Need help removing malware

Recommended Posts

You can increase you RAM to 4 Gigabytes if you wish but I would settle for 2 Gigabytes. Refer to link:

[url="http://www.memoryupgrade.pro/dimension-4600.html"]http://www.memoryupgrade.pro/dimension-4600.html[/url]

Here are specifications of your PC.

And the service manual.

Now to save paper if you do not wish to print here is a program I use 'CutePDF'. It will create a PDF file from which you can then print to your printer by page numbers.

Ensure you download the FREE version.

That will keep you busy for a while.

Do I want:

2GB Dell Dimension 4600 desktop memory 2x 1GB 311-2867 PC2700 184-PIN DDR 333MHz PC DIMM upgrade

OR

2GB Dell Dimension 4600 desktop memory 2x 1GB 311-2876 PC3200 184-PIN DDR 400MHz PC DIMM upgrade

(same price)

????

I'm thinking it's the PC3200 but I want to be sure. So, am I actually going to have to install some hardware into my PC myself? If so, this ought to be an interesting experiment... Edited by bumpyphish

Can you in Belarc Advisor find anything with PC2700, PC3200, 333 MHz or 400 MHz?
It is safest to install memory with the same speed as the memory you already have.

Do you know how to protect the computer from electrostatic discharges?

"Do you know how to protect the computer from electrostatic discharges?"

No, definitely not. Tell me more.

"Can you in Belarc Advisor find anything with PC2700, PC3200, 333 MHz or 400 MHz?"

No, I don't see any of those terms in the Belarc report. However, regarding this link:

[url="http://www.memoryupgrade.pro/dimension-4600.html"]http://www.memoryupgrade.pro/dimension-4600.html[/url]

When I click the link, the title of the page is "Better made Dell Dimension 4600 DDR 400MHz Unbuffered DIMM memory upgrades" and below that it says "Expand with a Dimension 4600 PC3200 184-PIN UDIMM PC RAM module kit option". Below that however, for sale are both the PC2700 333 Hz version and the PC3200 400 Hz version. Is it possible that website recognizes the specs of my machine? There is NO PRICE DIFFERENCE in the different memory upgrades.

If not, how else can I recognize which memory upgrade is preferable? And how hard is this installation going to be? Is it something I physically have to install to my hard-drive or is it software installation?

No, that link does NOT recognize your PC. It is just a link I found.

You will need an ESD wrist strap so you don't zap your new memory chips. They are quite cheap to purchase and should have instructions with it.

In regards to the memory chips the 333 and 400 is the speed. If you have one of each your RAM will run at the lower speed.

So should I just get the two chips at 400 speed then?

How can I find out which speed is ideal for my system?

So I do have to actually install the new chips myself to my hardware? Could I just take the system somewhere and have some professionals do it? Would it be a ton more expensive to do so?

Yikes...I'm scared of what might happen if I start digging around in the hardware of my computer....

Yes, get 2 by 1 Gigabyte chips at 400 MHz. Go and find your friendly PC guru and ask him/her to remove the present RAM and install the new ones for you (just tell him/her they were a present). It should not cost you too much. You will be amazed the difference more RAM does for your PC.
