I know that my L drive is verrrryyyy full, but it pretty much needs to be kept.

Anyway... Can this computer hold only 2GB ram? What about Physical Address Extention? Is this possible on my computer and where could I find more information?

Thank you :)

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system. You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.
