    I have taken out 4MB of Ram out of an old computer. Will this help my current computer become a little faster and if so do I just need to pop it in?
    Thanks in advance

    Just curious what did you take it out of?
    I can't imagine that it will fit or work in your new computer!

    it was this super old computer that we are throwing away and i just thought i would check to see if this would work- guess not!! lol. How much is a stick of RAM, what size should I get and will it increase my speed, easy to install?

    It's easy to install. What you need and how much it costs depends. How much RAM do you have now and what is your operating system? Also what is the make and model of your system or if not a brand then the same info on your motherboard.

    i currently have 64MB of RAM and am running windows 98, the 4MB of RAM i have looks to be too small to fit the slot i have now for RAM, i think the motherboard is a VIA with the number VT82C598MVP underneath it and i think the system is an AWArd modular, i hope that info is alright

    thanks
