Yup, it should work. It's DDR333 which is PC2700, the same as the one you already have.

There is a notch in the contacts of the memory that will line up with the bump in the memory slot. It will only install one way.

Here's an example:

Where there is two notches in the picture there is only one on this, the notch is not in the center.

That's fine. The pic was just an example of what it looks like. Just line up the one notch on yours with the bump or key in the slot and you should be good to go.

It probably looks more like this:

As above.

But it's keyed and you cannot insert the module the wrong way.

It'll either slot right in or it won't slot in at all.

Either the module is corrupt or your PC can't take anymore RAM. The module is probably corrupt, but we need to know the exact error to find out.

Go to start menu, right click on Computer and go to properties, then go to advanced system settings, then startup and recovery settings, then uncheck the box that says "automatically restart", then shutdown and try to re-create the problem.
