Memory Upgrade I have an HP Pavilion dv2000, about 1 year old. It has vista, but only 958 MB of RAM. It runs slow and loud and has trouble playing videos from the internet and DVDs. Would upgrading to 2 GB of RAM be likely to fix these problems? If I took my laptop to a BestBuy store near me and purchased the RAM there, would they also install it for me?
