Help with installing new memory

  bobthe4th 14:28 22 Jan 2007

I am looking to increase the memory of my PC to improve performance. I would appreciate any help in determining what type of memory I need - is it a case of opening up the case to see what size the empty slot is? Any advise is much appreciated.

I tried to use a guide I found on the internet that got you to put in your type of computer to tell you what memory was compatible. But my system model wasn't included under the list of Tiny ones.

My pc specs (obtained using Belarc Advisor) are as follows:

System model - Tiny MS-6741 1.0
Main Circuit Board - bus clock 200 megahertrz
Bios: American Megatrends Inc Version 07.00T 4/02/01
512mb installed memory
slot 0 = 512mb
slot 1 = empty
Processer = 2.40 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64
128 kilobyte primery memory cache
512 kilobyte secondary memory cache

The link is the site I used before - my model isn't listed - they are all called things like Power system. My model is a code. Any ideas?

Does it not say somewhere on the outside of your Tiny computer case what model it is?
If not my only suggestion is let the Crucial run Scan My Computer and see what it says.

Hi, as the other guys have said, let Crucial scan your computer, does not matter what make it is, the Crucial scan will tell you exactly what your pc has/can have in relation to Memory.

Is there any way to run the crucial program from a disc? The tiny pc does not have internet access (long story short - tiny rip you off with only getting online with a specific provider and I can't get rid of it) so I have a seperate pc just for the internet. I don't want to get a new memory plug in that isn't compatable.

Hmmm, No, I don't think so, I was working on the assumption the pc was internet capable.
