Compaq 5301 running Windows 98. System board has three DIMM slots as follows:
Slot 1 (SDRAM) 64 MB
Slot 2 0
Slot 3 0
Just how much more RAM can I install? Am told that the 64 slot can be changed to 128. Am also told than it must be done in pairs, but yet an odd number of slots. For home use just how much RAM do I need? I do not play games and am not into the big graphics. Question is what is the max I can do with these resources and what is a reasonable recommendation. Should it be done professionally? Note: the question may not be difficult but it is worth the 200 points to me.
