Hello community of HP. I have been trying to upgrade my system for some time now and it seems no matter what I do I cannot get these sticks I have purchased to work in my PC.
My full specifications are below.
CPU: Intel core i5 650 1st gen
Memory: 2x2GB 1333MHz non ECC
Storage: 1TB Seagate HDD
GPU: GT 1030 SFF OC
PSU: Default shipped with the unit
The new memory specifications below.
2x4GB 1333MHz non ECC, and is on 10600
I am unsure of what is causing the issue, and want to fix it because I cannot afford more memory at this time.
The exact outcome is a single boot failure and reboot, and then my power supply becomes very loud with no video output.
the 8100 uses slots 1/3 as the first bank of ram, with bank 2 using slots 2/4
the memory modules "Rank" must match in each ram bank (IE- rank=2) check ram label for rank info
16 meg is all HP certified for this model
if using only 2 ram modules you will use one white and one black (dual memory channel mode)
if using 4 modules all slots filled using 2x8 dimms
I have already done what you suggested but I am a wee bit confused on the "Rank" aspect and how it would be labeled on my DIMM.
I will type out the labels below for both what came with the machine and the new DIMM's.
(Samsung) 2GB 1Rx8 PC3-10600U-09-10-A0
(A-TECH) 4GB DDR3 PC3-10600 DIMM/1333MHz
2rx8 1.5v 89365
6521 AA 5514 L/H445/V
I am gonna be honest, I have no real clue what half of that means. But I hope you can try and help me understand what is going on.
Note: The upgrade I am going for is a replacement of the prior two 2GB sticks so I had them in correctly.
the system you have is quite picky on ram, i have a 8300/6300 and have also come across ram issues.
you need 10600U (unbuffered) ram 10600R (Registered) will not work, again "U" = good R= Bad for your system
bad ram (registered)
not all memory modules will work in these systems you really need to use approved memory
visit the micron website for approved ram
in your listing of the ram specs, note the "2Rx8" and "1Rx8" 2R= rank=2, and 1R=Rank=1
it's possible to get 4GB ram in R1 and R2, which can not be mixed together in a memory bank
it's possible to get 8GB ram in R2 and R4, which can not be mixed together in a memory bank
your system has two memory banks (black and white dimm slots) each bank uses two dimms
other systems can have more banks, depending on the memory controller used
