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.

Surfer is part of HP for the product number: C7E80PA - model name: HP ENVY DV7 - 7205TX NOTEBOOK PC lists;

Number of component spare
Module of memory of 8 GB 670034-001
Memory 4 GB 641369-001
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.

    Can anyone help please?

    Hi George,.

    I think the Satellite 1000 came with two memory slots and was initially equipped with 256 MB of RAM. It is expandable to 512 MB total RAM.

  • I want to upgrade the RAM in my Acer Aspire 5736z-4826.

    I want to upgrade the RAM in my Acer Aspire 5736z-4826. I've seen different specifications on the laptop. Some people say that it can hold 8 GB of RAM and some say 4GB. I don't know the exact type of RAM that works. I ordered 2x2gb RAM PC3-12800 DDR3 of Crucial, and he was not compatible and caused the screen doesn't Flash at max resolution. I think the problem is, it should be PC - 8500 DDR3 RAM. Can someone please give me some information since there is NO information on the web on this particular laptop. Thank you.

  • I have a HP Pavilion and I want to upgrade the hardware to run a 64-bit operating system.

    I have a HP Pavilion (RF783AA) and I want to upgrade the hardware so I can install a 64-bit operating system. What should I do to make a 64-bit system? It is an upgrade of the bios or it means new equipment?

    Thank you very much



    Normally, for modern machines we only need the 64 bit operating system itself and the drivers appropriate to go with it. There is no need to upgrade the hardware except we may want more RAM to use the 64 bit OS.

    In your case, the machine is too old, my suggestion is to buy a new machine. In the long run, can be cheaper than buying part and piece of component to upgrade the existing.

    Don t mix for laptop and desktop PC.
    There are two different things and upgrade CPU for laptops is not easy all this is complicated, as the motherboards are designed only for the specific model laptop.

Please anyone suggest me which processors can install and are compatible. Also let me know what I need to change for the processor to function correctly.

    My laptop is too hot. What should do?

    Please suggest me for the above two questions.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here is the Manual:

    Repair manuals

    You can remove your AMD A4 processor and install a

    AMD A8 - 3520M 2.50 GHz processor (1.6 GHz FSB, 4, 0 - MB L2 cache, quad core, 35 W)

    The manual shows how to do it. The A8 processor will be a quick replacement; You can reuse the heat sink and won't need any part other than the processor. While you are there, it will give a good opportunity to clean the inside and apply new thermal paste between the top of the processor and the lower part of the radiator. Clean the blades of the fan with a q-tip with alcohol, then wipe each blade with a lint cloth carefully to make sure that everyone is clean as a whistle. On the A-series AMD when you upgrade the processor, actually get you a small bump in video performance. The processor is actually called an APU and is somewhat simplified, the CPU and video card. Normally I advice against upgrades the processor laptop, but on this one particular type, I think it's logical given that the processors are cheap, because there is not much demand for them. Intels are a lot more. After the back if you need assistance. Good luck.

  • I want to upgrade the graphics card in my computer and I don't know if they are of the type I need more

    I want to upgrade the Visual memory of 96,0 MB so I can run my game better. It would help if someone could possibly give me a source of where to get one that would be great thanks

    If you don't have a graphics card then it is integrated into the motherboard as you say. If it is a very old motherboard, it may be a good idea to get a newer computer with a good graphics card in it. If it's a newer motherboard, you should check if it has a PCI slot, and if so, you could probably buy a graphics card yourself and put it in your computer. Anyway, you should probably talk to savvy friends computer you have, who should be able to tell you which way you should look at.

  • I have a laptop 214dx CQ60. I want to upgrade the processor in it something else.

    I have a laptop 214dx CQ60. I want to upgrade the processor in it something else. I read on the Internet it is possible to replace the processor too long you will find the right socket, power, processor etc. Is there a list out there which is compatible with the laptop I have? I was hoping to find a processor that will consider a dual-core to a core2duo machine computer. Thanks for any info you can give me!

    Thank you for your help. I'm looking to an improvement in the operating system memory/too, so that the processor could do the trick. Was probably go Windows 7 64 bit at the same time. Thanks again.

  • Re: Satellite Pro A300D-161 - I want to upgrade the RAM to 4 GB

    Hello, I want to upgrade my RAM from 2 GB to 4 GB.

    The laptop box, said the other: 2 GB DDR2 800 Mhz, but when I check the CPU - Z it says 400 Mhz

    The website of toshiba says also 800 Mhz, so wich 1 I need to buy?
    1 x 2 GB DDR2 - 400 Mhz
    2 x 2 GB DDR2 - 800 Mhz

    Also, I wonder when I switch to 4 GB, the amount of memory will be dedicated to my video card?

    Thank you


    CPU - Z is definitely wrong! Satellite Pro A300D-161 needs DDR2-800 MHz to upgrade according to the specs on the Toshiba site.
    If the information on the laptop box is correct.

    More video RAM will be assigned automatically and with 4 GB of RAM you will get more memory video too.

    Good bye

  • Satellite Pro A120 - I want to upgrade the RAM


    I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in my Satellite Pro A120 Model No.: PSAC1E-05C00VEN

    I'm getting conflicting reports as to how this can actually take, some sites say a 1 GB maximum per slot max so 2 GB while most of the others say max 2 GB per slot

    I was hoping you could advise me.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.


    Your Satellite Pro A120 is equipped with the Intel 945 GM chipset and so you can upgrade it to 4 GB of RAM.
    Only models with ATI chipset can be upgraded to 2 GB and I think this is the reason why some sites say that it can be upgraded to 2 GB and others at 4 GB.

    However, for the upgrade of RAM DDR2-RAM PC2-5300 (DDR2-677). You can buy 2 GB modules for a maximum of 4 GB.
    But don t forget that only a 64 bit OS supports 4 GB of RAM.

    Good bye

  • Satellite L40 - 139 - I want to upgrade the RAM

    My laptop is Toshiba Satellite L40 - 139 PSL40E model, operating system Windows XP SP3, 1 024 DDR2 RAM (667 MHz) (512 + 512).

    I want to increase the RAM memory using 2048 DDR2 RAM (1024 + 1024).

    Laptop manual can not find if support * _dual-channel memory_ *, which requires a dual-channel-capable motherboard. Theoretically, this technology double data rate of the memory.
    Someone has the manual for this laptop motheboard, or may indicate the site for download?

    Apologies for my bad English.
    Thank you.


    Satellite L40-139 can be upgraded to 2 GB of RAM. You can buy two modules with 1 GB of capacity with the specifications of DDR2 at 667 MHz.
    If you use two modules, they run in dual channel mode.

    The manual of the motherboard or repair for Toshiba laptops cannot be downloaded. They are only available if ASP.

    Good bye

  • Wanting to upgrade the CPU in the satellite L20 196


    I'm new to this forum but have owned this laptop new a moment right now. As time has passed I noticed he has aged rapidly in recent months and needs a boost of speed.
    I upgraded the RAM, a matching pair to 1 GB (896 MB showing, guess that's graphic shared?), but still not quite quickly enough.

    My question is, can I upgrade the processor to a Pentium M or at least a faster Celeron?
    If Yes, then what is the best possible processor that will be compatible? Autour Googling, I see I'm not alone on this idea, but all the info and comments where other L20 and not my model 196 in question.
    Do I have reason to believe that the limits are 400 Mhz FSB, 1.5 GHz and 478 pins for this laptop?
    Finally, I replaced and rebuilt a lot of PC in the past. A laptop (my L20) is much more difficult to remove and replace a CPU?

    Thank you and look forward to any comments thereon.

    In General, the CPU upgrade is not supported. More info on what you can read under

    To be clear. Your Satellite L20 is really not the best laptop and on the scale of 1 to 5 when 5 of the best, I give your laptop 2. This laptop is designed for day-to-day activities like Office, internet, watching movies, listening to music and writing emails. So I think that with the preinstalled operating system and well set to own and 1 GB of RAM, it must have enough power for this.

    I don't know what you want to do with this good old classic, but if you need laptop with more power for games or multimedia activities, I think it's time for the new laptop computer.

    Please don't be crazy on me because I did not offer exact answer, but I just want to be realistic and honest with you.
