I want to put more ram on my PC & I don't know where I can found out
how much it can take.
I tried crucial.com/uk but everytime I try to run the scan, my PC gets
the blue screen.

Here's my PC: 'ALDI - Thursday Special Buys 27th November 2008'
(http://www.aldi.co.uk/uk/html/offers/58_7963.htm)

According to the site you listed the OS pre-installed on your pc is
32bit not 64bit so have you installed the x64 version (no upgrade path
from 32bit to 64bit)? If not then 4gb is it for you no matter how much
the MB will take. If you have installed the x64 version then you need to
know what MB you have. The web site you referenced does not list the MB
but you should be able to find out. It should say on the MB itself or in
the literature that came with your pc.

I put the 64-bit OS of Vista on instead. And nowhere in the manual does
it say about the motherboard, ram or anything similar.

I would suggest looking on the MB itself, I'm reasonably certain that it
will be written there, All of mine are.

I found out my motherboard. It's a MS-7502 (MSI OEM).
I searched crucial.com/uk/ and all they have is MS-7052 (MSI OEM)
So I don't know how much my PC can take.

Now I've found out the motherboard, can anybody help?

Motherboard manual:
'www.medionsupport.com/files/8828/manual/'
(http://www.medionsupport.com/files/8...al/)*7502*.pdf

It looks like 8gb max according to the manual but check it out

It looks as if it will handle at least 8gigs, but if you have a 32-bit
system, only buy 4.

Here is what I use (same memory that you want). I am very pleased with
price and performance. Overclocks easily should you decide to go that
route.

'OCZ SLI-Ready Dual Channel 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory (2x2048MB)
OCZ2N800SR4GK at TigerDirect.com'

Thank you.
Anywhere that would sell this in the UK? My parents aren't too keen on
buying from America. .
I'm only 15 so I can't buy it myself.

UK occasionally .
