If the heading is correct on your post, Intel D845GBV motherboard, you have 2 memory slots that can hold up to 1GB in each. A 512MB will work with the 128MB. You need DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 modules for that board.

You can also increase the hard drive. The amount of RAM has no bearing on the hard drive size. I would suggest a 200GB to 250 GB drive. You need to make sure what interface (either SATA or IDE) that the motherboard has for the hard drive. I have not checked into the specs.

    After checking the specs, your motherboard only has IDE interface connectors so you need to make sure you purchase an IDE drive.



    BTW, here is a link for everything you will ever want to know about that board.

the maximum amount of RAM for that pc is 1GB so upgrading isn't possible if you wanted to upgrade the speed of the RAM the maximum speed is 333 MHz which is not very fast so i would assume that's what the current RAMs speed is.

I have an Intel 845 Gvsr Motherboard,with 512 mb 266 Mhz RAM I want to upgrade the system to 320GB, with 2 Gb RAM, and also I want to make it HD Compatible is it possible, and is it worth taking a risk. ...


Upgrading HDD is no risk for your PC. The RAM memory instead should cause a problem if it's not compatible. The problem that can appear is simple: your computer won't start until you take out the ram memory. Your type of motherboard supports:Max 2Gb of RAM (DDR SDRAM)
Cheers.

How can i increase my ram in intel desktop board 815


Hey,

Ram can not be increased as it is a hardware component in the computer, you can install more ram or upgrade the current ram modules that are inside the computer.

I hav a nvidia 8400gs graphics card how can i increase its size 1. by sharing it with hard disk 2.by sharing it with ram 3.what are the effects of this procedure?


upgrading your video card. There are probably only two basic reasons to upgrade a video card: 1. Your current card has poor performance.or You just "want" faster video performance.
If you think your current video card is performing poorly, there are a couple of things you should do prior to upgrading your video card. The first thing your should do is give your computer a "tune-up". This involves things like running Defrag, Scandisk, virus checkers etc. (for further explanation of tune-up procedures, .
Once you are certain that your computer is performing properly, and your computer is still experiencing slowdowns in video intensive programs, like games or graphic design programs, then the second thing you may need to do is upgrade your computer's main system memory. Inadequate amounts of system RAM will choke your computer's performance. That's why I recommend all newer computers have at least 512 MB of system RAM.

I want to upgrade my system from KM266-8235, 1.53 GH processor


Hi, you can do what i always recommend to my customers, install a new industry standard architecture (ISA) motherboard kit which will include a motherboard, processor,memory bundle. This future proofs you pc for at least five years, enables you to upgrade memory and processors on a plug 'n' play basis. fitting a kit is dead easy, with full instructions and what's more you will not lose any data on your hard drive either.

I want to upgrade my HP BA 600 Mother Board`s RAM Capacity


Hello,
Most likely your MB is too old for this upgrade although there is a chance you could flash your bios (reprogram your computer's brain to accept the new memory providing hp has a flash for it).
here is a link for the latest bios flash for your computer, use at your own risk.

System wont show memeory upgrade


thing you need to know:
  • how much ram can the board take (you can't put more in)
  • the type of ram (sod,sdram,ddr,ddr2) speed is less importantas it will drop back to the slowest chip.
  • look in the motherboard manual to find out
  • search internet if you do not have the manual
  • static electricity can kill electronic compomants so ensure you have earthed yourself before going into the box or handling the chips (this is a bit late but educational)
sometimes you need to go into the bios (change nothing but "save on exit) the system should see the new ram
good luck
