It depends what you use your computer for,

Surfing
Gaming
Ect Ect Ect,

i have a dell optiplex gx 260 with 256mb ram for surfing, ok in speed ect ect

you may have a virus on your computer, that was a problem with my brothers computer, it ran very slow, i upgraded the ram to 1.5g from 256 and wernt mutch diffrence,

The point im trying to make is that it may not be ram that you need as xp runs on a 64mb ram (I TRIED IT)

It may be spyware, adware or a trojan,

Try this program "spyware doctor" It will scan your computer for viruses adware spyware ect.

You need more memory. If you have windows xp you need at least 512 memory.

The dell dimension 2400 only takes 1gb of ram (memory), check the dell website... you could do with buying 2X 512mb stick if you are thinking of upgrading the memory,

I have a dell optiplex G240.its ram is 256 and 512mb.but now 512mb ram doesnt support.what can i do?


Well, there are many different types of Ram (Memory) available for many different motherboards. Your current computer support a maximum of 1Gb of ram. And judging from the date it was released, your motherboard seems as though it only supports DDR Ram. Therefore you may either have to buy another set of ram or buy another computer (used if possible). Although the second option is only valid if you are looking for something that is faster than what you currently have. Personally speaking upgrading the memory for an old build will not give you the best performance out there.

List of Memory Type
Ranging from Slow to fast
-------------------------
DDR Memory
DDR2 Memory
DDR3 Memory
DDR4 Memory

Other Thought's
---------------
Re-seating your Ram(Memory) may help get your 512MB
ram running again, however if your 512MB ram is a faulty module it may fail to work.

I have a Precision 670 that I put two 512MB DDR CL3 ECC REG ram sticks in and it will start up but when it reboots, it beeps two slow, two fast, two slow and stops. lights on front turn: AC are...


The issue seems to be that your PC can not handle the supported memory. After review of your system specs on dell's website, I see that you're computer would require DDR2 Memory. This seems to be what is causing the beeping. Please check to ensure you are using the correct memory stick. I hope this has helped

Dell computer.5 yrs.old. Very,very,slow.What can be done? Have dial up internet service. Also, what does memory upgrade mean?


Hi,

There's nothing you can do about your internet speed, dial up is dial up and is known to be slow. If you want fast internet then you would need broadband.

A memory upgrade would speed up the overall performance of the PC. For example: the computer may take 5 minutes to fully boot up and programs taking time to launch. This would not fully resolve but help it to be more responsive.

A memory upgrade is always recommended by me. I expect that your computer can be probably maxed out to 2GB of memory.


Regards.

Computer runs slow . I have a dell 2350 pentium. 256mb ram running windows xp. C drive has 11.7 gb used and 16.8 free.the machine doesnt respond as quickly as it once did


Computers slow down, even after a short time, there is a little guide that will help to speed up, and keep it safe and secure

I would also advise a little more memory, but i have ran a few pc's with 256mb ram and they where still usable.
Try ebay for older types of memory

I want to add more ram. Where do I get it? Dell


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, so don't 'Shoot the Messenger'!

The Dell Dimension 8200 Desktop PC uses RDRAM ram memory.
VERY expensive stuff!

Supporting Data:
This is Dell Support, Manuals, and the Dimension 8200 Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8200/

Scroll down the list to the heading - Specifications, and left-click on it.

Scroll the page down until you come to the heading - Memory
Now look at the first subheading - Architecture
RDRAM

You have 4 ram memory slots. (memory connectors)

EACH, ram memory slot can support up to a Maximum amount, of 512MB. (512 MegaBytes)

TOTAL Maximum Amount for your computer is 2GB. (Not shouting)

1024MB = 1GB. (1024 MegaBytes = 1 GigaByte)

The type of Rdram ram memory is PC800, and it is Non-ECC.

(Error Correcting Control, or also stated as Error Correcting Code.
Used mostly for Server computers. Your computer does not use ECC ram memory)

In My Humble Opinion, (And again, don't shoot the messenger), it would be better money spent to buy a decent affordable computer, than it would be to upgrade the ram memory in this computer.

This statement is based upon the fact that the Dell Dimension 8200 ships with 128MB's of ram memory.
(Makes it a pretty slow computer. Rdram or not)

The average cost to install, for example, 1GB of ram memory is OUTLANDISH! (Not shouting)

Example 1:

http://www.4allmemory.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=search.memorySearch&model_id=24927

Example 2:

http://www.pcmemorystore.com/Dell-Dimension-8200-ram.htm

For about another $100 you can buy a pretty decent new desktop computer, that will run the one you have in circles.

Just my thoughts.

Extremely slow


First run Disc Cleanup and remove all it finds. Then purchase and Add more Ram. You Dell can use up to 4GB or Ram. Click the link and let them scan your computer with a safe download. They will tell you what you now have and the price of upgrading. Buy the most you can afford. Best money you will ever spend. http://www.crucial.com/store/drammemory.aspx

COMP SLOW ALL THE SUDDEN!


I am no expert at vista yet but I can tell you that 2 gigs of RAM is not enough. You can disale some features in Vista, but it is a memory hog and you should probably be running about 4 gigs Ram.
