Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I added more memory to my microsoft vista 1501 and i don't see the change in my memory?


Answers :

Make sure you have the latest updates and services packs from Windows Update.

Also, it's important to note that Windows XP or Vista will only "see" 3-4GB of memory (depending on the PC).

If you have more memory than that, you'd have to switch to Vista x64 to "see" this memory.
