Yes, that's right - I just got a quick photo; but the slots on the bottom ("3) is correct. My monitor plug is in the top of the three (only on my Dell tower, of course). You're a genius at this, I see (wow!). And, what you told me is just about what the Dell tech told me on the phone - that I could be utilizing about 1/3 more RAM.
I GREATLY appreciate your help here, and I'll probably end up paying Dell this money . . . only, not right now. I'm really financially strapped, as I just had my dad's Memorial Service just two days ago (http://www.polk-fl.net/staff/weeklyc...FrankCHild.pdf
Thanks so much again, Prof for your help. God bless . . . Larry Hild
