I recently purchased a T480 Laptop with 500 GB Hard Drive and 16GB Optane Memory. I would like to upgrade to a 1 or 2 TB Hard Drive. It's my first time upgrading a hard drive, and I have searched how to do that, but I would like to make sure there isn't anything I should do differently with Laptop using Optane Memory. Should I disable that first, or can I follow the instructions to clone and swap the hard drive without disabling first? Thanks for the help.

6 months ago,i upgraded memory from the factory installed 64 to 256. It works,etc.

Is there any additional tweaking/ajustments i can do? i read something with virtual memory setting could be done for one thing.
 

A:After upgrading memory,its works,Virtual memory Tweaking Now?

Unless you have Win95 you likely donít want to go messing with your virtual memory. And even in that case it is the vcache you would be more interested in tweaking. Win98 and higher handles memory well.

If you watch your system monitor and are sure you arenít using your virtual memory you might do the ConservativeSwapfileUsage=1 INI tweak. Unless you are doing graphics, video editing or something RAM intensive you likely arenít using the virtual memory and the tweak wonít slow your computer. It doesnít speed it up, it just stops needless writes to the hard drive during idle time. Information if you want to do that: http://www.aumha.org/a/memmgmt.htm

Donít let anyone talk you into Cacheman or any of those Mem/RAM/Turbo/Boost type programs. They were written for Win95 and counterproductive in anything since.

Alright, I've had my computer for a few years. All I've done to it is upgrade to 64-bit windows 7 and add a secondary hard drive. I feel like it is time to upgrade the RAM and primary hard disk.

Memory
According to the specs for my computer, the max RAM it can support is 4GB. It came with 2x 1GB sticks and 2x512MB. If i was taking it to the max, that would mean replacing the 512 with additional 1GB. That being said, memorystock's website says that my computer can handle a max of 8GB. I'm not sure if I want to spend that money now, but it would make me consider buying 2GB sticks. By the way, my motherboard (thanks Everest!) is an Intel D975XBG (Gateway OEM).

Hard Drive
I currently have a 500GB Seagate Barracuda (7200 RPM) as my primary, and the 1TB version as my secondary hard drive. I'm considering keeping the secondary drive, and replacing the 500GB one with a smaller 80 or 160GB SSD. Any advice on choosing one would be great.
Final questions: My secondary seagate hd has a 32MB cache and 3 gb/s SATA interface. Would it benefit me much to upgrade it to something like the WD Caviar Green or Black? I honestly don't know that much about how much the transfer rates or cache sizes would affect me in gaming and such.

Thanks guys...I wouldn't consider myself completely computer illiterate, but I clearly need some help.

Here's the scenerio - Say you have a server that currently has 6GB of memory and you want to upgrade to 16GB.

What information do you need in order to determine how much you need to purchase? How do you calculate this?

If additional information is needed, let me know.

You'll need to look that information up in your motherboard book.

So, my question is, Will it run fine and will give me the same power as 1GB ram installed alone, or I have to take out the 2X256DDR rams and intall either 2X512DDR rams or just only 1GB DDR ram.

A:Upgrading Memory(RAM)

You should be able to run the 512 with the 2x256 with no problems. I would check the latency of the RAM to verify they all match. Latency is usually denoted in this format 2.5-3-3-5. I would stick with the same manufacturer if possible. Only real way to tell if it is going to work is to try it and see and browse as many forums as you can to see if anyone else has had issues with those brands and sizes...

I thought I'd share some helpful information to help start the forums!  Upgrading Memory To upgrade memory on HP and Compaq "desktop-style" computers, you really only need to know three things:1) What type of memory your computer needs.2) How many memory slots are available and if you have any that are already open.3) What is the maximum amount of memory you can add.To find the maximum amount you can add, find the maximum memory that your motherboard can handle (4 GB, 8 GB, etc...). You can find this information on your product's motherboard specification on the HP Web site. You also need to know the maximum your operating system can use. For example, 32-bit versions of Windows will only be able to use about 3.5 Gigabytes (of 4 GB). This is true of any operating system (that I know of). 64-bit versions can use 8 GBs or more depending on their edition (Windows 7 Ultimate can go clear up to 192 GB). Once you know these two things, motherboard maximum and Operating system maximux, then you use the lowest of the two numbers. For example, if your motherboard can take up to 8 GB memory max and you install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, the maximum amount of memory that you can use is still ~4 GB (3.5). To find the type of memory you need, find your computer's product specification and motherboard specification on the HP Web site. Your computer has a model number printed on a label stuck to its case. You can go to www.hp.com and... Read more

A:Upgrading Memory

According to your Product Specification and Motherboard Specification your memory information is this... Memory Installed 1 GBMaximum allowed 4 GB* (1 GB DIMM in each of the 4 slots)Type = 240 pin DDR2 SDRAMSpeed supported PC2-4200 MB/secSupports two channel memory (so you will get better performance if the sticks are all the same size/type/manufacturer and put into paired slots (1-3, 2-4, or 1-2-3-4).Only use non-ECC memory only, unbuffered. Most DIMMS you buy are non-ECC. I would still open the case or look in the BIOS to physically verify what slots are actually filled. You never know, the factory may have put 4 256MB DIMMS, instead of 2 512MBs. By the way, for other folks that want to find their product and motherboard specification: enter your PC's model number into the search line from www.hp.com , click on Support and troubleshooting for your model number (this last post was an a6010n), and then click on Product Information in the middle of the page.

Hi,
First post here - any help appreciated.

I'm trying to help my Mum and Dad upgrade their PC memory to help with performance.

Here are the two PC details - looking for confirmation that I'm ordering the right stuff.

PC 1 - MESH ELITE m800, has 2 x 512 PC3200 DDR 400MHz
PC 2 - MESH ELITE 2.6, has 2 x 256 PC2700 DDR 333 MHz.

Here are my questions.

1. I assume you cannot mix 400MHz and 333Mhz memory - right? (So I cannot mix those memories)
2. Each PC has 2 slots used and 2 slots free - does it need to be added in pairs? I guess so - not sure though.

I'm planning on buying 2 x 512 PC3200 400MZ for PC 1 taking it to 2GB.
And getting 2 x 512MB PC 2700 333MHz for PC 2 taking it to 1.5GB.

Does this make sense?

I'd normally got to amazon and get whatever is cheapest and not completely 'no-name'.

Sound OK?

Thanks
Mike
 

A:Upgrading Memory

Welcome,

Memory is not created equal.....get a name brand would be better....not sure of the make in them now...

You can mix 400MHz and 333Mhz memory but it will always run at the slower of the two.

If the PCs in question have access to the Web try here and click on Scan My System using the PCs you want upgrade and it will give you a good bench mark.

Are u sure ur M/B is Asus Sk8n? I can't find it in newegg, or maybe u mean Asus K8N? What is ur CPU? If it's AMD then max memory clock it can use is 400MHz (PC 3200).

U can use higher clock memory, but ur M/B will only recognize it as 400MHz, so I think u'd be better off buying a 400MHz memory.

I want to upgrade the PSU to one with a higher wattage. I asked for some advice from the store where I bought the original components - Overclockers. They advised I get an Antec TrueBlue 2.0 480W PSU (7th one down on this page http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Antec_103.html). My immediate concern was the position of the fan - i.e. it's not on the rear of the PSU like my current one - presumably the fan faces downwards inside the case. Is this better, worse or no different from one with a rear fan?
Also, if I want to keep the case (and not slice it up) should I check the actual measurements of the existing unit or are PSUs generally standard sizes?

Second, they advised I get a Coolermaster Hyper48 Cooler (1st one on this page: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Coolermaster_122.html)
Is this going to be significantly better than the fan that came with the processor? It's pretty cheap, so I don't mind buying this if it's gonna be beneficial.

Hi there,

Well some of you may have seen the recent thread of mine on upgrading my laptop's memory from 512MB but I've given it a bit more thought and I've decided to give my desktop a kick up the backside with some more RAM, but in turn I'm hoping this will provide me with some spares which I could transfer over to my laptop.

At the moment my computer is running 2x 1GB DDR PC3200 and 1x 512MB DDR PC3200. I will carry on with the upgrade of another 2x 1GB DDR PC3200 being added to my desktop since it needs it with all the software I run for University but I read on the Crucial website that regardless of the speed, all memory will be backwards-compatible, which gave me a thought and a hope that I might be able to kill two birds with one stone as it were and upgrade both my laptop AND desktop and only having the cost of upgrading the desktop.

So, what I'm talking about is when I rip out the PC3200 stick, will I be able to just simply pop this into a spare slot in my laptop or is this type of memory only to be used for desktops or can I safely carry on and add it to one of the PC2700 256MB sticks, thus giving me only a 256MB upgrade but an upgrade all the same!!...or is this not possible or worth it?

I mainly run Photoshop on my laptop and leave all the indepth stuff like video rendering and some of the bigger and newer games to my desktop and to be honest it's less of a waste if I can use a 512MB stick left over from my desktop in place of one ... Read more

No. the pc100 sdram module wouldn`t fit into the ddr dimm slots.

Get at least a 512MB stick of ddr333 or ddr400(pc2700/pc3200) ram.

Take out your 128Mb stick of ram and replace it with the larger ram module.

Make sure that whatever ram you get it is compatible with your mobo.

On the graphics card issue. It can be upgraded, by buying a pci graphics card.

Do a Google search for pci graphics cards.

Hello,

I have got an old computer but would like to upgrade my memory.
At the moment I have 4GB DDR2 PC2-5300 (333 MHz).

Would I be able to upgrade those to 800MHz PC2-6400? Or maybe combine them?

Thanks for the help.

A:Upgrading memory

It depends on a lot of factors, but most likely, you wouldn't see any difference in performance if you did and were able to get them to run at 800 MHz. If you combined them, the memory will run at the slowest speed of the chips anyway.

Now, if you have a reason to need 8 GB over 4 GB, you'll see a difference with the increased memory, but only if the 4 GB is holding you back at this point.

My net book Acer Aspire One 722-BZ454 came with only 2 gb of ram. Since I have been flooded with win 7 upgrades and etc..2 gigs seem to slow down my system. I heard owners of the same net book had removed the 2 gigs and replaced it with 4gigs and found that to be very satisfactory. I bought this net book cause of traveling convience and its low price, but i do not want to add more cost to it, because of it.. I realize it would cost me something, so can anyone here recommend where i can get a good price on a 4 gig ram? Also, its a shame about the removable 2 gig i would have to remove..i go back to the days when a pc ran on only 10MB of ram and that was in Oct 1992...and they were very, very expensive then and even rare to get at times.

Computer memory upgrades for Acer Aspire One 722 Netbook from Crucial.com

Above link is to the Crucial RAM configurator for your netbook at Crucial.com. Take a look at its recommendation for your netbook.

You can also go to Crucial with your netbook and let it sniff your configuration. It will then make a recommendation that should match the link I provided.

$23 for 4 GB direct from Crucial, or you can shop for that exact Crucial product number locally.

I am trying to find a final answer to this one, but I recently purchased a HP Envy x360 and was wondering if I could upgrade the Memory/RAM. M6-ar004dxModel shown above. I have heard both that it can be expanded and that it can't. I just want to know if it is indeed possible or not to expand the memory on this particular laptop. Thanks in advance!

Is it true that you can only upgrade memory with double the amount you already have? This is new to me, but someone told me if I was gonna upgrade my 256Meg DDR ram i have to put another 256Meg in and cannot put in 512meg like I want to give, er, 786Meg? Does this make sense? Is it true? I only have two memory slots and wanted to upgrade to as much as i can. (In stages of course).

Thanks, Paul.
 

A:Upgrading memory

That is not true. It is desirable to have the same brand of memory if possible.
Also, make sure that your system is capable of handling that amount of memory. Check your motherboard manual or website for the info, if you aren't sure.

I'm getting ready to upgrade my motherboard, memory and CPU to E8400 with 8GB DDR2 SDRAM on a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P MB. I want to run Windows XP 32-bit (my current OS) in a dual boot with Windows 7 Beta 64-bit.

My question is:
If I upgrade the motherboard, CPU and memory will Windows XP SP2 be able to recognize it and recover ("Windows has recovered from a serious error") or will it trash the Windows XP installation? I know I will have to install MB, CPU and chipset drivers but besides that, is it do-able without re-installing Windows XP? Also, will having 8GB RAM be detrimental to 32-bit Windows XP?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Upgrading MB, memory and CPU

You will have to install a fresh copy of Windows on the new system.

XP will only see 3GB of memory

Hello guys.

I am about to upgrade my 512mb ddr333 and have bought 1gb ddr400 memory. I know that if i install both then they will end up running at the slowest speed of 300mhz(166mhz actual).
My question is should i just accept this drop in speed for an extra gain of 0.5gb memory or will it run faster if i take out the old 512mb ddr333 and only install the 1gb ddr400 memory stick and set the dram frequency to 200mhz (400mhz effective)?

heres my system:
Windows XP Pro
amd athlon XP 2200 running @ 1.8Ghz

512mb DDR333

I thought I'd share some helpful information to help start the forums!  Upgrading Memory To upgrade memory on HP and Compaq "desktop-style" computers, you really only need to know three things:1) What type of memory your computer needs.2) How many memory slots are available and if you have any that are already open.3) What is the maximum amount of memory you can add.To find the maximum amount you can add, find the maximum memory that your motherboard can handle (4 GB, 8 GB, etc...). You can find this information on your product's motherboard specification on the HP Web site. You also need to know the maximum your operating system can use. For example, 32-bit versions of Windows will only be able to use about 3.5 Gigabytes (of 4 GB). This is true of any operating system (that I know of). 64-bit versions can use 8 GBs or more depending on their edition (Windows 7 Ultimate can go clear up to 192 GB). Once you know these two things, motherboard maximum and Operating system maximux, then you use the lowest of the two numbers. For example, if your motherboard can take up to 8 GB memory max and you install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, the maximum amount of memory that you can use is still ~4 GB (3.5). To find the type of memory you need, find your computer's product specification and motherboard specification on the HP Web site. Your computer has a model number printed on a label stuck to its case. You can go to www.hp.com and... Read more

A:Upgrading Memory

According to your Product Specification and Motherboard Specification your memory information is this... Memory Installed 1 GBMaximum allowed 4 GB* (1 GB DIMM in each of the 4 slots)Type = 240 pin DDR2 SDRAMSpeed supported PC2-4200 MB/secSupports two channel memory (so you will get better performance if the sticks are all the same size/type/manufacturer and put into paired slots (1-3, 2-4, or 1-2-3-4).Only use non-ECC memory only, unbuffered. Most DIMMS you buy are non-ECC. I would still open the case or look in the BIOS to physically verify what slots are actually filled. You never know, the factory may have put 4 256MB DIMMS, instead of 2 512MBs. By the way, for other folks that want to find their product and motherboard specification: enter your PC's model number into the search line from www.hp.com , click on Support and troubleshooting for your model number (this last post was an a6010n), and then click on Product Information in the middle of the page.

I'm helping a friend upgrade his HP Pavillion a1030n computer. Right now it has two 256K stick installed in the No. 1 and 3 slots (from left to right). I was going to upgrade with two 512 sticks. Would adding those up the RAM to 1.5 Gigs or do all four have to match? And it adding the 512 will work, do I put those in the 2 and 4 slots or put the 512s side by side in the first two slots and the two 256s in the 3 and 4 slots? Or do I just add two more 256Ks to have a total of 1 GB?

Hi, I have 512mb (2x256mb) RAM in my computer, i want to upgrade because i am doing lots of video editing and movie making. I was thinking about upgrading to 2 gigs but i was told this by someone
""overkill on Ram can be counter productive!! Boot up takes longer (more of windows loaded into RAM)>> CD and DVD burning slower, more of the Data cached in RAM!! I settled for 1.5 gigs< enough for CAD programs and Photoshop to run good but not too much to slow down booting and CD burning !!!"

is this true?

I was also told

"2GB's is generally overkill, 1GB outta do it"
"2 gigs would help in the long run, or if you are doing some hardcore video editing"

they are opposite sayings, so what do i believe here?
Please help me with how much i should get, thanks

I have a Matsonic MS9327E+USB mainboard with a pentium 2.4 GHZ processor. It currently operates with two SDRAM 256M memory chips. Recently I purchased a 1GB DDR PC2100 266 MHz Registered ECC 128x72 CL2.5 2.5V 184 Pin DIMM for use as an upgrade. The two SDRAM chips were removed, and then I installed the new DDR. When I tried to boot-up, my monitor stopped working, forcing me to remove the DDR and return to the SDRAM. Is there some kind of programming I need to do; or have I purchased a dud?

The Pc is still adequate for my usage, nevertheless I thought to increase its performance, by adding:
2x1 Gb RAM cards to provide extra margins1 SSD 32 Gb drive to work in parallel to the existing one, to increase Cache Memory

QUESTIONS:
1) Are these 2 alterations redundant one to the other?
2) Can an upgraded RAM reduce boot time latency?
3) or, instead, can an SSD cover the functions of an upgraded RAM?

Hi there
For Office 2GB RAM is probably OK however I'd look at installing another 2GB RAM.

swapping the HDD for an SSD would certainly help -- For your applications just get a 128 GB one now -- they are very cheap compared with what they used to be -- .

Normally getting an SSD is probably the best improvement you can make to a PC -- but you should normally have 4GB of RAM. A 32 GB SSD is likely to be old and at least an order of magnitude slower than the current crop of SSD's -- a 128 GB Samsung SSD can be had for around 95 USD these days. Well worth it in anybody's book.

You can then also look at using the 500GB disk as an external Disk -- use a SATA ==>USB connector.
(I'm assuming the pavilion is a laptop).

I wonder if anybody has ever solved this issue.  I have a 980 MT I run 8 x 2 GB memory with no issues.  According to specs the machine will handle 4 x 4GB in a 64 bit enviroment.  I started out with 4 x 4 of 1600 DDR3 memory that everybody said would work through backwards compatibility.  No go.  Arrived at BIOS and memory was populated, but machine never booted or completed repairs.  It just gave me messages such as Kernel Security Check Failure on the ole BSOD and restarted over and over.  I contacted G.Skill and was told I would have to get the 1333 memory, which I did, but still the same issue.  It's definitely looking like this just can't be done and apparently others have arrived at the same conclusion, contrary to posted online specs.
Additional info:  my CPU is the Intel i5-650 and a look at the Intel site also indicates 16 GB capable of DDR3 1066/1333
I am in the process of maybe answering my own question.  Not being a memory expert I have not noticed the distinction between the PC3-10600 4 x 2 GB ram I'm running with no issues in my machine and the memory PC3-1066 memory that the Intel site says this processor will support up to 16 GB. There is apparently a difference, but I'm kind of afraid to try any more new memory that I might have to also find a way to sell.  From what I have discovered my existing memory runs at 1333 MHz but the other memory runs at 1066 MHz, so you have to wonder if 16 GB ...

1066 and 1333 are too slow.
DDR3 1600  must be used.
Low Density 1.35v
4 gig dimms max size.
1R or 2R not 4R.
DDR3 1066 = (PC3 8500)  too slow
DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600)  too slow
DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)  This is the REQUIRED Speed for loading 16 Gigs of ram and it must be LOW Density.
DDR3 PC3-12800 • 9-9-9-24 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.35V •  512 Meg x 64 •

Many INTEL Chipsets cannot use 4 rank or 8 rank memory.

They must be low density 1R /2R or they don't work period end.

The term “rank” was created and defined by JEDEC, the memory industry standards group. On a DDR, DDR2, or DDR3 memory module, each rank has a 64-bit wide data bus.  In its simplest form, a DIMM with DRAM chips on just one side would contain a single 64-bit chunk of data and would be called a single- rank (1R) module.  DIMMs with chips on both sides often contain at  least two 64-bit chunks of data and are referred to as dual-rank (2R) modules.  Some DIMMs can have DRAM chips on both sides but are configured so that they contain two 64-bit data chunks on each side—four in total—and are referred to as quad-rank (4R) modules.
