Re: random access memory

- You can't download memory. But you can buy it in your favorite computer shop.

- What do you mean with 6GB/16GB left? How much do you have in total? How do you measure the total and what's left?

- Are you sure you mean RAM? Somehow, I guess you mean hard disk space. But you can't download that either. You have to buy and install and start using either a second hard disk (if possible in your computer) or a bigger one to replace the current one. But quite a lot of people find it better to throw away (clean) a lot of data they don't need so they don't have to buy another disk.

- Random just means you can access whatever you want immediately. Compare it with a music cassette tape and your mp3-library in iTunes. To listen to any mp3 in iTunes, just click on it. To listen to a specific song on a cassette tape you need time to fast forward or backward to locate it. That library is "random" and that tape isn't.

Re: RAM

Yes, I'm sure. 16 GB RAM is VERY much. How do you measure that 16 GB and 10 GB? What program do you use to find out?
My netbook has 1 GB RAM, my XP PC 2 GB and my brand new Windows 7 PC has 4 GB, and that's more than enough (I never use more than 2 GB as shown by Task Manager).

But you might be interested in an upgrade to USB 2.0 in stead of the old USB 1.0. Much faster.

And no, you can't program it (whatever "it" is) in a macro.

RAM in today's system is PHYSICAL so 'ain't no way you

can download it'. You have to insert/install it in a DIMM slot on the mainboard/motherboard.

The good news is it's relatively inexpensive and you can get it from your favorite local PC retailer or online vendor ....like Crucial.com, Newegg.com, etc.,

If you post your specs....PC Mfg name, series and model number....like 'HP Pavilion e1610n' maybe we can make some additional recommendations.
