Need help /advice upgrading Tags: Memory RAM Last response: August 14, 2012 8:02 PM in Memory Share Kazzack August 14, 2012 1:50:07 PM Hey guys. I want to upgrade my RAM, as i know that's whats stopping me from playing better games and running numerous applications on my pc at once. I want to upgrade my RAM, but wasn't too sure on how to do it. Like what RAM can my system support, what makes, does anything work? And stuff like that. I don't really know what i'm doing. My PC is a Packard Bell iXtreme X2712, so yeah it's about 6-7 years old. I have upgraded the graphics card from the standard one it had to a GeForce 8400GS And also the Power box / Supply to an Arctic 500. And i now need to upgrade my 2.00gb RAM. My DxDiag reports and info are here Anything else you guys might need to help me out and i'll get it to you. IF anyone can help me out, that would be great... Thanks.

Kazzack August 14, 2012 6:26:33 PM well, i've only actually got 1 RAM in my PC, and it only came with one. so that must be a 2gb one? Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer GhislainG a c 75 } Memory August 14, 2012 8:02:14 PM What does the OS show? If it shows 2GB, then use CPU-Z to see what module is installed. Edit: I have yet to find a site that claims that 2GB modules can be installed. CPU-Z will identify what module is installed. Note that even with 4GB installed only 3.25GB at most would be available.
