I have a pair of 1 Gb memory modules that were ordered by mistake and I can't return them.  Is there a source to determine what computers will take this memory? <the reverse of>

    If you let me know what type they are I can give it a shot and let you know what I come up with.
    DDR or DDR2:
    Number of Pins:
    If you have a PCxxx or PC2xxx number, that is also very helpful.

    Use the Memory Tabs to determine whats in another system already, but depending on the type, best thing to do is to gauge the age of the computers, and take a stab....

    Are you using anything in the environment like ECM, or LANDesk?

    I used kingston's memory configurator on my IBM T43.  It came back with a set of modules that turned out to be completely wrong...2 modules that clearly are for a desktop, not a it's not for something native to my computing environment.

    If this is kingston ram, you can search the part number and then check the compatibility tab on the result page. This will tell you which motherboards are compatible.
