Can I have in total 2 gigs of PC3200 ram on Compaq dx5150 ?

Memory upgrades from Crucial.com - Determine My Memory Needs

There are 4 slots for ram memory on my computer.
I have 2 (512 mbs.) of ram on 2 different slot at the moment.

I wish to just get 1 gig ram put it on the 3rd slot and leave the last slot empty.


Will that work for a total of 2 gigs. ram for my p.c.?

Can't afford to buy more memory.

Thanks.

you can do what you want but you will have better performance if ram is in pairs.

Mixing RAM brands/specs can also cause problems. My best suggestion would be to save your money until you can get a matched pair of 2X1GB sticks.
