seems to have several problems including not downloading Windows updates. I connect it to the HP assistant, but this recognises the laptop and only gives me the choice of Windows Vista as the operating system for which to support drivers etc. I wonder if you could help me by letting me know if there is anywhere I can download Windows 7 pro 64bit drivers for this laptop? my wife and I are both disabled and it would make a great difference to me if I could have full use of this laptop. Regards. Gerald

A:Drivers for Pavillion dv9821ea entertainment notebook

Hi, Gerald: HP did not support that model for W7, and you should be able to use the Vista drivers from the dv9821ea support page except the BIOS and firmware files. Additionally, you can read this helpful dv9000 W7 upgrade guide for some tips on getting W7 to work just fine on that model.

A:Frozen touchpad and keyboard on HP Pavillion dv6 3225dx Notebook

If you have (and should have) a USB keyboard and mouse connect them and see if they will work.
Since your file system was already corrupted you cloned the bad files to the new drive.
If the USB devices work you should do a Repair Install.
If that doesn't work do this: Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options HP Pavilion dv6-3225dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support
From this tut:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

On newer models HP Recovery may offer a Minimized OS Recovery option when booting from F11, which retains only the OS, Recovery Manager, HP Support Asst, and HP Wireless LAN. This is as close to a clean reinstall as you can get without doing one yourself.
● If you clean reinstall only to C and leave all other partitions intact, F11 Recovery key should still work later if you need it.
● You can also Extract HP 3rd Party Software from RecovCD.
● Problems with volume control lighting and HP Quick Launch buttons have been dealt with here where you can also get further support.

A:SSD upgrade for Pavillion g6-2006ax

Here is the actual Manual for your laptop: Manual  Just ignore the memory replacement here: You can just replace the mechanical hard drive with a 2.5 inch wide and 7 or 9.5 mm thick laptop SATA SSD. Don't worry about transfer speeds. The newest, fastest ones will downclock to your SATA bus max speed. It will still be lightning fast compared to what you have. Best SSD on the market is a Samsung 850 Evo. It is what I have in my own laptop. You don't need to worry about BIOS settings or anything else. Just treat the SSD as a hard drive. If you get a large enough SSD we can help you just clone the old drive to the SSD or we can walk you through any of several ways to get an operating system, drivers and programs onto the SSD.  if this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi, recently I purchased a Pavillion 15-bc018nl (X7H34EA#ABZ).I want to upgrade it with a secondary hard drive using the M.2 port (empty) but I was unable to find the right type of M.2 device (Sata or Pcie).According to the "HP Pavilion Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide" these are the possible configurations:  but still I have no clue of what kind of M.2 ssd should I buy...Is the internal M.2 port SATA or PCIe?I have heard also that in some cases the M.2 port is not enabled. So my question is: how can I know if the M.2 port is enabled and which M.2 SSD is compatible with it?  Thanks very much for the help!

A:Upgrade M.2 SSD to Pavillion 15-bc018nl

Compatibility is the easy part. From the Service Manual, p. 2 we see that both SATA and PCI-e M.2 drives are supported: Manual Whether the M.2 will work is a guessing game. There is a very long thread here about some of the issues and I don't know if yours is one of the problem models. If you want us to see if your model is being mentioned as one of the ones with the disabled port we can, but the list does not seem to be static.

Is it possible to change my Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 with Intel Core 2 Duo T9900, Intel Core 2 Extreme X9100 or maybe Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9300 (quad core) ? Do I have to change cooling system or stock one is sufficient?  My current configuration:CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 2,53GHzRAM: 2x2GB DDR3GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4650 1GBHDD: Samsung EVO 850 SSDWindows 10 64bit Thanks in advance for answers. 

A:Pavillion DV6 1330 ec CPU upgrade

Here is the Service manual:  Manual IntelŪ Core?2 Duo T9900 3.06-GHz with 6-MB L2 cache and 1066-MHz front side bus (FSB)IntelŪ Core?2 Duo T9800 2.93-GHz with 6-MB L2 cache and 1066-MHz front side bus (FSB)Intel Core2 Duo T9600 2.80-GHz with 6-MB L2 cache and 1066-MHz FSB Those are your upgrade options and any of the above would be a major improvement. The T9800 and T9900 in particular are extremely strong. Equal to most 2d gen Core i5 processors in my opinion. The market knows that, however, and those processors tend to be hard to find and pricey. The T9600 is only a little less powerful and much more widely available and cheaper. The "X" model processors are a no-go.  let us know if you need more help.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I've got a hp pavillion 17 e153sa and recently upgraded the hd to an samsung 850 evo ssd. The chipset is the Intel HM86 Express which supports sata 3. I checked and the controller supports sata III but I'm only getting sata II speeds. The bios is up to date and seems to have no option to enable sata 3. I tried another sata 3 drive and that also runs as sata 2 so I'm obviously missing something. Does anyone know how I can enable sata iii for this model?

A:hp pavillion 17 e153sa upgrade

You say you are only getting SATA II speeds are you basing your concern on speeds or have you run something like CPU-Z or Sysoft Sandra to see what SATA version is actually in use?

HP Pavillion 8485Z.

I've tried a couple of different things here.

When upgrading from a plain disk (no OS) or when booting from the XP upgrade CD (with or without OS). The application loads some stuff and then proclaims "Setup is starting windows" and there it sits forever.

When launching it from the system with Win98 installed, it tells me that the CD is for upgrade only (in spite of what the written instructions say) and that it can't install because it can't find C:\Windows\WINNT32\Win9xUPG\W95UPG.DLL. Never mind that Win98 doesn't have a WINNT directory.

So what's the next step? Do I create this directory and attempt to find the DLL and copy it to it?

Help! and aTdHvAaNnKcSe.

I have just recieved my HP Pavillion 15t-bc000 in the mail today. I have an old DV6 that died and it has extra RAM that I put in it that I want to put into my new Pavillion. However, I have no idea how to do it. My old DV6 has a panel on the bottom that you can unscrew in order to easily access the RAM, wireless card, and hard drive. My new 15t-bc000 does not seem to have such a cover on the bottom. In fact, there isn't any cover on the bottom at all. It appears that I have to somehow revove the entire bottom shell just to get to the RAM or to remove the battery if I ever had to do so, but I'm not sure if that's even possible. Can I not put in more RAM into my new computer?

 Hi, The first thing to consider is that the hardware change may affect the warranty on your new laptop, the second is that 15t-bc000 uses specified memory is not compatible with the dv6 laptop RAM. Manual

A:Is it possible to upgrade the GPU on a HP Pavillion a6702f PC?

The specs show that it has a pci-e 16x slot for a video card.
Yes, technically it is possible however you have other issues to address;

1 Power supply. Big box systems like dell, hp, etc ship with a pw supply that is just enough to power the system as shipped. There is very little left for any upgrades that use more power ie video card.

2 Cooling. A gaming card is going to generate heat. You need to make sure your case has adequate cooling.

FWIW big box systems are not really upgradeable in any real sense. You can install more ram or maybe a larger hard drive however if you want to install a gaming card or more modern cpu, you are usually out of luck.

Was updating the software on my HP Pavillion dv6000 limited use laptop and found that there was a BIOS update available for it.  Since the current BIOS version on the laptop was F.22 and HP had BIOS version F.5A available since October 2014, I decided to download and update.  The BIOS update utility ran to completion without errors, starting at block 16 traversing backwards to block 1.  Once, complete it justdown the laptop.  But when I powered up the laptop, all lights illumination, the screen stays dark, no disk activity and no more laptop. Just a big paper weight now.  Any one have any Idea on how to revert the BIOS back, or just I just consider that I just lost a good working laptop?

Hi @bassman,Welcome to the HP Support Forums! From your description your issue is related to linking connecting to the Soundblaster audio card you installed using a USB interface to your TASCAM device. I am happy to help you with this. In answer to your question, I would advise you try the support forums both for your new Soundblaster card and probably your TASCAM device as well to see if there is some specific configuration required to link the two. TASCAM Support  - Worldwide Support - I hope that helps, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

As I went through the final stages of set up, it kept telling me to hook up the ethernet cable, the only option it gave me to connect to the internet. My PC came with a wireless card installed, which worked perfectly before the upgrade. I have searched everywhere and the wireless is just gone. It does not detect any wireless device at all. Help!

Hey Everyone,
I'd like to upgrade my Notebook hard drive to an SSD, what are some of the things I should be looking for to upgrade successfully, and will this affect my Windows 10 License?

A:How do I upgrade my notebook to an SSD

 For some people, upgrading a notebook to an SSD may be like diving into the deep end of a swimming pool. An SSD upgrade may involve extensive disassembly of your notebook, depending on the model. Some models have hard disks that are easier to access than others. There is the small, but important detail involving accepting the risk of damaging your notebook and violating the warranty. You will need to decide whether you want to migrate your OS to the new SSD or perform a clean installation of Windows. If you have already upgraded the notebook?s OS to Windows 10, your notebook will have a digital entitlement on the Windows licensing servers. That is Microsoft?s new licensing model which makes activation of the OS a seamless process. In the part of the installation where you see a box to put the twenty-five-character license activation key, there is a link below it that says, I don?t have a key.     That is what you should click on to continue the installation. The type of SSD that will be compatible with your notebook depends on a few things. The first is how recently your notebook came to market. The second is whether your notebook is an entry level or a high-end model with advanced features. The third is dependent on the interfaces present on your notebook?s system board. Your notebook may have only SATA ports or it may also have an M.2 or mini PCIe slot.  Older notebooks (pre-2009) will have only 2.5 SATA SSD products as an upgrade option.  It is also dependent on the SSD interface present on your notebook?s system board and the memory and controller type your notebook is compatible with.  That can be determined in a few ways. The simplest way that I know is to take the guesswork out of the upgrade purchase. That can be done by using information from a SSD manufacturer whose reputation depends on supplying accurate information to prospective clients. Check online at the website to see what they are offering as guaranteed compatible SSD products for your notebook. With newer models that are optionally delivered with SSD disks, the Maintenance & Service Guide for each notebook will generally state which memory and SSD drive type is compatible. The Maintenance & Service Guide that has that information can be found in the support portal for your notebook in the user guide section. Use your notebook?s product number + support  as keywords in a Google or other search engine search to find the portal. The Crucial memory website is a great place to find compatible SSD products for your notebook. What brand of SSD should I consider? Take a look at the following article. SSD Memory types Some of the 2015 and current model year high-end notebooks and ultrabooks are compatible with M.2 NVMe SSDs.They are currently the fastest type of SSD available.   At the following URL,s there are lists of HP?s M.2 compatible notebooks. The following URL has a list of notebooks that are compatible with mSATA SSDs.  Cloning utilities, such as Samsung?s Magician, Paragon Software?s Migrate OS to SSD 4.0 and Apricot?s EZ GIG IV will allow you to shrink the volume on the legacy disk to fit on your new SSD. USB to SATA cable for 2.5? SATA SSD  You may be one of the lucky ones who installs the SSD and boots to the installer and everything goes as expected. Otherwise, it may not be recognized by the Windows installer or the BIOS. Often, an SSD has to ...

I strongly suggest you forget about the idea. The difference isn't worth the trouble of the conversion, and it's frequently very difficult to swap processors in laptops.

Hi: There are no graphics 'cards' in your notebook.  The graphics are integrated into the motherboard, and the only way to upgrade the graphics would be to change the entire motherboard with one listed in the service manual for your notebook that may have better graphics. Doing that would be a labor intensive and expensive proposition.

I recently upgraded my home pc and am now wondering if I can replace the motherboard in a compaq notebook. does this involve soldering things in, or does it plug in like the towers?

here's what it does(compaq presario 1200, AMD K6-2 450 Mhz): I turn it on and the fan switches on, and the lights come on, but that is it. I hear no booting up noises, and nothing comes on the screen. when I put a cd in the drive, I hear it spin and read, but that is it. I tried using a startup disk, and tried replacing a small battery on the inside that I think is for BIOS. is it a motherboard problem, or processor, or other?

thanks for yourhelp

A:upgrade notebook motherboard?

NB motherboards are proprietary to the case they are built for. You will never find a motherboard to fit the case unles you have a couple hundred thousand dollard to hire a design team to make a motherboard upgrade for your notebook. You would more than likely be able to upgrade the processor and memory and that's about it.

Thanks for the quick reply.Never thought I would misunderstand the words "Switchable Graphics", but I never did get into geek speak. I would recommend that HP change the term to "Switchable Graphics But Not After You Buy It And Take It Home".

I brought my notebook into a computer tech and he tried to install 3 SSDs to no avail.  I would like to install a 120GB SSD if at all possible.  The error received was that it was unable to connect.  Two of the SSDS were Kingstons and the other one was a Toshiba.  My sense is that he did not seek to find out what SSDs were compabile with this laptop.  This computer originally came with Windows 8 installed.

Hi!I am using HP Pavilion 15 Notebok PC (F6C42PA#ACJ). It came with Win 8.1 preinstalled on a 1 TB HDD. I have upgraded the OS to win 10 and now want to upgrade my HDD to a SSD. I was wondering if Transcend TS256GSSD370S and Samsung Evo 850 is compatible with my laptop. Also how to enable AHCI mode? I don't see any such option in BIOS.Thank you.

A:How to upgrade your notebook to a SATA 2.5" SSD

Hey Erico,I see you here often, I was wondering if you can help me. I don't mean to hijack but it's somewhat related. I have an old Compaq Presario v300 and need to know if it will support an SSD. Also I don't seem to have an option in my bios for AHCI? Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thank you

picked up this USB SATA wire with the intent to hook it up to a Hard Drive I removed from a lap top and transfer the files to a new Hard Drive I installed in the lap top I'm sure you know where this is heading I had no clue what I was doing I bought the new Hard Drive at Best Buy along with the Upgrade wire brought them home and quickly removed the hard drive and replaced it with the new one I then quickly opened the Upgrade Kit bad idea Anyway this is the problem I returned the new hard drive and I was thinking they informed that the new hard drive had no operating system so it would not work unless I bought the software Also I was going to return the Upgrade kit but they would not take it back because they said I may Kit? Drive Notebook Upgrade have already installed the software that came with the kit I now have this Upgrade kit that I spent for and not quite sure what to do with it This leads to my question is there any way I can hook this wire up to the old hard drive that will not Boot and send it to my computer Then again there may be something in the hard drive that may compromise my hard drive Do I have any use for this Upgrade kit Sorry for the long drawn out post and many questions

I am not sure of the OS as its either one of the windows 8 versions (doing this for a friend) but I need to know the maximum amount of memory this laptop will accept 2 8's or 2 4's. As everyone knows it came with 1 4. I wish to max it out.Can anyone answer this?

I have a friend with a toughbook laptop and we have taken it apart to the core to find that the cpu is a standard 2.8v socket 7 p166mmx pentium cpu. we cannot find jumpers anywhere and wonder if there is any way to upgrade this chip to a 2.8v p233mmx or to one of these low volt socket 7 p266mmx cpus.

We would like to put in a k6-2 but see no way of configuring the chip. These units came stock with 100-166mhz pentium laptop and standard cpus so there must have been a way of "jumpering" them to run each chip

Any thoughts?


A:Panasonic CF-25 notebook cpu upgrade

Hmm, we just installed a pentium MMX 200mhz cpu and it works great but only at 166mhz like the old cpu.

There must be a way of reconfiguring the board with different multipliers as the laptop came with anything from a p100 to a p150. but the bios has no options for this and the motherboard itself does not have jumpers to change.

Any ideas?

Hi,I'm looking to upgrade RAM for this model - HP 15-af114AU purchased here - The max supported ram is 8GB (either 1x 8GB or 2x 4GB). The system already has 4gb, so is it better to add 1x 8gb or add 4gb? Would there be any compatibility issues? Would these modules be compatible? - I tried this but did not work hence cautious - in advance

What type of M.2 SSD is supported in the HP Notebook 15-ay013nr?  Can this unit support the Samsung 950 Pro 512GB NVMe SSD as an upgrade?

View Solution.

A:M.2 SSD upgrade for HP Notebook 15-ay013nr

This model can have either a hard drive or an M.2 mSSD but not both. There is a Solid State Drive board that adapts the mSSD to the same space in the laptop as a hard drive or full sized SSD. Since a SATA hard drive and the M.2 plug into the same connector I would say that you have to use a SATA M.2 mSSD and not a PCI-e version as you ask about. This is a brand new model with a Skylake processor so not easy to find information but here is the Service Manual: Manual See p. 56. So if you want the mSSD and you order the laptop with either a hard drive or 2.5 inch SSD you will also somehow have to locate the SSD board. I would just install a 2.5 inch SSD since I think the board will be hard to locate.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.
