    What are the proper settings for the minimum and maximum on the page file for a 1.25G memory?

  • chetock Nov 27, 2008

    Memory is installed correctly. Physical memory is still showing 256 of ram when it should now be showing a total of 1.25G of ram.

    I have an Inspiron 1200 which I updated to 1GB. I updated the bios to A07 but the 1GB memory is not recognized. The memory recognized is still 256MB.

    The memory I purchased is PC2700 DDR SDRAM SODIMMS. Specifically I purchased the Kingston KTC-PR266/IG.

    I do not know what to do next. Please help

    If the Bios or the OS is not seeing the memory, it will not report it.

    You need to check the memory which you installed. Make sure that it is seated correctly and that it is the correct type for your unit.

There are no settings, if the memory is the correct type and it is good, it will be recognised and you will be notified that the memory has changed.
Good Luck.

Are you referring to bios setting? (There isn't one ...it will either recognize the new ram and tell you how much it sees or it wont) sorry.

Does the laptop recognize your added memory?
When you open system properties what does it say in the general tab?
It will tell you right there how much ram is installed. :)

What setting is it that you want to change since there are a few that come to mind.
As long as paging file is set to "system managed paging file" then you should be ok
with that setting

How can I upgrade/improve the capabilities of my Inspiron 1200


The best and quickest improvement is to add more RAM. Add another 512 Mb of RAM. If you already have a 512 Mb of RAM module then add another 512 Mb RAM module. If your laptop has 2X256 Mb RAM modules then you need to remove these and insert 2X512 Mb RAM modules.
The reason why you have 504 Mb RAM is that the video card has grabbed 8Mb of RAM off the main memory.

Adding computer memory


The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

Pc computer slow


By saying " installed new programs " what did you mean ?
Reinstalling XP after you upgraded ?

You might also try a driver update program such as driver detective. Or Manually update all the drivers. I doubt the motherboard is going bad making your pc run slow.

Dell Inspiron 1100 won't read 512 Meg ram.


I had the same problem. I tried several brands of memory unsuccessfully, though they all guaranteed that their products would work with my machine. Finally, my brother (who works in IT) recommended that I go through The Upgrade Place (http://www.theupgradeplace.com/). Great price - less than half of what Dell charges - and the memory worked immediately upon installation.

When I told them that I had a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop, they said that my PC required proprietary memory (which is true). I paid with a credit card and received the part two days later.

Good luck,

KBS I NEED TO CHANGE THAT SETTING


The kbs is the speed of you internet connection, and cannot be changed unless you upgrade the connection speed or type of connection, through your internet provider. This will have nothing to do with your machine, it is perfectly capable of running at the high speed, but is only restricted by the connection. You might try a local wifi hotspot, such as a coffee shop with free internet. I know the local Starbucks here has a connection that is rated up to 1.2mbs, which is more than four times the speed you need for the upload.

Installing Memory


Hi

Yes, you can replace/upgrate the memory module under the keyboard.

Before you proceed, note that Dell Inspiron 2650 uses DDR200 3.3V SODIMM modules. Also, memory module capacities supported are 128MB and 256MB with a Maximum memory of 512MB. If the current memory installed is 128MB, you need to order 2x 256MB modules to replace/upgrade both memory slots. If the installed capacity is 256MB, you just need another 256MB for the slot underneath the laptop.

Check "Removing the Keyboard" for guide removing the keyboard to access the 2nd memory slot.

Read "Preparing to Work Inside the Computer" before committing to the above procedure.

Let me know how you get on.
