Maximum RAM for old computer with operating system updated

I have old a laptop Compaq Presario C700 initially provided with 1 GB of RAM and Windows Vista.  This computer has since been updated for Windows 7 32-bit and upgrade to 2 GB of RAM.  I checked Crucial site and he informed me that the maximum RAM for this computer is the 2 GB that I am currently.  Despite this, I read the posts of people successfully 3 to 4GB of RAM installed and still having their computer function properly.  I also read that the maximum RAM that can run on a Windows 7 32-bit system is 4 GB.

Since I now have Windows 7, I will be able to further improve my computer to a 4 GB of RAM or the hardware of the laptop itself prevents me to do?

The manual for a Compaq Presario C700 says on page 2 supports up to 2 GB of RAM:

With all computers, you have two factors limiting the amount of RAM memory that may be installed, or the motherboard, and the version of Windows installed. In your case, it is the motherboard that prevent you from adding more RAM.

    Note: the manufacturer was required to provide a way to reinstall Windows. If it is not a set of disks with the computer, there will be a hidden restore partition (do not be confused with the system restore), you would use to return the computer to the State of the OOBE (Out of Box Experience).

    Usually, just by pressing F11 continuously during the computer startup to display a boot menu offering the option you need.

    You may need to contact the manufacturer of your hardware (Dell) to see what options they have to repair Windows.

    I build themes and I want to support all devices.  I know that if I build a theme on a device and

    Operating system that will work for other devices and operating systems.

    Can someone tell me what base unit will be other devices?

    example: Bold 9700 will work with the Bold 9650, 9000 "BOLD" and so on (it was just an example and probably inaccurate)

    Thank you for your help in advance

    Hello

    Just a quick note... 9700 themes work with 5.0 screen 480 x 360 OS (89xx, 96xx) dimension and visa versa 96xx and 89xx 5.0 OS themes will work on the 9700

    85xx theme OS 5.0 works on 83xx 5.0 OS visa versa 83xx 5.0 OS themes will work on the 85xx with an OS 5.0 but remember the layout of the 83xx series is very different the 85xx, such as dialogs etc... If the theme of predict a 83xx look like funny on the 85xx, which means that the old layout

    Storm 1 themes 5.0 OS will work on the Storm 2 and visa versa as it is exported OS 5.0

    And it's just like all the other models have screen sizes different etc. such as the Pearl, the torch and the Flip

    I hope this has helped!

  • How to deal with operating system windows 8.1 and apps on usb device

    Hi, I have a laptop Lenovo G505. Windows 8 64-bit was preinstalled in it. Later, I upgraded to 8.1. Laptop is almost 9 months and still under warranty. Since a few days, built Lenovo solution Center alert this analysis of hardware detected failures in one or more devices. On suggestion of Lenovo, I ran hdtune pro app in my machine and it also detected 3 hard drive errors. As my machine is under warranty, Lenovo is ready to replace my hard drive with a new one. But they say that it is the responsibility of the customer to return the windows 8.1 operating system and install in the new drive and their liability is limited to the replacement of the hard disk only. I am not computer savvy and I request concerned to guide me how to deal with operating system windows 8.1 on external media like USB, DVD, and install in the new drive. I also installed a number of apps and paid games. Therefore, I would like to resume these games also files so that I need not buy again. Assistance in this regard is required.

    Hello Mohan,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community Forum.

    I can of course understand the situation and will be happy to help with your query.

    Let me ask you;

    • You have the key product for Windows 8 or 8.1?

    You can create an installation media (DVD/USB) for Windows 8.1 and re-install when you want. However, in order to create an installation media for Windows 8.1, you need the product key. If you don't have the product key for Windows 8.1, you can not create installation media.

    You can create the installation media for Windows 8 by using the product key Windows 8 If you have. In this case, install you Windows 8 first and then go to Windows 8.1 through store.

    As far as your paid apps (purchased by store) are concerned, you should be able to install them as soon as you sign in with the same Microsoft Account where apps were purchased.

    You can see the steps indicated by Ronnie Vernon replied on 24 December2013, re - install paid apps.

    You can follow the steps below to create installation media.

    1. Run the program Windows 8.1 configuration or installation of Windows 8 (depending on the availability of the product key for the specific operating system.
    2. When you are prompted to run or save the file, choose run

    3. When you are prompted to enter a product key, enter the 25-character product key, that you received when you purchased Windows 8.1 (or Windows 8).

    4. When you are prompted to install Windows 8.1 (or Windows 8), select install by creating media and then click Next.

    5. Select the type of media you want to use: either a Flash DRIVE or a DVD.

    To create a USB flash drive

    1. Click on the USB flash drive.

    2. Plug the USB key into a USB port on your PC.

    3. When you are prompted, select the USB key that you want to use, and then click Next.

      If you have files on the USB flash drive, it will remove them.

    To create a DVD

    1. Click on the ISO file , and then select the location where to save the ISO file.

    2. Insert a blank recordable DVD into your DVD drive.

    3. Burn the ISO of the DVD file using Windows disc Image burner, or another program DVD burning.

    Note: Ensure that the USB or DVD key that you use has nothing else stored on it and has a sufficient free space to download the Windows 8.1 Installer: about 2.3 GB for the 64-bit version.

    You can also read the article below to create a USB stick recovery.

  • I have a problem of my catalogs of PES 10 displacement and the photos attached from my old computer with Windows XP on my new computer with Windows 10.  The problem is that I can't remember the arrangement of the original tree of my photo folders when I r

    I have a problem of my catalogs of PES 10 displacement and the photos attached from my old computer with Windows XP on my new computer with Windows 10.  How can I keep my original photo folders tree arrangement when I restore backups of catalog on the new machine?

    The problem arises because Windows 10 is equipped with a new tree structure with new names for many of its branches.  Tree of Windows XP starts to Local Disk (C), and then does the following: Documents and settings, Susan [it's me the user], My Documents, SusanPhotos (the folder that I created that contains my photos) and then several subfolders and subfolders with my photos grouped by theme, for example the Puglia Italy and Italy-Roma.  My new computer Windows 10 has a different tree and different names for a large number of branches from early on: OS (C) [instead of Local Disk (C)], users, Susan, Documents [instead of the old My Documents], SusanPhotos [what I created] and then the subfolders and so on.

    Because of the new tree and the new names of the branch, I can't find a way to restore my PES 10 catalogues and photos attached to them to where I want to that they.  What I want to do is put the files from SusanPhotos to the Windows 10 Documents folder so that I find myself with the following tree, essentially the same as what I had on my old machine: OS (C), users, Documents, Susan, SusanPhotos, then the original subfolders with my photos.  Apparently 10 PSE does not allow me to move folders of photos in the Organizer, so that the pictures stay connected.

    PES 10 offers 3 options for restoration: Original, personalized and customized, keeping the original structure of the file.  Here's what happens to each:

    (1) original creates new folders with the old names and the structure of the tree, parallel to the tree Windows 10 has instead of inside the tree Windows 10.

    (2) custom with the original structure of the file is the restaurant where I want (within the SusanPhotos) but retains all branches superfluous-instant initial tree of Windows XP, production: BONES (C), users, Documents, Susan, SusanPhotos, Documents and settings [carried over from the old computer], Susan, My Documents, SusanPhotos, Roma-Italy and Italy-Puglia and so on.

    (3) custom (without checking the original file structure box) makes every SusanPhotos but without any organization: OS (C),..., SusanPhotos, Italy-Puglia and Italy-Roma and all other folders at the same level instead of in their original nested groups with subfolders.

    The first two methods you end up with a tree that is chaotic with two parallel trunks or a single trunk but with several redundant layers carried over from the old computer.  The third ends with no tree at all.

    One solution would be to make a Custom Restore with the original structure of the file and then use PSE10 to move the folders that I would like.  However, AFAIK, PSE10 I cannot move entire folders of photos, only of individual pictures.  With thousands of photos in hundreds of cases, the time required for the movement of individual pictures is prohibitive.  PSE10 allows me to move the catalog folder, but apparently not the folders containing the photos.

    The result is that at this time I have no solution to my problem.  Can you help me find a way to restore my photos while keeping their original organization?

    One solution would be to make a Custom Restore with the original structure of the file and then use PSE10 to move the folders that I would like.  However, AFAIK, PSE10 I cannot move entire folders of photos, only of individual pictures.

    You simply use the 'Files' Panel on the left. Your folder tree appears. Simply, you drag and drop the folder to move with all its subfolders in the desired master file. That works exactly as in Solution Explorer, so be patient, you receive no message of progress until it is completed.

    You did a good job to understand the situation. I think that might help you is to understand that changes in the way default folders are created in a different version of Windows can be ignored if you do not use these structure 'default', from the shortcuts to your main folder of the user.

    I create a master folder 'My Photos' directly under the C: root.

    When I restore, I use the "custom" choice, as you have discovered, I only specify this folder in the restore process, and I completely ignore the default shortcuts to 'Documents' or 'Image '.

    Hello.

    According to HP, they offer no drivers for Windows 7, but in many cases the driver for Vista works on Win 7, then you can try this. If you have 64-bit Windows 7, then download Vista(64-bit), if you have 32-bit Windows 7, download Vista.

    The drivers can be found here.
