Hi! I've been getting a low virtual memory message, and by poking around on your ever-so-lovely site, I've concluded that I need to up my RAM. I have and HP Pavillion a1110y series computer which came with 512 MB RAM and an 80G hard drive. The hard drive was upped to 160G this past winter due to an unfortunate power surge which fried half of the ports etc on my system. :)

Anyways, according to my mad research skillz (and crucial), this is what I need... http://www.crucial.c...28FDE80A5CA7304 Does this look okay to you guys? Will it be fairly easy for me to suss out and install myself? (I pride myself on not being a total doofus, an dI follow directions well.) Thanks in advance for you input!

Looks correct to me.

However, I would open your case and confirm the specifications. Before doing so, turn off your computer, unplug the power cord from your power supply, then press the power button a couple of times to drain any leftover electricity in your system. If you want to be extra safe, research how to ground your PC before touching any of the internal parts.

After... open your case, locate the memory, remove it and write down all the information on it. It should tell you the pin, MHz, 512MB, PC2# etc etc.
