HP Pavilion dm4-1024tx Enterta: upgrade to 8 GB of memory and is blue screen problem

Product: HP Pavilion dm4-1024tx Entertainment Notebook PC
Product number: XC651PA
I have corsair Vengeance ram 8 GB (CMSX8GX3M1A1600C10) that as a result of the configurations as mentioned below:
SPD 9-9-9-24 latency
SPD speed 1333 Mhz
SPD voltage 1.5V
PC3-12800 (1600 MHz) memo speed
Tested latency 10-10-10-27
Tested 1600 Mhz speed
Tested voltage 1.5V
It passes the test of memory BIOS.
BIOS VERSION: Hewlett-Packard F.27, 21/12/2011
But when I boot windows 7, it shows the windows symbol and then it shows the blue screen with the error
STOP: 0X0000007E
If I replace memory corsair with the memory that has been delivered with the laptop the system only works very well.
Corsair memory is not compatible with the system?
I have a dual boot and installed ubuntu on this subject. Ubuntu loads perfectly fine, but after a while the system restarts automatically (IE open application).
I tried memorytest86 to test the memory, but the application continue to crash and reboot and does not provide any results.
Help, please.


The RAM is not compatible. The system allows a maximum total memory of 8 GB and uses DDR3-1333 which downclocks at 1066 speed. You cannot use a single module of 8 GB. 4 gigs is the large single module supports the system. I suspect the memory that you have will work fine if you had modules of 2 x 4 GB instead of a single module of 8 GB. That's why memtest is not finished. The controller memory motherboard is not able to take up 8 GB of RAM by a single channel.

  • Upgrade Alienware 17 r2, graphics, memory and SSD; heating system and stops

    I tried to find information on the upgrade from my old system of r2 to Alienware 17 with new graphics, memory and an SSD, but I've been to find contradictory information on it, and if I would still be able to upgrade my graphics.

    My current setup is:

    Computer model
    OS version
    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
    Intel Core i7 CPU M 620 @ 2.67GHz
    Clock speed

    Intel (r) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 3B3C

    First of all, the graphics card can be improved and if so, should I go with?

    Depending on the type of memory I thought to install is:

    Crucial Ballistix Sport 16 GB DDR3 - 1600 PC3-12800)

    I heard that 8 GB was supposed to be the max, but that was only because it was all that was available at the time, the system was released and that others have used up to 16 GB.

    It will work or is there another suggestion?

    Thirdly, the SSD I plan on installing is:

    Crucial BX200 480 GB SATA III 6 Gb/s 2.5 "Solid State Drive CT480BX200SSD

    Still, I read the system never was not originally designed to support SATA III but if you use BIOS version A09 it would work.

    Is that correct or suggestions?

    The last two things I was wondering was that the system overheat easily and stops, to rebuild the thermal paste on the CPU and heatsink help correct this?  As well as to clean the fans, of course.  Or are there other options I should look into?

    Anyone know where to buy a new adapter power for this system as well?

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide me with.


    First of all I would like to ditch the 620M processor, it's i7 below, you can get and dual-core only, not quad.

    You should be able to find an i7 820QM at a reasonable price, these days, 920QM or 940QM would be even better, they were the fastest available for this model.

    Once you have upgraded the CPU to something on an i7 720QM you can upgrade you RAM to 32 GB at 1333 MHz with no problems, if you want faster than 1333 you need to adjust overclock settings in the system BIOS.

    You have two HDD slots, up to any size SSD 1 TB plug-and-play (or to the more require very few adjustments BIOS) Firmware may need to be updated but also that it should be OK, just stick with an alienware used as Samsung brand, and if you can get one from the SSD slightly more older you might save money , you don't need a model 'latest and greatest '.

    Upgrade your GPU in the M17xR2 model can be a pain, the fan control is terrible and to really improve and play safely, you should probably use HW Monitor, so you do not cook your cards.

    Memory the AMD maps are more lenient when it comes to bi - GPU - I think remember me some upgraded GPU not X shot or SLIing in this model, but now is earlier in order not to forget.

    The M17xR2 is a very popular model, with thousands of people, the GPU upgrade - you can having to sort through the garbage to find the jewels but the info you need should be available if you do a search on google

    NotebookReview Forum would be a great place to start, 99% of the info you need should be there, the other 1% proably will be on techinferno.

    Guilbert - I still think that the M17xR2 has been one of the best they have done...

    Hi once the device is powered keep tapping F2 button then start the hard drive & test control memory if a test fails, you will need to replace the part if test passes following the steps below. Then you can try the F8 key when the power is on and try the last known good configuration. If this does not work try start repair and try to repair the unit. If these options above does not work you can try to do a system recovery restore or F11 before this please back up your data as it will be lost.

    HI @Ayushi_kh

    Thank you for your response.

    Here is a link to the HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC. Please see Chapter 4 for removal and replacement.

    When I was browsing through the maintenance and service guide, I noticed you have switchable graphics.

    That being said, I suggest you do a recovery in factory.  This will reinstall the drivers of graphics cards correctly and I hope to solve this problem.

    Performing a recovery of system HP (Windows 7)

    During the recovery, there is an option to backup your personal data if you do not have a recently I'd do one now to avoid any data loss.

    Restore files that have been supported to the top using HP Recovery Manager (Windows 7)

    If for any reason any recovery did not resolve the issue please provides your exact model of DV6.

    How can I find my model number or product number?

    Good luck!

  • HP Pavilion dm4-3005 serious bug BIOS/drivers - ACPI.sys blocks constantly DPC to 3 milliseconds

    Some of our users reported problems with the HP Pavilion dm4, Intel i5, portable audio beats, so we bought such a system for the test, a HP Pavilion dm4-3005. The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

    The questions were dropouts sound while using the software and USB audio interfaces that we do.

    Now, we have confirmed the questions and analyzed the cause behind it.

    The computer suffers from a DPC latency bottleneck, that fires continually in the OS ACPI.sys driver.

    ("CPD" is a regular work of pilots (Deferred Procedure Call).)

    Each DPC planned by each driver must always end quickly (less than 100 microseconds), or it causes a bug which acts as a bottleneck. When a long DPC runs in a driver, all other drivers are often necessarily suspended, for example, on a machine that behaves in the way reported, Windows can not reliable service all the drivers that need to run more often than once every 3-4 milliseconds.

    Low latency is necessary for all reception record, DAW, music app, software synth, as well as pro audio interface hardware drivers.

    Because of the congestion, they all suffer from heavy sound artifacts more use cases / underallocations for the pilot of the audio interface. This includes our products but also in any other software low latency and USB audio interfaces.

    HP Pavilion dm4-3005 has in this way from the factory, and no matter what drivers are disabled or set to date.
    I ran all the critical updates for installation of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

    I downloaded and installed all the updates driver from HP support.

    Finally, I also downloaded the BIOS update that available to HP support.

    I also followed several guides to address these issues, including advice prevailing to disable the driver "ACPI Compliant control method battery" in Device Manager (Edit: filled in the name of the pilot.)

    Does not the initial problem.

    I guess it's a bug in the BIOS - which has yet to be resolved by HP or their partner of BIOS for this product.

    I have the computer factory reset and ready for testing your solution, when it will be available.

    As it is now, we must warn our users of these systems because of their unusable latency.

    HP is aware of this problem?

    Thank you very much

    Hello world

    I have good news for you, dm4-30xx users!

    The new BIOS is completed and will be published shortly by HP (need to package configuration file and write the documentation now...). The update of the BIOS version will be the F.0B.

    However, I have access to the "raw" version of this new BIOS. I can send it to you if you ask me, but in this case, you will assume any bad use of this file. In this case, please send me your mail by MP.

    The official release will not take much time, so I think it's best that you wait.

    Best regards!
