Just looked it up, 512 is the max supported by this system.

Do you have the latest Bios upgrade?

You can upgrade a PC but in my experience it is far better and is more cost effective to purchase a faster PC. Here is what you do, save all your personal important information from it's hard drive onto a USB flash drive. Now sell this computer and then using the money that you would have used to upgrade it buy a new computer.

You don't want to go lower than a single core 2.4GHz with 512mb RAM. However I do reccomend an AMD computer system. See if you can afford an Athlon 2 X2 250/255 they are very good and don't cost very much. Of course you will need to purchase new components, either from a local computer shop or on the net.

If you want to try to increase the speed of your current PC then you will need to upgrade the RAM to at least 512mb, make sure it is DDR400. The next thing to upgrade is the CPU, I think it is socket 478 so it might fit a 2.4GHz socket 478 CPU must check CPU and mainboard is the same socket or it will not work.

GeForce 8400 upgrade problem


I would try two things: One pull the GeF 8400 out and boot as you normally did, install the drivers for the 8400. Then reinsert the Vid Card (8400) and when it looks for driver viola... If that fails:
Second if you can get in at all try the old F8 key on the boot up...and see if you can get in using SAFE MODE...and install your drivers from that point. Assuming the second set fails update the video driver using device manager.
That's a great vid card...good luck..leave a rating please.

Have Dell Optiplex GX 110 will only allow for 512MB Ram Max and 1.2 Gb Cpu. Is there a replacment board that will fit this chasis that will allow for upgrade of Ram to 1GB and CUP upgrade?


You would need to contact Dell about this as Dell does not use industry standard motherboards in their older computers. I hope this helps.
