I was recently thinking about buying and installing ram for my mothers computer to help speed it up a little, because she is against getting a whole new one. Unfortunately I have no idea where to find out what type she needs, or type that would correlate with her computer. So I came here for some suggestions.

Her Computer specs are:
Compaq Presario 6000
Windows XP (SP 2)
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.50GHz
504 MB or RAM

Any Help would be appreciated,
-Jon

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.
