Hi,

You would have been better off factory restoring the laptop after you upgraded the RAM.

But if you don't want to do that you could clean the system and perform a disk check on the hard drive.

First off all you need to clean the temp and temp internet files and also the registry.

For this you will need to download and install a program called ccleaner.
This is a very useful tool when it comes to cleaning the system of unwanted files and registry keys which are obsolete. Read the info first before use. Get ccleaner here >>>

Once you are done with ccleaner you will then need to perform a disk check.
To do this click on the start menu and again click on Run. In the box type cmd a command line window will open. For Vista type cmd in the search box and hit enter.
In the command line window type chkdsk /r and hit enter. You will get a message saying that the volume cannot be locked and would you like to schedule a disk check next time the computer restarts. Type Y and then hit enter. Close the window and restart your pc.

Disk check will start before loading the operating system and could take 2 to 3 hours to complete depending on the state of the volume.

If this still is not to your standard then you probably are best off backing up all your data and performing a factory restore on the laptop.

If you need anymore advice please post back.


Good luck.

I bought a 4gb ram upgrade and its still running slow why?


If the upgrade was added to the 2 GB of existing RAM, your computer will run at the slowest speed. That's why some manufacturers recommend replacing existing RAM with the upgraded memory

I have purchase a memory upgrade KByte and not sure how to install. I went to www.kbytememory.com and found nothing to help me.


This looks very much like my old M90... you pop out the battery, locate and unscrew the memory door, and then snap in the new memory. Then restart the laptop... if it beeps at your (this is called a beep code) then the BIOS doesn't recognize one or both of the sticks. Assuming all goes well it should prompt you and say something to the effect of 'amount of system memory has changed, press F1 to continue or F2 for bios'... go into BIOS and confirm its reading the new memory amount (2GB will say 2064). This model apparently only accepts 2 x 1GB sticks so hopefully you didn't order 2GB sticks... unless there's a BIOS update you can install the mobo won't recognize memory sticks greater than 1GB. Good luck.

Adding computer memory


The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

Runs very slow, can memory be added?


More memory can always help. How much Ram is installed currently?
Also, do you run any anti virus or anti spyware programs? Malware has been known for making machines crawl.
Ram on that laptop can be upgraded.
2GB Standard 4GB Max
DDR2 SDRAM
SO DIMM 200-pin

Slow and choppy karaoke video from my laptop


Orginally your unit comes with 256MB of RAM wit a shared 64MB of VGA. If you haven't added any RAM yet, then I suggest upgrade it by adding another 512MB or 1 GB of DDR PC2700.


Hope this helps.
