Hello,
I want to increase my Ram, but I don't know what information I should look for on my motherboard. I bought a "package" from a computer store in 2005, which is out of bussiness now. Now I have: Intel Core 2 ....6600 @ 2.40 GHz...2.40 GHZ. If it matters, my OS is windowsXP

Here's what I want you to do mate...

1. Download HWInfo32

2. Install and run the program.

3. You'll see something like this: http://www.hwinfo.sk/images/HWiNFO32_1.png

4. Take a screenshot/snapshot of the entire window and post that image here. (Use the "Prt Scr" key on your keyboard to take a snapshot of the program window, open MS Paint or any other image editing program, paste the image into it, save it as JPEG or GIF file)

Looking at your specs, we should be able to guide you with the memory purchase.

OR

You can use Crucial's System Scanner.

Hey ReviverSoft
I downloaded, ran, and made a JPEG file for posting. I can't find how to post it here.

Hi hamluis
I went to the link and found the information. It shows very clearly how to attach an URL for a link. I also tried to use the icon "insert an image". It also wanted an URL for a link. Is there a way to attach an image (of file) from my cpu? I'm new to this site and beg forgiveness if I'm overlooking something.

Mike :thumbsup:

For some reason, users cannot do attachments in this forum...seems to be links only.

It's not you, I've done attachments in the XP forum.

Yes, Crucial is the best company you can buy RAM from. You will know for sure that you will be getting the right kind of RAM (different computer's take different kinds). Everybody uses them.

I ordered a 2GB stick for my netbook from them. It shipped the same day, and got here in two business days (I paid the extra $5 for faster shipping).

Would definitely do business with them again! :thumbsup:

@mrl636

Go to this site, upload your image there and update this thread with the links to that image.

Once we get to see the specs, we can suggest a few options.

And yes, Crucial is one among the popular memory (module) brands.
