If you're using at least the 64 bit premium of vista, then it should be able to use 16 gigs. http://www.crucial.com/support/recognize_memory.aspx

BTW it has 2 ram dimms, so you will have to calculate with these 2.

In call of duty ghost do i need to buy 1 whole 8 gig of memory


You need to have 6 gigs of free dynamic ram.(Not including that used by the operating system and any other applications you have.

The way that memory is organised in a computer these days is usually in pairs or DRAM (dynamic random access memory) sticks which are matched. This allows the CPU to withdraw data from both memory sticks in the same clock cycle (DDR double data rate) which improves the over all speed of the processing.

So legal combinations over 4 gigs which will use the dual channel feature on your motherboard will probably be.

2 x 4 gigs sticks = 8 Gig DRAM
2 x 8 gig sticks = 16 Gig DRAM

Below is the minimum specification requirement.

Note: MINIMUM Faster CPU better graphics card and More ram is better.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better CPU Speed: Info RAM: 6 GB OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better Sound Card: Yes Free Disk Space: 40 GB

I have a Dell Optiplex GX620 with a 64-bit Intel chip, and 6 GB of RAM, and I can't install any 64 bit versions of Windows on it.


your ram may be bad but not fried so windows cant deyect it also may need to reset your ram aet in advanced setting ,although your system sjhould detect that and adjust so check system in control; panel see if its is matchiing ie .. if u put 4 gb ram it may say 3gb ,if it has 4 gb then yiur settings systems icon control panel double click avanced system settings click on it then click on advaced scroll down to virtual memory it should be for 4 bg. ram would read 4000 MB OR REAL CLOSE TO ADJUST IT,, AL;SO U MUST HAVE 64 BIT OS XP AND REINSTALL OS PLUS PICK 64 BIT DRIVERS FROM MANUFACTER OF PC TO RUN 64 BIT CANT HAVE 1/2 AND 1/2 [32 +64] DONT MESH FOR 64BIT...32 CAN HAVE BOTH NOT 64

  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

  • DVD-ROM drive

If you want to run Windows Vista on your PC, here's what it takes:

  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

  • 1 gigabyte (GB) of system memory (512 megabytes (MB) for Home Basic)

  • 40 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space (20 GB for Home Basic)

I want to add more RAM. Is it possible?? Worth it??


It Depends On How much ram you are running now. More ram is Always A good Thing.
However, The Amount of Installable Ram Depends On the Operating System you are running.

Windows XP, Vista, and 7 32 bit (x86) systems only except up to 4 gigs of ram. (Sometimes 3 1/2)
Windows XP, Vista, and 7 64 bit (x64) Systems will except up to 16 gigs of ram. (Some Beyond that)
If you are Unsure which System you are running,
1. Click on the Start Menu
2.Right Click on my Computer
3.Doube Left Click on Properties

On the Main Properties Page it should display
1. Which operating System you are running and Which bit it is (eiter 32 or 64)
2. How Much Memory (RAM) you are currently Running
3 and What Proccessor is Installed in your computer

I installed 4 Gig of RAM memory but only 3.25 shows up.\r\nis there a test I can run to see if the memory cards are working correctly? Thanks. Paul


It sounds like you are running a 32 bit operating system XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (32).
The 32 bit Operating Systems are only able to see and use about 3Gb of RAM. To use a greater amount you will need a 64 bit OS (either Windows XP/64 or Windows 7/64) or one of the open source 64 bit operating systems.

WHAT IS THE OS FOR A TOSHIBA A 105 LAPTOP IS IT 32 BIT OR 64 BIT


this computer is shipped with windows xp 32 bit, can be upgraded to vista. As for 32 or 64 bit?, the only difference you will see between them is if you have more than 3 gig of ram installed a 64 bit O/S will see and use all the ram, where a 32 bit O/S is limitted to 3gig of memory it can address.
Personally, I believe you will have a lot easier time finding the 32bit drivers for your laptop and printer. 64bit drivers for older hardware are sometimes very difficult to find. GO with 32bit on this laptop.

Asus notebook windows 7 totally frozen..."not responding" Can't even exit without holding power off.


This is due to the fact that your ASUS Eee PC 701 PC does not offer minimum System requirements to run windows 7

Microsoft has published their minimum specifications for a system running Windows 7
as
  • 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 GB RAM (32-bit) / 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available disk space (32-bit) / 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics processor with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

************
But I suggest following as min to run smoothly

  • A Dual Processor (AMD or Intel) – you can use a lower Celeron or Pentium Processor, but you will regret it

  • 2 GB RAM (operating memory) – you can use less, but you will regret it

  • 16 GB available disk space and another 20 to 30 GB if you plan on running applications

  • A Vista compatible graphics card (DirectX 9 graphics process with WDDM 1.0 or higher)

  • A Vista compatible sound card

  • Vista drivers for any other unique hardware you have on or connected to your computer

Brand new gateway m-6846 vista 64bit


The maximum amount of memory that your system can use is actually limited in two ways — not only is there a maximum amount of memory that your computer motherboard can accept, there is also a maximum amount of memory that your operating system (OS) can accept.

For instance, when you install 4GB of memory in a 32-bit Windows system (the most common version; 64-bit systems are typically used only by high-end users), your system will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB.
Relax, there isn't a problem with the memory. Windows allows for 4GB of memory to be addressed, but this isn't 100 percent the same as having 4GB of physical memory.

What happens is that some of the addressable memory (regardless of how much you have physically installed) is reserved for use by page files or by some of the devices that you are using, such as a graphics card, PCI card, integrated network connections, etc., so it's unavailable for use as normal main memory.

The amount of memory needed for these devices is calculated by your system at startup; if you haven't maxed out the memory in your system, it's invisible to you, and all your physical memory (the RAM that's installed) is available for use. However if you've maxed out the DRAM in your system, this amount will be deducted from your physical memory, so you can't use 100% of your DRAM.

The maximum memory limitation varies by operating system; for instance, the 4GB memory limitation doesn't exist in 64-bit versions of Windows.

Memory maximums for current Microsoft® Windows OSs include:

  • Windows XP Home: 4GB
  • Windows XP Professional: 4GB
  • Windows XP 32-bit: 4GB
  • Windows XP 64-bit: 128GB
  • Windows Vista Home Basic: 4GB
  • Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit: 8GB
  • Windows Vista Home Premium: 4GB
  • Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit: 16GB
  • Windows Vista Ultimate: 4GB
  • Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit: 128GB+
  • Windows Vista 32-bit: 4GB
  • Windows Vista 64-bit: 128GB+

It says board can take 4 gig of memory but back slots 2 big


If your MoBo supports 4 Gigs, Vista 32 bit will only utilize approximately 3.48GB, and XP 32 bit will only use 2GB, so unless you are running Vista 64 bit (which will use up to 8GB, if your MoBo will?), the OS isn't going to see but 2 to 3+ depending on which version of windows you're running,

As for the slots being too big, you are probably attempting to install the wrong RAM for your MoBo. Compare the RAM in question with what the MoBo manufacturer says is compatible.

Good luck, and I hope I helped you.
