    If you have not got any Documentation with your PC then you will have to operate........lol

    Power Off (Take Power Cord from PSU)

    Open your box and and get yourself a bright light and your should see some markings on the board to identify it,you may have to Google some Identifyers to Pin it right down

    The easier Way might be to Download an app.like the Belarc Adviser (Free) or AIDA which will identify the MB.(Hopefully)

    Hi,
    Ok after hours of searching and looking at the motherboard I was unable to fiind any identifying numbers. I did go to the hp website though and the chipset is Intel 810e if that helps any.

    256MB PC100 DIMM 168PIN-CL2 NON ECC 32X64 100MHZ

    Would this one work ? I understand it has to be a 64 bit but what does the 32 x 64 mean ???:confused:

    those are the number of the chips times by the capacity of each chip. For example, 32x64 means that the module has 32 64-megabit chips. Multiply 32 by 64 and you get 2048 megabits. 8 bits is one byte. so 1048/8 is 256mb.

    it praticaly just means that you have 32 chips. and each chip you have has 64bits of space.
