what type of memory for an upgrade for an HP/Compaq dx2000MT?

hello and greets to the group....i am trying to help out a friend upgrade his pooter, an HP/compaq dx2000MT (EE216UC).....i went to the crucial.com website and it told me that there is 256 megs of RAM currently in the box and that i could upgrade to 4 gigs if i wanted to. the thing that i have not been able to find out about was what type of RAM it is. PC1600 or PC2100 or whatever type it is....i do not know....it would help make the system run so much smoother if more memory was installed....sorry, i dont have any of the original paperwork that came with the system...any thoughts would be greatfully appreciated. thanks to all in advance!!!!!!

Heres an idea.. Open the case take out the 1 or 2x sticks of ram and read on the chip what types in there find out how many chips there are and most computers are backwards compatible with higher speed rams my evo d310 is running 2x 1GB 184 ddr sdram sticks @ pc3200 and runs fine no problems at all theyre DIMMs too not SIMMs
if you dont want to open the computer then let me know I will find my copy of Everest and will let you use it to give me all information about the computer.

Just found out that that computer can handly any amount of ram (same as my evo d310) it can handle 2x 1 GB chips of ddr sdram 184pin which is not too bad either
pc3200 is your best idea.. get some 184pin ddr sdram pc3200 and run that its a good ram to run im running 2x 512MB chips @ pc3200.. There you got link to what type of ram it runs
