    How can I add more RAM?

    Take a shoelace, a piece of aluminium foil and take the RAM out of your pc.
    Next wrap the ram inside the aluminium foil amd put it in the microwave for exact 59 seconds, but put the shoelace between the microwave door (make shure the microwave door closes enough).
    The shoelace will pull all the memory out of the infinite void inside your head.

    When the microwave is finished, put the RAM back in the computer, but do not remove the aluminium foil until installed.

    To get additional 512mb ram it is recommended before the microvawe you put the ram over night into fridge (without aluminium foil).
