Memory Question

I am having not much lucky finding out what I need to know. Dell forum isn't helping either.

I have a 4 year old Dell Inspiron E1705. I have W7 Pro 64x and wondering if I can go over the 2GB I have of memory. It would definitely help for PS/CAD.

Where can I find this out?

Unfortunately no, you can't. According to Dell's specifications on this machine 2GB is the maximum RAM.

it would be a motherboard limitation. 5 years ago 2gb RAM was only on high end pcs, most people just had 128 - 512.

You can run the Crucial Scan. Maybe it tells you something different - although I doubt it. It is probably time for a new Computer.

It is limited by design.

From the Dell E1705 Tech Specs.

If it is just needed to surf, email and edit docs you can run it until it dies a natural death...

Otherwise, upgrade and donate it to a friend/charity. Your "hand-me-down" may be an "upgrade" for them.
