Windows XP - speed up - Memory boost

The single most important thing you can do to increase your computer’s speed is to add RAM--random access memory. It’s also the one thing in this course that will cost you money (but it’s worth it).

Think of your hard drive as a big box full of puzzles and games, and your RAM is like a table where you can assemble puzzles and play games. The bigger the table, the more puzzles and games you can play with at once. Conversely, when you have a small table (limited memory), your hard disk is forced to serve as an “artificial table” (or virtual memory). This fake memory trick works fine, but it causes the computer to slow way down. So it’s far better to have enough RAM so that your PC isn’t forced to use its hard drive for virtual memory.

The price of memory has dropped dramatically in the last few years, making an upgrade an inexpensive way to get a big boost in performance.Adding or replacing RAM is relatively simple to do: You simply plug some chips into sockets on your computer’s motherboard.
The challenge, however, is getting the correct memory module for your PC. Just about every computer is different. Some are already equipped with plenty of memory, while others have very little. And there are a lot of different types of memory, so you need to be sure to get the exact right module for your system.
