Hi Martina,


Thanks for your post.


I have looked in to your system and the maximum memory it can take is 2GB so unfortunately you would not be able to go above that.  I can see that you currently have 1GB in total.  You will notice an improvement in performance when you go up to 2GB in your system.


If you do have any other questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.

Re: How much RAM do I need?

This post is ancient but I wouldnt reccomend bothering picking up more more ram for your machine. The processor on this is very slow by today's standards (no offense) and doubtful 1g of ram would make much difference. If you're just using it for email and light web surfing, it might not hurt. If you're running any software that's reasobly modern, it might make more sense to look at replacing the compaq.
