Go HERE and see if your system is 32 bit or 64 bit

 

That will be a good starting point

 

Also ....what is your Operating System ?   (win 7, xp, win 8 etc etc)

This is subject to revision....but i am reasonably sure it is correct.

 

Your manual will tell you if the Chipset I have chosen is correct for your model.

 

 

Intel® G31 Intel ICH7      Chipset...

 

Memory Specifications Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) 4 GB Memory Types DDR2-667 / DDR2-800 # of Memory Channels 2 Max Memory Bandwidth 6.4 GB/s Physical Address Extensions 36-bit ECC Memory Supported No

So, there is your answer ArthBrah, 4 GB is the limit.

 

if we can help in any other way, just ask.

I usually recommend going to Crucial and running their system scanner.  It will tell you how much RAM you have installed and how much you can install and what RAM they sell that will fit your machine.  Kind of like the one stop shop for RAM.
