    Hey,

    trying to figure out what kind of RAM is in my girlfriends computer. She only has 128 MB and I was gonna get her some more.

    I just dont know where to look.

    Went to start>settings>control panel>system> and here is where I get lost.

    Trying to find out what kind (pc133 etc. and how many pins)

    Thanks

    if you pull the stick out and look in the long socket that it was seated in, if you see 2 notches then you're looking for SD, if you see only one notch, then it is DDR.

    Whatever happened to flowers? I know what happened to chocolates (Twiggy).
