    My current 6910P has 2gb of memory. I flipped over the notebook and popped off hte bottom cover and there is no memory stick there. Are there other places the memory mounts? And does this mean I can add more to it? I was under the impression I had 2 x 1gb sticks of ram. Is the bottom slot a third slot? Thanks for any info.

    no....i believe that the compaq 6910p has only 2 slots....downlad cpuz and check how many slots are there and what is the spec of the current ram....i think u can max it out at 2x2GB PC2-6400 for sure....:)
    My d630 has the ram slots in the weirdest of places so u might have to look for it by removing the keyboard maybe....

    You have a 1x2GB stick of RAM installed underneath the keyboard. The spare slot can accomodate another stick of RAM. There are only 2 slots.

    Yup, You guys are right. I found one stick under the keyboard.

    446430-001. 2048-MB memory module (667-MHz, PC2-5300, 1-DIMM)


    Where can I get a 2nd stick? Would the 6400 kit mentioned above be better and would this even take use of the extra memory speed?

    You can get a 2nd stick anywhere online. Check the RAM deals thread.
    The PC6400 kits make no difference as the 965 chipset will limit the bandwidth to 667MHz. Just get the cheapest 2GB RAM you can find. They are mostly compatible.

    just run a system scan on crucial.com or memoryx.com and buy the ram with the same spec from anywhere....to check the max ram supported by the chipset....download pc wizard 2008 from cpuid.com and it wud tell u the max ram frequency support....

    Ok, I had planned on getting the same stick from HP if possible to make sure the Dual Channel mode works with no problems. Having a hard time finding the one I have for sale.
