its ddr sdram dimm i know my pc takes ddr
i have two 256 sticks of ddr SIMM in it already
does my pc not take dimm?
when i though that i snapped it in alright and turned on my pc nothing would show up on my monitor
but the pc was still running
after i took the ram out it worked fine again
but i tried to put it back in and it doesnt fit and im not sure if it did fit the first time anyways
what could it be?
i have a compaq presario model S5322CC

According to Kingston the correct memory for your system (Compaq Presario S5322CC) is:

KTC-D320/128 - 128MB Module
KTC-D320/256 - 256MB Module
KTC-D320/512 - 512MB Module


See:That looks like newegg Item #: N82E16820144191 for the 512MB Module.
