Having problems with your E-Machines T2240 PC Desktop ?

I have an eMachine T2240 with an Intel Celeron processor 2.20 GHz & 384 MB of RAM.  The only real complaint I have is that this machine runs slow - it is rather aged - and I tend to bump up against my memory limits periodically.  I want to boost my speed and increase my memory on this machine.  Any suggestions on what kind of processor and memory upgrade parts I should consider?


Answers :

Memory: Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. You may purchase here.
This will give you the biggest speed increase.

CPU: I could not find specs for which cpus this motherboard supports. However, I had one of these same machines and succesffuly swapped out the celeron processor for a pentium 4 processor, 2.53 GHz. You should be safe finding a used processor on ebay that's a Pentium 4 2.2 GHz and it should work for you.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
