You have 4 slots and each slot can support 4 gigs so you can have 16 gigs of ram total. I like corsair or Kingston ram the best. And when you are buying ram you want to look at three things. First is the type of ram which your type of ram is ddr2, second is ram speed which is measure in mhz you want the highest mhz you can get and last is latency, which you want the lowest latency you can get :) 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.

I have increase the ram from 512 to 2 gb in my emachine desktop, after i restart moniter not getting the video signal. how to fix it?


OK when you increased the ram from 512 to 2G, your hands usually bump the video card and loosen the connection... Crack open your PC again and re seat the video card... This is all pertaining if you have a separate video card in that computer. Just unplug the video card and re snap it in.

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..
