I'm waiting on Chris to let me know what he plans to do with increasing his memory, I will keep you posted on that .... OK.

Can you point me in the right direction of how to Backup my system. I don't know if I'm asking the right question, but hope you know what I mean.
Also, I was talking with DELL's Tech Support today inquiring about the prices for their Hard Drives and Memory.
The memory: 2, 1 GB Module for Dell Dimension 3000 Desktop
will cost total: $106.44
I didn't get the grand total for the Hard Drive, but their selling it for a List price of $89.00.
In your opinion, can I get the two for a much cheaper price, or is that the standard price.
If I can get it cheaper, can you point me in that direction ???

I had no idea that you answered my post, never got a notification. OE is really acting up now.
Anyway, I don't know the size of the hard drive I'm looking for, DELL tech support never told me the size of the hard drive, we only got as far as the price.
I'm going to post several SNAPSHOTS so you can see my System and maybe you'll be able to tell what size I need.
I don't know if you need the attached, but if this can't help you, let me know.
Thanks rshaffer for all your help !!!

Also, can you tell me how to do a Disc Backup.

I only backup my data files which I keep on a separate drive also.

I have NO idea what to do.
But every time the message would come up on Chris' PC for backup, what was Compaq talking about ???

It may be the system saying that the drive needs to be backed up or that a backup is scheduled. I'm not sure without knowing the exact message and being able to look it up.

Simplee55...are you looking for memory AND another hard drive for yourself?
As for Chris's computer, wasn't there an error about the hard drive failing and to backup now?
EDIT to add computer info.
CPU Type Intel Celeron D 320, 2400 MHz (18 x 133)
Motherboard Name Dell Dimension 3000
Motherboard Chipset Intel Morgan Hill i865GV
System Memory 512 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)
EDIT: added info on Chris's drive. From his topic post 59
After I boot up the system, after the COMPAQ log than the next screen is the Black Screen of Death. Here is what is says at the very bottom:
Maxtor: 6E040L0: Hard disk failure is imminent. Please back up your hard drive and have it replaced.
From that point, I can either hit F1 or F2, I hit F2 to get the system to finish loading.
Is there anything that can be done to stop this Black screen from stopping in that place ???

Simplee55...are you looking for memory AND another hard drive for yourself? Yes I am on both accounts. What would you suggest I do first, the Memory or Hard Drive.
As for Chris's computer, wasn't there an error about the hard drive failing and to backup now? Yes it was. I see you found what I said about Chris' pending Hard Drive failure.

I'm sorry as again it was another long day again.
The best thing for Christopher's system is to replace the drive completely. He can do this by just purchasing another drive and cloning his existing drive to the new one. This would result in a exact duplicate of his evisting hard drive and hopefully no data loss.
