My Dell Dimension 3000 has built in memory of 512mb, it is running really slow and been told i need to increase the memory, have seen a 1gb upgrade for just over £31, really wondering how easy it is to install the upgrade if i bought it online, also can the 1gb be placed in alongside the 512mb, or would it be better for someone who hasnt got a clue about computers to take it to a computer shop to get them to do it :?:

Using the computer in question, go to http://www.crucial.com/uk and use their system scanner or memory advisor. That will tell you what memory is inside and what you can add. I believe they also do video tutorials on adding memory to your computer - it's not difficult.

If your stuck for memory / RAM upgrades, give me a shout, when I closed the shop last year I had still a few sticks of RAM left....

If your stuck, give me a shout, I'm in the town every day, phone number above the shop is still the same :wink:

PS OP If your machine is running very slow it could be down to Malaware or Virus activity, I've sorted so many laptops lately that 'slowness' has been down to Virus's....

A guide also.... Windows XP 512MB to 1GB would get you by, Vista now really needs 2GB RAM!
