What was the result of the google search for a 2x4GB kit of the part number on the installed ram?
First, thanks for all the help getting to this point. I now know which used computer I want and that I must change out rather then add memory.
The problem now is finding memory that I can afford. The machine has 8 GB in it but I know that a couple of the programs I run require 16 GB minimum (tried them with less and all but stopped the machine). I went to the crucial site that was recommended to me ... it gave me the recommended memory. It was $160 for 16 GB. This puts the computer out of my budget.
So I am trying to find used memory on ebay or ????
I found two listing that may work. Can someone take a look and tell me if this is what I need: I will try to make it easy and put all the links (computer manual, crucial site and two listings).
I truly appreciate all the help!
The computer is a HP i7 4790
Here is a link to the online manual ... memory is on page 11 or 63
Here is the Crucial site (might what to double check me on this)
Here is one lot of memory I found on ebay
Here is a second lot I found on ebay
Or if anyone can tell me where I can find 16 gb of ram for this machine at a good price that would be great also!
Again, I truly appreciate any and all help!!!!!!!
