Anyone ever have their SDRAM just... fall out?

I heard some clicking in my wives Dell Inspiron 1545 when we moved it.

I opened the memory access and found a 1MB SDRAM card just... sitting there.

I found a .pdf on a tech manual and reinstalled it.

Anyone ever have this happen to them?

Also - I noticed that I can easily add a card to this slot that would add another MB of Ram - But I am unaware as to what to order.

This is what the memory looks like - any place I should order it in specific?

That is the model - any advice?

Its usually your os that limits you on the amount of memory that it will recognize and be able to use. If you run windows 7 32 bit it will only recognize 4 gb of ram.

Depends on which OS you are running. If you are running 32 bit Windows then your system will not see any more that 3GB If you have the 64 bit windows you can run up to 8GB. Best performance will be achieved with matched sets of RAM but more a 2GB and a 1 GB will run better than 2 1GG

I guess it also depends what generation of laptop and motherboards maximum support for size... should be able to look up the model and find out how much it can accept (but as previously mentioned, over 4GB serves no functional purpose in 32 bit OS, in a 64 bit OS there is no limit to accessible RAM within the current limits)

Actually, 64-bit Windows 7 Pro, Enterprise and Ultimate will run up to 192GB of RAM. Home Basic is artificially capped at 8GB, and Home Premium is capped at 16GB.

Holy **** - that was like a mind cram.

Awesome - I will go cheap and simply add a 2MB to it - I am ordering an upgraded Network card anyway.

Thanks,

TF
