    I have a HP Pavilion Entertainment PC with 2x 2Rx16 512mb ram chips running Vista. This is obviously not enough RAM, so I would like to buy new RAM chips, I'd like to get 2x 1GB ram chips, but I want to make sure I get ones that are compatible with my computer. Can anyone suggest which ones to get, possibly with links to them? Thanks.

    This website can help you find what ram is compatible with your PC. I guess you could either click "Scan my system" or do it manually.

    I would echo Crucial.com as well, and go ahead and do the System Scan.

    Post the results back here and we can help you figure out what's what.

    I didn't want to go through the whole, "It's not really my computer" thing, but it looks like I may need to, heh.

    I am trying to help a friend with their computer. My knowledge is more software based. I will get my friend to do the scan and email me the results. Once I get them, I'll post it here.

    Also knowing the exact make and model of the computer would be helpful.

    HP Pavilion Entertainment PC is the only information I could find on the machine. There's nothing else. I may try to get it back to do a little more work on it.

    Alright, well once the scan is available and I get the make and model, that will tell me what RAM is compatible, how much it can hold, etc.

    I talked to my friend, and I'll get the computer back for tonight. I'll post the scan results from crucial.com
