Depends on the operating system you're running and the applications you use. I'd suggest at least 512MB for XP and 1024MB (1GB) for Vista.
My personal computer has an AMD 64 3400+ processor and I run Windows XP. I do a lot of gaming on it also so I have 2GB of ram in it. At 2GB it runs most games well.
Also, take a look at RAM Def. http://www.download.com/RAM-Def/3000-2086_4-10109174.html?tag=lst-1&cdlPid=10185812
While I haven't used it much for actually fragmenting ram, it displays some useful stats about how much ram you are using and how much virtual memory (swap file) you're using. Adding these number may give you a better idea of how much ram you use for various tasks.
The virtual ram is hard drive space that windows uses as ram when there isn't enough physical ram. The problem is that virtual ram is inherently slow, so ideally you want enough ram so that your computer doesn't have to use virtual ram.

Hello,

Your machine takes PC2100 memory modules and yes you should have more memory to run WindowsXP.

For an eMachine the best way to upgrade your memory is to contact eMachine directly and have them advise you or provide you wit memory to suit your needs because their motherboards are pretty specific to them and the specs as sold to you are not available to us.

Use the below to get on your way. Hope this Fixed ya and thanks for using Fix ya.

Regards,

I have compaq presario 2.6ghz with Max Capacity 1gb Ram- is there anyway i can increase capacity to 2gb or even higher?


Unfortunately, if the manufacturer states that the max RAM supported is 1GB, that's going to be all you're going to be able to install - unless you replace the motherboard. This can be a considerable expense.

One last thing you could do is go to Crucial - there, you can run a scan on your computer to find out what memory options you have. I would be very surprised to learn they differ from what Compaq is telling you (unless the motherboard was replaced by someone already).

Please rate this reply - good luck!

My computer have only 190 MB RAm. it's work very slowly. What I can do to upgrade ? And my DVD drive can't read any disk.


In reality you have a stick of 256 MB DDR memory. You are seeing just 190 because the rest is reserved to the video chip.
To upgrade it is dead easy: just buy another DDR memory stick (preferably a 1 GB one) and insert it next to the one you have now.
If your dvd can't read any disks then it has died , replace it, it's a cheap part.

I want to add memory to my computer but do not know what brand or type to get. I have an Emachines desktop PC with the current memory of 256 mb (DDR SDRAM). I play graphic games alot.


Hello

The best way for you to upgrade your ram DDR SDRAM, is to take your current chip to your nearest dealer and they will tell you exactly what the price and brand will be. You can even try to bargain so that you do a trade in with your current chip. Really hope this can help you.

Best regards

Want to kow how much ram I can add and where to buy it.


Hi

Dimension 2350 Series has two memory connectors and supports non-ECC PC2100 (266-MHz) DDR SDRAM memory modules. Supported memory capacities are 128, 256, or 512MB. The maximum (total) memory is 1GB.

Regarding where you could buy? I suppose you can check you local PC store. There is always eBay if you fancy.
