I've already done that for Donna and given her a link to Crucial for the correct RAM. I prefer Crucial for their qualiity and warranties and I don't think I've ever found decent RAM cheaper by much than they offer.
The perceived problem is that apparently her "HP" says 2400 as a model number on the front and the only HP 2n00 is a very old laptop that only takes up to 64MB of RAM!
Hers is a desktop and the codes on the back which she gave me from a wizard scan I think by the HP website ties in with another HP machine -- Compaq Presario 06 DC479A-ABA S3200NX
The codes in black matches what she reported to me. 2 x 512MB strips would cost about $36 in all.
I've given her the link to the support pages for that Compaq.
I see I need to read, lol. Good job Hugh. Hopefully donna can get her RAM from an etailor instead of Compaq. The OEM people still charge horrendous amount for easily obtained parts and accessories.
