HP Compaq 6200 Pro Series Ram Upgrade Problems

Product Name: HP Compaq 6200 Pro Series
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

Im attempting to upgrade my HP Compaq 6200 Pro Series from 4gb ram to 8gb- I bought 8GB RAM 1333MHz DDR3 as per specifications in the manual and I'm just getting beeping when I install it.

 

For reference I ordered this product-

https://www.cclonline.com/product/144252/647897-B21/Desktop-Memory/HP-8GB-Memory-Module-PC3L-10600-1...

 

And used this document for reference (page 7)-

Hi,

 

Now the memory you bought seems to be "server" memory (ECC buffered memory) even if on the site you linked it says otherwise. Howeverif you take the part number 647897-B21 and look on different sites (many) you can see the specs.

 

Example:

http://www.harddrivesdirect.com/product_info.php?products_id=461018

 

Also the picture indicates it is ECC memory. This will not work in your desktop.

 

You need " non-ECC unbuffered DDR3 memory" such as

Hope it helps,

David

Re: HP Compaq 6200 Pro Series Ram Upgrade Problems

Thank you very much for your help, sadly on investigation I think you may be right!

 

I hope the company's returns policy is good as I've actually ordered these for 12 PCs!!
