Hello,
\015\012
\015\012Located here is the actual specifications of your W3052.

\015\012
\015\012The DDR means "double data rate", SDRAM is "synchronous dynamic random access memory" and DIMM is for "dual inline memory module". These are the way manufacturers describe the specific speed, type, and packaging of the memory. You need to get the correct combination for your computer in order for it to function properly. The PC2100 is NOT correct, at the very least it will slow your computer down, and possibly will not work at all. You should use PC2700.
\015\012
\015\012If you wish to add another 512MB taking your computer to 1GB total, then you only need 1 module, a 512MB, like the one that came in the computer. Do not purchase a 1GB module expecting it to work properly with the one already there. It probably won't. If you want to max out your computer's memory taking it to 2GB, then you will need to purchase 2 each 1GB modules, and remove the existing 512MB module.
\015\012
\015\012When you go to the computer store, you ask for either "one five-hundred-twelve megabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory module" or "two one-gigabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory modules".
\015\012
\015\012The part numbers from, Kingston, one of the major add-on memory makers are shown here:
\015\012
\015\012512MB = KVR333X64C25/512
\015\0121GB = KVR333X64C25/1G
From the e-machine website (Linkbelow):\015\012You computer came with:\015\012 512MB DDR (1 × 512MB) SDRAM (PC2700).\015\012
\015\012You may uupgrade to 2GB max , so you ned two-1GB strips of SDRAM (PC2700)\015\012Do a purchase search(Google or Yahoo for example) for the PC 2700 and see all the selection that is available. If I were you ,as you machine is somewhat old? I would buy based upon price. \015\012   After opening the left side of the (looking at the front) with the power supply switch off or the cord unpluugged, yu will see two slots for Ram .One is presently occupied. Their are two clips that one must push down on at each end which lifts the ram module up out of the slot. Push the new one down into the slot untill the clips snap back into place. The RAM fits only one way.  \015\012  If you need further asistance , please ask. You might want to open the side of your computer first to confirm what I have said before ordering the new RAM.\015\012512MB DDR (1 × 512MB) SDRAM (PC2700)
