Query about what RAM type is suitable for my PC

  maciduc 01:30 27 Jan 2003

Now that i've been told that any CD-writer is compatible and someone recommended in increasing the random access memory, i was told that theres 2 types of RAM chips. Not sure what they are exactly are, but does anyone have any ideas which my computeer is compatible with?

my computer is a: -Hewlett Packard ,Model 7805 ,intel(r) Celeron(tm) processor ,GenuineIntel ,63.0 RAM

If you do happen to know what RAM type who simply where to get the right RAM chips for my PC then what website do you recommend i should buy from?

i appreciate the time,

There are two types of RAM now SDRAM and DDRAM

Single data rate and double data rate.

maciduc, if your computer is an HP Pavilion 7805, then Crucial recommend PC100 SDRAM. If you are using Windows 98, then I would recommend 128M of ram, and no more than 256M total. click here

I think I would be tempted to dump present 64Mgb chip and buy 2 bigger chips

i see, thanks for the responses, i did'nt really know that the RAM also depended on what system operator i had, i'm using Windows ME (millenium edition).
I really aprreciate the help, but does this system operator change the format of what RAM i am suppose to use for my PC?

i think that gongoozler's link is very useful, but i need to make sure i'm getting the right chips.
So could my system handle two 256MB module (RAM) chips if i installed it in my PC?
Or is there a limit, and would it be actually neccessary to have so much RAM chip power?

maciduc, if you click on my link above at 01-35 and use the configuration, then Crucial will guarantee you get the correct memory, or exchange, but you must use their system to identify your requirements. J.
