Operating System Version: Win ME
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: 256 MB RAM Memory
Error Messages:

Okay:  I have a Packard Bell PB9367 (old!)
With: Celeron 366Mhz, x2 i810-l 100Mhz AGP Graphics, 4.3 GB HD, and 64MB Memory.

I know this comp sucks.  So I am trying to build it up, is it possible?  Hoping to get GeForce Vid Card, better memory, better processor...hope I'm not wasting my time (and money) on it if it cannot be done.

I have updated the CD-Rom to DVD-Rom, bought extra memory: 256MB.  But it's not recognising it.  Having checked up on the model of computer, I'm told by PB that it can hold up to 256MB mem.

Do I need to bios flash?  If so, how do you do this?  Or is there something else that needs to be done?

Thanks in advance.

Very old system. Why don't you go for a new motherboard as well, when you want to upgrade the CPU? A new mobo/CPU/RAM combination would be far easier than finding a P2 or P3 CPU that fits on that motherboard.
