I am attempting to upgrade the RAM in a machine. It's an old Compaq Presario S7500UK.

It currently has a 512MB DDR, 400 PC3200.

I have a spare 1GB chip from another machine which works fine and i buoght a 2GB chip to go in too.

It is a 667MHz 240PIN DIMM

PC2 5300.

As you guys probably already guessed it dosn't fit in the slots I have.

Could you give me some advice on the kind of chips i can use with it because i have no idea really what i'm looking for.

Any help will be appreciated :thumbsup:

Welcome to bleepingcomputer!

You should also know that DDR is 184-pin while DDR2 is 240-pin. You could probably use other speeds of DDR such as DDR 333mhz, PC2700, but for best results, I would recommend sticking with DDR PC3200.
