View Full Version : memeory upgrade HP Pavillion a504a

03-05-2010, 11:02 PM
A friend of mine has one of thse running Vista on 512MB. A crawling stumble might better describe it. CPU-Z says the MB is a LEONITE 5 Rev A2 and the memory is DDR2 PC2-4300 266Mhz.

I cannot find any specs for this board apart from the chipset being an Intel i945/PL/G/Gz and it is made by Asus.

My questions is, what is the maximum speed, and amount of Ram this board will take?

Any specific(HP) speedups/tweaks would also be appreciated.

Thanks Ned,
Just the thing I was after. My search skills must be declining with old age!! All looks good, for a 4GB injection. Do you know anything about "HP/Compac approved memory" or is it just the specs already noted ?

Open the case and see what the model of the mobo is.

Hi Speedy,
Logical, but the computer is really only available on Sundays , so I'm trying to do a bit of groundwork beforehand. It seems to correlate pretty much with nedkellys link, although there may be different models of the same board it must be close as it suppots the Pentium D CPU, the same as the computer.
