Hi


Go through this specs, I assume this is the laptop model you are having: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01634435&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3860626

Max: 8GB

HP Part store component listing: http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?SearchText=NB234UA

RAM config listed in your laptop is: 800MHz, 200-pin, PC2-6400, SODIMM SDRAM


There are 2 slots in the memory bay, you could add another 4GB with the above config

I couldn't find service manual,

Download, run this app- http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html ,

 

you can find the config of RAM already present in your system & confirm it,  buy an identical one, same brand is ideal.

This is the one we're looking for:

Hi,

 

There is no such "HP dV 7 1243 ci" only  "HP Pavilion dv7-1243cl". Please check the following link:

 

    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01634435&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en...

 

It supports 8Gb max.

 

Regards.
