buying additional RAM

Hello Experts

I currently have 2.0 GB DDR2 RAM installed on my PC. I want to buy some additional RAM for my own and few other PC. I need to know the exact configuration for the RAM I would need to buy.

I am unable to find the exact name on the RAM's of my PC however Hynix RAMs are on other PCs.

All the info I can find are

HYS64t128020 HU.3.7-B

1 GB 2RX8 PC2 - 4200V - 444 -12 - E0

Please can someone advise what exact configuration would I need to buy them?

Thanks
S

Your best bet is to go to a site such as crucial (www.crucial.com) or Kingston (www.kingston.com) and run their memory configurator.  This should give you your memory options based either on OEM system (HP, Dell, etc) or your motherboard.  

You can alo just pull the RAM and get the specs from it.  If they are complete enough you could just go to one of these vendor's web sites and purchase or then run the memory configurator and compare what they say you need with what's actually in the computer.  Brand really isn't the issue here so much as specs.

Just reread the question and it appears that you have already pulled the RAM and got the specs... so just go to a RAM vendor's web site and either just buy what matches or run the configurator which may give you a more specific read on what to buy.

Glad I could help.  All major RAM vendors have memory config programs that you either can run from their web site or can download and run from your local PC.  I usually do check what they say against what's actually there...spec-wise... just because I want to make sure I am getting the right stuff... almost never find them to be wrong.
