Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

More RAM wanted

\015 My desktop is often ridiculously slow, and regularly wipes the screen on my monitor, and takes upto 5 seconds to ''re-lay'' in horizontal lines from top to bottom.\015\012It's an emachines 330 running XP, and quite old, but still going. It has an intel celeron processor, 20GB HD with 3.8Gb free, and a pair of 128 RAM cards. The tower has a max of 256 RAM, is this maxed out? Can I put a pair of 256 in to help speed things up. It is regularly defragged and cleaned up.\015
