    I think most computer stores still carry SDRAM. Pay a visit to your favourite one and ask for the smallest PC100 SDRAM stick they have. You will probably get a 128MB one.

    well i plan on going to the store, but im wondering if this pc even excepts 128MB sticks. here is the pdf for the chipset, not sure if its supports up to 64, i see a chart there, but im still confused on maximum module size supported. Intel Corporation 82810 810 Chipset

    file is too big, so here is the link to dl the pdf

    The chipset info is no good. See the HP website for information about your specific model.

    I still recommend getting the RAM from a retailer and with warranty. Buying something that is prone to develop faults and with no way to test it yourself is just plain stupid.

    I have always bought my memory off of ebay, but yeah, whatever you feel safer doing.

    If you visit HP's site and check for information on your system, you will find that your system supports 256MB of Memory. You should be able to use PC133 or PC100 depending on the megabit technology.

    i810 chipsets support up to 512MB at the least, why HP limits your system to 2 X 128MB DIMMs, I don't know?!

    Once at HP site, go to drivers and download, select your system and then your operating system, you should find some updates.

    Your system is not "old" if you find PC133 or PC100 with 8chips on each side, you should be OK but I would check on-line, most places match modules to your system.

    Here is one from Kingston
