Maximum RAM for notebook DV7-4000 series?

I have a laptop ' HP Pavilion dv7-4000 Select Edition Entertainment Notebook PC ' 4 years ago (2010), model WA357AV.  Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit with Intel core i5 M450 @ 2.4 GHz and 6 GB of Ram.

What is the maximum size of RAM so I wanted to update?  I can go up to 16 GB with 2 8 GB cards? It is important that the current memory cards are "unbalanced" because I have a 4 GB card and a 2GB card when I always read both should be the same for the 'best performance '.  If "unbalanced" is OK, I might consider replacing just the 2 GB card with 8 GB, send me some 8 + 4 = 12 GB which would be obviously cheaper.

Thanks in advance for any advice.


Max ram with the processor of your model is 8 GB (2 x 4 GB).

It's well run 4 GB + 2 GB but the memory does not work in DDR mode achieve higher.

Replace the 2 GB chip with a 4 GB chip.

That's the best you can do.

  • Maximum RAM for Pavilion dv7-6107ee, product number LS048EA

    Hey there ' All,.

    I currently have the OEM 8 GB RAM installed.  I run VMware Workstation 8 for a laboratory test on my laptop and I would really like to 16 GB of RAM, but it seems that I read a few places that this model is not expandable to 8 GB (which is funny because the model seems comes with 8 GB.) So much for an upgrade).

    Before you buy 16 GB memory live, this laptop will support him?

    I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x 64 with a processor Intel 320 160 GB SSD (SSD is worth every penny, incidentally!).

    I just ran the Crucial System Scanner to see what he had to say and he acknowledged my system like a HP - Compaq IdeaPad U450p Laptop/Notebook.  This is not just, of course, but there may be a link any between the two I don't know.  States crucial System Scanner:

    Each slot of memory can hold DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-10600, with a maximum of 4 GB per slot.*
    * May not exceed manufacturer supported memory.

    Of course, the important part here, I've noticed, is that there is a maximum of 4 GB per slot because that's what HP is supported.  Does that mean that the system will recognize even 16 GB and it will not support the HP? Could there be stability problems if I do?  I'm looking for if I install 16 GB?

    See you soon,.

  • Maximum RAM for old computer with operating system updated

    I have old a laptop Compaq Presario C700 initially provided with 1 GB of RAM and Windows Vista.  This computer has since been updated for Windows 7 32-bit and upgrade to 2 GB of RAM.  I checked Crucial site and he informed me that the maximum RAM for this computer is the 2 GB that I am currently.  Despite this, I read the posts of people successfully 3 to 4GB of RAM installed and still having their computer function properly.  I also read that the maximum RAM that can run on a Windows 7 32-bit system is 4 GB.

    Since I now have Windows 7, I will be able to further improve my computer to a 4 GB of RAM or the hardware of the laptop itself prevents me to do?

    The manual for a Compaq Presario C700 says on page 2 supports up to 2 GB of RAM:

    With all computers, you have two factors limiting the amount of RAM memory that may be installed, or the motherboard, and the version of Windows installed. In your case, it is the motherboard that prevent you from adding more RAM.

  • Maximum RAM on Pavilion DV7 Notebook PC


    I have a Pavilion dv7, QF272EA #ABD with 8 GB of RAM installed. Is it possible to increase the RAM 16 GB - what RAM Modules should I then? On official documents the maximum RAM is 8 GB, but at the time, documents were made, no 8 GB Modules were available.

    The BIOS supports 8 GB Modules? The laptop has two slots, so my hope is, if I replace the built in 2 x 4 GB with 2x8GB, I have 16 GB of RAM.

    For what I need it? Different virtual machines at the same time for running the job. :-)

    I'm sorry for my bad English. Thanks for your help!


    Hi, Thorsten:

    Your English is very good.

    Since your computer laptop is the Intel processor, you can install 2 x 8 GB of memory.

    You need PC3-10600 memory laptop. Make sure that it is 10600, not 10660 or 10666.

    See the manual at the link below, Chapter 1, page 6, for the info of memory.

    Now, several manufacturers of memory have produced memory 8 GB PC1333.

  • Maximum RAM in a DV7 7205tx? I want to upgrade the RAM in my DV7-7205tx 8 GB to 16GB.

    Hi, I would like to upgrade the RAM in my DV7-7205tx 8 GB to 16GB, but the specifications say that the maximum is 8 GB. I am intrigued by what the DV7-7304tx has been released with 16 GB installed and it has the same processor and the same chipset. Can you please explain why the manual tells me that I can't spend my 2x4gb chips to 2x8GB?

    Much appreciated,


    Although not conclusive, the following information suggests strongly that the dv7-7205tx is capable of 16 GB (2 X 8 GB) memory.

    Memory 2 GB 652972-001

    The OP needs to open the memory Bay and check whether 1 or 2 modules of memory are installed and that the part (s) was/is. If a single p/n 670034-001 is installed, the system should have no problem taking another module of 8 GB, the maximum of the motherboard is rated to 16 GB. If two p/n 641369-001 modules are installed, something is fishy, as it departs the HP part Surfer information.
