Hi everyone, I have a dell vostro v13 laptop that I absolutely love but I would love to pack some ram into this thing. Currently I have only 2gb of ram in here but was wondering if I can upgrade to more then 4gb. I only have one slot available for RAM and I am running 64 bit windows 7. If I purchase an 8gb stick would my laptop utilize all 8gbs?
I have a client that has a Dell Inspiron 17r and it only said 4GB total for 2 slots (2X2GB) and I installed 2X4GB and it worked. So I think its a crap shoot. Go somewhere like CompUSA and have them install 2X4GB in the system and test it. If it doesn't work they won't charge you and their install on memory is free.
