Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a hp pav ze5170 with two memory slots with 1gb of ram i would like to upgrade to two gb of ram but it will not except 2 gb what do i need to do to except two 1 gb in each slot.

Answers :

This computer can only accept 1gb ram MAX.
\015\012There is no way that you can get it to accept any more than that.
Go to HP support site and see if they have released a BIOS update for your laptop that will accept a higher amount of ram. There have been some instances of BIOS updates from manufacturers to correct this issue. Just realize that if you are successful, A 32 bit windows operating system will only recognize 3 gb of that ram. To see the full 4 gb, you havr to step up to a 64 bit operating system.
