  • determine RAM type without opening case?

    I have 256MB of RAM, and I want to upgrade to 512MB. What questions do I need answers to when determining what type of memory to purchase, and can these questions be answered without opening my case? If not, what am I looking for when I open my case?

    Man, talk about use it or lose it. I used to know the answers to these questions.

    Usually you can find the type of ram in the mother board's hand book, if its a custom computer. I think, not possitive, but there might be some online test to tell you what type you have.. maybe i'm making things up here..

      Bios may well be able to tell, memory frequency and timings are usually all in bios somewhere. If your not sure, post the timings and somebody may well figure it out from your other specs.

        Buy good ram, I have 3 different types of ram in my comp right now. From where I see it as long as each stick can support your timings in your bios they should work fine.

          I've learned that DDR PC2100 is what I have now.

          Ok. Next question. I'm going to buy a second 256MB chip.

          Does brand name matter? If so, recommend some please.

                Corsair. Never had a bad chip, can run 'em at max speed and even faster if you choose. Used to be rather pricey, but now approximate same price as crucial/kingston. Mushkin is great as well, but more expensive.
                "Hardly used" will not fetch a better price for your brain.
