ohh i got bout 18.5gb free..is that enough

Your confusing ram memory with Hard drive storage memory .
right click on my computer /properties ,and it will show how much ram you have .

it has 256mb RAm is that alright??

that will work ,but more is better ,you should get at least another 128 meg installed

If you're planning to have windows xp with service pack 2 ... then I would recommend atleast 512 mb of ram ... otherwise you can also run windows on 256mb ram fine (I have 256 mb of ram with windows xp sp1) ... but as casperjack said that you'll need another 128 mb for smooth performance.

Agreed. Running Windows XP in 256Mb of RAM works, but it's somewhat like trying to eat ice cream by sucking it up through a straw. You got a bit of a wait while the suction 'melts' the bit you're sucking on! :D

Step 1 - Determine what type of RAM module your system uses
Step 2 - Buy a module of it
Step 3 - Plug it into a spare RAM slot on your motherboard (with the PC turned off, of course)

We arent bothering you about anything either :D .. just suggesting some recommendations .. anywayz your windows will run on 256 mb of ram.

>How can you stop windows to crash ..

If ever there's a crash .. do remember to note the error code (its like this 0X000000xx .. where xx is any digit or letter) and tell us the error code .. we'll tell you its cure.
