One thing about adding RAM in your computer, is that you have to find ones that will work. This can be a little difficult to find on your own, so I recommend you take these steps:
Go to crucial.com
and follow the three steps. It will walk you through your computer make, and model and also ask if it is a laptop or desktop. When finished, it will show you the different memory configurations that your computer can use. In my example, it showed me that I can use 128MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, or 1 GB sticks; speed DDR PC2100; type 184-pin DIMM. I can take this information to a local store and look for RAM that is 184-pin DIMM DDR PC2100 and then find the amount that I want.
You may also want to take in consideration how many slots that you have available.
One of the easiest ways to do this is to open your computer case up and physically see how many sticks of RAM that you currently have.
If you prefer not to go that route and want an application to tell you, feel free to d/l Everest Home
