    Check my post, I clicked the wrong link there are 2 models of your computer and the one is amd the other is yours.

    You can use ddr2 but still only 4gb supported.

    As for the site going slow were having server problems should be fixed soon.

    From what I can see, you can use any DDR2 266 RAM, be it 2x2GB or 4x1GB. I do have one question, what OS are you running? If it's anything 32-bit you won't be able to utilize ALL 4GB of RAM..
