So I bought a new machine with 2GB DDR2 last month, just wondering if I'll have any problems putting in an extra 2GB DDR2?

I actually went to crucial.com where that site scanned my system & told me which memory to buy! So I knew I bought the exact same memory I'd already got Thought perhaps the Linux kernel couldn't accept anything more than 2GB?
As you say, I'll have to try it to find out

If that makes sense. its not Linux, its your chip set/bios.
