Yes, once you add the new RAM and turn on the computer it should recognise it. As for getting the same brand, if you're happy with it then do it.
thanks for ur help LadyLisa. :D
You're welcome and be careful putting it in, if you push too hard you could damage it.
Wow $89.00 for 256 sdram module, kind of high. Check out or, I beleive the price for that module is around $34.00 there.:cool:
He said $89 Australian, which would be around $45US
and our ram is soooo cheap here.........256meg strip is around £45
thats $90 australian and about $70 US.............this is rip-off britain for ya.:mad:

you ever go to any of those computer shows they have in Trafford Park? You can get it a lot cheaper at a place like that.
