Bios updates should only be done when absolutely necessary because, often, they run in problems and you then have no computer since your bios is now messed up. If you still want to do it get the upgrade bios from the mo bo manufacturer and use software that will also backup what you have in case of disaster. A word to the wise.
Firstly, you have to know that you can upgrade RAM as Double or Half of your pre-installed RAM. For example, like your pre-installed RAM is 256 MB, you can only upgrade RAM of capacity 128 MB or 512 MB.
Secondly, check your previous installed RAM's speed that is shown in Ghz. You can only upgrade RAM to its similar speed, otherwise you get slow performance of PC.
The only issue i can see is if your your ram has not been updated since leaving the factory, you will notice from the tables W7 requires a min of 1GIG and your machine leaves the factory with 256mb(dependant on country possible) so check your ram.
I run windows 7 on 2GB and its great, your machine will take 2GB.
The Samsung X05 was released 2004 and the NVIDIA Geforce 4 should be fine.
i would point out drivers and compatability but windows 7 so far is really good but driver support is crucial
hope this helps
Here is the requirements for Windows 7
Windows 7 minimum specs
1GB of RAM
16GB of drive space
DirectX 9-capable graphics card or integrated chip (true of most releases 2002 and after)
BELOW YOUR MACHINE SPEC

Hello, Try installing one module only. (You may have to try in first slot, and then if it does not work, in the second slot.) If the 1gb module is recognized install the second one. If all else fails, the modules may be incompatible with your motherboard, or 1gb exceeds the capacity of the slot.
You should check with the folks at Dell since whoever wrote their technical manuals for this machine can't do basic math. There are 2 memory slots and each can handle a maximum capacity of 512MB, yet they claim the maximum capacity for the machine is 2GB instead of 1GB. Using 512MB modules would probably work.
Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).
