I'm going to just take a guess

In reply to: How To buy Ram

I looked your model up at Crucial but that exact # doesn't show. It does show the 5093 which isn't going to be monumentally different. It requires 2.5v DDRAM as your example shows but offers PC2700 and not PC 2100. If it was me, I'd buy the Crucial brand for a similar model and stick with the faster RAM though either might work.
