    ok i have a Hp Vectra 6/400. i have no idea which series it is though. i dont know where to look to find out either???? lol
    Its not the tower style case.....the flat one. i just bought the thing on ebay and its got 64 mb of ram in it now. i want to go to at least 256mb but more than likely 512. im wondering how many pins do the memory chips have, will pc 100 or 133 work, and does it have to be installed in pairs?

    thanks for any help you guys can give me! :)

    No manulas or anything?? I would have insisted on it. You would be better off going to HP's web site and looking up the model and documentation.

    i believe its a series 8. i saw the same computer (looked the same) on their auction and it said series 8. i know it has 3 dim slots in it also. according to that site it will hold 768mb!! woo ha
    so if this page is correct.....any single dimm chip will work. corrcect?

    also.......would it be 168 pin?
