Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Memory cards my computer speed is slow only at 512 MB. I have been told that if I have 2 - 256 MB cards that these could be removed and replaced with 2- 500 MB cards to give me 1 G. Is this true and how much money would it cost to do this?

    Thanks for the input. I'm very computer illiterate but it seems like you might be saying that with an older system like this it might not be worth the effort or money put into it. I'm sure your answer is good - but a little over my head technically speaking!

Normally 512MB is a good configuration of Ram to work with Windows Xp Sp2 but you have clean your temporary files frequently

Increasing RAM will not give you much speed difference because first you have study the Motherboard Bus speed and the cache memory - Actual speed increase from those things and the compatibilty.

Changing Ram you have to determine what type of ram and its bus speed whether its a SD Ram or DDR1 or 2 I hope now days SD ram cost more because its outdated and DDR1 is also bit costly than DDR2.

I have 256 MB RAM which is slow, can i upgrade it to 512 MB RAM


Depends completely on what motherboard the computer has and what it supports, I could check on it if you have and brand and model of the computer, or from the motherboard.

Sure the prosessor speed doesn't affect the memory amount possible don't worry about that, just need to find out how much is supported and at what speed etc.

Thanks,
Ekse

    Nikon Coolpix 4600: Problem: It won't take any photos, it reads: THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED. The card is 128 MB. I purchased a new card: 2GB but it won't work also. My manual says to clean the contacts...


    1) Have you formatted the cards?

    2) Try the cards in the card reader in your computer to see if they can be read.

    3) Try the "switch off camera - remove and replace battery - switch on camera" trick with the original 128 Mb card in place. This will reset the camera's memory.

    4) Note the type of card is important - not all cards can be used in a camera (especially some of the latest bigger ones) - check the type of cards supported by your camera.

    I found this at the Nikon USA site (note that the 2 GB card is not listed - as said "Cards are not all the same" and use different drivers to operate them):

    Question Which Secure Digital Cards are approved for use in the Coolpix 4600/5600? trnsp.gif Answer The Nikon Quality Department has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 4600/5600:

    SD memory cards:
    SanDisk 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB, 512MB*, 1 GB
    Panasonic 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB*,1 GB
    Toshiba 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 128 MB*, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB

    *High speed type of 10 MB/s or over

    Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation. Check with the manufacturer of the third-
    party card for compatibility information. Nikon recommends keeping one of the approved cards available for troubleshooting.

    hi ,

    u can go for max512 mb..dont go 1 gb as this will hamper the speed of ur mobile..& if u switch to 512 mb..do try to keep all the stuff in memory card rather than sim memory..transfer mostly all the things from phone memory to mem card.This will sort the speed problem of ur mobile
