Want to add RAM to my Pavillion DV 1000 and I know

\015 Want to add RAM to my 3 year old Pavillion DV 1000 and I know that the HP has two slots, what does it come with and what RAM should I add for maximum performance? \015\012Thank You, Jim\015

Answers :

Jim,
the HP Pavilion dv1000 Series Notebook PC's, can come with either one Module (Stick) of ram memory, or two.
Generally it's just one.

1.Amount: 256MegaBytes (256MB)

2.Style: DDR Sdram that is SO-DIMM

3.Frequency Rate: (Slang term is 'Speed') 266MegaHertz (266MHz)

In otherwords, it's one stick of PC2100 that is SO-DIMM style for laptops,
and is 256MB in size, or 512MB in size.
(Amount)

As said, your laptop has two ram slots.

1) EACH ram slot has a Maximum Amount of 1GB

2) The Total Amount for the laptop is 2GB.

3) PC2100, or DDR Sdram that operates at 266MHz is what the laptop came with.

You can use PC2700.
DDR Sdram that operates at 333MHz.

You can use Two - 1GB sticks of PC2700 that is for laptops. It will be SO-DIMM.

{MHz stands for MegaHertz
Mega = approximately 1 Million
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second
333MHz stands for 333 Million Cycles per Second}

This is an example of a 1GB stick of PC2700 SO-DIMM, ram memory module,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1558839&CatId=4155

(Desktop ram memory that is DDR Sdram, has 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
92 on each side.

Laptop ram memory that is DDR Sdram, has 200 gold plated contact pins on the bottom. 100 on each side.
The SO-DIMM ram memory module, is shorter in length, than the desktop ram memory module.

Made that way to conserve space for using in a laptop)

NOTE*
At the bottom of a ram memory module there is a Notch. A small square cutout.

This Notch lines up with a Locating Lug, in the bottom of the ram slot.

At first glance it looks to be in the center.
IT IS NOT.
You need to orient the ram module so that it lines up with the Locating Notch, before inserting it.

Advise work on a table. If you have a carpeted floor under the table, avoid swing your feet across the carpet.
Your body carries Static electricity. Static electricity will fry out the delicate hardware components in a computer.

Handle the ram module by the sides, or top.
This area is coated with a see-through plastic.

Avoid contact with the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram module.

IF, you have ANY doubts at all about purchasing ram memory modules, I advise you go with a website that sells ram memory, and buy from them.

If the ram memory module does not work, you can return it.

Not advertising, but you may want to check out Crucial.com

They are a reputable ram memory dealer. They have a scan you can use, to automatically find what ram memory you have installed, and guide you with choices of ram memory to buy.

When on their homepage, Left-click on the blue -
Scan My System - button.
It just scans you hardware components on your computer, not your personal information.

There are other websites on the internet also.

Have any further questions, or need clarifying on what I have stated, I'm right here.
Refer to the manual that comes with your Notebook when you purchase it.
Here is the manual link for Hardware & Software guide
