Well your board should be able to handle up to 8 gigs of ddr2 sdram. should have four memory ports. the more memory the better. don't know what processor you are using but if it's relatively new then shouldn't be any problems. vista is slow as it is so anything you can do to speed it up will help. oh it is always better not to mix and match brands, speeds etc when it comes to memory. if you expand be sure to purchase what you are already using or buy all new ones. will drastically reduce the potential for problems.

I hope this helped

How to install vista 64 bit over 32 bit i installed my 32bit version i didn`t relize that it only supports 4gb minus my video card=3gigs total memory, so do i have to reinstall my 64bit as a fresh install...


Yes. But Vista is full of problems. I suggest you use XP instead. Some computer manufacturers now offer XP for a small surcharge because they recognize that Vista is a lousy Operating system.

Hanging of laptop, when i open twoor more programs


Well, you need more RAM. 1 GB is not enough for Vista Ultimate. Contact Dell to upgrade and add a 2 GB memory module for a total of 3 GB. Apparently, you have 30 GB disk full with the Vista OS and software programs. At some point, I'd like to see you extend your partition for your 160 GB drive so that "C" is much larger than 40 GB. You'll need one-one assistance via FixYa.

Upgrade RAM on Windows Vista PC 32 bit


The repair function is on your Windows Vista Installation DVD. Put it in your computer and restart. It should boot the DVD. Next, you will see after clicking install Windows, a button in the corner of the screen that says repair. Choose that, and follow the instructions. Good luck!
