Example: Pavilion 15-n201ax: gpu and ram upgrades

Hello, I want to k now can I put my laptop (Pavilion 15-n201ax) gpu and ram? Thanks in advance!


Number on the GPU. You already have the top of the page mother/processor board and there is no way to add or replace it with a better graphics in any system. On memory, you have 8 GB. This is the Manual:

Link repair manuals

Officially, the maximum is 12 concerts but here users have reported success with 16. You do not have an easily accessible memory Bay and you should have an open memory slot to add a SO-DIMM DDR3L-1600 to upgrade memory. I seriously doubt you will see much of a difference, but I have 16 gigs in my laptop then I say, go ahead.

  • 15 - ak002nl: HP Pavilion Gaming GPU and RAM upgrade 15-ak002nl

    Hi all!

    I was wondering if I can improve my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 M (4 GB dedicated DDR3L)

    with a more powerful GTX 960M (DDR5)


    If my motherboard supports DDR4 ram

    Thank you very much



    1. don't you cannot replace the video card. The series has only 2 options (depending on the CPU):

    Switchable discrete graphics:

    • N16P-GT from NVIDIA (GeForce 950 M) up to 4096 MB of dedicated video memory (256Mx16 DDR3 900 MHz x 8 PCs, 1 GHz, 900 MHz bridge) (Skylake-H)
    • N16S-GT from NVIDIA (GeForce 940 M) up to 2048 MB of dedicated video memory (256Mx16 DDR3 900 MHz x 4 PCs, 1 GHz, 900 MHz bridge) (Skylake-U)

    2 no, it ONLY supports DDR3L RAM. Please note: DDR4 RAM does not have slots DDR3 and DDR3L.

    Kind regards.

  • Pavilion 550-279na: GPU and PSU upgrade for Pavilion 550-279


    I have a HP Pavilion 550-279na. While it fits most of my needs, I enjoy the occasional game and found that the GPU that is it came with, the Radeon R5 330 does not offer enough "oomph".


    I had a quick glance and think that the Nvidia GTX 750ti would probably answer my needs.

    Don't you think that this card would fit in my PC?

    Also, I guess 180W POWER supply that it came with is not sufficient to run a faster GPU, you have any recommendations on the size or model that would suit the Pavilion.

    My apologies if these are very secular issues, my knowledge of material isn't at the height!

    Thanks for any help.



    Your PC has the correct UEFI BIOS.

    The GTX 750Ti requires a minimum 300 Watt power supply.

    You must measure the space available along the existing graphics card and compare it to the length of the backup. The 750 is 5.7 inches long. The 750 is a dual slot card. Make sure you have room and you can check out a second plate of Panel rear I/O to install the card.

    It must fit unless it's really tight in your chassis with the existing card.

    Same problem with the power supply. Verify that you can install a power supply 350 Watt or 400 watts.

    I prefer modular Corsair or Seasonic power switching.

    Make sure that you disable secure boot and enable the legacy boot in the BIOS.

    Also to uninstall all of the AMD graphics drivers and software before you install the card GTX 750.

    See you soon!

  • Pavilion dv7-2050sm: SSD and RAM upgrade questions


    I have two question about upgrading my laptop. I use it for web surfing, movies, some excellent/word work etc... for the most part on a regular basis.

    (1) I have seen that my RAM can be upgraded to 8 GB. Currently, I am working at 1333 MHz 4RAM. If I buy 2 x 4 GB 1600 MHz will it work on this laptop, I went into the BIOS and have not seen that I can change the speed of ram anywhere nor has seen how much can this support for portable computers, so should I buy 1x4Go 1333 MHz instead if it only supports 1600 MHz.

    (2) can I put my disk HARD 700 GB Seagate 5400 RPM SATA II 3.0 Gbps with Samsung 850EVO 250 GB SSD? I know that SATA III drives are retro-compatible meaning can work on SATA II but is it useful, how much speed will I use if my laptop does not support SATA III.

    Laptop computer product number: B4E42EA

    Chipset: AMD A70M FCH

    CPU: Improved A6 4460 M to 4600 M A10

    Thank you!

    It will not run at 1600 mhz just so buy another 4 GB of DDR3-1333 memory. The SSD is the best upgrade you can do. Certainly worth. SSD SATA-III will work fine on a SATA-II bus. There is very little difference in actual operation.

  • Pavilion g6-2202tx C0P15PA: upgrade: g6-2202tx C0P15PA Pavilion: backlit keyboard, battery and RAM


    Product name: g6-2202tx Pavilion

    Product number: C0P15PA

    Location: Mumbai, India.

    I want to update my laptop ram and replace his keyboard.

    Laptop comes with 4 GB of ram which has 800 MHz frequency (you can pl confirm that?).
    As product specifications page indicates that frequency of 1600 MHz is supported by the motherboard, I'll buy extra 4gigs of memory at 1600 MHz. Sera - what a good choice, or despite the frequency of 1600 MHz, the two ram runs at 800 MHz? I would have to buy 8 GB memory at 1600 MHz. can you pl developed on the same.

    Secondly, I have "keyboard full size style Island w / pad" keyboard, which is not backlit. and I really need a backlit keyboard, I can replace the keyboard with a backlit keyboard of HP. If Yes, can you pl tell me the process? Is the laptop motherboard supports backlit keyboard? will I need to update the firmware and driver for the same? I can buy a market?

    Backup of my laptop battery has significantly reduced. In recent days, I also get a message at startup, which suggests for the replacement of the battery. Where can I buy a new battery? What specifications I need to know to buy a battery compatible, true.

    My laptop is under warranty HP on site. (the battery is not under warranty, as collateral for the battery has expired.)

    How does the whole scenario fits with the product under warranty.

    Here's the product specifications for the HP Pavilion p6717me desktop PC.  Based on the specifications, there are 3 things that you could upgrade to improve the performance of your game (and global).  I have them listed in the recommended order.

    1 update RAM: your unit comes with 4 GB of RAM, you should move it to 8, 12 or 16 total (16 GB MAX).

    2 GPU (video card) update: I highly recommend the upgrade of your GPU.  You can get any PCI Express x 16 card which physically fits in the slot.  The only limitation here is your power supply (PSU) offering only 300W of power.  Most of the best graphics cards require a minimum of 450-500W of power.   The power supply is a standard ATX power supply, so you should be able to upgrade easily if you want to upgrade the video card.

    3 update CPU: your device comes with an Intel i5 CPU and it could be upgraded to an i7 processor.  Models and information are listed in the connection of the plug above.

  • HP 15-AC053TX: 15-AC053TX of HP linux dual boot and RAM upgrade question


    I want to buy HP laptop computer 15-AC053TX for VMS running on the science of data/data. I have the following questions

    (1) will require computer support dual-boot Linux OS like Ubuntu and CentOS 64-bit?

    (2) can I upgrade RAM 16 GB? Can I pre-order with a configuration upgrade or should I upgrade later through Service to the HP customer care?

    All entries will be appreciated.

    Thank you


    It has 8 gigs in a single module, so all you have to do is add another module of 8 GB to 16. This particular model is a specific configuration and HP do not at this level off the coast of this issue of model, but you can order the same thing as a custom to order and get 16 gigs. If not upgrade memory isn't too hard on that one, and the upgrade, it'll be cheaper.

    See p. 46 here:

    Repair manuals

    Manual specifications say it tops out at 8 gigs, but this has been proven incorrect and tackling the 16 concerts if you put two x 8 concert DDR3L-1600 modules.

    Yes, you can dual boot a modern Linux distribution. Ubuntu 64 bit 15.04 and 15.10 will work off UEFI and Secure Boot for example and allow you to install right next to Windows 10 using the grub bootloader to choose your operating system at startup.

  • The SSD and RAM upgrade

    I have the 13-inch Retina Display early 2015 model. It contains 128 GB SSD and 8 GB of RAM.

    I wanted to update both of them. Is this possible? I agree with HARD drive even if that is supported. 128 GB is not enough for me actually.

    Help, please.

    Without the SSD and RAM are both not upgradable.

    One option is to sell your computer and use the money to buy a new one with the features you need.

    There are two options to add an HD card to your card HD slot. Both options will be flush with the case.

  • Satellite S3000-214: HD and RAM upgrade

    I want to upgrade a Satellite S3000-214 with a new hard drive and RAM.
    Anyone know how I can upgrade the HD? It is currently only 20 GB.
    About the RAM, I tried to upgrade before but abandoned after Misco sent me upgrades wrong a few times. Does anyone know a supplier who could have a sales team could sell me the good memory?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It is possible to upgrade the HDD up to 30 GB.
    The BIOS should recognize this format without any problem. You can use a simple 2.5 bus master IDE HDD.

    It is also possible a memory upgrade for max 1024 MB

  • Satellite L30-10 x and RAM upgrade


    IM missing to know where and how to upgrade RAM in Satellite L30 - 10 x. I would like to switch to 2 GB (maximum) and also upgrade to vista Home premium.
    Can anyone help?

    Thank you


    To upgrade of RAM on this laptop model is very simple. Memory locations are under the memory cover. Remove cover memory placed in the lower corner of your laptop (in the middle) and you will have access to these two RAM slots.

    If you want to use max RAM I recommend to buy compatible DDR2 400/533 1 GB module with the PA3411U-1M1G part number.
    Vista upgrade should be no problem at all. On the Toshiba support page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > download & support, you can find the Vista drivers, tools and utilities for your Satellite L30 (PSL33E).

    Good luck!

  • Split X 2 HDD and RAM upgrade

    I recently bought a HP Split X 2 of Best Buy, and I like it so far.  I read in the preliminary comments for this product that the CPU can be i3 or i5, RAM can be upgraded up to 8 GB and a hard drive can be placed in the keyboard.  I realize that it is a new product, but is anyone know yet if these upgrades can be done after purchase?  My Split X 2 is now configured with 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB memory SSD and an i3.

    Thank you for your attention.


    It's a list of the available configurations:


    I think that the keyboard is too thin for a HDD normal and based on the following link you can ONLY put SD card keyboard (item #4):

  • problems with wireless after the motherboard, cpu and ram upgrade adapters

    As the title says, I have recently updated my card mother, cpu and ram (increased from Asrock extreme6 z77/i7 3770 k/Kingston 8 gb hyperx for EVGA ftw/i5 z97 4670 k/g. Skill ripjaw x 16 gb). I always use the same installation of Windows 7 64 via the same SSD. After I was installing new equipment, I used the disc that comes with the motherboard and installed all the drivers that were available (twice, just to be safe). All the features of the OS I had before seem to be there except to exit Device Manager to correctly install the drivers for my wireless (Linksys AE1000 and TP Link N900) adapters. I downloaded the current driver for the Linksys Web site and I have the disc for the TP-Link and I tried several times to install, but keep the same message ' Windows found driver software for your device, but has encountered an error trying to install it. Device Manager recognizes the device and it is not any question of State symbol (IE yellow triangle, etc.) that is displayed in conjunction with an adapter. I tried disable/re-enabling and uninstall/re-installing times and keep having the same problem. I tried to search in several forums of people with similar problems, but none of the resolutions seem to work or are suitable for my situation. Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


    When you upgrade your motherboard, cpu and ram, drivers for particular devices may not be related to other drivers. That's why I suggest you to install all the drivers for the chipset from the manufacturers website and see if that helps.
