I installed 4gb from 1gb into a Dell latitude 630 and a win7 OEM install disk. Everything works ok but it shows 2gb in memory and seems kind of slow. I'm thinkin the BIOS , went to Dell update and they only show xp as a system for this laptop. Any idea how I can update the drivers? Thanx.

Hi Evets123 :)

The BIOS can be updated no matter what OS is installed on the computer/laptop. The OS and the BIOS aren't dependent of each other, they are separate entities. You can even upgrade the BIOS without having an OS installed if your BIOS supports it. Here's the drivers webpage for your laptop, a Dell Latitude D630.

http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/latitude-d630/drivers

Note that you can change the "Operating System" for "BIOS" and then you'll the latest BIOS update for it, D630_A19.exe. If you are missing more drivers, you can take the ones for Windows Vista since they are also Windows 7 compatible. If you would like help with that, let me know and I'll assist you :)
