Go to crucial.com and download the scanner. It will tell you what RAM is compatible with your system and how much RAM can you add.

You certainly want the PC2-6400 ones, should Crucial have them. It's likely going to be a total of 4 or 8GB


Although you may pay a few more dollars at Crucial, if you use this tool, they guarantee it's the right RAM. Or return shipping on them. 


EDIT: Here you are, 4GB Kit.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
