Hello everyone,

 

My computer has a Intel 2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33 GHz with 2.0GB of Ram. The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit. The Motherboard is Hewlett-Packard, model 0AACh. Current memory is DDR2, 2GBytes. I also have a  NVIDIA Geforce 8400GS graphic card with memory of 512 MBytes. Can I add more Ram to this computer? Thank you for your help.

 

Larry Brown

If this is the correct motherboard you point out you can go up to 8GB

You can go www.crucial.com and run their analyzer and it will tell what you can do for memory so you can order the correct ones

 Bear in mind that with the 32 bit version of Windows, you won't be able to use more than 4 GB.  To use more, you'll need the 64 bit version.  That's because with 32 binary bits the biggest address you can have is 4 GB.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Thank you Niweg for your reply. I was considering to get the 8 GB. Now I know to get the 4 GB.  :clapping:
