    Hi mdmsweetm,

    If you’re still interested in installing the Samsung RAM, make sure that it is either DDR PC2100 (non-ECC) or DDR PC2700 (non-ECC). For more information, see

    PS: Windows Vista will not run very well with the kind of RAM that your current computer requires.

    I hope this information helps.


    Thanks for the info. I went ahead and did it and it worked. I also got to download windows vista and so far I am happy with it. Thanx again! Happy Holidays!
