Solved!

I would like to upgrade my HP Pavilion a6400

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion a6400f Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows Vista

Wondering if someone can help me with some upgrades on my desktop? What I know is it has the IPIBL-LB motherboard 2 IGB ram sticks and 2 512MBram sticks an intel E2200 dual- core 2.2GHZ. The only thing I ever did to it was put in a 1 TB seagate HD.

Thanks.

Danny

to take advantage of the dual channel you must have identical modules
If you have a 32 bit version you can only have 4 gb
little point if you have three now
