Default What kind of RAM?

Hey guys, my parents are looking into buying some ram, around 128MB why? ask them, but anyway would a 128MB module work in a comp of this caliber?:

Windows 98SE
currently 40 MB RAM
Pentium 166MHz

I looked at the mobo and it looks like it would house a dimm module. but i dont know for sure

We would need more information about the motherboard. But if the motherboard supports it then yes. Win98 and ME can recognize/support up to 256MBs per DIMM mod.

there are about 5000 models of aptiva dood, get a program called AIDA32 (free download, just search on google) and it will tell you your mobo model
