I have an older Laptop. I like it but its azz slow. I found out you really shouldn't run XP with only 256Mg ram. My HP Laptop only has 1 Ram slot. (unless I'm missing something. Everyone seems surprised it only has 1) I want to upgrade. I've been given Ram from other HP & Compaq laptops but none fit. How can I tell exactly what type of ram will fit my HP. I did a system check & it said I have:
256Mb Ram- P133 SDRAM
But I don't know if that is all I need to know in order to buy my Ram online. I did a search & found all kinds of different codes for RAM like:
PC 2700S 256MB DDR 333Mhz HP Laptop Memory
1GB DDR2 PC2 4200 533 SODIMM Laptop MEMORY
HP 256MB PC2700 DDR333 CL2.5 SODIMM Laptop Memory
144 pin 512MB PC 2700 DDR- How do I know what "# of PINS I need"?
It seems to me my RAM has a single notch along the edge with the gold pins more toward the middle than most RAM cards have. Thats why I'm so tentative about buying RAM.
Any help would be great!
