You can buy Memory from newegg for example http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=DDR+SDRAM&x=0&y=0

you mentioned Dell Dimension 2400 as your pc. if this is your computer the type of ram you can install is DDR SDRAM and the maximum speed of the memory supported by this pc is 333MHz
So look for DDR SDRAM 333MHZ Here is one example give this one a try http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820144202


also I would suggest you look into my Speed up guide to get your pc working better
currently this guide has 3 pages and you can read the first page here
http://www.bukisa.com/articles/13139_slow-computer-follow-this-how-to-series-to-clean-and-speed-it-up

in the end of the page you will find the link to the 2nd page ones you are done with one page of instructions.

Thanks, let me know if you require anything else.

My system says, (RAM) radon access memory low cpu intel (r) pentium 4 cpu, version 2.80 ghz. RAM 256 mb. What can I do to resolve this problem. Dell 4700 dimension


Windows XP requires a "bare-minimum" of 128MB of RAM, works "OK" with your 256MB of RAM, if you don't open too many programs at the same time, and if you close/re-open Internet Explorer about once an hour of usage.

But, Windows XP would be _much_ "happier" if you added 256MB or 512MB of RAM, because it is telling you ("available random access memory is low") that it is using all the RAM.

Add more RAM -- your computer will run much better.

Adding RAM will make it faster, the hard drive size has no importance on speed. Try finding a second hand Athlon XP processor , something below 2000+ rating - that will really speed it up.

I have an Acer am5100-u5301a. Is there a bios upgrade?


If the specs read that you can operate with 4GB of RAM, then I believe the AMD690g chipset is not the culprit.

The RAM that you're adding may be defective, or incompatible with the existing RAM.

Another possibility could be a bad RAM socket.

I also doubt you would get a black screen due to adding more RAM than the system is capable of handling, it would still start, but would not utilize the additional RAM.

Black screen usually means bad RAM or incompatible RAM or bad socket

I want to upgrade my lenovo laptop ram memory from 1gb to 2gb by adding one more stick. i currently have ddr2 PC2-5300(333MHz) latency 5 5 5 15 2T RAM my friends advised me that BLUE SCREEN ERROR occurs...


The rule of thumb with RAM is to always buy matching pairs. So instead of buying one new stick of 1gb its a better idea to buy two of the same kind and replace the one that is currently in there.

Before you even think about doing this, head over to lenovo's website and make sure that the computer is compatible with 2gb(from the speed of the ram im assuming that it will, I don't know of many DDR2 computers that cant have 2gb.) you may also be able to get ram that is faster if it is compatible, The website will have all this info.

Add remove software window comes up blank


I have seen this happen many times.  You just have to wait (sometimes a very long time) before it populates itself.  Adding more RAM to your computer will also speed this up.  Just let it sit there and load for a while.

Adding RAM


before you buy this memory stick (ram) you should have check the specifications of this ram memory, they should be the same specs, the cast latency might be different and with different brand. how about if you remove all this ram memory and use only this KVR133X64C3/256, if this works then do not install the other 2
