Solved!

Ram upgrade not working

HP Recommended
Hp Compaq 6000 Pro MT
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hello, so recently I bought a new pair of ram sticks called Timetec Hynix IC DDR3 1333MHz PC3-10600 Unbuffered Non-ECC 1.5V CL9 2Rx8 Dual Rank 240 Pin UDIMM Desktop Memory Ram Module Upgrade (16GB Kit (2 x 8GB)).  I tried switching slots and  using a single stick, everything I can think of failed and gave 5 beeps. Maybe im just missing something. Can someone please help me.

 

Thank you

this series of business systems are very picky about which ram modules they will work with, as i recall, the system only supports 16 megs total 

 

i have or have had the 4300/600/630 and elite 8300 models and all of them gave issues with several types/brands of ram that would work fine in other systems

 

go to crucial's website for hp approved/tested ram modules or buy from a vender who specifically states the modules are compatible

 

also proper slot filling is extremely important

you use the black socket closest from the cpu as the first dimm #1 then white slot #3 with same sized/type ram , then white slot #2 and last black slot #4

Hi, @Ellio 

 

DGroves is 100% correct regarding the memory requirements for the 6000 Pro, 8000 Elite, and 8100 Elite CMT business desktops.

 

This is the memory I used in my 8000 Elite CMT which is basically the upscale model of the 6000 Pro.

 

Patriot Signature 4 GB PC3-10600 (1333 MHz) DDR3 Desktop Memory PSD34G13332: Amazon.ca: Electronics

 

That will solve your dilemma.
