A decision about my Memory

Posted in Uncategorized on October 25, 2011 by mistersinister

Despite my desire to have 4GB of RM and a 64-bit WINDOWS OS it looks as if I will be playing it safe with 2GB of RAM and a 32-bit OS. If only FFMPEG could do what Freemake Video Converter does I would be more than happy to stay with my Debian-based Crunchbang Linux… I probably would not even upgrade the RAM……………….. hmmmm, yes I would!

Doesn’t it seem like this would support 4GB of RAM, even if only from one DIMM???

In to the BIOS

One reason for the abysmal video performance (ASIDE from the onboard chip) could be the 8MB of VRAM that I found in the BIOS… I wonder if this is some mistake as I understood a certain amount of the RAM to be set aside for video performance, somewhere between 128 and 256MB of RAM. I’m going to try and update the BIOS and see if this unlocks the setting. If not… ???

The Short List of Upgrades

Posted in Uncategorized on October 23, 2011 by mistersinister

Win 7 Ultimate
2GB RAM
500GB Hard Drive
6-cell Battery… I’m getting 2-2.5 hours from my 3-cell, and THAT SUCKS.

Acer 255 Ram Upgrade, basically the same on my 257…
