Hi all, new member here with a Computer Hardware problem. Well, this is a problem that I experienced a while ago to boost my computer gaming performance. I run on a very slow computer:
Originally Sony Vaio then replaced with 'Giga Computer' tower. Shows 'America Megatrends' at the start of computer.
24 gig Hard Drive
So I ordered a 512MB stick of ram for $60.00 off Outpost.com. It promptly arrived a week later and I took off the old 128MB ram off my comp and put kmy 512 one in that slot. I noticed it did not fit well. So I tried to force it in (stupid, i know) then I turned on my comp and it repeatedly made a beeping noice and my monitor was pitch black. So after trying numerous ways to put it on my comp and failing, I gave up and put my 128 back in. Then I experienced the same problem. I honestly thought that my motherboard had fried or something. But after trying hard, my computer finally worked. I promptly then returned the ram for a full refund.
So my computer continues to run slowly on games. Then I searched on google (bout weeks after the incident) on how I can find the right stick of ram next time. Then came across this forum and it seemed real proffessional and hopefully helpful. I want to know what type of Ram can be used on my comp because I want to order another 512MB ASAP but I also want to be cautious so that I don't almost destroy my computer.
I've looked for ram online and foundthis
site has a system that can instantly track down which ram is right for my comp. Relieved right? Well I tried it and it did not have my computer brand! Now might I remind you, this is a customized computer. So basically I had a Sony Vaio which I bought like 4 years ago then replaced my old tower with a new one.
So then again, luck is not on my side at all. So I come for some desperatly needed advice on which Ram I need for my specific comp.
