Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop ?

I increased the virtual memory to install a program, but it still says I have only 150-200 MB of RAM left. How do I increase the RAM?


Answers :

To work around this behavior, restore your custom settings:\015\012\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control\015\012 Panel.
  2. \015\012
  3. Double-click System.
  4. \015\012
  5. On the Performance\015\012 tab, click Virtual Memory.
  6. \015\012
  7. Click Let\015\012 me specify my own virtual memory settings, select the settings\015\012 you want, click OK, and then click OK.
Unless you are very skilled, I'd let Windows specify the memory vs setting myself.
Well normally you get more ram on a stick and put it in the computer but if what your asking is what to do once you have done this then it should show the ram no problem failing to do so would normaly mean you need to flash the bios settings ect there is a giude on google about how to do this hope this helps
