    Just go to the HP web site and enter your model # . Then look carefully for the "Specs" for your paticular pc. If it's an older pc you may have to dig a little deeper.

Click on this link to get to the HP manuals you need

Pg 114 tells you that the computer can use 184 pin DDR DIMM cards. You can install 1GB modules into the computer.

Unfortunately your model can only support a maximum of 1GB memory.

It is not compatible with DDR-400 memory either

You are much better off upgrading to a new computer at this point.

If the 1GB sticks fit and you are able to insert them it will not do any harm to your PC. However, it will only use the max amount stated in the manual. This is hardwired into the motherboard so there is no get around.
