If you cannot lay your hands upon the computer's manual and the
manufacturer doesn't provide a support web site, you can use one or more
of these utilities to help determine the correct type of RAM needed:

SiSoft's Sandra
http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/index.php?dir=&location=swa...

Belarc Advisor
http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

Unlimited Possibilities' AIDA32
http://forum.aumha.org/overflow/aida32.zip

Lavalys' Everest Home
http://www.lavalys.com/products/overview.php?pid=1&lang...


Also, Crucial Memory's web site (www.crucial.com) has a database
to help to find the right RAM for your specific make and model
computer and/or motherboard.

Choose wisely. It is absolutely essential that any new RAM
module(s) be fully compatible with both the motherboard and/or any other
RAM module(s) already in the system. Additionally, there are sometimes
jumper switches on older motherboards that need to be reset for new RAM
configurations. Consult your motherboard's manual or the manufacturer's
web site for specific instructions and compatibility requirements.

True and good idea.. Just make sure you unplug the computer's power cord
before you take the RAM module out from the motherboard.

This may seems like a "Doh!", but in fact, most of the other operations like
changing a PCI cards are best done after powering down the computer, of
course, *but* keeping the power cord plugged in the wall outlet or the power
bar, to provide ground. RAM change needs the power cord to be unplugged.

Just my A+ 2 cents.

i just whent threw this.
enter cpuz hit search
click on cpu-z
click on downloads
click on 126
click save- download to desktop
right click on icon/ click open
should get a screen with 4 ico
right click on cpuz {far left on my pc} open
click on run
another window opens - click run
a cpuz window opens click on memory
it will look something like this. [the following is my memory, yours will
most likely
be diffrent.]
199.5mhz
1:1
3.0 clocks
3 clocks
3 clocks
8 clocks
in my case, my speed is 3-3-3-8. if i would have bought and added a faster
speed such as 2.5-3-3-5 my pc would still have run at the lower speed. that
is why you have to know what your speed is and match it to the new upgrade.
hope this helps
go to newegg.com and they will help you find the right memory
good luck dave

Most BIOS will display this information to you directly without opening your computer or downloading a program.

While your computer is booting you must press a specific key on your keyboard and every computer has its own favorite.
mine is the Delete key but i have seen all of these options.
F12
F8
F9
TAB
Esc
F2
F1


Off topic a bit i find it amusing when i read about older computers which in reality are probably stile in use :)

"199.5mhz"
