Please could somebody help me with the following issues?
My husbands PC had trouble shutting down a couple of nights ago and since then when he switches it on it is extremely slow and has trouble doing anything more than a single command at a time. This computer is around 5 years old and my partner is adamant that it had a 512mb memory but I have just checked the system information and it gives the following:
AMD Athlon (tm) XP 1800+
1.54 GHz, 224 MB RAM
My question therefore is - can the computer actually have lost some memory, causing the slow problems and also error messages as I didn't think memory was ever installed in 224mb size (ie; would normally be either 256mb, 512mb etc)? If so, can this problem be rectified by buying some more memory and if it can be what is it that I need to buy?
Thanks for any help,
