If your computer is a Compaq then just give us the model name/number rather than the motherboard model. It is much easier to find out just what you are using. Not to be condesending or rude but posts that are easier to read are much more likely to be read .... yours is really tough to decipher. Most of us probably won't try to read it. Some punctuation would go a long way and would probably generate at least some of the answers your seek.

Please punctuate your sentences and try to use semi-proper grammar, it makes things much easier to read. As for upgrading that computer, you would be much better off to save some money and get an entire new computer. Your RAM is 2 generations old, Yours: SDRAM; current standard: DDR-2. For $500 you could build an entire system based on new technology that would work a hell of a lot better than that Compaq.

You might be able to sell that computer for $100-$150 to help for an upgrade. Otherwise, you have no options. If that thing's upgradeable at all, it wouldn't be worth it. If it uses 168-pin RAM, you'd be better off selling it then upgrading as 168-pin SDRAM is more expensive than any flavor of DDR.
