Replace The Ram Memory In An Hp Pavilion Dv5000 Series Laptop

Replace the RAM Memory in an HP Pavilion DV5000 Series Laptop

The HP Pavilion DV5000 laptop computer uses RAM to handle processes-the more RAM installed in the computer, the faster and more capable it is of running multiple processes. RAM isn't expensive and can be upgraded for under $100 in most cases. It's also simple to install and can be removed and replaced in under 10 minutes with minimal tools.


1. Shut down the computer completely and disconnect the a/c power adapter. Flip over the laptop to reveal the bottom side of the computer. Locate the small panel held in place by a Phillips-head screw. Remove the screw using the Phillips-head screwdriver and pull it off of the computer.

2. Ground yourself by placing one hand on the computer and placing the other hand on a nearby metal object, such as a metal desk piece or component. Then pull apart the side catches on the sides of the RAM chips until the chip pops up at a 45-degree angle from the case. Pull the RAM out using your hands and set it to the side.

3. Push the replacement RAM into the slot on the computer, in the same manner and angle as the original chip. Then push it down into the computer until the side catches secure the chip. Reinstall the cover using the Phillips-head screwdriver and start up the computer to make sure that the RAM is installed correctly. If you do not get any error messages, then the RAM is installed correctly.
