I believe it's pc133 sdram for the evo w4000 shown above. You can either try going through the manufacturer's website or just some google searches to see the computer's specs.

What are my options to increase processing speed and RAM rather than purchase a new desk top


The RAM can be bumped to 2 GBs (2 x 1 GB PC3200) the processor you won't be able to. I'd recommend looking at refurbed computers I'm sure you could find one at least twice as good as this for $100 or less.

adding more ram is the best way of speeding up a computer If youre not sure if a module is right for your system use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules
you should always ask for a guarantee on compatibility before purchasing any ram and buy working pairs if possible you might have to many programs running at the same time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit b> Hope this helps.

I can't close tower cover


When your computer appears to slow down, one way to help increase its speed is by adding memory. You can easily purchase memory chips from various online sources or if you have a Dell Dimension and want to stick with Dell products, you can purchase additional memory chips from Dell itself. It is not difficult for a non computer person to add memory to a Dell Dimension, although sometimes, it is cheaper to purchase a new computer and then install additional memory.

Shut down your computer, turn the computer off and unplug it. Open your computer case. There will be two thumbscrews on the back of the Dell Dimension computer case that will release the cover. The side of the computer case will then slide backward and lift away from the rest of the box. Locate the slots for RAM. These are short off-white slots that are near the power supply on the motherboard. They will be slightly longer than the RAM you are about to add. There will be at least one RAM chip already in place in one of the slots. Place your new RAM chip into a blank slot gently. It does not matter which slot you use; any will work. When you press the RAM into place, be sure the notch on the chip lines up with the slot. There will be a guide on the slot to ensure that you do not insert the chip backwards. Press down on the RAM chip until it locks into place. There are two guides on the side of the slot that will snap into place on the sides of the chip to ensure the chip does not fall out. It will take a bit of pressure to make the chip snap into place, so press straight down into the motherboard to get the chip in place. Close the computer case, put the thumbscrews back where they belong and start up the computer. Your Dell Dimension will sense the new RAM, which will be available to the operating system when the computer starts up. Hope this helps.

My son saved up and bought a Gateway SX2855-UB12P. We have upgraded to 8MB of RAM and now are looking to upgrade the video card which currently is a PCI Express x16 Graphics. Given his machine is a en


Hope you mean upgraded ram to 8 GB 8 mb is not much ram to run a computer.

To upgrade your computer's graphics card, unfortunately you can't just simply purchase a card and install it to your computer. Before purchasing a card, you must first confirm what is compatible with your motherboard. Graphics cards use either AGP or PCI Express technology. Many older computers use AGP. AGP cards can vary in version and bandwidth, whereas PCI Express cards can vary based on their lane . Moreover, the card itself is not your only consideration when looking to upgrade your computer's graphics. You must also consider the strength of your computer's power supply as well, since most newer cards use a lot of power. Download, install and run SiSoftware's Sandra (see link Below) to find out information on your motherboard. http://download.cnet.com/SiSoftware-Sandra/3000-2086_4-10556571.html Click the "Mainboard Information" icon, then write down the information next to "Manufacturer" and "Model." Navigate to the motherboard manufacturer's website. If you are not sure of the website's URL, enter the manufacturer's name into a search engine to find the company's website. Go to the support page and enter your motherboard's model. Download the motherboard's manual or review the specifications. Search the manual or specifications for "Expansion slot," "AGP" or "PCI Express." If the expansion slot uses AGP, note the version (AGP comes in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), as well as the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x). If the expansion slot uses PCI Express, note the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16). Search the manual or specifications for "Power," "PSU" or "Power Supply." Write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V, 5V or 12V) and amp rating (designated by "A"). Not all manufacturers list the amp rating in their documentation, so you may need to contact the manufacturer for more assistance. Compare the graphics card you want to buy to the motherboard's expansion slot. AGP cards won't work in motherboards using PCI Express, and vice versa. Similarly, AGP 3.0 cards won't work in motherboards using AGP 1.0. A PCI Express x8 card will not fit in a PCI Express x1 slot. Check the voltage and amperage of the video card to the voltage and amperage on your motherboard. A video card that requires a higher amp rating requires a powerful PSU. Hope this helps.

Acer aspire t 160 wont boot after ram installation


When purchasing RAM make sure ram modules are of the same brand any type
IE corsair ddr3 low density or hynix high density ddr2 you should always try to keep the same brand and type of ram
reason being the compatibility issue

and always place the largest ram module closest the CPU central processing unit

also check the ram sockets for dust and make sure the ram modules are securely seated you can do this by pressing the levers at either end of the ram sockets.


If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the

Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.


First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system.


You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.

You could put the old ram back in your computer and see if it starts then you will know if its the ram.


Hope this helps.

I have a dell dimension 4550


It can be done, but to tell you the truth, if you are looking to upgrade the MB, processor, and get additional RAM, you would be better off just purchasing a new PC. You would probably get a better deal.

Just my opinion.

Increase RAM for motherboard K7S41 to 1GB.    1) Do I use 2X516MB cards? If so what type?    2) Do I use 1X1GB card? If so what type?


If you want 1GB , Especially if your motherboard supports Dual Channel Memory capability, then you will want 2 512mb sticks.

However, I seen in some instances that purchasing a 1GB stick is cheaper then purchasing 2 512mb sticks depending on where you shop.

Try looking around on Newegg (personal favorite for shopping computer gear) or other places and see the various prices.

Another thing, to determine the ram you have in your system , I reccomend a few utilities to familiarize yourself with your computer.

One of them is called Belarc Advisor, and the other is SISoft Sandra which will identify your motherboard and tell you the memory type and timings so you can write down this information to take to the store you are shopping at so you do not get the wrong kind of memory by mistake.
