I've been looking at possibly upgrading my ram again and was looking at the max that it can be expaneded to. The specs givin on the emachine website says that the computers ram can be expanded up to 2gb yet the specs on the motherboard itself say it can go to 4gb. Which should i believe?

Well according to crucial that computer supports 1gb per slot times 2 slots for a total of 2gb.

Did you buy it new? Maybe the motherboard has been replaced?

yes i bought the computer new. from what i figure one of two things. The specs for the computer are wrong or emachine has a bios in place to limit the memory expandability. According to crucial the motherboard supports up to 4gb yet the specs for the computer say 2gb.

Well usually a name brand like e-machine has the boards modified to their specs so my guess is you will be limited to 2gb. What does crucial say for the board? 2 or 4 slots? maybe emachine had the extra 2 taken off or they had a less expensive memory controller installed....
