Google the model + memory upgrade and sort through the results.

Run the Crucial Memory scanner. Crucial System Scanner software to find out what type of memory is in your computer

Compare all results. Post back any questions, resolve discrepancies before ordering.

You can also go to a service counter at CompUSA, TigerDirect, MicroCenter type store to get the correct RAM spec'd and purchased at not much more than online, plus have the ability to take it back if it doesn't fit - which it always has for me.

Download More RAM! This is just a joke.

You would need to purchase and install the correct RAM as Greg has pointed out in the above post.

Alright cheers guys, sorted out the screen problem and its all working fine. I'll think about changing the operating system to 64 bit, and upgrading the RAM, I do play a fair few relatively high spec games on here after all - I'll come back and seek your help if I decide to do it
