i apologise if this has been posted before but i am new to this site today.
I'm having various problems with a PC running stupidly slow at times. Its currently 128mb ddr ram, and i'm looking to upgrade it. Its running windows XP at the moment. But it seems to run slow. I had Norton Anti Virus installed but the system grounded to a halt. So it's been removed until more memory has been added.
I have a different anti virus program installed, and adware installed too. I also have a program called window washer installed to clean things up. so i don't think its virus or anything like that.
Can i get away with sticking in a 256 ddr ram in my spare slot next to my current 128mb ddr ram, or do i have to balance it out by only using another 128mb ddr ram or use 2x 256mb ddr ram.
Can i get away with just sticking the ram in and the machine recognising it or am i going to have to have a fiddle.
thanx for any help that people provide, and apologies if this question has appeared before
