August of 2013, a friend at church gave me this Compaq Presario 2004 desktop computer. He and his wife have moved to Minnesota and I have lost contact so cannot ask them. It only came with 256 Mb and the other slot is empty. A friend in Austrailia (I am in Atlanta, Georgia USA); also has an XP computer desktop but not the same brand. He shipped me 2 x 1 Gig and 2 x 2 Gig memory cards this past Wednesday. Will take 10-12 days to get to me. Do the memory cards have to be specific for my computer or will others work? Can I only put just 256 Mb more in the other slot? I am 64 (almost 65) and have never been inside a computer tower. A friend in my building will put the memory in for me. I am confused on how much Mb is 1 Gig and how much is 2? Here is the scan results for my computer: Crucial USA - scan results
Alright, I have a HP G70 120 EA laptop, I use Photoshop on it a lot, but a times the laptop struggles to do what I`m doing in Photoshop, so what I`d like to know and do, is get the best or maximum RAM for my laptop in order for it not to heat up so much.
I also know that having an SSD would help, but I`m on a small budget.
Any help or info would be great,
Here is my Scan: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/scanview/52960AAB31D926C3
HP's website states that I need to use the same size RAM in each slot, however this desktop came pre-installed with 9GB RAM: 4X2GB and 1X1GB. I would like to add at least 4GB, but preferably the full 16GB the OS (Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit) allows. What is the best way to configure this? If I understand correctly, I shouldn't just add an 8GB stick to the open slot? Would I be able to take out the 1GB module and add 2 4GB modules? Or do I have to buy 4X4GB modules so that they're all the same size? Obviously, I don't want to spend more money than I have to, but I want to do it correctly. Please advise.
I need to know how much memory I can add to the exsiting 4 GB in my HP Pavilion g6-1209sa laptop (product ID A5G99EA#ABU).

I was advised in HP community forum that the G6 service manual specifies a maximum capacity of 6GB of my laptop model, so only 2 GB to add.

However, your scanner says I can add another 4 GB (8 GB total).
Would you please advise me whether I should trust your scanner results or the offical (generic) G6 service manual?
Thanks for help!
It doesn't look like the precision T7910 has been tested with Crucial memory yet. Any ETA on that? Suggestions on what I could buy now? Looking to drop 768 GB in it.
