You have not mentioned whether it is a laptop or a PC.

If it is a PC when you open it you will have slots for your RAM cards. They would be on the mother board. You can remove them and then take them to a nearest hardware store and can ask for another 256 MB or directly can take 1 GB if your motherboards supports 1 Gb.

If you are not sure where the RAM is...then better surf the net to see RAM pictures...

If it is a laptop then the same way but you would have the slot at the back of the laptop...

My laptop keeps freezing keeps saying not responding and is very slow


Sounds like it might be infected with spy-ware/malware or a virus! Get a program like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or AVG 2012 and scan you computer and see if it detects anything. I'm sure it will pick up something.. When did it start doing this? Please let me know if this was helpful and if itsolved the problem and good luck..

Xp is running very slow, it takes forever for a task to complete- ie installing software. Ran defrag, disk clean up, spy ware removal, antivirus.


1. Try removing temp files from hdd
2. Uninstall all malwares and antivirus, try using trial version of Mcaffee 8.7i with updates and scan viruses and remove it.
3. If memory is low try increasing upto 1GB atleast.
4. Try reloading OS.
