Compatibility Question


Recommended Posts

I am trying to upgrade the memory in my computer. I have a Compaq Presario 5BW160. I printed out an information sheet regarding my computer. It says it can have 512MB of memory. I went to Fry's electronics and told the guy I was looking for memory. I showed him the sheet, told him I wanted the most memory possible, and he checked his stock. He sold me a memory (Model VS512MB100), but when I got home it didn't work. I checked the compatibility chart and it says my computer needs model #CMSS256MB-100. Will the memory I bought work on my computer or do I need to take another trip all the way back to Fry's to get the right one? Also, are there any 512MB sticks that will work in this computer?
