My First RAM Upgrade-Any Tips

\015 Greetings,\015\012I am about to do my first RAM upgrade. I am definitely not a computer whiz so just recently I learnt there are at least 3 types of RAM.\015\012My type is DDR. I have an Acer Aspire with a Celeron D Intel processor (somehow is 2.8 GHz which I have heard is good), Ati graphics but only 256MB of RAM. I bought a generic brand of RAM today (1GB) but I don't know whether it is suited totally or not. I ran the cpuz.exe program from the internet and found the RAM speed is 200MHz. The RAM I bought today was 400MHz and my friend said it would run at the lower speed of 200MHz.\015\012\015\012When I take the cover off my computer, is there anything special I should do or avoid? The cpuz.exe program seemed to suggest the RAM was not dualchannel and that there were only 2 slots for the RAM sticks.\015\012\015\012Hope you can help,\015\012Thanks a lot,\015\012MarkI was wondering if you can tell me what are the ram upgrade compatible for the PC-MC24 SHARP NOTEBOOK. I am trying to upgrade it.\015

Answers :

Make sure you remove the battery before removing or inserting the ram :)

No worries about it not being dual channel as most laptop arent.

DDr (double data rate) ram runs at 200MHz but is actually 400 one the double data rate is applied so they are one and the same :)

I hope its a sodimm stick of ram that you bought? They are about 3i inches long rather than 6 like desktop ram?

No you don't have to install a 64 bit OS. Only if you install over 3 gigs you MUST install a 64 bit operating system. 800MHZ is fine it will just back down to 667MHZ. your 32bit windows OS will see up to 3 gigs (minus graphics card memory). SO 2 gigs ... Dell Dimension 9150 (DIM915MIN) PC Desktop
