How do I upgrade the RAM on my machine?

Question

I would like to upgrade to 64 meg of RAM or more. Would it be best to go to Packard Bell to get the RAM or should any type work? How many pins and are there different types for different machines.

Our suggestion would be go to a local computer store and tell them the full model name and manufacturer of your computer and ask them what is compatible with your system If you go to CompUSA as I recently did they printed me out a sheet listing the compatible RAM chips for my machine and what the maximum my machine could handle etc Then you can check the prices and features there versus the prices and features on the Packard Bell web site and make an informed decision Be careful because incorrect RAM or too much RAM can be a problem!
