    should have checked that before i made the change,thanks again

    Same problem. I upgraded from four 512MB DIMMs to four 1GB DIMMs. The BIOS recognizes 4GB, but Windows XP only recognizes 2GB. drlalitv's answer indicates s_griffey should have shown at least 4 of the 8GB he installed.

Vram is 256 mb but dedicated is 64 mb and shared is 192mb . how do i change it.. no option in bios also. Sony vgn n220e


You should not change this. Laptops have small video chips and often depend on "shared" memory to achieve good performance without overheating. Basically, the video processor borrows some of your installed RAM memory. Also, your laptop may have been supplied to you with less total RAM memory than the maximum and you can add more memory. In Windows, click on Start then right-click on Computer and select Properties. In the Properties window you can read how much total memory is installed. 2GB (2048MB) is a desrirable amount for Windows XP. Windows Vista and Windows 7 can benefit by having total 4GB of RAM memory. Check your Sony user manual for instructions on adding more memory. Basically, you turn off the laptop, remove the battery pack and unscrew a small cover on the bottom of the laptop to access the memory slots. Usually, there are 2 slots here. Ideally, you should install a matched pair of memory modules (a "kit") for peak performance. However, quantity of memory is more important than having matched modules, so if one slot is occupied and the other slot is empty you may simply buy one more module and install it in the empty slot.

Ram cards


Hello,

Make sure that when you populate the memory slots that you are using like memory cards per memory bank set. Example: A1 and A2 consist of one blue and one beige slot. Use a 2GB card in one and a 2GB card in the next one. Starting with A1, use your 2GB memory cards first and then the 1GB cards. Once complete, reboot your system and enter into the BIOS to verify the total 12GB are being "seen" by the system.

Also, consider your os. If you are running Windows Vista 64 bit, Windows 7... they will only see 8GB max. OS like Windows server xxxx will be able to see all memory avaliable to the unit.

Good Luck

From what I can tell the Dell Precision Workstation 670 does support over 4GB of RAM. However when you have over 4GB of RAM installed in the system you have to have the Memory Cooling Shroud connected to keep the memory cool. Also this is only shipped out when the system is ordered with over 4GB of RAM originally. If you do not have this part you can order it from Dell buy calling 877-671-3355.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

What is the max ram speed my pc can take


According to some research, your desktop has 4 RAM slots available. The total maximum RAM your desktop can hold is 2GB (2048MB). Furthermore, each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB (1024) but cannot exceed the 2GB total.
This means you can theoretically install 2 x 1GB RAM DIMMS in 2 RAM slots or 4 x 512MB RAM DIMMS. Both will meet the desktops 2GB limitation.
The RAM specifications for your desktop are as follows:
RAM Limit: 2GB (2048MB) RAM Slot Type: SO-DIMM RAM Type: DDR1 (not DDR2 or DDR3) RAM Speed: PC3200/DDR400 ECC Type: Non-ECC
TIP: The RAM is DDR which means that while you can install them as singles (single-channel mode), the system will see a speed benefit from installing them as matched pairs (dual-channel mode).

Want to upgrade memory to 2 GB. Desktop will not post up with 2x1GB cards. Every 2-3 seconds it makes a sound/tone. The fans would turn on but there is no signal to the monitor. However, it will post up...


There is no reset just because you added memory.

If you have 2- 1GB sticks, try both , one at a time.

Your system spec's and manual tell nothing which dimm banks are suppose to be used , and if you can install 2-1GB sticks,
all it says is it can handle 2GB.

Now it says 512MB, sticks, this could mean you can only use 4-512MB sticks to get too 2GB,.

Now it does not tell which dimms are used if you have 2-1GB sticks,

You have 4 slots, the first two and the second two, most times, you either use the second bank of each pair, or the first slot of each pair,
but as I said, your system does not say.

So you can try both ways and see if one of them work.

Sorry I can't be of more help,but you system has a poor manual
on memory placement.

If they are not a matched pair it will not work. If you have two sets of matched pairs. Each pair will have to go into the right pairing slot. Example one set you go in slots 0 and 2 and the other in slots 1 and 3. If you have stickers on the memory sticks look for a group of numbers and letters one group will match it's mate.
