    Thanx to deep blue for answering my last question and now i got one more:

    I want to upgrade my memory and i have to know the exect type
    or have i not?
    Is there any software which can help me?
    If there is not maybe u can?
    I got Pentium 3
    64 all this by NEC
    what is DIMM? Is my memory 100 mhz or 133 mhz? I dont believe
    it's a ddr because my machine is pretty old.

    thank u very much for any answer
    "Live long and prosper" or something like that:D

    I do believe I gave you erroneous information about Belarc Advisor. It will not tell you the speed or type of RAM you have. However this one definitely will. Click on the link below and Aida32 should download. Download and install it then click on the program AIDA32 and it will generate a comprehensive lis of everything on your PC. Here is a screenshot showing where your info on memory will be.[​IMG]

    Actually, Belarc will not tell you what type of memory you have, just how much and in what configuration ( 64MB in slot1, etc).

    Try http://www.pcpitstop.com/ instead and do the online test of your system.

    Sorry again the last link I provided doesn't appear to be working. Here is the link to the website you can download it from there.

    Go to crucial.com. They have lists of pc and motherboard manufacturers to help find the type of memory you need. I belive that Kingston Memory can also help you find the right type.

    Hi, sometimes, if you are lucky, the details are written/stamped/labeled on the memory chip/card. Another way, get the make and model number of your motherboard, go to Google search engine and type in that info. You should be able to get to a site that has all the relevant information for you.
