i want to upgrade my hp pavilion dv4000 having p/n EW874EA#ABV

Your options are extremely limited. Here is a list of the range of specs. 
The big issue is the single core Pentium M (aka Centrino) processor, the max of 2 gigs of memory and the Intel GMA900 video which is not capable of Aero desktop effects. 
This laptop was not capable of handling Windows Vista, let alone 7, 8, 8.1 and soon, Windows 10. There is just no amount of money you can put into it to make it useable in today's computing environment. 
Sorry to have to carry bad news. Any new laptop, even one at the very bottom price point, will blow the dv4000 away.

  • Another video card/PSU upgrade for HP Pavilion p6565uk

    Hi there
    I want to upgrade from the basic Nvidia card and 300W psu provided with my HP Pavilion P6565UK, purchased a few months ago.
    I am looking at either a Corsair CX 600W or an Antec HCG-750W, I am not sure if there is a difference, and an EVGA Nvidia superclocked GTX550Ti card.
    I am however really not technically minded and I am not sure how to go about making sure that these products will be suitable before I purchase them.
    I have 3D gaming in mind (I have a 120hz screen) as I am a Warcraft player.
    Hope someone can help point me in the right direction or hold my hand as I am hopeless with stuff like this!

    You might have issues getting the Antec HCG-750W to fit.  Do some measuring and see it will fit, particularly the distance between the power supply and the optical drive.  I have see where PSUs of 750 and greater have failed to work in some HP PC's.
    Go with the Corsair CX600 or the CX500.
    I noticed that EVGA has lowered the PSU requirements for some video cards.  Look at this information for the 550 TI superclocked.

  • Upgrade for HP Pavilion HDX9300 CTO Notebook PC

    Good morning people!
    I have one HP Pavilion HDX9300 CTO Notebook PC and have some questions:
    I am wanting to upgrade my HD drive for a SSD model and increase my DDR memory.
    I know my memory operates at a frequency of 667 MHz but need to know if my notebook includes an upgrade to 8GB and what would be the ideal brand of memory card to do this.
    I also need models of HD 480GB SSD compatible with my notebook.
    Thank you all and sorry for english, I'm brazilian.

    I checked out you service manual and it says the maximum amount of memory it can take is 4 GB or two 2 GB sticks.
     I also went to Crucial and there memory advisor does confirm this.
     Crucial also gives you a bunch of different options for an SSD as well. It says that the 512 GB SSD will work, but it is expensive. Stick with a quality brand name like Crucial or Kingston. Avoid buying from e-bay.
     When it comes to memory though just because the manual says the max is 4 GB does not mean that it can take more.
     You can try installing two 4 GB sticks and it may work, it won't hurt the laptop to try, but there is no guarantee that it will work.
     Keep in mind too that if you're running a 32 bit operating system it won't recognise a little more then 3 GB of memory anyway.

  • Want to Upgrade RAM, Please Help!!!

    HI, I have HP Pavilion DV3-2332TX laptop, recently i upgraded it with Windows 10 Home,  having 3(2+1)GB RAM 1066MHz, i want to upgrade my RAM, by additional 4GB in pleace of !GB RAM, please tell that do i have to install the new 4GB RAM of same 1066Mhz or can i upgrade it with 1333MHz or more. will it then work like 6(4+2)GB.

    Hi, You are running 32 bit Windows 10, adding more RAM to 6GB is wasting money because 32bit Operating system can only access to 4GB of RAM (max). You can swap 1GB with 2GB, that's all, to make 4GB and your system can use around 3.7GB. You have to use same specs with existing RAM, higher speed won't work properly or won't work at all. Regards.

  • Upgrading Processor in Pavilion P6330F

    I'm confused, I want to upgrade the processor in my Pavilion P6330F desktop. Currently it has an Intel I3-530 socket 1156 or 'H' in it, which is a Core 2 chip.

  • What All Do I Need If I Want To Upgrade My Macbook Hard Drive?

    hey guys.
    i've tried reading up a little but i was hoping someone (or a few people) could give me some straight up answers.
    if i want to upgrade my macbook hard drive what all do i need? just the hard drive? or are there other pieces?
    also.. whats a good 250GB one? i found this one on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-2-5-Western-Digital-250GB-SATA-Harddrive_W0QQitemZ220271 134397QQihZ012QQcategoryZ158853QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
    is that one any good? i just know the name (Western Digital) and have heard good things about them...
    any comments are welcome.

    I got a 320GB sata 2.5" hard drive and installed it myself, its easy. I also got a caddy so I can use my old 120GB drive as a back up. Make sure u have everything backed up! Seagate and western digital drives are most popular. I asked similar q and got this answer"
    Extended Hard Drive Preparation
    1. Boot from your OS X Installer Disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Installer menu (Utilities menu for Tiger or Leopard.)
    2. After DU loads select your hard drive (this is the entry with the mfgr.'s ID and size) from the left side list. Note the SMART status of the drive in DU's status area. If it does not say "Verified" then the drive is failing or has failed and will need replacing. SMART info will not be reported on external drives. Otherwise, click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.
    3. Click on the Options button, set the partition scheme to GUID (only required for Intel Macs) then click on the OK button. Set the number of partitions from the dropdown menu (use 1 partition unless you wish to make more.) Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Partition button and wait until the volume(s) mount on the Desktop.
    4. Select the volume you just created (this is the sub-entry under the drive entry) from the left side list. Click on the Erase tab in the DU main window.
    5. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Options button, check the button for Zero Data and click on OK to return to the Erase window.
    6. Click on the Erase button. The format process can take up to several hours depending upon the drive size.
    Steps 4-6 are optional but should be used on a drive that has never been formatted before, if the format type is not Mac OS Extended, if the partition scheme has been changed, or if a different operating system (not OS X) has been installed on the drive.
    If your backup is bootable, then boot from the external drive and use SuperDuper to clone it back to the newly installed drive.
    Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MacBook Pro C2D 2.33 Ghz; MacBook Pro 2.16 Ghz Mac OS X (10.5.4) Intel iMac C2D 17 "; MacBook 2.0 Ghz.
    Now, to install the hard drive, follow http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Mac/MacBook-Core-Duo/Hard-Drive-Replacement/86/5/

  • Getting a larger hard drive...and want to upgrade to Tiger...help!

    Hello everyone!
    I have a dualie MDD with the stock 60 gig hard drive that I want to upgrade. I'd like a 200 or 250 gig hard drive.
    Once I have the new hard drive installed, I'd like to upgrade to Tiger. But I'm lost as to how this process works. I know I'd need to clone my current OS, but then how do I clone it to the new drive once it's installed?
    Would I:
    1) Back my system up onto CD/DVDs/external drive/whatever
    2) Create clone of system using CCC or Disk Utilities
    3) Install new drive??
    4) ???
    5) Upgrade to Tiger??
    I'm not sure if two drives running so close to each other inside the hard drive cage is a wise move considering how hot the inside of an MDD gets, so I may remove the 60 once everything is up and running.
    So how do I go about this the right way? Detailed instructions would be very appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi, Pat!
    First of all, get the new drive and install it. (Insure you buy an ATA drive and not a SATA drive.) If you need any assistance with installing, configuring, or initializing the drive, please post back.
    In the interim, check for updates to your third-party apps to make sure that they will all be up-to-date and Tiger-compatible. Download a free copy of Superduper! or CarbonCopyCloner to later clone your startup drive. You can also use Disk Utility's Restore option for cloning, if you'd rather do so.
    Next, you have a decision to make about the Tiger install. You can either upgrade it from Panther on your current drive, or do a fresh install of Tiger and use the Setup Assistant to incorporate your data from the Panther volume. I prefer and would recommend the latter as a much "cleaner" way of upgrading, leaving less "baggage" from the older OS. I would install Tiger directly to the new drive, which precludes the immediate need to clone anything while still leaving the original startup drive and system intact. If you'd rather do the upgrade install, then you should clone the Panther volume to the new drive, check the clone to insure it's okay, and install Tiger over Panther onto one drive or the other.
    After installing Tiger, doing the software updates, moving your user files, apps etc. to the Tiger volume, you can run and test it for a week or so to insure all is well and that you have everything you need from the Panther drive. Once you're satisfied, you can then either retain the Panther volume as-is, using it as an alternate startup drive, or (preferably) you can instead erase it, zero it, and clone a copy of your Tiger volume to it as a backup and alternate startup drive.
    Feel free to post back with any questions or concerns and one or more of the members will gladly address them.

  • Video Card upgrade for HP Pavilion HPE h8-1256s Desktop

    I wanted to upgrade my current graphics card which was an NVIDIA GeForce GT 620, the mother board is a H-Joshua-H61-uATX. I recently bought an EVGA GeForce GTX 750Ti Superclock. I unistalled the old drivers took out the old card, added the new one and when I started up my PC i would recive 3 beeps and a black screen. I did some research and found out that it may be due to the BIOS. There is no BIOS upgrade I can find and my BIOS vers is AMI 7.11, 4/28/2012. I would appreciate a list or a recommendation of compatable Video cards so I do not have to keep buying and installing these devices or if there is a new BIOS update.
    Graphics card (Bought on Amazon): EVGA GeForce GTX 750Ti Superclock w/G-SYNC Support 2GB GDDR5 128bit, Dual-Link DVI-I, HDMI, DP 1.2 Graphics Card (02G-P4-3753-KR)

    The EVGA 750 will not work with a version 7 BIOS.  Look under Windows 8 for BIOS version 8.19.

    If you are running Windows 7 then I haven't seen a post on this forum indicating if the EVGA 750 will work when the BIOS version 8 is set to legacy mode.

  • Before my PC had iTunes, I loaded Aps from store onto my daughter's PC with iPad connected. I indicated my email address and Apple password. Now I want to upgrade to next iPad but Aps in my iPad are not on my PC iTunes. Do I have to buy again to keep them

    I'm a new user of an iPad. Before my PC had iTunes (it does now), I loaded Aps from from the iStore using my daughter's PC with my iPad cable-connected. I indicated my email address and Apple password--not hers and paid for these Aps--receipts arrived via my email. Now I want to upgrade to 5.1 but the Aps now loaded on my iPad do not show up  on my PC iTunes library. When I click 'Upgrade' I get a warning message that says all Aps currently on the iPad will be obliterated in the process which of course I don't want to have happen because they're not showing up on my PC which presumably means my PC is not aware of what's on my iPad. Do I have to buy these same Aps again to keep them if I'm going to upgrade to 5.1, and how do I get my iTunes on my PC to back up the Aps currently loaded onto my iPad?

    You should be able to copy the apps (and any other iTunes purchases) over to your computer's iTunes via File > Transfer Purchases. And as long as apps remain available in the store, and you use the same iTunes account as you originally used to purchase them, you should be able to re-download them in the future : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2519
    If you are already on iOS 5+ on your iPad then you should be able to update the iPad directly on the iPad via Settings > General > Software Update .
