Installing memory couldn't be easier! (Just make sure you have the right sort for you particular computer)

Turn off computer and UNPLUG from mains.

Open the case to expose the motherboard.

(Ideally, before you do anything else you should make sure you are wearing an earthing wristband to prevent any possible damage to your PC from static discharge. Having said that, I've changed loads of memory in the past without wearing one and have never had a problem, but you have been warned!)

Locate the slots that your memory goes into - This will be fairly easy because they won't fit into anything else! Insert the memory cards and make sure they are fully locked home.

Put the case back on, plug it in and turn it on.

And that is it! Simple! The PC will automatically recognise the new memory - There are no settings that you need to change.

Good luck!

Matt.

How to upgrade the video card?


You will have to add a new card to the motherboard. Open the cover and insert the new card in a slot and close the cover. Run Windows. Run the driver CD of the new card to install the drivers . From Control Panel->System->HW->Device Manager select the old card and disable it. Also check if the new card shows. Reboot the computer and connect the video cable to the new card. Your new card is functional now. Go to Control Panel->Display->Settings and configure Colors and Resolution of the new card.

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.

I want to upgrade the standard 512mb RAM to 2GB. once installed do I just restart the computer or do I need to do something to allow the computer to recognize the new RAM?


Hi,

You should be fine to just turn the computer on straight away as soon as you have installed your new RAM. The computer will recognize the new upgrade straight away provided you have got memory that is compatible with the desktop computer.

When you upgrade the RAM take the old RAM out and make sure your new RAM runs at the same speed as your old RAM.

From what i can remember the maximum RAM speed that an HP pavilion supports is 400MHz although it could well be 333MHz.

The RAM that's installed in the desktop at this moment in time will have the speed on it so you check with that.


Regards.

I added 2 mb memory to my 2 mb dell dimension c521 but it only shows 3.25 mb memory on my desktop when it should be 4.00


This is normal. You need a 64bit Windows if you want to see a bit more. The graphics can take up quite a bit of memory space.

Upgrade problems


Your system comes stock with one stick of DDR2 (512 MB), which means that it is _ not_ dual channel DDR2 memory as dual channel DDR2 must be installed in matched pairs. Try to exchange the new memory for 2G of some single channel DDR2.

Trying to upgrade RAM - won't boot after new RAM installed


Install the RAM on memory slot and Switch on your system and go to BIOS settings. There you can check whether your RAM is working properly or not. If it shows no memory installed then the RAM Chip may be damaged.
