memory upgrade

  sinbad1 16:04 03 Jun 2005

I want to upgrade my PB Imedia 5126 computer with an additional 512MB.

Looking at their site and giving the seriel Number it comes up with a choice of three speeds
3200,2700 and 2100.

Is there any way of finding out the speed of my present memory without physically taking it out?

You can download Belarc click here it will tell you speed of CPU as well as motherboard info then go to Crucial click here and get what they say your computer can take.

Crucial shows speed at 2100 ;but feel it should be 2700, need to be sure so i can order the same speed as installed.

If everest > motherboard > overclock > spd is not showing the module like this click here

Then if you know the motherboard make and model and the exact cpu, you can find the memory speed from the bios. It will either be listed by speed ( 133Mhz, 166 or 200 )or by spd. This is why you will need the motherboard manual and the exact cpu.
