Your Pavilion a815n System Specs

System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

Memory:

DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
Slots: 4

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

          New programs tend to use more memory. Ordering from Crucial, who scanned my computer and told me what I needed, was the simple answer.

            Comments about Crucial 512MB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Pavilion a815n System:

            The two memory chips work just fine. Now the overall total is about 1.5 GB of RAM and functions appear to operate more crisply on my HP a815n PC. I do a lot of multi-tasking and simulation and this usage is much better!
