Having problems with your HP Pavilion A520n (DW233A#ABA) PC Desktop ?

How much total memory will a HP a520n desktop computer hold. One source said max 1 gig yet another source said max 2 gig, which is correct.


Answers :

Go to crucial.com and have them analyze your computer. They will tell you you can use 2gb, no matter what HP says, and it does work. I just went through the same thing. Saved me from buying a new computer because 1gb wasn't cutting it and I originally thought that was the max for a a520n. Not true. I do suggest going to HP and getting the Bios update from 2005 if you haven't already done that. My a250n runs great with 2gb ram, replacement 500 watt power supply, GeForce 6600gt GPU, and Audigy SE sound card. With optimized paging file and routine disk cleanup this thing still runs well enough to have a few years left in the old girl untill every new program requires dual or quad core 64bit technology and Windows 7 or above.
I suggest you visit the H. P. web site. Enter your model number and you will receive a detailed information regarding your RAM etc.
