  • How-Tos: How to upgrade the memory in a 6-year-old PC

    I want to increase the memory in my six-year-old XP PC from 1GB to 2GB to accommodate Windows 7, but keep getting Memtest errors with the pair of 512MB modules I’m using. I receive multiple error reports when I install them, plus stop errors or sudden shutdowns. The machine seems happy to run three RAM modules, but not four. Crucial advised me to increase the VDIMM from 2.5 to 2.7, which made no difference, and reduce the memory frequency from DDR400 to DDR333 (adjusted to 320MHz), which solves the problem. Why are these problems occurring and how can I run the memory at the correct frequency? Will I need to upgrade my motherboard and processor to install Windows 7?

    I recently bought a Palicomp PC running Windows 7 64bit and a 512MB ATI Radeon HD 5450 graphics card.

Disabling the ATI drivers fixes the problem, but also removes some functionality. Palicomp advised me to uninstall and reinstall the drivers, but this didn’t solve the problem. A Google search for answers has revealed several other users of this graphics card with the same problem. Is there a definitive fix, please?
