Add 1GB ram modules in slots 3 and 4 for a total of 2.5 GB RAM. $98.00 plus tax not bad.

Lists memory compatible with your machine.
Memory Type: DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
Slots: 4icon_note.gif Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

I have also found that the memory occasionally is not recognized. To fix remove the ram and clean electrical contacts with a clean pencil eraser. (Rub the contacts to clean.) Then replace memory. (My machine failed to boot, cleaning the contacts fixed the problem.

Memory upgrade


Well...digging through HP's web page is always fun...;-)

but it looks like you've got the wrong memory. You should only use PC2100 DDR-266 MHz or higher RAM, according to HP.
(You can find the manual here.)
Sometimes the so-called "Memory Finder" on vendor's pages give you the wrong information. If that is the case (and it's their fault), talk to them and try to exchange it to the correct modules.

Memory upgrade


We have the memory you need. Memory-Up is committed to provide the best memory and excellent services for all of our customers. We know that sometimes it is a bit confusing to buy the correct type, speed, and capacity of memory for your system. Therefore we hope that these tips below would help you for buying the new memory.
Memory Upgrade Tips

What is Compatibility and Memory Density Issue?

Memory module can be composed using different type of memory chips and therefore created different type of density for the module. For instance, a 512MB PC2700 DDR SODIMM memory can be composed using eight 32x16(High Density 512Mb technology) memory chips or sixteen 32x8(Low Density 256Mb technology) memory chips. As the laptops are equipped with different memory chipsets, some older laptop (chipset) would have compatibility issue working with the modules that is built with the newer 512Mb technology. Using the Not-Compatible memory will result the laptop to either not boot or only recognizing half of the memory modules. Thus that is not the correct memory for your system. Our Memory Finder and Memory Scanner will help to eliminate those problems and find the correct memory for you. We guaranteed the memory to work or your money back. 

How much memory do I need?

Here are some general descriptions for different type of users and the amount of memory they would need for their systems.

Normal User: The system is mainly used for checking e-mails, processing word/excel file, and web surfing. Suggestion: 512MB to 1GB of system memory. 

Power User: The system is mainly used for playing computer games, editing photos/videos, running database queries, or multi-tasking environment. (Surfing web/Processing Word/Excel File/Listening to Music). Suggestion: 1GB to 2GB of system memory.

Super User: The system is mainly used for running large number of database queries, professional editing of photos/videos, heavy multi-tasking environment. Usually a server or a workstation would be considered as Super User due to the multiple accesses from users. Suggestion: 2GB and above of system memory.

How much memory and memory slot do I have with my system? 

You can download our Memory-Scanner to find out the the amount of memory that you have and the memory slots that are available for upgrade. 

How many memory module should I buy?

It is recommended to purchase one module with bigger capacity than two modules with smaller capacity. For instance, if you can buy either one 1GB memory module or two 512MB memory modules for your system, it is recommended to get one 1GB and leave the other memory slot empty for future upgrade if necessary. 

Note: For systems that supports dual channel memory mode, although memory modules need to be installed in pairs to enable Dual Channel Memory Mode, we still recommended users to purchase one bigger module than two smaller modules since Dual Channel Memory Mode has only a minimal improvement in the actual system performance.

What if I want to mix different memory together?

Different sizes/speeds of memory can be used together as long as their specification are qualified by the systems. For instance, a laptop can use one 256MB and one 1GB of memory for the total of 1.25GB system memory. Mixing two different speeds of memory modules would result the system to run at the speed of the slower memory between the two modules. We recommend users to use our Memory Finder or Memory Scanner to find the correct memory for your system.

i thnk that will helpfull for u

RAM NOT DETECTING


I had the same issue on this board where it came with a Samsung 512 MB 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 DIMM. I put in a 1 GB Kingston with the same specs (533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2) and it would not recongize the Samsung anymore with the system reading as 1 GB of RAM instead of 1.5 GB. Tried every configuration and would only see the Kingston. It would only see the Samsung if I pulled out the Kingston regarless of the slots I use. So, I just bought the exact same make/model of Kingston and it recognized that fine and the system now has 2 GB of memory (max this board allows). And, I had already installed the latest BIOS for this board from Intel before doing all this so wasn't an old BIOS. I'm figuring the board didn't like something about the Samsung memory (speed, module configuration, etc.) that made it not play nice with the Kingston. If interested I bought the DM8400A/1G Kingston modules. And, this board appears not to support dual channel memory. Only has channel A, slots 0 and 1, and I read need two channels to support dual channel (seems obvious). Boards that supports dual channel memory normally have 4 memory slots, two for channel A and two for channel B, then put in matching modules in slot 0 for channel A and B and have dual channel memory access. And if want more ram, then matching modules in slot 1 for channel A and B.
