    OP test your brothers computer first in above link, as you only have 2 slots you have to determine the max it can take/use fully
    And what OS is installed at the moment?

    The n1996 isn't a motherboard model as such. It's just basically legal for sale etc.

    I'd stick with the same spec for reassurance then. Here

    ebay item: 180667001994 2*512mb £7.75ish delivered, used. infineon
    ebay item: 180665372355 2*512mb £8 delivered, used. hynix

    Will be fine with 1GB

    which is best bud?
    Edited by: "Dannysubaru" 5th Jun 2011

    I'd probably go with infineon - either will do the job though

    if it can take a 2gb stick I have a Kingston module for sale, let me know if interested
