I have a Gateway E-3600. System configuration says 256MB memory currently installed. I want to upgrade to 512MB. Can I purchase an additional 256MB DIMM module to get 512MB, or do I have to remove the current 256 and purchase and install a single 512MB DIMM module? Thanks.

we have to find out specific technical details before you fry your system... if u d/l everest, and look around. you will find out what kind of memory you will need EXACTLY

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
