Problems with Crucial scanner-Please help?

  buel 10:59 20 Jun 2009

Hi, my gf has a HP Pavilion dv-4 laptop and, strangely, the crucial memory scanner cant make a complete match and therefor could't recommend what Ram to buy so i tried to use their manual help tool and firstly i had to input the Manufacturer and when i get to 'HP' the only option is 'HP-Compaq' which isn't what her laptop is (pavilion), please can anyone explain why this is?

Hi, thanks for that, that s very useful! Ok, i've got the Manufacturer as HP-Compaq, the Product line as Pavilion DV4000 Series (as the laptop says it is 'Pavilion dv4 but nothing else) but i am unable to determine which 'Model' it is! The options are many, such as 'Dv4000 Series', 'Dv4000 Series (DDR2)', Dv4012ap' etc etc
How can i find which model exactly it is please?
