Pavilion 15-ab121dx: 15 laptop HP Pavilion (15-ab121dx) w / AMD A10 8700 p - what are the speed/types/sizes of RAM supported?

I bought a new laptop over the weekend (15-ab121dx - CPU AMD A - 10 p 8700, 6 GB of DDR3 RAM memory) and the sales associate could not tell me the max supported RAM.  I guess I could quickly find the info online, but was strangely wrong...  I searched HP and the Internet in general site but can't find what the maximum RAM allowed in this laptop.  I'm assuming that the laptop is so new, the information is just not there yet?    He came only installed with 6 GB or ram (SODIMM 1 is 4 GB and the 2nd SODIMM 2 GB) and I want to change to 16GB SODIMM (2x8GB) or 32 GB (2x16GB) SODIMM.   The problem is that I can't find the maximum supported memory, speed, memory type for my new machine.  One of the main reasons that I decided to go with this laptop is I read good things about the A10 AMD 8700 p and that it can work with RAM speeds up to 2133 mhz...  But before I buy the fast RAM, I want first of all to ensure that this speed of RAM will work in this laptop?  Please list the supported RAM types, size of RAM, RAM speeds for this laptop.   In addition, support DDR3L, DDR3, or both?    Thank you!

Yes thank you, but the link you have sent (the model computer laptop 15-ab121dx on the HP site) was the first place I checked when I started searching for information on the laptop.    It not there no guide service or y at - it clues about the supported RAM configurations.   I knew that the price of the machine and the CPU is perhaps a little too good to be true.     ... Not extensible user is bad.  Looks like the laptop everything would need to be dismantled to even just replacing the hard drive and, to install or replace the motherboard of the laptop RAM must be removed!    I should have done more research.  But I guess even if I had, I wouldn't have found much (since having to place a post in a forum to know these basic things like access and type of RAM)...   I plan to return it.  Thanks for the quick responses to the post office - this was appreciated.

    Anything can be corrupted on your MacBook Pro, but from what you say, it seems that the cable drive/SSD/flash memory/SATA hard was seriously damaged. Him "question mark" means that your Mac is unable to find any bootable device, meaning that it does not yet detect your OS X drive.

    You should make a backup of your files (if you can still do it) and take the Mac at the Apple Store or dealer to get a diagnosis. There may be several damaged parts.

    Go to computer stores, get an external hard drive of 1 TB capacity. Ask for one that you can just simply copy and paste to transfer files.

    I have a. Digital WD Elements. 1 TB vapacity. It works very well. No action of fancy, complicated to transfer, just copy and paste or drag and drop files.

    I also use it to make Sysytem Image backup.

  • What are the options I have to upgrade the Wifi in the HP Pavilion Notebook M7-1015DX

    The Pavilion M7-1015DX laptop I is equipped with a RALink RT5390R 1.1 802.11b/g/n wireless adapter.  He would go only to 54 Mbps until I found a link to RALinktech to get an updated driver which allows me now to get 150mbps.  But this is only half of what I can potentially get with my router.  I did research on the other card options wireless adapter HP with 'compatible' with this laptop.  As far as I see it, all are the same.  They have only max to 150mbps.

    The listed reference numbers are 655795-001, 675794-001, 657325-001 670691-001.

    I need a replacement of the wireless network card that can achieve 300mbps using 802.11n.  All HP part numbers I listed are capable of 300mbps, or are there others that I can look at and buy?

    With or without the bluetooth feature, no matter, I just need 300mbps talk to my router NetGear dual band.

    I had the adapter wireless Intel Centrino Advanced - N 6230 works with the correct drivers now on this series of portable M7.

    Also note: it's just a card Intel Centrino ordinary, not the ch (from what I can tell) and without a label to the HP part about this number.

    HP had the pilot throughout their download section of this wireless card.

    The installation may or may not be delicate on your end.  It was for me and the package would not install right.  Go to the real folder that it expanded the installation files, and go to the win7\S64\Install folder and run Setup from there.

    The installation takes a few moments, so be patient.  If Device Manager is open, you will see the detected devices and appearing as the drivers are installed.  Once installation is complete, you'll see a map of Bluetooth radio and at least 4 new entries under Network Adpaters.

    I am now running at the full 300Mbps, on 2.4 Ghz and can easily connect to 5.4 Ghz on my router Netgear Dual Band, but at 54 Mbps.  (But I can probably change the channel on the router and get a faster connection speed.)

    I strongly suspect that the 6230 model is not the only one who can work on this laptop, as the driver of HP is not specific to what model numbers of the adaters wireless Intel Centrino Advanced-N, then you might be able to run newer models, since we now know that this series wireless adapter is in the white list in the BIOS.

  • HP Pavilion DV6T-3000: what are the processor i7 can this motherboard can I go to?

    Hello

    I'd like to update my CPU, but don't know which are supported by my motherboard.

    I have a HP Pavilion DV6T-3000 series.

    Part of the motherboard: 615278-001

    Original CPU: i7-720QM

    In the dv6 manual (link below), it is mentioned that the Intel Core i7-740QM, i7-820QM and i7-840QM can used in general by computer laptop dv6, but it's not to specify which processor when with the motherboard.

    http://www.HP.com/CTG/manual/c02657339.PDF

    I would like to used the upgrade to i7-840QM, or at least i7-820QM or same i7-740QM as last resort.

    Will be my motherboard suport it?

    Thank you

    See page 22 of the manual here:

    Manual

    Unlike compatibility processor only in motherboards, it's that there are motherboards for dual core and Quad Core boards. If you have a Quad Core, you can install any other Quad Core. These mobile Intel Core i7 1 genQuads always tends to be expensive and I don't know how much delivery must be done by replacing one such Quad Core for another. The base clock speed increase would be only 1.6 to 1.86 ghz, which is not terribly important. On eBay the i7-840QM is still ongoing for over $ $100 and for that price you approach the cost of a 500 GB SSD, which would provide a lot more help to your user experience.

  • HP PAVILION NOTEBOOK N012AX 14: AMD - A10 5745 carrots not working. And speed changes do not

    Hello, I have this problem. My processor AMD A-10 5745 M has 4 cores, I can either change from 1 up to 4 cores. But then, when I change to 4 cores, I restart and it uses a lot of my ram, so I had to change it back as 2 kernels, then at the next reboot. I look again in my hearts. He said that I have only 2 hearts. And I can't change it to 3 or 4 my CPU cores. My CPU doesn't change, it kept being also 2.10 ghz constantly which is my maximum processor speed. But before all this happened, my Simultaneosly changed CPU speed. Help, please. I have had no recovery, what can I do? Is that a bad thing or so? Please answer as soon as possible.

    -Thank you

  • HP Pavilion E0J75UA 17: What are the material that I can pass on my HP Pavilion E0J75UA 17?

    Greetings!

    I have a laptop HP Pavilion 17 E0J75UA I got last year. Is it possible to upgrade the CPU or GPU?

    (1) processor - AMD A10 - 5750 M APU with Radeon (TM) HD Graphics 2.5 GHz

    (2) GPU - AMD Radeon HD 8650 G

    If so, what are my upgrade options? I would like to stay with AMD for budget purposes as much as possible. Can go with Intel/Nvidia, not a problem.

    Thank you in advance.

    -Ed

    It's an APU, which means that the video work is done inside of the processor itself. You are at the top of the curve. No best APU/processor cannot be inserted into the slot of your motherboard. There is no option to go to Intel. That could put a round peg in a square hole.

  • Can you use a backup disks to another laptop to save your laptop? If so, what are the steps to create a backup disc?

    I need to restart my computer to its original settings, as I just bought. I did the backup drive for my laptop and need a backup disk to restore my computer. Can I use a backup from another laptop, same brand disc and the same software (vista). Can it be done? If so, what documents do I need to create a backup disk and what to put on it. Help, please.

    Hello

    recovery discs are computer brand and model specific

    If you need the drive for your recovery or read alternative methods below

    If you don't have a recovery disk, you must have a recovery partition to do the same thing

    Here are the different ways to reinstall Vista:

    Contact the manufacturer of the laptop computer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

    they do it for a nominal cost of $

    also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

    you would normally press F8, F9, F10 or F11 or Alt + F10 or 0 to start to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

    Ask them of the exact key sequence

    their request also how to make this recovery partition recovery disks

    or borrow a vista microsoft dvd; not a HP, Acer recovery disk etc

    Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

    they contain all versions of vista

    This is the product key that determines which version of vista is installed
