HP Compaq Presario CQ43, additional RAM

HI

 

I have HP Compaq Presario CQ43, 

AMD E-300 APU with radeon (tm) graphics  1.30 Ghz.

It is shipped with 2 GB Ram

My question is can I add 2 GB more RAM capacity explicitly to this processor

Re: HP Compaq Presario CQ43, additional RAM

Your laptop actually supports up to 8 gb of DDR3 memory. The first thing you have to figure out is how it is currently configured. 2 gb models shipped either with 2 x 1 gb modules or 1 x 2. If you have a single 2 gig you just need to buy another. If you have 2 x 1 gb you need to buy 2 x 2 gb modules. Also, you need to be running 64 bit Windows to use 4 or more gb of memory. 2 gb models likely shipped with a 32 bit version.

Hi,

 

Yes, you should have no problem with 4Gb ( ie 2 x 2Gb ) of ram.  See Page 45 of your Maintenance & Service Guide.
