RAM on HP 17-ca0xxx

Just so you know - the inside of my laptop was nothing like the service manual you sent. Not your fsault - everything about this laptop is screwey. I cant even find parts on the HP website to replace the feet that tore when opening the bottom. Not available for outside purchase. I bought this laptop because I was in love with the last Pavillion I had for 6 years - but this is the lousieest piece of trash I have ever owned. My last was 1.1 GHz this is 3.10 - the last was twice as fast, didn't have to buffer for tonline streaming from Netflix, and Hulu. I get really depressed when I think I'm stuck with this clunker for a few years.

 

Sorry - didn't mean to unload on you - thanks for the help!!!

(RAM installed - no problems)

RAM on HP 17-ca0xxx

 

HI

 

I'm facing a similar question

envisaging to purchase ca-0013 (with Ryzen 5 & Vega 8, but only 4 GB RAm & Drive 500 GB), I'm dobble-checking few things:

as to extension capabilty ...

 

Reading the document HP 17  Laptop PC Maintenance and Service Guide
I found contradictory information :

"memory is non-customer accessible/non-upgradeable" is stated ...

YET a procedure describes how to extend RAM a bit further in the doc ...

 

??

 

Could you manage finally to upgrade / extend the RAM of your laptop ?

 

regards

Franck

Do yourself a favor - it only gets worse, believe me - dump the **bleep** now and save yourself some grief. I can't even sell this on CL or eBay for junk or parts. I LOVED my last HP Pavillion which is why I bought this one. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!

Yep - I financed mine too - bought it through HSN. About a week after the 30 day return it craped out and I tried to return it. They wouldn't take it although they had taken other products after the 30 day period cause I have been with them for so long. Sent it back to HP and they replaced the HD. It quit again the local tech said it was the motherboard - cost more to replace it than it was worth. Long story short - I kept making the payments although I couldn't use it until I had to go into the hosp and missed one - The jerk from the bank who called about the late payment was so rude and abusive I haven't made a payment since. Ruined my credit - D**n sure worth it.
