Hi,

I have a HP Compaq NX9020. One of the RAM slots contains 256MB of RAM that I need to upgrade. If I install two RAM cards/boards, do they have to be of the same value/speed? Would replacing the 256MB for a single 1GB work ok?

Many thanks.

Replacing the 256 meg stick with a 1 gig stick will work fine as long as the motherboard supports 1 gig sticks. For best results using two sticks, speed should match. If not, you will run at the slower speed IF they work together. Refer to your user manual or go to HP's web page for a manual for details on your system.
