Thanks for the info, after the sacn it shows the following info.
Maximum Memory Capacity: 3072MB
Currently Installed Memory: 1GB
Available Memory Slots: 0
Number of Banks: 3
Dual Channel Support: No
CPU Manufacturer: GenuineIntel
CPU Family: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.60GHz Model 1, Stepping 2
CPU Speed: 1594 MHz
Then this info.
Currently installed memory:
256MBSDRAM, PC133 256MBSDRAM, PC133 512MBSDRAM, PC133
Each memory slot can hold SDRAM, PC133 with a maximum of 512MB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
so if it say that i can go up to 3 GB, how do i do that if i cannot exceed 512 per slot, i'm confused.

Try putting the make and model of your computer into the Crucial memory configurator and see what results you get, sometimes you'll get a clearer picture that way.
If it's a self built machine, then use the make and model of the motherboard.
Use the same link that speedster gave you, just put in the info instead of using the "scan my system" option.
