Can I install microsoft office 2007 home and student on my computer with windows xp and 248mb of ram


You should have at least 256 MB of RAM to run Office 2007. It might run with 248 MB (did you mean to type 2048?), but it will be very slow; you would have to be very patient.
You can use Windows XP, you just have to make sure you're running at least service pack 2.

My pc run too slow. (p4vp-mx) with 256 mb of ram os.win xp and many programs are instaled. my quetion is: what is the maximum ram should I instal for this motherboard? and what else can I do to max....


This motherboard can support up to 2 GIG of RAM and upgrading the RAM will definitely increase the speed of your computer, to make faster also better remove some program that you don't use to free some resources on your computer and do a defrag on your computer.

Slow computer with 256 MB,


efore you make any purchases, you need to know how much memory you have and what type of memory to buy.Find out how much RAM your computer has:
Windows 7
Windows Vista
In Windows XP, go to the Start menu, click Settings, and then click Control Panel. Click System and then select the General tab. At the bottom of the page you should see the amount of RAM.
Most games will specify the minimum amount of RAM you need to install them and play. For example, Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban requires 256 MB. This amount includes RAM that the computer needs to do its own background work as well as to run the game.
The amount of RAM you need depends on the operating system you are using. For systems running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP, you will need the minimum recommended amount, but more is often better, depending on your needs. If you just use your PC for surfing the Internet and writing letters, you need 512 MB to 1 GB. For more RAM-intensive programs, such as games or photo editing, or if you like to use a lot of applications at the same time, such as desktop publishing and video rendering, more than 1 GB is recommended. Each program should come with system requirements that show both the minimum RAM needed to run the program, and the amount of RAM needed for its best performance.
RAM modules can be purchased in a variety of sizes.
Figure out what type of RAM you requireTo determine the maximum amount of RAM your computer can handle as well as the speed, consult your PC's owner's manual, which should show you the number of slots (the place where you insert the RAM), how much each can take, and the maximum your system can use.

Can i'm going in pc game for vista


1. PC games are better supported by Windows XP than Vista.
2. IGI is a large game and and may sometimes play very slow on vista.
3. This is because the game eats up a large amount of your RAM during gaming which slows down background windows processes.

4.However, the better way to play IGI on Vista is to install a NVIDIA Graphics Card - GeForce 8600GT - 256 MB / 512 MB on your computer.

Happy gaming! :)

I have 256 MB RAM which is slow, can i upgrade it to 512 MB RAM


Depends completely on what motherboard the computer has and what it supports, I could check on it if you have and brand and model of the computer, or from the motherboard.

Sure the prosessor speed doesn't affect the memory amount possible don't worry about that, just need to find out how much is supported and at what speed etc.

Thanks,
Ekse

Sluggish slow performance and bad keys


Sounds like both machines may have spyware / malware on them. I would download Malwarebytes Anti-malware scanner, it is a free download; can be found here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Paying for the program gives you "real time" protection, but it is fully operational without paying the only difference is no real time protection is offered.

This will get rid of a lot of the junk that often gets installed on a computer over time.

The other thing to look at is upgrading your RAM, a lot of computers are sold with only 256 MB of RAM on XP machines and 2 GB on Vista machines; these are the bare min required to run Windows; you should max out the RAM for your machine; depending upon the age of the machine you should be able to add anywhere from 2 GB to 4 GB of RAM, really old machines may have a cap limit of 512 MB or 768 MB check with your manufacture before purchasing. Some motherboards will support more than 4 GB but unless you are running XP 64 bit or a 64 bit version of Vista; the 32 bit OS is only going to see a max of 4 GB in XP Home Edition it seems to only see a max of 3 GB.
