Claus, try this link to help find memory for you computer. http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/sh...ory&catLevel=1
On that page, there is a button that says find memory. Use that to find the exact type you need.

whats your next one gonna be? i'd suggest the AMD 3800+ cpu from newegg if it was possible, but you have an intel cpu in your current one, so it wont work. if you do decide to stick with intels, upgrade your processor now (3.06ghz!!) and put that in your new computer later

i want a quad core when it comes out, if i bought a cpu now it would be core 2 extreme... but im like 90% sure it needs a mobo with the right socket type. what is retarded... my dad is letting me build a media center pc (oand possibly another to connect to it) to go in my basement and record shows then transmit it over the network so we can watch dvr stuff everywhere... and i get to make a halfway decent computer... thats not even gonna be multi tasking (besides intake and output of video)

The core 2 duo is very good for the price. I'm a firm supporter of AMD, but the c2d is just so good for what you pay. The extreme is a waste of money.

Windows is annoying when it comes to memory usage, Xp has so many useles backround programs that suck up your memory. This comp that I'm on now is pretty crappy. 1ghz p3 based celeron, 392(?)mb ram, nvidia ti4200+ 128 mb. Yet, despite that the desktop environment is at least twice as fast as my primary gaming comp(running xp). Which is muchhhhhh better than this thing.

And yeah, prettymuch every series of cpu's uses a specific socket type. Media center is pretty sweet, especially when used like that. We had one of dad's PC's hooked up to our TV for a while, it was pretty sweet. Especially considering that he had a ton of movies on it aswell.

What you should do is look around at your PC, assuming it came fro ma major company it will have a sticker on it wit ha product key. Get a friends install disc for XP, and use that to reformat your HD and then reinstall windows. Prettymuch thats the only way to go to speed up your comp. If you wantto save files etc. you could get a cheap portable HD if you have a lot of files, or you could just burn the stuff to cd's or a flashdrive or two.
