HP Desktop - 110-405il
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a HP 110-405il Desktop PC and want to upgrade my RAM module but didn't able to find one. I checked on the HP site and there's no way to find the compatible ram stick for my pc. The first thing which it makes it difficult is that the current RAM slot is using the laptop size stick but on a command prompt its showing DIMM form factor.

 

My pc reference: https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c04434105

Here's all details which i found in CMD: https://i.imgur.com/VueCGby.png 

So , i just want to know if i purchase a SODIMM memory module with all other similar specs will it work on my pc ?

Since you indicated that you only have one working memory slot, any memory you install is only going to run in single channel mode.

 

There is no such thing as single or dual channel memory.

 

Memory is memory.

 

Single or dual channel is the mode in which the memory runs.

 

In order for the memory to run in dual channel mode, you have to install matching memory capacities in both slots (example 2 x 4 GB).

Hi:

 

If you look at the motherboard specs, your notebook uses notebook type (SODIMM) memory.

 

HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Motherboard Specifications (Nutmeg-C) | HP® Customer Support

 

You can buy a compatible memory for your PC from Crucial.

 

Memory RAM & SSD Upgrades | hp - compaq | hp 110 | HP 110-405il | Crucial.com

 

You can buy the above compatible memory part number from Amazon, India.

Hi Paul, Thank you for the suggestion and the references but i have one question, will it support 1600MHz becoz i saw one comment on amazon today and the customer report that he bought the 8gb1600Mhz crucial and that didn't run on his system.

 

P.S I want to upgrade to 8gb

HP Recommended

You're very welcome.

 

It should work because the memory is supposed to automatically bridge to 1333 MHz, and DDR3L (1.35V) memory has to run at 1.5V in order to meet the DDR3 memory specifications.  DDR3 (1.5V) memory does not run at 1.35V.

 

Otherwise, you would have to find a compatible DDR3-1333 (PC3-10600) 1.5V memory chips.

 

I know this one would probably work but I don't know if you can buy this model memory in India.

Hope this'ill work.

Hi:

 

That memory won't work because it is a single 8 GB chip.

 

Your PC supports a max of 2 x 4 GB.

 

Can you find a 4 GB memory chip from them?

 

That's what you would need.

HP Recommended

I want to use just a single 8 gb ram stick. Other slot will remain empty. Will it work then?

I have 64 bit windows.

 

Yes they have 4 GB memory chip but i need to upgrade to 8 gigs and my second slot is damaged.

HP Recommended

Not according to the memory upgrade info from HP...

 

  • Dual channel memory architecture
  • Two 204-pin DDR3L SODIMM sockets
  • Supports DDR3L SODIMMs
    • PC3L-10600 (1333 MHz)
  • Supports up to 4 GB on 32-bit* systems
  • Supports up to 8 GB on 64-bit systems

The 8 GB would mean 2 x 4 GB, not 1 x 8 GB

 

You can do this to see how much memory your PC can support...

 

1. In the search box, search for cmd and click Run as administrator.

 

This will open the command prompt.

 

2. Once command prompt is opened, type wmic memphysical get maxcapacityEx and hit enter.

 

There, it will show the maximum RAM capacity your PC's motherboard can support.

 

The capacity is shown as Kilobytes, so you have to convert it to Gigabytes by dividing the number provided in the report by 1,048,576.

HP Recommended

Yes it's showing MaxCapacityEx
8388608

 

So i can only put 1X4 right now becoz my another slot not working 😞

HP Recommended

I wouldn't trust installing an 8 GB chip in the one slot.

 

If you want to risk over 2500 Rs on the 8 GB chip in one slot, you may want to only if you can return the memory if it doesn't work.
