Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.

rshaffer thanks for the reply. i know about crucial scanner but i cant use it now. it always hangs. maybe becoz im using mobile broadband. i just really need to know if latency, volts and timings of ram is important as well??? should i get the same 1 that i currently have?? im just curious becoz i check one of the website selling ram and they put the ram specs which includes timings voltages and latency. if i get pc3-10600 but the volts latency and timings are not the same would there be a conflict and will not work??

Though in a perfect world yes it would be nice to have everything match it seldom happens.
I'm guessing what you are describing is
DDR3
PC3 10600 memory?

Putting the system into crucial's site I find the maximum amount of memory your system can have is 4 gigs total using two slots with 2 gigs max in each.

Each memory slot can hold DDR3 PC3-10600 with a maximum of 2GB per slot.*




The specs I find that match your system all have the below in them

DDR3 PC3-10600 • CL=9 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1333 • 1.5V


Specific memory as you have mentioned for a 2 gig memory module is below. As long as your additional memory has these specs you should be fine.

# Module Size: 2GB
# Package: 240-pin DIMM
# Feature: DDR3 PC3-10600
# Specs: DDR3 PC3-10600 • CL=9 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1333 • 1.5V • 256Meg x 64 •

The 256 is the amount each of the chips on the module are in capacity. 4 chips on each side is 1 gig on each side. Double sided memory would make it 2 gigs total on the module.
64 I believe means it is 64 bit compatible memory.
