    My brother has a HP Pavilion xt938. Specs are AMD1.3, 60 gig hd, 128 pc133 and Windows xp Home. He wants, NEEDS to add memory. Does he have to put in another 128 sdram or can he put in any size. I found out his mobo has two slots and will go up to 1 gig. But I can find no other info on the mobo. Thanks in advance for the help.
