RAM limitations, netbook, WIN 7 starter Tags: RAM Netbooks Windows 7 Last response: September 28, 2010 5:22 PM in Windows 7 Share Anonymous a b $ Windows 7 September 27, 2010 11:22:42 PM Hello, I installed a 2gb PC3-8500 DDR3 204 pin stick in my HP Mini 210-1170, and the result was a black screen, though it seemed the computer was running. I noticed the prior stick was PC3-10600. The product specs state a 1gb RAM limit, but WIN 7 homesite clearly states 2 GB max. Can anyone tell me why? Do I need the 10600, or is there some sort of "governor" set by HP?

Windows 7 does not control how the hardware works. If your hardware is limited to 1 gig, Windows can't change that. If you can, return the RAM. m 0 l cassandraf_winteam a b $ Windows 7 September 28, 2010 5:22:37 PM I agree with hang-the-9. If your netbook states a 1gb of RAM limit, then you will not be able to go beyond that. Windows 7 Starter will run just fine with 1gb of RAM -http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/sy... Cheers, Cassandra Microsoft Windows Outreach m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
