I have been trying for days to find information on the compatible RAM chip I
need for my PC. I am house-bound so have tried purchasing online.
I have an Intel Pentium III Processor, Speed 651 MHz. RAM Capacity 128MB,
Physical Mem 112MB. Virtual Memory 2GB.
Hard Disk Capacity 19.07 GB
Operating System Win XP Pro Service Pack 2

My system is crashing consistently and I don't have sufficient RAM to
support many of the software and projects I want access to. I plan to upgrade
to 256MB.

Please help,
Terry

Visit www.crucial.com . They have a RAM configuration
tool which allows the selection of your specific computer
or motherboard make and model.

The major RAM suppliers have RAM selector tools on their web sites. All you
do is plug in your exact make and model of computer, and the RAM selector
shows you exactly what you need. For example, look at Crucial
(www.crucial.com).

More RAM may not solve your crashing problem, but you'll be much better off
with more than 128MB. 256MB is about the minimum you need for acceptably
fast performance in XP. You'll be happier with 512MB.

Whatever, don't buy the cheap stuff. For a few more bucks, buy Crucial,
Kensington, Corsair or Viking.
