As with most laptops, there are two memory slot. This laptop has 1GB in each. You need to remove one or both and replace with 2GB boards. The 2gb memory boards are around $50 or so. Changing memory is easy to do.
Replacing a disk is easy also, but you need to get your programs from the old disk to the new. That usually takes a local shop to do that. You may just want to buy a new computer instead of upgrading.

Why my hp is not able to run need for speed most wanted


From what I ca see you need to upgrade your video card. The software's minimum requirement for NVidia is a GeForce 8800GT or higher. The minimum for an ATI card is RADEON 3870. Your machine comes with wither an NVidia 8400GS or an ATI RADEON 2400.

I have aemachine w4620 with 80g hard drive and 1g memory, can i upgrade my hard driveand will it takemore memory?


Max memory is 2GB. The stock hard drive is an 80GB ATA/IDE type, 4200rpm - larger ones are available in 100G, 120G, 160G, 320G, and .. I believe 500G. So the answer is: both can be upgraded or, more precisely, replaced with higher capacities.

Samsung sp251n hard drive. Using as slave. Only 150GB identified in device manager but no pins inserted. Where do I put the pin? Can't find any manuals online


Your hard drive may have two partitions, the first partition configured as 150Gb and the remainding 100Gb partition may not be set up and formatted.
The jumper settings may be printed on the label on the hard drive.
No jumpers are required for a Slave drive.

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.

How much memory can you install onto a macbook I would like to upgrade to 1TB


Memory or hard drive, they are two VERY different things. Memory is used to store running programs only while the computer is on - is super fast - and gets erased when the computer shuts off because it requires electricity to maintain a state. A hard drive stores information long term.

That being said, memory can be upgraded to whatever the mother board supports, usually 8gb max these days (Good luck finding the memory chips to fit in there though). Most people will get two 2gb chips - as most motherboards have only two slots for memory. Some have more. You will need the correct speed of chips however that your motherboard supports. you can't use 10 year old chips in a modern computer, they aren't the same design.

The hard drive can be upgraded to 1tb, and more, and you can buy external hd's for more convenience.

Hard drive


jamesroland1,
You have a computer with a 40GB hard drive and you want to add another hard drive (150GB), is that correct? Not knowing the rest of your system age, setup and configuration makes it hard to know what you may encounter. If you can add more memory (RAM) it is always helpful to make applications work faster and multiple ones as well. You may want to add an external hard drive if you don't have the room or don't feel comfortable with opening the computer and installing an internal hard drive. If you want to replace the lower capacity drive, you need to reinstall the operating system on the drive and start from scratch.

I want to know if I can upgrade the harddrive and memory


Depending on the memory you already have you can install upto a maximum of 1GB 266MHZ DDR, and cannot see any reason for not being able to upgrade your hardrive for a bigger one, but be aware that the Operating system backup will probably be on a seperate partition on your current hardrive, unless you got an installation cd with your laptop.
