im trying to buy RAM for my computer but, how is it that i find what type of RAM my computer uses. Because i bought a certain type of RAM and the slot in the middle on the bottom of the chip did not line up. So how can i determine it?

Use something like Everest or PC wizard

Or open the case take it out and read the label

Take the existing one out.
On the little sticker is written what sort it is as well as the quantity.

Like:

PC3200 or DDR400
PC2-4200 or DDR2533

Or such.
Thats what kind you need to get.
