Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook ?

Memory Upgrade I have an HP Pavilion dv2000, about 1 year old. It has vista, but only 958 MB of RAM. It runs slow and loud and has trouble playing videos from the internet and DVDs. Would upgrading to 2 GB of RAM be likely to fix these problems? If I took my laptop to a BestBuy store near me and purchased the RAM there, would they also install it for me? My laptop was purchased at a BestBuy, but it was a gift and I do not have the receipt or warranty.


Answers :

Increasing the amount of RAM will always help your laptop's performance. However, in this case, I would try going to HP's web site and updating the video drivers or try a different program to play DVD's. 958 should be more than enough RAM to run DVD's smoothly. You can find DVD software at filehippo.com for free.
\015\012As for RAM instalation:
\015\012I would only let Bestbuy install them if it's free. Installing memory chips is simple, they're located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. (Be sure to power down first) Do it yourself and use the money you save on the outrageous gas prices.

My HP Pavilion zt1170 fails to boot 90% of the time. Once power was turned on, I could hear the fan run for one second and stopped. No video, yet the LED was on. It seems like it froze. Occasionally, it booted up successfully and it would work normally. However, it would freeze up if there's no activity for a few minutes. Any idea???


I also have a ZT 1170 and it began to do the same thing. It was a bad solder joint in the RAM slot connector in the bottom of the laptop. It would intermittently cause the laptop to hang on bootup, or to randomly lockup. \015\012This laptop has ... HP Pavilion zt1170 Notebook
