If there was any documentation with your computer, read it. If not, go to hp.com and search for your computer there.

The easiest way is to use Everest to determine what you already have installed and then use the wizard at Crucial.com

He;'s not looking to purchase RAM. He just wants to find out what type he has.

just go to crucial, look up your model of your computer and the web site will have complete information on the memory of your exact model.

this includes how many slots, maximum memory supported, and the exact type.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
