Solved!

p-7-1226s memory upgrade - 64 bit

have only 2 memory slots, one with 2GB DIMM MICRON 1333 MHz and the other slot has 4GB DIMM RAMAXEL 133GHz.  To increase, the 2GB slot to 4GB is it necessary to get the same brand RAMAXEL (assuming this is the brand name, like Kingston, yes)??  thanks, Charlotte

Solved!

p-7-1226s memory upgrade - 64 bit

From the specs of your computer;

 

Single channel memory architecture

Two 240-pin DDR3 DIMM sockets

Supports DDR3 DIMMs

PC3 8500 (1066 MHz)

PC3 10600 (1333 MHz)

Non-ECC memory only, unbuffered

Supports 1 GB, 2 GB, and 4 GB DIMMs 

Supports up to 8 GB on 64-bit systems

 

Based on this information, almost any 4GB DDR3 1333MHz DIMM would work. There is no need to purchase the same exact brand as already installed.

 

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
