My problem is that my laptop is too slow. OS Home Vista Basic. Memory was upgraded to 1GB. Now I want to upgrade the memory. Can this model be upgraded to 4GB. this means I will install two 2gb. Thanks.


I would suggest you not to install 4GB RAM on windows, keepp it to 2GB.
Use MAC or Linux instead, they have a performance also.
If you want to use 4GB RAM then you will have to switch to 64bit Windows, you should not use 4GB or moree on 32-bit Windows OS.

What controls memory capacity?


The maximum amount any computer will work on is 4 gigabytes. You may see some specialty models with 6GB but that is a waste of money because programmers write programs for a maximum of 4GB as that is the industry standard. The maximum memory capacity depends on the motherboard setup. For instance, any desktop can take up to 4 GB but some smaller laptops cannot. It depends on the company selling the product as they decide which motherboard to install. Netbooks, 7" to 10" screen can only hold 2 GB, while all 15" and above laptops can hold 4 GB. So basically 4GB max or less. Obviously 4GB will run faster than anything less. Memory is fairly cheap so always go with the 4GB. Second part of your question,manufacturers decide which motherboards go into which computers and the larger dealers like Dell, HP, Compaq, etc will always offer 4 GB. Inexpensive computers like Emachine cut cost by not spending the money for the best motherboards so they may only hold 2GB. Hope this answers your questions.

Number of Slots:
Slot 1 Slot 2 Normally you will find the 2 slots, one above the other.
Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300,DDR2 PC2-4200 with a maximum of 2GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory. Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules. Make sure that both are fully seated prior to powering up the laptop.

The maximum amount of memory that your system can use is actually limited in two ways — not only is there a maximum amount of memory that your computer motherboard can accept, there is also a maximum amount of memory that your operating system (OS) can accept.

For instance, when you install 4GB of memory in a 32-bit Windows system (the most common version; 64-bit systems are typically used only by high-end users), your system will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB.
Relax, there isn't a problem with the memory. Windows allows for 4GB of memory to be addressed, but this isn't 100 percent the same as having 4GB of physical memory.

What happens is that some of the addressable memory (regardless of how much you have physically installed) is reserved for use by page files or by some of the devices that you are using, such as a graphics card, PCI card, integrated network connections, etc., so it's unavailable for use as normal main memory.

The amount of memory needed for these devices is calculated by your system at startup; if you haven't maxed out the memory in your system, it's invisible to you, and all your physical memory (the RAM that's installed) is available for use. However if you've maxed out the DRAM in your system, this amount will be deducted from your physical memory, so you can't use 100% of your DRAM.

The maximum memory limitation varies by operating system; for instance, the 4GB memory limitation doesn't exist in 64-bit versions of Windows.

Memory maximums for current Microsoft® Windows OSs include:

  • Windows XP Home: 4GB
  • Windows XP Professional: 4GB
  • Windows XP 32-bit: 4GB
  • Windows XP 64-bit: 128GB
  • Windows Vista Home Basic: 4GB
  • Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit: 8GB
  • Windows Vista Home Premium: 4GB
  • Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit: 16GB
  • Windows Vista Ultimate: 4GB
  • Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit: 128GB+
  • Windows Vista 32-bit: 4GB
  • Windows Vista 64-bit: 128GB+
