Thanks for quoting the RAM specs. FB-DIMMs will not fit in your PC, you need SDRAM DIMMs ("240 pin FB-DIMM DDR2 are notched differently from conventional 240-pin DDR2. Those types are neither mechanically nor electrically compatible." - from Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fully_Buffered_DIMM)
If you buy Kingston, Crucial, or Corsair memory, or from another reputable supplier who guarantees that the type of type supplied will work in your model of computer, you will be OK. Most have memory selection tools which allow you to choose the most appropriate RAM for your model. The Crucial one will summarise info about the RAM specs that HP supplied them - they are often slightly different to what you read on the HP website (HP give Crucial different info). I'd believe Crucial.

Hello we wanted to upgrade our memory from 2GB to 4GB by adding another 2GB memory module. we followed the requirements from this HP document : http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/templat

I noticed reading the Transcend link the this memory has programmable CAS latency, and the HP spec demands that this parameter be 9. Try entering your BIOS and setting the CAS latency to 9 (if you can). I think this how you change the CAS latency.
Also go to to following Transcend page, (http://www.transcend-info.com/Support/Search/Compa
Your memory is not useless, you can always sell it to an owner whose PC is compatible with it.

I am planning to upgrade my RAM from 4GB to 8GB. My HP specs can be found here.
I have checked the existing RAM, it is Samsung 240-pin DDR3 PC3-10600 non-ECC.
It is a bit difficult to get Samsung Memory here, so I'm thinking to change the whole thing with 2x4GB Kingston KVR13N9S4 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM.
- Do I choose the correct RAM for my PC?
- In single channel memory - would 2x4GB RAM (mine is 64-bit) increase the PC performance? I am planning to use it for autocad and their recommendation is 8GB.
