Adding more memory to my desktop

I want my computer, which is 133M-Hz, 128 MB ram with a Pentium 3 processor, to operate faster. I don't have the manual for it, and don't know what type of memory I can add, or if it's even possible to add memory...

    My gateway essential 400 cant run newer programs **** *** window 7... or explorer 8... or flashplayer 10... how can i upgrade my computer 2 make it run these programs ? a new hard drive ? or what do i do...


    You can add hard drive if your system doesnt have enough space for the new programs. If the new programs installs well but is running slow or not starting, then you will have to upgrade your RAM and for better performance, fix one graphics card suitable for *********** board. If you can spend more, Upgrade *********** board and processor.

    My son has my old computer and it needs a video card

    Your information is slightly conflicting. Pentium is a type of processor, and AMD is another brand, your computer can't contain both types of processor. Your video card will either be AGP or PCI-e, depending on the model of the computer. If you'd like to leave me the model of the PC, I'll look it up for you.

    Want to kow how much ram I can add and where to buy it.


    Dimension 2350 Series has two memory connectors and supports non-ECC PC2100 (266-MHz) DDR SDRAM memory modules. Supported memory capacities are 128, 256, or 512MB. The maximum (total) memory is 1GB.

    Regarding where you could buy? I suppose you can check you local PC store. There is always eBay if you fancy.
