Default Need RAM upgrade on older Gateway machine

It's been forever since I've posted a thread like this

Anyways, I need to upgrade the RAM on an old Gateway machine to whatever is the maximum it can support. I have done some searching on,, and just google searching but I can't find the right machine specs or memory type.

The model number is MFATXPNT MDW 500S.
The serial number is 0032217662.

I have not had a chance to view this machine in person to see what it has installed. It is also not connected to the internet so the person I am trying to help could not visit to just run a simple system scan.

If any of you find anything specific on the type of RAM and max it supports, let me know!


If I was helpful, please click the icon on the left hand side of this message that looks like a check mark Thanks!
