What type of external hard drive can be added


The motherboard can only take 2 GB of memory. If you tried a larger memory stick in any slot, the motherboard will fail to recognize it. A larger hard drive or an external drive will only increase storage and page file capacity. This will not improve the performance of the computer. Memory caching to the hard drive is limited to the bus speed of the hard drive interface (much slower than the RAM).

The better option if you can offered it is a new computer, if you do any gaming. You are dealing with a 2.8 GHz CPU with a 400 MHz bus. The computer is probably fine for e-mail but video and gaming response will not improve.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Yes you can still add memory on your computer. I believe that the memory installed in your computer is one 256MB ddr sdram. Since the motherboard of your computer has 2 memory slots, it can support up to maximum 2 GB memory ( unbuffered PC2700/2100 non-ECC DDR SDRAM memory ). Or 1GB on each slot. Hope this helps.

Hi,
Inspect the memory slot carefully. If there are are bent pins in the slot , you can probably align them with a pointed tip. Otherwise the best option would to replace the motherboard. Because after the process RAM is the fastest component in the computer. Out of experience in repairing the motherboards ,i recommend to replace the motherboard.

Thanks Fixya

I found this for you. Open it with Adobe Reader or the like.
From what I read, it should run!
It could be you damaged the RAM cards. But that's just one possibility.
And don't mix and match cards. They should BOTH be the same size or you're going to wreck something lol.
Hope I helped in any way, post a comment to let me know.

Upgrade motherboard?


Hello Keith,
The present Motherboard in your computer is Asus A8AE-LE. It has a lot of upgradign options.

It will support the Following CPUs.
Up to AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+
Up to AMD Athlon64 4000+
Up to AMD Sempron 3200+

Also, it has the following memory specifiations.
Memory Installed 1 GB (2 x 512)
Maximum allowed 4 GB* (4 x 1 GB) requires the replacement of the installed 512 MB DIMMs
Speed supported PC-3200 MB/sec
Type 184 pin, DDR SDRAM
DIMM slots Four
Open DIMM slots Two

And the PC has a PCI Express x16 slot you can install a high end Video Card along with a power supply upgrade.

So before you go ahead with replacing the motherboard I would recommend you to consider these options as we can cut down the cost to a greater extend and having the same iprovement on performance.

If you wish to upgrade the motherboard you can use any motherboard having ATX form factor [9.6 in X 9.6 in] in the computer. The CPUs should be selected according to the motherboard you have chosen.
Hope this helps
