I have a Packard Bell Easynote M5 260DR ..

Currently running 256 ram which I want to upgrade I have checked and there are two slots .

Found the specs for RAM here ..

But am fairly unsure where to start to ensure  get exactly the correct ram locally
I had a look on pricespy but am not sure what I'm looking for ..

I have tried one already but the keyhole ? ..was like a few millimeters out of lining up correctly

Sorry for the basic info any help would be greatfull and links aslo welcome to local suppliers with the
correct product

was it a sodimm you tried? was it the right way around? DSE usually provide really good service in helping select notebook ram.

You could have gotten DDR2 by mistake instead of just DDR (or the other way around), if it's just off then that's what I think has happened.
