Ok, im not exactly sure if this is the right area to post, as i do not have a problem with my computer.

i want to upgrade my RAM, but i am unsure if my RAM is DDR1 or DDR2

my computer was bought sometime between 2003-2004, around the time RAM switch from DDR1 to DDR2

i am simply asking how i can get a detailed description of my computer.
whenever check the 'properties' tab on my 'my computer' it only has a very basic description of my computer, only saying how many GHz [2.07] and the RAM [512], but it does not list if it is DDR1 or DDR2.

would somebody kindly help/

please and thankyou

You can got to Crucial, plug in your computer specs, and they'll tell you what you can use, and how much of it.

A good program to use, to find anything you need to know, and more, about your computer, would be SIW.

Hi icy_bliss_magic. If you can find the make and exact model of your PC then you can shop for RAM at any retailer. This should be printed or embossed on the case. If the PC was purchased from Dell, HP, etc., then there should be a sticker on it on the back or bottom that has the model number.
