MOBO upgrade.

  yogibear 07:40 11 Feb 2003

I have an E Machines 320 running Win ME. It is a Celeron 900mhz and has a CN810 MOBO with 256mb of RAM. This is the maximum this board will take, and I want to upgrade it.
I am having lots of probs with the machine hanging/freezing and was wondering if it was a RAM problem? The problem occurs at any time, running any programme, and it is really annoying as I keep losing work.
Would an upgrade help and, if so, can anyone reccommend a board that will allow me the maximum RAM now with room to increrase at a later date.

I did try, naughty I know, installing my sons copy (legal) of XP on my sys to see if I would be upgrading, and I had all sorts of probs with it. In fact it hasn't worked right since. I have since done a format, etc, and done a clean install.
Wasn't aware of the prob with ME, thanks for that. Is there any other way of stopping the leakage?
