Adding memory to your PC

Question : I have a Dell Dimension 4500S that came with 256MB of memory, and I added another 256MB module myself. Can I replace one of the 256MB modules with a 1GB chip without any problems ?

Answer : Adding the 1GB chip alongside one of the 256MB modules shouldn't be a problem, as long as you buy the proper type of memory for the machine. According to specifications on Dell's website, the Dimension 4500S can take up to 2GB of memory. While some motherboards require that memory modules be installed in matched pairs of the same capacity, the Dimension 4500S can use a mix of modules with different amounts of memory.

The easy way to get the right chips for just about any computer is to go to an online RAM retailer like Crucial ( www.crucial.com ) or Kingston ( www.kingston.com ). On the main page, choose the computer's manufacturer and model number from the drop-down menus to see the appropriate RAM modules, installation guides and other upgrade information for your computer.

Instructions on how to upgrade memory for your Dell PC can also be found by going to the Dell support page at tinyurl.com/6e5xcp.
