  1. Is this yours? -> HP - Compaq dc7800 Series Convertible Minitower Desktop/PC

    Memory:
    DDR2 PC2-8500, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 PC2-5300
    Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-8500, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC)
    Maximum Memory: 8GB
    Slots: 4

    In most cases, when u have DDR2, u cannot use DDR3, as it is different from DDR2.

    Unless there is a slot for DDR3 too.
  2. Take a look what is different.

    On the bottom of the RAM stick, there is a notch in different place so users cannot place in the wrong RAM.
