    Hello, I currently have a single stick of 2GB RAM in my computer. I googled advice on what to look for to know whats compatible, and found one I like on newegg, however I am alittle lost on my user manual, and am wondering if someone can transfer this to english.

    DDR2 533/667/800 SDRAM (240pin/ non-ECC) (for 73U/PV)

    DDR2 533/667 SDRAM (240pin/ non-ECC) (for 73V)

    2 DDR2 DIMMs (4GB max)

    That is what my manual says works for my computer, the RAM I want is compatible with the first one. However it is 800 SDRAM DDR2 and I do not understand if I need to pay attention to that second row? Since it does not have a 800 compatibility, only 533 and 667.

    I looked up my model number and all the manufacturer site gave me was:

    DDR2 Memory DDR2 533/667/800
    DDR3 Memory N/A
    Memory Channel Single
    DIMM Slots 2
    Max Memory (GB) 4

    Can anyone let me know if the newegg RAM will work?

    The 533, 667, and 800 are the speeds it supports, 800Mhz being the fastest supported speed. DDR2 is the type, all DDR2 is 240 pin. Non-ECC means its not Error Correcting Code - its used in servers and workstations but not home system to fix memory errors.

    If you want to be sure you buy the correct RAM I wold suggest you visit the website of a memory reseller or manufacturer an use their memory selector to choose the right RAM. Example: http://www.crucial.com/
