What are you wanting to upgrade? The ram or the operating system?

Your laptop can take upto 256mb of ram. Its the old pc66 sdram that it takes. A 128mb stick would certainly make a big differance on top of the 64 you already have.

Chances are that you have a lot of progs set to start on startup. Turning off some of these will make a big improvement.

heres how to do it in win95

    Thats right. Just line it up and tilt at 45 deg angle and it will slide in. Then push it down till the clips engage.

    Just make sure you get the right ram as its quiet old and rare now. pc66 sdram sodimm is the one you want. Ebay is the best place probably.

    Keep up the good work in Iraq :)

    Thanks

    Does you laptop have a pcmcia slot in the side of it?
    An internal one probably isnt available so thats the best solution.

    Personally i would recommend a netgear wg511 card. There seem to be drivers for it for windows 95 so i presume its compatable.

Upgrade NEC Versa VX


You can insert the Windows XP CD while logged on Win 98 and run a test from the CD. Obviously you need a larger Hard Disk and at least 126 MB RAM to bring XP to a usable speed. You can look for RAM upgrade options in this page.

Is this an old PII machine? If it is, don't waste you money with memory and operating system. You can buy a used XP P4 or Centrino laptop for what you would spend upgrading what you have.
