Please let me know what you think! Thanks in advance
Your laptop has a V140 CPU which has a 533Mhz memory controller. You can run RAM up to 1066Mhz. Buying anything over DDR3 1066Mhz would be wasted. It also only supports up to 2GB in each slot so you can only use up to 4GB. Also, the newegg link you posted claims the laptop came with a 5400rpm hdd. If you can acquire a 7200rpm drive then that might be worthwile as well. I found all this info from cpu-world.com's listing for your V140 CPU and hp.com's manual for your laptop.
Whoa, cpu-z is awesome - thanks for the recommendation!
I checked it out, and yep it maxes out at 1066 - so now I'll get 2x 2gb 1066 and save 10 bucks in the process.
Thank you everyone for helping out so much
You're welcome, glad we could help. Also, check out your hdd and make sure it's not a 5400rpm hdd. If it is, see how cheap you could get a 7200rpm drive big enough for you as it would be a noticeable upgrade too I think. It alwyas has been in the past when I've upgrade the hdd to a 7200rpm drive.
