Kingston HyperX ram - what size is it?

December 27, 2010 at 15:16:25
Specs: Windows XP
I just purchased 2 sticks of HP800d2n5/2g ram that was supposed to add to 4 Gigs. When installed it reads 2 (1.93) gigs in my system information display. Does anyone know if this Pt# is for a 2 or 4 gig kit.

Thanks

Looks like it is supposed to be 2gb per stick so the question arises : "Is it compatible with the motherboard ?"

Since you haven't given any details of the system we cannot tell.

grasshopper is correct. You have a 2GB kit (2 x 1GB).

This is the nearest Crucial comes to your board and it says maximum 1gb per slot.
You bought a 4gb kit but your board cannot use it

Richard, the RAM is a 2GB kit consisting of 2 - 1GB sticks. Taht is indicated by the /2G at the end of the product number. Look at the ebay link below.

OtheHill, In the ebay link you have attached look at what is written in the description below: The manufacturers part number and description differs from the ram in the photograph. I suspect whoever listed that ram has attached the wrong photographs as even the label on the ram says it is a 2g stick.
here's another ebay link to a 4 gb kit. 2x2gb with exact same part # http://cgi.ebay.ph/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...

I have tried to locate the part number in Kingston website but it isn't listed so I suspect the part number on these sticks is an OEM number used by HP rather than a Kingston retail part number

The OP got what he paid for. It just isn't compatible.

The ram is 2 gigs x2 for a total of 4 Gigs
I tried it in another computer and it read 4 gigs so incompatible Motherboard was the issue.

Thanks for your help and insight Richard59
