OK, my daughter got a new Mac and gave my wife her old IBM.
Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack 3
IntelŪ PentiumŪ M
366 MHz, 448 MB of RAM
Physical Address Extension
As I have been trying to get it to work at something other than "glacial" speed, I sought help here:
One idea is to upgrade RAM, so I looked at this option:
There is currently 512MB installed. The question is: What is optimum? Do I simply buy another 512 and double my memory? Is there possible compatibility between the old 512 and the new? Or, do I buy two new 512's so that they match. Or, do I buy two new 1G's (is 2G overkill for this old machine?) Is there a preferred memory where speed is concerned? (brand, etc.) The prices are fairly cheap and I'm not opposed to spending for two new 1G chips if that makes sense.
I have certainly appreciated the help I have received here in the past. All are very generous with time and expertise. Thanks in advance.
