I have got a 3 Year old dell inspiron 510m with 512 ddr ram on two chips.
I am now thinking of upgrading to at least 1 gig. But I don’t want to end up with an aweful lot of problems. So I thought I’d ask for advice on what I have to look for before buying new ram.
Some questions that I have thought of so far:
What is the difference between DDR1 and DDR2? Will 2 work on my 1 computer?
Is ther a max amount of ram that my PC can cope with?
What do all the numbers mean? : SAMSUNG 2GB PC3200 DDR 400Mhz RAM 1 GB 2X 1GB DIMM
as in what does the PC3200 mean? What do I have to look out for here?
Is the Mhz important? If so why?
What does the DIMM mean?
Anything else that I should look out for?
