Thank you alot for your help..
I've finished the scan and here's the picture..
Look, my OS 32-bit so it's not gonna read more than 4GB Ram
I have 2GB KingSton-Ram bus 1333 DDR3[check the .pdf] and i have to buy a new 2GB KingSton-Ram bus 1333 DDR3 so that i can have 4GB Ram..
i guess Crucial Facilities can not provide me with a good info about upgrading my RAM, it can not recognize my hardware i think..
if u have any advice for me would be great.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, i appreciate your help very much

Hmm, usually Crucial gives you a little more info. But from your post I gather you know what you have to buy. Since you have a single 2GB stick now, I would add another 2GB stick. You will not be able to use the full 4GBs because of the address space limits in 32bit, but given that RAM is not very expensive (especially the small difference between a 1GB Dimm and a 2GB Dimm), it should not matter a lot. And maybe one day you want to install a 64bit system. Then you still have 2 open slots for more RAM
