When be***** up an old PC - an old Compaq XP system which I plan to give my dad this Christmas (since I've got the custom quad core XP and vista laptop). Is there any way to find out how much RAM it'll hold and what type? I've got the case open tonight and pulled out the current 128 MB stick and cleaned the guts out but there's no sticker on it saying what kind of RAM it is (such as PC2 5300, 240 pin). I'd like to load it up before I give it to him but I've been told sometimes they won't work with too much RAM.
NotANumber had a website that he posted once a while ago which allowed you to type in the model number of your PC and find out this info. It appears I've lost that bookmark, did anyone else happen to keep it?
