I know you will notice a big difference. Let me know how it goes.

I like to go into BIOS/CMOS Setup after adding memory to make sure that the BIOS can see the memory. Sometimes you need to do that anyway and then Save the CMOS so that it doesn't give you a message each time you boot about the RAM having changed.

Hello Ron! :)

How are you?

I finally got my computer vacuumed out and my new RAM installed. I moved the 2 older RAMs into the unused slots and placed the 2 new ones into the used slots per your instructions. You suggested going into the BIOS/CMOS Setup to check out the memory, but I don't know how. Could you please explain how to do that?

You press F1 when you see the HP/Compaq logo after a boot. See:

Should be on the Main page. Doesn't look like you need to do anything tho. Should be automatic.

How is it running now? Do you notice a faster boot?

I checked the BIOS/CMOS Setup and saw 3 GBs there.

My computer is working beautifully! Booting up quickly was never a problem. It was in trying to access the internet that made everything slow down to a (not responding). I've since added a password to this computer so the kids can't play their online games and mess it up again. Mean of me, I know! :lol: We have another computer they play games on anyways.

Thanks again for all your help Ron!
