Maximum memory for Vostro 1700

Hi.

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?  

Thanks.

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.

Hi.

 

I never tried 8GB in my Vostro 1700.  I just settled for 4GB.  I never found out of 8GB would be recognized.

Re: Maximum memory for Vostro 1700

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).

Re: Maximum memory for Vostro 1700

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...

Thank you.

No, I am talking about the memories that are inserted at the right side of the VOSTRO 1700.
