Well I have had a IBM Aptiva for about 2 years now and hav since upgraded it from 24 megs of ram to 64 megs of sdram and have upgaded the prossecor from a p166 to a AMD-K62 333...any way in the IBM user manual under "installing more memory" it states you can install a maximum of 64megs of SDRAM.Now my question is,is that true? I still have one slot left to add more ram in and would like to add another 32 megs but dont wanna burn anything out....Can my ram be burned out if I add to much? Here is my computer model:http://www.pc.ibm.com/support?lang=en_US&doctype=&subtype=All&page=brand&menu=model&brand=IBM+Aptiva&family=IBM+Aptiva%7CAptiva&machineType=IBM+Aptiva%7CAptiva%7C2137&model=I BM+Aptiva%7CAptiva%7C2137%7CE15

Take a look at this article to explain why only 64MB. http://www.winmag.com/fixes/txchips.htm

It looks like you are at the end of the road here. Another consideration you can think is to leave the machine alone and it should be fine. You could also upgrade the motherboard and probably a new case. http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif
