Doubling up memory

  snowy30 22:20 06 Jan 06

Lately I've been thinking of doubling up my memory from 512MB to 1024MB. I have 512 DDR-SDRAM installed in my HP computer, and according to the online manual the motherboard has only 2xDIMM sockets, which I assume are both already occupied.

Can anybody recommend the type of memory I shall consider of buying?

Oh and it'll scan your PC and tell you if you have any slots free too and which memory is compatible with your PC.

I've said before that the Crucial Scanner isn't always right.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro with the maximum RAM supported by the combination of motherboard and Processor.

The Crucial Scan recommended I should take out both banks of RAM and replace with their RAM with half the capacity 'this will increase your memory' it said. Well it wouldn't and I didn't.

It doesn't give me much confidence in Crucial or their Scanner :(

My make and model is a HP Pavilion I had a reply from crucial saying they recommend the following PC2100 (266MHz) DDR DIMM modules: Density - Part Number ¿ Timing

128MB - CT1664Z265 ¿ CL=2.5
256MB - CT3264Z265 - CL=2.5
512MB - CT6464Z265 - CL=2.5
1GB - CT12864Z265 - CL=2.5

So you'll want the CT6464Z265. If it's wrong for any reason and i very much doubt it will be Crucial will refund you.
