Hi

I have an HP Pavilion DV6 (dv6-3119sa).
The upper RAM slot is faulty (one of the pins is corroded and fails to make contact).
The lower slot is fine.
I'd like this machine running with 8gb RAM - Will it operate with a single 8gb RAM installed in the lower slot, please?
As I understand, it needs PC-10600 1333Mhz Memory at 1.5V.

Thank you for any assistance
Chris

Thanks for your reply.

"Memory:
Slots: 2 (2 banks of 1)
Maximum Memory: 8GB
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
Standard Memory: 4GB removable.

Sorry - Whereabouts in that information does it say that it will not work with a single 8GB Ram?
Maybe I'm missing something . . .

Sadly, the pin is corroded beyond use - That slot is not repairable.
