well...i can tell you that you need PC133, SDRAM...but i can't tell you what your MAX allowable ram is...as i can't find out EXACTLY what motherboard is in there....but i would say that it has to be capable of at least 512 (some research is showing somewhere around 7something)

you currently have 256 mb of ram (how you're using xp FUNCTIONALLY with only 256..is mind boggeling) you've got 2-64 MB chips and 1-128 chip...all unbuffered non ecc sdram...

SOOOO you SHOULD get either:

2- 256 pc133 SDRAM chips that are non buffered non ecc ram and get rid of the two 64 mb cards and the one 128...that would put you at 512 MB...wich is usually acceptable...you could alternately

keep the 128 card in there and get another 128 and a 256 which would also put you up to 512

WOW!! I'm so impressed!!
Thank you ever so much for all that! I'll take a little trip to a computer shop next week.

It's hard working from home without the backup of an IT department and me being slightly clueless (As you might have gathered!)

Thanks loads for all that help and guidance - it's hugely appreciated.

Teresa.
