it seems you have a 128MB 133MHZ SDRAM  DIMM module, but to find out which module fits your device for upgrade you better look for vendor's specifications.

i mean, you should see your device/motherboard manufacturer's specs for detals, because it could have to be some more specific than simple PC133 memory module, say, with ECC correction, or registered. But this is rather old memory and should not be any expensive, so you can just give it a try.

it seems that the module vendor is Micron (as it was assembled in USA and MM3240 looks like Micron name).

I agree. It looks like 128MB PC-133.

It's getting hard to find those. I found some new 512MB sticks at Office Depot, but they were almost as much as the DDR (about $50 USD)

But you really need to check the specs (as noted by sunny-s), to see what size your mobo will handle. You might be limited to 256MB per slot.
Then the real fun starts. Those are almost limited to finding used sticks, somewhere.

forgot:
if you really want to know the specs on that memory, install CPU-Z, and click the Memory tab.
