First off, I'm no computer whiz and don't know what makes 'em tick like some of you here. I was practically overjoyed when I successfully installed a SCSI card in my desktop system a few years ago and actually had the thing work. My dilemma: I'd like to boost my Dell 7500 laptop's memory from 96 to maybe 256 or something like that. Rather than blindly buy memory from Dell, is there a better (and/or less expensive) way to go? Then, after I get it, how difficult would it be to install? Or should I take it to the local CompUSA or someplace? TIA [:)]

Buy your RAM from someplace like [url]www.crucial.com[/url] because it will be cheaper than Dell. If you can get to the RAM slot you should install it yourself.

Go to BUY.COM.... run the configurator, and order Crucial or Kingston. I have upgraded a TON of 7500's... just order the biggest one you would want. You can get a 256meg DIMM for $56 or so.

Listen to Bunghole (can you do that?? [;)] Crucial.com is a division of Micron - Micron being the best memory out there. Also no charge for 2 day delivery and they have a pretty nifty configurator that takes you through the steps in choosing the right memory for your system.
