To upgrade to a newer and better CPU processors enabling me to play more quality games Min requirement CPU type and speed Intel 2 duo or equivalent What types and models and specs please. Have at...


You should get a quad core processor, with a minimum of 3 to 4 gigs of ram, and an asus SLI or crossfire Motherboard. This and a nice 1 terrabite drive can be done for under $500.00, unfoutunatelly, thats just the way they make it. I PLAY cod4, and I run a dual core with 2 gigs of ram and a $300.00 asus MB, with twin 7900 video cards in sli. and it just about runs it, the new games are processor and ram intense, let alone video cards. I would suggest a single card if cost is a factor, you can always add a second or even a third card later. But the you don't want to be the slowest guy playing, especially if you like first person multiplayer shooters

Ram


Hi,
Okay, you don't need two video cards. Your 4 memory slots are grouped in two's. One set is black and blue, and the other set is black and blue also. These are your dual memory channels.

The reason you can't see more than 2 gig ram is because you are probably not running 64 bit Windows with a 64 bit processor.

32 bit windows will only display 2 gigs, but max memory is 4 gigs. It will draw on the extra 2 gigs if ever it is needed, but this does not happen very often, if ever.

Keeps freezing, but works in safe mode, increase RAM?


If you've only got 384mb of RAM then yes an increase would definitely help. You're probably running with close to the bare minimum of RAM. If you're machine (and budget) can handle it, go for 1 Gig at least.

Long periods of hard drive activity


Most likely, it could be the amount of ram you have in your computer. If your running low on ram and it is using the virtual memory your computer can be running all the time causing a slow down in whatever you do. Check to see how much ram you have :)

"out of memory" message appears when I try to print a spreadsheet


Obviously, your PC is quite an older one with less than the required memory. You might also have run other programs that might be hindering your MS works 8.0 as these programs are memory intensive! Solution: Add more than 2 Gig bytes of new RAM ( shop around for a cheap/reliable one )to your PC system as the required memory! As for the page file ( find it under 'Control Panel - System/ System Settings - Advanced - Performance Options - Advanced - Virtual Memory - C: or D: or whichever your logical drives you might have' ), try to increase it to 2 Gig bytes!

A security factor worth taking note of: Use drive D: or whichever data drive your PC uses for its data as sometimes hackers try to hack into your System/ OS drive like C: so as to compromise the IT security.

Your MS works 8.0 might require a re-installation after the increase of the RAM and the page file!

I have a compaq with a 90 gig hard drive, at presenr I am running 384 bytes of RAM. How much will this PC safely handle?


Depends! The amount of RAM has nothing to do with capacity of the hard drive. If your motherboard is a P3, it probably has to memory slots that will handle 256mb each (512 total). It sounds like you have a 128mm chip and a 256mb chip installed now. I won't even attempt to run XP with less than 256mb of RAM. You can run XP with 128mb, but not very well. With Windows XP SP2, you will have to have at least 256MB. Most P4 or newer computers use DDR RAM wich can be bought at larger capacity (ie 1000MB).

Bios upgrade?


You might consider replacing your ram with ALL the same RAM cards. I don't know what the maximum RAM is that you can add to your motherboard, but I have read that some BIOS programs can't read cards that are different amounts from others. Don't exceed the recommended RAM for the motherboard, either.
