    Question 9.04 - Jaunty Jackalope - How do I know what type of ram my PC needs?

    I've done a search for how to find out what type of ram my PC needs, but I couldn't get a straight answer.

    I've got an older computer that was given to me (as a gift to my sons). It's an Intel Pentium. I think it has 1 GB ram in it (I'm not even sure how much it has in there right now).

    Anyways, I want to upgrade the RAM so that it runs more smoothly.
    How can I find out what type of ram the motherboard will take? Is there an application or do I look somewhere in the Administration section?

    Please help.
    Oh you'll get yours, Microsoft.

    Do you know what make and model your PC is?

    If you know the model of your computer you can put it into the "memory advisor" on this website: http://www.crucial.com/

    If it's not a brand name computer, it will take some more work. Easiest way is probably to open the computer up and take out one of the memory sticks and see if there's a label on it. We can then help you decipher the label.

    Not sure if this helps or not, but I noticed that when the computer does it's POST, a lot of information was flying through the screen and I noticed that one part of that information read :

    512 MB DDR1 266 Mhz.

    I'm guessing that's the ram's information. Is this all I would need to buy more ram, or would I need more info.?
