I have HP Pavillon Media Center PC , Model # m8200n

HP Recommended
GN551AA-ABA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My PC (October 2007) came with a total  3meg of RAM in 4 slots;

 

2 slots with 2 512meg RAM   =  1 meg

2 slots  with  2  1gig RAM       =   2 meg

      Total                                        = 3 meg

 

I want to add more RAM, say for a total of 6  or 8 RAM . How do I do it?
