    A google ad'. for some software entitled 'Driver Magic', I downloaded and ran it. The result was a blue screen crash. I was not best pleased. I am sure that your company would not like to be associated with this sort of rubbish and will take some action to ensure that it ceases.

    Thnk you for the solution to my problem. Excellent result.

    hi

    not every motherboard or on board video is compatible with windows 8

    what windows was it running previously

    windows 8 was designed for 64 bit platforms which requires 4 gig of ram but you have to also take into account the other hardware components and there maximum configuration

    i have run win 8 on 2 gig of ram but it struggles with you tube downloads

    i upgraded the ram to 4 gig and run win xp win 7 and win 8.1 on the hard drive

    cheers

    Dell XPS 400 PC Desktop
    Installing RAM on a desktop computer is of moderate difficulty for most non-technical people. Before beginning any memory upgrade, make sure the proper RAM has been purchased. The Dell XPS 400 requires DDR2 RAM (240-pin DIMM).

    Preparing the Computer b> The computer must be unplugged before any work can be completed and the proper precautions must be taken, such as wearing an anti-static wristband. Also, replacing the RAM on a Dell machine could void its warranty. To install the new RAM, the case of the computer needs to be opened. Replacing the RAM b> The motherboard has four RAM slots. Each slot takes one stick of RAM (up to 1 GB per stick). The XPS 400 can utilize up to 4 GB of RAM. If adding RAM, put the new RAM in an empty slot. If replacing the RAM, take out the existing one and then put the new RAM into the machine. Important Notes b> While the Dell XPS 400 has four RAM slots, if only two sticks of RAM are to be used, they must be inserted into slots 1 and 3 or slots 2 and 4 for optimal performance. A single stick of RAM should be inserted into slot 1. Always put the largest ram module closest the CPU central processing unit.
    Start your computer Wait for Windows to load. Click on "My Computer" and select "Properties" using right-click in the Explorer window. This will open "Systems Properties." Click on the "General" tab. Here you can view the physical memory installed on your computer. The amount indicated is the total RAM installed on your computer. RAM is usually 32 MB, 64 MB or 128 MB in older PC versions. Newer PCs are usually equipped with 256 MB, 512 MB or even higher RAM.
    b>If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system. You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.

    I upgraded my gategay gt-5428 computer memory 1 gb to 2 gb but still runs with i gb, what i did wrong?


    Hello Erik,

    Are you absolutely certain that the new module is compatible with your system? Go into the BIOS and see if it is recognized there.

    Crucial shows that your computer takes DDR2 memory with support for DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400 speeds.

    Make sure it is not ECC memory. ECC is not compatible.

    If you are sure of the compatibility, I would try to install the old one by itself first and make sure the system boots. Then I would remove the old one and install the new one by itself. Try booting. If it doesn't work, you may have gotten a bad module. (It happens.)

    Just FYI, here is the crucial link for your computer:

    Hp says maximum memory is 2 x 512, yet memorystock and other sellers say I can go up to 2 x 1 gig. Is this safe?


    If the computer is a model a710n, the motherboard will take up to 2 GB of RAM. Full motherboard specs are here, and they'll tell you everything you need to know to get compatible memory.

    I have an old Hitachi Visiondesk 2520. I wanted


    Yes, many.

    That motherboard is from the "Windows 98" era, but Microsoft _has_ tested it with Windows 2000, and found that it is compatible.

    +-----------------------------

    The Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) contains products that have passed testing with Windows 2000.
    Not every computer and/or device has been tested in all possible configurations.
    Visit the Microsoft Windows Hardware Quality Labs web site at http://www.microsoft.com/hcl/ for the latest compatibility information and to download and install drivers for the hardware listed.
    +-----------------------------



    One eBay seller is offering RAM (PC100/PC133) for your motherboard:
    http://cgi.ebay.com.hk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220317703040

    So, your most-difficult part will be finding a "new" (or "previously-owned") motherboard that comes WITH a face-plate, e.g.,

    http://www.hitechlegion.com/images/stories/HowTo_BuildCustomPC/24.jpg

    that has the same "perimiter" dimensions as the face-plate connected to your current motherboard.

    So, you could try to find a much-older motherboard that is compatible with current RAM, or you could try an older motherboard, such as one with a Pentium 4 CPU, that takes DDR266/DDR333/DDR400 RAM, or you could try a not-so-old motherboard that takes 'DDR2' RAM.

    Newer motherboards will have integrated-sound, integrated-video, and integrated-networking, so that your current sound-card, video-card, and network-card won't be needed.

    Which graphics cards are compatible


    You can not use a PCI-E card. This mobo has one AGP slot and TWo PCI(not PCI-E) slots. I am assuming you have a Dell Optiplex GX260? It has the D845 series board. Goto Newegg.com and search for: AGP. They have a nice x1650pro agp card for cheap. I have the same board in one of my PC's

    Few questions about RAM memory?


    Solution:



    i)  LOW DENSITY modules have 100% compatiility with ALL systems and ALL chipsets.
        HIGH DENSITY modules only have 10% compatibility

        here compatablity means LOW DENSITY RAM are accepted by all system(100%)  or any make           system.. HIGH DENSITY RAM are accepted by 10% by only some system or computers...


    ii) in order to check system performance or amount of Computer RAM usage press the ctrl+alt+del
       simultaneously a new window(window task manager) will appear showing:

        CPU usage: showing the amount of CPU or processor utilized at that particular time.
        PF usage: showing the amount of RAM memory utilized at that particular time.
        Physical Memory: showing Total RAM Memory, Available Ram memory....

    iii) baiscally they are two types of RAM they are:

        DDR1:which is older one supported by older system  or older mother boards which is costlier
        DDR2: which is latest one supported by all new system or new mother boards which is less                         costlier

        DDR: double data rated ram......which will send data at a double rate compared to SD RAM

    iii) here color doesnt matter, these slots either support DDR1 or DDR2 but not both at a time
        
        DDR1 has 184 pins or gold plated pinssss... on the edge of the RAM
        DDR2 has 240 pins 

        so difference doesnot allow DDR2 to placed in DDR1 motherboards or vice versa...

    iv) it does have anything to do with no of chips on the RAM but they only differ whether it is DDR1 OR DDR 2(DDR2 are much faster than DDR1)

    NOTE: whatever may the the RAM, each RAM has FSB(called Frequency...) which determines the frequency of rate at which data is tranferred from RAM to processor(CPU)  usually in MHZ such as FSB 300, 400, 200 , 333...................

    more the FSB the faster data is transferred to the processor(CPU)

    dont worry even RAM with less FSB's work well with the processor....having 1 GB RAM or 2 GB RAM is engouh, it only matters with the speed of CPU ... but not RAM......
