I donít mean to be redundant but here is another question about RAM. I have read the other RAM treads but am still unsure which RAM to purchase for my aging Compaq Presario 6410 NX computer.
I did an SIW Scan to identify my current RAM and here are the results:
Device Location Slot 2
Manufacturer Smart Modular
Capacity 256 Mbytes
Memory Type SDRAM DDR
Speed PC2100 (133 MHz)
Data width 64 bits
Voltage SSTL 2.5V
Manufacturing Date 1967, Week 2 (This has to be a mistake as the PC was not yet invented)
I went to a number of memory sites and they all did scans and they recommended which RAM to buy, so whatís the problem? After reading about memory on forums and from memory suppliers I have received the following:
Stay with the same RAM manufacturer. Unfortunately I canít find anyone selling Smart Modular memory. I also saw more than one thread that says that is not necessary. Most memory sellers say the same. So which is correct?
I also read that 512MB are all I need and it is better to use tow 256s than one 512. Is this true?
If so should I buy two 256s and discard my existing Smart Modular RAM?
