Hi, im going to reinstall XP on my gf's friend's Compaq Presario MCPCLAP6, is there any tips anyone can give me?
It has 368 mb of Ram (one 256 and one 128) but i do have an extra 256mb of Ram from my friend's laptop that he replaced with 2gb, is there anywhere i can add this 256mb to help it run better? The reason i ask is that when i run the Crucial scan on it i get a message saying 'we dont currently sell any modules into this sytem'. why would it say this please?
