    Hi,

    i need to upgrade my memory. I know that i already have SDRAM installed. Is this all you need to know when purchasing more?

    In case not, I have copied and pasted the details of my computer, hoping that someone can advise me about what kind of memory i need to go out and buy.

    Thanks in advance.

    This should be what you need

    SDRAM, PC133 • CL=2 • Unbuffered • Non-parity • 7.5ns • 3.3V

    You can check using www.crucial.com configurator, although there are about 5 different motherboards with that number they looked like they all used the above, the last configuration info on the above is missing as that changes with the size of the chip you but

    cubbycuddly,

    You can find out just about everything about the software and hardware on your comp using a utility called AIDA32;

    http://www.aida32.hu/aida32.php

    The version you need, if you decided to try it, is 3.20 released last month (not the recently released 'preview' version which, I think, means its beta).
    It's freeware and quite easy to use.

    Because its only reading fixed product identity details it should not amend any files or settings but, as with any program, read all the details before you try and use it. Be particularly careful with the Report function because if you elected to go for a print out you could get dozens of pages its so detailed!
