I'm hoping someone could give me some advice about upgrading my Amilo Xi1546.
I want to improve the performance for image editing - I use photoshop loads and have noticed I've started running out of RAM when editing large images. I've also nearly filled both my C: & D: drives! Just opening folders and files seems to have got sluggiush too.
1.) I'm thinking of doubling my RAM to 4GB, but have read a few posts elsewhere suggesting the BIOS might not support this - does anyone know for sure, and will this actually help me?
2.) I'm wondering if I can swap one of my hard disks for a larger, faster one. Is this something I can do without un-installing everything and will it actually help matters? If not can I alter the RAID configuration to help speed things up or get me more space?
I'm a novice when it comes to computer hardware so replies in simple English would be appreciated
My spec (as per the box!) is:
Core2 duo T7200 2.00GHz
2 x 80GB SATA
ATI Mobility Radeon x1800
VRAM 256MB GDDR3
The OS was Windows XP Home when I bought the machine in 2006, I've since upgraded to Vista Premium 32Bit
Thanks for your help!
