HP Pavilion 500-242ea: Ram upgrade

Hi I have a desktop computer Pavilion 500 - 242ea 64-bit with 6 GB of ram installed 1 x 2 gb Hynix/Hyundai 1600 mhz and 1 x 4 gb Samsung 1600 mhz.

I would like to increase my ram by an additional 8 GB with a 2 x 4 GB - 1600 mhz cards in empty slots, all first is it possible and secondly what do you sugest?

My motherboard has four 240-pin ddr dimm sockets plug say this upgrade may be: -.

PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333) or

PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) or

PC3-14400 (DDR3-1866),

32 GB unbuffered memory total

I look forward to your response.


You can add memory for each vacant home.   I would add two DDR3 2048 MB PC3-12800 (800 mhz) to this system.  But if you wanted to add two 4096 modules, I see no problem.

    This is your computer .  Power supply is 300W.  PROCESSOR AMD A8-5500.  D 7560 AMD graphics card.

    COD Black Ops must these requirements.   Your CPU meets the corrected value.

    The graphics are a serious difference... the comparison here is.  560ti vs the 760 and both are 170W.

    You will need at least a 500W PSU, but again, I would see that a 600W Corsair associated with a card EVGA.

    Finally, you need 8 GB of memory of motherboard.  Just 6 GB. Not sure about your Setup, because there are 4 locations, and you have 6 GB installed... Run the CPUID CPU-Z to analyze the 4 locations.

  • Pavilion 500-242ea: x 5 component the Fans Running constantly - seems more noisy for me - is that true?


    Have had a unit of 500-242ea Office Pavilion, a little more than 12 months now, but I remember it is much quieter when I bought it

    Currently, all 5 fans operate constantly, which seems to be at full speed.  Is this good?  I'm not crazy, I know fans need to run components cool but I didn't know that all 5 had to operate at this speed!

    Notes: I'm not a gamer and do not exploit several programs at the same time, all that often, so do not insist on CPU etc.  The unit is clean / dust-free, inside and outside, and there is no problem of heat sink, I noticed

    Graphics card was recently replaced (due to grinding noise on start up) under warranty but replacement is not stronger than the previous unit

    Can anyone suggest, if it is possible to adjust, reset or control the fans via BIOS or if there is another way to reduce this noise nuisance?

    Thanks for the advice offered


    Being a "student of honour here, I don't know how to tag my question as"Resolved."

    In any case, for someone who is having a noisy fan problem, you can give what I've done, a go

    1 / restart PC Desktop, tapping f10 key as it works to begin with, it penetrates into the BIOS menu

    2 / take a look at all the options related to food.  I took a look at the "Thermal" CPU, but please note that I have not made no changes to anything!  I have not noticed, any menu for changing fan speeds

    3 / choose option "exit without saving the changes.

    > The Toshiba also recommends that RAM has quite ridiculous prices.

    Kingston modules are good quality RAM modules.
    Personally I always buy good quality RAM and I never had any problems of compatibility or performance.
    You can read here in the forum on the problems of compatibility as laptop RAM power not on after RAM upgrade or similar
    They always uses some modules at low cost.

    In general you can use the modules of DDR3 1066 MHz (PC3-8500).

  • HP Pavilion 500-326na: graphics upgrade on HP Pavilion 500-326na card

    Last year, I bought a HP Pavilion 500-326na, and recently, I decided that I would update the graphics card. The card that I'm looking is the nVidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti. This would be consistent with (and in the form of) my computer? In addition, I'm not sure exactly how I had to upgrade my power supply, if necessary, and if you can direct me to a decent choice.

    Thank you very much.

    SJ642, welcome to the forum.

    According to the Specifications of the product , the computer has an external power supply 180W (PSU).  If this is the case, you won't be able to level the video card.  The 750ti requires a power supply of at least 300 w; Some reported that 400W is needed to make it work properly.

  • Pavilion 500-138eo: GPU upgrade

    I intend to move the graphics card in my Pavilion 500-138eo Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 or 970 and upgrade the PSU to fit to the requirements of the new graphics card. The motherboard (Memphis-s) and the case does support these cards as they are cards double-width, and what diet do you recommend? The current graphics card is a Geforce GTX 645 with 2 GB of VRAM, twice more than the Nvidia reference design.

    Hi there @apanpapan3

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! It's a good place to find the help you need, so many other users, the HP experts and other members of the support staff. I understand that you are looking for information for upgrading the video card and the power supply to your computer. I'm happy to help you with this.

    Looking at the two video cards that you are considering, the 960 requires that a minimum of 400 w of power and the 970 requires a minimum of 970 w. The two cards are double-width, but the 970 is a little longer. Both use PCI Express 3.0.

    The system has however a 300W power supply, then of course you will need to level it and don't forget the replacement of the power supply has the necessary extra power connections, 1 or 2 6-pin connections must be available depending on the card.

    The current internal power supply also has the following additional parameters:

    • Form factor: ATX internal

    You are the very welcome, John.

    No, maximum size chip, you can put in each slot is only 4 GB.

    What I mean by the 8 black chips instead of 4 bit is noted in the images below.

    8 tokens: recommended.


    4 chips: not recommended.  May not be enough low density.


    The Intel Mobile chipset with the processor that your model can run at 1066 MHz.

    Thus, memory at 1333 MHz will be downclock at 1066 Mhz speed to match how fast the processor can run.

  • Pavilion 500-123w processor upgrade won't work

    I have the HP Pavilion 500-123w computer with the card mother H-Joshua-H61-Μatx (Joshua). I just bought this computer on December 23, 2013.

    According to the specification of HP product site, he says that the motherboard will support a processor Quad Core of Intel Core i7-2xxx (Sandy Bridge).

    So I bought an Intel Core i7 - 2600K CPU and installed. When I turn on the computer, it says "ERROR not taken into CHARGE PROCESSOR - YOUR COMPUTER NOW STOP." It won't let me even get into the BIOS, because it stops after a few seconds.

    I had already installed the update of the most recent from the HP site BIOS until I installed the processor. The BIOS version is JOS_817.ROM V8.17

    I studied this motherboard on other sites, and they said that this motherboard supports Intel Core i7 - 2600K processor.

    When I put the processor back original, everything works fine. I installed the new processor 3 different times and I get the same error message.

    Are there settings jumper, I need to change the motherboard? Does anyone else have this problem?

    I am an electronics technician and have done repairs to computer for years. For me, it looks like there is a problem with the BIOS does not recognize the new processor.

    Thanks for any help,


    Oh no, I just heard from HP Support and they said:

    "Dan, I checked the specifications of your PC and gathered the information that your PC is compatible with Intel Core i7-2xxx (Sandy Bridge) Quad Core, but the processor Intel Core i7 - 2600K is not compatible with your PC." So, I recommend you to install with Intel Core i7-2600 (Sandy Bridge) Quad Core.

    Thus, the i7-2600 is a little different than the i7 - 2600K. Wish I had known before that I spent more than 300 million dollars on the new processor.

    I should have purchased separate components and built a new computer from scratch, like that I could update if I needed to. Well, we live an apprenticeship. Factory computers are not easily expandable.

    Thank you very much for your help, I appreciate it sincerely.

  • HP Pavilion 500-002ec: the HP Pavilion 500-002ec gpu upgrade


    I have a HP Pavilion 500-002ec pc and I want to replace the pre-installed gpu (Radeon HD 8570). I was looking at GTX950 and I have a few questions. I need more power for her? If so, how much more? And it is even compatible with current pc? Thanks for your replies.


    If do the 950 GTX specific and model does not require a 6-pin auxiliary power connector then it should work. However, most of the GTX 950 require an auxiliary power connector 6-pin and the HP 300 watt standard power supply in your PC doesn't have that connector.  You would be obliged to replace the power supply or try the NVIDIA GTX 750.

    If you decide to stay with the GTX950 then I suggest you one of the following blocks that will give you a bit of room to develop and/or use a graphics card more large: Corsair CX500, CX600 or CX650m

    Be sure to measure to ensure that the graphics card fits will fit inside.

    HI experts,

    My laptopn Pavilion dv6 1446ee has two slots of memory, each use "1 GB PC2-6400, 800 MHz, DDR2 RAM"

    Now, if I want to upgrade the memory to 4 GB, then should I modernize the two slots? Or upgrade to the 4 GB single slot will work?




    Your machine currently have 2 x 1 GB, you can switch to 2 x 4 GB (8 GB total):


    1 location with 4 GB works but why you would do this, DDR3 RAM (DDR2, not) is cheap now
