Suggest on a new PC purchase you get it with as much RAM as it will hold meaning - if your going to be using Windows 7 and the new Dell will hold 4 gig of RAM - get the 4 gig.

The newer operating systems take advantage of 64 bit processing so they will recognize higher RAM where an older XP system was somewhat limted as to how much RAM it would utilize. RAM in an inexpensive item nowadays and it never hurts to have more of it.

Enjoy your new computer.

With any new computer you should get 4 GB of memory, the more the better. There are two version of Windows you can get 32 or 64 bit. The 32 bit version of Windows has a 4 GB maximum on the memory, the 64 bit versions go much higher depending on the version you get. 4 GB will give most people more than enough to do what they need. To see how much memory you currently have just Right-Click on the My Computer icon and select properties. In the window that comes up you will see the memory you currently have.

Dell inspiron 6000 XP has been infected by a virus.How do I erase the virus from my laptop without having to resort to buying the required software from an online software company thats probably cause


Well,if you don't want to buy a software to erase it,then you should have to reinstall your operating system,delete all partition,and INSTALL AN ANTIVIRUS
try AVG antivirus,it's FREE and easy to update,don't want to buy something don't you?
P.S it's hard to restore a computer which is already infected without reinstalling the operating system

We have played the xbox call of duty for 3 months. game now telling us that profile could not be used . wanted us to renew our gold membership. the console was preowned. do we have to renew or can we...


To play ONLINE Call of Duty then you will need a Gold account. I am assuming that you had bought a 3 month membership to Gold and that is why it has run out?

If the Xbox 360 is used then you still might have a few free trial periods free for 1 month Xbox Live. If I recall previously you could load up to 4 trial accounts. So try just creating a new user profile and see if it doesn't give you one month free for that account? If not then the previous owner has used all the trial accounts.

Make sure you don't use a credit card when signing up to Xbox Live though... it will automatically be set to charge you for renewal when your Gold Account runs out.

If you have to get a Gold account then I recommend you purchase the Live cards at your local store. Some people go onto Ebay and find cheap deals... but I have heard of a few people complain when getting cards that don't work.

Dell inspirion i had buy 3 months ago and now my speaker is facing problem head phone is working excellent but what happened to speakers


Hello,

This can sometimes happen if you have installed a program or tried to very recently. I suggest you restore your laptop to a previously good setting.

Choose a day before when you last recall the speakers working well. E.g. if you recall the speakers giving a problem on 5th october, select a date before that. It should work. Good Luck.

Can you get more memory downloaded or do you have to buy a new memory stick? my dell optiplex is too slow and error said i need more memory ram i think


Hi anitabruce25,
memory is hardware related. Yes you do need to buy a new memory stick if you wish to add/increase your ram (memory).
If after memory has been upgraded and your dell optiplex. Dell hardware is is usually propriety, which means you purchase the memory from Dell.
However, there is a few things that you can try to help boost your speed. First link ... please click on Microsoft this will give the basics of cleaning up. 2nd. please make sure your running one copy of Antivirus/spyware (I like AVAST) and it's free. Download and install Home edition. This has antispyware and antivirus protections. Does a little extra which you will be pleasantly surprised. like scanning email,etc... Lastly ... download and install CCLEANER (aka **** cleaner). Removes/deletes all unwanted temp data. It can also perform a registry clean. which in the end should assist with boosting your pc speed.
Failing this ... then upgrade you ram.
The helpfull staff at Dell will be able to assist with the ram upgrade, they will ask for a service tag on your dell and provide you with the answers you need.

as always ... no matter what type of work is performed on your pc. Please make sure you have a valid backup of your data.

The internal memory is very small and wouldn't hold very many pictures. Try using a separate card reader to download your pics to your computer.
