Default Re: what ram and HD combo?

If you can, go DDR2 RAM...it's faster than DDR and quite cheap. Currently, I have Kingston HyperX DDR2 High Performance RAM (2 x 2GB= 4GB total). I've always been a huge fan of Kingston or Corsair.

That would be a good idea if his motherboard could support it.

The motherboard only supports 200 pin DDR RAM.

It'll be in the instruction manual I linked you to in this thread.

below: email between me and hp im happy with there customer service i got my replys within 10-30 min and there site says replys within 1 hour

Hello,
Thank you for the reply.
let me inform you that the form factor of the notebook motherboard will not support DDR2 SO-DIMM memory as it is designed to support only DDR1 type memory.
I have checked the specifications of memory module in the URL provided by you, and would like to inform that it is compatible for your notebook.
The specifications of hard drive in the URL provided by you might not support, as the maximum capacity of the hard drive that your notebook can accomodate is 80GB. Hence, I suggest you to order the hard drive from the link we provided in the previous correspondence.
I hope this information helps you. Please reply if I can help you further. I would like to add that we value your precious time and would be here round the clock to serve you.
