    Welcome to TSG!
    There are significant differences in types of RAM and which one is designed for your motherboard. It would help if you let us know what make and model your machine is if its a brand name or if it is custom built then the Motherboard make and model is necessary.

    With the information given I cannot find anything listed. I assume you mean Micro Express unit instead of Express Micro. Given Micro Express they use Motherboards from several different Manufacturers. Will need more specific info about motherboard in unit.

    Try downloading and running AIDA32.exe from Here and see if it defines what is in your unit.

    you can also go to www.crucial.com and download the "belarc advisor" there... it gives you all kindsa info on your system... crucial.com is a huge seller/manufacturer of memory modules, so they are a good bet for finding compatible ram...
