    maybe on the emachines website it might tell you the motherboard in the system but it is most likely a special made one for emachines systems. in your manual it will say which is teh most amount of ram it can support.

    i recomend you buy 256mb pc133 as usually pc133 is cheaper than pc100, it was when i bought it for my old computer.

    open the case and see if there is any writing on the board. Look for part numbers or model numbers. Use google.com to search for the best price on memory.

    how many memory slots does the board have? i think if it has two you will need to buy two 128mb sticks rather than 1 256mb stick.

    on old computers usually can only have half the maximum amount of ram in each slot. it happened to me on my old computer. i also couldnt use a 128 and a 256 because my maximum was\is 256mb.

    my new computer takes like 3gb or something
