Hello,

Well first you have to see how much memory your able to upgrade to Most computers if you never upgraded as of yet allow you to upgrade to twice of what you currently have For example you have 32MB of memory The most you might be able to upgrade to would be 64MB of RAM That would be the max for your motherboard After you get that information of how much memory your computer can hold you have to find out what memory module it is (ie: SIMMS, DIMMS, etc.) and if it is SDRAM, or DDR.

So all in all not to discourage you but i highly doubt you can achieve the 128MB of RAM on your computer you currently have 32MB of RAM on In any case you can purchase a new motherboard which supports more memory on it You can shop online for good deals for a combo kit of a motherboard, with CPU and sometimes even memory included as well Then you would use the same parts you currently have in your computer now (ie: cd rom, hard drive, etc) Just check your computer to make sure your still not under warranty with the manufacturer Some good sites to check out for motherboard combos are..
