Anybody know what memory I need to buy to increase the standard 128Mb of a HP
Vectra VL400 (P3) ?

I've been told as long as I use double-sided SDRAM I'll be ok but the HP website
seems to say you need the genuine HP part.

And how much memory can I add to it?

thanks in advance.

Disregard HP's website regarding the requirement for a "genuine" HP part with a
"genuine" HP sitcker affixed to a generic SDRAM DIMM. Sheesh! I'll bet HP may
no longer stock memory upgrades for your VL400.

If the processor has a speed multiple of 133, you need PC133. If the processor
has a speed multiple of 100, you need PC100. If the system is an older, slower
P3, the DIMMs must have low density memory chips. "Speed multiple" includes
fractional multiples by 1/2, i.e. 550 MHz is a multiple of 5.5x100 and 733MHz is
a multiple of 5.5x133.

Try crucial.com for good memory advice, competitive prices (tho a little on the
high side) and high quality memory... Ben Myers
