Answers :

If you do not mind the trouble it would be best to unhook all cables and take it to a place like Best Buy and have them install more or larger memory modules, which most places do for free anyway. If you want to do it yourself then let me know. It is still fairly easy. Before you take it somewhere make sure and look on "My Computer" and jot down the exact memory first before unplugging it.

How do i change the memory bus speed on my dell optiplex 170l? The CPU is an Intel Celeron 2.4GHz. The mother board processor speed is 400MHz and the Bios indicates a memory bus speed of 266MHz and does not seem to have an adjustable option. If the CPU can run at 400MHz then why can't I get the memory bus to run at 400MHz?

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270 running on windows XP pro. It has 2MB RAM and 80GB hard disc drive. When I checked to see if I could run Windows Vista Ultimate, the checker said I could, but might need to upgrade the video card. Can you give me some ideas on what I will need? Thank you.
