You might need to provide more information.

Which version of Windows?

How much do you have?

What motherboard model?

what you need to do is ascertain what type and manufacturer your motherboard is then go to that web site and it will tell you the max ram allowed on your motherboard. If you have the manual it will tell you in there. To ascertain the motherboard data click here and run Belarc its free.

Hi guys
I have WIM ME, and an ABIT KT7A Raid motherboard
No additional memory has been added yet, but I'm waiting for delivery of 512MB from Novatec,when I spoke to a sales person at another vendor, they said that 512 was the maxium amount of addional RAM I could add on 14GHZ.

But the sales person at Novatec said I could add more.I intend to use the 512 RAM this time,as it is now ordered, but I was wondering about this for future reference.

The maximum you can use has nothing to do with the processor speed but is primarily to do with the max the MoBo will support (in this case Supports up to 1.5GB of PC100/PC133 SDRAM) and then what the OS will take (suggested max under Me is 512 mb)

Thanks Guys

I need to ask you all, do you think it is advisable to go ahead with upgading memory from 512, to add another 512MB, or could I be asking for trouble.
When I bought this PC I just assumed I would be able to upgrade the memory, I need more memory or a new PC.........HELP

I think you need to try it and see what happens. I wouldn't expect it to work though...

If you have much more than 512mb memory, you are into the realms of the law of diminishing returns.Personally I would spend the money towards a graphic card upgrade.
