Hi Ihave just installed a new printer and since i have done so i am having difficulty getting connected through aol. when the printer is unpluged (like now) aol runs fine, just like before i added the printer. i phoned aol to see if they could help and they took me to aol system information where it said "ram 64mb(100%load). they told me i need more ram to run both together properly. i have a 5 year old packard bell, windows 98, 450mhz pentium 3, 64mb ram. do you think increasing the ram would help me out or are aol talking crap, could there be any other possible solutions? Any advice would very gratefully recieved. Many thanks John
You would be better with more ram at least 128mb but that's not the problem you have got. AOL it talking rubbish. My gess is you are running a HP printer., if so you would do well to get the latest drivers from HP for the printer
Before you rush out and buy more memory you need to check what memory slots you have in your computer, you may find they are simm and/or dimm slots. If so you may have a problem finding memory. I have just checked 3 of my suppliers websites and not one of them is listing simm or dimm memory. That is not to say they haven't got any but if may be difficult to source.
