I had a 256 Mb Ram memory and have just installed an additional 256 Mb one.
The PC is running well and on "My Computer" -> "Properties" under "General" tab I can see 512Mb of RAM.
Recently , when I boot or restart the PC a "Hardware Update Wizard" window pops-up .
(I hope it is not related to the memory addition).

Opening the "Device Manager" I can see in the right pan "Modems" with two related subjects:
"Communications cable between two computers" and
"Communications cable between two computers #2".
This second subject has a warning mark ! within a small yellow circle on its icon.
Clicking on this subject i get the same wizard as above.
I am connected to the Internet using Hi-speed cable through a router. I have no problem connecting to the net.
Please I need your assistance.

It would seem that someone has tried to run or did run the Network connection wizard and tried to set up a cable coonect between your computer and another one. Open device manager and highlight these two "modems" (one at a time) and click remove. That might solve the problem.

This is not related to adding the ram.

Post back and let us know if that works.
