Just a simple question - Probably Dumb - But Just Making Sure Tags: Memory DDR2 Hewlett Packard Last response: September 20, 2007 10:16 PM in Memory Share mobone September 20, 2007 7:58:33 PM I have an HP dv6000 with a gig of ddr2 in two sticks of 512mb. Now if I want to upgrade can i get one 1gb ddr2 stick and have 1.5gb of ram. Will that work? What is it that I am thinking of that both sticks have to be the same size for it to work?

Does your motherboard have 4 RAM slots? If you're using Vista, 3 GB would be quite useful.
