Hi Linda,

In order to answer your question, I would need to know the exact manufacture and model of your computer.

Every computer is made with similar parts, but made by different manufacturers and at different points of technological availability. This means that variables such as the company that made the motherboard for your computer, the type of processor you have, and the year it was made, can all can limit the types of memory your unit is designed to use.

Almost all computer vendors register their model's specifications which are indexed by various sites that can be used to quickly identify replacement or upgrade parts for your machine.

I recommend www.crucial.com or www.goldenram.com to use to search for the correct RAM for your system.

If you would like to post us what other information you can (such as model type or make) we would be happy to help more.

Is it possible to install windows vista in this computer?


No, it needs at least 1GB of RAM and a much better video card.

Hello i bought some pc2100 ddr ram 512 mb for my dell 2350 but when put the ram in it beeps and wont boot up it came with 256mb ddr sdram can anyone tell me if this is the right ram and if so why wont it...


The best thing to do when it comes to computer ram, and replacing it, is to take the stock (the working ram that came with the PC) ram out and take it with you to a local computer store to ensure that you're getting the right kind of ram.

Your PC can be VERY picky when it comes to computer memory, so don't guess what's right for it.


Hope this helps. :)

My everex computer has 448 mb of ram i would like


Actually your computer does have 512 RAM. The 64 MB discrepancy is what the graphics memory uses. 64 + 448 = 512, get it?

If you want it to show full 512 MB, you need to install a separate video card. Refer to your PC's manual and see if it has a separate AGP or PCI-E slot.

If it has then you can choose from the many available in the market.

You can choose between having a low end low cost or a high end one designed for gaming. Just choose what suits you best and remember that a higher power card requires proper cooling and higher wattage PSU (power supply).

Note that no matter how much RAM is installed, some portion of it will be used for graphical operations.

Can the memory be upgraded (increased) from the basic (factory installed) 512mb on the Sony PCV-W300G?


Hi there.
As far as i know you can upgrade the RAM to 2GB, 2x1GB 184pin PC2100 DDR DIMM Desktop RAM modules is what it can take.


Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

I need to replace the 512 Ram Memory card with 2 new 1 gb cards


Yes that's correct simply turn off the power OFF from the computer and to make sure unplug it from the power outlet, then remove the existing 512 RAM and put the new RAM and then turn the power back ON and that's it.....

After loading service pack 2, my system is running much slower. memory 512. help


you need to increase your virtual memory (since you upgraded your service pack, most likely it will consume more ram)

from My Computer - Right Click > Properties

Then click on the Advanced Tab > Then click on perfomance settings

Then Click advance > Virtual Memory Settings

You can change it to say, 1000 (since you have 512 RAM ) to support the excess applications.

Let me know what happens.

Sdram capacity


its that 512 mb total capacity for your computer memory?? if so read this:
To find the total amount of RAM that can be added , subtract the amount of RAM currently in the computer from the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold. For example, a computer has 256 MB of RAM. If the maximum amount of memory the computer can hold is 512 MB, then 256 MB is the amount of RAM that can be added. this info from the HP website , to find out more , go to http://www.hp.com/support , enter the model number , and look for more information about your computer specs, hope this helps , please rate & thanks AJ

Video card


Hi Yosemic..

Bad news for you... your computer don't have an AGP or PCI-e slot, so a video card upgrade is possible, but no recommended cause you will have to buy a PCI VGA (very slow).

Your computer only have 3 PCI slots as you can see at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/specs.htm

Better buy a new one..
