Hi People

I have a HP Pavilion DV8000 with a AMD Turion 64 processor and it only has 512MB of RAM. I want to add a 1GB stick of RAM. I can get a DDR PC2700 333MB 1GB stick of RAM and I don't know if I need dual channel memory. Will the PC2700 DDR ram work?

TIA

Andrew

It should work, hp ships that system with pc2700.From what i could find the system doesnt support dual channel so adding the 1gb stick should work fine.

There should be a more specific model number for that laptop,= other than dv8000 as that is a generic model # Check the bottom of the laptop for a model # or product #to get a more specific answer here.
