Will I see any gains at all?

Should i go to staples to buy an upgrade for my ram? I'm assuming I have 2 1gb cards in there, so i'll need just a 2gb card to get me up to 3gb,,,,,,will i notice a difference? I run firefox, and go through about a TB of data each month.

but most of the computers and laptops are not more upgradeable because the new models are introduced day by day they want lanuch the new computers and laptops so you cant upgrade to 4GB . maximum is 2 GB in your laptop.

SOURCE: Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB

The Extensa 5620z comes with 1GB of DDR2 memory. That's two sticks of 512MB. This unit technically supports 4GB; 2 x 2GB modules. However, unless you're running a 64-bit operating system (if you have to ask how you'd know, trust me... you're not) then only about 3GB will be usable. There's no fix for this, it's just a fact. All standard 32-bit operating systems are coded this way
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: problem while upgrading my RAM

some systems require matching pairs, so since you are using mismatched, it may only recognize 1 GB of the 2gb module

SOURCE: I have Acer laptop Aspire

Your laptop's RAM is upgradeable to up to 4 GB using two DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM modules.

So your upgrade options here are:
1. Buy a 1 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 2 GB (Price around US$ 25).
2. Buy a 2 GB DDR2 533/667 MHz SODIMM module & install it to get a total RAM of 3 GB (Price around US$ 45).

I want to install a new motherboard what should i buy

Your motherboard is the main component to your computer, so if you're thinking of re-using your RAM and CPU, you'll have to make sure you get a motherboard with the same RAM type (ex. if you have DDR2 RAM, you'll have to get a DDR2 motherboard) and the same CPU socket. My recommendation is that you find a motherboard that fits inside your tower, and buy a processor and RAM that is compatible with your new motherboard. If your hard drives are SATA connections, you should be able to reuse those on a new motherboard, but if they are IDE (big, flat wire) then you'll need to made sure the new board can accommodate your IDE hard drives. CD ROMs are also mainly SATA now, so if you have an IDE CD rom drive and IDE hard drives, it will be difficult to find a NEW motherboard with more than one IDE connection, meaning you'll have to change jumper settings, or simply buy a SATA CD-rom drive.
As far as software goes, you'll most likely have to reinstall your operating system if the upgrade is a substantial one. Video card is another thing to consider. Your motherboard might be using the older AGP technology, whereas new motherboards are useing PCIe connections. So to sum it up, when you upgrade your motherboard, it affects a lot of other hardware, but if you simply swap your motherboard with something compatible with the rest of your hardware, it isn't really an upgrade.

Upgrade HP Compaq Presario F750US - CPU, GPU & RAM

You'll spend more money trying to upgrade this laptop then it would cost to just buy a better used one on eBay. Probably even spend more that it would cost to buy a new low end computer. Save yourself the headaches and time and buy a NEW laptop.

Upgrading vs. New PC?

I took a look at the specs for your Desktop PC... It's far outdated, so I wouldn't hesitate to replace it.
I just happen to be a bit of an expert in this field, and I'd advise you to avoid buying from a retail manufacturer (which is nothing more than rebranded hardware). If you're interested, I do have a service on here to provide help getting you the perfect Desktop PC (or even Notebook/Laptop if you'd rather go that route). My fee is cheap, and I'll surely save you more than that. Either way, no matter what you decide, be sure to research anything you buy before you do. Let me know your budget and we can go from there, if you're interested. But to answer your question, again... Yes, it's in your best interest to replace the system. (Your motherboard only supports up to 256 mb of ram, and that is older form factor, plus it won't even come close to the system requirements to run any modern Operating system.)

I hope this clears it all up for you. Have a great day, and let me know if I can help any further.
Please remember to rate me, Thank You.

Wanting to buy gps was thinking of the 1350 ? they have free amp upgrades for NZ and Australia can you have loaded multiple countires at once...

The basic 1350 model doesn't have free map updates but the 1350LMT model does. LMT stands for lifetime map and traffic updates but of course you're pay extra for the LMT models. Note lifetime means the lifetime of the satnav not your life. It comes with maps of Australia and NZ when bought in one of these countries. If you want more than these maps you'll need to store them on a memory card. You'll have to download them to your computer and then install them to a memory card. You'll find details of how to do this at which tells you how to update your maps including how to set up a map on a memory card. I hope this answers your question.

Intel dh55tc how many RAM slots is there

Dear p_raveen8376, there are 4 RAM slots on Intel DH55TC board. But you have to use the slots systematically. You'll have to use those in pairs. Four slots are marked by separate colors (i.e. 2 in Blue & 2 in Ash Color) and demarketed as DIMM_0 & DIMM_1. First, you'll have to use pairs of DIMM_0 with same RAM (same frequency like 800 MHz or 1333 MHz or so on), preferably same make. Thereafter, if you like to upgrade, you can use rest pairs of slots with different RAM i.e. other frequency, or other make.

Hello. i have a hp pavilion5700 its quite old now for todays need so i was wondering if i could upgrade its video card, processor and ram my current processor is intel pentium 4 and ram is 512 i...

Video card is out of the question - it's specific to the motherboard, can't be replaced with anything else; the processor can be replaced , but only with one from the same generation - the speed gain will be minimal, not worth the effort.
The only thing that can be upgraded is the RAM : get 2 sticks of 1GB - you will see a sensible improvement.
