Of course, more RAM is a must. Just sitting at idle with all the background utilities eats the RAM completely. Basically everything runs off the page file.
What I've seen so far leads me to believe that only IBM SODIMM PC100 chips wil be compatible with the RAM slots. Is this true, or can I pick up some generic laptp SODIMMs from the local laptop store? I need at least one 256MB stick, though I'd like to get a second and bump it right to its 512MB limit eventually.
Both a friend of mine and I have laptops from the same time period with similar specs. Mine being Clevo, and his being IBM, both using PC133 SODIMMs.
I would check the RAM itself the next time you get a chance because I don't think it's PC100 at all.
If you look at the actual chips on the RAM and they have anything that looks like:
It's PC133 SDRAM.
