Is there a way for one to tell as to whether or not their system is lacking needed RAM? And is there a way for one to tell as to what RAM would work best for their particular system?

If you have Windows XP/2000 you can give your computer the three finger salute "CTRL-ALT-DEL" and view memory in task manager under PERFORMANCE. Monitor your page files also, this is the amount of hard disk allocated to memory. You can also tell if you try to do stuff and your computer access the hard drive ALOT....this means it's digging into PAGE FILE memory more so than physical ram.

The system I am wondering about has Windows ME on in. I was able to take The Belarc Advisor that another member posted a link for and rand that through this system. It is running a Tyan Computer Corp i440BX-NS351 MoBo, with a 350MHz Intel Pentium Processor, and only 64MB of RAM.

If it is running SDRAM I could snatch about 128MB from another system that is ready for the bone yard and use in this one, if there is a way to see if the RAM is compatable.

As bad as WinME manages memory..I won't run WinME with any less than 2GB. This should last you about 3 days before having to reboot because WinME won't release memory that has been used. ;-)....all joking aside.

It won't hurt the system to "try" the 128MB stick. Stick it in an see what she does.
