Thnx

 

That's an OEM HP machine and as such you would be well advised to use fully JEDEC approved memory and check with HP to be certain of the DRAM you purchase.

 

I would NOT purchase any high end DRAM for that machine. You will not be able to use even the 4GB on a 32bit Vista OS. Very likely you will find about 3.2GB on a four GB population.

 

These are the only Corsair modules that are tested to work with your system.

In a two module configuration.

Derek gave a proper recommendation for the system you have. Your OEM system will not allow you to adjust certain voltages that may be necessary to get 4 modules or OCing type memory stable. Only certain memory is validated for the type of machine you have so that is what we recommend.

Please use the Corsair memory finder to select the proper memory options for your system: http://www.corsairmemory.com/configurator/default.aspx

Corsair does not have modules that would be supported in a 8GB configuration or even a four slot population for that machine.

 

It might work, it might not, the TWIN high performance modules are NOT advised for your machine as you do not have the BIOS settings necessary to implement the voltages for high performance memory.

 

My advice would be to purchase fully JEDEC approved standard 2GB Modules to see if it will work. Contact HP and ask them for approved 2GB 800Mhz modules for your system in an 8GB configuration.
