Hi

You can get the RAM chips from any comptuer stores. Make sure that you know the RAM specifications on your computer otherwise the the RAM chips that you buy may not be compatible with your computer.
Also check if your computer's hardware is compatible with 1 GB RAM.

How to update my RAM. I dont know how to update my


More ram isn't going to necessarily speed up your computer. Ram basically allows you to multitask. The more ram you have the more things you can do at once. It helps with programs that are memory intensive. On older computers it's not always cost effective to upgrade ram because old ram remains expensive while newer DDR2 and DDR3 modules tend to be less expensive, however not compatible with your computer.

If you did want to add more its relatively simple to do. The side panel of a computer is usually held in place by two screws that can be access from the back of it. Make sure the computer is off and unplugged before messing with its innards. Once the side panel is removed look for something that looks similar to this:

The long yellow and green connectors are what I'm talking about. They will most likely be blue and black in your computer. There's tabs on either end of the connector that need to pushed outward and then the module comes right out.

Take that into your local computer shop and tell them you need more. One thing that you should try and determine is home much ram your computer supports. Often times older computers can't support more than 1-2 gigs. Anything over what's supported is just gonna go to waste, but not before costing you extra.

One thing i would suggest is moving away from Norton. In my experience Norton is a little bit of a memory (ram) hog. There's other free alternatives out there such as Avast and AVG that do just was well. You can also download a program called ccleaner. What this program does is clean unnecessary files that are taking up space. It also cleans your registry of invalid or no longer used entries which can slow a computer. Finally, it allows you to disable unnecessary programs from starting up when the computer starts which is often what ties up ram causing the computer to run slow.

I hope this was helpful and let me know if you have any questions.

Can I upgrade to windows 7


Download and install the Windows7 Upgrade Advisor software using the following link. It will tell you what upgrades you may need.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor

NOTE: [These are my recommendations only] You should have a Video Card with at least 256 MB Ram to take advantage of AeroDesktop. You should have a minimum of 2 GB of System Memory.
I have a laptop with 1 GB System Ram and only 128 MB Video and Win7 works well.

You can upgrade a PC but in my experience it is far better and is more cost effective to purchase a faster PC. Here is what you do, save all your personal important information from it's hard drive onto a USB flash drive. Now sell this computer and then using the money that you would have used to upgrade it buy a new computer.

You don't want to go lower than a single core 2.4GHz with 512mb RAM. However I do reccomend an AMD computer system. See if you can afford an Athlon 2 X2 250/255 they are very good and don't cost very much. Of course you will need to purchase new components, either from a local computer shop or on the net.

If you want to try to increase the speed of your current PC then you will need to upgrade the RAM to at least 512mb, make sure it is DDR400. The next thing to upgrade is the CPU, I think it is socket 478 so it might fit a 2.4GHz socket 478 CPU must check CPU and mainboard is the same socket or it will not work.

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.

Hp Compaq dx2200 MT RAM Problems


Firstly, you have to know that you can upgrade RAM as Double or Half of your pre-installed RAM. For example, like your pre-installed RAM is 256 MB, you can only upgrade RAM of capacity 128 MB or 512 MB. Secondly, check your previous installed RAM's speed that is shown in Ghz. You can only upgrade RAM to its similar speed, otherwise you get slow performance of PC.

I have 256 MB RAM which is slow, can i upgrade it to 512 MB RAM


Depends completely on what motherboard the computer has and what it supports, I could check on it if you have and brand and model of the computer, or from the motherboard.

Sure the prosessor speed doesn't affect the memory amount possible don't worry about that, just need to find out how much is supported and at what speed etc.

Thanks,
Ekse

Which memory ram for amilo pro v7010


http://www.fujitsu-siemens.ru/Resources/123/2080773523.pdf

Here's a link to the Data Sheet with the specifications to that Laptop in Adobe Reader format.

Looks like your Laptop came with either 256 or 512 MB of DDR SDRAM and it is upgradable to 2 GB of DDR SDRAM.

You can check to see exactly how much RAM your computer came with by going to Control Panel, double-click System and it should tell you how much RAM you currently have in the System Properties box.

The motherboard has 2 slots for RAM, you you could add a second 256 MB or a second 512 MB stick of RAM. Or if you wanted to upgrade to the 2GB of maximum RAM this computer handles, then you can take out the RAM chip(s) that is installed and install two 1G DDR SDRAM.

My desktop is working very slow


you speed up your existing system by upgrading the memory to 1GB.
If you want a much faster machine then you will need to replace the motherboard, memory, PSU (power suppy) hard drive and processor.
If you change the motherboard etc you will notice the difference in speed
