What is the best source for RAM chips? I want to upgrade my RAM in my Dell XPS M1730 laptop. I presently have only 2GB's of RAM in my computer. I can go up to 8.
I used this site a few months ago. Everything worked out fine. http://www.memoryupgrade.pro/dell-memory-upgrades-dell-ram-expansions-xps-xps-m1730.html
It says that you're limited to 4GB though (unless you typed in the wrong computer model number).
What should I be looking for regarding types of RAM? Which is the fastest? SRAM or DRAM or other? I used to know some of this but my own internal cerebral memory chips are failing in the recall department.
You're going to be limited to whatever your motherboard can support. Unless you're shopping for a new motherboard, it looks like you need the following: DDR2 667MHz
Also, when I change the RAM do I have to mess with the registry? Do I need to download any drivers? Please forgive my near computer anatomy based illiteracy....
Nothing like that; power off, open the case, find the memory sticks, remove them, plug in your new one(s), close case, power on. Done.
