If you bought a computer, printer, DVD player, MP3 player or other electronic device between 1998 and 2002, you likely have some money coming.

The state’s attorney general is encouraging Hawaii residents to file their claims in the $310 million DRAM settlement.

The class-action settlement is for claims of price fixing involving a dozen manufacturers of DRAM or dynamic random access memory chips.

Filing a claim can be done online, usually in less than five minutes. No documentation is required to file a claim.

The minimum payment is expected to be $10, but the actual amount could be more depending on the total number of claims filed.
