Hewlett-packard / Pavilion slimline s3700z

Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64bit
I just bought a new computer online, and then decided to buy it some RAM to replace what will already come with it/ in it. It has 2 1GB DDR2 800MHz SDRAM in it, and I bought 2 2GB. The computer is an HP Pavilion Slimline s3700z PC with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 dual-core 2.7GHz processor.
I bought 2 2GB 800MHz DDR2 N-ECC CL6 DIMM. Will the new Ram work?

You should have check BEFORE buying. It does appear you have the right RAM though. Below is a link from HP showing what you can use.

"Will the new Ram work?"

More than likely, but you bought slow CL6 RAM. Hopefully you didn't pay much for it. Here's 4GB (2 x 2GB) of Corsair DDR2-800 CL5 for $15 after rebate:


This Corsair RAM for $17 after rebate has even better specs. Definitely worth the extra $2...lol:

The RAM works great! Thank you both for responding. It was a little difficult to get to the slots, but I managed, and now my computer is running very well. If I ever need any help with purchasing ram I will take your suggestion into advisement.

Thanks RLR
