    I bought a new color printer today, keep trying to install it, but it is telling me my computer is not meeting the Ram required to install the program.

    It says:

    Current is 447 megabytes

    Minimum is 512 megabytes

    Recommended is 1024


    WTH do I do to increase the computers RAM? :confused:

    HELP! I'm going crazy!

    Thanks!



    {It's an HP Officejet J4580 all in All-in-one}

    Step 1) Go to Best Buy and buy some ram.

    Step 2) Open your computer.

    Step 3) Take out old antiquated ram.

    Step 4) Install new ram.

    Step 5) Close up your computer.

    Step 6) Go!

    Go to crucial.com

    Choose "scan my computer" and it will check to see how much RAM you have and how much your computer will allow. Then it will give you the option to purchase.

    I purchased from this company because I found the RAM they were selling was competitive with other prices. But once you find out what you need, you can shop around.

    Make sure once you have purchased your new RAM, that you find a MAN that can install it.

    BTW...what printer did you purchase (or steal)?

    EDIT: I see you mentioned the printer.

    Xotoxi meant "male." Everyone knows only a fourteen-year old lad can do this stuff.

    Instead of saying "male chauvinist pig", couldn't you just say "chauvinist hog" and it would save you some keystrokes?

    Because you bought your computer at least 100 years ago and have done nothing to upgrade it in the last 99 years?
