I have exactly the same pc and bought 512MB of memory some time ago. I just bought 1GB of PC2700 memory recently but can't get it to work the pc just boots/reboots to safe mode.

Will my PC take HD memory as that's what I've bought?

Your question is quite confusing. But anyway,check if your motherboard can still support your new memory or if it is compatible with your board.

PC2700 is DDR333.

It appears you need DDR266, which is PC2100.

Download and install PC Wizard 2008

In the hardware section it will tell you exactly what kind of memory you have in your machine and it will also tell you the maximum amount supported.

there are different sizes of the memory.
so that you are using the high density memory , replace the 1 gb memoy from the computer.
see the size of the 512 mb memory.

after that you can buy a new memory card,
you may contact the computer vender to the type of the ram.
your old ram is ddr1 and the another ram is ddr2 .
so there is also the problem.
your new ram is not companrable with the old ram.
so please contact the computer vender for the correct ram.

today there are different sizes of ram in the market so before buying the ram first of all see the size and the type of the ram.
you can upgrade the ram only for which ram , your motherboard support.
check the motherboard compatibility with the ram and than put.

your motherboard is not compatible with the new ram so you can change the ram.you can take the help from the computer vender to the correct ram
