OS Upgrade Issue

I have 3Gbs memory but PC is just as slow, although it is configured correctly. I would like to upgrade using OEM Vista (32 or 63 bit?) but not sure if I am Vista ready? Currently running Xp Professional

Re: OS Upgrade Issue

Stick with XP. I bought a laptop that had Vista in it, and it runs and performs more faster with Win Xp Pro. It was slower and too confusing with Vista.

I want to upgrade my ram for my pc...atmost to how much i can upgrade and in each slot individually how much capacity of ram it supports motherboard is 915glvg

i would like to inform you that *********** board supports upto 4 gb ram and 2 gb in 2 slots will be the best combination but depends on the OS you are using if its 32 bit XP or Vista it wont accept more than 3 gb so if you wish to use your system in full throttle mode upgrade you r OS to 64 bit XP or Vista and enjoy all 4gb standards that you actually wish to but even 3 gb is like playing with wild fire that will be really too fast processing speed and thrilling performance that you expect.

thanks and regards
kindly rate this solution

My pc is new but slow??HELP

Max out the ram, if possible, or at least increase it to 1Gb or better.(Go to to use their scanner or memory advisor to see what's possible for your system.) Make sure virtual memory &/or swap files are set up correctly. Use the system configuration utility to see what's running at every startup, and use the task manager to see what processes are running in the background.
Minimize the number of applications that run at startup, deselect unnecessary services and avoid security suites and other AV programs that may be resource hogs, sticking with reliable but lighter apps like Eset's NOD32, etc.
You don't mention whether you're on xp or vista, but go to MS's help and how-to site and search performance for your OS, and you'll get access to a wealth of information about how to tweak your setup to make the most of it's ram.
If you set it up correctly, take out the trash, (keep temp files from growing too large, etc), keep it defragged, and minimize the number of nonessential programs installed into memory, you'll have plenty of speed to keep things humming along.
See useful links here and here and here and here for xp or here for vista

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Upgrade for NEC COMPUTERS INTERNATIONAL MS-7168 1.0 mobo

There is no limit to what you can upgrade your CPU too, although your mainboard has socket 939, so your CPU should be the same.

I cannot advise you wether or not it would make your PC faster, for that I need to have more specs and the kind of thing you use th PC for. (video-editing/games/casual)

I hope this helps,

Memory upgrade

The RAM limit depends on the OS, for example XP and vista 32-bit can only use 4GB max. you must check the current RAM you have to see if its DDR or DDR2, just take that to your local tech and then he/she/they will let you know. Then just buy some more RAM. **WARNING** you cannot use DDR2 in a DDR motherboard and vice versa

Gigabyte GA-8IGX Motherboard memory upgrade

If you bay DDR 400 it will slow itself down to 266 automatically. I've seen a very few cases where it didn't work because of voltage differences but that is very rare and usually with really cheap OEM motherboards, your Gigabyte should be safe.

Asus M2N-MX Motherboard 4gb Ram wont work

I had the same problem and ASUS tech support was of no help. I did however find the culpret in the BIOS setup. Go to Advanced, Chipset, NorthBridge Chipset, and Memory Configuration. Set the Bank Interleaving to Disabled and save the settings. Check these settings also while you are there:
Channel Interleaving = Auto
Enable clock to all DIMMS = Disabled
Memory Tristate = Disabled
Memory Hole = Enabled
Unganged Mode = Enabled
Power Down Enable = Enabled
Power Down Mode = Channel
