hi i have fixed my issue of upgrading from xp in my last post

i just upgraded ram and installed vista

When you plug it in, Vista will tell you (in the drive's Properties) whether it can be used for Readyboost.

I tried using Readyboost with several USB flash drives, but gave up as it didn't seem to make any noticeable difference. I believe it needs to be a drive with very fast read/write speeds to function.

You can only try it and see. The flash drives I had obviously weren't fast enough, but it wasn't something I considered worth pursuing.
