Kind of like with hard drives the amount shown is never the exactly full amount cause when it comes to hard drive space some of it is taken up for creating the partition.

When it comes to memory some of it is taken up for the system to run, boot up, etc. So as long as its close then everything is fine.

    They are saying 2GB is the max cause each slot supposedly can only read 1GB each.

    As far as why it can read higher then that I would think because its still DDR2 memory and the bus speed of the memory is the same so thats why it can recognize it.

    Keep something in mind though, even though it is recognizing it you need to be on the lookout for any kind of weird lockups, blue screens of death, etc.

    As long as your not getting those then I say take a advantage of the extra Ram and be happy.

    Please rate me when you get the chance and hope the rest of the week is a good one.

I have desktop computer with celeron processor CPU 240 GHz and 512 MB ram with 40 GB HArd disk.. I see my hard disk encountered some problem and planning to by new hard disk ..which is best for me and the...


Hi ,
I assume you are under Windows XP but this will also work under Windows 7 32 bit .
You can insert a 100GB HDD without any problem . A higher capacity is risky with your type of machine and could lead to a fatal read error , meaning you couldn't boot your unit anymore .
Under a 32 bit XP system , 2GB ram is the max.
I don't recommend changing the processor with the motherboard , you could encounter conflictual issues with the rest of the unit .
Buy yourself a new pc equiped with a I5 or better with a I7 processor running under W 7 64-bit is the solution but they still are expensive .
Best regards .

Can I do a memory upgrade on Sony VGC -LS 37E?


the specs for your computer, it states that it is equipped with 2gb of memory 2x1gb and max at 2gb, so I doubt that any higher memory upgrade installed would work, or else it would cause your system to crash or even damage it.

Radeon 9550 + AGP issues on MSI KT4V


First of all, why do you bother to change all these spec? Secondly, since your screen flicked, I would suggest you just leave them like that. Your PC is just as old as mine, don't mess around with it too much.
