crucial.com have a good scan that will tell you. failing that you could run an app called 'cpuz' or 'siw' among a few others.

Try the freeware program SIW tells you lots of things about your computer including memory & motherboard (the ones you want)

The surefire way is to remove the existing RAM and take it to a shop and get them to supply more RAM. You can use the free "Everest" or "Belarc" programmes to identify your existing RAM but If you don't know how to remove or insert RAM then there is no point in using them and you should take your PC to a shop and get them to do it. You must have an old PC if you only want to move up to 1GB, so you need to be careful that you buy the correct RAM.

More "RAM" (Memory) Thanks cpg

I have noticed from your feedback that you have brought several items from "sharaz1" that

Oh no! Goodluck with Sharaz1

Intel Celeron: 2.4GHz Pretty big bottleneck there. Upgrading from 512 to 1024 will help-depending on what you find slow. The celeron cpu's only have a small cache and that IS a bottleneck. Keep an eye out on trade me for some DDR ram and perhaps a Pentium cpu...IMHO..

My pet *Under the hood* program...LOL Aida32 http://majorgeeks.com/download181.html

"sharaz1" gets bad press on here because he has inflexible post-auction rules that buyers sometimes ignore. He is one of TM's top sellers, it's his living, but buyers expect him to accomodate to their wishes. Most of his negative feedback is from people who don't live in Auckland. I live in Auckland, and I have no problem with him because I collect my goods in person from him. If you bought your PC from him and had no problems then e-mail him for more RAM, reminding him of the actual PC you bought from him so you get the right stuff. Can you install it yourself OK?

Aida32 & Everest are one in the same. Everest being the latter version of Aida32.

Thanks "cpg" I will send him an email and ask for the extra ramWhen I brought the computer I made it clear that I would like more ramBut at that stage I couldn

Odd statement: "You must have an old PC if you only want to move up to 1GB".....why would that be ? perhaps they run xp and 1gb is all they need ?
