Your machine is a little on the old side and can only hold a maximum of 256mb. That is 128mb chip per slot. Crucial does not sell it so your best bet would be an ebay search. you do not have to flash your bios to use the max ram, but you should check to see if there are other reasons to do so.

Try adding more RAM
Adding more ram will boot applications / games quicker
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system


You should always ask or get working pairs in a ram upgrade some ram modules wont work together even if they are of the same brand and type ie: DDR ,DDR 3

Checking Amount of RAM

Click on "My Computer" and select "Properties" using right-click in the Explorer window.
This will open "Systems Properties."

Click on the "General" tab.
Here you can view the physical memory installed on your computer.

The amount indicated is the total RAM installed on your computer.
RAM is usually 32 MB, 64 MB or 128 MB in older PC versions.

Newer PCs are usually equipped with 256 MB, 512 MB or even higher RAM.
Check the usage.

To know the currently used RAM (based on programs you are running), open the taskbar or press "Ctrl + Alt + Del" to open a pop-up window. Click on "Task Manager."

Click the "Performance" tab.
You can view the amount of memory currently used by each program running on your PC.

How can I upgrade my etower to an adequate gaming cpu?


Sorry, but the specs for the PC noted just won't support today's media rich, robust internet, and not to mentions games. Any hardware upgrades will eventually lead to a new system.

Wont to upgrade graphic card my p.c has 2gig max ram in it wonts should i upgrade to to preform its best cheers mike


Depends on what kind of hardware you have
-Memory- 2 gb ram is "ok" if you use windows XP but if you have Vista or Windows 7 you should have a minimum of 4gb ram.
-Processor- if you have a Dual core processor you are ok, if you have a p4 or p3 you dont want to waste money on a new graphics card because it will not help you get better games, your processor and memory will slow you down instead.
So my advice is, if you have a OK computer, go ahead with buying a new graphics card if you computer is old and slow, DONT buy a new card! put your money on +2gb ram instead (cheap,and gives you more benefits) or maybe buy an "upgrade package" with new motherboard-memory-processor.

I have hopelessly slow windows xp, Dell Dimension 2400, 2.52GHz, 384 MB of RAM [2002, owned since 2004] Have deleted all invisible startups, run a clean virus scan, run cleanup/cleandisk, disk...


Hi,

It makes no wonder that the machines slow with only having 384MB of RAM installed.

If you were to max out the memory capacity of the machine which i suspect is DDR SDRAM and probably has a maximum of 2GB as this would make the machine much faster that what it is now.

384MB of RAM is just not good enough to run XP properly these days.

If the machine is still in good working order (apart from it being slow) then you could upgrade the RAM.


Regards.

I incerased the ram from 128 to 256 but it still


Dude!

It seems that video card on the computer is consuming the rest of 64 MB memory.

Get into the CMOS of the computer and reduce the video card memory.

Hope, it helps.

I have 256 MB RAM which is slow, can i upgrade it to 512 MB RAM


Depends completely on what motherboard the computer has and what it supports, I could check on it if you have and brand and model of the computer, or from the motherboard.

Sure the prosessor speed doesn't affect the memory amount possible don't worry about that, just need to find out how much is supported and at what speed etc.

Thanks,
Ekse

Etower 633id runs very slow. Only has 64MB of RAM.


Normally upgrading bios does not require flashing the bios. But in order to find out the max amount you can upgrade too requires some info off the motherboard. You need to get the model number off the board to look up the info
