Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.RAM is usually very easy to increase but what is the model of your computer and I will asisst with this.
rf170av#aba HP PAVILION D4650Y PC
IT HAS intel(R) Core(TM)2 duo processor E6600(2.4Ghz)
2GB DDR2-667MHz dual channel SDRAM (2x1024)
250GB 7200 rpm sata 3 gb hard drive
You can increase your RAM to 4GB by replacing the RAM sticks with a pair of 2GB ddr2 sticks. They are just plug ins and you can get them at the site below.
They are easy to replace. Just open the computer cabinet and locate the sticks that are in there. Unlock them and snap out and put the new ones in. THats all there is to it.

What do you mean? Do I have to physicaly open my computer? I am not familiar with that.You make it sound so simple but I don't know how to "locate the sticks" What do they look like? How do I "open the computer cabnet"? I have never done that.
One of the side panels of the cabinet will have a few screws on the back. Remove the screws and the panel will come off. Inside you will see a pair of green thin sticks that plug into the motherboard. THey are about 3 inches long. The new ones will look just like them. If you look on the edges of the ones that are there you will see a small lever, just push the lever out and the sticks will pop out. Slide the new ones into the slots that they came out of and your done. When you get the new ones and look in the cabinet it will make more sense then it does now. It is really very easy to do.Remember, if for any reason you are unsatisfied with my answer, we can continue the conversation until you’re satisfied and Accept my answer.
