my motherboard shows on everest that it can handle a maximum of 8G of ram while it hase only 4 sockets & i dont know if they support 2G per slot to reach 8G.
my specs :
hp dc 7700p convertible minitower
Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Processor (2.13-GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 1066-MHz FSB)
1.0 GB, 667 MHz, CL=5, PC2-5300 DDR2-SDRAM DIMM memory
chipset : Intel Q965 Express chipset.
thank you so much.

it supports 2GB per slot. they make 8GB sticks but they are for servers, ecc, and expensive as all hell.

Spec sheet shows 4gb max only. Should be 1gb sticks x 4. I would imagine if you can see your board just look up the model number for exact details.

Not sure where this info came from :o  According to HP's site its 4gb max unless I'm not seeing the correct board.

It depends on what model you have so I listed both models below.

ref -> http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12543_na/...

Ultra-slim Desktop (1GB/DIMM Slot maximum)
Maximum Memory* Supports up to 3 GB of DDR2 SYNCH DRAM. Slot 1 is black and must always be populated.

Small Form Factor and Convertible Minitower (2GB/DIMM Slot maximum)
Maximum Memory* Supports up to 8 GB of DDR2 SYNCH DRAM. Slot 1 is black and must always be populated.

the information i supplied was from the fact he stated his MB supported 8GB of ram with 4 slots. by that each slot would take 2 GB

it seems it support 2G per slot but i have to switch to 64 bits to reconize all 8G

Correct, 32-bit addressing limit is 4GB with 3.0GB~3.5GB 'usable' to the OS and Applications.

3.25 with 32. but why would anyone use 32 anymore? everything is 64 now days

can someone tell me the compatible ram for my pc ,i have already 1.0 GB, 667 MHz, CL=5, PC2-5300 DDR2-SDRAM DIMM memory .can i mix 667 with 800 mhz
September 20, 2011 12:10:35 AM

you can but the system will down clock all ram to the slowest stick. you want to buy the same speed and latency ram. or buy 2 new sticks of dual channel ram.

I would stick with PC2-5300 and at Crucial here's the memory they have listed -> http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=dc770... if keep the current RAM then you need to review the link I provided earlier -> http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12543_na/... and scroll down to 'Memory Configurations.'

Good Luck! :) 

but in memory configurations they put possibilities till 4g.what about 8G possibility mentioned in the table above 2G 2G 2G 2G

sorry my friends if i bother you too much
September 20, 2011 1:43:52 AM

from HP's tech papers on this computer you can use 8GB of dual channel ram at up to 1.8v and 800mhz. assuming you gave us the correct model of your computer then THIS IS what you can put in your comp.
