SBJEWEL saidUpgrade is recommended. Otherwise your system still runs normally, but whatever RAM you install your Windows can only see as much as 3.2GB – a little waste of resource.
Cool… Now i am a dead man… I am using Windows XP still. That means i need to upgrade my OS also for that 64 bit. right ?
I would check to see how much RAM your computer supports, then take it to the max
A few things to remember:
- static electricity kills hardware with just 1 touch.. make sure you’re grounded
- your computer runs smoother when all your RAM sticks are the same
- unplug your system before wandering inside
- Windows will automatically detect and reconfigure itself for the new memory.
My system supports 16GB, but I only have 4GB of memory because it’s all I need.. then again, I do have an extra 1.5Gb in my video card
You know i burnt my power supply two times for causing of static electricity. Very bad electric service over here… Thanks for your info.
DoubleX saidI didn’t know there is also has a Windows XP 64-bit version ! I must try it. Hope my Core 2 Due processor support this 64-bit XP version. ? I need more speed.
SBJEWEL saidOnly if it is Windows XP 64-bit version.
btw; I am still using Windows XP. I like it. It’s easy to use. Hope it will support at least 4 GB of RAM. Right ?

Wait for a month or two, you’ll have to re-install windows anyway
Let me guess… mac user?
Not in my case. I don’t need to re-install my windows again and again. Though i always face some trouble time to time…
If you are using windows use good cleaners/optimizers like ccleaner or tuneup utilities. I think you are on mac or linux
Why? I’m running on Win7 since beta was released and I had to reinstall it only once – when I was updating to SSD. If you are not a noob, you never need to reinstall windows. Right now I’m thinking about purchasing a fpp licence for win7 so I’ll probably use it until microsoft stops supporting it (2020)
I was just kidding. I have no idea how good (or bad) Windows has become after Windows XP. But I remember the troubles, the viruses, the firewall, the cleaners, the services, the registry, all the stuff and time needed to keep it running, kind of a little nightmare.
I’ve been using this Ubuntu installation for 3 years or so. Still working as the first day, that is, I still cannot sync my iPod
...fpp licence for win7…(2020)
I don’t know what is that, but sounds scary
Just added another 2GB of RAM stick in my another PCI slot. Total 4GB RAM. But sadly to say; my computer shows only 2.96 GB of RAM in total. Checked my Bios Settings also…. It shows….
Total Memory 4096 MB
M. C. A slot 2048 MB
M. C. B slot 2048 MB.
You guys are right i hope… But right now can’t upgrade my OS 32 bit to 64 bit. Only question is….
What should i do ? Should i keep those both sticks or unplug one ?
Is there any problem could be happen if i keep those both Sticks ?
