memory upgrade
 
Hello,

I want to buy additional memory for my computer.
I would like to know how do I find the vendor/frequency etc of my currently installed ram module.
lshal gives a lot of output. What should I look for? Is there another way?

Thank you in advance.

I tried that on mine to but didn't post it because it may not help
much. This is the only thing that I see that may help with the
frequency of the memory:


*-cpu
description: CPU
product: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2500+
vendor: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD]
physical id: 4
bus info: cpu@0
version: 6.10.0
slot: Socket A
size: 1833MHz
capacity: 3GHz
width: 32 bits
*clock: 166MHz*
capabilities: fpu fpu_exception wp vme de pse tsc msr pae mce
cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr sse syscall mmxext
3dnowext 3dnow ts



Since it says the clock is 166MHz then the memory should be the same.
Only thing is, my memory has to be 333MHz not 166Mhz. Basically,
depending on a few things, that info may not help much unless he has a
idea what it takes.


My advice, find out the model of the computer if it is factory built or
the model of the mobo if it is custom built, then go to crucial.com or
something and look it up that way. Once you get the info, you can look
it up at whatever site you choose.


Also, if you have windoze on the rig, some memory sites can look it up
for you too. I'm not sure how they do that tho. I guess they can scan
something on the mobo. I dunno. No windoze here.


Hope that helps.

Dale

Thats the cpu - try looking at the existing memory which is what he
wants to know.
