upgrade notebook RAM HP
Currently I have a HP Pavillion Laptop-n5450 running XP-Pro
Memory (RAM) in MB:_____128MB______
Processor type:____Intel Pentium III_____
Processor speed (MHz):____693 MHz______
Hard Drive Capacity:____20G______
I went to crucial and scanned my system(said I have 512MB possible), which then suggested I buy a 144pin SDRAM PC133 256MB stick to upgrade my current laptop(HP Pavillion n5450). So then I went to NewEgg where I saw some nice Rosewill RAM and after reading two other reviews that said this particular memory worked in an n5430 and an n5470, I then proceeded to buy two(2) 256MB SDRAM PC133 144pin sticks. I placed both of them in my laptop, and the computer simply wouldnt even get to the BIOS. It just starts for about five seconds(no sound or display), and then reboots. Then I put the old RAM back in along with a new one, and after initializing, I got an error "0232: Extended RAM Failed at offset: 1B". Currently Im running the latest BIOS version possible(GC.M1.63) with XP Pro installed. Does anyone know if the RAM is defective or that my computer just wont accept it? My old RAM is a PC133 SDRAM 144pin 128MB stick.
