which memory to choose
 
I have a hp dv6000 laptop which came with 1Gig 512MB 2Rx16 PC2-5300S-555-12-A3 I want to upgrade to 2GB. Which kind of ram can I replace it with? 5400? or does it have to be 5300.

please help.

You need to first determine what speed memory that laptop will support. If the maximum is PC2-5300 then that's what you'll need to get.

A good start would be to go to Crucial Memory and use their System Scanner that will scan your system and tell you exactly what memory is compatible with your laptop.

The fastest memory the dv6000t/z will support is DDR2 667. I'd recommend going to www.kingston.com selecting your make(HP/Compaq), then model(Pavilion Notebook), then your laptops model number(dv6000t or z which ever it is), and buying 2 1GB modules.

PC2 5300/5400 doesn't refer to the size of the memory it refers to the speed.

Yup, they should work.

Newegg has a nice set of CORSAIR ValueSelect 2GB (2 x 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) for $82.99.
