The eBay was the better choice, chances are very good it will work.

Test it by swapping with your existing stick, in the same slot, run Memtest, if OK, add your stick to the second slot, test again. 

Good luck.

I did not forget you, I just received my memory stick.
I replaced my existing (and tested) RAM with the new one, left it overnight with memtest for 10 hours and it passed.
So tonight I should test both RAM sticks in dual channel?

After 9 more hours, the dual channel memtest came back with no errors! I'm already running my computer with 4GB RAM and I feel like in heaven.
I'm off to install the rest of the programs.

iammykyl thanks for all the help and patience, you can mark the topic as solved, finally!

 

Jasminebusha I'm not sure what you're advising.

Pleased it has gone well, You are most welcome, :thumbsup:

If you have not done so yet, most important is to create recovery media.

Oh... it seems that the post is deleted. Nevermind, it didn't make much sense anyway.
