Alas, the memory advisor on in an alphabetical list of HP models has nothing between "Presario" and "Professional". So no "Probook".
So you might have to check the manual about what type of memory it has and what's the maximum amount.

Luckily, I understand it now has 4 GB and for most people that's enough.
