hey man, try this website: Memory-Up.com

thats where i finally ended up finding my 2x 4gb ram sticks. my computer recognized all 8gb fine because its windows 7 64bit. definitely get a new motherboard though and run windows 7 64bit. then snag up all the memory you can from this website. they've pretty much got everything you can find.

Please help me to understand the conclusions of this thread.
I have the same wish: upgrade my ram replacing the existing 2x2Gb modules by 2x4Gb modules in my M2N68-LA (Narra6) motherboard:
Motherboard Specifications, M2N68-LA (Narra6) HP Pavilion Slimline s5300it Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

socrgy9 says: "i have already filled with a 4gb stick of ram in each. 8gig of ram and the machine runs like a charm" (that is, he already has done the work?)

HP (the motherboard is inside an HP pc) says it is not possible

TVeblen says "Your maximum limit on the amount of memory a motherboard can handle is "hard wired". That means the chipset and BIOS can't use anything over 4 gigs regardless of how you load the slots." (that is, it is not possible to upgrade to 8Gb ram)

afterthat, socrgy9 says: " i finally ended up finding my 2x 4gb ram sticks. my computer recognized all 8gb fine because its windows 7 64bit. definitely get a new motherboard though and run windows 7 64bit." (Sorry for my bad english, I do not understand: finally, he has already made the work or not? definitely get a new motherboard thoug, what does it mean?)

In case, could I buy "CORSAIR - Memory Dimm XMS3 8Gb (2x4Gb) ddr3 1333 MHz Unbuffered CL 9-9-9-24"?

IS or IS NOT possible to upgrade to 8Gb ram using 2x4Gb modules?

A ultimate help will e greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Save yourself time and aggravation. Buy a NEW PC.
The one you are trying to upgrade is OLD with a slower CPU then you can get today.

Every day I could buy a new pc which is faster than yesterday and slower than tomorrow. If I need only more ram, why should I buy a new pc?

OK.
I've been through this a few times. In the end more RAM, new video card (If I could find one that was better then the one I had and worked in my system), did not do what I expected and I eventually, within weeks of doing the upgrades, built a new system.

I was just trying to save you the expense of buying new stuff for a OLD computer.

Hello Deebigi. Welcome to the Forum.

Although the OP and hiitsme0819 never made it clear, it is my impression, from what they did say to each other, that they both went ahead and bought new motherboards and then added additional RAM.

I can see where you may have gotten the impression that either was able to add RAM to their old machines, but I do not think that is what happened. Perhaps they will check back and confirm that for us.

new mobo

it is nto possible to upgrade ur ram beyond the manufacturer specs howevever check tigerdirect.com or newegg.com with a little effort its easy to find a new mobo that is completely compatible with the rest of your pc i started off going to just buy a new mobo but if you start looking around and have the ability to put everything together you can build your own pc for like half of what you would pay for an equal one in a store
