    And I came into your store saying I wished to purchase:

    512 MB PC133 SDRAM (3.0-3-3-6 @ 133 MHz)

    would you require to know its

    Total Width 72-bit and its Data Width 64-bit and that it is

    Synchronous and would you ask whether I wanted

    4-Chip or 8-chip?

    and is there anything I have missed?

    Thanks.

    Howdy aarhus2004...

    What I ask when people want to purchase memory is...

    Who is the manufacture of the pc ?

    What model # is it ?

    If it isn't a name brad ( ie: home built )...

    Do you know what type/model of motherboard do you have ?

    Because it all depends on the type of motherboard ( ie: what company made it and the model # it is ), as to what memory it can take...

    When I wanted RAM I took out the existing module and looked at the Micron Serial number, matched the number on the Crucial web site, and proceeded from there.

    And that was all I had to do.

    Not quite as interesting as working with two V-18 9000 BHP Marine engines with two turbo-chargers per bank and four valves per head. Four V8 generators and all of the associated engine room equipment, breaking ice up the Gulf of St. Lawrence in winter and voyaging around the Great Lakes in summer, which I found to be far more rewarding.

    As far as what details I need to take, with cash in hand, to my friendly neighbourhood computer store, and hopefully not appear to be a complete idiot, I am resigned to so appearing. It could take me several journeys. Never-mind.

    There is something in my old head which says "oil and water don't mix" But I never believed it, unless something insisted I go deep down to sort out this or that. I even worked my passage as a greaser once. I had some fun which included carrying the beer for the lads in a bucket - and drinking it with them. But I was a decky thru and thru. Into sights of all highly visible celestial objects; especially the nurses who danced away the nights with both 'upers and downers' - that's stairs for the landlubbers - companionways for a fellow salt.

    Cheers, RAM-PAGE.

    When you mix oil and water you get an emulsion. So they do mix. A greaser on my watch stopped me from choking on a segment of grapefruit by applying the 'whatever' manouever.

    Are those same nurses still there at Hope Hospital? I wonder?

    I would just make a note of your computer's make and model, and take the existing RAM module with you. Or put the computer's make and model into the Crucial search engine and see what it comes up with.

    CPU-Z will help you find out about your mainboard and, if you can find the mainboard manual on the 'net as I did, it will let you know how much RAM you can use.

    Take a look at the PDF file on the link below.

    Cheers! (y)
