@Max,

"when my wife comes home and sees one of my hobby projects scattered around the family room LOL"

If I saw you scattered around my family room, I'd screech too. But then again, I don't have a family room.

I ordered 4x1GB DDR2 DIMMs from Crucial.com. Hopefully, this will work.

JGrubbs,

Thanks for the link. It's quite possible that the PC doesn't support 2 GB DIMMs. I found 1 GB DIMMs online at $17 each, but then need four of them. Total $68. The person paying may not want to spend that much given that the PC is used mostly for email and a little browsing on a dialup connection. The benefits may just outweigh the costs.

Here is a link to the Service Manual for the dc5750.

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=3252512&docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-c00803472

Appendix F has info on the memory supported, it shows 256MB, 512MB and 1GB DIMMs.

Don't know 2GB DIMMs are the problem.
