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.)

According to the manual my sokets is  AM2+ The S/N is MXU8250339. i will like to upgrade my processor to max. Witch is the max processor that i can upgrade in this model, will a need a new heat skin and thermol passte. If so do i have to upgrade the Power Supply for this model. Can you send me that informaticon. Attach to this form is a screanshot of the spec of my desktop Thanks

A:Upgrade Processor HP Pavilion a6522f Desktop PC

Here is the link to upgrade CPU models. The "Phenom with Quad Core (Agena) technology (AM2+) up to 9600 (up to 95 watt)" seems to be the top model.  You will need new thermal paste, using the same heat sink.  The variation in power is only an added 6W. Here's a link (sold out) but look at the specs. Amazon should have it.  Do not get the Black Edition.

Can I upgrade Nvidia graphics card to latest cards or supported one from Nvidia.

The reason to change the graphics card is, it is over heating and crossing the 100 degree celsius which reports in black screen and suddenly crashes.

So anyone can tell me which is the suitable graphics card that will support HP Pavilion P6270IN Desktop .
What will be the upgrade process with new graphics card?

Please suggest.

Below is the Product information:
Link : HP Pavilion P6270IN Desktops
Prod: AU930AA#ACJ

Hardware Information:
Motherboard: IPIEL-LA3 (Eureka3)
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT220
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500

A:How to upgrade Graphics card of HP Pavilion p6270in Desktop PC

You have a PCI-e slot on your motherboard so theoretically you can fit any of the latest cards. It's not that simple though, for starters you only have a 300W PSU which will limit you to the most basic cards and is probably why a GT220 is fitted. You'd need at least a 450W PSU to run a decent card.
You only have a dual core CPU too which will bottleneck any of the latest nVidia cards.
Lastly is case size, some of today's cards are absolutely massive and the chances are most would be too big for your case.

One thing to try to get your GPU temperatures down is to remove the side panel from the case (with the power switched off and every external cable unplugged) and give the machine a good clean out with a soft brush and a can of compressed air. Dust build up can easily block the heatsink on the GPU (as well as other components) which will stop it from cooling properly.
Are you using this machine for gaming by any chance?

You might be wanting to get a whole new computer vs adding RAM, but it all comes down to what games your running and plan to run. Games that you have now that lag, memory added might increase load time by not having to have the games page so much overusing the hard drive, but frames per second will remain about the same I feel. What games do you run that you want better performance out of and what operating system version are you running and 32 or 64 bit?,157214.0.html

Hi  I have an HP Pavilion 550-279na. Whilst it suits most of my needs, I do enjoy the occasional game and have found that the GPU that it came with, the Radeon R5 330 is not providing enough 'oomph'. I have had a look around and think that the Nvidia GTX 750ti would probably fulfill my needs. Do you think that this card would fit in my PC? Also, I am guessing that the 180W PSU that it came with would not be sufficient to run a faster GPU, do you have any recommendations on size or model that would fit the Pavilion. My apologies if these are very lay questions, my hardware knowledge is not up to scratch! Thanks for any help. Charlie

I want to upgrade CPU to a 1gig on my HP Pavilion N3390 Notebook. Can someone explain to me what steps must be taken? After I buy the |CPU, where do I put it? How do I take apart the computer without breaking it?



A:HP Pavilion, how do I upgrade CPU

First of all will need to check the web site and see if you are able to "jump" from the current cpu to 1 gig. If not then at least look for a BIOS update.
Now since you have a laptop things will get a little dicey. Will need to get a cpu which is made for a mobile pc , then will need to acctually take the laptop apart to be able to reach the cpu ...
When it cames to laptops changing a cpu is more "funky" then a regular desktop...anyways if you're skilled with a screw drive will be able to take the laptop apart and get to the cpu , remove it , put the new cpu in then put the laptop back as it was..

You actually have the best motherboard in the series and it will handle 2d gen Intel Core CPUs, "Sandy Bridge", with bridge alive chip off i.e. switchable graphics. Up to i7-2640M. Your heatsink is the same as used on the i7 models so it is just a matter of removing the processor, replacing it with the better one you want, locking it down, applying thermal compound and putting everything back together. OK slight oversimplification.  See pages 79-85. Your Manual

Hi IshanIt'll take time for me to view the image as it has to be approved my moderators.The Samsung RAM you have now would be this I guess: problem in going in for 12gb if you want. But as I mentioned two identical RAMs have it's own benefits.Both the RAM you mentioned in previous post looks compatible. Check whether there are 8 Black memory chip banks on the RAM (physically) - look at their pics. Some have 4 memory banks even though the RAM configuration you need may be the same - they don't sometimes work in some HP laptops (from various feedbacks in this forum).RegardsVisruth

I am considering upgrading my HP Pavilion to Windows 10.  I consulted HP's Web site and was advised that "HP has tested your PC model and has determined that it can be upgraded to Windows 10, but there is information to review before moving forward." In the Section "Potential Feature Limitions/Intel precessors and Windows 7/8 32-bit I found this statement:"Computers configured with Intel Broadwell (Intel Core i3-5xxx, Core i5-5xxx, Core i7-5xxx; Pentium 38xx, Celeron 37xx/32xx) or Haswell (Intel Core i3-4xxx, i5-4xxx, i7-4xxx; Pentium 35xx, Celeron 29xx) processors and 32-bit versions of Windows 8.1 are not capable of upgrading to Windows 10 using the Windows Upgrade tool." My Pavilion runs an i3-4130 CPU and the 64-bit version of Wondows 7 Home Premium. In one place I am told I can upgrade to Windows 10.  The other place seems to suggest that I can't.  Please advise.

A:Can I upgrade my Pavilion 500 to Windows 10

Hi: The way I interpret the cautionary statement you posted is that only applies if you are running a 32 bit operating system on your PC, which you are not. It also says those PC's with those criteria can't use the W10 upgrade tool. I would imagine then folks in that circumstance could use the W10 media creation tool for 32 bit, by making the 32 bit DVD, and running the upgrade from the DVD on the windows desktop. I don't see any restrictions against doing that on the microsoft website below.

According the the Manufacturer details, you have a standard ATX PSU so as long as you stick with that, you can fit pretty much any inside your machine. It does look like the 300Watt version inside the machine is a bit short compared to normal PSU's, but as long as you still have space, it should fit just fine.

@pgking, welcome to the forum. The CPU's that are listed in the HP documents are the only ones that have been tested to assure they work.  Therefore, they are the only ones that are supported by HP and the motherboard.  All things equal, the A10-8850 should be the fastest one that is supported.  Upgrading the CPU is a bit more technical than upgrading the memory.  There are numerous videos online that will help you. If you want to add some additional performance, I suggest considering a SSD.  I will never have a computer without a SSD as the boot drive. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Hello, I have hp pavilion 15-ab226na and would like to upgrade hdd to ssd drive. The big question is if I do that myself will I lose the remaining time of warranty? If yes Is there any possibility to ask HP for assistance with this?

A:hp pavilion 15-ab226na SSD upgrade

Here is the Manual: Manual Page 49 and the material just before it shows how to access the hard drive area. It is not terribly hard to do but if the laptop is under warranty it does jeopardize it. If the upgrade is done without damage it will not generally affect the warranty. You can contact an HP Service Center in your area but this would be a paid service and they will not install 3rd party hardware so you would have to buy an SSD from HP, which will be above market pricing. However, it would keep your warranty for sure if you have HP do it. A decent computer tech shop will also be able to do it. Post back if you need any more help. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I will be glad to help you. I looked at the specs for the motherboard and the video card.  The motherboard only supports PCI E 1 and the video card is PCI E 3.0.  The video card will fit in the slot but will only run at PCI E 1 speeds. I know this ios not what you wish to hear, you still can upgrade the video card and the power supply but will not improve the performance. Please keep me informed of how things went. If you require further assistance, let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help you.Please let me know if this resolves the issue by marking this post as "Accept as Solution".To simply say thanks, click the Thumbs up below!  Thanks.

A:RAM Upgrade for HP pavilion 15-n209TX

I don't know the market in India at all. When I say no-name memory I mean literally no-name memory. It will just have the speed stamped on it no other identification. If you mix modules you lose dual channel operation which means the memory can transfer 10-15% less information per cycle. While generally, the more memory the better, but it is also true you want it to be faster. Very few computer users really need more than 8 gigs. Hence most people would be better off with 8 gigs in dual channel than 12 gigs in single channel mode.  This memory would work fine and would be functionally identical to the module you have:

A:HDD to SSD upgrade for HP Pavilion 15 n-012ss

Hi, Good evening. Please download the first manual on the following first: Very simple. Please use the following steps 1. Buy new SSD. You can use any standard 2.5" SSD for laptops today but please try Crucial, Samsung, Sandisk ... other brands may not work (from my tests anyway). Try 1GB for future growth.2. Clone existing HDD to new SSD using many free clone software   I did test few times using the first one (AOMEI Backupper). It worked as designed 100% 3. Swap HDD and SSD using informtion from the above manual. Regards.

Hi: Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook. Supported memory info can be found in chapter 1 on page 1. Max RAM is 2 x 4 GB of PC3-1333 (PC3-10600).  You can install PC3-12800, but as you see from the manual it will only run at 1333 MHz as that is the max speed of any of the processors installed. A single 8 GB chip will not work, let alone two. Paul

Hi all My parents have an HP Pavilion entertainment laptop that frankly didn t run well when it was new but is really struggling to open programs now I am thinking of putting in an SSD as a boot drive and moving the HDD into the optical bay and upgrading the RAM to the max of Also possibly Pavilion 1100? HP dv6 Should upgrade I upgrading to Windows I think would confuse them My dad does a lot of photo editing using Lightroom Other than that it s basic word excel amp Internet browsing only Is it worth it for me to put a few hundred dollars I figure about into the laptop or should they look for a new desktop instead It would be worth it to me to extend the life of the laptop with a view to buying new down the road Here are the current specs HP Pavilion dv t- GB RAM Intel Core Duo T Should I upgrade HP Pavilion dv6 1100? Ghz bit Vista ATI Mobility Radeon HD Thank you nbsp

A:Should I upgrade HP Pavilion dv6 1100?

I would keep the HDD, clean install Windows 7 (check out this article for help:, it is for Windows 8, but the same applies to Win 7), and upgrade the RAM. I wouldnt add an SSD because your CPU is pretty old and the SSD will be bottlenecked by it and therefore it would not help. I recommend Clean installing Windows over the SSD because clean installing gives the "New" PC feel to old hardware like an SSD does to semi-new PCs. The RAM will also make a huge difference. After you clean install Windows, report back and ill tell you what drivers you need (you only really need a display driver).

I think it is a good choice to wait for a new laptop down the road. This upgrade will gain you a few years, but dont expect to game on it. Keep in mind, clean installing Windows will delete all of your data! So use these sites to help assist you in your back up adventure: (For Windows 7, but Vista is basically the same I think).
I recommend this less since it transfers old settings (which can be causing the performance hit you are experiencing) to the new install:

Windows 7 will set you back a hundred bucks: 7
But it is worth the upgrade. If you are a student you can sometimes get discounts thru Microsoft but since they want to separate themselves from Win7, they may not offer this anymore. But they still do for Win8, but it is hard to find an institutions other than universities.

Use this tool to find out what RAM supports your system: (tell me if the link doesnt work since I am running OS X now and it automatically sends me to the download for OS X, so I cut off some of the URL)

Finally, install the Catalyst Software Suite after you have clean installed Windows 7 and added the RAM:

Keep in Mind: You should install the newest BIOS revision for your laptop before upgrading to Win 7 to avoid errors:

Hey. I have a few questions RE. installing RAM.

I am looking to upgrade my computer's RAM. I would just like to know how would I find out what RAM is compatable with my computer.

It has 256MB DDR SDRAM (266MHZ) already installed.
I have checked wtih numerous RAM sites and they never have my model in their compatibility database.
I have read somewhere that it can handle 2GB of RAM. I'm not sure how many slots for RAM I have but if I had 2, would it be safe to just add 526MB or do you have to do it in equal installments of 256/512 each slot?

Also is there any shops around Melbourne (Australia) that anyone can recommend to me for buying RAM? Either online (even overseas) or not.

Also is the anti-static wrist strap necessary, if so could I just make one?

Sorry aobut all the questions, but thanks in advance.

A:RAM upgrade for HP Pavilion t550a

The details of what you want in the way of RAM are here:

RAM 256/3200 MB 400 DDR SDRAM ([email protected])
Maximum 2 GB (2x1024MB DDR SDRAM)
Sockets Two 184-pin DDR DIMMs
Size 128, 256, 512 AND 1024 MB DDR DIMMs

As long as you observe sensible anti-static procedures, its not essential to use a strap but you should know what you are doing. That you ask perhaps suggests you have not done this before?

Its often easier to take the box into a computer store and have them fit the RAM, it costs next to nothing and if it does not work, you have some redress.

Does this computer support RAM upgrades (to its supposed 16 GB max)? Listed in Amazon reviews for the unit an exerpt from the manual that seems to suggest downgrade to DDR3 1333 is necessary for dual channel ram performance.  of course, skylake processors are not rated to interface with regular power DDR3 and are supposed to be damaged over time because of the power differential. I don't necessarily need to upgrade to 16 GB of ram, I just want to know if it is possible (and safely so for the CPU). Thanks!

This might not be easy because I don't think that HP uses the ATX form factor. Many of the motherboards mentioned here are ATX boards, which has holes in certain places that match the back board it rests on. I'll have to look deeper into this one.

If your power supply unit is below 450 watts, you may need to upgrade.

Hi: The GeForce Go 7600 is a Windows 7 capable graphics adapter and should be able to run all the eye candy in Windows 7 and have the same resolution as you had in XP. Try the last driver nVidia released for it. I see you have a wide screen monitor...Depending on your screen resolution, with the proper driver it should be able to be set to 1440 x 900.  That should give you the view you expected. 3 GB usable memory with a 4 GB max RAM capacity is perfectly normal-even with a 64 bit OS. You need the Intel 965 chipset in order for the 64 bit OS to "see" all 4 GB of memory. You have the 945 chipset. Paul

can i upgrade ram of my labtop hp pavilion dv6-6199ee from 8g to 16g?

A:hp pavilion dv6-6199ee ram upgrade

Hi, The following link shows its specs:    It clearly says :   Upgradeable to 8 GB DDR3 (means max 8GB). But the Maintenance and Service Guide says, it uses Intel processor (CPU) therefor you can upgrade to 16GB (page 5): Please use right part on page 66 of the above manual or at least same specs. Regards.

What is the stock card? How old is this HP Pavilion? I don't see any references to a stock card on the HP site, or a wireless socket.
Looks as if you will have to install a PCMCIA wireless card. Easy enough, and low in cost.

Hello everyone,

Someone needs to upgrade their memory and video card. He has a HP 8562 Pavilion, it currently has 64MB SDRAM memory and a 8MB NVIDA Vanta 3D AGP Graphic Card.

He wants to upgrade to at least 256 of RAM and just an average video card: $50-85.00

What do you guys suggest?

A:Upgrade for a HP 8562 Pavilion?

For RAM go to and eneter his system info and they'll recommend the correct RAM. Their prices are good too. If its Windows 9X get a 256MB chip to add to the 64MB, if its 2000 or XP get at least 512MB of RAM.

Does he play games? If not then leave the Vanta. If he does play games:

The first two offer DirectX 9.0 support and 128Mb of RAM, the third is a 64MB Ti4200 which is getting old but still holds its own very well.

Hello everyone.I own a laptop HP Pavilion 15-e073ea and I'd like to buy additional RAM. The memory I have installed now is Kingston HP16D3LS1KBG/4G.As I cannot find such memory in any shop in my country, I'd like to know what other memory get I install?I found two similar RAM modules in my local shop and these are:1) Kingston 4GB [1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM 1.35 V ( Kingston 4GB [1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM SRx 8 ( there any significant difference between these models? Should I buy on of these or maybe some other?I saw that my memory has written 1Rx8 on it if that has a meaning.Regards, Lucas

A:HP Pavilion 15 memory upgrade

This is what you have now: The key thing here is that it is high density (4 black blocks) and low voltage (1.35 volts) 1600 mhz  The first link you gave says the memory can run at 1.35 or 1.5 volts, which is true for all low-voltage memory but it does not work the other way around. 1.5 volt memory cannot run at 1.35 volts.  So it looks like the first memory you linked will work, but I cannot be sure on the second; it does not state the voltage. I would avoid it.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Can any one tell me if i can max out my Motherboards ram or any type of upgrade i can do.

HP Pavilion 17-g121wm

Right now i have a total of 8 gigs installed.

I think i can go a step further to 16 gigs of ram but i am not sure.

A:Hp Pavilion 17-g121wm Ram Upgrade

Check your manual. Or visit and see what its wizard says. It looks like it does support 2 x 8GB but note 8GB is generally considered the "sweet spot". That is, less RAM and you see a drop in performance, more RAM and the gains will be marginal at best - if noticeable at all.

You might do better finding noticeable performance gains by migrating to a SSD. Upgrading graphics often provides significant gains, but often requires a bigger PSU to support the more power hungry graphics card.

Much depends on what you do with this computer.

Hello,I am trying to decide whether it's time to buy a pc or upgrade my pavilion. The specs on the website show cpu upgrades that will fit my mobo and it shows an AMD Athlon X2 (Bt) will fit. It's a 3 core 3.1 ghz vs the quad core 2.2 ghz that it came with. I use my pc for warcraft mainly and my pcs specs should run it fine for the upcoming expansion aside from the cpu speed. I know that the game won't use more than 2 cores so I figure the CPU should be a decent upgrade. Is my thinking correct? Would there be problems swapping a quad core for a 3 core or will everything be compatible? Any info or thoughts woukd be appreciated. Thanks

Hello guys, I am planning to buy the HP Pavilion 15-au006tx. Wanted to know whether this has an M.2 Slot to add a Boot SSD? -Jenson

View Solution.

A:HP Pavilion 15-au006tx M.2 SSD upgrade possible?

We get this question a lot and right now I cannot advise anyone to buy an HP laptop with the idea of adding an M.2 drive to it when it did not ship with one. There are a couple long-running threads here, one of which seems to have concluded that on certain models the M.2 port is disabled in the BIOS, and another has shown that a model which shows an M.2 slot in the Service manual in fact has no such slot. See p. 34 of the Service Manual: Manual It appears from this Manual that you can have either an M.2 mSSD or a hard drive since it refers to an SSD board and cable. It's also clear that if you can use an M.2 mSSD you are limited to the SATA variety, which has no speed advantage over a 2.5 inch SATA SSD. I would buy it, since the specs are very good and swap the 1 TB 5400 rpm HDD for a 1 TB SATA-III SSD and if 1 TB is not enough storage for you consider putting the 1 TB HDD in an optical caddy. Who uses a DVD drive these days, anyway? If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hello!I am using a HP Pavilion dv6000 notebook, with a 32-bit Vista business, 2 processors of Genuine Intel with 1.73GHz each, and only 1GB of RAM. I would like to upgrade the RAM to 4GB, but I don't know if that's possible, and/or how to do that. I hope you guys can help me.Thanks.

A:How to upgrade RAM on HP Pavilion dv6000 ?

We need to know the exact model number from the tag on the bottom of the laptop. You can then just check by model number with Crucial at to check max memory specs. Some of the dv6000s max at 2 gigs as you likely already know. 2 gigs is dirt cheap and would be a major improvement. With 32 bit Vista even if you install 4 gigs only 3 will be available for Windows to use. So 2 gigs is your best bet anyway. The difference between 1 gig and 2 is huge, the difference between 2 and 3 is negligible, in my opinion.

HI @dmbennett, Welcome to the HP Forum! It is a terrific place to find answers and tips! For you to have the best experience in the HP forum I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide: First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More..  What is your specific model of Pavilion x2? HP Notebook PCs - How Do I Find My Model Number, Serial Number or Product Number? I grasp that you are trying to upgrade to Windows 10 and discovered you required more space, You installed a SD card and downloaded the upgrade to the SD card. When you rebooted your notebook you got the message " 'Please insert the external storage mediate and press OK". As you are unable to load Windows, I would do a recovery back to factory settings and then retry the upgrade.  Here is a link to HP PCs - Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows 10)to assist you with that process.

I have tried to upgrade the laptop (pavilion dv3 4060es) cpu from i3 350M to i7 740QM.When I plug the processor I get no video.I have the latest bios intalled (F.23, march 2016)The service manual indicates the i7 740QM as a compatible processor.Is it a compatible processor?.Do I have to configure something in BIOS before upgrade? 

A:Pavilion DV3 4060es CPU upgrade

No you made a very common error. You can't just look at the list of processors and assume any one of the processors will work in all versions of that model series. Look at page 17 of the manual. The different system boards are listed as follows: For use only with Intel Core Quad processors 611348-001For use only with Intel Core Dual and Core2 processors 599414-001For use only with Intel Core Quad processors (1-GB) 622627-001For use only with Intel Core Dual and Core2 processors 622626-001 So in order to install a Quad processor you need a Quad motherboard. The fan and heatsink is the same. HP no longer has the boards in stock so you would need to find one on eBay or contact an HP reseller: I took a quick look and came up empty but a little harder search might turn up something.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.
