Your boad uses "shared video" which means it dosen't have a seperate video card, it is built into the motherboard. By adding ram to the board you will be boosting the available amount of memory available to the system in general, which will give you a boost. I believe your board holds more ram than you currentlly have, but you won't see a huge difference. You would need a PCIE video card for that, and I saw one at comp usa geforce 8500 on sale for $35 yesterday which is half price, so that may be a better idea, good luck

Yes. You can go ahead and add 1024 more. But my advise is to really think if you really need that high configuration.

Why there is 1024 bites in 1kilo bite... ?

because it is derived from binary base system and the data in the memory chip is either 0 or 1 for each bit. The memory is actually bytes this depends on the data bus used 8 bits = 1 byte on an 8 bit data bus. 16 bits - 1 byte on a 16 bit memory data bus.
each lot of bits being bytes sits at an address. So 1 kilo byte of memory is stored in 1024 memory addresses. this uses 10 address lines. If you add one more address line 2^11 you get 2048 memory stores . As the 11 th bit can be 1 or 0 but allows access to another 1024 memory addresses.

  • 2 ^0 =1
  • 2^1 =2
  • 2^2 = 4
  • 2^3 = 8
  • 2^4 = 16
  • 2^5 =32
  • 2^6 = 64
  • 2^7 =128
  • 2^8 =256
  • 2^9 =512
  • 2^10 = 1024 = 1 kb

Which of the next three terms in the progression 1,4,16,...?

The next 3 terms in that sequence are potentially:

64, 256, 1024.

Based upon the following logic:

1^2 = 1
2^2 = 4
4^2 = 16
8^2 = 64
16^2 = 256
32^2 = 1024

I hope that helps.

My monitor gives 16-bit color at 640x480, but will only offer 256 colors at 1024x768 -- and only displays 16 colors when I select that... In order to access resolution options, I have to go into Advanced...

The monitor has no influence here - something is wrong with your video card: either its driver is missing (or corrupted) or the video chip has failed.
Uninstall all the drivers for the video(except the generic VGA one), from Programs and Device Manager
and reboot several times then go to Dell
select your pc and get the correct driver.
If that doesn't fixes it then the video chip has failed, you will need to buy a new video card.

I have AMD Sempron 140 on ASUS M2N68-AM SE2 motherboard, Strontium 1GB PC800 DDR2 RAM. But in system properties, the RAM is showing as 768 MB instead of 1024 MB (WinXP 32 bit). The dealer is saying the RAM...

Yes the dealer is correct that the 256 MB of your RAM is allocated to the video card of this computer since the unit has a built in NVIDIA GeForce 7025 Shared video memory (UMA)that uses 256 MB of your RAM , so if you like to maximize the use of your RAM you need to install a expansion video card.

I currently have just 256mps of memory ram on my dell dimension 2400. i want to upgrade. my manual says the maxium is 1024 mbs. can i install 1gb of ram or should i get 512 mbs? i have windows xp os. thank...

1024 is 1 gig of ram. Some older motherboards require you to put in ram in pairs but I don't think your system is one of those but if you have manual or can download manual you should check to be sure. If you don't need a pair then yes you can remove the 256 meg stick and add a 1 gig stick or you can put in 2 512 meg sticks. Should run a lot better as windows recommends at least 512 megs of ram.

Why do my toshiba satellite only show 191 of ram when i have a 256 ram installed

There is nothing wrong. Your RAM may be special RAM that the computer uses some of the memory for something else.

Frustratingly slow

You should bumb your memory from 256 to at least 512, and better yet if at 1024.
