Pavilion dv7-2050sm: SSD and RAM upgrade questions

Hello

I have two question about upgrading my laptop. I use it for web surfing, movies, some excellent/word work etc... for the most part on a regular basis.

(1) I have seen that my RAM can be upgraded to 8 GB. Currently, I am working at 1333 MHz 4RAM. If I buy 2 x 4 GB 1600 MHz will it work on this laptop, I went into the BIOS and have not seen that I can change the speed of ram anywhere nor has seen how much can this support for portable computers, so should I buy 1x4Go 1333 MHz instead if it only supports 1600 MHz.

(2) can I put my disk HARD 700 GB Seagate 5400 RPM SATA II 3.0 Gbps with Samsung 850EVO 250 GB SSD? I know that SATA III drives are retro-compatible meaning can work on SATA II but is it useful, how much speed will I use if my laptop does not support SATA III.

Laptop computer product number: B4E42EA

Chipset: AMD A70M FCH

CPU: Improved A6 4460 M to 4600 M A10

Thank you!

It will not run at 1600 mhz just so buy another 4 GB of DDR3-1333 memory. The SSD is the best upgrade you can do. Certainly worth. SSD SATA-III will work fine on a SATA-II bus. There is very little difference in actual operation.

    This is an adapter.

    3. the quantity of RAM max supported Satellite L500D? I installed 2GB and I have an extra plug and I want to install a single 4 GB RAM and 6 GB RAM total

    Its sounds good to you this idea? I thank you and have a nice day

    Hey,.

    As you can see on the underside of the laptop doesn t supports a second HDD because there is no second Bay HARD drive on the underside.
    The map you posted is unofficial so no one can say whether it compatible s part or not. For laptops Satellite AFAIK there is no CD/DVD Bay adapter, but you can ask a provider of service authorized for more details.

    The maximum RAM capacity depends on your phone model correct. L500D was delivered with different hardware, so you must post your exact model laptop number.

  • The SSD and RAM upgrade

    I have the 13-inch Retina Display early 2015 model. It contains 128 GB SSD and 8 GB of RAM.

    I wanted to update both of them. Is this possible? I agree with HARD drive even if that is supported. 128 GB is not enough for me actually.

    Help, please.

    Without the SSD and RAM are both not upgradable.

    One option is to sell your computer and use the money to buy a new one with the features you need.

    There are two options to add an HD card to your card HD slot. Both options will be flush with the case.

  • Example: Pavilion 15-n201ax: gpu and ram upgrades

    Hello, I want to k now can I put my laptop (Pavilion 15-n201ax) gpu and ram? Thanks in advance!

    Number on the GPU. You already have the top of the page mother/processor board and there is no way to add or replace it with a better graphics in any system. On memory, you have 8 GB. This is the Manual:

    Link repair manuals

    Officially, the maximum is 12 concerts but here users have reported success with 16. You do not have an easily accessible memory Bay and you should have an open memory slot to add a SO-DIMM DDR3L-1600 to upgrade memory. I seriously doubt you will see much of a difference, but I have 16 gigs in my laptop then I say, go ahead.

    (1) will require computer support dual-boot Linux OS like Ubuntu and CentOS 64-bit?

    It has 8 gigs in a single module, so all you have to do is add another module of 8 GB to 16. This particular model is a specific configuration and HP do not at this level off the coast of this issue of model, but you can order the same thing as a custom to order and get 16 gigs. If not upgrade memory isn't too hard on that one, and the upgrade, it'll be cheaper.

    See p. 46 here:

    Repair manuals

    Manual specifications say it tops out at 8 gigs, but this has been proven incorrect and tackling the 16 concerts if you put two x 8 concert DDR3L-1600 modules.

    Yes, you can dual boot a modern Linux distribution. Ubuntu 64 bit 15.04 and 15.10 will work off UEFI and Secure Boot for example and allow you to install right next to Windows 10 using the grub bootloader to choose your operating system at startup.

  • Pavilion dv7t-3300: weird behavior after adding the SSD and RAM upgrade

    Has just added a new HD SSD to my note as "disk 1"(the former one is 'disk 0', he has a Win. " 8.1 works). Installed Win. 10 in the new drive and everything has worked well so far. I tried to upgrade the memory, so I bought two Crucial DDR3 1333 with 8 GB memory each, the previos configuration were two 2 GB memory (4 GB total).

    The question is: If you use a single memory (8 GB) everything looks Ok. If I add the other (16 GB total), the new SSD is not recognized, but the old man works as usual. The new drive is not yet recognized after botting from the former (not even from the Disk Manager). Already tried to drag the disks with no luck. There seems to be something with the memory, since everything works with a memory of 8 GB or with two 2 GB memory, but with two memoirs of 8Gb the new SSD seems to be dead

    Advice or similar experiences? Is there something that I am missing?

    So much worse... the SSD seems to be broken or something similar. Does not work on the other PC, then... I guess that this has nothing to do with the memory

    BTW, the 16 GB are works fine

  • Satellite U300 - help hardware upgrade to SSD and RAM

    Hello world
    I want to completely upgrade my toshiba satellite U300-140, mount VISTA and default the technical features, posted above.

    I need your help to choose the best (and economic) device SSD and RAM slot. It is very important for me to know what is probably compatible with my device. Please, could you help me in your experience?

    And... an SSD is worthy, at the speed of my laptop? I was thinking about kingston 120 Gb or 240 GB V300

    http://www.Toshiba.it/discontinued-p...Lite-U300-14O/

    According to specification for laptop, you can be upgraded up to 4 GB RAM in order to use 2 x 2 GB of RAM. The compatible RAM modules have PA3513U-1M2G part number.

    I think with SSD, you shouldn't have any problems. I updated my old P500 with 250 GB Samsung 840 SSD and it works perfectly.

  • SSD and RAM on my W530 installation will void the warranty?

    SSD and RAM on my W530 installation will void the warranty?

    Adil is correct. The RAM and hard drive are considered "replaceable consumer units", which means Lenovo allows not only, but expect end users to manage any updates of these components by themselves.

  • HP Pavilion dv6 6c51ea: upgrade of the dv6 6c51ea ssd and ram wifi card

    Hello
    As of late I thought the upgrade or replace my laptop, but I have a few questions to help me decide.
    First ram cited the speed of the processor is listed as 1066/1333 hz, however I can not check it on the site of hp and the crucial site recommend ddr3 at 1600 hz, the site hp also says is that 8 GB however apparently due to the fact that it was released on Windows 7 However the processor can support 16 GB max memory support and since upgrading to win 10 my system would be doing, is this correct?

    What kind of improvements I see by installing an ssd (Samsung evo 850) 500 GB?

    And finally the wifi card could be readily available and upgraded to the new ac wifi to use the router to HQ and speeds mon is provides and I pay!

    So basically will be the ssd, 2 x 8 GB 1600 mhz sodimm ram, and a wifi amd card equipped for the £300 it cost would he give me the jump in performance for his money as the cpu and gpu are rather dated now (i5 2450 m and radeon 7470 m) when a new system with an i5 4th gen with 1 GB graphics , 500 GB and 16 GB of ram, ssd would cost about £900 what would be the main benefits

    Thank you very much

    Shott

    I stand well partially corrected. The 8 gig RAM max was on the technical page of HP and the maintenance manual says maximum 16 concerts. As you note, it will run at 1333 mhz, but yes you can install 16 gigs and upgrade to Windows 10 made no difference there. You may installed 16 concerts with all 64-bit operating systems.

    Here is the Manual:

    Your repair manuals

    Page 28 - 29 a the list of supported wireless adapters EXCEPT the

    Module Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230 WLAN 631956-001

    a mistake is well-documented. The part number is actually a single band card Ralink and other versions of HP of the 6230 Advanced-N used in some business models will not work in your laptop. We beat this horse dead on many posts here.

  • Pavilion g6-2202tx C0P15PA: upgrade: g6-2202tx C0P15PA Pavilion: backlit keyboard, battery and RAM

    Hello

    Product name: g6-2202tx Pavilion

    Product number: C0P15PA

    OS: windows 10 (64-bit)

    Location: Mumbai, India.

    I want to update my laptop ram and replace his keyboard.

    Laptop comes with 4 GB of ram which has 800 MHz frequency (you can pl confirm that?).
    As product specifications page indicates that frequency of 1600 MHz is supported by the motherboard, I'll buy extra 4gigs of memory at 1600 MHz. Sera - what a good choice, or despite the frequency of 1600 MHz, the two ram runs at 800 MHz? I would have to buy 8 GB memory at 1600 MHz. can you pl developed on the same.

    Secondly, I have "keyboard full size style Island w / pad" keyboard, which is not backlit. and I really need a backlit keyboard, I can replace the keyboard with a backlit keyboard of HP. If Yes, can you pl tell me the process? Is the laptop motherboard supports backlit keyboard? will I need to update the firmware and driver for the same? I can buy a market?

    Backup of my laptop battery has significantly reduced. In recent days, I also get a message at startup, which suggests for the replacement of the battery. Where can I buy a new battery? What specifications I need to know to buy a battery compatible, true.

    My laptop is under warranty HP on site. (the battery is not under warranty, as collateral for the battery has expired.)

    How does the whole scenario fits with the product under warranty.

  • Pavilion dv7-6178us: SSD SATA dv7-6178us which is Compatible with my laptop?

    I have a Pavilion dv7-6178us laptop 'hand', and I would like to change the existing hard drive.  I understand that it came originally with a 750 GB SATA drive at 5400 RPM, but I inherited mine with only 100 GB SATA, OUCH!  I would like to upgrade my drive to a SSD for the best possible performance, and then add a larger disk for storage.  When you are looking for different drives, I came across SATA I, SATA II and SATA III and I can not figure out which is compatible with my computer or what he came originally with.

    Which SATA (I, II or III) is compatible with the dv7-6178us?

    What is the largest compatible SSD, or should I expect for the best performance?

    What is the greatest player I can additionally ADD the SSD for storage?

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

    Which SATA (I, II or III) is compatible with the dv7-6178us? Specification the SATA is backward compatible. This means that disks SSD SATA type will work in your notebook. The SSD will be made only to the level of specification SATA your SATA controller is capable of. If the controiller is SATA150 so your SSD SATA600 installed work bandwidth SATA150.

    What is the largest compatible SSD, or should I expect for the best performance? , You can install one with the largest capacity you can afford.  I would recommend not to install a larger than 512 GB. My own brand preferences are Intel, OCZ Technology, Samsung and SSD Crucial.  Purchase of the SSD in upgrade kit is the simplest solution. Upgrade kits come with a SATA to USB cable and cloning software making it a fairly simple process to upgrade the laptop. See the post-it that I wrote at the top of the section of portable equipment for some details on this. 

    What is the greatest player I can additionally ADD the SSD for storage? I recommend you not to install any disk hard legacy with a capacity greater than 1 terabyte. There is no guarantee that a superior who will work as expected.

    The following information is the maintenance guide & computer Support laptop dv7 to refers to the physical size of existing hard drives.

    6.35 cm (2.5 in) drives supports hard drives to 12.7 mm (. 50 inches), 9.5 mm (. 37-in) and thicknesses of 7.0 mm (. 28 - in)
