I have 512 K memory chip ,can I add this to my travelmate 6492


I do not know your specific model of laptop, but if the above specifications are accurate, then most likely not. Most laptops have two DIMM ports, where you place the RAM. This laptop probably has two 1gigabyte pieces already installed. This means to add yours, you must remove one and replace it, thereby decreasing your RAM to 1.5gigabyte total. Now under the rare possibility that your computer has a single 2 gigabyte RAM installed, then yes you can really easily. Just open up the panel on the back with the RAM inside and check. If only one is installed, then install the other (you can use google search to find the exact process), and your computer will be ready to go. I hope this helps, -Robert

How can I upgrade/improve the capabilities of my Inspiron 1200


The best and quickest improvement is to add more RAM. Add another 512 Mb of RAM. If you already have a 512 Mb of RAM module then add another 512 Mb RAM module. If your laptop has 2X256 Mb RAM modules then you need to remove these and insert 2X512 Mb RAM modules.
The reason why you have 504 Mb RAM is that the video card has grabbed 8Mb of RAM off the main memory.

Computer running very slow


Hello

Ok, firstly, the ram will not extend the life of your laptop, it will only give a slight increase in the process speed of your laptop, depending on how much you add.

You can buy the ram modules you need at any computer hardware store, they will instruct you on the best prices and how to install it. You can also try to buy it online(Ebay) where you will somwtimes get a better deal.

Kind regards

I currently have just 256mps of memory ram on my dell dimension 2400. i want to upgrade. my manual says the maxium is 1024 mbs. can i install 1gb of ram or should i get 512 mbs? i have windows xp os. thank...


1024 is 1 gig of ram. Some older motherboards require you to put in ram in pairs but I don't think your system is one of those but if you have manual or can download manual you should check to be sure. If you don't need a pair then yes you can remove the 256 meg stick and add a 1 gig stick or you can put in 2 512 meg sticks. Should run a lot better as windows recommends at least 512 megs of ram.

Game not working due to less video memory


Restart your computer and your friend's computer, at the same time. Press <DEL> to enter BIOS-setup on each computer.
Do both computers show _exactly_ the same amount of RAM?
One BIOS-setting may allow you to "dedicate" some of the RAM to be used for "video-memory". Do both computers show the same amount of "dedicated" RAM?

    Boot up


    ok from the symptoms you are describing your issue is low ram. If when you finally get it to boot up go to the start menu and right click on Computer or my computer. Then go to properties and tell me what the ram size is. If it is 512 mb or lower you need to increase the ram size. If this is so let me know and I will help you from there. Take care .. Mark
