    Please press the green button, and select your manual (or drivers)

    Sorry, it seems you must do this twice, once here, then when you get to Asus support, click it again. This button uses JavaScript (which is enabled by default on most browsers)

    thats the problem i used internet explorer and it downloaded but never would show the memory type no matter what i pushed. i have never had a problem with java before.

    So you got to your drivers page?

    There should have been an area to download your Manual (in Adobe PDF Format usually)
    Inside the Manual, should tell you what Ram (memory) types can go into your system.

    I usually use the above button just for drivers support, so that's why it's slightly different.
    Also I updated the Java link to the correct one.

    It says DDR 400MHz PC3200 256Meg 2.7Volts
    If the manual states it supports this (ie 400MHz 2.7V) then yes (although some Ram card manufactures don't work with some computers)

    Anyway, instead of 256Meg, maybe purchase 512 Meg (that way you can add another new 512Meg stick at a later stage)

    Maybe I should've said, just go for the 512Meg Throw the 256Megs away - Not not really.
    Just go with the 512
