I am not really very computer literate

My PC at home (a Compaq Presario) currently is partitioned into a 7.35 GB main drive and a 2 GB backup. Both are practically full. Our needs have changed in the last few months, as Fergal has discovered games and I have discovered, cough, archived videos. We've had it for just over five years.

Is there hope? Can I add much extra memory to it without having to resort to buying a new machine? If I do get a new computer, is it worth while considering getting one that I can just plug into the existing peripherals (printer, monitor/microphone, speakers)?

Your advice is welcome.

I seem to recall (sometime in the mid-90s) a Compaq hard drive that had neither an IDE nor a SCSI interface (or was it the connector at the motherboard end rather than the drive, I can't remember). It was supposed to be an IDE interface. Of course, I didn't find this out until the maching was in pieces...

You are correct. Compaq's did use a drive interface that was neither IDE nor SCSI - but that was a long time ago.
