Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Want to upgrade pc memory, problem is I don't know how to find out what type of memory it has. Model is a spirit 550 P4 2.93 I think it's badged under Packard Bell/NEC bought from PC World about 3 years ago. Need to know the type of memory I think it may be DDR2 400 PC3200 I thought there might be a way I could find it via the system information on the pc itself, but it doesn't give ay details. Have also tried the online memory configuration tools at Kingston & Crucial but no joy there either. A


Answers :

Hi !
You may try EVEREST Free Edition 2.20 (http://majorgeeks.com/download4181.html) and see if it can read your memory module.

Also, you will open the case anyway (to install a new memory module), so open the computer case now and try to read what is written on the sticker on your current memory module. There should be info about type, capacity and clock of the memory module you are using.

Regards.
Ok, what you need to do is first find out what kind of motherboard you have. Once you do this you can visit the motherboard manufacturer's website and search for your model to find out what kind of memory is compatible and it will also tell you if there are any limitations to how much memory your board will support. The easiest way to find out what kind of board you have is by installing a free app titled "System Info". Sweet and simple! Follow the link I am providing and download/install the Standalone English version - not the Pro - and it will open up after you install it with a long list. You need to look for the Motherboard listing and click it to find out the specs. Hope this helps, but let me know if you need further help with my instructions...I'll be here!

I have an ACER notebook Aspire 4920 and, I think, because an update I installed (prompted I may add by my laptop!) it is now not working.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
