Re: hp dv7 6153ea memory issue



That would indicate you have DDR3 @1333MHz.  What do you believe the memory should be?

Re: hp dv7 6153ea memory issue

hi david


 the laptop just seems a bit slow for the spec that it actully is, and the timings for the ram are just appalling.  tweeking the ram i feel would make it run the way i want it to. it could be me though being a bit paranoid and thinking its slow when in fact its not,at first glance when i went into cpuz i saw 667mhz and i remember back i the day when i had ddr2 running at that freq.but i do trust your judement  alarm bells started to ring in my head when i saw 667mhz.


so for an upgrade then would i be correct thinking that i can use any laptop memory up1600mhz and no more than 8gig. is the 8gig limitation due to the motherboard. 


god i need a bios mod it would help so much.

The 8 gig limit is a practical thing I believe....modules larger than 4 gigs each are not available that I have seen so no one talks about them.
