DV6-3057er upgrade RAM

HP Recommended
dv6-3057er
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to increase the amount of RAM, but I do not know what frequency is supported by the laptop motherboard.

Usually such information is contained on the official website, but in this case it is not.

As far as I know, the default memory is 1066 MHz. But there is no such memory now in the stores.

 

I'm sure that the motherboard supports the modern memory frequency. But which ones?

Well you asked for a more detailed explanation than just "DDR3". Here is the Service manual:

 

Manual

 

See p. 4. Some models run memory at 1333 mhz but not yours. But specified memory module is DDR3-1333:

 

Memory modules (DDR3 PC3-10600 1333-MHz) 4096-MB 599092-001

 

This will work but will downclock to 1066 speed:

Likely DDR3-1600 will also work but it needs to be low density (8 black blocks on the side, not 4) and it needs to be 1.5 volt not 1.35 volt. And even with that I cannot guarantee DDR3-1600 will actually work.

Thanks for your reply. But the question is the frequency (speed) of memory that the motherboard supports.

Can I install a memory with a frequency of 1333 MHz or 1600 MHz?

 

Thanks!

I added a bit to my answer but your question was actually already answered. The motherboard will run the memory at 1066 mhz. We know that the specified DDR3-1333 will work but will downclock to 1066 mhz in operation. We also believe DDR3-1600 will work with the noted limitations. Most of what you find in retail stores right now is going to be low voltage DDR3-1600 which is not likely to work.
