HP pavilion g6-1066se maximum RAM memory

Hi, I want to know what is the maximum memory of my note book (HP pavilion g6-1066se).

 

Installed RAM: (4x1 GB)

 

I'm hoping to upgrade to 8GB RAM.

 

Thanks.

According to the service manual you can.

 

See Chapter 1, page 3.

Hi:

 

I your notebook comes with 4 GB and is capable of being upgraded with another 4 GB chip to 8 GB total.

 

If you live in the USA, this is the notebook memory I use:

You can also get Kingston memory for a couple of dollars more.

Re: HP pavilion g6-1066se maximum RAM memory

I checked the manual for my pavillion G6 series. It lists different memory patterns compatible in the computer (the max being 8 gigabytes) but the highest pattern it states is 6 gigabytes (4096 MBx1 + 2048 MBX1), nowhere does it mention a pattern for 8 GB's. Is it possible to use the following pattern, 4096 MB x 2 (two 4Gb memory sticks)??

Re: HP pavilion g6-1066se maximum RAM memory

Hi:

 

I'm thinking that the manual is incorrect. If it can run 4 GB in one slot, then it should be able to run 4 GB in both slots.

 

Run the free crucial memory advisor and see what it reports you can do.

Re: HP pavilion g6-1066se maximum RAM memory

Can someone tell me where I can find my appropriate model number? I'm also trying to find the maximum amount of RAM I can add.

 

I know I have a HP Pavillion G6, but don't know the rest of the number, i.e. it's a G6-xxxx?

 

I found my product number, which is A3J87UA#ABC, but I can't find the max RAM info from this.
