Well i think you could get away with 120 gigs. if you go over that you should update your bios and run a utility like Big Drive Enable--

there are others out there though.

What is the maximum addressable disk size for a Dell Dimension 2350? I currently have a 120 gb drive partitioned in thirds (40 gb each) that I would like to change to 2 * 60 gb.


depending on what space you have free is your max, you can use any size you like but again it depends on what is your maximun disk size. hope this helps in some way.. for the size you have now 120 gb, u need at least 10 gigs for windows and programmes to install. so 110 is your max you can play with i think.

What is the maximum i can upgrade this computer,ram and hard drive


Okay your computer can hold a maximum of 3GB of RAM. The RAM must be PC- 133, NON-ECC, UNBUFFERED, SDRAM, DIM memory in order for it to be compatible with your computer. Also you can stick any size hard drive into your computer. **WARNING** IF YOU ATTEMPT TO OPEN YOUR COMPUTER MAKE SURE YOU ARE WEARING AN ESD BRACELET AS TO ENSURE THAT YOU DON'T DESTROY YOUR SYSTEM. ALSO IF YOU CHANGE YOUR HARD DRIVE YOU WILL NEED TO BACK UP ALL OF YOUR INFORMATION TO THAT HARD DRIVE IF YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS IT!!! If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

    Ram upgrade


    In most cases if you put of not thesame capacity in any computer later will create further problems. it can damage the other memory or both and the worse is when also the motherboard will also damage.

    That is why im telling you this. Please prevent inserting memory of two or three different capacity. You should not do that.

    You should select etheir use all 256mb or all 512mb or all 1gb.

    in the T4200 since max. is 1.5gb, either use 3-512mb if can carry the maximum if not , then use only 2-512mb.

    in T3624 since max is 2GB. You can try 2-1gb if can carry the maximum if not, use only 1-1gb.

    Note:
    You can use or inserting at different capacity but is at your own risk. "

    Ps. does no matter either you put smaller or bigger in first slot.
