    I wouldn't buy memory from eBay. Go to www.crucial.com and see what kind of memory (including maximum chip size) your computer needs.

    If you have an extra stick sitting around, give it a try. In my experience, "too-big" sticks will often be detected by older systems at half their actual capacity.

    If you will be buying memory, DoubleHelix is right. Bite the bullet and order the right stuff. Go to Kingston/Crucial/Corsair/etc, look up what you need, then buy it from NewEgg/ZipZoomFly/etc.
