Hi

I have an HP 8765C and was thinking of upgrading the RAM. It came with 128MB and looks like it is expandable to 512MB. Inside there are 2 RAM slots. I assume I can replace the 128MB SDRAM chip with two 256 SDRAM chips. My question is this: Is 512MB the max I can install? Can I put two 512MB chips in and will it work or is the 512MB total truely the max. I heard you may be able to change the BIOS to accept more. Is this true or am I better off just going to 512MB? With RAM so cheap, I thought I'd ask.

Thanks in advance.

Hi rck1,
Try the HP web site. It has all the tech info you need about your PC. I have a 6553 and it can use 512 max. They will have everything about your PC from BIOS to Sound.

Have a look at www.crucial.com.

Even if you don't buy from them, they have great info about pc's, motherboards and their memory expansion capabilities.
