Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

I am a novice to computers and would like to upgrade my ram. Could you please help in any way. Thanks Dennis


Answers :

What type of CPU do you have? Is it a pentium 3 or 4 or dual core?

Are you willing to buy in online or in the store (easier to match what you need)?

If you are going to get it in the store, turn your PC off and locate your RAM. IT will look like this.

Pop a chip out and look at your Mainboard's model number. It is somewhere printed on the mainboard most likely in white. Google it and get the specs to see how much ram it can handle. Take your chip down to Best Buy or your local computer store and get what you need.

There are levers on either side of the ram. flip those out and line up the chips. Press it in until both sides snap in. Put your biggest stick closest to the CPU. If your mainboard is dual channel you will see your 2 ram channels separated. Put identical chips on both sides.

Hope this helps you out.
Give me a bit of information about your computer. Model number and how much RAM you have now.
