    Yikes!! I want to upgrade my friend's computer.. ?? oh my! there's like different memory outthere!! how do i run the specs to find out which one do i need?? And if there is an empty slot that means it's upgradable right? Thank you!! Is it cheaper to get it off Ebay or is memory cheap enough now that it's not really worth the hassel?

    Thanks!! all this Simm and Dimm stuff is getting me a headache!! I don't know how to check to see what kind of memory i have or what my motherboard can handle.. thankds!!

    Hi hi,

    If it's a name brand computer, go to www.crucial.com
    where there is a list of proper RAM.

    If it's NOT a name brand, carefully remove the mem stick
    and take it to a computer repair place to pick out an exact
    match.

    I would think that the model number would be on the computer somewhere. Also, you need to lay off the espressos for awhile, methinks.
