Hardware diagnost test showed failure "Modulo 20" error code ME516-8W. This is in one of the two 2GB SDRAM memories.
Should I replace one or both?

Unless you buy the replacement dimm from HP, I would suggest you replace both dimms as HP motherboards have been known to be finicky with mixing dimms.
I am recommending that you try the memory tools from these manufacturers: Corsair, Kingston and Crucial. Buying directly from a manufacturer normally guarantees compatibility as the manufacturer will stand behind the product.
