Hi just added 512MB ddr sdram memory to siemens scaleo l 2600 with 256mb

running windows xp home -

using pagemaker - winamp - windows explorer -

shows up as 760mb ram but as yet have seen no difference in performance of machine -- should there be??
or any way of checking/testing???

You should notice the difference when using multiple programs. You may well also se it when using agemaker or more likely when manipulating images.

when playing audio files - Realplayer or Winamp
and I'm browsing windows explorer - music is interrupted if lot of folders - in browser window
- this still appears to happen even with the added 512MB ??
most annoying :(

have tried altering setting to give more memory to programs but no difference

Is the music stored on the PC or playing off a cd?
Also try running a program like A Squared free click here to see if there is any spyware using your system resources.

on top of spyware ?? spybot S&D - windows anti-spyware - etc - plus bonus of not being connected to web at home -
have downloaded A2 to try
registry cleaned often and Ccleaner etc used often -

will let you know - but sure system is clear of

nothing starting at startup except AVG7

Any Faults with Windows Explorer using to much memory ???? in thumb nail view - but sure 760MB ram would be abe to deal with that ??

Which processor do you have? I can find reference to your model with either an Athlon xp2600 or an Intel Celeron 2.6Ghz.If it's the latter then it is most likely the processor is not up to the job.Celerons have always lagged well behind most other cpu's when it comes to performance.
