Question about Samsung Computers & Internet
I want to upgrade my memory.If I add 160GB harddisk to my already existing 40GB,will I get 200GB or less.Also do all the drives(C:,D:,E:,F:) need formatting.Also do I need to upgrade my RAM.Currently it is 256MB.If I were to upgrade it to 1GB what exactly happens after upgrading....???????Do I get 1GB+256MB or just 1GB?
Hello Kevin Shaggy...
Let me see if I can help you out a bit...
Adding a 160gb to a 40gb does give you 200gb. BUT!!! you will loose a little bit on each one after formatting the harddrive. The new drive will wind up being about 157 or 159gb give or take a little.
ANY harddrive partition, whether it is a c:, d:, etc...you DO have to format EACH drive letter.
If you partition your 160gb harddrive into 2 parts, (2) 80gb drives, then they would get two drive letters and both of them get formatted.
IF the 40gb drive is C: then the new 160gb partitioned in half would be D: & E:.
CDROM Drive would be F: and so on....
Floppy Drives, CDrom Drives, DVD Drives, you do not have to format like a hard drive...
If you add a 1gb stick of memory to your existing 256mb stick of memory then you WOULD have 1gb + 256mb. If you remove the 256mb and just add 1gb, then you would just have 1gb.
