Okay, I have this really old Dell Inspiron 5160 laptop that I'd like to upgrade a bit for my daughter's use. The system can be seen HERE.
We don't have to go really crazy with this, but the 64MB video ram just isn't cutting it for the few games she likes to play, nor does the RAM, really. I'd like to upgrade her to 2GB of RAM, and at least 128MB of video RAM, 256 if it's possible.
I've never done any real wokr inside of a laptop before, so I'm looking for some help with this little upgrade. I'm not worried about doing the installation, I can find the how-to online, I'm sure. I'm more concerned with making sure that I get something compatible with the computer itself.
This is for an eleven-year-old, so we don't need anything extremely powerful - just some good functionality.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
