    Sorry about the stupid question But..........

    I got a memory(thingy) to install and i found where it goes inside but it does'nt fit.

    the card is a Azenram and says on label 100% compatible

    I have a Cicero which i don't see on anybodys list of manufacturers list(it's from future shop thats probably why)

    anyways it almost goes in and the clips almost line up should i use my hammer and persuade it to go:D jk

    is it the wrong type and how can i find the right one(I know go ask future shop right):rolleyes:

    I got this for nothing and was hoping I was doing something wrong as i've never seen the insides before(scary:confused: )

    Thx for any help on this stupid question:)

    What brand name, model name, and model number is your computer? This will help to determine what type of RAM it needs and the maximum amount of RAM that it can use.

    You might be better off having a computer shop do it, since you are obviously having problems doing it. It is easy for them to do and the cost should be very reasonable.

    Using a hammer to "persuade" the RAM module to fully seat is definitely not the thing to do. (n)

    By the way, no question is stupid. That is what these forums are here for, so you can learn. ;)

    Future shop uses a generic motherboard and they don't say who makes it. Your best bet may be to ask them.

    You could always remove the present memory and compare it to the one your installing, if there exactly the same size on the pins and notches you probably need to pust a little harder. Some memory takes a good shove to get it in. But don't push so hard as to flex and break the motherboard.
