Hi Nathan,
Yes, I need to upgrade an HP Pavillion dv7 from 8 GB to either 16 or 32
Nathan R.
ok
Its DDR3 but I don't understand the difference with 1.35 or 1.5v
Nathan R.
is this a laptop or desktop model?
laptop
Nathan R.
ok - the laptop is limited to 16gb max
and you'll need the lower voltage 1.35v RAM
Okay...what's the best buy
Nathan R.
one moment while i look
what's the difference with DDR3 and DDR3L
Nathan R.
DDR3L is low voltage laptop memory with fewer pins
how old is your DV7?
4 yrs
Nathan R.
ok - you may not be able to go beyond 8gb
double checking specs now
According to Crucial website scan of my laptop, maximum memory is 16384MB
Nathan R.
ok - good. and i apologize for this taking a while
HP just is not very good at documenting their stuff
No problem, I appreciate the help.
Newegg needs to add a Live Chat button somewhere, I was looking for it when you popped up
Nathan R.

we do need to make it easier to find
and this is a good option right here for your laptop:
