Before going off to buy new ram, go to this site and check what they recommend for your computer : http://www.4allmemory.com/

RAM is something pretty easy to install inside a computer and you won't really have to troubleshoot it, it work and it doesn't (except if you have faulty ram of course).

If it's not using DDR2 memory, you're often better off with a new computer, old ram is pricey. If it's DDR2, even a modern stick should work and be downgraded to what the motherboard can take. (I'm sure some oem bios won't let you however). Your best bet is to find what you are using right now and buy a matching stick i.e. same speed so that you can use your old with the new one. Mix and match on different speed isn't the best scenario for ram.
