How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.
Memory or DRAM is the 'working' memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.
Video is available for installing memory.
I am from Chennai,India & hence for economical reason,would procure locally & install.
Also,would post the results later.
A matched pair of 512 would do nicely. A matched pair of 1 GB would be overkill but would work.
Now if you mix ram , other than matched pairs.
1. Computer may not even boot up.
2. Boots but you have all kinds of hair pulling errors.
3. Works like we want it to.
Food for thought.
You are Welcome and I sure do not blame you for looking locally for the new ram.
Do u mean to say if i install 1GB ram along with existing 248mb RAM(this perhaps what u mean by Matched Pair),would be too much for my system.
And the ideal would be 512 to work in harmony with the existing one.
Have i unerstood correctly?
Or by matched pairs,u mean to say the existing 248 to be discarded & a New pair of equal capacity to be installed.
To my illuck,local mkt does not have the recommended types & splitting my hair for alternative.
Importing would be too costly & for that a new system could be procured.
I never give up so easily,esp after joining VirtualDr Forum.
Thanks for yr Timely information.
But which factor desides the max additional capacity permissible?
