    HP Laserjet 5p Memory

    Purchased the above second-hand to use under Windows XP Pro and want to add additional memory. What info I can d/l states that the memory is simms. Had a look at Mueller's Upgrading & Repairing PCs, 14th Ed and it suggests that there are "plain, everyday simms" and then there are HP simms (subtly modified or I'm not sure what). A few other mfrs also do this as well. Don't want to buy the wrong Ram. I tried on HP but as best I can determine, the HP special stuff is no longer offered by HP.

    Will plain, ordinary, run-of-the-mill Ram work or do I have to locate memory modules (simms) that are HP compatible? If the latter, exactly what do I need to get to have compatibility?
