Packard Bell PC - Upgrade Help please

  DW9047 22:30 19 May 2005

System Info is as follows:

Packard Bell Pulsar 24, PII 233mhz, 32 mb ram, 4gb HD.

I have tried to find info out on Packard Bell website, but cannot find anything. I want to know what is the MAx this system can upgrade to?

If anyone can help it will be much appreciated.

Not a great deal I'm afrain, you can upgrade the RAM thought to what degree depends on the motherboard. I would hazard to a max 256 of 512MB, the HDD upgrade no problem though the os would determine what size, 98 or millenium can handle large drives. That would be about as much that is worth upgrading. Better would be to invest in a cheap and cheerful new low budget pc. Look at Microdirect click here or somewhere similar.

Hi DW9047, somewhere on your pc tower should be the model and serial number for your pc. get them and then go to the Packard Bell website

click here

and under customer support enter the serial number for your pc.

You should then be able to get the details you need for your pc.

( I'm not sure but I think it maybe Packard bell that 'tattoo's' its hardware in their pc's. You may have difficulty upgrading yourself.)
