I'm unable to confirm that you will not have probems like James108.
Is you PC as described at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docnam
But the memory crucial recommend should work, other user with a1110y PCs have written good reviews. Bear in mind what it says on the crucial website and others places about maximum useable memory, just in case you look and find less than 4GB

I have an HP p6710f with 4GB RAM and want to upgrade it.
I already posted a similar question in another thread but this thread may be more appropriate. I apologize for that.
I’m confused about which slots to use. I thought in order to use dual channel memory that identical RAM has to be installed in each channel, a each channel has its own color. IOW if there were 2GB in a black slot then there should be 2GB in a blue slot. And this thread states “Install these in "paired" slots - usually slots 1 & 3 or 2 & 4”.
I opened up the case and there was a 2GB stick in each of the black slots & nothing in the blue slots. So I looked a bit further & another thread says to use identical RAM in slots of the same color.
Which is correct?

Thank you Big Dave.
I looked at the HP p6710f specs & the mobo information & did not see anyrhing like you posted. I also tried to find similar on the mobo manufacturer's website & did not find anything like this either.
What was confusing to me is that some searches said to use slots 1&3 and 2&4. It appears some slots are arranged with the same colors next to each other & some alternate colors.
Thank you very much,
