uhh…need help on updating my ram.
i have a compaq presario, athlon 750. originally came with a PC100 256 DiMM(?) or SIMM(?) i dunno. i then bought another PC100 256.
now i would like to buy a 512 one to replace one of the 256. but am having trouble finding the same kind. the DDR ram slots (pins) look different. mine has three bunches of pins (2 long, 1 short). will anything else work? can i just buy any PC133, 400, etc that looks like it would fit. or do i have to make sure from compaq the motherboard can handle it? what kinds of prices am i looking at. saw fnac (for convenience) had 512 DDR for 100USD. but will prob end up going to guanghua. just don’t feel like getting ripped off. hope i am making sense.
