HP Pavilion g6 upgrade

Hello, I own a HP Pavilion g6 model number 1d80nr.

It has a dual core CPU AMD A4 - 3305M, g6 in the HP pavilion manual it says I can update to A8 - 3520M.

Is it possible to do? How will I know if it is compatible or not?

I'd appreciate any help really

Thanks in advance


Yes it's the thing; I have yet to see a page archived AMD processors listed by AMD themselves...

OK I found some info documented but no socket, name code or information step by step really



Better, still


This confirms that wikipedia was right. Borth use FS1 uPGA, or first generation FS1 and BO stepping.

    My Pavilion dv6 upgraded to windows 10 what happened to my external screen does not

    Hi @Jake08,

    Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A place where you can find solutions for your problems with the help of the community!

    I stumbled upon your post on the laptop and wanted to help you! I looked in your question about your HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook and questions with external screen works not properly. You can try this without the connected external monitor.

    In Device Manager, click the arrow next to display adapters to expand this category
    Right-click on the graph, and then select Update driver software if more than 1 graphic adapter do 1 at a time.
    Select search automatically for updated driver software.

    The laptop must find and automatically install the updated driver
    Once the installation is complete, restart your laptop.

    You can try to use the Windows Update Troubleshooter to fix updates that do not come through Windows 10.  Please restart the laptop twice to make sure that all updates are completed!

    Please let me know how it goes.

    Thank you.

  • Pavilion Slimline: upgrade to MS10

    I upgraded to MS10 and now my graphics (JUA190) does not work.  I was told that HP does not support the new driver to get my card to work.  I bought this computer before 2013.  This HP can be upgraded to accept the new adapter?  Currently, my Manager shows the basic graphics card.  How to add or change this, if I can.

    Golf buddy


    Thanks for providing the info.

    I wish I had some good news for you, but I did not.

    HP does not provide more recent than Win7 for your PC drivers, so there is no updated HP driver to fix the problem.

    Here is the link to the page of the drivers for your PC: http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Pavilion-Slimline-s5500-Desktop-PC-series/4162194/model/4206331

    To see the drivers for Win7, click change and select Win7 in the menu drop-down.

    You MIGHT be able to install the video drivers Win7 using compatibility mode: http://www.windows10forums.com/articles/compatibility-mode.7/

  • Pavilion 6650z: upgrade Windows 10

    I was wondering if an upgrade to Windows 7 SP 1 Windows 10 could prove useful. My desktop computer Pavilion meets all the hardware requirements to run Win 10. It's a CTO in January 2011.

    I've already tried an update to Win 10 on-site the weekend of the new year, earlier this year. While the update process, the indexing for my Corel Photo Paint Shop Pro X 3 process lasted several hours with no end in sight. It is at this time that I decided to go back to Windows 7. Could not find the link "back to the previous Windows" in the Windows 10 settings, I used my system recovery disks to reinstall factory on my Pavilion.

    Before considering a new attempt to upgrade Windows 10, I would like to know if it's worth my time and effort to install Win 10. Also, I would like to know which is better: an upgrade in place against the clean install.

    I read Windows 7 machines that met in the hardware configuration required to win 10 has failed as well in the upgrade process, that the results are mixed at best.

    Thanks for your help.

    You are right to be cautious about making the upgrade of Win10 on a Win7 PC.

    I did it on several\ PC Win7 and it completely trashed both of them - where they were to be restored to factory settings to restore operation.

    I wrote the following to inform people about the measures to be taken during the upgrade PC Win7 to Win10...

    Desktop computers older Win7 tend to fare badly when upgraded to Win10 - mainly due to lack of HP Win10 drivers for older hardware.

    If you are determined to upgrade to Win10, you must be willing to do four things:
    (1) do a full image backup of disk external drive or USB stick, capacity
    (2) changes to the reserved system partitioning hard disk recommandΘes mΘthodes,
    (3) use a different approach and maybe more than one, as Windows Update to do the upgrade,
    (4) prepare for a clean install.

    1: backup of images:
    This is VITAL, because the machine is doomed to failure of the upgrade, and when that happens, you will learn that GoBack to Win10 function is NOT reliable, and that can leave you with a corrupt machine that will require the factory reset and lose all that on it, to get it working again.

    You can avoid this by making an image backup to an external hard drive or a USB drive using Macrium reflect (MR), which provides a FREE version that can be used to image and restore partitions or drives together.

    What I recommend is the following:
    (1) download and install Macrium reflect (MR)
    (2) run M. and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition (s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup to an external drive or USB key
    (3) use the option to create a CD or a USB startup key

    NOW, you have the means to restore a full system that works for the external hard drive or USB key in a few minutes.
    2: System reserved for resizing:
    There is a small partition on the HDD with Win7 preinstalled machines known as system reserved.  It is something known as the boot loader code.  There is 100 MB format: all that is necessary for Win7.  But Win10 needs 350 MB and, in some cases, is NOT able to resize it on its own.  IF this happens, you must manually use a partitioning tool to resize it yourself.
    3: use a different approach to upgrade:
    Windows Update is the simpler, but less reliable, way to do the upgrade from Win10.  A much better and more reliable way is to use Microsoft Media creation tool: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install?ocid=ms_wol_win10 choose the upgrade this option now PC.

    After all this, you know that MS install drivers with only the most basic features.  Given that HP does not have drivers for your PC Win10, this limited functionality is the best you're going to get.  HP does not actively write new drivers from Win10 for the old PC Win7.  To keep all the features of your PC, your best shot is NOT to upgrade to Win10.
    4: be prepared to clean-install:
    If you do all this, and after the upgrade, your PC works partially, this means that the upgrade is not well and stuff is still there the previous OS corrupt the functionality of Win10.

    You MIGHT be able to solve the problem in fact a clean install of Win10. Problem is that, often, a clean-install does not recognize prior activation, even if it should. So, before doing the upgrade, follow these instructions on the community forums Win10 on creating a genuineticket.xml file: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/23354-clean-install-windows-10-directly-without-having-upgrade-first.html

    You need more later to activate your pc Win10 after the installation of clean.


    Good luck

  • 6199ee Pavilion - LX218EA: upgrade of ram hp pavilion dv6-6199ee

    can I switch from ram to my labtop hp pavilion dv6-6199ee from 8g to 16g?


    The following link shows its specifications:


    It says clearly: expandable up to 8 GB of DDR3 memory (means 8GB max).

    But the maintenance and Service Guide says, it uses Intel processor (CPU) for this purpose, you can upgrade to 16 GB (page 5):


    Please use the right part on page 66 of the manuals or at least same specs above.

  • Pavilion p6608f: upgrade memory for p6608f

    Hello, my Pavilion p6608f came with 4 GB of RAM. I want to upgrade. By HP features, the motherboard is a MSI ms-7613 and it should support up to 16 GB of RAM (4 x 4 GB DIMMS). I bought 4 DIMM which seem to fit specifications, but the computer wouldn't POST after installation. I tried reseating the DIMMs, but no luck. My hypothesis is that the memory is not compatible.  I'm unable to find good information on the compatible memory for this computer on the site of Kingston, MSI site, or the site of HP. (Any ideas on one) why the memory I bought is not compatible and b) how to find compatible memory?

    Thank you.

    Saw that Crucial guarantees their recommendations, I'd go with it.  You may contact their Customer Service to see what they have to say if you are still skeptical.  I have recommended Crucial memory for years without reports of incorrect memory being received.

    Please give me your thoughts and your guides on which would be the best thing to do and buy. Thank you for your time!

    Toolayzie, welcome to the forum.

    The video card you listed should work on your computer.  However, I suggest you contact Technical Support from the manufacturer for help to choose the best card for your situation.  They will be able to get you a card that will be much better.  I love EVGA products.  Their Technical Support (1-888-881-3842) is very good.  I believe that you can be able to upgrade to an EVGA GT 640.  They are a little hard to find, but worth the search.  Something more recent need UEFIin the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS.

    The power supply (PSU) you listed is fine.  However, I suggest that you look at a modular power supply.  They only connect the cables which are absolutely necessary for your components.  This allows better air circulation and reduces the heat in a medium-sized case.  You should compare the measurements of your current diet to one you choose.  Corsair is passionate about quality products with a reasonable price.  The PSU is the backbone of the computer.  You want one that provides a clean and stable power and Corsair does that very well.

    Since you're a player, you would be blown away by the new games desktop and HP laptops.  I use a HP Omen gaming laptop.  It is as powerful as any game their computers.  I used both.

  • HP pavilion 6910us: upgrading to windows 7, or even 10

    Hello everyone. I have a hp pavilion 6910us, who finally died on me. The drive decided to die on me. I'm planning on upgrading to windows 7, but can't search for drivers for it. I know that this laptop will be compatible because it has 4 GB of ram (4 GB but 1 GB is used for video) and 2.0 GHz processor, which is enough for windows 7. I just need a little help to find drivers for 7.

    Also, is it an update of the bios that I need to install it for 7? This computer will be compatiable with 10? are there drivers for 10?


    No, ONLY drivers for Vista:


    But many users successfully upgraded to Windows 7, I don't know about Windows 10.

    After I installed Windows 7, you must run Windows 7 updates several times, and he will find drivers for you. In the end, the machine can miss one or two, please post back and our friends will help you.

    The trick to this is to only buy and install memory modules memory major manufacturers that ensure compatibility of their modules with your PC. Crucial memory, Corsair, Kingston, include the well known memory manufacturers.

    Try to upgrade by matching with the published desktop memory module specifications [specifications is, as you know by now, a shot in the water and a financial risk.]

    An example of this is seen in the following image.

    An upgrade would be better.

    I suggest you wait a little time, like a month because Windows 10 will be published soon.

    It is much better than windows 8 and windows 7 + 8 is more like handsets.
