Well, you need to know two things.Does your operating system support more than 512 MB? Unless you're running Windows 98 this probably isn't an issue. 2000 and XP both support at least 1 GB.Does your hardware support more than 512 MB? Most motherboards can support at least 2 or 3 GB, but it also depends what you've already got installed - is there an empty slot, or will you need to completely replace what's already there?Your best bet, particularly if you're not very tech-savvy, may be to raise these questions with the computer manufacturer. They'll also know specifically what RAM is compatible with your system.
