Hello all.

Can anyone please help? i have been trying to find out this info for days and i only want to upgrade my memory. I have a HP media centre m1261.uk pc. I know that the memory installed and the memory i need should be

ddr 400 pc3200 non ecc. This is what crucial.com recommend but it doesn't say if it is High ir Low Density. CT540837 DDR PC3200 • CL=3 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR400 • 2.6V • 128Meg x 64

or does it to the trained eye because i just don't have a clue.

I have tried to get the info from HP Technical department but one person tells me one thing and someone else tells me something else which has left me unsure.

Thanks.

I would shop around for memory sticks according to the model numbers by the memory stick manufacturers website selectors


for example



if corsair says its model=ABC-123 512mb sticks are approved for your board


then go to the retailers website and look for Corsair DDR400 ram / then look at the model number for the match ABC-123


BTW: I am pretty sure any sticks 512mb or higher are going to be high density or else they coudnt get that many chips on a stick



then you go to an etailer like this one

and shop by model number

It looks like your system has Intel chipsets, which are likely to require low density. I think 1 GB low density is 128x64. I think low density can be used in boards that take high density, so I would buy low density just to be safe.
