What is matching RAM?

History

I have the 512MB RAM (original) and added an extra 1GB on the second slot. I get problems once in a while with computer freezing specially when running apps that require lots of memory or running multiple apps.

I left the 1GB only and I do not get these problems. Does this have to do with this being not matched memory? Could you please explain what this means or how it works.

I would like to get another 1GB to have the max 2GB installed but I would like to know how to buy a matching one or at least make sure it will work

thanks

Jose

RAM Upgrade / 1 GB / PC2-5300 / Low Profile / 200 pin, 667 MHz — 1 available at 14.95 each.

Thanks a lot. So the "matching" means having modules of the same size only?

josecelaya,

You just need to match the type up but the speed can be up to 800MHZ

Nick,
