The above link is to the HP/Compaq site where you can view the specs for your computer. It looks like your model will support up to 8Mbs of PC2-6400 DDR2-800 memory. You can check to see what you currently have installed and go from there. Without more information than what you have provided, I really can't make a recommendation other than to match the type and size of the RAM currently installed with any new memory you buy.
