I'm upgrading my friend's RAM for her laptop (preferably before she leaves for summer classes out of state, but either or I suppose). I originally obtained RAM from a coworker at my most recent job, however I'm not sure it has the correct number of pins. After searching about Gateway laptops I found that there are statements that Gateway recommends 200-pin memory, but some users stated this was not the correct size. After investigating the Device Manager in Vista (the OS on her laptop), I found that (like XP) it didn't tell me what I needed to know about the memory. Is there any way to look into the manufacturer or product ID for the RAM currently in her computer so that I can tell what came with? Or should I just crack it open and search the info on the individual DIMMs?

Thanks!

If you go to the Crossair Memory Configurator, it will allow you to input the maker of the laptop and the model and tell you what you need. This should help you determin if you have the right stuff.

Hello,

Another site to check out is Crucial.

http://www.crucial.com/

They can scan you system and tell you what RAM you need.

Cheers,
Mak
