This past weekend my daughter was playing her favorite game of Pocket God on my iPhone. Somehow during that time the inevitable happened (when you mix kids with expensive gadgets)… system crash. The result of this was rather odd as the small home screen icons were enlarged to nearly 2″ x 2″ in size. Scrolling was minimal at best and even a reset did nothing but make unlocking the iPhone impossible. The only option left open was to do a complete restore.

To my knowledge from what I have seen and read, outside of some tech sites, people who know better, and people like me who took a chance and did it anyway, you will not find this information anywhere. Why is beyond me since it’s quite simple. HP’s own website along with memory upgrade sites like Crucial (not picking on them mind you) state that the HP Pavilion dv9260′s memory (RAM) is maxed out. I believe this is because they measure upgrade ability by the amount of memory card slots a given PC or laptop have versus how many are in use (occupied) out of the box. It seems that they don’t always take into account that a 1GB chip can be replaced with a 2GB chip. So unless they change how they measure upgrade ability these sites are useless except for picking out the type of RAM you want and can use. Continue Reading
