How to upgrade RAM

  DShaughnessy 08:59 19 Nov 2004

I'd like to improve the RAM on my PC. Traiuble is how do i find out what RAM I have at the mo? I believe it's 128 or 256K. How do I know which type of memory to buy?

My PC is a Median microstar running on XP which does not have a handbook stating the PC specs.

Hope u can help.
