    the 620 supports the higher speed but the 520 which you have does not support 667 highest you can go is 533.

  • Ekse Jan 31, 2009

    The link given is for 620, not 520. Its a diffrent desktop computer.

  • Slots:
    4 (2 banks of 2)


  • Standard Memory:
    512MB removable

    • If you are really using Dell Optiplex GX520 System You will not be able to use 667Mhz DDr2 on it, 533 is the fastest supported, the 667 memory might work at 533 speed.


  • Ekse Feb 01, 2009

    Hi again

    Please confirm, is your desktop a GX520?

  • Ekse Feb 02, 2009

    When you turn the computer on, does it really state that you have 4GB of Ram Runing at 667MHZ?

  • Ekse Feb 02, 2009

    Are you ******* with me? Dell documents clearly state that this GX520 Supports 2 DDR2 modules at speeds 400 and 533mhz up to 2GB.

    GX620 on the other hand supports up to 4GB.

    The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start


    Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

    What is the difference between windows 7 editions: starter, home basics, home premium,ultimate, professional,interprice?what is the difference between service pack 1 & 2???pc


    Since October 31, 2013, Windows 7 is no longer available in retail (except for the Professional edition preinstalled):[6]
    Windows 7 Starter Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. It is only available in a 32-bit version and does not include the Windows Aero theme. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict users of this edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.[7]This edition was available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.[1][8][9] Windows 7 Home Basic Windows 7 Home Basic was available in "emerging markets", in 141 different countries.[10] Some Windows Aero options are excluded along with several new features.[1] Home Basic, along with other editions sold in emerging markets, include geographical activation restriction, which requires users to activate Windows within a certain region or country.[11] Windows 7 Home Premium This edition contains features aimed at the home market segment, such as Windows Media Center, Windows Aero and multi-touch support.[12] Windows 7 Professional This edition is targeted towards enthusiasts and small-business users.[1] It includes all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, and adds the ability to participate in a Windows Server domain.[1] Additional features include support for up to 192 GB of Random-access memory (increased from 16 GB),[13] operating as a Remote Desktop server, location aware printing, backup to a network location, Encrypting File System, Presentation Mode, Software Restriction Policies (but not the extra management features of AppLocker) and Windows XP Mode.[1] Windows 7 Enterprise This edition targeted the enterprise segment of the market and was sold through volume licensing to companies which have a Software Assurance contract with Microsoft.[1] Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface(MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIX application support.[1] Not available through retail or OEMchannels, this edition is distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA).[1] As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the operating of diskless nodes (diskless PCs) and activation via VLK.[14] Windows 7 Ultimate Windows 7 Ultimate contains the same features as Windows 7 Enterprise, but unlike the Enterprise edition, it was available to home users on an individual license basis.[1] Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional users are able to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for a fee using Windows Anytime Upgrade if they wish to do so.[1] Unlike Windows Vista Ultimate, the Windows 7 Ultimate edition does not include the Windows Ultimate Extras feature or any exclusive features as Microsoft had stated.[1] All editions will receive Mainstream Support (new features and bug fixes) until January 2015 and Extended Support (security updates) until January 2020.[15]

    How do i turn off the HDD


    What happens when entering the sleep mode is the drives will be turned off and the present state will be kept in memory until awakened. While the system is active the power scheme will prevent the drives from idling down after so many minutes with the never turn off setting applied.

    With the turn off drives after the default 20minutes of inactivity that doesn't mean all drives turn off at the exact same time. I've never come across any reference for changing the power plan option for individual drives. But I can point you at the guide for the power plan settings with one instruction on drive settings to apply prior to entering the sleep mode.



    hope that helps if not let someone here know.

    How to enable bluetooth


    Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
    Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
    Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

    If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

    If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

    This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

    See this Windows web page for more information.
    Set up Bluetooth enabled device

    I will respond to any additional questions you have.

    hey roger,

    You will need to check your outgoing smtp settings in yahoo. Below is the information to set this up.
    1) Yahoo! Mail Settings (if allowed)

    Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 110)
    Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)

    2) Yahoo! Mail Plus email server settings

    How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?


    Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

    Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

    Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

    I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!
