you may have to put the larger capacity stick in the first slot (may be labelled bank 0 or bank 1)
no it doesn't make a difference you can have 768 mb total without having any problems.
It will either work or not. If it is damaged it shouldn't hurt your machine.
Ok, well it's not killer RAM... but I have an old stick of RAM I got from a friend. It's completely compatable with my computer, but it's old. So my question is, if a stick of RAM is damaged in some way, is it possible for it to damage my computer? Is there any risk of that sort? Another question, it has a diffrent amount of memory than the stick in my computer. My friend says it didn't work with his 512 stick. (Thus why he gave it to me) I have 256MB. Does a diffrence in memory amount matter? Is there anything special I have to do to get it to work?
