View Full Version : How do I upgrade my TC1100 RAM
11-09-2007, 05:10 AM
I have a TC1100 with only the factory installed 256MB RAM fitted. I would like to upgrade this but I am a little confused as to how to go about it. Does the maximum RAM depend on what has been installed by the factory? Please help if you can and give details on what I should be fitting and where.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes, The maximum RAM depends on what has been installed by the factory. As I know you can upgrade your TC1100 up to 1 and quarter GB adding the 1 GB RAM module. You can open the cover (unscrew 2 screws) near battery on the back of your device and put the additional RAM module to the empty slot.

If you are feeling brave you could also open up the case and swap out the factory installed RAM. If you search the forum you will find many detailed accounts (some with diagrams) of how to pull this off.
Personally, I didn't have the guts... My machine came with 512MB stock, so upgrading to 1.5GB seemed like enough.

Thank you for the response. I am afraid I don't know much about RAM and would be grateful if someone could explain exactly what I should be looking for. Will this fit <http://www.kikatek.com/product_info.php?products_id=18348>
If not could someone point me in the right direction or suggest alternative makes?
Also are both memory sticks the same size/configuration?

my tc1100 came with 512MB ram occupying the internal slot and i bought another 512MB dimm from comp-usa a ddr400 by centon(512MBLT3200) to fill the second (user accessible) slot to make it 1GB. I've continued to run xp-tablet for over a year w/o any noticeable problems relating to memory. earlier this year I've upgraded to vista ultimate and soon after bought from comp-usa 2x1GB dimms of same brand and spec centon(1GBLT3200). however the tablet wouldn't boot with 2GB installed. after some experimentation 1.5GB would boot. the internal slot with 512MB while the user accessible slot with 1GB. if i understand things correctly my tablet DQ871A supports DDR333 and the centon sodimms are compatible with DDR333 & DDR266.
Memory Specifications on hp.com
The Tablet PC supports two different memory ports:
Two DDR SODIMM memory slots support PC2700 (333MHz) and PC2100 (266MHz) memory modules in sizes of 256MB, 512MB, and 1024MB.
am i missing something? ideas, suggestions would greatly appreciated.
