If the heading is correct on your post, Intel D845GBV motherboard, you have 2 memory slots that can hold up to 1GB in each. A 512MB will work with the 128MB. You need DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 modules for that board.

You can also increase the hard drive. The amount of RAM has no bearing on the hard drive size. I would suggest a 200GB to 250 GB drive. You need to make sure what interface (either SATA or IDE) that the motherboard has for the hard drive. I have not checked into the specs.

    After checking the specs, your motherboard only has IDE interface connectors so you need to make sure you purchase an IDE drive.



    BTW, here is a link for everything you will ever want to know about that board.

RAM chip sets


It is OK to mix chip (SODIMM) capacities in the 2 slots in your notebook.

The best system performance will be when you have 2 x 512MB but for now if you install 1 x 512MB, you could even leave the old chip in the other slot, it'll be fine.

How can i increase my ram in intel desktop board 815


Hey,

Ram can not be increased as it is a hardware component in the computer, you can install more ram or upgrade the current ram modules that are inside the computer.

Memory up grade and hard disk


Hi soulkid
Yes,you are are quite right in upgrading your memory or RAM from 512 to 1gb.As the applications nowadays are getting more and resource hungry.
For this you will have to have a expandable slot on your motherboard which most probably you possess.
And about doing it urself you should ask yourself .

Waiting for your fixya
