If you go to the above site,, about halfway down the page, on the righthand side, there is a 'scan my system' button, use this to find out what you need.

As many will testify, Crucial is an excellent company.

The blurb from the site;

Not Sure Which Memory Upgrade You Need?
Want to eliminate the hassle and risk of getting the wrong memory—guaranteed, or your money back?

Select your computer's manufacturer, product line, and model in the Crucial Memory Advisor tool.

If you don't know these details about your computer, try the Crucial System Scanner below to find the recommended upgrade automatically.

Hope this helps.
