Ok for now Jupes, set yours to GMT -4 hours. That gives the proper time.

Pen, I'm sorry hun, I don't know which time zone you're in. What time is it right now?

It's now currently 8:37 for me. That's the thing, they don't change back and forth in the GMT zone, so when our time shifts, and theirs doesn't, it means that we're going to be off an hour, if you follow what I mean.

Try making yours GMT -3 hours Pen. That should do it.

There is an update on the Microsoft windows update site that remedies this problem. Once installed the time zone settings should correct themselves if you select your time zone.

I have a question about RAM. I may have asked you already but I forget....I don't fully understand what it is or what it does. I was told I needed more so I bought more and now I have 704MB of RAM. I was told it would speed things up but I don't notice a difference. Did I waste time & money on this?

Ram is like short term memory for a computer. The operating system, applications and anytime else you run are all loaded into ram, the more space you have the more applications can run without having to slow down. If you exceed your ram limits the os writes the most inactive things stored on ram into virtual memory, it is a folder kept on your hard drive to store such things. The hard drive is much slower than ram so if you dont have enough ram your computer will slow down. Now the processor is the thinking part of the computer, it handles all the computations and if that is too "small" then your system performance will suffer too. There is also "short term memory" devoted specifically to video and that is called a video card and it enhances your computer's graphics capabilities. Any questions?
