Default How to determine memory type?

I've got a Hewlett-Packard 2710P with awful memory.
Can I buy any old 4GB memory kit - or do I have to be careful of compatibility?
How do you you go about determining this?

Thanks everyone for teaching me all of this stuff. I ask a lot of questions on this forum, but I love learning it all.

CPU-Z will tell you what kind of memory you are running and what motherboard you have.

Memory upgrades, flash media, and usb storage at will tell you what types are compatible with your hp as well.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
