Hey, I have a bit of a silly question.

I am going to buy some more RAM for someone I know and I opened up their PC to check what type of RAM I needed to get. The RAM says Hynix 256MB 1Rx16 PC2-4200U-444-12 on the sticker.

What type of RAM is this so i know what to buy?
 
For any ram you are considering, do your own homework.
Go to the ram vendor's web site, and access their configurator.
Corsair, Kingston, Patriot, OCZ and others have them.
Their compatibility list is more current than the motherboard vendor's QVL lists which rarely get updated.
Enter your mobo or PC, and get a list of compatible ram sticks.

Here are a few links:

CPU-Z will also tell you what is installed and other info.
