Looks like there's no support on their forum if the scanner doesn't work, e.g. click here.

Why don't you use the manual tool. If you don't know details of your motherboard, download SIW click here (standalone version), run it & look under Hardware > Motherboard for the make & model number. Use these details to do a manual search.

If you get stuck, provide us with the motherboard make + model number (OR exact system make & model number) & we'll help you out. G

Right, looks like what you need is PC2700 DDR RAM, with each slot able to take a max of 512Mb.

Do you know how much memory you have installed atm, & how many slots free?

Also the exact model number of the Evesham PC will be a great help. G

i have 1024mb 417 free no model think it was one of there specials can i assume from this that i have one slot free and that i can add a 512 mb ram

Most likely yes, but not 100% sure from the info you provided. SIW is not always accurate with respect to the max one can install.

Let's get a 2nd opinion. Download, install & run EVEREST Free Edition click here.

Or, if you want to take the chance: Corsair PC Memory (RAM) DIMM DDR 333Mhz (PC2700) CL2.5 - 512MB click here = £11.99. G

Slot 'A1' has 256 MB
Slot 'A2' has 512 MB
