    after using yahoo browser for 2/3 years and having trouble all the while . i find out today my pc does not have enough ram to support yahoo??? i have 192 and need atleast 256. now what? is this an easy hardware install? this pc stuff is killing me. i just wasted 2 hours to find this out!
     
  2. 192 is very small amount of ram these days. What operating system you using? 1 gig is minimum in my opinion, 2 is better. However you need to see what the mother board will support. Go to

    http://www.crucial.com/

    and run the scan my computer to see what it comes with. You can purchase from them if you make sure you get the right stuff, or to save a little go to NewEgg.com. It is a easy/economical performance boost.

    Have you ever tried Firefox?

    Well if u are not doing any gaming or anything u would be safe for probably another 6 months on 512mb's but any gameing? then deff, need atleast 1 gb. I currently am running 3gb's of ram and still could use more :)
    Will also agree about newegg.com i have bought stuff off them before and also bought ram, just make sure u get some with heat sink on it if u plan on using ur comp alot and wanting the ram's performance to last.
    Installation is easy, merely snap in and go. As long as u get the right ram for ur motherboard.
     
  4. Post the type of memory you need. I'm sure that a few of us have some 512 sticks sitting around without a home.
     
  5. FOR GOD'S SAKE MAN!

    How many times are you going to post this? How many times do I have to offer you memory for free? How many times do I have to tell you that it is super simple to replace RAM? It's keyed, like a puzzle, you can't mess it up!

    I have a 512MB stick with your name on it, just sitting here, as it has since March...How long will you continue to ignore the need?

    Same Thing in March
    Same Thing in April

    You need to find out what type of ram u use buddy before he can send it to u.
    Theres several different types. SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, Rambus DRAM. Anyways, just google what type of ram i have and it'll pop up with a program for u to dl that will find and tell u what type of ram u have, then just post that in here so we can find out, k?
     
  8. I think he has already determined that in earlier threads. Commodore64 had already confirmed that he had the type needed.;)

    oops, my bad, lol. i dont read threads all the way thru sometimes, lol thx.
     
  10. I'm gonna hook him up with 2 x 512MB sticks. And if we can figure out a way to get me the computer, I'm also going to nuke his harddrive from orbit and reinstall windows...because I suspect he has other lingering spyware/malware stuff in there.

    If that happens, remind him to stray away from the free porn dl's, yahoo.com, and limewire. ;-)
     
  12. Limewire killed a hd for me once. I love limewire, lol. I tried to warn my sister of limewire, but she used it anyways and now has a dell paperweight, hahaha. Of course she used to download those free mouse pointer programs too. It got to a point that I told her I will no longer fix her mistakes because she would keep making the same ones.

    Enough thread jacking...... Freyed it sounds like commadore is hooking you up, which is good. I have 1 gig and at times think about addding another, I cant see how you can deal with 192.

    i guess the $325.00 pc is very low budget all the way arounf. someone said i might have 256 but it is being shared ?
     
  14. That would mean its being shared for pc memory and also graphics memory.

    commodore yelled at me cuz i thaught ram was storage somehow ,but not memmory????DUH...L.O.L.
     
  17. Ram is not keyed like puzzle. If you put it in backwards you will fry the MB. If it isn't seated all the way you normally get a beep code. Some cheaper MB's actually quit working altogether if the ram isn't seated correctly. Also, he'll need to check his MB manual to find out how much memory his system can hold.
     
  18. RAM is keyed so that in addition to being a total idiot, you'd really, really, really, REALLY have to jam it in there to put it in wrong and get the clips to seat. There is a divider, in the slot, and it is asymetrically placed to prevent one from putting it in the wrong way. It's been this way since PC66 SDRAM, which actually had 2 dividers in the slot. But yeah, if you managed to get the RAM in the slot backwards, you could frythe RAM or motherboard.

    Also, I linked to his specs in one of his previous threads. We know what his system can hold.
