How to install 2+GB memory in hp dv6338?There are a few different posts on various forums that it's possible. I'm interested in upgrading to windows 7. How do i install more memory?>


Answers :

Your system (dv6338) can support up to 4GB of memory when running Windows 7. However, you need to determine some basic information about your computer's memory before upgrading. This is what I recommend you do:

1. Shut down the computer.
2. Remove the a/c power cord and the battery (this ensures no power can find its way into the system).
3. Press the power button (this dissipates any remaining electricity in the laptop).
4. Ground yourself to discharge any static electricity (Static electricity will literally destroy electronics in your system. There's no such thing as a "small shock" when it comes to static electricity and computer hardware. Always ground yourself when working near the computer's hardware).
5. Turn over the computer and unscrew the memory module with the use of a phillips head screwdriver (Picture of the module).
6. Once removed, see how many memory slots are available (if any) and how many there are (Picture of the memory).
7. Now take a moment to determine what type of memory you currently have installed (To do this, you might have to remove the memory by releasing the side-catches). Generally this information is listed on the memory's sticker (Picture). The pertinent information we're after is if the memory type is DDR or DDR2 and what the memory speed happens to be (333Mhz or 533 Mhz). We also want to know how much memory you have. Is the stick 512MB or 1024MB?

If you have one stick of RAM with a size of 1024MB, you might consider simply buying another stick of RAM (or possibly multiple sticks of RAM) to add to the existing stick. The downside of this is that the memory will run slowly since it's not paired. However, it's your money and your decision.

8. Now head over to an online shop such as Newegg (In the case you use Newegg, navigate to Computer Hardware > Memory > Laptop Memory) or use HP's How to Buy guide.
9. Locate and purchase memory which is of the same type and speed (if your computer currently uses 333Mhz DDR memory, buy 333Mhz DDR. If your computer has 533Mhz DDR2, buy 533Mhz DDR2).

NOTE: If you intend to pair memory, DO NOT buy individual sticks of RAM, even if you intend to buy more than one of the same product! When pairing memory, buy them as a single product in a pack. In the case of Newegg, searching for, "OCZ2M8004GK" displays an example of a paired memory pack.

10. Once the memory arrives, install it into your system alongside the existing memory or by removing the existing memory then installing the new memory.
11. Start your system and listen for strange sounds and/or beep codes. If nothing out of the ordinary occurs and the system starts, IT WORKED! If, however, the system does not start, does not start correctly, or presents beep codes, make sure to write down all information pertaining to the anomaly.

Right now my guess is that it will work. So if we encounter problems, post back and we'll go through the steps of debugging the problem. Just remember, when you intend to touch computer hardware (including memory), GROUND YOURSELF! Static electricity is the number 2 enemy of all computer hardware.

Let me know if you require any additional information before buying some new memory. I'll be glad to help.
Important that you have the right modules for your laptop. Also there is a maximum amount of memory depending on your motherboard. For example a toshiba only allows 1gb in each slot of 2 others more or less. Installing them is the simple part they will just snap right in. If they don't snap in on both sides the module is not installed correctly but if both sides snap in your o.k. also after snapping in with battry out put battery in and check your computer to see how much memory is installed.
