Hp pavilion gaming desktop tg01 0023w

So I bought my first gaming pc installed 16gb of ddr4 ram 3200mhz but it’s not running at full speed instead it’s running at 2133mhz how do I overclock my ram correctly to 3200mhz I already tried going into the bios but there’s no option for xmp or to find how to change ram speed and I also tried Ryzen master but my pc wouldn’t boot back up so I had to take out the battery and let it sit out for 10 seconds and put it back in then I was good but now I’m jus curious as to how I properly can overclock my ram

You are not the first person on this discussion forum to have this issue -- the RAM that you purchased is not 100% compatible with the RAM that HP supplied when you bought the computer. So, the motherboard chooses to run the RAM at a slower speed.  Search within this forum, to find the other similar threads.


What manufacturer and model-number of RAM did you purchase?

If you remove that RAM, and reconnect the original RAM, does that RAM run at 3200 ?

I haven’t tried putting in the original stick of ram to see if it runs at 3200mhz, I’ll try that right now, but I purchased Corsair vengeance rgb pro 2x8gb 16gb 3200mhz for my ram at Best Buy

(Update)  -  I put in my original 8gb stick of ram by hp and checked the speed and it runs at a full 3200mhz

@Doomiel -- From the HP Warehouse web-site:




I see that the factory-installed RAM is:  934254-800 Memory - GNRC RAM UDIMM 8G DDR4 1.2V 2666

Unfortunately, I also see "N/A" -- meaning Not Available for purchase from HP through this web-site.


Can you find a stick of this RAM?

From: https://www.memorystock.com/memory/HewlettPackardPavilionGamingTG010023w.html


The HP Pavilion Gaming TG01-0023w Computer takes the DDR4 PC4-25600 3200MHz Non-ECC DIMM memory type,
and comes installed with 8GB memory.


How much memory does the HP Pavilion Gaming TG01-0023w Computer take?
You can upgrade your HP Pavilion Gaming TG01-0023w Computer to up to a maximum memory capacity of 32GB Memory.


How many total memory slots to install memory?
The Computer has 2 Slots to install memory, already with 8 GB standard memory installed.


I did a Google-search for "934254-800", and found several vendors that sell this RAM (it matches the original 8 GB stick).

So, buy one, and install it, to upgrade from the original 8 GB of RAM to 16 GB of RAM.
