i'm having some difficulty getting a straight answer with regard to upgrading my RAM by a further 256 mb. My pc is custom built and nobody seems to recogniose the specs.... so i thought maybe i could just say what my current memory stick is and just repeat? except with a different manufacturer cos can't find Hynix! stick is 256mb, chips are hynix 239A HY57V56820BT-H. white label with the bar code says 32x64 pc133 s7g4c8nHYN133. can anybody tell me what this is retail terms e.g. pc133 standard or SDRAM or whatever?!! Many thanks

Your current memory is a 256MB PC133 SDRAM chip, if you are looking to upgrade your memory further I wouold suggest that you purchase a PC133 SDRAM chip since that is what you currently have in your system, but you may need to refer to your motherboard manual to see if there is a specific way that your motherboard handles memory Examnple: some motherboards require that memory be installed in pairs - meaning that if you want to add 256MB to your computer then you would need to purchase 2-128MB ram chips, On the other hand some motherboards only require that the slot with memory have any combination of chips.
