You cannot create a new partition without first shrinking the D drive. If you cannot shrink the D drive more then 9MB, run Disk Defragmenter. if that does not help, you have unmovable system files that cannot be shifted around the drive enough to create another partition.

Secondly, your RAM has nothing to do with your Hard Drive. RAM is used with the processor to store your processes and information as it is being used, like a desk. The hard drive is used like a file cabinet of sorts.

Your new ram( if it will even work with your old) as it is NEVER a good idea to mix ram will automaticaly default to the lower speed. I do however think you'll be lucky to even get your system to boot with the new ram installed. You'll soon find out. Best of luck. Fabe
