See what kind you need here www.crucial.com/systemscanner and see what you already have. Then look at www.newegg.com

True, but you know that can be kinda spotty. Too many times I've had to return bad memory to them.

Interesting, I've never had that problem and I've purchased plenty from there.
You must by quite a lot or had supremely bad luck.

i did a scan and heres what mine showed





Your Crucial Scanner Results HP-Compaq 0634h Motherboard Specifications

Currently installed memory:



64MBSDRAM, PC100 32MB

Each memory slot can hold SDRAM, PC133 with a maximum of 128MB per slot.*



*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
Maximum Memory Capacity: 192MB
Currently Installed Memory: 96MB
Available Memory Slots: -1
Number of Banks: 1
Dual Channel Support: No
CPU Manufacturer: AuthenticAMD
CPU Family: AMD-K6-2 processor Model 8, Stepping 12
CPU Speed: 498 MHz
The name of this model may not exactly match the model description of your system, our system scanner could not identify a specific model name when evaluating your computer. However, it was able to identify the motherboard your system utilizes.

Q: Will my system recognize the maximum upgrade?

A: Possibly

How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found at http://www.crucial.com/kb/answer.aspx?qid=4251.


Q: What memory goes into my computer, and can I mix speeds?

A: SDRAM memory with support for SDRAM, PC133 speeds.

Because SDR memory is backward-compatible, you can safely upgrade your system with any of the guaranteed-compatible SDR speeds listed below.


Q: How much memory can my computer handle?

A: 192MB.

Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.

Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?

A: No.

No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance.


Q: Does my computer support dual-channel memory?

A: No.

Your system does not support dual channel.



Q: Does my computer support ECC memory?

A: No.

Your system does not support ECC. Because ECC and non-ECC modules should not be mixed within a system, install the same type of modules that are already in your system.

Man It looks like your limited to a mom and pop shop that MIGHT have what you need. Flys, New Egg and Micro Center all do not have what you need.

I'll ask my friend in Sachse for you tomorrow if you'd like.

Go to memory>ram>then look for notebook memory - pc100/pc133

just as the memory selctor told you.. "Each memory slot can hold SDRAM, PC133 with a maximum of 128MB per slot.*"

Find a cheap price, and then if still unsure use the phone numbers given to call the seller and ask..

Per crucial.com:
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
Maximum Memory Capacity: 192MB

This is why I'm gonna ask my friend tomorrow, although there was some 64meg 144pin PC133 SODIMM's listed on that one link.
