im wanting to replace my RAM, but i dont know which it is, ive tried looking at the actual hardware and there is nothing on it to state what type it is or anything, i have 1GB of RAM at the moment in 2 seperate 500 slots, im wanting to put a 1Gb in each slot, so that i can have 2GB Smile i was having the issue with the game world of warcraft that kept crashing, and blizzard support have told me to upgrade my ram which ive been planning on for a while but im really stuck on how to find what it is, i need like a serial number or something from it,
also, my pc is extremely slow all of a sudden, the windows xp loading screen stays on for about 4 mins... and i also cant get into safe mode as i was told to on a previous post, i press f8 and it brings the menu up, but i cant navigate up onto safe mode, it just stays on start windows normally and wont let me move Sad any help would be really great thanks Smile

hi there

for the ram i would look at the make and model of your mobo and then look on the manufactures site for the supported ram and buy accordingly.
if you are not keeping the old ram in then it wont matter if its different as long as the board supports it.
as for slow pc that could be a lot of things.
i would just try a fresh install but if you cant then run msconfig from the start menu and turn off everything in the startup tab.
hope that helps a bit
chris

An if you still want to look up yourt system information you should be able to view it by running msinfo32.exe. There is usually a short cut to it under Accessories | System Tools
