Ram v's Processor v's New computer
Ok story goes, OH works for a small company whi have 5 office staff. Her PC is an IBM running XP, I know it has a Celeron 2.4 Ghz Processor and 1Gb of Ram.
The computer constantly freezes when changing a 80mb word doc (dont ask but this is the only sioftware to create said doc in) and their IT guy is saying that its a corrupt file, we no its not.
Said IT guy who has loads of experience in IT related stuff, sounds to me he never knows what he is talking about and always fobs them off as they dont know loads about computers. Received this recently from her
"I asked for new pc then got a whole load of c**p from him. About not needing ram and that we can't just put ram in current pc's. We could have a new processor that's faster and would not need more ram. I don't really get it."
Now surely changing the RAM is easier, changing the processor is not and a new computer bearing in mind the one she has is at least 6 years old is had it.
They are still running Office 2002 I think.
