Here is a list of dimms that have been specifically tested on your motherboard.

The reason I asked you for memory dimm part numbers on my previous post is because if you have 6GB today and want to go to 8GB, the easiest way to do it is to just get two more dimms that are the same part number as your existing 2GB dimms.

that command will grab your memory dimm part numbers and copy them to the windows clipboard.

Even if I buy more ram , will the PC be able to use it or am I just wasting my money? Some pc's can only handle so mush ram even if you have extra slots on the motherboard. That is what I want to find out.

We need more information to help you. Please post the results of

wmic memorychip get partnumber |clip

The two posts below conflict with each other, so we do not know how much memory you have right now.

I think you will find that you have clicked your system specs and not his. Have another look at his system specs!

Hi Paul Black, perhaps I should have said that I was looking at the OP's post in post #7. If you look at the specs in post #7, then look at mine specs, then you will see that they are identical to the very last detail.

Do you think he is having a laugh?
If people want to be taken seriously and receive help on their problems/issues you would think they would at least do what we asked them to do. At the end of the day after all it is for their benefit!
