Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Want to upgrade Gateway 825 GM with 1 GB to 3GB myself.

\015 Are there any video or good instructions available to do this myself or would it be best to send out for upgrade---Best place to purchase memory board for price?\015

Answers :

Go to www.crucial.com and put in the details of your machine. Memory can be iffy and its best to get some that WILL work, even if it costs a bit more. Right now, DDR2 memory costs $10.00/1Gb and DDR is about $35. Crucial will tell you what you need, and how many your PC can take then BUY it wherever you can.
To install, do a websearch on Memory Upgrade DIY and follow instruction. It is not hard and thake good eyesight, a bright light, only a phillips-tip screwdriver and patience.
Don't forget to unplug from the wall and touch the metal housing (case inside) occasionally while you are in there to dissipate any static electricity BEFORE you touch anything one the inside and every now and then wile you are working.
Also, if anyone is 'helping' you, they too MUST ground out (touch the frame/case) before touching you or the box. I was working on a laptop once, wifey came home, took off her jacket, and gave me a kiss on the back of my head, a spark jumped from herr lips to me, and the laptop died. It is still dead.
She meant well but you cannot underestimate the power of a carpet, jacket or curtain shock.
