Hi, I have a little hardware-question. I have a PC with 256 mb RAM (2 x 128) and want to change to 2 x 512. My specification is: 2 x DDR DIMM slots, support DDR400/333/266, max cap. 2 GB.
I found a nice offer for 512 MB, but it says it is DDR II, will this work?
Thanx for your help!

regards, Elise

If your modules are DDR you can't use DDR2, it won't even fit in your expansion slot.

If you wish to add more RAM you can to to Crucial and either use their scan feature to see what they suggest, or you can use their memory advisor where you enter the facts about your computer and they will show you the max amount of RAM that you can put in each expansion slot, the max total amount of RAM, and will make suggestions of what will work in you computer.

Alternatively, if you have a problem doing this you can list the make and model and any version and we will be glad to help you find modules that will work in your computer.

I did it all alone, and it works great, it was ddr 400. Thanks for your help!

regards, Elise
