    inserted a 256mb pc 133 sdram 133mhz into a pavillion 8652c it now no
    longer works even when i switch back to the old memory card.
    A friend of mine has the computer and I recomended the memory but he
    installed it. He said the computer would not work so he reinstalled the
    old ram but now when he boots it will only partially boot., The Windows
    XP boot screen will show with the progress bar for a while and then it
    reboots again over and over.
    I hear that the pavillion 8652c can only use 128 mb Dimms that run on
    100mhz would this improper memory the 256mb Dimm that runs on 133mhz
    hurt the computer.

    Please help.

    You need to post in a newsgroup or forum where your HP computer is
    supported, Niles. This newsgroup supports Micreosoft's Broadband Networking

    I dont think installing the wrong memory can "hurt" the computer. Are you
    certain that the old memory was re-inserted correctly? I assume you powered
    the computer OFF while doing the memory modifications? I would think most
    likely the old working memory is just not seated firmly into the slot (if
    there are clips, make sure they are clipping correctly. Make sure the
    notch(s) in the memory card line up with the little plastic guides in the
    slot etc etc.

    PC100 SDRAM can usually be found in most computer shops that are NOT big
    chains (neighbourhood PC parts stores) - but sometimes they are even more
    expensive than current memory (supply/demand yada yada)

    Best of luck

    PS: all else fails, enlist a knowledgable friend or friend of a friend etc.
