Check out the web site or go into a retailer and ask, they should know and tell you. Most laptops now a days hold at least a gig and some up to 2 or more depending on how good it is and its intended purpose. Video cards on laptops are built in so get one with a good video card because its not upgradeable. Processors are the same way, i would suggeest a 2.0 MHz or better.

Also, hard drive space is good, get one with 80Gigs or more. The more of everything you get at purchase will save you lots in upgrading later becasue individual parts cost alot from retailers.

If this is for gaming, make sure to get twice as much power or more than what is windows minimum running requirements or else you will have problems.

Always see the laptop in person before buying and check it for fragile-ness, crappy placement of connectors, touchpads that go crazy when you lean on the keyboard to much, things like that. Having the earphone jack in the back is a pain when you want to use it, then you have wires tangled everywhere.

Hope this helps.

Can I clone a Windows XP hard drive from another computer and expect it to run on the Vostro 1000?


You can in a way, but you will need to download a lot of XP drivers from Dell to run XP on a Windows7 computer.
You can not just swipe out Windows7 for XP.

Hi to all, How can I upgrade my processor to a higher, I want to have a better speed, my current processor is mobile AMD sempron 1000


There's one faster CPU in that line (3600+), but it has a smaller cache - meaning it wouldn't be much if anything of an upgrade.
Maybe upgrade the memory, that would have a better return, if it will take anymore.
Put the funds toward a newer system.
Hope that helps you to save some cash.

My dell vostro 1000 won't turn on the green light


Try to do this: (Draining flea power)
1. Unplug the ac adapter (if connected)
2. Remove the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
4. Put back the battery and ac adapter
5. Turn it on

- check if you can now boot to windows, if not there could be a hardware problem and next step would be running some diagnostic test on the computer for hardware problem.

Update Dell Vostro 1000 BIOS now wont turn on, nothing on display


You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?

Dell Vostro 1000 won't turn on/no power at all


The power connector within the laptop maybe broken. Not sure about Dell's but many laptops have only solder points holding the internal power connector to the motherboard. With too much agitation, the internal power connector becomes loose and then broken.

More info will help, does a light show on the laptop when it is plugged in? Have you tried removing the battery and lettting the laptop sit for about 10 mins, without any power? Have you re-seated the ram?

These are all possibilities of the symptom you have.
Let me know and G'luck!
