I looked up the specs for her laptop and the best (and cheapest) I could find was: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/95741
Is this compatible with the Presario V6150EA and would I be able to just buy 2 (2x 1Gb) of them and replace the old memory for it?
Thanks for your time and any help!
You are correct: Win 7 will much better with more ram.
Also correct: Replace both modules. Never mix.
If that model will accept 2 x 2GB, this would be still better.
If not, be sure to get either a SD or af fast usb 2.0 4GB stick to use as "ReadyBoost" memory. This will bring a slight, but not overwhelming, improvement.
I recommend going to the manufacturer's website to find out which memory modules are compatible with the computer. Sometimes this is the full spec documentation for a computer.
More important is to run the Microsoft Upgrade Advisor to make sure if Win 7 will run or how on the computer. Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor
