HP 530 NOTEBOOK RAM UPGRADE

Product Name: HP 530
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

Hello, recently i replaced the ram memory of my notebook. It had 256 MB and I put  2 GB.

My notebook really transformed so I decided to put another 2 GB memory card exactly the same as the first one.

My problem is that when i put each one of the cards the notebook operates, but it doesnt with both!!!

Does anyone can help please?

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the quickspecs for your notebook.

 

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/archives_Canada/12722_ca_v5/12722_ca.PDF

 

The notebook only supports a max of 2 GB of memory (see page 2).

 

If your notebook has a Celeron processor, then it has the Mobile Intel 940 GML chipset which only supports 2 GB of memory.

You're very welcome.

 

You actually would get a slightly better bit of performance out of your notebook by installing 2 x 1 GB of memory if you happen to have some lying around that have the same specs as required by your notebook.

 

That way it would run in DDR mode.  Your 2 GB chip is only running in SDR mode.
