Anne wants to know if a ReadyBoost drive can add more RAM to Window XP
I note you recommend Ready Boost USB which includes additional ram to Vista and Windows 7. Do you know of anything that would add additional Ram to Windows XP other than replacing Windows XP for Windows 7? I am too old (91) to learn a new computer. Any help you can give will be appreciated. Your premium newsletter and recommended software which I purchased has been a huge help to me over the past 10 years and I appreciate all you both have done for me and others. Anne
Hi Anne. Thank you very much for your kind words and support. Unfortunately, the only way you can add RAM to Windows XP is the old fashioned way – opening the case and putting it in. It’s not as hard as you might think, and it’s hard to make a mistake. If you put it in wrong, your computer won’t boot. If you put it in right it will, and you’ll have more RAM. You can only put RAM in two ways – the wrong way (which we’ve done) and the right way. Things got much easier when Crucial.com started their new system of scanning your computer and telling you exactly which kind of RAM you need for your computer. And when they send it to you, they send easy to follow instructions – with pictures to show you exactly how to install RAM correctly the first time. RAM is cheaper than ever, and it’s never too late to learn something new, right? If you want to add RAM to your Windows XP computer visit Crucial.com. They have great prices, fast service, and they can tell you exactly what kind of RAM you need for your computer. And, believe it or not, we don’t make a penny from Crucial, we are just very happy customers 🙂
Windows Vista and Windows 7 users can add RAM the old-fashioned way too. Our they can give their computers a boost by inserting a ReadyBoost flash drive into a USB port on their computer (but not in a hub). Our MegaBoost Flash Drive can add over 3GB of RAM to any Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer – plus it comes with licensed versions of three of our favorite and most recommended programs: Captain Optimizer, Registry Commander, and SUPERAntiSpyware Professional. We even include our best selling ebook “Your Computer Won’t Bite II”. Sorry, I could not resist the temptation to promote our MegaBoost flash drive – it really is a great deal.
