Well we'd need to know the speed of your ram. Is your computer custom built or more something like a Dell/HP/Compaq/ect? Also, we'd need to know some information about the motherboard to see if it can even take more ram.

What can you do about it? Well you can get more ram, its not too expensive. You can get ram at stores like Circut City, Best Buy, or any old computer store will have ram. You can also try online places to buy your ram like pcdirect.com, pricewatch.com, and newegg.com. The price of ram will vary depending on the amount of memory it holds and its speed. The prices will also very depending on where you buy them too, its usually more expensive at a place like Best Buy which costs $70-80 to buy the same speed/memory ram that I could buy somewhere else for $50.

But yes, more ram is always better, especially if you have only 128 megs and you want to play games. At the very least, you'd need 512 megs of ram to run games alright.

You might try going to the manufacturer's website and download the specs for your machine; that will tell you which type(s) of ram you can use.
