I also try to install a GeForce 8400 GS with 1024 MB ddr3 pci-e 2.0 and cannot operate. If I plug into the video card and that you start the computer NOTHING on the screen at all. S ' PLEASE HELP.



The memory problem you reported is normal.

Part of memory has been reserved for some devices of system such as the integrated graphics card.

The issue of the video card does not...

I see the product that your PC came with factory-installed W8.1.

In order to get a video card no HP to work, you need to change 2 settings of the BIOS before installing your video on any PC card that came with W8 or newer version of the factory.

See this link to change the BIOS settings.

Also before you install your video card, you must uninstall the graphics card in Device Manager, check the box uninstall driver, stop, disconnect the PC and install your video card.

You can do this after you change the BIOS settings.

    To use your full 12 GB, you will need to run the 64-bit operating system...

  • Tecra A9 - shows only 2.99 RAM can be used on Windows 7 64 bit

    Great running except the RAM machines show only 2.99 GB usable on a total of 4 GB installed. I know it must re-mapping of memory, but I can't find any information to enable this or even if this machine can support?

    Can it be supported natively, or with an update patch or BIOS/driver, I think that the BIOS is 1.6.

    Thanks in advance.


    The amount of RAM is recognized in the BIOS? It shows the full capacity of 4 GB?

    Theoretically, updating the BIOS could be worth a try. I put t know which model you have exactly but European models the BIOS update can be downloaded here: > support & downloads > download drivers

    Hi I have a desktop computer Pavilion 500 - 242ea 64-bit with 6 GB of ram installed 1 x 2 gb Hynix/Hyundai 1600 mhz and 1 x 4 gb Samsung 1600 mhz.

    I would like to increase my ram by an additional 8 GB with a 2 x 4 GB - 1600 mhz cards in empty slots, all first is it possible and secondly what do you sugest?

    My motherboard has four 240-pin ddr dimm sockets plug say this upgrade may be: -.

    PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333) or

    PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) or

    PC3-14400 (DDR3-1866),

    I look forward to your response.

    You can add memory for each vacant home.   I would add two DDR3 2048 MB PC3-12800 (800 mhz) to this system.  But if you wanted to add two 4096 modules, I see no problem.

  • Pavilion 500-339: update video card for a 500-339 Pavilion... room with Ram?

    I posted a message here a few days ago because I wanted to find a possible upgrade for my graphics card. I have a Pavilion 500-339, 3.5 GHz with 8g of RAM. The video card is a Radeo R7 240 and I want to upgrade. Big_Dave said (thanks for that!) but I am facing another problem. The motherboard is good, but compact and I fear that new video card (because it is longer) pretty much sitting on top the RAM (if it fits in all). I know that my computer is not a "PC game", but would that be a problem? One more time card would still hold? What choices do I have? Thank you


    Aries won't present a problem of heat for the graphics card.

  • HP Pavilion 500 - 200 t: card memory HP Pavilion 500-200 t and upgrade information

    I'm about to take my 10 GB of RAM RAM 16 GB of RAM and 500-200 t has only two slots for memory card. When I replace (2 x 8 GB cards) I have two 5 GB cards flying over. I need to know the exact left specifications more cards? I want to put the card in my Dell XPS 8500 4slot who has already 2 x 4 GB cards in there. And the specifications on Dell cards are cards of DDR3 1600 MHz. Can someone tell me the specs on the HP 500-200 t maps?

    Please see the specifications of the product HP Pavilion 500-200 t and configurable Options page for the information you request. Based on the specifications, the factory in your computer memory should be 10 GB (1 x 2 GB, 1 x 8 GB) DDR3 PC3-12800. The speed is DDR3 - 1600 MHz. The size is a guess based on your statement "I'll have two 5 GB cards flying." Memory is available in sizes based on the binary progression... example... 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB, etc. There is no such thing as a 5-GB card.

    As to put in your Dell... it may or may not work depending on the latency and/or refresh, or if it is dual channel.

  • Pavilion 500-056: accidentally disabled my speakers! sound/no

    So here's the scoop. My computer (HP Pavilion 500-056) had been broken for a year now, and I finally fixed and reinstalled windows 10. Everything worked well and I was very happy until I realized that I had no sound coming out of my speakers. Through my process of DIY autour, check the cables and the entry and other output sockets, there seemed to be no problem. I went in the sound mixer, and there, I accidentally disabled my speakers, so they don't pop up on the list more! I have no idea how to turn them on now, and I still have no idea how fix my sound. If someone could help pronto, I would be very happy! Thank you!


    If they were just disabled, you can re-enable the as follows.

    Do a right-click the speaker icon in the taskbar and select "playback devices".

    In the next window, right-click on an empty area and enter a checkmark against "Show disabled devices".

    If your speakers are now listed, right-click them, then select activate.

    Kind regards

  • Update of power supply for HP Pavilion 500-056

    I want to upgrade to a discrete graphics card, but the 300 watt PSU is not enough.  It is not one of the standard sizes such as ATX12V, EPS12V, SFX12V (small footprint), LFX12V (low profile form factor), or TFX12V (slim form factor).

    Does anyone know of a specific diet that can fit in my computer case?  Without my ability to be upgraded will be severely compromised.

    According to the specs of HP Pavilion 500-056 desktop PC product page, your computer uses a power SUPPLY ATX12V PSU which is 150 x 140 x 86 mm (5.9 x 5.5 x 3.4 inches) in size. Please consider replacing it with a Corsair CX500, CX600, CX500M, or CX600M depending on your graphics card needs.

  • Pavilion 500-160ev: CPU fan control trying to figure out how to increase the number of turns of my cpu (pwm) fan in my Desktop hp Pavilion 500-160ev. I tried to do it in the BIOS, but there is no such option. Also I updated my BIOS but I can't find anywhere where to change the fan speed, the option is obviously locked. Third-party program does not work as SpeedFan.I have almost tried everything. Any ideas?

    40 c seems quite acceptable.

    The Noctua NH - D9L has a maximum speed of 2000 rpm, minimum speed of 400 rpm

    If it is open to only 800 RPM it shows me that your system runs pretty cool.

    You can install the free programReal Temp, it will show your CPU current temp as well as distance max temp and "the thermal State.

    You can run a CPU Stress Test program to test your fan. As the program your CPU at 100%, you should see the ramp speed of the fan to the top.

  • Turn on two HP Pavilion 500-319na DVI ports

    I just bought a HP Pavilion 500-319na which has been described as having 1 x HDMI, 2 x DVI video interfaces.

    The GeForce GT 705 nvidia graphics card has 1 x HDMI, 1 x DVI taken

    The motherboard has also 1 x taken DVI which was capped with a small piece of plastic with "do not remove" on the subject.

    After advice from PC World, I removed the plastic and tried the DVI socket mother who did not work.

    Is there a way of making the motherboard DVI to work in parallel with sockets of graphics cards.

    Finally, I would like to run two monitors from the DVI Sockets at the same time and have the HDMI enabled.

    This is my first Post ever anywhere so apologies if there is not enough information.

    See you soon


    Please provide the full brand and model, for both monitors information, you try to connect to your computer.

    Based on the specifications of your desktop HP Pavilion 500-319na, this model has a VGA port (analog only) integrated and an integrated port DVI - D (digital only) as shown below (please NOTE: embedded video is not available if a graphics card is installed);

    #4-VGA (analog only) # 5 - DVI - D (digital only)

    Please replace the plastic cover that you previously deleted. There is no way to activate the video ports built-in, although a discrete video card installed.

    NVIDIA GeForce GT 705
    DVI (dual-link) resolution: 2560 x 1600 x 32bpp at 60 Hz
    HDMI resolution: 1920 x 1080
    VGA (via dongle) analog resolution: 2048 x 1536 x 32bpp at 60 Hz
    Support of up to two displays at the same time.

    There are several ways to connect monitors to your computer, but you can use two ports on the NVIDIA GeForce GT 705. The discrete card supports DVI - D (and VGA via a dongle) and HDMI. HDMI signal is the same as DVI - D in this case.

    BETTER (recommended)

    Computer-> DVI - D cable-> monitor #1

    Computer-> HDMI to DVI - D cable-> Monitor #2


    Computer-> HDMI to DVI - D cable-> monitor #1

    Computer-> DVI-D/VGA dongle-> VGA cable-> Monitor #2

  • Pavilion c 500-267: HP Pavilion 500-267c 64-bit

    The hard drive on my HP Pavilion 500-267c already (I've only used the computer for 1 year) has a bad block, I am looking for a replacement.

    My questions: 1) what size hard drive I need to purchase?  Not ability, but physical size.    (2) how many bays are available?  I want really to buy 2 drives and install them both inside the tower.

    Thank you.

    The system requires at least a 1 TB hard drive. Example of what is used: SEAGATE 1 TB 7.2 K rpm SATA 3.5 INCH FORM FACTOR LFF BARRACUDA ADVANCED NCQ GRAND III.  Although you didn't want a suggestion about the ability, I always offer a maximum of 2 TB. Something more grand requires special formatting settings.

    Now on adding a drive... you will need to inspect the chassis.  Now, I was unable to determine the configuration of car cage.  This example pageis very generic, it shows both styles (single or multi).

  • two monitors for HP Pavilion 500-007 a

    I am considering buying desktop HP Pavilion 500-007 a little time. I already have two monitors TeamViewer, two support DVI - I and VGA I'm running just one of the monitors on a HP Pavilion dv7 laptop (laptop current ongoing died after 3 years continuous use).  The current system gives me two monitors to view, computer laptop 17 '' monitor and the Samsung 24 "monitor. I have also a 19 '' Samsung monitor with the same characteristics as the 24 "monitor.

    I want to know if I can use both monitors Samsung on the new office at the same time with good results.

    Both monitors have no HDMI, only DVI - I and VGA connections.

    The new system, I would like to start the monitor 24 "using the DVI - I format and the same thing with a 19" monitor, but the specs of the 500-007 a give only 1 DVI-I have the graphics card or via a connection through HDMI, and then on the motherboard, it shows a VGA port.

    What is the best: run 24 '' via DVI - I and the 19 "via VGA or execution 24" via DVI - I and get a DVI - I to HDMI converstion and run two monitors to the graphics card, or alternatively the 24 "on DVI - I and 19" on VGA.

    I use photoshop for photo editing, as I do a lot of photography work. Videos etc are not a primary, or games, but as also older in order to use the 24 "to better on Visual acuity.

    Thanks Ailsa

    This is the original factory specifications for the desktop HP Pavilion 500-007 a. According to the specification, this model has an AMD Radeon HD 8570 discrete graphics card that supports the use of two simultaneous displays. That this computer is equipped with a discreet graphics card, the video ports on-board integrated are disabled.
