I know the maximum amount of memory advertised for the Vostro 1700 is 4GB RAM, but often these specs change. I want to know if 8GB RAM installed in my Vostro 1700 will work. Might there be a BIOS update to enable this, or has anyone tried this to see if it would just work?
I'm assuming you are running 64 bit windows?
Note 2×4Gb RAM Modules may be very costly (approx $400) and probably not worthwhile at the moment.
Maybe to late for you:
I'm running with 6GB under Windows 7 X64.
One of problems I have:
some USB-Devices will not found the actual drivers on this maschine (Windows Phone with WP7)
And the integrated Webcam is not working (driver missing).
I am sorry I am writting here. I am kind of lost. What kind of external memories are supported by the Vostro 1700?
I had a problem trying to put one of them...
