my old pc has been struggling with facebook and chat at moment but memory for it isnt that cheap when compared to others - do you think i should spend out for memory or just save the cash and save up for a new desktop or older laptop?
memory needed is DIMM 184-PIN DDR 400MHz / PC3200 CL3 Non-ECC - was going to put 2 x 1 GB in...crucials scanner says it can handle 4Gb but as its running XP home no point putting that much in!
Also, confused by this in system info...
Total Physical memory : 1,023.48 MB
Available physical memory : 117.84 MB
Total Virtual memory : 2.00 GB
Available Virtual memory : 1.96 GB
Page file space : 1.71 GB
having a blonde moment but am guessing I have 1gb of ram and 2 GB of disk space for virtual memory? is that right? Also why would my available physical memory be so low? Does XP use that much? Only thing running is System info and firefox with facebook, crucial and froogle!
Am a single mum and as my daughters birthdays are November and later this month money is obviously very tight just now, as compared to tigh normally! - LOL!! So all thoughts appreciated as this pc is driving me mad just now but got it with no disks so cant do a fresh install t clean it out!
