Specs: Windows XP
My old HP has 1.36 gig of ram (you can chuckle but dont laugh to hard it's all I need and can afford). I was given 4x256mb of ram at 400mhz, although I understand that it is equal to only 1 mg would my computer be faster and would it be compatible.
OK you can laugh now,
Thank you for your help.

I'm laughing. You think any of us are looking at your machine from our places on this planet?

What is the exact model number of your computer? Exactly what memory sticks do you have installed now?

Still, with the information you've provided (nearly none), I'd say no...no faster.

Compatible? Might be...might not be. We don't know without the little numbers on the memory stick labels and the info I asked for.

The optimal RAM speed is determined by the FSB speed of the CPU (which we don't know).

"My old HP has 1.36 gig of ram"

That could mean you have 1.5GB RAM with 0.14GB (odd amount) being used by onboard graphics.

"I was given 4x256mb of ram at 400mhz"

Regardless of the speed, I'd say 1.5GB trumps 1.0GB.

And I'm laughing at Skip. Hey Skip, was your comment a vague reference to THIS?
